Our Diverse Planet

During maths this week, Shipgate have been using fractions as operators, using decimals up to 2 decimal places and have even been looking at decimal and fraction equivalents!

Within literacy, the children have comprehended the model text through answering a variety of questions about each paragraph. They have also created their letter plans ready for their write up next week where the children are going to write a letter to father through the eyes of Hansel. The children have also been creating noun phrases within the context of Hansel and Gretel.

As you may know, this week is ‘British Science Week’. Due to this, the children have been looking at the new focuses of scientists for the year 2020. The children learnt all about the diversity of our planet and its species and even went on to research new discoveries within science over the past couple of years- we found some very interesting animals!

Topic work has allowed the children to learn more about the Early Islamic Civilisation. Shipgate have been learning about the role of Baghdad within this time in history.

We hope you have a lovely weekend,

The Year 5 team.
