Another week has flown by in Year 5. It was wonderful to speak to so many of you during Parent Consultations and talk about how the children are settling back into school. If you did not manage to get an appointment, please contact the school office so that we can arrange a telephone consultation.
We have begun writing our river stories this week. Our focus has been on dialogue punctuation, paragraphing and setting description. The children have worked hard to produce engaging stories and have improved their editing skills. I look forward to seeing the end result next week. In maths, we have progressed in our place value to understand decimals. The children have enjoyed reading and writing them, as well as regrouping them in different ways.
Archipelagos were our focus in Geography this week. Our current study of volcanoes has taken us to Iceland, and more specifically, the Westman Islands. Being an archipelago, we investigated where else in Europe they could be found. Next week, it is One World Week. To fit in with our current unit, we will be studying Iceland.
Have a wonderful weekend
