Year 5

Welcome to Year 5! What a super time we are having in Year 5 with so much going on and so much to do and learn. We have lots of people to help support us with our learning in Year 5. Miss Anderton is our main teacher and Mrs Miles teaches us on Thursday afternoons. We also have lots of other adults helping in class including Miss Bryant during Literacy and Mrs Whiting and Mrs Fry during Maths!

Term 1 – Wow! Class 5 have had an amazing start to the Autumn term. I am so proud of their achievements, and they should be too. In Literacy, we have learnt about Voyage and Return stories and read The Firework Makers Daughter. Then we planned, wrote and published our own and shared them with Class 6.

In maths we learnt how to use place value to add and subtract numbers up to one million! This week we did our first Inquiry maths lesson of the year and are starting to explore the new mathematical vocabulary so we can explain our reasoning clearly.

In other learning we have tried Chinese food, learnt how to do some Chinese dancing and have planned and designed a Chinese mural for our hut, which we are very excited about as we will soon start painting.  Next term we will be learning about multiplication and division, writing poetry and building a Chinese Dragon!
