Knowledge-filled week in Year 5!

In English, we started plotting our coastal narrative. The children have loved coming up with their plots, adding mysterious islands that only appear during the high tide and deadly pirates patrolling the seas.

In Maths, we started revising and expanding our knowledge on multiplications and how to use the formal column method to calculate a product.

In STEM, we continued our unit on life cycles and we looked at the life cycles of insects and amphibians, creating detailed infographics on their different phases. We even looked a real life newts and tadpoles!

In Guided Reading, we continued reading about Noor’s life as the last radio operator in Paris.

As always, if you want to test your Spanish skills with some fun games, you can go here:
