Learning Week Beginning 9th September:


We have all been settling well into Year 5 so far. In English this week, we have focused on a Non-fiction book about Rosa Parks. We learnt all about her life what events took place to make her a big name in history. We took part in role-play to put ourselves into a role and use empathy and emotions to consider how each person may have thought and felt. We then had to use our opinions and write a piece about how we would feel as a witness on the boat. 


In maths this week, we have been learning all about place value with larger numbers. We have looked at the value of each digit in a number (up to million). We then used this knowledge to begin ordering and comparing numbers. We then began to estimate on a number line using these large numbers and different scales. Then we began rounding the numbers using our place value knowledge. 


We would also like to thank those who attended meet the teacher. 

If you were unable to attend please see slides below.

Week beginning 3rd September:


It has been a great first week back in year 5, which has been filled with exciting activities and a pop art project. While getting to know our new teachers we have been learning about who are classes are named after and an artist called Roy Lichtenstein. All of us are settling into our classrooms well and are learning the new school rules. 

Why do you ask us at home what are three school rules are!
