Super week in Year 5
Another super week in Year 5 at WLPs! We are so busy yet again but are loving everything that we are doing in school.
In English, we are still looking at our book"There's a boy in the girls bathroom." Our writing has been focused around diary entries and formal letters. In both of these text types, children have had to put themselves in a character's shoes and we have been really impressed with their empathy towards others. Children have also used their diary writing skills in Science lessons, writing "It's a bird's life!" If you are ever in school, make sure that you check out our displays to view these fantastic pieces.
In Maths, extending our multiplication formal written methods has been key. All three teachers are so pleased with how hard children have worked in order to develop this skill and it is fantastic to be able to say that all children made great progress during this week. Practising times tables is essential in order to be able to move on, so if you have chance to do this at home we would be very grateful.
We also had our wow starter day for our new topic "living on the edge." We looked at typical American sports such as baseball, line dancing and cheerleading and also made some yummy pancakes. Children loved learning all of these new skills and are very excited to continue with our topic.
