Here are some snaps from today’s Boat Trip! It was great fun!
As you can see – we finished the week with our history walk of Herne Hill and what a beautiful, sunny day we had for it! We learned all sorts of historical facts about the area including that Thomas Bristowe, who was the man who ensured Brockwell Park became a public space, died the day Brockwell Park was declared a public space.
Throughout the rest of the week we have been learning about negative numbers and rounding in Maths. We discussed where we might use negative numbers such as for temperature and then learned to find the difference between positive and negative numbers by counting through zero. We have also been working hard on our rounding of numbers. We can now round to the nearest 1,000 and some of us can even round to the nearest 10,000!
In Literacy we have been reading The Iron Man by Ted Hughes. So far we have written two recounts as the seagulls who watched The Iron Man arrive on their beach, crash to the ground and put himself back together again – a very bizarre thing indeed! Please come in and read some of the children’s recounts if you can.
Things to Remember;
1. If you haven’t already please can you make sure your child has a water bottle in class as I really don’t want to be sending children out of class to get water if they are really thirsty.
2. Our first school trip is this Thursday 29th September.
Have a great weekend!
Last week we learned about similes in Literacy. Write a short descriptive paragraph about the picture below using at least three similes. Think about the five senses!
This weeks spellings have silent letters. Comment below if you can think of any more words that have silent letters….
These are the rest of the Value collages that 5CV created! Good work 5CV!
Just to let you know that 5CV’s P.E. day is on a Wednesday this year where they will have a double P.E. lesson of two different sports. Please make sure your child has the correct kit with them each Wednesday. Please see below for what the Rosendale P.E. kit is, i.e. white Rosendale t-shirt, dark shorts or jogging bottoms and comfortable trainers.
We’ve had a great start to year five this week. We’ve spent the last three days getting to know our teams and new teacher, and discussing school rules, routines and values to help us prepare for the year ahead.
Today in class and in assembly we discussed our five school values that can be seen displayed in the reception area. These are Excite, Cooperate, Welcome, Challenge, Understand.
We talked about how these values are seen around school and in the wider world. We spent this afternoon working in our teams on our cooperation skills, designing collages to put up in our classroom that represent the school values. See some of our finished work in the picture above!
I am looking forward to meeting you all properly this Wednesday and getting to know each of you throughout the year. See you this Wednesday!
