In Year 5 we have been looking at keeping healthy and making healthy food choices for our 5-a-day. We will be learning how to prepare vegetables, fruit and salad. The children have been thinking of ideas to encourage friendship and kindness around school, especially at playtime. We also had a class assembly where Year 5 showed good and bad scenarios of how to deal with bullying. In addition to this, we have learned how to be part of a successful debate.

For our first Summer term our topic was Time Traveller.


In English we have been writing a time travel adventure story about our past or our future.  We also wrote a description of a character from the past.  Our Class Reading Book was "Tom's Midnight Garden".


In Maths we have added and subtracted whole and decimal numbers.  We have also solved problems with numbers up to three decimal places.


In Science we have been investigating how to tell the time without a clock.  We also looked at the life cycle of a plant and we compared our daily life with that of an older person.  For Art and Design we created multi media collages of our hopes and dreams for the future.  We also drew self-portraits of the present and our future selves.  For French we  learned the names of different places in town.  In ICT we used Paint to draw a portrait of our partners and we researched how life has changed since 1900.


We have been trying really hard to win The Biggest Potato Competition.  Watch this space!


Next term we are looking forward to exploring Alchemy Island!  We have also got Sports Day to look forward to, as well as lots of fun and activities in our last half term.
