Here is the link for Year 5 Curriculum Information:
Stars of the week: Constance & Fabian
In English, we have started reading The Curse of the Maya and Class 5 are already hooked! It is a gripping tale about two twins who follow their father on a work trip to Guatemala and discover a Maya temple. Next week, we are going to use it to inspire our own descriptive writing.
In Science this week, we had quite a few WOW moments, as we compared the size of the planets in our solar system and their distance to the sun.
Stars of the week: Sebastian & Christina
Well done to the whole of Class 5 for their first week back at school. They have shown maturity and diligence adopting the new school rules and settling back into old routines.
We did assessments this week and Class 5 showed great perseverance, dedication and effort. Another, huge well done!
This week we were also looking at the writer and artist, Charles Mackesy, and his stunning book “The Boy, the mole, the fox and the horse.’ Class 5 took inspiration from this book to come up with their own characters, positive phrases and illustrations.
We did our first fitness circuit in P.E. this week. Class 5 showed so much enthusiasm! They have recorded their scores and will now begin working on achieving a PB every week. From next week, we will be building football into these P.E. lessons too.
Next week in English, we are going to start exploring the text, “The Curse of the Maya” by Johnny Pearce. It is a gripping tale that will inspire our own fiction writing.
In Maths, we will be recapping and building on our place value knowledge by learning about numbers up to 100,000!
