Our Weslandia learning came to an end this week with the writing of our newspaper reports. The children recounted the story well in a journalist style and used new grammar aspects. I have added the challenge of using dialogue in their spellings this week to practise the punctuation required.
In maths we have focused on mental strategies for multiplication and division. We have learnt how to manipulate the numbers we use to make them easier to work with.
Our R.E learning has now begun to focus on the season of advent. With their knowledge of Luke as a gospel writer, year 5 considered the importance of Mary and John in the advent readings.
Today, we had a visit from Fitter Futures. The children were asked to create their own exercise that was then recorded for a Year 5 workout. This has been uploaded today and should be available for the children right away. New passwords for the site have been issued and given out today. I hope you enjoy working out as a family!
Have a wonderful weekend.
Mrs Lines and Miss Clapp
