Swimming gala, maths investigations and publishing articles

Published Monday, October 14, 2013.
Last updated: Wednesday, October 16, 2013

Maths H/L tonight,

don't cry....sorry but NO  Literacy or Connected Learning H/L this week.

AND Please don't come to school on Thursday ;)


I was so proud of you at our swimming gala,

We came a very respectable 4th and had a lot of fun.

swimming gala on PhotoPeach
You were dedicated, enthusiastic and supported one another.
You remembered it was the taking part that mattered and all of you wanted to help out in races when there were missing persons.
I loved your principled and open-minded attitudes.
I am chuffed to bits with you all.
You are all winners.


Message from Miss Battram;
DONOT TAKE FOOTBALLS from outside the canteen when Year 6 are eating, they are theirs!
Phases of the moon
Let us learn with oreos!

I’ve always been a fan of science activities that you can eat. It’s almost as if Oreo cookies were made for phases of the moon lessons, and it’s a great way to see how well you can match a moon phase name with a moon phase appearance.

You will need:

  • An Oreo cookie for each student
  • A piece of paper with a moon phase written on it for each student (I will omit “Full moon” – that’s just too easy)
  • A popsicle stick or other tool for scraping the frosting (tongues?)

What to do:

  1. I will demonstrate the proper way to slowly twist an Oreo to maximize the amount of frosting on one side when you separate the halves, (practice yourself, it can be tricky)
  2. Give each student a cookie and have them twist the halves open. Hopefully most will the frosting will be on one side or the other. They can always transfer frosting if needed.
  3. Have the student retrieve their moon phases while you hand out the craft sticks.
  4. Recreate the given phase in frosting!

We will take photos!

See more at:

Can You have fun, learn and deepen your understanding all at the same time?

AND eat oreos?

We will investigate our mentos questions:
1) Does the amount of coke affect the height of fizz?
IV= big coke , little coke
CV=same type of drink, same amount of mentos, same type of mentos
2) Does the type of fizzy drink affect height of fizz?
IV= mountain dew, pepsi max, coke, coke zero, fanta
CV= same amount of drinks, same type and amount of mentos
3) Does the type of sweet affect the height of fizz?
IV= mint mentos, fruit mentos, rainbow mentos, fishermans friend
CV= Same amount of coke, same drink
4) Does sucking mentos affect the height of fizz?
IV=  don't suck, suck for 30 secs, suck for 1 minute, suck for 1.5 minutes
CV= Same amount of coke, same type of coke.
Next we will predict and justify, and on Wednesday we shall carry out our investigation!

We will test YOUR investigations tomorrow! 

On reflection we have learnt that 4 people are needed!

1 to hold 2 metre rulers

1 to hold the bottle

1 to pull the geyser

1 to record the results


We shared our learning with Year 3

They were impressed and were curious

we were knowledgeable and explained our learning to them

it was good to communicate

we showed them models

we played top trumps

we explained night and day, seasons and phases of the moon

they liked our booklets

Even the teachers were impressed

You were organised and principled

You were awesome communicators


Have you printed yours?  


We tasted astronaut ice cream

Some of us liked it

it was a little like warm airless ice cream

Why wasn't it a liquid?

It is tweeted and we saved some for

Aiden and Sam :)

Don't come to school tomorrow!

Data handling, Mentos explosions and Basketball journalism

Published Monday, October 07, 2013.
Last updated: Thursday, October 10, 2013


Monday - Maths Groups Pictogram or bar chart of tiger money data.

Tuesday - Literacy 

Iron man and powerful verbs (great practice for your basketball articles! ) WE LOVE ACTION !

This is differentiated so there are two tasks to chose from.

Copy the text with the more powerful verbs included, think about the tense and your gorgeous handwriting. CHoose the appropriate fit for you.

EXT: Write a review or comment on themes in the book for example; colour and repetition, good versus evil, friend versus enemies, on a yellow stickie and add to the Iron man Display.

Be interactive, be an active learner!

Wednesday Is your MATRIX ready for the EXPO to Year 3? Is there anything you would like to refine? Reflect and change your learning if needed.


Enjoy this Maths people!

With the swimming galas fast approaching we will be sending out staffing etc early next week.

We would like the students to have a try at designing the Front Cover of their Year Group Gala Programme! All of the information that they might need is below.

Monday 14th

October 2013

@ the 50m Pool

Year 5

7.50am to 9.50am

All entries to be delivered to the Primary PE Office in the Sports Hall by Thursday morning. I would suggest A5 or A4 but remember they will be shrunk and Black and White as they will be photocopied. Smoothie Prizes! Computer generated or hand Drawn….

Thank you!

Mr Andrew Tatam

Watch this from is cool!

Did you achieve the target last week?

What is our class target this week?

Maths, today we investigated handling data and how it can be presented

We found out you had to label the Y axis (frequency, numbers evenly spaced)

The X axis is the categories.

You need to be accurate, and label and title the graph

Can you make statements?

The most popular....


Why is this funny?

Classes for Thursday and Friday due to choral festival.

