Welcome to our Year 5 blog
Come here for weekly updates!
Week beginning 18th September 2017
This week in year 5 has been really exciting.
In Literacy, we have finished writing up our Revolting Rhymes in neat and some of them are on display! We also have started a unit of work on the Industrial Revolution. We have conducted some research on the chrome books and began writing from the perspective of a child in Victorian Britain. We finished the week with a drama lesson where Mr Lingard took us through a ‘mind cinema’ and Miss Cooper led a hot-seating session. We also created some fantastic freeze frames as you can see below!
In maths, we have been focusing on problem solving and using a variety of methods to help us do so. One of these methods is the bar model! We have learned the basics of how this model helps support our understanding of a word question. Miss Cooper informs us we can ask our parents to help us with any bar model homework as they are now experts!
In geography this week, we learned how to read symbols on a map, find a six figure grid reference, plot a route and label the 8 points on a compass.
We are really looking forward to next week and in particular the Theme Day on Wednesday 27th! Don’t forget your costumes!
Happy Friday everyone!
