We have had a fantastic start to the school year and our learning in Y5!
For our first Topic – ‘Prehistoric Britain’- we have enjoyed learning about life in the Stone Age, Bronze Age and Iron Age. We have been able to compare general life, the tools they would have used and the houses they would have lived in. In art we have been making our very own cave paintings!
In English we have been looking at ‘The Viewer’ by Gary Crew. We have been completing lots of exciting descriptive writing as well as a Newspaper report on the disappearance of Tristan.
In maths, our focus has been number and place value. We have been looking at the value of digits in numbers up to one million and how we can round these numbers to the nearest 10, 100, 1,000 and 10,000.
We are looking forward to our trip to Creswell Crags as well as starting swimming!
