We have been busy in year 5 since the Christmas break!

In maths, we have been working on fractions and decimals, measuring and drawing different angles, making some 3D shapes from nets, collecting data in a class survey and learning how the Romans used Roman numerals to count up in to the thousands.

In English we have used our imaginations to write some great adaptation of well-known traditional tales. We could chose whether to change ‘Goldilocks’, ‘The Three Little Pigs’ or ‘The Gingerbread Man’ and we came up with our own versions which we then went to read to the children in year 1 who loved our stories!

We have also done some work on play scripts and drama, which linked in nicely with our exciting visit from Ian who spent an hour with our classes helping us to understand how the Romans would have lived, through a series of drama activities.

Our Romans topic has been interesting and the children have all been surprised at many of the things that the Romans brought to our country. Many were surprised to hear that the Romans weren’t just about soldiers and invasions, but were very sensible and cultured people!

We have been able to enjoy lots of other learning opportunities too, such as our Forest Schools sessions in the wildlife area (making kites, identifying trees, building shelters, learning about conservation etc.)

We started term 4 with MADD week where we cover a range of different Music Art Dance and Drama activities. In year 5 we have been learning about New Orleans in the USA. We have looked at its history with Jazz music, its cultural diversity and the colourful arts and festivals for which it is well known.
