Violet Class News

We have had another great week in Year 5 . This week we have focused on the story of Moses and the good Samaritan, the children did a brilliant job retelling these stories and explaining the messages portrayed. We have continued our work on place value in Maths, focusing on identifying the value of a digit in numbers up to 1 million. In small groups we applied our knowledge from the past two weeks to answer word problems. We began our Science topic-Space , the children enjoyed sharing their prior knowledge and we are looking forward to hearing their name suggestions for the exoplanet and star.

The children thoroughly enjoyed their session on the Life Education bus, they explored the concepts of making good decisions and how to care of their physical and mental well-being.

Have a lovely weekend.

This week has gone as quick as a lightning bolt! The vast Violet 3 worked wonders with their Autobiographies this week. Ensuring that they wrote in the past tense and first person, they brought their writing to life by using: alliteration, similes and adjectives to create an insightful glimpse into their lives. Each one providing an entertaining and enjoyable read.

In Maths this week, we have focused on ensuring that we have a solid understanding of place value, ordering and comparing large numbers and rounding numbers. Can you explain the rule we use when we round numbers to the nearest 10,100 and 1000?

We thoroughly enjoyed participating in Life Bus this week, thank you Miss Armstrong for organising this for us. Next week, we are really looking forward to our first Forest School of the year on Monday 16th September.
