This week, we completed our end of unit writing for our ‘Who am I?’ English topic. The children wrote descriptions of themselves and thought deeply about who they are. I was really impressed with the final outcome. Our maths learning has continued to focus on place value. We have added and subtracted 10, 100, 1000 and 10,000 from large numbers and worked on Roman numerals.
In Science this week, we have begun an investigation about the effect of mineral salts on the growth of plants. We have planted radishes with various amounts of mineral pellets and we will watch the impact of this over the next few weeks.
We braved the windy weather this afternoon and went outside to work on our chest pass technique with some throwing tennis.
We welcomed Fr Alex into school today and he led us in a mass. Year 5 behaved reverently throughout and Fr Alex was very impressed with their behaviour.
Wishing you a wonderful weekend.
Mathletics has been set as have activities on study ladder. Children should complete 10 readtheory tests and learn week 3 spellings.
