Welcome to Year 5
This term, Year 5 have been focusing on many exciting topics across a range subject areas including PE, PSHE and Music.
In history, we have been looking at The Ancient Egyptians. We focused on Tutankhamen and the ancient tombs discovered by archaeologists. We looked at key events in his life discovering that he became a pharaoh at a very age and sadly died by the age of 18 years old. In geography, we focused on travel. We looked at disadvantages and advantages of types of transport. We also have had a very active term taking part in swimming and rugby.
Maths this term, we revised the four key operations addition, subtraction, multiplication and division. The children have explored linking fractions to their visual representations, simplifying fractions, adding and subtracting them noting when they have the same denominator and when they do not.
In English, we have been learning about fronted adverbials, sentence structures and effective use of verbs. The children have created short narratives about different journeys. They have focused on creating tension and excitement through their use of techniques to grip the reader.
We have also been part of the Mini Police project this term and look forward to graduating in July.
