A great start to the new term

We hope you all had a fantastic holiday.  The Year 5s have returned to school with a fantastic attitude. This is perfect as it ties well with our school value this half term, positivity.

In our literacy lessons, we have had some fantastic discussions on animal hunting to begin our unit on argument texts and begun to think about the organisation of the text. Next week, we will be working on our powers of persuasion and learning some sentence types that will hopefully pull on people's emotions.

Maths has been testing as we have begun our work on division and using the chunking method.  We have been really pleased with the way everybody approached the work.

Thursday was an exciting day for us all as it was the start of our new carousel morning.  The children will move round three lessons in groups made up of children from both classes.  They will take part in a grammar lesson, a P.E. session and learn how to play the ukulele.

We have also made a start on our new topic, Explorers.  The pupils explored the school grounds looking for information on different explorers.  We have also started our new reading book, The Explorer by Katherine Rundell.

We hope you all have a great weekend. 
The Year 5 Team
