A Look at Y5 by the Web Warriors


This term in year five the main topic is currently animation. They have to make a two frame transport out of one piece of paper to try and draw a type of transport such as bikes, scooters, skateboard, walking and any other transports they can think off.(they will have also outlined it in a black biro pen so once they have folded the paper you can see the second drawing through the paper) So once they have drawn the type of transport it will look like their transport is moving.

Some off the transports they have decided to draw are: a dog, a scooter, a skateboard, a dinosaur, a cat, heelys, walking a dog, a bike and a rocket. The animator will continue to come in once a week, for the next thirteen weeks.


Spellings - This year, we use Nessy for spellings. Nessy provides the children with the chance to understand the formation of words. The children have been placed in to Nessy groups, based on an assesment. In these groups, the children are taught the rule for the spellings. The children then have work based on this rule and are then given spellings to learn over the next week. Nessy tests are every Monday morning.
