This week Year 5 have written some creative and atmospheric poetry. They wrote one relating to the theme of 'fear' and the other focused on similes and had the theme of 'waiting'. Our book 'Pig Heart Boy' was the inspiration for both. In maths we explored negative numbers and Roman numerals - some very impressive work was produced. St Vincent de Paul was the focus of Year 5's RE this week. We read about his life and the amazing work of the St Vincent de Paul Society.

Year 5 have had a fantastic start back! It has been a real pleasure having them back in school so eager to learn!We have wasted no time getting stuck into Year 5 work. The children have responded brilliantly. Place value exploration in numbers up to 10,000 was the focus of our maths. In grammar we explored different types of nouns and in English we started our fascinating book ‘Pig Heart Boy’. In RE we started our new topic and the class created some very eye-catching artwork to compliment the written work they completed. Mrs Emmerson and Mrs Wiatr have started hearing each child read and we have also started our new class book 'The Firework Maker’s Daughter' by Phillip Pullman.
