It has been lovely to see how quickly the children have settled into life in Year 5!

In English, we started to read Wolf Brother and delve into the world of a quest book. The children have written setting descriptions of the forest using fronted adverbials, brought the wolf to life using charcoal, and participated in a drama activity to help recall what has happened so far.

In Geography, the children using the playground to put their classroom learning about the eight-point compass into practise by reading and following directions and then following verbal directions from their peers.

Place value has been the focus of our Maths learning so far this year. We have been looking at numbers up to 1,000,000 and partitioning into 1s/10s/100s/1000s etc. We have been using place value charts to help us and this was particularly helpful when adding 1s, 10s, 100s and 1000s to specific numbers.

We have participated in practical science lessons looking at forces generally and then at gravity and friction. We used Maltesers to show forces as a push or a pull, measured the weight and mass of an object using a Newton Meter and scales and measured the amount of friction of different pairs of shoes.

The children started their Gymnastics sessions on Tuesday morning last week by developing vaulting skills and then they practised passing and shooting in our Hockey lessons on a Wednesday. Please make sure the children have their PE kits in school all week.
