Year 5

Book reviews

Year 5 enjoyed sharing their book reviews with their classes on Monday. It was wonderful to hear about the reading they had all been doing over the Easter holidays!

The children were able to discover new books and genres they hadn’t read before and lots of them (and us!) have a long list of books they would now like to read!

Celebration Assembly

The children in in year 5 have been working hard this week after their Easter break. They have dissected flowers, written stories, learnt to use protractors, painted outside and Birch have been swimming!

This week we have celebrated role model behaviour from:

Caitlin: For working hard with her story writing.

Adam: For setting a good example with his behaviour.

Ally: For persevering with swimming

Kaci : For working well in maths and pushing herself

 

Our timetables rock stars this week were Brooke and Jaxon.

 

Well done to all of year 5 for the hard work! Keep it up!

Year 5 Easter Homework

We would like you to write a book review about a book you have read either over Easter, or one you have read recently. You have to have really liked your book, as we want your review to persuade others to read it.

We will be sharing these in class on Friday April 20th. If you could, please bring the book into school on this day to share with your classmates.

The children were given a template they can use to help them with their review.

We can’t wait to read them.

All the best,

Miss Elliott and Miss Cseri.

Road Safety!

A morning of being police officers...

We have had a very exciting morning in Year 5 today!

 

We were lucky enough to have been able to work with Will (St Thomas’ PCSO) and Matt (Student PC), they took all of the year 5 pupils out doing a speed operation which focused on encouraging awareness in our local area.

They all had the chance to use the ‘speed guns’ to see who was speeding, whilst another group of children were with Matt asking the drivers questions.

Over the course of the morning, we stopped about 25 cars. The fastest car was doing 38mph, which was well over the 20mph speed limit. All of year 5 were really excited throughout the whole operation and did a great job!

We want to thank them all for behaving so amazingly and being a credit to Montgomery Primary School…so WELL DONE year 5! You should all be very proud of yourselves.

Also a MASSIVE thank you to Will and Matt, they both did an incredible job and went above and beyond to ensure all children were given the chance to have a go at everything. I am certain this was an experience the children will remember for a very long time and it has taught them so much!
