This week in year 5, the children have enjoyed learning about allotments, and writing their non-chronological reports about them. Children practised using a range of punctuation, and using relative clauses to give extra information about fruits and vegetables.
In Maths, the children have continued to add and subtract fractions with different denominators. They have also learnt how to multiply unit fractions.
In Reading, children practised summarising a factual text, retrieving information, and predicting at the point of reading. For World Book day, both classes enjoyed snuggling up with their class books, as well as making posters to persuade other children to read our favourite books. These will soon be proudly adorning the walls of the Book Corners in the classroom for all to see!
In RE, children explored the ideas of wrongdoing and sinning, and repenting for bad choices.
In PSHE/RSE, we have been thinking about ‘pressure’, such as peer pressure and stress. We have discussed strategies to help children to identify and cope with pressure.
In spellings, we have been looking at how morphemes can be added on to root words to create new words and new meanings, all with a common root. The words in this week’s spelling list below can be made up of morphemes – ask your child to try and identify all the morphemes in the word in order to help them learn!
We hope you all enjoy your weekends.
