We are very impressed with how quickly the Year 5 children have settled back into the school environment and how well they have adapted to the new school rules.
Similarly, they have portrayed a very positive and enthusiastic outlook towards their learning in all subjects in the curriculum this week. In English, Year 5 have been engrossed in the novel ‘Wolf Brother’ and particularly enjoyed a freeze frame activity where they expressed the thoughts and feelings of characters from the book through drama.
In mathematics, Year 5 have been focusing on place value and rounding numbers to the nearest 10, 100, 1000 and 10,000.
All of the children have showed a conscientious attitude to their work which has been very pleasing to see.
They have been enjoying the beautiful weather this week by reading outside and through their outdoor P.E lessons which have focused on throwing and catching in rugby.
In Science, the children have been learning about the reproduction of different flowers and they then had the opportunity to draw and paint botanical flowers in art.
