Spring 2- Week 3

 

Well, after World Book Day last week, we thought that school couldn't possibly be any more exciting. How wrong were we?! Our lessons have been very inspiring this week- particularly our work in English. In topic, we have been learning about pyroclastic flows. Do you know the most famous pyroclastic flow of all time? Year 5 do!

 

In English, we looked at Treacher Collins Syndrome. This is a condition suffered by Auggie (the main character in "Wonder"). We were fascinated by how the syndrome occurs and how it affects people throughout their whole life. We then used this knowledge to create a double page spread information text. This was the best part as children were able to choose how they presented their work. The teachers would love to do this more often as publishing the work made the children feel so proud of themselves! Check out the photo to see how great the pieces were.

 

In Maths, we completed our final week on Fractions. It has been very enjoyable to use the hundred grid to help us convert between fractions, decimals and percentages. We also used these skills and applied them to word problems. Children need to know the FDP equivalences of 1/2, 1/4, 1/10, 1/5 and 1/3 so see if they can remember!

Next week, we will be moving on to our new topic of shape.
