Wow, what a long and jam packed half term we’ve had!
We have completed two units of work in English, based on Carrie’s War and The Day The War Came; completed lots of concepts in maths (place value, addition, subtraction, methods, perimeter & converting measures) as well as diving into life during World War II. We’ve had whole school Mass, taken part in our Evacuation Day and been on residential to the Sustainability Centre.
As part of Black History Month, the children in Y5 were learning about Jesse Owens. While discovering facts about his life we have had several philosophical conversations about what society was like in 1936.
Half Term Homework Task:
We would like you to research one of the key figures listed below and present your information in a fact file/ poster.

Wishing you a lovely half term with your family,
The Year 5 Team
We arrived back at school today very happy, a little tired and with a lot of muddy clothes! What a fantastic time was had by all!!!
A great deal was packed into three day this week and the children gained many new experiences which I’m sure they will share with you tonight and over this weekend.
As they say a picture says a thousand words!
