This week in Year 5…
Year 5 have continued to explore the book ‘Rooftoppers’. This week we have been writing recounts from Sophie’s perspective after she finds out that the national childcare agency wants to put her in an orphanage. We have also started to plan to write a formal letter to Sophie and Charles advising them whether they should run off to Paris.
In Maths, Ayres Class have been looking at square and cube numbers and have also started to explore using short multiplication when multiplying two and three digit numbers by one digit. While Hockney Class have continued to look at short multiplication in a range of problem solving tasks and some children have started to explore long multiplication.
Ayres class have been creating some art pieces that have been inspired by Van Gogh. While in Design and Technology, Hockney class have continued researching and designing moving toys (they are excited to make these toys in the next few weeks).
