‘Working together to fulfil potential’

Year 5

June 2017 :

 

On the mornings of Monday 26th June 2017 (Y5G) and Tuesday 27th June 2017 (Y5H), our classes have been invited into the BBC, at Media City for a CBBC workshop to say thank you for all their input over the school year with a project called ‘Stepping Out’. They will be playing some games and watching some brand new premiere content that has not yet aired on CBBC. It is a morning trip and should not alter lunchtime arrangements. The letters are attached in the documents area below and should be signed and returned as soon as possible.

Year 5G Lledr Hall Visit 

 

Thursday 25 May 2017
The children have had a fantastic final full day, completing their remaining activities. We've all had a great time but I'm sure they'll be looking forward to having a cuddle with you all tomorrow. They've been absolutely wonderful.

 

         

 

         

 

         

 

Wednesday 24 May 2017
The weather has continued to be fantastic and groups rotated activities as expected today. Mr Graham's group undertook the perilous Fisherman's walk this morning before visiting the River Avon Gorge in the afternoon. Mrs Butler's group spent a day hiking up Crimpiau hill just outside Capel Curig at 475m above sea level. Mrs Devney's group were on the high ropes and Jungle Gym this morning before canoeing this afternoon. The children slept really well last night and have been on great form!

 

         

 

         

 

         

 

Tuesday 23 May 2017
Today, the children separated into activity groups. Each group will rotate and complete the same activities across the week- depending on weather, of course! Mr Graham's group went on a Mountain Hike. Starting at Ogwen Valley, they climbed to Devil's Kitchen at 520m above sea level before stopping at the shore line of Llyn Idwal for some stone skimming and a paddle in the cool waters. It was the first time any of us had eaten our lunch from the Devil's Kitchen! Mrs Butler's group spent the morning on the High Ropes and Jungle Gym before undertaking a canoeing activity in the afternoon. Mrs Devney's group went gorge walking in the morning and undertook the Fisherman's Walk in the afternoon- a high rope activity suspended above the Lledr River- Mr Graham is really looking forward to that one (not!) As you can see, the weather continues to spoil us and the children having an absolute ball!

 

         

 

         

 

         

 

Monday 22 May 2017
I'm pleased to say that we arrived safely and that the weather has been very favourable. Some children were particularly well rested after the coach journey ! After lunch, our introductory activity 'Crack the Code' required children to use their map reading skills and a little bit of additional brain power to problem solve. The spirit was raised further by some team bonding games. Having had an opportunity to settle into their dorms, children then had their first 3 course meal- soup, assorted burgers and potato wedges followed by ice-cream complete with a real Cadbury's Flake. Even the pickiest of eaters (none more so than Mr Graham) had plenty to eat! After a short evening walk, we then had supper- millionaire's shortbread or chocolate chip cookies with juice or water. It's safe to say we've all been well fed. The children are now settling for the night and we're looking forward to recharging our batteries for a full on day tomorrow.

 

         

 

         

 

Lledr Departure

On Monday 22 May, Children from Year 5G will have access to the assembly hall from 08:30am onwards, through the main entrance of school. 

Mr Graham, Mrs Butler and Mrs Devney will be in the hall to receive children who have been asked to leave their belongings (suitcase/bag/sleeping bag) around the perimeter. After depositing their bags, children should proceed out of the hall and around the side of the building to line up as usual.

 

Medications:
Medications should be bagged and clearly labelled with your child's name and handed to an adult for safe keeping. The only exception to this is with blue asthma inhalers which children will keep on their person. Please remember to pack important medications for minor ailments such as antihistamines and travel sickness tablets. 

 

Spending Money:
Children should hand their spending money (max £10) to adults for safe keeping in a labelled envelope in the hall when leaving their bags.

 

Packed lunch:
All children will require a packed lunch for Monday. The packaging should be completely disposable. No plastic lunch boxes, please.

 

We look forward to a great week away with your children.

 

Year 5H Lledr Hall Visit 

Year 5H arrived safely at Lledr Hall early on Monday afternoon and settled into their home for the week with a real swagger.  They were warmly welcomed by the staff at the centre and took part in their first activity as part of an action packed week.  Dinner was a three course treat and all of the children enjoyed a 'relatively restful night'. Further updates will be added daily and thanks again for all of the support received from parents prior to the trip.

 

Yet another action packed day with two groups going down the mine and the other doing the low ropes, gorge walking and the high ropes. To cap it all, the rain stopped and the sun shone through in the afternoon. Stay posted for tomorrow's update.

 

Day Three at Lledr Hall...the fun continues with many more memories being created and also an abundance of challenges being met by our fabulous children.  We were also treated to a visit from our very own Mr. Moore in the evening.  What will the fourth day of our expedition hold? Bring it on!

 

Our penultimate day involved a birthday, copious amounts of sunshine, two groups who enjoyed a day on the mountain and the other getting nice and wet gorge walking.  What a perfect blend of activities prior to a DVD night to cap off a wonderful week.

 

All that is left is to sign off and to look forward to our journey home and being re-united with our families.

