Welcome to our school - full of happy, hard-working children and teachers. We want every child to participate fully, respect other people, be independent and determined in achieving excellence.
Welcome to Year 5! Please take a look at the slideshow to see all the brilliant learning that has taken place this term. We're enjoying learning all about North America and are building up to planning a road trip around the USA.
In English, we've been retelling the story of an irritated crab who has been disturbed by an 'unknown' object. Some pictures show our freeze frames as we stepped into the character of the crab, before writing up the story in our own words. We then created information texts about animals of Yellowstone, before choosing an animal of our choice to apply our writing skills to. Some of us even created our own animals from scratch!
We've been building up our resilience in Maths this term by recapping key skills from Year 4 and developing these in Year 5. The children have been using manipulatives brilliantly to show their understanding of place value and the four operations!
Art and science have been two other subjects we've been thoroughly enjoying. We've learnt about American artist Winslow Homer and used his techniques as inspiration for our own art. In science, we've been learning about materials and their properties, which we will continue next term.
See below for useful information!
