Welcome to Year 5
The children have had an excellent start to the year and have all settled in to our Puffins and Owls classes. The children have agreed upon a set of rules that we shall all follow and are showing a great level of maturity and a zest for learning.
Using a story called Elf Road as our inspiration, we are writing our own ‘finding tales’. The children have agreed upon the object that they will find and are busy writing about where it came from and what mystical powers it could. In Guided Reading we have been reading and discussing a book called The Lost Happy Endings.
In Maths we have been adding, subtracting, multiplying and dividing numbers from 1 – 1,000,000! The children have really embraced new methods and are applying their new knowledge to reasoning and problem solving activities.
In science we have been learning about the planets. The children have presented some of their work in assembly and sung a very catchy tune to the school.
In History we have just started to learn about the Mayans. So far we have learnt that they came from Central America. Watch this space for more information, including their love of letters, numbers and chocolate!
