It has been a busy start since coming back for Class 5 and all the children have come back with a good attitude to learning which has been pleasing to see.
In maths we have been focusing on fractions. This has proven to be quite a tricky start but the children have been trying exceptionally hard. If at home we could focus on times tables and applying these to be able to add, subtract and simplify fractions that would be fantastic. In English we have been letter writing both informally and formally which the children have enjoyed and produced some really good pieces of work. Also last week we started our History topic on ” The Ancient Maya”. I was really impressed with the timelines and the link s the children made to other civilisations. Finally, in Science we have started to classify animals using a classification key before moving onto looking at Carl Linnaeus which is a topic all children find interesting.
Please keep an eye out in the coming weeks for phots of what we are up to. Any comments please feel free to email me.
