W/B 7th December 2020 Year 5 Blog

Year 5 have been working exceptionally hard this week as well as enjoying a range of Christmas activities. Team Azure, Team Ultramarine and Team Peacock finalised their Christmas videos which will soon be available for parents to view (Mrs Law will send out the link).

Learning this week

In English, the children have been writing playscripts based on a circumstance where they discovered an alien at Chilton! The children read through a playscript, picking out the key features before planning their own character lists, dialogue and plot. The children then wrote up their playscripts adding in stage directions. We also finished our class text ‘The Jamie Drake Equation’, which was thoroughly enjoyed by all. Next week, the children, both at school and at home, will be practising a range of writing skills across a series of big writes.

In Maths, the children have been looking at composite rectilinear shapes and how to find the perimeter and area of this shapes by splitting them into recognisable quadrilaterals. We then also worked on finding areas of a range of irregular shapes. Next week, the children will be looking at rounding and working with linear number sequences.

In Topic, we learnt about the shape of the Earth, Sun and Moon and how we ca prove that the Earth is (almost) spherical rather than flat. We competed a ‘Moonsaic’ to show the shape of the moon. We also completed scale model drawing of the planets of the solar system and compared their distances from the sun. Year 5 also enjoyed their class parties and Christmas dinners this week.

Home Learning:

There have been tow MyMaths tasks set on PERIMETER and AREA.
