Meet The Teachers

Hi Everyone,

Welcome back to school.   I hope you all had a lovely break and are full of enthusiasm for the next few weeks.  The work that you produced on the Titanic was wonderful, you should be very proud of yourselves and maybe it will inspire some of you to get more involved in this weeks work. Also I was really pleased to see that some of you who have found fractions challenging in the past have really cracked them this time.

This week we welcome Mrs Wallace back to Year 5 as she returns from  Maternity Leave. She is going to be helping me with your learning,  I know several of you have challenged me on Rock Stars but starting this week I would like you to challenge her as well.  She was always very good at maths but I think several of you could set her a very high target!!!!

Not many of you seem to be using My Maths but this week I have put some work on going over the fraction work you will have done in Year 4 so if you find White Rose tricky this week have a go at that.

I have put a link on for a song about Martin Luther King, as well as listening to it, read the words as well, it is very inspiring.

Finally there is a  link to a geography lesson about trade and economic activity from BBC Bitesize which some of you will find interesting, it asks you to make a meal at the end!

Don’t forget the information and activities from the Rivers Trust at the bottom of our class web page and the video of the fish release.

Have a good week and I look forward to  being wowed again by your fantastic capabilities.

Take care and  be safe!

Mrs Long

Rivers and Lifecycles

This term in Year Five we have some new class mates – 100 to be precise! We have taken delivery of 100 trout eggs and will be nurturing them and watching them grow until they are able to be released into the River Calder at Townley Park in Spring. These new additions to our class are part of our topic about Rivers and Lifecycles and we hope to integrate this subject into our art work this term with some river bank inspired textile work. In Literacy we are reading and then writing our own science fiction stories and in maths we will be tackling word problems, graphs and fractions. WE are also looking forward to Play in a Day later in the term.

Trout Release

Sadley we weren’t able to see our trout being released into the River Calder at Towneley Park but Neil have posted their release on You Tube.  Follow this link and see if you can spot your favourite trout leaving the bucket!!!!

Ribbles River Trust have sent me this information about Rivers and Climate change – some of you might like to look at it , CLICK on the icon below if you do!  Mrs Long

Neil has send me this homelearning pack about rivers.  It looks really interesting, especially if its a rainy afternoon.  I found the section about the 3 Ps (week 2) particularly illuminating!!!   Mrs L
