Welcome back year 5! What have you enjoyed most about being back in school?
This week we have been working hard on planning our writing in English, which will be a piece of descriptive writing set in the early chapters of our new book this term, ‘Oliver Twist’, the classic by Charles Dickens. This all sets off our amazing new topic of the Victorians for this term. Reminder! Victorian dress up and interactive WOW day is Monday 15th May. Get your outfits ready!
In Maths, we have started looking at area and perimeter of shapes and are having some great fun problem-solving with these.
In Science, we are looking at lifecycles of flowers and how sexual reproduction takes places amongst flowers – we learnt that bees and other flying insects contribute approximately £100,000,000 to the economy every year for the amazing job they do with pollinating plants – wow!
In PSHE, we have been having interesting and useful debates about how to lead a healthy lifestyle, and look after both your physical and mental health.
