Violet Class News

We have had another a jam-packed week in Year 5! Persuasive writing has been our focus in English. The children produced some fantastic letters, dazzling us with their use of emotive language and rhetorical questions to persuade their reader! Next week our main focus will be Poetry, the children will be bringing home poems to learn and recite. In Maths we have been rounding numbers to the nearest 10, 100, 1000 and 10,000, we will be tackling Roman Numerals next week. In RE we discussed Paul's letter to the Colossians and what it means to be a Holy Person. On Thursday, the children listened to in a very informative fire safety talk, can they share with you what they learnt?

Have a lovely weekend.

Hunting for tiny bugs and finding frogs were a few of the highlights from Forest School this week. We also learnt about food chains and food webs, it's fantastic being outdoors all afternoon!

There was much excitement in English this week because we started reading our class book The Unforgotten Coat by Frank Cottrell Boyce. We are finding the book very relatable because the children in the book are in Year 6. Using description, integrated dialogue, modal verbs and more description we wrote a diary entry from the perspective of Julie (she's the narrator). We can't wait to read more and see what happens!

In Maths this week we focused on short division, short multiplication and using rounding to estimate and solve questions quickly. We continued to explore the Circulatory System in Science, finding out facts about Veins, Arteries and drawing diagrams with a compass. Next week, we are looking forward to conducting a science experiment.

Have a restful weekend!
