A very happy new year to you all!

We hope that you had a wonderful break and enjoyed the Christmas and new year festivities. It has been lovely listening to everything that the children got up to - they all seem to have had a great time.

On Monday, the children had the pleasure of having ‘Chris Gilbert – The Art and Soul Man’ teach them for the day. As an introduction to their new English topic for this half term, which is writing character and setting descriptions, the children designed their own imaginary worlds, as an illusion inside a shoebox. The children designed some wonderful creations, which they and we are ever so proud of.

In maths, the children have enjoyed learning about square and prime numbers as well as how to find common factors between two different numbers, including the highest and lowest common factor.

During their English sessions, Shipgate have been working together to explore and investigate how different authors introduce characters into their books. They then moved onto designing an ‘inside outside’ for their favourite character and writing a character description about them. As part of their SPaG lessons, they also revised how to use relative clauses in their writing.

In RE, the children started their new topic, which is exploring peace. Shipgate worked in their table teams to design posters explaining what peace meant to them.

As well as all of this, Shipgate have been busy learning about the following: how to ensure a business makes money during their enterprise session, how to design a well structured debate, which includes a proposition and opposition, and what being principled means and how to be a risk taker as part of their PSHE sessions.

Enjoy your weekend everyone,

They Year 5 Team.
