Year 5 - Morpurgo

Welcome to our class page for Morpurgo!


Star of the Week

Kady for her excellent effort in her extended writing!


Head teacher’s Award

Jacob for having a fantastic attitude towards his work!
















In English this week the children have completed the Hybrid unit looking at the Amazon! The children have all worked incredibly hard to create a magazine page which will be filled with a range of non-fiction texts about The Amazon. The children have been focusing on using relative clauses in their sentences and they have done a fabulous job!


In Maths the children have worked super hard. They have continued to look at fractions, decimals and percentages. The children have been investigating percentages this week whilst continuing to convert fractions to decimals! They have been working brilliantly on this and I am very proud of them.


The children are continuing to attend the swimming pool each Tuesday. They continue to behave amazingly and make lots of progress with their swimming! Well done Morpurgo!
