Friday 3rd March


Welcome to the first week’s blog from Year 5F for this half term. We hope you have all had a great week. It was World Book Day on Thursday. The children enjoyed dressing up as characters from their favourite books and took part in a variety of book related activities and challenges throughout the day. Here are some pictures…

Maths – The children have continued to look at fractions this week. They have been investigating improper fractions and mixed number fractions. An improper fraction is when a fraction has a numerator that is larger than the denominator. For example, 17/4 or 6/3. A mixed number fraction is when you have a whole number as well as a fraction. For example, 3 and ¾ or 7 and ½.


Take a look at this website which allows you to convert between improper fractions and mixed number fractions…

English – The children have been looking at the spelling rules for words ending in cious and tious. Also, they have begun to look at our new class book called Tuesday by David Wiesner. It is a wordless book – a book without words! The children are using the pictures to make their own book with words, telling the story of the frogs. Take a look at this animated version of the story…

Science – The children have begun our new topic which is called FORCES. They have been thinking about which forces they already know like gravity and friction. They decided that forces are either a push or a pull. The children went on to produce a mind map of what they know about forces already.


Topic – The children have begun our new topic about William Wordsworth and Alfred Wainwright. At the beginning of the week, they used the laptops to research these famous men and their connection to the Lake District. This week, the children have begun to write a biography about each of these legendary men.


Here is our CERTIFICATE WINNER for this week. She won for making more of an effort to focus on her own work and learning this week. Fantastic! Keep it up! nonono

All that remains to say is have a super weekend and we will see you again on Monday.
