We have had a wonderful start to Year 5 so far! We have been settling into our new classroom routine and enjoying some time with our friends.
We have been concentrating on how we can show love and respect to those around us and have written our own prayers to reflect this.
In English, we have been focusing on using the correct grammar, punctuation and spelling within our writing. We wrote some wonderful diary entries in the role of Rosa Parks and enjoyed writing our own instructions on how to make cupcakes. The children thoroughly enjoyed following these instructions to make their own cakes in school! In Maths, we have been looking at place value, using the column method for addition and subtraction and solving word problems.
Year 5 have made me extremely proud so far when visiting Barton Athletic Club, where they have been taking part in workshops run by professional athletes specialising in wrestling, weight lifting and non-contact boxing. They have shown amazing control, concentration and respect which has been wonderful to see.
