Year 5 - jubilantly wearing pyjamas!

Following on from the very exhausting week of Bike-ability, we have been working hard on our Maths and English.

In Maths this week, we have been looking at fractions. We have also been learning how to convert improper fractions to mixed numbers. Using bar models to help us, we successfully mastered it!

In English, we are working up to our narrative from the point of view of a plastic bottle floating down the River Itchen. In order to fill in our senses sheet that we were given, we explored the school grounds and used technical vocabulary to ensure our story would have lots of descriptive language in it. Using similes, metaphors and personification, we created sentences that we could use in our stories.

On Friday, Beech class came in jubilantly wearing pyjamas! We are collecting money for young carers and the Friends of Stanmore.

We are all looking forward to our learning next week before we break up for Easter.
