Our Year 5 classes are:
- Florence Class - Mrs Handy
- Rome Class - Miss Malm
The Spring Term has been extremely productive in both Rome and Florence Class.
In English, the children have been enjoying ready Cosmic by Frank Cottrell-Boyce. They have developed their persuasive writing skills by using modal verbs to show degrees of possibility and by planning a debate. They have also developed a greater understanding of how to write informal letters and diaries.
In Maths, the children have learnt how to multiply a 4-digit number by a 2-digit number using a formal method. More recently both classes have been working hard to convert improper fractions to mixed numbers and to complete sequences involving integers and fractions.
In Science, the children have been learning about forces and have completed a series of investigations. They have discovered the effects of gravity and how forces can be balanced or unbalanced. We have looked at the important historical figures that have influenced scientific discovery, including Isaac Newton and Galileo Galilei.
Florence class have visited the Planetarium to introduce our Space topic, and Rome class will visit after half term. We have learnt about the solar system, including how we know the Earth is a sphere and the order of the planets from the sun.
