Year 5 – 13/01/22

Happy New Year and welcome back! On Monday, we celebrated the Feast of the Epiphany that took place last Friday. The children made crowns fit for a king and reflected on what gifts they will bring to the world this year. In our RE lessons, we learned what the word ‘epiphany’ actually means and recognised that there are in fact three epiphanies of Jesus.


In Maths, we have been learning and practising the formal written method for addition and subtraction, and in PE we began our gymnastics unit. In Science, we started making spinners in order to investigate the effect that surface area has on a falling object.

It has been a lovely week and a great start to the new term!

Have a great weekend and see you on Monday 😊
