Welcome to Year 5 and Team Sapphire
Your teacher is Ms Ellis
Your teaching assistant is Mrs Green
This week in Maths, we used bar models to help us find fractions of amounts and then solved some fraction word problems. In English, we will continued to read Monsterology, gathered some interesting vocabulary, and wrote some detailed sentences using multi-clauses. We also started to plan to write about our own beast.
In Science, we learnt about the force of gravity and how it affects our everyday lives on Earth. We also looked at the difference between mass and weight and investigated the mass and weight of different objects around the classroom. In History, we found out where the Vikings came from, when they arrived in Britain and why they came here. In RE, we learnt about the Jewish festival of Purim and the importance of the Story of Esther.
Next week in Maths we will be learning to multiply and divide numbers by 10, 100 and 1000 and in English we will be writing a report about our own beasts.
Have a lovely weekend!
This week is a Roll Over Week;
