Welcome back to Year 5F’s blog for this week.


Maths – We began the week continuing with ordering fractions with different denominators (bottom numbers). After that, we moved on to adding and subtracting fractions. We have now finished looking at fractions and can all compare, simplify, order, add and subtract fractions! How amazing is that?


Have a look at this online game to help you learn how to add fractions…

English – We have researched all about Wigan and The Lake District on laptops and made notes. We used these notes to compare Wigan to The Lake District and wrote a non-chronological report about both these places. We discovered that there are 16 lakes in The Lake District, Windermere being the most famous. Wigan has the DW Stadium, home to the mighty Wigan Warriors and FA Cup Winners, Wigan Athletic. The area of Wigan is 77 sq miles, with a population of 317,100, whereas The Lake District is an enormous 885 sq miles in area with a much smaller population of 40,800. This is boosted temporarily by the 16 million tourists who visit every year.


Today has been Sports Relief Day in school and all the children have come in wearing their sports clothes. Take a look at how sporty they all look…

Our certificate winner this week was Christopher A for being a quiet, hard-working pupil, who just gets on with every task and completes all work to a high standard. A big well done to Christopher from us all. smileysmileysmiley

The children have been working extremely hard to learn their lines for our Easter production. Rehearsals have been going well, and we can’t wait to see you all next Wednesday 23rd March at 9 am for our Easter Eggstravganza!


Remember if your child is bringing a decorated egg for the Easter Egg Competition they need to bring them in on Monday 21st March to be judged. All eggs will be on display on the Middle Phase for parents to view after school on Monday. Please come along and take a look – they are always eggtastic!


All that remains to say is to have a great weekend. We will see you again on Monday. Don’t forget we break up for the Easter holidays next Wednesday 23rd March, at the normal time of 3.15 pm.
