It's coding time in Class V, and SCRATCH is proving popular with many class members. Here is a link to the SCRATCH website, where you can make an account and either use SCRATCH online or download a version to your computer.
Try making a simple game, then, try upgrading it with sounds, new levels and anything else you like!
Make animations, stories, music, simulations, what ever you want to.
Thursday 1st March
As you can see, we tried hard to open school today, the roads around school were pretty treacherous, so before we gave up and went home, some fun was had by the staff on the field...!
Enjoy the snow and have fun, but please stay safe and keep warm too. I'm topping up Mathletics for you to keep your brains from turning to slush like the snow will soon, and well done to those of you who have sent in your thoughts about the poems, I've published them below - keep 'em coming! I've added some French videos below too so you can sing along to French numbers to 50 and learn the months and days of the week if you don't know them already. Don't forget there are maths puzzles and logic puzzles further down our page as well if you get bored!
See you all next week,
Mrs H. xx
Aaliya wrote a Young Writer's review of Awful Auntie at the Orchard Theatre which has been published online! Have a look - https://orchardtheatre.co.uk/Online/YoungWriters?menu_id=7F8C6166-A70B-480F-82F3-6D0A7AE0FE4C
Congratulations Aaliya on a super piece of writing!
Bonjour - time to learn some French!
See if you can use the resources below to improve your French vocabulary.
Science Day Challenge 6.2.18.
Here is everyone having fun building a tower to support a triangular based pyramid - well done to Emily, Aimee and Oliver N for getting their shape 55cm off the ground!
Just wanted to say a HUGE THANK YOU to everyone in Class V, and of course, particularly mums and dads for the wonderful selection of cards and gorgeous prezzies I received at the end of term. It was really kind and very much appreciated! The Bluewater voucher was a wonderful surprise and I have to say I have enjoyed every second of splurging on some new clothes in my favourite shops in the sales - here are the bags to prove it!
I trust you all had an excellent time over Christmas and look forward to seeing you all in 2018 for the new term.
Thank you again,
Mrs H. xxx
More Logic Games
What's Inside the Box?
Follow a logical set of rules to solve each puzzle.
Use your mouse to interact with the puzzle and test your ideas.
Split a block of wood into a given number of pieces. NOT EQUAL pieces,
just any size pieces! Sounds too easy, right? Yes, but there's a catch.
Class V Cups 1.12.17.
Well done to James for getting the work cup this week - quick work in all subjects.

Keep it up Class V!

Thank you to all parents who helped the children prepare to share all kinds of fascinating facts, costumes and food!

I'm sure you'll want to enjoy some memories of our day so here are some photos to give you that international flavour we created!

The cups went to

Well done all 3 of you - keep it up!

Class V's Favourite Books
"The Wishing Spell" by Chris Colfer - This is a really good book. It is full of fairy tales that everyone knows and it completes the mysteries of the tales.
"Running Wild" by Michael Morpurgo - This book is really good for people who love nature.
"The Star of Kazan" by Eva Ibbotson - It is full of mystery and I enjoyed every moment.
"Harry Potter" (the whole series) by J K Rowling
"The Midnight Gang" by David Walliams - It's a really exciting and fun story and it's funny. It's really imaginative!
"Goosebumps" the series by R L Steine - It makes you hair stand on end!
"Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire" by J K Rowling - It's a really exciting story. I like Ron because he is funny.
"Wonder" by R J Palacio
"Gangsta Granny" by David Walliams - because it's hilarious!
"The Roundhill" by Dick King Smith
"Great Expectations" by Charles Dickens - because of his very good vocabulary, it's written very well, creates a good picture in your mind and it is intriguing!
"Oliver Twist" by Charles Dickens
"Matilda" by Roald Dahl
We are reading 'The Railway Children' this term. Reading chapter 2 is for homework this weekend - don't forget! ;-)

Welcome to Class V's page for 2017 - 18
I hope you've all had a wonderful summer break and are ready for what is bound to be a busy year!
We have our Class V Parents Information Meeting scheduled for Tuesday 5th September at 3pm, so I'm looking forward to meeting you, the parents of my new class. Many of you I know already of course as I have already taught a number of siblings of this year's Class V. I hope the information will be helpful and there will be a chance to ask questions as well. I've added the timetable and this term's curriculum overview below for you as Word documents - feel free to print and put them on the fridge!
I hope you had a great summer break. Let's hope the weather stays summery for as long as possible... see you all soon! :-)
Here's to an educational, productive, creative and fun year!
