Spring 2 2018 

In Year 5 this half term, we have been extremely busy developing our minds and ensuring that our brains absorb information like sponges!

Maths

We have been learning all about decimals, percentages and fractions and their relationship to one another. Although we found this tricky at first, we persevered, and discovered that, if we work together, problems become easier and more solvable. We have been solving realistic problems and learning a little bit about money and bank accounts.

English

Year 5 have absolutely loved reading 'Skellig.' This book was our whole class text, which means that all of our English work this half term was based around the events in the book. The children have been captivated by the emotional rollercoaster of a story. To say that they have enjoyed it is an understatement. The children have produced lots of amazing writing and are now becoming proud of their own work.

Other Subjects

In CCL this half term, Year 5 have been learning to sew; this has been a challenge, but one that the children have really enjoyed. In Science, the children have been extending their knowledge so that it is out of this world – our topic has revolved around Earth and Space. The children have liked learning about the planets, the Sun and the Moon. In RE, the children have been learning about Lent and Easter – this is something that lots of the children know about, but as a class, we have enjoyed discussing the key aspects of these events.
