Welcome to the first Year 5 News! It’s hard to believe we are already into the third week of term. The children have been working really hard and it has been wonderful getting to know them all.
Our first week was all focused on being ready to learn and classroom routines. Last week we started our Autumn 1 topic, ‘Making the Modern World’. The children started off with a challenge to work as part of team to create a container for a lego model. These were then dropped from the top of the stairs and we looked to see which were best protected! In Science we have been looking at materials and have been carrying out various experiments to test different properties.
We have been enjoying ‘The Iron Man’ by Ted Hughes in English and have been developing our descriptive writing. Our maths has started with learning about number and lots of the children are reading, writing and ordering numbers up to 1000000.
