Year 5 Newsletter

It has been a busy first week back. In Literacy we have been learning about presenting arguments using oracy skills. In groups, we have been preparing to go to court where both sides will have to present to the court the prosecution and defence cases on whether why the Wolf was brutally murdered by Brick Pig or not. We watched the police break in and examined evidence before writing our opening statement. The court date is on Monday 11th of June and the children are excited to see who wins the case.

In maths, we have been solving multi-step word problems by drawing models to prove the answers. It is great to see all children developing fluency and confidence in their approach to solving a range of problems.

We have also focused on asking powerful questions in P4C. We have discussed deeply the themes of friendship, hope and our feelings about us and the environment.

We developed a range of wonders around these themes.

'I wonder if we take for granted the things that are important'
 'I think hope is believing something will change'
'I hope in the future I make the right decisions'
