Welcome to Y5 - Mr Chipchase
All children in Year 5 have really enjoyed using Mathletics. They have worked hard in each session to improve areas of maths that they have had difficulty with. Children also have the opportunity to win the Mathematician of the week certificate for using the virtual learning platform (Mathletics).
Our Creative Curriculum topic this half of term has been rivers. All pupils in Year 5 have enjoyed studying each section of a river in detail. Additionally, pupils have sought information from many secondary sources to learn about the River Tyne, River Thames, River Rhine, River Nile and the Amazon River. They have worked exceptionally hard to discover the main impact and use of rivers.
As part of our Creative Curriculum topic of rivers, children were given the opportunity to design, build and evaluate bridges. They really enjoyed testing the limits of their bridges and are certain that they know how to build stronger bridges next time!