  • 5G – Lauren Barnes, Adam Buckingham, Nicholas Changbencharoen, Emily Chaplin


  • 5T – Anthony Di Mauro, Daniel Fuchs, Krishay Shah


  • 5B – Hari Pillai, Sophie Smith,Vyom Pavsiya

Can I explain why rockets blast off and keep moving?


Gravity pulls EVERYTHING to the centre of the earth.
Rockets push up. They need a lot of fuel to do this.
We call it upthrust force, it has to be MORE powerful than the pulling down force (gravity)
Most of Apollo 11 is fuel, liquid fuel. It needs a lot of energy to burst through Earth's atmosphere.
Why doesn't the rocket require so much fuel to get back to earth?
We are going to investigate MENTOS and COKE.
You will see upwards thrust!
Can you describe this physical reaction?
we had a trial

We studied the apparatus, how does it work?

A pin, a hole, screw and loading bay

We predicted

We discussed Hector and Noah's bath bubbles, a hose and rockets

How will we measure?

What can we investigate?

Will different amounts or sweets or drinks make a difference to the height?





Molly and Nicolas our new LIBRARY REPS!

You are responsible, principled and great communicators!

Most of all you love our library and all the books in the world!

Assess your understanding here:
If you need practice:
You'll need a calculator for this one!

We arrived at the Choral festival and were given langards with secret codes on

We received song books and were enthusiastic

We met Reka who can sing beautifully

We practiced

Did some sculpture and barn dancing

And ate a lot of nice snacks

Come to our concert on Saturday

@ Emily,

We all missed you lot too! I really missed you all but you would be so so proud of 5M.

It is tough work the choir! They sang pretty much all day with just a few extra activities, I thought it would be easy but NO!

Great fun but hard work concentrating!

Monday: Maths groups,
There are activities on here to support your length learning
Tuesday: Literacy- Headlines
Wednesday LAST matrix, have you got 60 stars?
Are you ready to present?
The aquathlon was brilliant!
I saw superb examples of determination, enthusiasm and supporting one another.
You have spirit and perseverence 5M.
I am proud of you!

After visiting the Khao Yai residential location and planned activities, I am confident you are going to have an awesome trip. It is a day longer than Kanchanaburi and you are a year more mature!
There are lots of fun challenges ahead but don't worry there isn't a leech in sight come January!
You'll find out how to conserve rainforests, you'll find out about erosion and waterfalls, you'll discover animals on the night safari and scientifically study the river; it's flow, depth and cross section.
I am!
THANK YOU Student Councillors,
You are working hard to improve our learning environment. We adore the way you greet us in the morning with the two members of staff. We like the commitment you are showing to your role, and your feedback on the learning walks was helpful.
Here are your new ways of sharing the play spaces in school.

Y5 and Y6 have come up with a fairer way to share their play spaces.


  • At 12.45 ALL students (Year 5 and 6) are allowed on the basketball courts and should share the space fairly.  
  • Half of the blue tennis courts (the half nearest the 25m pool) will be assigned to Year 6 and the other half to Year 5s.  
  • The field is available to everyone.  

The new ‘rules’ will be effective from Monday 30th and will be a trial, reviewed after a couple of weeks.



My maths group, you found it tricky converting km into m

Be an active learner and have some practice. You were OK at decimal conversion but the fractions was more challenging for you.



Please Don't forget your YELLOW/GOLD t-shirts for the basketball on Thursday
Here are some positive sporting tips you can follow:
  • - If you make a mistake don’t make excuses learn from it and, be ready to play REFLECT
  • - If a teammate makes a mistake make sure to encourage, don’t criticise them PRINCIPLED

How do you rate your Sporting attitude?

Sportsmanship is the ability to...

- Win without bragging

- Lose without complaining - or making excuses

- Treat opponents and referees with respect


Do You...

- Always follow the rules of the game?

- Avoid arguments?

- Share in the responsibilities of the team?

- Let everyone play by the rules of the game?

- Always play fair?

- Follow what the coach / teacher says?

- Respect the other teams' efforts?

- Give encouragement to your teammates?

- Follow the judgment of the referee?

- End the game smoothly?

Maths Links for those of you who wish to build a shed :)
Can you do it?
Take a risk and have a go!

WOW! Special Home Learning by 5M, real determination and committment!

A timeline and communication satillite rolled into one

VERY persuasive! QUALITY LEARNING! I would like to go!

The presentation makes it out of THIS world

Top Trumps!

We use our learning to have fun!

What is the best card to have? Why?

Headlines, pun, alliteration and shock are tactics used to grab the reader's attention.

We learned about ambiguity today.

Ambiguous Newspaper Headlines

Newspaper headlines need to be as short as possible, so whilst they obey grammatical rules, they tend to omit little, unimportant words like the and is.

But are these words unimportant?

The result of leaving them out can result in highly ambiguous sentences, which are often quite amusing.

These are real newspaper headlines:



Why are these REAL headlines funny?


A fifteen year old Corydon boy has been suspended by his head since last September because of his long hair.

(Times Educational Supplement)


Dog For Sale: Eats anything, fond of children (small ad)


School Drop-outs cut in half










We loved being in the shared area and looking at the interactive displays.

