Autumn Term Update:
The first term has been a busy one in year 5, both Rome and Florence class have all adjusted to Upper KS2 well and have enjoyed learning about the Italian cities they are named after and producing an eye-catching display.
In reading and English, the children have thoroughly enjoyed the text ‘Wonder’ by R.J Palacio and have used their inference skills to explore feelings and emotions of the central characters. They have produced some imaginative poetry as part of National Poetry Day.
In Maths, the pupils have been counting forwards or backwards in steps of powers of 10 for any given number up to 1,000,000. They have also been learning how to Interpret negative numbers in context, count forwards and backwards with positive and negative whole numbers, including through 0. The children have been working hard on their reasoning and problem-solving skills.
In IPC the children have further explored feelings as part of their topic ‘Express Yourself’. In Art, they have had the opportunity to work alongside local artists; in Science they have learnt about the how the brain is responsible for their thoughts and feelings; and in PE have practiced Yoga and Meditation.
