Year 5 worked super hard this past week, finishing off a lot of our current topics.
The children have made some FABULOUS humorous letters for their writing and some have even started looking at our next writing topic of cracking contraptions. In our next writing topic, the children will design and write about a Wallace & Gromit inspired contraption that they will then pitch to Chagford Primary's Dragon's Den - a panel of Miss Simpson, Miss Armstrong, Mrs Ramoutar and Mr Finch.
In maths, we have nearly worked our way through our shapes topic. This week, the children have been looking at angles, identifying and calculating them on lines and shapes. After that, we will move on to position and direction.
We have finished our topic on the Middle East with a lesson on the Ottoman Empire. After the break, we'll be moving on to our final geography topic of energy and sustainability. We are wrapping up our science topic of humans and animals over time. After the break, we will be creating a balanced argument about the impact of humans on the world and the animals in it before we move on to reproductive cycles for our final topic.
This week in spelling, everyone created their own personalised spelling list. They all picked 15 words from our statutory words so far and have been practicing them all week. When we get back after the half term, they will work in pairs to test those spellings. Lists went home on Tuesday but you can also find them below just in case.
