Autumn 2 - 2019
Year Five have really enjoyed their Stargazers topic and have learnt lots about the planets in our solar system and the movement of the Earth and the Moon. They’ve worked incredibly hard this half term and were thrilled to be given the chance to compete in the Primary Enterprise Challenge. Two groups even made it through to the finals!
Autumn Term has been packed full of fantastic learning. In literacy, we’ve explored The Adventures of Odysseus and created some excellent diary entries and letters. In maths, we have deepened our understanding of place value and began to use manipulatives to explore addition and subtraction. We loved our Pharaohs topic and have learnt so much about Ancient Egypt and how the Egyptians used to live. Our coding topic in computing has been brilliant - we’ve written and debugged our own lines of code!
This half term has been packed full of fun and hard work! We’ve written exciting newspaper reports and worked with decimal numbers up to 3 decimal places. We’ve also started our new topic ‘Beast Creator’ and enjoyed learning about mini-beasts and their habitats.
Spring 2 - 2019
This half term has been filled with excitement.
We’ve had so much fun learning all about rollercoasters and how they work.
Our highlight has to be our enterprise day where we planned and presented our very own children’s radio show!
Spring 1 - 2019
What an amazing topic ‘Stargazers’ has been!
Our work has been out of this world!
We’ve loved exploring universe and our solar system. Our trip to the National Space Centre taught us so much about the stars.
