We had a super productive week in Year 5!
In English, we followed our detailed plans to create an amazing myth based on Norse mythology. The children really enjoyed editing and polishing their ideas, finishing their stories and publishing them with beautiful handwriting.
In Maths, we continued looking at place value and used number lines to round numbers up to 1,000,000. The children were brilliant, rising up to the task and enjoyed the challenges that this brought.
In STEM, the children experimented separating mixtures by using the methods of filtering, sieving and evaporation. They have also set up a fair test to retrieve salt crystals from a salt solution.
In Project, we found out about Anglo-Saxon religion and we learned about the burial site at Sutton Hoo. It was astonishing to see how many artefacts are buried with the king.
In Guided Reading, we started reading Beowulf and the Sea-Hag. The children greatly enjoyed imagining what a Wave-Lurker would look like and transferred their ideas onto paper, adding powerful adjectives to describe their creatures.
In PRE, we found out the differences between worshipping at home and at a temple.
- In Maths, we will start a new unit on negative numbers.
- Over the next few week, in English, we will be creating a poem based on the story on Beowulf.
