Celebrating Our Success

In Year 5, we love it when we can share successes and achievements. 

 Well done to Bethany and Alexandra in 5N and  Logan and Seanna in 5H for receiving  a 'Star Award'. 

 

Maths in Year 5.

This half term we are studying place value and looking at the importance of knowing what the value of each digit is in a 6 digit number. To help with this, we use concrete materials such as place value counters.

English in Year 5.

This half term in English, we will be studying Beowulf. The children will complete a variety of written tasks linked to the book, both narrative and non-narrative, including continuing accounts of battles between characters, description, writing invitations, advertisements, wanted posters, recounts, explanation texts and creating a map from details given in the text.

 

Anglo-Saxons and Vikings

In year 5, we are currently researching the question 'Where do English people come from?' To start this topic off with a bang, we had a wow day where we made rune stones out of clay, made Viking brooches and baked Anglo-Saxon oatcakes.

Inspire Session

Thank you to all of the parents in 5 who joined us for our DT Inspire Workshop. Children and parents did a fantastic job creating an earthquake proof building. We all had a great time learning about the features of an earthquake proof building and applying them to our own building.
