Another wonderful week in Year 5!
In English, we have started exploring the different types of sentences and investigating how to use them inside a larger piece of text, which will culminate in an information text about volcanoes.
In Maths, we have explored mental methods and when to use them, trying to use our mathematical knowledge to decide whether a calculation needed to be solved with a written or mental method.
In STEM, we have started learning about climate change and we explore the concepts of environmental degradation and sustainability. The children had a great time researching ways to reduce the waste of electricity and have come up with some amazing ideas for sustainable practices!
In Guided Reading, we have started our new book, Malamander, the tale of an eerie coastal town with a mysterious secret.
In Spanish, we have continued looking at houses, please follow this link for an awesome quiz if you want to test your knowledge! https://quizizz.com/join/quiz/65437cc11e61600d7f28ba38/start?from=admin
Additionally, a big thank you to everyone, and especially to our volunteers, for the Anglo-Saxon day. It was a great success and the children have really enjoyed exploring the historical crafts and stepping into their Anglo-Saxon persona.
