Term 1 - Week 4:
What a super week we have had in Year 5 in both English and Maths! In English we have been role-playing how characters might feel - so showing not telling - and also learning about Pablo Fanque, a Victorian circus proprietor and equestrian performer. A truly amazing and inspirational character! I am also impressed with the children's understanding of all concepts in place value. Not only have they demonstrated this to me and Mrs Cantwell, but they have also planned a presentation to children in other classes with lots of super activities. I am planning to try and present these remotely - watch this space!
Term 1 - Week 3:
Another week of super Maths and English! We have continued to focus on exploring characters, looking at how we can convey what they are like through what they say and do - and also at becoming experts on using speech and inverted commas correctly when writing! Maths is still all about place value! This time we have been rounding and writing large numbers in both digits and words - the children have also been showing their understanding to Mrs Cantwell and I know she has enjoyed hearing about their learning! I am looking forward to another great week!

Term 1 - Week 2:
This week it has been brilliant to see how well the children have adapted to our new routines. Very little reminding need from Mrs O!
In Maths they have enthusiastically shown me their understanding of place value using a range of different methods even with numbers up to a million!
We are also enjoying our class book, Son of the Circus and really getting to understand what life would be like for the main character of the story during Victorian times. Mrs Cantwell is also keeping me informed of their work with her on Fridays, she is certainly enjoying her time in class. Well done everybody!
