W/E 15th September 2017

What a fab week we’ve had in Year 5! Not only have the children been persistently green in and around school, they have also produced some amazing work. In writing we have been writing a setting description using a range of techniques such as, similes, fronted adverbials and personification. We are developing our understanding of what is expected within our maths. We have been focusing on place value which involved working out the value of a digit and understanding the process of adding and subtracting powers of 10. They have also been researching the timeline of film which they are fully engaged in. We have all produced a poster with the important events that happened throughout time.

Congratulations to Seb on becoming this weeks Shining Star, he has a clear understanding of the problem solving aspect within maths.


W/E 8th September 2017

In writing we have been writing a setting description using a range of features, the children have also been able to identify some of their features in their work. In maths we have been looking at place value of numbers to at least 1,000,000. Our topic this term is Entertainment and the children have been discussing and identifying what entertainment is and why, we have also started our new class read ‘Holes’ by Louis Sachar.

Huge congratulations to our first Shining Star Jamie, for outstanding behaviour and attitude towards learning, keep this up!
