Year 5 Weekly Review
Children fulfilling their potential in the heart of the community.
Week Ending: Friday 26th April 2019
Welcome Back! I hope you had a fun (and partly restful) Easter holiday.
This week we have finished with our work on decimals and have begun looking at how decimals and fractions relate to percentages. We have also spent a bit of time revising our past topics, particularly multiplication and division and place value. Next week we will be starting our Part 2 of Decimals!
In English we have begun our new text, 'There's a Boy in the Girl's Bathroom'. This is written by Louis Sachar, the same author that wrote our previously studied text - Holes. The introduction to this book has provided us with lots of opportunities for reading activities and discussion about characters, plot and the author's intent.
This week we have started our new topic, Power and Politics. We started by looking at the structure of the Houses of Parliament, focusing on where the House of Commons and House of Lords are situated, before looking at different rules and traditions of Parliament. We also arranged ourselves into a human timeline to sort different dates and key events associated with Parliament. Next week we will be focusing on the role of MPs and Government Ministers within the House of Commons.
We have started our PSHE topic, Living in the Wider World: Rights and Responsibilities. We've begun planning a fundraising exercise based on a right of ours we are entitled to at school and therefore the responsibility we have to partake in it. More will be revealed next week!
Have a lovely weekend.
Miss Collyer and Miss Duckworth