Viking Visit - Tue 02 May 2017

Year 5 kick-started their studies of Anglo-Saxon and Viking Britain with a visit from a real-life Viking!
Our visitor discussed all aspects of
family life and gave outstanding demonstrations on how the Vikings made fire and how they approached a battle. The children had a fantastic time and are now itching to immerse themselves in further learning. You can watch three short videos and few photos of our visitor in action, below.

 

          

 

 

April 2017:

Mr Graham and Mr Haygarth look forward to welcoming you to our Lledr Hall Parent's Meeting on Wednesday 19 April to discuss the upcoming residential for both classes in May. The meeting will begin at 6pm and it is for Parents / Carers only. Please bring along relevant medical notes including medication lists / doses that relate to your child. 

 

 

In addition to our Year 5 Maths Teaching Videos, each year group have started to create English teaching Videos to assist with aspects of grammar and writing initially. We will continue to add to these pages over time. The Year 5 page can be accessed via the link below:

March 2017:

Both Year 5 classes are enjoying a half term of football coaching on a Thursday morning with Manchester United coaches.  Their first week went really well with a session on Control.  All children are relishing the opportunity to improve their football skills and eagerly await their next training opportunity!

     

 

February 2017:

Mr Graham and Mr Haygarth look forward to welcoming you to Parent's Evening on Monday 13 February for the opportunity to discuss your child's progress. If you have not yet received an appointment, please contact the school office to arrange one at your nearest convenience. 

 

January 2017:

Welcome back and a happy New Year to you all. We hope you are sticking to those resolutions! The spring term is now in full swing and our Learning Question for the term is a science based one – it is...

 

Could you be the next CSI investigator?

 

To kick start the topic we will have a CSI Day on Monday 16th January, 2017 whereby the children will answer the Learning Challenge - How could you solve a crime by using forensic science? 

 

      

 

With regard to class assemblies, the two Year 5 assemblies are some of the first in the calendar and are listed below.

 

Y5G – Friday 20th January, 2017

Y5H – Friday 3rd February, 2017

 

We hope you are able to attend.

December 2016:

December, as always, will prove to be a magical month for the children. Our Christmas party is on Monday December 19th, 2016 and before then we will be watching the nativity and also singing carols as a group at St Mary’s on December 15th, 2016 – always a really good way of feeling festive and getting into the Christmas spirit. All of this of course, while still doing maths and English on a daily basis! All of the very best to you and your families.

 

November 2016:

Thank you for the wonderful support both at our Maths Curriculum evening and for your many kind words following our recent inspection.

 

Children are more than half way through their geography learning and the Y5H class assembly this month will feature much of their learning. 
 

We have two cross country races this month. Race 1 of the Salford Schools Cross Country takes place on Saturday 05 November at Bolton Road / Duchy Road Playing fields while Race 2 will be on Saturday 26 November at Buile Hill. Training will continue to take place on Wednesdays at 3pm.

 

Looking ahead to December, the Year 5G and Year 5H Christmas parties will be held on Monday 19 December.

 

October 2016:
We are delighted that 28 Year Five children (19 girls and 9 boys) represented James Brindley at the recent Salford METS XC Series. Thank you to the children and their families for supporting us. Thank you also to the families who were able to attend the recent Year 5G class assembly. 

          

 

We're now well into our new learning on lifecycles and reproduction in plants. You can watch group videos on pollination by scrolling further down the page. 

 

          

 

Parents Evening is on Monday 17 October 2016 for Year 5G. Mr Graham is looking forward to meeting with you to discuss your child's progress and how they have settled into Year 5. Parents Evening for Year 5H will take place at a later date.

September 2016:

Welcome back! We hope you've all had a very peaceful and relaxing summer and that your children are excited about coming back to school. The Year 5 team spent some time with their respective classes in July getting to know the children and outlining the expectations of the Year 5 curriculum. We are now really looking forward to getting started with our new classes. 

 

To kickstart our geography topic, both classes will be visiting Worsley Woods to meet with Salford Forest Ranger, Joe Palframan. During their visits, children will work in teams to build their very own rainforest survival shelter- Bear Grylls style.
Dates:

Year 5G - Monday 12 September 2016
Year 5H - Tuesday 13 September 2016

 

For each visit, we require a signed permission slip (to be returned by Friday 09 September) to allow your child to attend and would be glad of a number adult helpers. Full details are on the letter that your child will receive on their first day back at school- a copy is also available below in the event of a letter being misplaced. Children may come to school in their own clothes, suitable for the shelter building activity, but must bring their uniform and school shoes to change into upon returning to school. We look forward to welcoming our parent helpers who will be joining us and thank them kindly for their time. We will leave school promptly after registration.
UPDATE: Please note that following overnight rain on Friday, there was a little bit of mud on many of the paths just off the main loopline. Sensible shoes will therefore be imperative.

 

          

Finally, our 'Autumn Term Curriculum Newsletter' is available to download by scrolling just below this entry past the link to the Year 5 Mathematics Teaching Videos. Also available are the'Year 5 End of Year Expectations', 'Homework Timetable' and 'Year 5 Spelling Wordlists' documents.
