Children in Year 5 have been having a busy term. Our enquiry big question is ‘Do you have to be a hero to make a difference?’ and we have been learning all about the British inventors who have shaped our world. If you know a Year 5 pupil, make sure to ask them about the achievements of Brunel, Tim Berners-Lee or Edward Jenner! In maths, we are busy practising our multiplication and division skills, including maths problems taken from the real world. Our science work this term is all about space: we have been tracking the changing appearance of the moon each night with our moon diaries. We are enjoying reading ‘The Jamie Drake Equation’ by Christopher Edge and learning whether other planets have the potential to sustain life. Our art project this term is clay sculpture so we have been developing new techniques to mould and shape in 3D. Finally, in PE, we have been swimming, which we know is an essential life skill to help keep us safe and healthy.