Who had a go at the newspaper one? The Unsolved Questions? Who admired another class's learning?

Were you respectful and appreciative? Were you curious and enthusiastic?

MATHS  Block C1: Measures

We are learning about the AVERAGE

We are handling data and analysing.  

What is the mean , mode and median average?
What does this vocabulary mean?
Check our learning wall.
5M You are awesome sportsmen and women!
Such determination and perseverance!
I am so proud of the GOLDEN TEAM!
I hope you thanked the SUPPORTERS who cheered you on

I shall put the H/L at the top of the blog so that it is easy to find :)

Monday - Maths groups

Tuesday - Literacy, 5Ws (below)

Wednesday -Matrix

Although maybe dilemma is the wrong way to describe these guys' actions as they, both very poor, found by chance something worth lot of money and they just knew the right thing to do was return it. Good luck in the future to Billy Ray and Glen.

Spend fifteen minutes reading the news articles from the websites below. You might know some other news websites for children. Choose two news stories that you are interested in.

In your red home learning books note down the key information for each article. You can write it in bullet points if you wish.

What is the story about?

When did it happen?

Who is involved?

Where did it happen?

Why did it happen?

If the articles include a quotation, write these down as well.

Space news:

Some interesting recent articles: (lots of quotes just write down one)

My favourite story from last year:
Man Gets Head Stuck In Bin! (NOT Funny!!)

 Fact or Opinion?



We are studying newspapers, their structure, language and content.

We'll write our own once we are confident.

This Literacy will link with our Connected Learning

Try these sites for extra consolidation

Caption and photograph

Headline and stand first

Quote or tweet?



(Newspaper is a compound word! News and paper!)

These are some of the features

  • headline
  • journalist
  • third person
  • past tense
  • sub-heading
  • 5Ws in the
  • lead paragraph/sentence
  • photograph
  • caption
  • column
  • quotations
  • time connectives

What was this article about?

Who is in the photo?!


These sites are brilliant click NOW!!

Everyone loves a great newspaper article

Links to Newsround stories

Child wingwalker

Goldfish flushed down the loo

Bolt wins 100m

Bolt wins 200m

Black Eyed Peas

World record fireworks attempt

School uniforms too expensive

Uniform Debate

Hot dog eating record

Ice cream eating record

We remembered to use our tool kits!

Shapes which have a regular number of edges?

regular polyhedra? Shapes with 5 vertices?

Shapes with curved sides and those with right angles in their faces

Prisms and pyramids

New vocabulary such as congruent...what does it mean? Can you give an example of two congruent shapes

Have fun using tangrams to make shapes of different animals

Tangrams are geometry made into creative fun!

How about tangram toast for breakfast?


Then put on your visual-spatial thinking cap as you discover how to arrange the tiles to make animals, people, or objects.

This is the tangram

If you think you can make these, then be a thinker and try this challenge!

Bet you can't!


A regular quadrilateral

A rhombus (squashed square)


parallelogram (squashed rectangle)


What is an acute angle?
An otuse angle?
A right angle?
A reflex angle?
Can you define them?

Be an inquirer and practice your

knowledge of polygons and polyhedrons

with this click on presentation.


I LOVE it!

  1. What are all 4 sided shapes called?
  2. What are the differences between the three triangles?
  3. How are regular shapes different from irregular shapes?
  4. Define Congruent
  5. What is the difference between edges and verticies?

 Can I clearly explain why we have seasons?

Use the vocabulary...tilt, hemisphere, energy, angle

Thanks to the Tech genius in 5M (Krishay!)

We have screen shots to help explain the seasons!

Aarav linked his maths learning and knows why they are called hemi-spheres!

Vyom linked his acute angles to this learning too.


The sun gives off energy, in the form of light and heat if you get this energy face on it is stronger and thus hotter.

Days are longer.


If it hits at the angle away from the sun it is weaker and thus colder and not so bright. We found out why at the North pole the nights are long and why they don't get sunlight for months.

This also explains why the weather is the opposite if you are in AUstralia and the UK. 
Intergalactic Scale!

In maths today we will have fun creating our polyhedrons with plasticine and toothpicks AND form the faces with bubbles!


What are the properties of a cuboid? A hexagonal prism?

How many verticies does a tetrahedron have?

How is a cube different from a cuboid?

Play with this 

My top tip is start at the back if you are building a cube, it is tough!


We are now TWEETING our learning


Follow us!


WHY is Mr Ben furious with you?

Linking our library research in Connected Learning


The 5 Ws


Let's dunk it!

What type of prism is this?

A tetrahedron! Regular?

Is a cube a prism?

Is it a regular polyhedron?



What would the next in the sequence be?


Justify your decision!

A pentagonal prism








Can I describe polygons using mathematical language?

Try it with your friends!

Parallel lines are the same distance apart

Perpendicular lines might cross at a right angle

Perpendicular lines meet at a right angle

Parallel lines never meet


A real journalist comes to Year 5!

What did you learn from the expert?

