In English this week, the children have put together everything they have learnt about setting descriptions. They have carefully planned and written their own, based on an illustration from the book FArTHER. It was so great to see the children really thinking about their choice of vocabulary and how this would create an image for the reader!
In Maths, the children have begun exploring division. They have worked tirelessly to perfect the short written method of division – well done Year 5!
In Topic, the children have been exploring lines of latitude and longitude. They used maps and atlases to locate some key cities across the UK using these coordinates!
In Forest Schools, Hawthorn Class had a lesson on how to use garden loppers safely. They enjoyed each having a chance to cut branches of various sizes using their new skills.
