Year 5: Week beginning 27th November

Well done everyone for all your hard work this week.  We have persevered with some tricky Maths this week and enjoyed the challenges for our launch.  Yesterday, we used our pupil voice for ideas for our new topic and I was very impressed and we are looking forward to using some of these ideas both in sessions and as part of our mission area.  
Next week in Maths, we will continue to focus on time – changing between analogue and digital, reading timetables and using frog jumps to find the difference between two times.  In Thema, we will be finding out about Queen Victoria and researching a timeline for the Victorians.  Also, we will find out about Charles Dickens who wrote ‘A Christmas Carol’ and write a persuasive letter to convince Scrooge why he should celebrate Christmas.
P.E. will be on Wednesday and swimming on Thursday.  Homework (Maths sheet) and reading books are due in on Tuesday as usual.  Have a lovely weekend.
Mrs Hodkinson, Mrs McCaffrey and Mrs Cheetham.
