This week has been a very busy week! Walliams class have worked incredibly hard and shown great resilience.


In English, the class have been learning from the story, 'The Inventions of Hugo Cabret.' They completed a shared write of a diary entry from the perspective of the toy maker who was an old man. This then led onto the children completing an independent write from the perspective of Hugo. They had to show that they could use a range of Year 5 English skills such as a variety of sentence openers, Year 5/6 spellings and correct tense and perspective. 



In Maths, the children have been learning about fractions. Over the past few weeks, they have shown that they can find equivalent fractions, convert mixed number to improper fractions and vice versa as well as using the appropriate terminology linked to this area of Maths.


Over time, they have used these skills to complete a range of reasoning and problem solving question as well as arithmetic questions.



Thank you to the children for their kind donations of chocolate and eggs for the Easter tombola. 

As well as this, some children have made Easter scenes and bonnets which are currently on display in the hall. Well done to all for your hard work.




All children to continue learning their times tables and please use Oxford Owl website to continue reading over the Easter holiday.
