- About Us
This week we are learning to spell words ending -cial. We have learned that these words usually have a vowel before the suffix, BUT, not always! Look for words that don't fit the rule while learning your spellings this week and look out for other words ending in -cial. Do they follow the rule?
This week our spelling words in Year 5 all end in -cious. There are tasks for the children to complete on Spelling Shed and we expect them to practice these words at home.
In History today the children in Year 5 used a range of different sources to find out all about Alexander the Great. They learned about who he was, what he achieved and what made him so great.
This week our spellings in Year 5 all end with the letter string -ious. Some of the words end with a shuss sound, others with an eeus sound.
The children have tasks relating to these spellings on Spelling Shed. www.spellingshed.com
Teachers will be checking next week to see which children have been logging on to practice.
The children have been given reminders of their login details today but if they forget or have trouble logging on then please email us at firstname.lastname@example.org
It has been a pleasure to welcome the children back to school and into 5MB. We have had a lovely two days and it has been fantastic to hear about everything the children have been up to. We have also been busy getting straight into some excellent learning. We read the book The Flower by John Light. We picked out some challenging vocabulary, found out the definitions and added them onto our Vocabulary Wall.
We also spent some time thinking about how our main character, Brigg, feels at different parts of the story and then we have written a diary entry from his point of view.
This afternoon we had the chance to explore our new reading area. We have hundreds of new books that we will be able to read during the year and we can't wait to get started on them!