Maths Learning:

Coordinates (Along the corridor, Up the stairs)


Can I explore the size (to SCALE) of the Solar System?

The Earth is small... (scroll down to the bottom)

An online orrery (try saying that fast!)

Very small to very big....

What would it look like if the planets were as close to Earth as the Moon?

From the fruit and veg choose eight fruits that you think represent the size of the planets to scale. The Sun is still a beach ball.

Do you need a clue? What could you use to help compare the sizes?

What is the diameter of a sphere? Choose your planets and put them in the right order from the sun.

Good golly what a week!

Remember to register with Mrs M if you are in Intervention classes or late!


Wow a tiger shark gold medallist!

We are proud of you!


In maths we found out our understanding of Prime Numbers, multiples and factors was in need of some attention.

So we investigated Factors on


Then we used multiples to find out PRIME NUMBERS!

It was a challenge but rewarding!


The Sieve of Eratosthenes crosses out all multiples of 2, 3, 5 and 7 among the whole numbers less  than 101.
The then numbers not crossed out are primes in accordance with the square rule.
  2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10
11 12 13 14 15 16 17 18 19 20
21 22 23 24 25 26 27 28 29 30
31 32 33 34 35 36 37 38 39 40
41 42 43 44 45 46 47 48 49 50
51 52 53 54 55 56 57 58 59 60
61 62 63 64 65 66 67 68 69 70
71 72 73 74 75 76 77 78 79 80
81 82 83 84 85 86 87 88 89 90
91 92 93 94 95 96 97 98 99 100

Colouring Scheme:

Blue - multiples of 2
Green -multiples of 5 but not 2
Yellow multiples of 3 but not 5 nor 2
Red multiples of 7 but not 5 nor 3 nor 2
White numbers not proper multiples of 2, 3, 5 and 7.

The numbers left in white ARE the prime numbers between 1 and 100, namely:

2, 3, 5, 7, 11, 13, 17, 19, 23, 29, 31, 37, 41, 47, 53, 59, 61, 67, 71, 73, 79, 83, 89, 97

We rated ourselves as much improved!

We are more confident now about multiples and factors.

We can do the online learning from home too if we wish to consolidate

A factor is a number that divides into another number EXACTLY.

Multiples are quite the opposite, they are in groups of the number.

Prime Numbers are SPECIAL as they don't appear in any times table. In fact no numbers but themselves and 1 divide into them!

Did you enjoy myimaths or the sieve? Which terms do you know?

We love B1 and the properties of number!

 FLINGING THE TEACHER!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

To improve and step up our writing we have focused on

AF5; Can I use a variety of sentence lengths and structures?

We are aiming high, we are going to concentrate on compound and complex sentences this week.
What are they?
A compound sentence joins 2 clauses together with a FANBOYS!

Matrix Learning is zooming in thick and fast! 

3D thoughtful modelling that is creative, kinesthetic and brilliant learning!

Artistic learning and clearly and confidently explained

Well presented and empathetic learning

Challenging for Mrs M

VERY challenging!

VERY creative and thoughtful...word smart

REFLECTING is superb, it is great for us to see how long you spent and keep track of your balanced tasks

Visually stunning, is this Voyager?


Well put together! Great glossary AND art painting (love the blending and tone!).

Fantastic to keep it in a book...Year 3 will admire this at the EXPO


"Looks wonderful, still making it," Great relection and I am excited!

Gorgeous presentation, this shows pride and care.
Voyager-1 is first man-made object to leave the solar system
The spacecraft Voyager-1 has become the first man-made object ever to leave our solar system.
Scientists say it's now travelling in the space between stars, 12 billion miles away from earth.Nasa has been monitoring it closely since it reached the edge of the solar system last year.They believe it actually left the solar system on 25 August 2012 but could only confirm it late on Thursday night.
Voyager-1's mission
Voyager-1 was launched in 1977 and sent to fly past Saturn and Jupiter.It was only supposed to last five years but has survived for nearly 40 and is still functional.
Jupiter This was the first close-up view of Jupiter from Voyager-1.
It takes 17 hours for radio signals from Voyager-1 to reach Earth from outside our solar system.
A message from Earth
Voyager-1's plutonium power source will run out in about 10 years, at which point its transmitters and instruments will die.
But Voyager-1 has a gold record on board which is full of music, photographs and human speech recorded in 1977.
The golden record
Long after Voyager-1 dies it will carry this message from Earth far across the universe
The only problem?
Voyager-1 will not get near another star for another 40,000 years,
even though it's moving about 100,000 miles an hour.
This week in Connected Learning we will investigate the scale of the planets and try to remember the order ... is there a trick for remembering the order?


Can you explain the seasons in your own words?
Can you use your orrery to do so?

We will explain night and day and the seasons on imovie

Will you be able to explain clearly and confidently?

We assembled and painted

we protedted our clothes and the multipurpose room

we were respectful and cleared up too

We invented the wibble technique

They are going to be awesome!

A mnemonic?
Let us go outside.......
When we have edited and published our creation myths we will look at a different genre, newspapers.
Have you appeared in a newspaper?
Any articles you have read that have been fascinating?

