Welcome to the home of Year 5M!
Mrs Hindmarch and I can't wait to get started on our Year 5 adventure. We will be working hard but also having lots of fun and a few silly moments along the way the no doubt. We look forward to sharing this time with your children. Please check this page regularly to see photos and examples of some of the fantastic work and activities pupils have completed in class. We look forward to working with your children this year!
Mr Murtagh and Mrs Hindmarch
Usually, we would be visiting Kingmeadow School around this time of year and taking part in a taster day. Unfortunately, we are not able to visit this year so they have kindly created a range of resources and challenge for you to complete!
You will be able to complete the challenges by following this link:
THE GHOSTLY GALLEON
I remember the date. It was 5th December 1782. I had noticed a ship before me in my telescope. It looked like a Ghostly Galleon. Surrounded by the mist, the Ghostly Galleon, swept through the black inky waves. One minute you will saw her, the next minute she was gone…
I cleaned the lense of my telescope. Suddenly, I noticed she was beside me… Despite my fear. I ordered the crew to adventure closer.
As I stepped onto the deck of the ship, a sudden shiver went down my spine. Glaring up, I saw ragged sails slapping. However... there was no wind!
The Marie Celeste
Beneath the icy moon, that was slowly crawling across the horizon, my small boat was covered by a huge shadow of a ship. Both of the crewmen, who rowed us slowly onwards, looked up in shock. When we had left the Dei Gratia, the moon had lit our way, but now, as we had crept closer to the derelict ship, the weather had changed: a cold chill was in the air. Perhaps it was my imagination, but the sea itself seemed to change from a crystal blue to a deadly grey. The waves seemed to crash more forcefully against our boat as we approached as if the sea was warning us away…
The font of knowledge that is Dean Brown and the wonderful Lexy Hullock are Yr5M's pupils of the week.
Dean has been using spine tingling vocabulary in his spooky settings this week and Lexy has just been the most amazing Year 5 role model since we started back. Well done you two!
This week we identified and ordered the planets in our Solar System. We looked at how they orbit the sun and how long each planet takes to do this. The children then became experts on a chosen planet and presented its characteristics on our whole class model. A few astronauts in the waiting!
