We have had a fantastic first week in Year 5, the children have all come in with a brilliant attitude towards their learning; focused and on task with all activities.
Our topic this ½ term focuses on ‘Space’. Already, we have made a pocket solar system which involved more folds on a strip of paper than I knew were possible! We have also all produced a pastel picture of a planet.
For English, we have focused on writing recounts and in Maths we have been looking at place value in larger numbers up to a million.
From next week we will be setting the children homework, although after a busy first week I feel it is important the children rest and relax so they are ready for next week. More information on the structure of homework will go out next week. However, please ensure your child does continue with their reading over the weekend. I have also asked them to find out an interesting fact to tell me next week about Space.
Have a lovely weekend,