Everyone loves a great newspaper article

Some of our bullseye targets are...

By next Monday I will

  • Know what a prime number is…factor….multiple….
  • Know my 7 or 8 times table
  • Fill in my reading log 5 times with a page number!
  • During BREAK drink water, play in a principled manner... be tolerant of other handballers.... tolerant of....
  • Organised, bring my art shirt...bring my H/L folder...remember my ECA kit…..
  • Handwriting.... tails.... join r and f correctly...
  • Say thank you 4 times to different people
  • Visit the Learning wall when I don't understand
  • Respectful around school, walk quietly  and efficiently.
  • Compliment 3 people
  • try my H/L independently
  • co-operate  with someone new.
  • Confidently communicate with my talking partner

Good Learners growing into GREAT learners!

LITERACY H/L is a reading comprehension....

Read the myth and answer the questions in your red books please.

Due on Thursday. Thanks.

Our new class book :)

What are your initial impressions?

Blurb, genre, author?


Seen the cartoon?


We read the first paragraph of the story … How far had he walked? Where had he come from? How was he made?

The first few pages of the story include a mixture of long and short sentences. Why has the author done this?

I prefer the book, it is a classic, maybe we will watch the film afterwards and you can decide which is best!

Step up writing!

AF 5 Complex sentences

Peer marking writing :)
Our class creation myth
Shared writing.

Although Cesar was dead his legacy lived on. Earth and moon continue to orbit just like the bicycle wheels. Some people say his beard swirls round the Earth as clouds.                            .

Can you comment in relation to AF5 (sentence length and openers)
or yellow t-shirts for sport. Interclass Competitions wear GOLD (yellow!)



We are creative authors. Can you see how successful we are?

Can I write in the past tense? Can I use differentsentence legths? Can I use powerful vcabulary and similies?

Copy and paste your link into a new tab to see the learning.

Read other people's writing and in a comment share your constructive comments!

Most of all, ENJOY!

self registering!

Busy happy days

We are organised and tick off our achievements

Our matrix home learning is learning that interests us, we are proud

We are remembering the division too (INVERSE!)

in mathematics we are improving our recll of multiplication facts


Links to Newsround stories

Child wingwalker

Goldfish flushed down the loo

Bolt wins 100m

Bolt wins 200m

Black Eyed Peas

World record fireworks attempt

School uniforms too expensive

Awesome clip from Praccho!


The most important event to be held at school is the annual Wai Kru Ceremony. Like other schools around the country this always takes place towards the start of the new academic year and always on a Thursday. The students pay respect to their teachers by presenting them with flowers and going down onto the floor to do a krab which is the most respectful way to show respect. The students hope to gain merit and good fortune for the coming year.


All of the students come to school with flowers to present to their classroom teacher. The flowers used in the arrangement are symbolic.

Dok Ma Khue (eggplant flower) stands for respect because when the tree is blooming its branches bend down in the same way a student pays respect to their teacher.

Ya Praek (Bermuda grass) stands for patience or perseverance because although the grass looks wilted it is still very much alive.

Khao Tok (popped rice) stands for discipline because the rice is placed in a pan together and heated up to become popped rice.

Dok Kem has the same name as the Thai word for needle and means the student will be sharp-witted and brainy.

Writing creation myths, building orreries and Roald Dahl Day!

Published Monday, September 09, 2013.
Last updated: Friday, September 13, 2013

 Scroll down for Roald Dahl Day!

Kipper Me-ows: Matrix home learning is 30 mins on a WEDNESDAY

YOU must take responsibility for the folder, presentation and keeping track of your stars

Bring any items in you wish to share on a FRIDAY

Mrs M will check your reflection sheets then!


Are you planning your learning and enjoying it?

Are you researching and being picture smart or logic smart?

Are you learning independently or with some support?

What is surprising you about your learning?


Hari is number smart he found out

An asteroid spins 232 times a second so he took this data and worked out

an asteroid must therefore spin in a minute (x 60) 13,920

and spins in an hour (x 60 again) 835,200!

YES MATRIX home learning is out of this WORLD!


Praccho Found this video of a Canadian astronaut abord the ISS.
Listen to the words and look at the lack of gravity, the guitar spins rock!
Remember PLACE VALUE and the decimal point is CRUCIAL to successful learning in B1
This should be back up learning to consolidate your understanding.  When you think you are a genius try FLINGING ME, but be kind ;)
ECAs Begin today.
Where is your ECA?
Which bus are you on afterwards?
If you have forgotten where can you look independently in the classroom?

We went to the DT room, we had to use DT skills

Today wasn't about DESIGN but it was about exploring how to use our TECHNOLOGY skills

We had to saw safely

We had to use different shaped pieces of wood and the dowling was tricky to saw

We had to follow a plan and cut our 6 pieces accurately

We had to measure precisely

And use the drill safely (GOOGLES!) We looked a little like minions!

We were accurate and took a risk doing something we were a bit nervous about

We will use our orrery when making an imovie explaining how we get day and night

We will also have to explain how we get years and months

Our big question is "How does SCIENCE affect our understanding of our place in the world?''

