Well, whilst we have had rain, sun, wind, and sleet, we have definitely had hard work coming from our Y5 classroom.

In Maths this week we have investigated angles in many different ways. We have categorised, measured and calculated using known facts. Our protractor skills are getting better, although this could be an area for extra home practise if you have the opportunity and time. Careful reading of the correct scale along with using angle facts to check our answers has kept us challenged. We have also moved on to reading timetables, interpreting information and calculating time differences, using a number line seemed to be our preferred and most accurate method.

This week In English, we completed our journal recount and then carried these skills in to our newspaper article, 'Cave Dwellers in Graffiti Battle.' We have based our article back in the Stone Ages and thought carefully about our phrases as we could not use time, days of the week or months of the year. We concluded our article today and will publish it in our study work books for you to read. Thank you to Mrs Wright for donating a First Newspaper, many of us have enjoyed reading the news and sharing our thoughts. We also took a few moments to marvel at the image of Tim Peake running the London marathon from Space and discussed how this had even been possible.

Our Skara Brae watercolour floorplan has definitely challenged our skills this week, we will now use our new research to think about its history.

This week we also began our new Science unit, Living Things — an investigation into life processes in animals. We considered why reproduction is so important and recapped our knowledge of the reproduction of plants from last term. Our discussion continued with the physical and environmental characteristics of humans, good reasoning as to why some children were left handed when their parents were both right took place.

With Mrs Charlesworth this week music has been the theme of the afternoon as children wrote their own songs and hymns in RE, followed by polishing the rap learnt last week in music.

I hope you have a great long weekend.
Mrs Burns
