5JM 2018 - 2019
Welcome to 5JM's class page!
Hello, I'm Mrs Maddox and this year will be my fourth here at Offley. I thoroughly enjoy teaching in Year 5 and this year I will also be co-leading mathematics with Mrs Furlong.
I have lived in Cheshire for over three years now and love exploring new places within the local area. In my spare time I enjoy baking, reading, exercising, going for long walks and to music concerts and spending time with my friends and family.
PE days are Thursday (indoor) and Friday (outdoor)
Times table tests are on Thursday
Spelling tests are on Friday
Homework will be from the choices sheet, in addition to Maths and English when given out.
Week ending: 18.01.19
In English this week we have boxed up and identified the features of our Talk for Writing report, written direct and reported speech based on the alien invasions clip and wrote an opening paragraph for our innovation report using the 5Ws - who, what, where, when and why. This is in preparation for writing our report next week.
We have started our work on fractions this week and began by securing our understanding on dividing to make fractions first e.g. 1 divided by 3 = 1/3. We then moved on to converting improper fractions to mixed numbers and vice versa and then created equivalent fractions using a range of equipment, including cuisinere rods.
In our topic work we developed our understanding of why the Vikings invaded and came to English and reasoned whether they were raiders or settlers.
In science this week we learnt about the different planets in our Solar System and their distances away from the Sun. We then used inflatable planets to create this heliocentric model outside on the playground, the children had great fun and really enjoyed this.
We are learning Samba drumming with Mr Proctor this term and will be getting into the carnival spirit! Our drummer of the week was Holly McBride - well done!
