Year 5 curriculum update

In English we have continued our work on ‘The Tempest’ with the children writing in role and developing a very good understanding of the plot, characters and the setting. Some particularly impressive work from the children describing the magical feast and the effect this had on the characters present.

In Maths we have worked on multiplying fractions and mixed numbers by whole numbers. We have moved onto working with decimals up to 3 decimal places.

Our topic this term on Coasts is now reaching its climax with the children using all the information they have gathered on coastal formation, erosion and sea defences, as well as fieldwork data from the residential trip to Swanage. They are designing their own seaside resort- this includes creating a detailed map, advertising poster and information leaflet.

Thank you to all those who supported the Enterprise project Рthe children showed great enthusiasm and teamwork skills. We will let you know the final amount raised when the Office have finished checking all our calculations Рall money raised will go to St George Foundation.
