Year 5 Weekly Blog (9. 11. 18)

Congratulations to our superstars this week: Tom, Joe and Peter. 

What a week of learning we have had this week. In history we have been learning all about the life of a child in a Victorian workhouse, researching facts and using our class novel as a starting point for how the children would have  felt. We then took inspiration from this to write as Jim Jarvis (the main character from "Street Child" in any way we chose -diary, letter, recount etc. We manged to get feelings, emotions and historicaliy accurate facts in our writing.

In PSHE and RE we looked at the meaning behind the poem "The Wound in Time" by the poet  laureate  Carol Ann Duffy, which has been written especially for the Danny Boyle event "Pages of the Sea" this Sunday on Armistice Day at Formby Beach. The children have all taken this poem home to share with you and to take to the beach if they wish.

In maths we have been looking at 4 digit by 1 digit multiplication and 2 digit by 2 digit multiplication and the various methods that can be used to solve these calculations. This week's maths homework (found under home learning) links directly to this.

We have also moved all the homework help sheets and weekly maths and spelling  sheets to the same place,our new home learning page, which can be found by clicking on the classes link, then home learning, then Y5, after requests by a few parents to make it easier to find. Thank you so much for the useful feedback.
