We are extremely impressed with how Year 5 have embraced the new challenges and responsibilities that come with being in Upper Key Stage 2. They have portrayed a very positive outlook towards their learning and have particularly been engrossed in their new class book, Wolf Brother. As part of their learning in English, Year 5 enjoyed a freeze frame activity where they expressed the thoughts and feelings of characters from the book through drama. They have also written some excellent descriptive pieces about the wolf which include an array of powerful adjectives.
In mathematics, the children 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.
In PE, the children really enjoyed their first cross country session; it was excellent to see them challenge themselves both physically and mentally. As well as this, they have also enjoyed their gymnastics lessons with coach Rian and their netball lessons with Mr FW.
