We have had a great start to life in Year 5. In English we have been enjoying the Anglo-Saxon legend of ‘Beowulf’ and have written our own versions, having great fun making up our own monsters. In Science we have been investigating the properties of materials including thermal and electrical conductivity. We are all enjoying our topic, finding out about life in Anglo-Saxon times, including applying our knowledge to make deductions about artefacts and create maps of our own Anglo-Saxon village.
We are really looking forward to next half term when we will be focusing on instruction writing in English. This will also involve making and writing instructions for our own Anglo-Saxon brooch, shield and model house.
Just a reminder that PE days are Tuesday and Wednesday in Spain and Wednesday and Friday in Canada. However, it is always useful for the children to have their PE kit in school from Monday to Friday. A big well done to all those children who are reading every night. Please ensure that the reading records are signed daily after the 10 minutes reading has been completed.
