Hawthorn returns…

What a fantastic start to Year 5!

I cannot believe how quickly this week has flown, in English, we have begun looking at portal stories with a focus on The lion, the witch and the wardrobe. We have been learning the text, before looking at its features and even getting ready to plan our own stories; after reading the plans, I must say I can’t wait to read them!

Maths has had the focus of place value, learning to read and write numbers up to 10,000 before comparing them. We have learnt to add 10, 100 and 1000s to these numbers, crossing boundaries.

Topic began with listing adjectives to describe the rainforest and listening to sounds of the rainforests. We have generated questions that we would like to learn about and are eager to find the answers to them!

Congratulations to:

Learner of the week- Lucas

Star of the week- Oliver

After such a positive start, I look forward to building on this next week whilst becoming fantastic learners and young people!
