Week beginning 01.02.16

Another busy week…

In Maths the year 5’s were learning about the properties of different triangles. They also used weighing scales to weigh a selection of different carbohydrates to learn about grams and kilograms. On Friday we learnt how to convert millilitres to litres and vice versa.
On Monday in PE the children practised different ways of training to improve their fitness for particular Olympic sports e.g. step-ups, throwing and catching and rope ladders.
On Wednesday Year 5 had a successful visit to their local library. They learnt how to look up non-fiction books using the catalogue, and were shown around all of the children’s section. We hope this visit has inspired them to use the library more and read a variety of fiction and non-fiction books.
Today in PE they were applying all the skills they have been learning in hockey to a match situation.  
In English we continued looking at the book ‘Oranges in No Man’s Land’ for our fiction unit. 5SG used their imagination to write their own version of Samar’s story.
Some pupils handed in their monster designs for the Road Monster competition, so we’ll wait and see if we get any winners…
There are lots of things to look forward to next week…among other things, the Ash Wednesday Mass and a poetry recital on Friday. Year 5 need to practice their rap, ‘Gran, can you rap?’!
In Maths we will be using the written column method to add amounts of money in pounds and pence, adding 2-place decimals using written column addition, and subtracting decimal numbers using counting up.

Have a lovely weekend!
