16 Sep Beatitudes and Queen’s memorial
This week has been a bittersweet experience as the school mourned the death of The Queen, whilst still continuing learning as usual.
In Math, year 5 rounded numbers to the nearest 10, 100, and 1,000 and read and wrote numbers in numerals and words in the tens of thousands. Today was Arithmetic Friday, so we had a timestable quiz and focused on multiplication of 2 and 3 digit numbers by 1 digit using the column method.
In literacy, we wrote descriptions of the main character Sophie, using personality traits with evidence from the text.
In RE, we completed the unit ‘The Beatitudes’. Year 5 reflected on the meaning of each teaching and drew pictures that represented that particular Beatitude.
Our History lesson focused on timelines, identifying where the Anglo-Saxons were in British history as well as other important events in Anglo-Saxon time.
Lastly, in Science, we considered the properties of materials, evaluating why certain materials are used, such as for strength, durability, waterproof, flexibility, transparency.
Today, Year 5 and 6 visited the church to pay respects on the Queen’s passing. It was a lovely remembrance time, with children reflecting on their feelings towards the Queen and all she represented as the Head of our country. She will be dearly missed!
Math, Reading and spelling homework has been handed out. It is due on Wednesday (though it can be brought in earlier). Please encourage your child to tackle their homework straight away rather than leaving it till the very last day, that way if they need help, they can ask me before the work is due.
PE will be every Tuesday; Library visits will be every other Friday starting next week.
Remember, Monday 19th will be a Bank holiday due to the Queen’s funeral.
Please use the links below to help with the Math in case you have difficulty (with adult supervision).
Have a restful weekend!!
