Year 5 9/03/18
This week, we have been enjoying the warmer weather and were finally able to wear our World Book day costumes! The children looked great and got really involved in the learning. We focused on characters by role playing, writing descriptions and making top trumps.
In English, we have continued our class text about Odysseus. We created drama to help us write rich dialogue and improved our comprehension through performance reading. We are developing a much better understanding of our hero by identifying his strengths and weaknesses.
In maths, we have continued our learning on fractions. We have been adding, subtracting and multiplying them, as well as evaluating the effectiveness of strategies for doing so.
Today we listened to a fantastic assembly by year 6 about fair trade. During fair trade fortnight, it is important to remind ourselves of its life changing impact. The children were insightful when debating how profits of bananas should be shared. It was also wonderful to see them linking their understanding to Lent.
Well done to the chess team for their efforts at the competition this week. Francesco, Alessandro, Thomas, Anthony and Toju represented the school brilliantly and were only 1 point from a medal.
I would like to take the opportunity to thank all parents for your continued support. It was fantastic to meet with you all to celebrate your child’s successes and discuss ways of improving further.
Have a great weekend,

I really enjoyed dressing up for world book day!
