Yr 5 Curriculum Update

We have hit the ground running at the start of the Summer term and we’ve alreday covered plenty!
We have been enjoying our book led topic on ‘Why the Whales Came’ by Michael Morpurgo. We have been analysing how an author creates moods and settings to convey their story. We have also looked closely at his use of language devices to create effect.
In Maths we began by looking at place value, ensuring that our understanding of the value of each digit was accurate. We used this skill to help us when we moved on to looking at multiplication. We have become adept at short multiplication and grid methods up to 3 digit X 2 digit numbers. Some of the children have moved on to long multiplication!
