Weekly News! 8.12.23
Year 5 have had another wonderful, fun-filled week of learning. Here's what we've been up to:
In English this week, we have continued to read through 'The Jamie Drake Equation' and are nearing the end. In our writing, we have continued our own Jamie Drake inspired alien narratives. We planned and wrote Chapter 2, which included a problem that our character had to overcome. We used dialogue with verbs and adverbs. Next week, we will be finishing our narratives and completing writing linked to Christmas.
In Maths this week, we have been using the four operations to solve world problems with measurements of volume and capacity. Next week, we will be looking at statistics.
In our afternoons this week, we completed our end of unit quiz to see what we retained over the term. We also began creating flags and crowns for next weeks Christmas production.
