One Childhood, One Chance

Friday 4th February 2022

Well done to Year 5 for another wonderful week. We loved all of your amazing Number Day outfits.


In English this week, we have started reading Tennyson's classic poem, 'The Lady of Shalott'. We have been focused on figurative language and started the week with some artwork showing Shalott before writing a setting description before moving on and planning and writing a character description of the Lady, after reading part two of the story. Next week, we will be writing a letter from the Lady to Sir Lancelot.


In Maths this week, we have been continuing to look at fractions. We focused on converting improper fractions to mixed numbers and vice versa before moving on to multiplying fractions. Next week, we will work on simplifying fractions and scaling up and down to solve problems. We also enjoyed a wonderful Number Day we we played TTRS, Who Wants to be a Mathionnaire?, a range of other Maths games and completed a range of fun Maths activities.


In Topic this week, we have moved on to creating our squares for our class blankets. After designing them last week, we sewed them this week. We practised how to sew a running stitch on Monday then used these skills through the rest of the week to stitch felt designs we have made onto our felt squares. Next week, we will be looking at the Science part of our Material World topic as well as focusing on Online Safety for PSHE.
