Year 5 curriculum update

Well done Year 5 for a fabulous end to the Spring Term.

In English we have finished our work on discussion texts with the children proving to us that they could independently write a discussion text about the Vikings – were they, raiders, traders or explorers?

In Guided Reading both classes have enjoyed the books they have been studying this term: 5S reading ‘The boy who swam with pirahnas’ and 5B reading ‘Rooftoppers’. 5B have even written to the Walt Disney Company in America to tell them that they think it would make a fantastic film – we are waiting for the reply!

In Maths we have revised the formal methods for addition, subtraction, multiplication and division and applied the knowledge in problem solving and reasoning tasks.

In RE last week we looked at the topic of Salvation and what Christians feel about the sacrifice that Jesus made. The work from the children was thoughtful and mature.

Today we have held our Sponsored Sing! Wonderful sounds and funky moves were observed as the children sang a diverse range of songs including numbers such as ‘We are the Champions’, ‘I wanna be like you’ and ‘Supercalifagilisticexpialidocious’!

Thank you to all the children for their hard work and to the support from families – may you all have a wonderful Easter break.
