Media Week

Next week will be our second Rosendale Media Week. The theme this year is “Bringing stories to life”, and the children will be creating articles for the school magazine and multimedia content themed around the books in Rosendale Book Club.

We will be looking at how stories are brought to life using different media, such as animation, film and digital art.
We also have some very exciting visitors coming to school from one of the most famous story tellers.
You can follow the action on twitter by searching for #rosendalemediaweek17
The school magazine, Rosendale Voice, will be out at the end of the summer term. It will be jam packed with lots of fabulous writing and art, as well as links to all the multimedia content we make next week.

Resources Needed

The next school wide art project will be weaving! Since year five is working on climate change, we thought it would be a good idea to recycle some old plastic bags and use them in our weaving project. If you have any colourful plastic bags lying around, can you please bring them in to help us with our project!

Also, if there is any more readathon money to come in, please send it to the office!

Thanks

Weekly Roundup

Another busy week in year five!

In maths this week, we have continued our work with angles and using protractors.

In English, we have been working on a wonderful narrative poem called The Highwayman. We dissected the language of the poem as it was written a very long time ago so we could understand what was happening. We answered questions on the poem and thought about all of the different characters and what they may have been feeling. We finished the week off by retelling the story from the perspective of one of the characters in the story.

In project, we continued our work with climate change. We looked at ways we can solve climate change now, in the near future and what could possibly be science fiction.

Have a great weekend everyone!

Letters

The year five team are very excited to announce that on Monday June 12, we will be going to Hillingdon Outdoor Activity Centre.

All the information is in the letter, but if you do have additional questions, please do let me know.

Year five also has the opportunity to participate in cycle training. Every week, 8 students will spend 1.5 hours a day getting some cycle training. If your child is not participating next week, the training will continue until everyone who has asked to participate has completed the training.

Welcome Back

Welcome to the summer term! Only one more term in year five.

To start our summer term, we have started our new maths topic of geometry. We have focused on angles this week. We had a little review about the different types of angles and learned how to use a protractor to help us find different angles. We finished the week off with learning how to find angles along a straight line that equals 180 degrees.

In English, we have been working on a Haikus, an ancient Japanese poem that only has three lines.  We will finish our work on this on Monday.

In project, we have continued our work with climate change. This week we discussed the greenhouse gas effect and the consequences of climate change. A lot of great discussion and questions have come out of this topic!

Have a great weekend everyone! 🙂
