Welcome to Year 5
A huge thank you to the children in Year 5, who have been really supportive and welcoming. They have also made a great start to the new academic year. Well done for their effort and hard work over the first weeks.
In Maths, we have been developing our place value knowledge through reading, writing and comparing number up to 1 000 000. The next unit is addition and subtraction.
Our core text, Blitzed, has provided many writing opportunities already. The pupils have been experimenting with relative clauses, modal verbs and parenthesis! We look forward to our educational visit to Eden Camp - hopefully we won't time slip back to World War II like the main character, George.
Our Science topic ‘Out of This World’ has allowed us to explore the Solar System. Did you know? The Earth could fit inside the Sun over 1 000 000 times! We have compared the ideas of philosophers Aristotle and Copernicus through their Geocentric and Heliocentric models of the Solar System.
The Anglo-Saxon period of history shaped many parts of England as we know it today. We have learned about who they were and where they have come from. We are currently explaining why King Vortigern invited Saxons onto his land and the significance of this event.
