PICTURES AND VIDEOS OF OUR LEARNING
In Term 2 the children were asked to complete a small project on the Second World War focusing on a topic of their choice. I was completely blown away by the standard of the projects and it was clear the children had put a lot of time and effort into their homework. The projects covered a range of topics including the Bristol Blitz, the untold story of Caribbean soldiers in WW2, women at war, espionage, and life for children and families during the war. Not only were they a pleasure to read but I learned a lot from reading them too. Well done Class Five for your excellent work! Below are a selection of some of the fantastic projects.
On a cold (and at times very wet!) day in November we visited Arnos Vale Cemetery to add to our ever-growing knowledge of the First and Second World War. We spent the day finding out about people who had died and fought in the war and who are buried and remembered at the cemetery. The class loved hearing the stories of men and women, many of whom were not from Bristol but from countries around the world, who had helped with the war effort in some way. Despite the weather, it was a fantastic and informative day out.
Christmas came early to Class Five last week when we went to a talk by children's author Matt Haig all about his Christmas novels, The Girl Who Saved Christmas and A Boy Called Christmas. We learned funny words that were popular in the Victorian era, just how to evoke the Christmas spirit and what exactly is the rudest thing is you could say to an elf! The children were also lucky enough to have a chance to get their books signed by Matt Haig.

Homework and Spellings
Homework and the week's spellings are set every Friday. The homework is due back the following Thursday and the spellings are tested every Friday.
Information about the week's homework and the new spellings will be put on the website each Friday.
Friday 30th June
Your homework this week is continuing on with the work we've been doing on multiplying fractions. Please try and simplify the fractions and write them in their simplest form (e.g. 2/10 = 1/5).
I know that Amy from Bristol Rugby has also set you a PE homework task so please could you also try and complete this.
As we've finished learning new spellings for the year, over the next few weeks we'll be looking again at spelling patterns (ence/ ible/ able) and words from the NC Year 5/6 Spelling List which we've already learned. We'll be going over them in class so you don't need to practise them at home as we won't be testing them. However, you can spend time looking through the words on the NC list to help you if you'd like.
Hope you all have a lovely weekend.
