Summer 1

Happy Easter everyone! I hope you all enjoyed your break! In year 5, we all charged our batteries during these two weeks and we are back ready to carry on working hard with our learning and having a lot of fun as well!

Week 5

We have had a very busy week! In maths, we worked very hard with our decimal numbers: addingd and subtracting as well as multiplying and dividing . In Literacy we finished looking at the features of persuasive speeches and started writing one. In RE we looked at the importance of the Holy Trinity and drew beautiful triptychs showing God represented in the Holy Trinity. Lastly, we had a blast playing diamond cricket.

Remember that you are dust, and to dust you shall return!
