It has been another busy week of learning. In maths we have been using our place value knowledge to round numbers and solve problems. We have also been counting forwards and backwards across 0 using our knowledge of negative numbers.
In writing, Year 5 have been learning all about expanded noun phrases. They then used this knowledge to create some impressive introductions to their explorer guides. It was wonderful to see the children refer back to our previous poetry unit to use some fantastic vocabulary.
In R.E, we have been learning about the four sources of revelation and how we know God through them. This led to some interesting discussions about family traditions and our own human experiences. Year 5 also looked at Scripture to see how God is described and to understand the metaphors that are used.
I was particularly impressed with the children in drumming this week, as was our drumming teacher, Caz. They have learnt a range of rhythms very quickly and are practising performing in increasing complex rounds. Well done Year 5!
Have a wonderful weekend
