Celebration of Work


Year 5 have been learning about multiples and factors in maths this week and starting to better understand prime, square and cube numbers. In English, we have started reading our new text, Stormbreaker by Anthony Horowitz, and we have begun writing a suspenseful narrative.

In music, we are starting to get more used to the ukulele and in languages we have begun learning French - the children have been quick to pick up a few phrases!



Year 5 have been looking at problem solving and reasoning in maths before moving on to statistics, where we have started to look at reading and interpreting line graphs. We have also collected data in PE based on our heart rate after exercise, which we will use to create our own line graphs.

In English, we are finishing our recounts, where we have showed off our ability to changed between the past and present tense. We will be finishing this term with a character description. Science has seen us delve further into the complexities of light - we are looking at reflection this week and amazing inventions that have been made utilising it.



Year 5 have moved onto addition in maths, moving on to 4 digit column addition, including problem solving and reasoning tasks. In English, we have start to write a recount based on the short film 'Soar' and have tried our hands at acting out the emotions of this.

This week in Science, we will be learning more about reflections - using different light sources and mirrors to be understand this sometimes confusing concept.



Year 5 have begun our year in maths by focussing on the place value of numbers up to one million and ordering and rounding numbers. In English, we have been describing our battlefields and working on our use of figurative language. Science has seen us delve into the topic of Light - looking at luminous/reflective objects and having fun with a plasma ball.
