It's time again to share our news.

Computer Science
We had a great visit to Shavington High School with Y6 to develop our skills and understanding of programming and algorithms using Big Trak, Coding Monkey and a Robotic Arm.

We have been exploring our new class story Wolf Brother and the style of its author, Michelle Paver, in our own writing. She uses personification and likes to write short sentences to create tension. We've been writing in her style and have also planned and written our own version of how Torak (the main character) meets the wolf cub. We hope you'll enjoy reading them and seeing how we've improved our descriptive writing.

I've been very impressed with the positive way the class have taken on our new spellings and word lists! I appreciate it is a lot to learn but the children are doing really well and there will be chance to consolidate the patterns and words learned so far! You should all have a highlighted list of 100 words from this week's 40 word check. You can practice other words in the list if you wish. You may find that you already know how to spell quite a few.

Well done to those children who are actively working on their handwriting: controlling its size, spacing and shape and joining of letters.

As a class we've worked in two groups, one with Mrs Cador and the other with Miss Moseley on percentages and fractions leading for some into equivalent decimals. I've been very pleased with the progress over the last few weeks and how so many of the class are starting to make the connections between the three concepts.
There will My Maths homework to practice and consolidate this work.

Miss Moseley has created a lovely display of the work undertaken during the science unit on Earth, Sun and Moon. The children completed the unit by learning about the phases of the moon and creating a leaflet of all their knowledge.

Our new focus will build on our understanding of the Stone Age and we will begin to consider where and why people began to settle rather than be nomadic people. Part of this work will be supported by a Learning Log task. It will be given as a paper copy at school to take home.

Thank you for getting involved with our WW1 Commemoration led by Miss Pennance. It was wonderful to see so many of you dressed up and for the amazing snippets of family history and special photographs and artefacts you shared. As a class we developed our understanding of the trenches — we wrote poems and created a No Man's Land backdrop for our writing, which we shared in our Whole School Assembly and which is also on display in class.

School Council
We now have two elected members of class representing Y5 at School Council — a boy and a girl. I'll confirm names and let you know who are the two successful representatives for this half term!

The week ahead:
Miss Moseley will be leading our learning focussing on Instructional writing in literacy and Coordinates in Maths and continuing with our settlement focus in our history and geography. We are also leading House worship for the whole school on Thursday! A number of the class will be training to be play leaders too on Tuesday.
