'Winds of Change'
Welcome to our Spring Term topic which draws upon the history, literature and artwork associated with the Shang Dynasty.
Welcome to Year 5
Welcome to Year 5! After a very different year, we are over the moon to be welcoming you all back to school. We have lots of fun plans for this year, and are so excited to get stuck into our learning. Mr Napier and Mrs Duboisson are really looking forward to getting to know you, and I am delighted to be spending another year with you! There is a letter coming out this week (we will also upload it here) packed full of vital information, so please read it carefully, and let us know if you have any queries.
This term our topic is 'Earth, Space and Beyond'. In Science we will start off by studying Earth and the solar system. Soon our young scientists will aim to explore light and colour right across the spectrum! We have already begun to step back in time in a voyage of discovery with the ancient Maya civilisations and are digging deep in world of biographies.
Y5 have been exploring multiplication and division in a recent unit of work. They have completed two lessons with a particular focus on the rules of BODMAS. This has enabled the children to extend their learning further and challenge them!
The children wanted to explain how the BODMAS rules work and show examples of how to apply it during a lesson. Please click on the links below:
Have a go at these tasks at home, if you would like to.
The first task is the instructions for Hubbub, the traditional Native American game played by the Wampanoag people. Use the game pieces we made in school, you will just need to ask your grown ups for a bowl.
The second task is a talking activity, based on the recent achievements of Marcus Rashford.
