Doods

 

‘Year 5 have been using the Numicon to help them understand decimals’ 

  

Year Five are having full class music lessons today with some instruments called 'Doods' which are beginner clarinets.   The teacher, Mrs. Hart, taught us how to hold and blow them properly this week and, with her help, most of us managed to play the note B.  We're looking forward to next week when we will learn more about music notation and how to play the note A.

   

St Thérèse of Lisieux

We looked at St Thérèse of Lisieux in one of our class acts of worship and the two girls put together a lovely focus area Thant helped us to think about St Thérèse.

  

The Golden Mile

  

Stargazers

Year five’s topic for this term is Stargazers. To start us off with this, we visited Cleethorpes Observatoy which is a short walk away from school. We were given a talk about the night sky and had a look at the different telescopes. Some of the children were even allowed to turn the handle that makes the roof rotate. It was a great introduction to the topic.

Autumn 2016

At St Josephs we have implemented a new approach to learning spellings. In year 5 we have been enjoying our spelling sessions and the results of our weekly spelling tests are reflecting the success of these sessions. In the photographs the children were working together to put our weekly words in order of which words they found easiest or hardest to spell and we discuss the outcomes and reasons as a class.

"I love the spellings it is a great way of children wanting to learn spellings and it is fun." Annie

"I think that the new spelling sessions will improve my spellings and make all of us more intelligent and it's very fun." Stephen
