Week Twenty-Seven. w/e: Friday 20th April 2018
Welcome back to the Summer Term of Year Five 2018!
It's been a superb but busy week...
It has now been revealed that our Summer topic is ~ the Vikings! On Tuesday, we had a special visitor who explained lots about the Vikings, including what they believed in and why. We also got the chance to look at some Viking armour and weapons. I can't wait to get stuck into this new topic!
On Friday, we had our class assembly to the whole school. We showed a wide range of work that we had created as part of our Brazil topic ~ from writing to parrot murals! All things that have been featured on this website, and can be found in the footer of this page and in our website archive.
This week, we have been looking at mechanisms and water/air resistance. On Friday, we spent half the day creating a mechanism...
And the other half creating a boat...
This week we have been looking at the story of Beowulf by Michael Morpurgo. On Monday, we brought in blankets and torches to add to the atmosphere when reading the story. We have also looked at using the semi-colon accurately and how writers engage their readers. Next week, we will be moving on to the monster's lair...
This week, we have been focusing on fractions ~ adding/subtracting fractions and finding fractions of amounts. These were two key year five areas and you put all your effort into them! Well done! We will be moving on to multiplying fractions next week.
