Spring 1:

We have had an another strange but great half term in year 5! Please take a look below at what we have been up to!

This term we’ve been focusing on a text by Shaun Tan called ‘The Lost Thing’. We have been focusing on inner thoughts of characters by developing complex sentences along with co-ordinating and subordinate clauses.
For Maths we have been concentrating on our Decimals – we have started off with revising place value, and have been looking at the various methods of addition and subtraction, along with looking at the relationship between fractions and decimals.

In Science we have been focusing on life sciences – we have been investigating pregnancy and life cycles of various types of animals and will be taking an in-depth look at the role of a midwife.

Our MFL topic has moved onto talking about going on journeys and the things we like to do whilst travelling. 

In computing this term, Year 5 have been learning all about how to use a search egine effectively, using advanced tools and focusing on specific key words.
