Take a look at our amazing artistic skills!
In English we have been studying The Green Book by Jill Patton-Walsh. The children have looked at characters, language and structure of the story. We have used our artistic skills to help show the learning we have undertaken and I am incredibly impressed by the quality of the work the children have come up with already! By the end of year 5, I can’t even imagine how good their pieces will be!
In maths we have been looking at place value, negative numbers and the properties of shape. The children have retained so much of their learning despite having a prolonged absence from school. The knowledge they have retained is amazing and will ensure that they can make amazing progress this year. I am so happy to have a class with such a strong maths foundation. Well done to everyone for keeping their learning at home and thank you so much to all the teachers who have had them before and taught them so well!
Mountains & Space Topic
In our topic sessions, the children have been learning about space and mountains. We have learned about the history of the space race, the order of the planets in our Solar System and we have been experimenting with new forms of presentation to make our learning look amazing! This is only the starting point too; we will be presentation professionals by the end of the year. I am so looking forward to all the amazing learning we have still to come in year 5!
