Maths Competition – boys v girls  

Spelling Challenge  


We have had a wonderful week in Year 5.

In English we have done lots of exciting writing. We wrote a descriptive piece about D Day, we planned our own sequel to Varjak Paw, and we wrote a performance poem about nature.  We also learnt about D Day in our history lesson.  We looked at some documents from the National Archive and then used them to solve clues and figure out the planning that took place for D Day.

In maths, we have been finding equivalent fractions and then adding and comparing fractions. This is tricky but everybody has done a fantastic job.

In RE, we continued with our learning about the Ten Commandments. We shared our ideas about which Commandment we think is the most important. We then read God’s People from the book of Isaiah. This scripture describes things that please God. We used the ideas to write own our instructions about living in God’s way. Here is the scripture we examined:

God says:

Be clear about what is right and what pleases me! Giving up things and putting on a miserable face does not impress me. What brings me joy is everything that brings freedom: a kindly word for someone who is worried; a helping hand for someone in trouble. When people share food with the hungry and help the homeless find shelter; if they give clothes to those in need and work at bringing happiness to their family and friends, I see my love growing in them. This is what pleases me, and they will become signs of hope for everyone, like a bright sunrise after a long dark night. (Isaiah 58: 3-8)

In music we practised singing the songs for Bugsy Malone. The lyrics to the song can be found on this blog.
