It has been great to welcome the children in to Year 5 over the past week. The children have settled in really well to life at the higher end of the school and have been working hard.
In English this term we will be working from our class text, Private Peaceful by Michael Morpurgo. We will be looking at causes and reasons for WW1, talking about how soldiers lived their lives in the war and discussing how loved ones back home dealt with the worry. We will be writing newspaper reports, letters, instructions and poetry.
In Maths there is a large focus on number and place value for the coming weeks, this is to ensure that children really have a solid basis to progress on to the more advanced Maths later in the year.
Our topic this term is Evolution and Inheritance and i'm sure the children could amaze you with some facts that they have learnt about Charles Darwin already.
It was lovely to see so many parents at Meet the teacher on Monday.
