Year 5 children are expected to read for at least 10 minutes every day and hand in their reading record daily. Please sign their record and encourage them to read a range of genres. There are banded books in school in addition to the books in the school’s library and the class book corner (including those in the ‘Classics Challenge’).
Learning this week:
We have linked our English and Topic lessons very closely lessons this week. Several of the Industrial Revolution’s key changes took place during Victoria’s reign, so we have been learning about the impact of this revolution on the country. We then used this knowledge to write a persuasive letter from the Prime Minister Sir Robert Peel to Queen Victoria persuading her to support and encourage the Industrial Revolution for her country.
In maths are learning focused on angles at the beginning of the week. We developed our mathematical vocabulary and understanding of acute, obtuse, right angles, straight line, reflex angles and full turn angles. We then progressed our learning onto capacity and worked hard to estimate amounts and gage how much a container may contain.
Next week we will be learning about the British Empire. Research the countries that are in British Empire.
There is no right or wrong way to complete a Love to Learn task! Please be as imaginative or as creative as you would like! Love to Learn tasks should be returned on the Wednesday following them being set. Whilst books may not be formally marked, in class we will spend time looking at and enjoying what everyone has learned at home and rewards and house points will be given!
