This week, the children have really impressed me with their amazing writing in our English lessons.
The display, which includes some of their writing, also looks wonderful too! Well done Year 5.
In English, we will be looking at writing to discuss and trying to answer the question, ‘Is it right that we use the rainforest for its resources?’In this piece of work, the children will be able to include all of their knowledge and learning from our rainforest topic work. I’m looking forward to it!
Maths will focus on addition and subtraction. The children will be looking at both the mental and written methods for these operations.
Topic work will look at answering the learning question ‘Why is Brazil in the news again?’
A date for your diary for next week is Thursday 5th of October when we will be holding our Harvest celebration in Church. It starts at 9am and you are more than welcome to join us.
In English today, we all had a little lie down! It was all to help us imagine just what it might be like to be within the Amazon Rainforest!
As the starting point for our descriptive writing, we listened to the sounds of the rainforest and imagined what we could see, hear, touch and also what we might feel lying there in the humid, tropical rainforest.
We couldn’t wait to get writing from our ‘lying down’ perspective!
We hope to share some of our writing with you as soon as it’s finished, so watch this space…
Hazel visited us in our assembly today to tell us all about ‘The Daily Mile’.
Our school will be completing 15 minutes of exercise where we will aim to do 2500 steps (which is roughy a mile).
By doing these extra steps, not only will our bodies will become stronger, fitter, faster and healthier, but it will also help our concentration and ability to learn.
We can’t wait to get started!
English will continue to focus upon writing effective multi-sensory setting descriptions.
In Maths, we will be looking at number and calculations.
Topic work will finish looking at rainforest locations and thinking about their organisation.
We couldn’t wait to canoe today!