So we will use our models to maybe try and explain the seasons too

We will paint them  on Thursday

How does the moon affect the tide?


Some of these presentations may help your learning, have a look at them before the next Connected Learning lesson to have some background understanding.
Some of you asked about phases of the moon, waxing and waning, full and cresent....this is difficult to understand but if you want to know more and you are curious take a look at this

Our spelling session today focused on



Did you write one on the window?

For H/L Please choose the activity that is the best fit for you.

Homophones are words that sound the same but are spelt differently and have different meanings. e.g. to, too and two.



Match the words below to the correct picture.

Write the answers in your LITERACY H/L book.

Write down which words are homophones of each other.











Choose the correct homophone to complete this sentence.

(a) The boy put shampoo on his (hare/hair).

(b) Mum put some (flower/flour) in the cake mix.

(c) James didn't have a very good (nights/knights) sleep.

(d) A rabbit is a bit like a (hare/hair).

(e) Tony got chased by a large (bare/bear).




The words below have homophones. Find the other one!













Choose the correct homophone to complete the sentences.

(a) Lucy couldn't wait to (meet/meat) her friend.

(b) Andrew (missed/mist) the bus.

(c) The mouse got his (tale/tail) caught.

(d) Glen has a long (wait/weight) for the bus.

(e) The cat hurt its (pour/poor/paw).

(f) The old man had no money, he was (pour/poor/paw).

(g) "Could you (pour/poor/paw) the orange juice, please?"

(h) Mark got a letter in the (mail/male).



Explain the differences between these words.

(a) or and oar

(b) sail and sale

(c) saw and sore

(d) maid and made

(e) main and mane




Try and find homophones for some of these words.































If you have time consolidate your learning!

Play these







Can I explain why the sun moves in the sky?

I thought it was still!

In iTime we found out Miss Bo's rays of light travelled in straight lines.
When they hit Earth we had day.
The earth spins on its axis so we have day, at DAWN the sun rises in the east, this is because the Earth is spinning.
At DUSK the sun sets in the west as the earth is spinning into the shadow.


Can I explain why I can see the moon? I thought it didn't give out light!

Midori was a great moon, she doesn't give out light. We see the moon because the light from the sun is reflected OFF the moon into our eyes.
This link works in school only.

Can I use itime to answer questions?

Can I use my itime to explain concepts

Can I explain the seasons?

SOme of us used SOLAR WALK to find out about seasons. It is the ANGLE of the sun's RAYS! Not the distance from the sun that gives us winter and summer.
We all thought it was the distance but actually it is the angle and strength of the rays
Science is affecting our understanding of our place in the world!



We discussed MISCONCEPTIONS in our scientific understanding.

This is when we misunderstand an idea

We discussed centrifugal force and gravity

We nearly had an accident!

We made models

some of could try and work out an ECLIPSE!

the cocktail stick was the earth's axis (23 degrees tilt)

The earth turns anti clockwise

so it looks like it rises in the east and sets in the west

on the globe the shadows changed

Shadows are long in the morning and afternoon but short at mid day as the sun is right above us

Hands on learning

Our explanations are clear and detailed

We used technical vocabulary

ANd we put it on the learning wall.





Practice your pounds and pence
How are decimals linked to pounds and pence?
Giving change is tricky with column subtraction, count on!


A clause is a group of words which can be used either as a whole sentence or as part of a sentence.

A clause must always have a verb in it.

  • The monster looked fierce.
  • He stared at Garry.

(Here we have 2 single-clause sentences.)

The monster looked fierce and he stared at Garry.

(You now have a two-clause sentence by joining the two single-clause sentences together using a conjunction.)


A main clause is complete on its own.

It may be a complete sentence written with a capital letter and full stop (or ?!):

Alice saw a rabbit.

Anna is eating her favourite supper.

Finally, we arrived.


Simple sentences consist of just one main clause:

Hannah is eating her favourite supper.

Finally, we arrived.

Compound sentences consist of two or more main clauses – clauses of equal weight, joined together by and, or, but, or so. (connectives or conjunctions)

I’ve lost my school bag but the keys are here so I’m not locked out.

It’s late, so she’s not going.

I like reading and I love Hemingway.


Complex sentences contain one or more subordinate clauses.

Subordinate clauses

A subordinate clause is part of a larger clause.

He burns easily if he doesn’t use sun cream.

Where is the cup of tea that you promised to make?

Everything she buys is really expensive.

The class I taught last year all did very well.


Bottoms? Nostrils?

POUNDS sterling!  £


Do you column your change or numberline (count on) it?

Which method do you prefer?

We tied our decimal learning together

We can confidently work in a shop

We can work out the change and


We did a few problem solving activities after reflecting on the learning yesterday


We can do it!

Seth taught Mrs M a method and we put it on the learning wall

He was an expert that taught us all



Now we are practicing mathematical language.

What is a prime? Factor? Multiple? What does digit and product mean?

Let's have fun with puzzles!




What acitivities are you doing?

Delving into Mr Twit's beard with a microscope?

Water colour painting like Quentin Blake?

