Diamond Class



Monday 27th Feb

The first week back after half term went by in a whirlwind, including a brilliant pancake flipping event (Huge thanks for Mrs Wood and Year 6 house captains for organising the event). We've jumped back into our learning with characteristic Year 5 energy and I'm looking forward to the next couple of weeks.


In English, we're continuing our work using the incredible 'Nowhere Emporium' and the the next 2 text types we will be visiting are narrative writing and newspaper reports. In maths, we continue our work on fractions before looking at area and then decimals. In science, we are coming to the end of our work on Earth and Space, looking at the phases of the moon. Next week is science week and we are following the theme of British Science week- connections. 

As we celebrate togetherness, after a period where isolation was a sad but necessary reality, ‘Connections’ is an apt theme for British Science Week 2023.

Nearly all innovations in science, technology, engineering and maths are built on connections between people; two (or more) heads are better than one, after all! But as well as exploring the importance and joy in connections between individual scientists, research groups and institutions, you could discover the different ways connections appear across all areas of science. Evolution, for example, shows us the ways that animals, including humans, as well as well, plants and bacteria are all connected in a family tree stretching back millennia.


We will be completing our unit on vector drawing in computing this week, as well as starting to think about weaving, how the Maya people did it and how it's used in clothing around the world today. 


Spellings will be tested next Monday (as we are in the forest this week) and then next Friday. Homework is as usual.


Most importantly, this Thursday is WORLD BOOK DAY. Come dressed in all red or all blue (you'll find out why during the day) or in a costume of your choice. Additionally, please bring or find in school a book that you love/have loved, ready to share with others.
