Our new topic is the Ancient Greeks!
We are especially looking at our question : Who had the stronger community...Spartans or Athenians?
Throughout this term we will be looking at the communities in detail, thinking about their differences and similarities.
Towards the end of the term, for Art's Week, we looked at the poem the Highway Man.
We created horse puppets to match the poem!
This term we were lucky enough to visit Beamish!
The children had so much fun, exploring a pit town!
In September, we started to read Street Child! The children were so interested in Jim's life and how different his life was to our lives now!
We concentrated on description of characters in English, as well as "show don't tell" feelings, which we used to express and indicate emotion, without telling the reader how the character feels.
A lot of our class this term have finished our reading scheme! Which means they are a free reader!
Miss Lewis has been so impressed with how we have settled into year five!
This term, Year 5ML has started their new topic of the Ancient Greeks! We will be focusing on mythical beasts!
In English the children have been using Talk 4 Writing to recite the story of Theseus and the Minotaur! We are now focusing on a character description of their own mythical beast!
In Maths the children are solving multiplication and division problems. We have been using different ways of discovering ways of trying to solve problems!
