On Monday, both year 5 classes had Nick and Adam from Pompey in the Community in school to talk to them about inspiration.
We thought about our dream jobs, who inspires us to achieve our goals, whether a famous celebrity or a family member, and what steps we might need to follow to realise those dreams.
We were introduced to the story Jamie Johnson in the book ‘The Kick Off’ and children were challenged to write a motivational speech to the main character in a competition to win a pair of tickets to a Portsmouth home game next season.
After the class based session, it was then outside (or the hall for 5H as it was raining by then) for a series of fun games based on strategy, teamwork and a little bit of luck.
Year 5 are currently trialling the website www.mymaths.co.uk.
It is an online interactive maths site for children of all ages and abilities. It has a series of interactive games, worksheets and lessons that children can access at any time. They are free to play any of the activities from level 2 to level 7 and can track their progress or play for fun.
As part of the trial, year 5 will be using the site to set maths homework for groups of children.

NEW online learning – The Bug Club for reading and phonics
We are trialling the ‘Bug Club’ an online phonics and reading resource for all children from Year R to Year 5.
Please look out for a log in in your child’s home school diary this Friday!
Home Learning for this week will be to go online, use your new log in and try reading some of your new e-books set by your teacher.
Your child will then be able to access reading books online, chosen by their teacher to provide an appropriate level of challenge.
As your child reads the books, they answer questions and this information is fed back to their teacher. They will earn points too!
Please take part in the trial between now and 8 June, if the feedback we get is that this is a useful addition to home learning then we will invest in the subscription from September.
Here is a link to the World Cup Adventure Story which is updated with a new chapter every day during the Football World Cup, based on the previous day’s games.
On Monday 28th April, 5C started swimming lessons. When we got in our groups we started to learn some important swimming skills including backstroke, breaststroke and how to tread water etc. We can’t wait to go back!!! Thank you to the people who teach us and all who organised it.
