Spring Update

Year 5 have had so much fun this term. In Maths they have been learning all about money and decimals. They now know how to compare decimals of different values and order them in ascending and descending order. Through their investigation tasks, the class have made their own challenging questions involving decimals and shared them with their peers – challenging them to try solve it.

In English, Year 5 have studied ‘The Highwayman’, ‘How to be an Anglo- Saxon’ and ‘Amazing Grace.’ They have loved the English texts as each one has brought a different element to their English understanding. With their increase in English understanding, they use more adventurous vocabulary (like parchment and possessions) in their extended writing pieces. Their favourite one being the diary entry they wrote as an Anglo-Saxon.

The excitement extended itself into Science, Geography and History lessons. A lot of practical opportunities have allowed the learners to really dive deep into understanding each concept taught. They particularly loved the science experiment where they worked with different conductors to see which one could melt butter quicker. The year 5’s look forward to the next term where they will be investigating new scienti c concepts, reading new ctional English texts and extending their Maths knowledge when working with Place value.
