Children should be reading a book of their choice every night
Children will be given three of these words each week to learn but if you would like to learn more then please feel free to do so!
We've kick started the year off by understanding the place value of different numbers. We used 'Base 10' to help us.
In Science, children have carefully examined a flower to identify the main parts and understand some of its functions.
Comparing Plant Life Cycles
We've been comparing flowering plants to non-flowering plants. We know flowering plants have seeds and non-flowering plants have spores.
Egyptian Daily Life
Year 5 have started to use different sources of information to find out about daily life in Ancient Egypt. We already know how important the River Nile was to them and that not many Egyptian were able to read or write.
How to mummify fruit
We've looked in lots of different non-fiction books this week learning all about how and why pyramids were built.
Did you know it took over 20 years to build the pyramids at Giza?
Did you know between 20,000 - 30,000 men helped to pyramids at Giza?
Did you know the largest pyramid was over 450 ft high?
Numbers to 1,000,000
Year 5 are now able to recognise numbers up to 1,000,000 and played games to try and catch the partner out!
Children have learnt a song focusing on directions in Spanish. They re-arranged words into sentences using both directions and high street places.
