Welcome to Jellyfish.
We are a Year 5 class.
Our teacher is Mrs Lovell and our Teaching Assistant is Mr Jenkinson.
Welcome back to an exciting new term of learning.
We hope you have enjoyed the break and are looking forward to this term’s exciting new learning.
Term 4 Learning in Jellyfish
This term, our Topic is “Peasants, Princes and Pestilence”.
In this topic, we will be exploring Medieval England and the wrath of the Black Death.
Swimming will take place every Tuesday and PE will be on some Thursdays for both classes.
Please ensure that your child has the appropriate kit, clearly labelled.
This term in Maths we will be learning all about fractions and decimals which will lead beautifully into understanding how to perform calculations with these. We will also be solving multiplication and division problems before moving on to data handling.
This term in English we will be improving our descriptive writing skills as we personify pestilence. We will also be looking at creating some journals set in Medieval Britain.
Our 'Coast' Learning Journey continued, with a wonderful trip to Pett Level beach - studying the Sea Defences that protect our precious coastline and learning about 'Long Shore Drift'. Marlin and Jellyfish investigated the impact of the sea on our shores by measuring the erosion of pebbles and taking time to sketch various parts of the beach.
The children, as always, represented the school wonderfully and the day was made even better by the perfect weather!
Year 5 enjoyed another day at the beach when they visited Camber Sands. The sky soon cleared for a beautiful sunny day. The children learnt about the sand dunes as a sea defence and how they are managed so that the sand remains in place. They also looked at economic activities available to tourists and how they benefit the local people. After looking at the different species of plants on the dunes, the children enjoyed the opportunity to create sand sculptures.
Jellyfish visited the Rye memorial as part of their learning journey about World War 1. They placed poppies and had a few moments reflection on local soldiers who had made the ultimate sacrifice.
