Let`s find out what Year 5 have been up to

1.  In Year 5, our IPC and Science topics are both 'Space'. This week, the children have been finding out about the movement of the planets around the sun, the moon around the Earth and also investigating the apparent movement of the sun throughout the day, by measuring shadows.
2. In Literacy, we are reading the novel 'Charlotte's Web' by E.B.White, with much of our writing and grammar based around this book. The children have been writing letters and diary entries from the point of view of different characters, answering comprehension questions on what they have read and drawing story maps to illustrate the progression of the story.
3. The children are extremely motivated to read this book, in class and at home, as well as enjoying their own books during quiet reading time after lunch each day.
4. In Maths, we have been revising division and multiplication, both written and orally. The children are learning new written methods to enhance their knowledge and speed of working out, as well as taking a timed times table test each week to improve the speed of their rapid recall. This week, we have also started looking at problems involving time. They have been converting between 24-hour, 12-hour and analogue clocks, and using this knowledge to answer questions using timetables.
