Literacy - This week welcomed our class reader - War Horse by Michael Morpurgo. We were introduced to the main characters of the story Joey and Albert. We investigated the sentence structure used by Michael Morpurgo and wrote our own simple, compound and complex sentences.
Maths - We have practiced reading and writing (both in digits and words) 7 digit numbers. Sometimes reading a 7 digit number out loud can be a real mouthful! We have used < (less than) and > (greater than) to create number sentences. Finally we have applied our knowledge of rounding numbers to the nearest 10, 100, 1000, 100000, 100000 and 1000000 using practical situations!
- We were welcomed to our topic "Frozen Kingdom." We studied the similarities and differences of the two poles (Antarctic and Arctic).
- In Spanish we learnt about the weather (el tiempo). This week has brought us la lluvia (rain), la nube (cloud) and some el sol (sunshine). We hope for plenty of el sol next week!
This week in class 5 we were introduced to the concept of Unconditional Love in our RE unit called Loving. The root of unconditional love is understanding and forgiveness. The greatest and ultimate example of this type of love is Jesus Christ.
Welcome to class 5! We aim to be the very best we can be, celebrate our successes and learn from our mistakes. We loving learning and believe in a growth mindset.
During our first week in class 5 we discussed the benefits of a growth mindset and how it will help to strive to reach our ambitions both in and out of school.
