Year 5 Weekly News

Our week in three works — rounding, writing and role-play. Oh and our Big Art is taking shape too. Our Ancient Greek Pots will be up on the wall in no time at all!

In maths, we have been recapping our rounding knowledge during our starter tasks. We're much more confident than we were last week. Your hard work and perseverance has paid off. Good work team! In the main part of our lessons, we have been looking at the place value of numbers up to 100,000 and how to put them on a number line. We got a bit stuck with number lines, so we pressed pause on PowerMaths and spent yesterday deep diving into how use them. Today, we have been comparing 5 and 6-digit numbers.

In English, we were introduced to a monstrous beast — the Minotaur! We watched clips and studied pictures to gather words and create noun-phrases and adverbial phrases (it was a great chance for us to refresh our thesaurus and dictionary skills too). Finally, we then weaved these words together to create some wonderful descriptive writing.

In our afternoons, we began our week with R.E. We started our new R.E. topic — Good News — and used role-play and freeze frames to recreate 'The Parable of the 'Paralysed Man'. We will be performing this to the class next week. The following day, we begin one of our science topics. . . Space! Lots of us are very excited about this topic (including me). We gathered our initial ideas and had a debate about whether the earth is flat or spherical. We went outside looked for evidence to support our theories. This helped us understand why people originally thought the earth was flat, even though we know it's round. On Wednesday, we learnt that the Ancient Greek era can be divided into four main periods; we learnt how pottery can be used to identify these periods and we used cake to help explore this! Using cake to help us learn is always good! This week, your P.E and music lessons were on Thursday — in P.E you continued with learning about Hockey. Finally, we finished the week with Big Art and French.

It's been a busy week, but a great week too.

Hope you all have a lovely weekend,

Miss P
