What we have been learning this week...

Cherry Class have completed some fantastic work in Science learning about the different planets in our solar system. They have drawn diagrams and written down key facts about the inner and outer planets and we discovered some fascinating facts! In English, we have been researching a person of interest ready to write a biography next week. The children chose some really interesting people and I was impressed at their level of knowledge. In Maths, we have built on the previous week’s learning by looking at numbers to one million and securing our knowledge of place value.

What we have been learning this week...

Welcome back and welcome to Year 5! The children have had a very exciting week and they have settled in really well. In English, we have been learning about biographies and looked at texts about Mary Seacole and Galileo! The children worked incredibly hard, took very detailed notes and asked meaningful questions. In Maths, we have been looking at numbers to 100,00, ordering and comparing them and using different representations. In Science, we have started our Space topic and learnt about when scientists and astronomers discovered the world was round and not flat. The children were fascinated by how the scientists used the moon and ships to show the curvature of the earth!

How you can help

* Please ensure your child is reading every day.

* Please  ensure your child us secure with times tables. Regular TT Rockstars practice will help.

* Please encourage your child to use adventurous vocabulary when speaking and writing to help them extend their use of language. 

 Activities we have enjoyed this week...

Here is a selection of our Kindness leaves where we have recorded something kind that we have done for someone, or something kind that has been done for us. Our leaves will eventually create a 'Kindness Tree'. Our Reflection Area has also been updated with some beautiful handmade crosses.

What we will be learning next week...

Next week, we are going to be planning and writing our own biographies next week using our new found skills using relative clauses. In Maths, we will be continuing with our place value topic and further exploring 5 digit numbers. In PSHE, we will be continuing our discussions about how to be kind to one another and how we can show our school values in our everyday lives.
