Year 5

Welcome to the Y5 page. We hope you find the information useful.

This term has been another very exciting (and tiring) term so far!

As part of our Ancient Egyptian topic, we went the the fantastic Discovery Centre. The children had a great morning seeing Egyptian artifacts and spending time in their warehouse.

In science, we tested a range of materials and their properties. The children had so much fun investigating their scientific enquiry questions.

We also started to learn how to play ukuleles. Ask your child what songs they can play! We used a blanket stitch to make some Egyptian jewellery.

This half term, we will be starting an exciting art project as well as continuing with the ukuleles.

Our children were a credit to the school on our trip - ask them what they learnt!

In Maths, we have been using place value counters charts to support our understanding of addition and subtraction. Ask your child to show you their fantastic knowledge!
