Celebration of Work

13/10/2017 - Year 5 have been learning to round to estimate answers in maths this week, as well as moving onto addition and subtraction of decimals. In English we have been using figurative language to describe our dragons and we have also started to learn the Ukulele in Music.

In PE we have been trying to think of different ways of creating and adapting aerobic exercises. We have enjoyed coming up with ways to challenge our classmates.


29/09/2017 - Year 5 have been continuing to create our newspaper report about the declaration of World War 2, which we will be writing up very soon, in English and we have moved on to addition in maths. The pupils have all done very well at getting to grips with addition with 5 and some 6 digits numbers and some have even managed some particularly challenging questions set by Mr Capp!

In science we have been carrying out experiments looking at static electricity by seeing if hair colour made a difference to how much confetti a balloon would pick up.  The balloons have also featured in PE where the pupils have been showing off their ability to think of creative ways to get them around the hall whilst adhering to some very stringent rules!


15/09/2017 - In year 5, we are currently improving our knowledge of place value in maths in a number of ways, including using manipulatives. We are working on describing a post-apocalyptic scene in English and we have been learning all about electricity in science.

The class is settling in really well with year 5 expectations.

We are working hard to make sure that we learn our spellings and achieve our mathletics targets.