Making chocolate Like Willy Wonka

Or, acting out and watching a Roald Dahl script?

Yikes? Out of this world creatures?!!!!!!!!!

What is inside his beard?



Mr Ben  A maggot

What is this?

Balloons in Mr Twits beard?

Can I use a microscope carefully?

Nature is delightful!

Mr Twit's beard is not



Did you look inside a nostril?


Focusing was tricky

A leg, MOUSE fur AND a FLEA in the beard

You needed light

Which tool was the most powerful?

Which microscope was easiest to use?

Did your results surprise you?

What would you like to study in greater magnification next time?


Wowsers, live footage from 5M

A spiders leg!

Superb recording skills.

Was your magnification x10 or x40?

These results were stunning, maybe there is a kingdom of mites here?!

Do you know where the ocular and objective lenses are?


Mr Twit's beard was really foul

Khun A and Mr Burrell MANY MANY thanks for giving us this great opportunity!

We can't wait to use this equipment in secondary in the future.

The reason we have night and day is because the word is always spining so when themoon is faceing the sun its obovly night in that area. on the over side of the earth is night

Comment By Molly 

We have night and day because the earth spins around and it takes 24 hours for it to turn fully. the sun stays still at all times even though it looks like it moves across our sky it isactually the earth that is moving.we have months because it takes 28 days for the moon to orbit earth. the earth also orbits the sun this takes a year.

we have day and night because when earth spins the light from the sun shines on side of the earth the other side of the earth is having night so write know it is night on the other side of the earth and we are having night and day

We have seasons because the earth does spin but if your far away from the sun you will have winter. The other siden will be summer.

Published on Tuesday, September 10, 2013
Comment By Adam 

The reason we have day and night because of the axis of the Earth. The country that is not getting the full strength of the sun's light is the season that is winter in that country. I really enjoyed this learning topic!

ECA confirmations TODAY

Bangkok Patana Annual Fun Run is taking place on Sunday 29th September. You can register by collecting an Entry Form from the Primary Office or Reception today!

Last week at the Year 5 Parents Meeting, many of your parents asked for a list of recommended books for 9-10 year old.

Here it is!

Remember, reading every day is SO SO SO important to your development as a learner. Non-fiction is great for finding out about the weird and wonderful world we live in, but reading quality fiction (stories) is how you learn how good authors use their imaginations and where you will pick up new words and phrases to use in your own writing.

Keep recording your daily reading in your reading diary, and bring it in every Wednesday, so I can check what and how much you are reading each day. Remember, a quick flick through an information book or a five minute read of a favourite picture book does not need to go into your reading diary, the pages you have read of your fiction book does.

This list is just the ‘tip of the iceberg’ really. There are many, many more fantastic books out there. Please share your favourite books (one book or a series) as a comment at the end of this post.

Happy Reading!

Have you wondered?

During itime you can answer a question that interests you!

We will also use the ipads and the APP solar is in 3D!

Our Literacy Learning wall is growing!

We compared and contrasted.

We spotted patterns in the myths

We will begin to plan our own

What will you create?

Rain? Clouds? trees? Thunder? Mountains and valleys? Ponder!

We have been mentally adding and subtracting.

Which method do you prefer?

Some methods are better for some calculations!

Delightful poems about YOU!

Hiiiiiii YYYAAAAAAAAAAaaaaaaaaaa

How does science affect our understanding of our place in the world?

This connected Learning wall is growing with home learning explanations and diagrams, wow Midori you're an artist!

We all understood it from your clear , labelled  diagram.

There are photos of us representing the layers of the Earth.

The eggs and smell have disappeared but your learning is recorded :)

Great reward time plasticine models!

Are YOU the next Nick Park?


We set our NEW BULLSEYE targets today...will you achieve them?
What did you challenge yourself to do?
Will you be able to scream next week?

We set our bullseye targets

We used the IB attitudes

We want to raise our standards

By next Monday I will…….

  • Reading every night, guided reading manners, library books
  • Principled…break time behaviour, behaviour in other classes eg Thai
  • Risk taker, vocabulary, sentence openers,
  • Knowledgeable spelling book, learning wall, maths, connected learning, blog
  • Home learning…complete, 20 mins, quiet, best of my ability
  • Open minded, sitting girl/boy, Polite, ECA
  • Thinker, ask questions, active learning.
  • Communicator, paired work, group tasks, speaking to the class.
  • Reflective, PMI my work, choose what I am best at, look at a task, what could I do better?
  • Caring, help, monitor job, family
  • Balanced, h/w completed well, fun, ECA and reading.
  • Independent learner? ACTIVE.
Will we disturb Mr Ben next week?

Can I use a compass?

We will learn how to use a compass in art and use this skill to draw an accurate labelled diagram of the Earth

It is harder than it looks

TOP TIP: hold the top! Or, hold the the point arm of the compass

When we had mastered this new skill we added tone (light and dark) to make our planets or bubbles 3D

It was a tough but fun challenge

I can draw a circle with a compass, can you? Rate yourself!

Where is the light?

Which is the dark and light sides?



Nice perspective!

