This week in Year 5
Year 5 have started a new topic in English (We Travel So Far). We have been exploring migratory animals as we will be writing a non-chronological report about an animal that migrates. Both classes have enjoyed the start of this and are looking forward to producing some artwork and pieces of writing related to the book.
In Maths, Year 5 have been looking at exploring adding and subtracting fractions with the same denominator. Both classes have been working extremely hard on this and have thoroughly enjoyed using a CPA ( concrete, pictorial and abstract) approach in their learning.
Year 5 have continued to look at moving toys in DT and they have been exploring and explaining how the cam system works. If you happen to have any cardboard boxes please can you bring these in so your child can begin to make their prototypes.
