Year 5 have had a wonderful start to their summer term and have really been showing off their learning powers throughout all of their lessons.
In science, the children have been learning about the life cycles of different animals and plants, and even had a chance to dissect a narcissus to see the different parts that make it function.
The children have also been focusing on their writing this week, as in their Literacy lessons they were learning how to use dialogue to advance the action and they all did a brilliant job! This will really help them next week, when they will be writing their own version of the text we are studying.
Not only did the children use their writing skills in Literacy, but they capitalised on their knowledge and used them in our thematic lessons, where they wrote a diary entry as a prisoner from the Stuart period, who got transported to Australia. If you’re not sure what that means, make sure you ask the children as they have a great understanding of this!
Finally, in our RE lessons, we have began our new unit about Judaism by learning the key information of this ancient religion. As you can see from one of the photos, the children have also started to plan for their learning by thinking through the resources they will need and any obstacles that may stand in their way. The teachers have noticed what a positive impact this has had on the children’s learning, as it has really focused them and made them want to achieve their best. Well done Y5!
We are so proud of the children, they have settled back into school after the Easter break really well and we can’t wait to see their progress over the next few weeks 🙂
