What a busy start we have already had in Y5!
In English, we have looked at Haiku poetry , which is a traditional Japanese form of poetry. Haiku poems only have three lines, with five, seven and five syllables on each line. Usually, they are poems about something natural, or the beauty of nature. Y5 decided to use them for something completely different. We used them to try and describe the civil war in Beirut, based on our class text!
The language and description used by the class was incredible. Here are the poems that Harry, Mark and Madeleine came up with.
In Maths, Y5 have become experts in multiplying fractions, and have made a great start at finding fractions of amounts. Tricky stuff, but I am very proud of how hard they are all trying. This was the work that James sent to show me.
In R.E. we are learning about the Eucharist. We looked at the hymn that we often sing during Holy Communion and thought carefully about what the words in the hymn mean, trying to link our ideas to the Last Supper, the teachings of Jesus and our lives today. These were Ellen’s ideas.
Well done Y5. You’re doing an amazing job, enjoy your weekend!
