Welcome to this week’s blog It has, as always, been another busy week here in Year 5F.


Maths – This week the children have continued interpreting data. They have been investigating timetables and how to read information from them. They have also been investigating time – looking at the 12-hour and 24-hour clock and how to convert between the two. This is often shown as digital (24 hour) and analogue (12 hour) clocks. This website allows you to explore time a little further…

Science – The children have looked at the changes that occur in old age, the final stage in human development. They have been thinking about how we keep our bodies healthy from a young age so that we can have a fit and healthy life in later years.


Topic – The children have been looking t manuscripts during Viking and Saxon times. They have researched illuminated letters (the first letter of the page in a new chapter) which are bigger and more decorated than other letters. They have then taken their initial letter in their name and illuminated it using different medium.
