Head Teachers Award:
This week in Year 5 we have been continuing to look at fractions in Maths and began to work on our problem solving. We have concentrated on converting mixed number to improper fractions (and vice versa), how to find a fraction of an amount and how to multiply mixed numbers by integers.
In English this week we have continued our work on Sci-Fi novels. We have gathered content on the book Aquila through the collection of phrases and vocabulary and developing out active reading strategies. Within our reading sessions we have been observing poetry and how language is used to convey emotions, settings and feelings and analysing this further.
Within our Topic sessions we have completed a range of activities from miracles in RE, gravity within our Science and how to use Newton Meters to measure force and also how to develop our basic skills in computing.
On Friday, we celebrated Red Nose Day! We created our own masks to show how we were superheroes and developed our understanding of what makes a 'superhero'. To complete the day we had a Red Nose Day quiz!
