Poems, graphs and outer space

In this section...

Year 5 have been becoming experts at reading timetables, tables and line graphs over the last two weeks in Maths, and I must say they have excelled! Some of us still need to practice our time-telling skills to make sure we are fully confident but I have been pleased to see the progress and confidence grow! Next week we will be starting multiplication and division, so get those times tables brains ready!

Our writing has been jumping off the page and creating images in our minds this week. Not literally, but figuratively speaking, as this has been our focus! We read Pie Corbett’s ‘Six Ways of Looking at the Moon’ poem and were inspired to write our own versions about another space-themed object using metaphors, similes and personification. We will be typing them up and displaying them ready for Read, Share, Review Day!

We started our new Science topic: Earth and Space and the children’s enthusiasm has been astonishing! We were amazed at just how big the universe is and how small we really are! We are currently researching the planets and have lots more to discover over the next few weeks! Our secret word is: raggedy.

The children looked fantastic today for Children in Need and entered into the spirit of it all in our assembly, in particular cheering on Abbie as she decorated Pudsey blindfolded! Well done Abbie!
