This week in maths we have been counting in fractions and decimals. We have also started solving addition and subtraction questions containing decimals. Well done Class 5 for your incredible hard-work and willingness to challenge yourselves.
In Extended writing, we published our autobiographies – they will be great to reflect on in the years to come.
We have been consolidating our spanish learning about the cafe this week. Class 5 did a survery, asking each other ‘¿qué quieres desayunar?’. This means ‘what would you like for breakfast?’.

On Friday last week, Class 5 were part of the whole-school hedge plant. Well done Class 5 for being such considerate gardeners.
In English this week, we have continued our learning around The Silver Sword. Class 5 have taken on the role of Bronia, the youngest child, and written a diary as her. They have tried to include all the grammatical features we have been focusing on.
In Maths we have been exploring percentages. Class 5 have shown immense dedication to this learning. We will continue exploring decimals next week, where we will be adding and subtracting them.

Class 5 have been busy this week learning about decimals, fractions and percentages in maths. They have been converting between the three and solving problems related to them.
In Science, Class 5 planned and discussed investigations that they wanted to carry out. They worked incredible well as scientist to think of their patter-spotting question and the method they would need to investigate it.
In PE, Class 5 performed their hip-hop dances. Zoe and I were blown away by their team work, co-ordination and enthusiasm. Here are some screen shots of their performances:

Well done Class 5 for a brilliant return back after the Easter break. You have come back with so much enthusiasm for your learning. We have started a gripping new book in English called “The Silver Sword”. It has helped us to engage with lots of grammar – including complex and compound sentences, subordinating and co-ordinating conjunctions and the use of relative clauses and pronouns. I am SO proud of you Class 5 for all your hard work. Next week we will continue exploring this book.
In maths we have been learning about decimals. We have been understanding their place value and rounding them. I have been blown away by their efforts. Next week, we will be comparing and ordering decimals. In addition, we will be bringing in percentages.
It was World Earth Day on Thursday and Class 5 spent some time preparing the ground for our new school hedge to be grown next week.
Stars of the week: All of Class 5
It has been absolutely magnificent back in class again this week. Class 5 have returned with buckets of enthusiasm and energy for their learning. It has also been very uplifting seeing friendships reunited.
We have been re-capping fractions in maths this week. Class 5 put in a great deal of effort with fractions over lock-down and we are now building their confidence further in class. Next week we will be reviewing the written methods for multiplication and division.
In art we continued our learning about North American pottery and started practising the coiling method with clay.
In geography, we were exploring the location of rainforests.
Next week is Bikeability! Please remember to bring P.E. kits to school on Monday and your bikes/helmets (if you have them). Between cycling sessions, we will be continuing our biome projects and Miss Campbell will be working through the maths in small groups.

We have had a fantastic final week of term; full of festivities and treats. Some highlights were…publishing our winter poems, christmas code-breaking in maths, watching our Christmas performance (which was phenomenal!), watching the rest of the schools carols and performances (also phenomenal!), taking part in ‘Miss Campbell’s Christmas quiz’ and having a Disney film and treats, courtesy of the Friends of Cathedral School. Wow, what a week!
Well done Class 5 on an incredible term of learning. I am so proud of you all.
