5 Hazel have been working incredibly hard since the start of term 6. So far we have learnt how to write a newspaper report. For our focus we decided to use the general election - this stirred up quite a debate. We even held our own little election to see which was the most popular party in year 5. The Labour party came out as the overall winners but the Green party and the Liberal Democrats were also popular.
Today we held our annual Sports Day. Everyone involved competed really well in each sport and encouraged each other to the end. Well done to all the sprinters who represented their classes. 5 Hazel was particularly proud of Macey who won the year 5 girls race.
Next week, we'll be continuing our focus on report writing as well as converting between imperial and metric units of measurement.
Hello and welcome back to the final term of the year! What a year we have had, we can't wait to put in our final push before the summer.
This term is a geographical based topic focusing on the question - 'What makes a wonder of the world?'
For this, we will be exploring the different wonders around the world including those from the original list and the modern world. Furthermore, we will be exploring the differences between natural and man made. The children will be using their understanding of history to explore when the modern wonders were built.
In literacy, the children will be exploring newspaper reports. For this, we have made up a story about the Taj Mahal being vandalised by Banksy. We've tried our best to write a newspaper report from scratch. We will be spending the next few weeks looking at the organisational features of a newspaper report and how to be more dramatic in our writing.
In maths, we'll be working hard to build on our understanding of the key objectives for year 5 maths. This includes place value, addition, subtraction, division, multiplication and fractions.
