Welcome to the Year 5 Blog! 

Autumn 2 - Week 1&2


We've had a busy fortnight back at school. We began the term with open parliament week where we learnt about how parliament works and wrote our own versions of the king's speech. We came up with so many mature, thoughtful and kind ideas to improve the country. 


In maths, we've been learning about negative numbers and played battleships to practice plotting 3D co-ordinates on a graph. 


We've also enjoyed learning about vector drawings which are drawings done on a computer using shapes. We were brilliant at creating our names out of shapes. 

Autumn 1- Week 7


We've had a busy week to finish off the half term! We've enjoyed bringing our Amazon rainforest topic to life by making acai berry smoothies and creating 3D rainforest boxes.

Autumn 1 - Week 5&6


In our English lessons, we've been busy writing the next chapter of our class text 'The Explorer'. We've worked hard to come up with creative vocabulary and accurate speech punctuation. Have a read of a snippet below! In maths, we've been working hard on rounding numbers and in science we've been experimenting to see whether changes to materials are reversible or irreversible. 

Autumn 1 - Week 3&4


As part of our English lessons where we've been reading 'The Explorer', we visited the forest school to gather materials to make mini rafts. This helped us get into the minds of the characters in the story. Our PE topic this half term is gymnastics - we are learning different partner balances and have practiced putting them into a sequence. 

Autumn 1 - Week 1&2


Year 5 have settled into brilliantly to a new school year! Our first few weeks have been filled with lots of exciting things like finding out how much maths we can get from a box of smarties and practical science lessons where we've investigated the properties of materials. 

Welcome back! I hope you've all had a wonderful summer and are excited to begin a new school year in Year 5. I am so excited to welcome you back and help you settle in. We have got lots of exciting things planned and some brilliant topics that we are going to be learning about this half term.
