Term 3- Courage
JC5 have made an excellent start to the term by completing their RE week entitled; 'How does faith help people when times are hard?' We have considered what is meant by faith and how it can give you courage even when all may seem lost.
In Maths, we are completing our multiplication and division topic and paying extra attention to multiplying up to 4 digits by 2 digits.
In English, we will be exploring the new topic 'space' through an excellent text!
Let's get political!
JC5 spent the afternoon creating political manifestos in preparation for the upcoming election. We discussed the right to vote, who can vote and why it is important to have your voice heard.
After some excellent (and memorable) speeches, our secret ballot revealed Sammy would be prime minister for the class. His charismatic performance to encourage a plastic-free future won over the class.
Congratulations to all involved... perhaps some of you will be taking on Question Time in the near future!
Term 2- Compassion
They will neither hunger nor thirst, nor will the desert heat or the sun beat down on them. He who has compassion on them will guide them and lead them beside springs of water.
Welcome to term 2!
JC5 have been considering our new value 'compassion' as part of RE week. The children looked at 'the big frieze' and shared bible stories to support thoughts about God being loving and holy. We were fortunate enough to visit the church and enjoyed an excellent opportunity to experience the architecture and meaning behind places of worship.
We are making good progress in Mathematics and have been looking at number relationships to help our factor and multiple knowledge. Division and multiplication practise on daily 10 and mathletics will really improve fluency!
Challenge question..... Do bigger numbers have more factors? Prove your answer.
In History and English we are uncovering spectacular land of ancient Egypt. We will be creating an information text in English and discovering Tutankhamun's tomb.
Fun fact! Tutankhamun became pharoh at just 9 years old!
A huge congratulations to all of JC5 for all your hard work in the Harvest Worship.
Thank you for your thoughtful harvest donations.
Welcome to JC5!
A new year, a new teacher, a new start!
Miss Sim hopes you all had a fantastic Summer filled with fun, sun and rest! Your classroom is ready and waiting for your exciting work to cover the walls.
Our topic for terms 1 and 2 is Egypt. Any artefacts, books or photographs would be greatly appreciated for our display.
A gentle reminder that children should be reading age appropriate texts at home at least four times a week to an adult or independently. Parents should initial all reading activities in Homework diaries. Remember, four reads a week= one house point!
Please remember to bring your PE kit every Monday.
We have swimming every Wednesday.
