Year 5: An end to January
Friday 31st January | No comments yet
This week in literacy, we have been drawing our work on Beowulf to a close (though we may continue to look at the story in our guided reading sessions) with a piece of extended writing. The idea was to retell the story of the fight between Beowulf and Grendel, adding their own gruesome twists and turns. Miss Wetherill and I are really looking forward to reading through them!
In maths, both classes have been getting to grips with the bus stop method of division, building on the knowledge and skills learned in Year 4 and how this can be applied to real life contexts. Next week, we will be moving on to fractions so keep an eye out for any examples of everyday fractions!
We have also started to work on our stop-motion animation projects, with each group using their knowledge of the process to create their own unique animation. So far we have had some really promising results and we can’t wait to share the finished products with you!
We hope you enjoy your long weekend. As always, keep practising your spellings and times tables!
Miss Levett and Miss Wetherill
