WB 18.9.23

As promised, the year 5s produced some excellent writing this week. Here are a few examples:


In R.E. we looked at what a Philosopher is and what Philosophy is and produced some lovely mind maps:


The children took part in a Speed Awareness day, where they went up to the main road with a police officer and monitored the speed of the cars. We are pleased to report that the drivers of Loughton were on their best behaviour today! The children only had to stop three drivers but really enjoyed engaging with them.

WB 11.9.23

The children have settled really well back into school and seem ready for the challenges of Year 5. Their behaviour has been impeccable so far and they should be really proud of themselves.



In Maths for the first 4 weeks, we are really concentrating on place value as we did in Year 4, however this year we will be exploring numbers all the way to 1,000,000. We will look at reading and writing numbers, the place value of each digit and rounding numbers as well as calculating 10 more, 100 more and 1000 more.



Our English theme for the first half term is Harry Potter. We will be basing all of our English on the first book, The Philosopher's Stone, including our reading lessons. children will be planning and writing a new chapter and writing a description in the forthcoming week. We look forward to reading the children's work and putting some examples on the website next week.



In Science, we are investigating materials this half term and we began these lessons with an investigation about dissolving which the children were all able to take an active part in.
