Year 5 should be commended on how well they have adapted to their first term back at school. It was wonderful to see Year 5 take joy in both Power of Reading texts that we covered this term; Wolf Brother and Cosmic. The writing that they produced reflected their enthusiasm for the text and their understanding of the characters and themes.
The children enjoyed both recapping and building on their prior knowledge in maths. On the Maths Enrichment Day that they participated in, the activities were money related and the children had the opportunity to discuss which influential figures they would put on a 50p if they were to design their own.
Although they were unable to go on trips this term, they enjoyed a range of workshops in school. During the ‘Map Reading and Orienteering’ workshop the children were fascinated with the many map skills needed to be an explorer and the contents of an explorer’s rucksack.
We were extremely impressed with how inquisitive the children were during their science workshop about space. They asked complex and interesting questions and listened attentively.
We are extremely proud of how tirelessly Year 5 have worked and wish them a well-deserved Christmas break.
