Learning and Achieving Together


Welcome to Year 5 and Team Sapphire

Your Class teacher is Ms Ellis.

Your Teaching Assistant is Miss Allwork.


This week, in maths, we used known times tables number facts to help us solve other mental calculations. In English, we read a short book called Mufaro’s Beautiful Daughters, which is a traditional African tale, and compared it to the story of Cinderella. We looked at which features of traditional stories they had in common and how they were different.


Next week in maths we will be revising our division skills and in English we will be writing our own version of a traditional tale set in a different culture. We will develop our use of vocabulary and use a range of punctuation.
