Year 5 Update

Year 5 continue to work extremely hard with all their learning!

In English we have been working on ‘The Tempest’ by William Shakespeare. The children have completed work to help them understand the intricate characters and plot. They have written from a character’s viewpoint, written their own dialogues between characters and even written insults using Shakespearean language!

Their reading tasks have been around ‘Why the Whales came’ by Michael Morpurgo. The children have used a range of skills to retrieve information, infer characters’ emotions and actions and develop an understanding of author’s intent.

In Maths we have worked on Polygons – defining regular and irregular polygons and using known facts about rectangles to find angles and sides. We also completed work on converting from metric to imperial measures, particularly for length.

Our topic work on coasts is continuing – the children are learning about coastal erosion and the ways that we try to protect the coast with different sea defences.

We are looking forward to the conclusion of our Enterprise Project on Wednesday 21st June (2.45 – 3.30pm) – we will be holding the sale of cookies, mocktails and dips at the end of the Open afternoon.