SQUINT! Blended tone?

Well done Molly ;)


due Thursday

Use your senses, similies, a thesaurus and your creative juices to conjure up delightful space sentences and phrases.

1. word shower

list and record in 5-10 minutes all the rich and beautiful words you can to describe our universe.

eg; silence, black, icy, suspended, still....

2. construct sentences

Start each sentence differently, SCAV! Aim to use your word shower words in 4-6 sentences.

eg; Silently, stars were hanging, suspended in the thick black sky.

Like sweet candy floss, clouds protected the planet.

3. Reflect

Any editing required?


Even though the galaxy....

Gracefully, the moons....

Peacefully, .....

Desolate and lonely......

probe, red dwarf, red giant....

Cloud, craters, moon, sun

feeling tiny,.....


Because the sun....


twinkle, sparkle, majestic.


Beat 169 minutes, 90% 1 try!


Can I use tools and new skills to create an orrery?


What did khun Vutty teach us?

How will I be safe?


What will I need?

What tools will I use?

I will mark the wood to be precise, to be exact




USE with a teacher close by


Here is the matrix for our 'Out of this World' home learning project. You need to choose a variety of activities to complete and you must reach a minumum of 60 stars in the five weeks allowed.

You can use every Wednesday home learning time to work towards 60 stars over the next five weeks. We will be expecting your final pieces (in a nicely decorated folder or scrap book) by Friday 4th October.

Plan your time carefully. Speak to your parents about which activities would be a good idea to get involved in. If you have additional spacey ideas for things you could be leanring about at home, check with your teacher first.

You do not have to bring something in every Friday (some things may take you more than a week) but I will be checking weekly what you are doing at home, and if you are on track for 60 stars.

Good luck on your mission and have fun!


A Solar System mobile using painted eggs??







Maths subtraction Bingo


Have you added anything?


mum, dad, 3 children in the back

don't hold the pencil too tight or too low

posture is good :)

this presentation is excellent and shows you how to form your letters BUT it takes a while to load, PLEASE check it out!


Can you find out information independently?

It is 3D, could you navigate the solar system?

Could you see night and day?


In maths we explored squared numbers and their patterns and we playind Bingo!


Why are they called squared numbers?

We found some tables tricks

Which can you use proficiently?

Which table will you focus on on Friday?


TANGRAM morning fun

Some of us made a candle

some of us managed a cat!

In guided reading we focused on retrieving information, how are information texts organised to help us do this?

We found out about the moon.

The surface can be very hot 123C or cold -167C.

It isn't flat, why?

I feel the need for some SCIENCE!
Our guiding question is
Can I conduct a FAIR TEST?
What is a FAIR TEST?
Does a larger asteroid create a larger crater?

Make one small, one medium and one large asteroid out of plasticine out of three pieces of plasticine. Use double the weight of plasticine each time.

Drop each asteroid onto the moon’s surface from a height of one metre.

Measure the diameter of the crater.

Repeat three more times and record your results.

Work out the mean diameter of the crater created by each
different asteroid.


Why does a scientist take repeated results?

How did you make the test fair?

What was kept the same?

Was our theory or hypotheses correct?


Diameter 1


Diameter 2

Diameter 3

Mean average

(Add ÷3)

Small ball





Medium ball





Large ball





We discussed the idea.

The bigger the asteroid, the bigger the crater?

We predicted.

As a team we thought HOW

We made it fair

SAME height

SAME shape

SAME surface

SAME ruler!

SAME speed (drop not throw)

We repeated the diameter readings

We had fun

We worked together

We collected reults and worked out the average

We were fair, the only thing that was different was the size, these are variables, things you can vary or change

Next time we could investigate

different heights, materials or shapes but can we make it fair?



My Maths group....practice your tables online!

Which multiplication table is your target?


Maths focus Groups today 


Well done :)

Did you work on your multiplication target?

Could you prove you had got it?

Did you challenge yourself?

How are your mental skills and understanding of mathematical language?

Girls did you use the side field on Friday for football?

COSMIC comet!

We hope you felt proud, admired and respected



As promised the may help your creation myth imagination, it may make you think about how science affects our understanding of the universe.

Comment By Mrs Measures 

My favourite book (and I have quite a few) has to be the Anne of Green Gables series that was written many years ago by L.M. Montgomery. It is the story of an orphan called Anne (with an e) who goes to live and work with an elderly brother and sister on a farm. They were hoping for a boy who could work on the farm but instead they got Anne who gets herself into scrapes and turns their world upside down. However, they soon bond and it is a wonderful heartwarming tale...also on DVD.

I also like Wayside School and Billionaire boy. Oh and Danny Champion of the World and Stig of the Dump. If you like fantasy the Wizard of Earthsea is good too.

Books are great.

Ms.Measures is the best teacher in the whole school and is very educated.
I cant wait to show my lovely teacher and my lovely class my home learning project.
I also love the writer of this poem project.
If I want the best class, i obviously know that it is this class.
I know I will have the wonderful year of my whole life. This is a memory I will never forget.
Thank you for letting me have a wonderful class and teacher.
