Dear parents and carers,
We enjoyed finishing off our work on "Here We Are" this week, and sharing the work with the rest of the school in a special assembly. It was great to see what everyone else had done across the year groups. What a special book this was to start the year with!
In our English lessons this week we have started looking at a lovely book called "Float", by Daniel Miyares. This is a wordless picture book, and tells the story of a young boy who makes a paper boat and takes it out into a rainstorm. The children have learned to make their own paper boats, and also practised their inference and deduction skills when looking at the beautiful illustrations. We've started writing our own sentences about the story, using skills such as repetition and onomatopoeia. We'll be continuing with this work next week.
In maths we started with a bit of time spent having a go at some place value work independently, so that I can start to really suss out where the class are and what they need to work on. For the rest of the week we have started with some recapping of basic place value work and rounding. This covers some year 4 work, but is really vital to make sure that I am not building on shakey foundations! We'll be continuing with our work on place value next week.
Please remember that details of the homework can be found on Google Classroom. It's pretty simple though:
Doing these activities at home will really help me to teach your children in school, and will help them make the best of their year 5 with me.
