Year 5 Curriculum Update

In maths, we have learned a lot about fractions, decimals and percentages.  We are now increasing our speed and accuracy in standard written methods for addition, subtraction, multiplication and division.  We are also applying our skills to solve multi-step word problems.

In English, we have been writing discussion texts, using our learning in history as our context.   Was Alfred really ‘great’?  And were the Vikings just raiders?  Or were they traders, or explorers?

We have enjoyed designing sails, shields and dragon heads for our own Viking longships which we will make next week!
