Happy New Year! It has been wonderful to welcome the children back and hear all about their exiting Christmases. In Year 5, we have thrown ourselves back into our learning. In maths we are now focusing on mental calculation methods for multiplication and division, whilst in English we are now studying mystery and suspense.
Today in assembly we listened as the Year 6s spoke about the Magi visiting Jesus after his birth. In the classroom, we built on this learning to understand that this is one of 3 epiphanies that happen over the Christmas season. We considered what each epiphany teaches us about God and the incarnation.
Today, we concluded our Viking learning from last term by generating our own lines of enquiry and researching them. It has been fascinating to see what has taken the children’s interest about this time in British history.
