The latest Year 5 Learning Update!
English- We have been exploring the story of the Highwayman and having so much fun. We
have been writing a letter to the Highwayman from Bess this week and next week we will start our journey on biographies – starting with writing one about our friends in class.
Maths – We have been continuing our fractions journey and adding fractions with different
denominators. We know all about improper fractions, mixed fractions and how to add them all.
Science – We have begun our Science topic about the earth and Space. We went on an amazing trip where we got to sit back (in very comfy seats) and look up at the ceiling where we could see a space show about all of the planets.
Art & DT – We are beginning a new D&T unit where we will be making our very own cam toys. We have been researching about Cam Toys this week and experimenting next.
Humanities – We continue look at History through the ages of the Stone Age to the Anglo Saxons. We have written ads for a house in Skara Brae learning all about the geographical
features of it. Next week it’s all about Anglo Saxon invaders.
