During maths, we have been looking at column addition. WOW – my socks have been blown off! Year 5 are fantastic at this method! We have been solving problems within is and have a clear understanding now.
In English, we have been writing newspaper reports from Percy Jackson and the lightning thief capturing the moment of when the car flipped off the roads and a mighty minotaur captured his mother and Grover.
During the afternoons, we have been practising the skill of throwing the ball and playing endball. In history, we have been using our comparison skills to compare Ancient Greek democracy compared to today. Women could not vote! During RE, we have been researching saints and looking at St George in further detail.
Thank you for all the homework projects so far.. they are ace!
This week, our head teacher award went to Maisie Hughes for a fantastic comparative piece looking at democracy now comparing it to Ancient Greek times. Our core value was supportive and it was awarded to Jacob Bell!
What a fantastic start to Year 5! We have had a few busy weeks and enjoying the new challenges.
In maths, we have been developing a further understanding of place value and looking at numbers to a million. We have been comparing, rounding and ordering numbers.
During English, we have been exploring our new text, which is Percy Jackson and the lightning thief, that links beautifully to our topic (The Ancient Greeks). We have been writing diary entries and taking on role as Percy who has a very adventurous life.
In science, we have been undertaking science investigation and looking at air resistance creating parachutes to test. We have compared Ancient Greece to nowadays. Can you believe they had to share a toilet and bath with the whole town?!
Well done to Ruby for receiving the core value vote from her peers for always being RESPECTFUL.
The head teacher award went to Megan Oliver for having an amazing attitude towards her maths. She has fully embedded her problem solving skills within place value.
