'Inspiring Learning Together'

White Rock Primary School

WELCOME TO YEAR 5 MAGPIES

Magpies are known for their intelligence. We are also resourceful and curious and being part of the upper years team, we are able to gather knowledge and apply this to our daily learning. 

 

THIS TERMS THEME

'The Same But different ...'

 In our learning this term, we will be celebrating the differences within communities around the world. We will be delving into different religions, cultures, beliefs and celebrating the diversity found in us all. We invite parents and carers to attend our learning celebration on Thursday 28th November at 2.30 pm.  

 

P.E AND DANCE DAYS

PE for Magpies will be on Friday mornings and Dance will be on Wednesday mornings. Please ensure your child comes to school with the correct kit, which is clearly labelled. For more information about kit requirements, please visit our 'Physical Education & School Sport' page.

We will ensure that PE kits are sent home at the end of every half term.

 

HOME LEARNING DAYS

Home learning will be sent home on Fridays and should be returned to school on Wednesday. Home learning should be completed to the best standard possible and Mathletics and Times Table Rock Stars should also be completed weekly. We celebrate the efforts of Mathletics and Times Table Rock Stars in our assemblies with special class shout outs and certificates.

Science - Classifying Materials - Friday 6th September 2019

 

In today's science lessons we looked at a range of materials and discussed their similarities and differences. We then had a go at classifying them into Venn and Carroll diagrams by either writing or drawing the materials in them. We looked at a range of key vocabulary that we could classify them under:

- Transparency

- Absorbency

- Hardness

- Flexibility
