Year Five have been working exceptionally hard over the past couple of weeks, in the build-up to half term and we have continued to put 110% effort into our work. We have been attempting to get our mind around various elements of fractions, including the following: converting between mixed and improper fractions, comparing and ordering fractions and addition of fractions with comparable denominators.
In English, we have been planning and writing our own alternative ending to Romeo and Juliet, with a twist. Pupils have produced some comical, gruesome and shocking endings. We have also acted some other scenes out to help us understand how scripts work including exploration of settings and stage directions.
During our science lessons, we have been looking at forces and how water resistance and friction impacts vehicles. Pupils then had to design their own sledge and boats within a set criterion, including key vocabulary such as: gravity, air resistance, water resistance, friction and surface area.
In art, we have been expressing ourselves through the media of graffiti, we have been looking at how to juxtapose graffiti on a different form of art such as collages or watercolours.
From all the Year 5 team, we wish you a happy and safe half term!
