Welcome back to the Spring Term. The class have made a great start in their learning.
In Maths, we have been focusing on adding and subtracting fractions with the same denominators and with whole numbers greater than one.
Instead of English, we have been having a focus on RE, learning and understanding about Christianity. We began by focusing on the main beliefs of Christianity, explored different text types in the Bible and looked at how stories are used in the Bible to teach lessons - parables.
PSHE this week is the last lesson in our unit on families and relationships. The focus has been on bullying. What might lead someone to bully others? How might someone who is being bullied feel? Who can you talk to if you are worried about bullying? The children looked at different scenarios and classified these as different types of bullying. We then discussed a case study of a bully and we had an interesting discussion about the choices the bully made and why.

Today in Year 5, we continued our work on place value and comparing numbers. Mr Barnett led us in our daily exercise where he, along with the daily exercise helpers, modelled some new and exciting exercises. In art, we used model magic to sculpt our own Keith Haring figures which we dyed using felt.
We have had a fantastic first day in Year 5. The children have worked hard and have behaved beautifully. We couldn’t be more proud of the great start they have had!
This afternoon we began out artwork based on Keith Haring. We explored his work and experimented with line and form showing movement in stick men. This will be used to build up our artwork across the next 2 weeks.
