This week Year 5 have been continuing our learning journey about Space. We mapped out a scaled representation of our Solar System using toilet paper (1 sheet = 30,000,000km). Some of you may have been to the Oliver Jeffers trail ‘Our place in Space’ last year, which is another example of a scaled model of the solar system.

Can you think of any other ways you can represent the Solar System at home?

The website for the James Webb Telescope is here if you would like to see some more of the stunning photographs of our universe:

In English we have continued to explore the features of mystery, exploring more of the pictures of Harris Burdick. You may wish to write a mystery narrative of your own. You can find a PDF of the book here: KS2 writing features – creating suspense Mysteries of Harris Burdick

In Maths we have finished the last week on fractions, and we will be moving to decimals and percentages in relation to fractions. The sheets for this week’s learning can be downloaded here: Wk 2 worksheets

Guided Reading: If you would like to pre-read next week’s chapter, you can download it here: Chapter 4

Next week:

PE lessons will take place on Wednesday and Thursday next week. Please ensure that you have the right kit, otherwise parents will be informed and a restart will be given.

We are collecting items of recycling for our DT project ‘Beat the Flood’. You may like to consider using materials that are waterproof and strong.

Next Friday we will be celebrating the King’s coronation with a tea party (similar to the Jubilee). We will sing the National Anthem during this historic moment. You can find the words here:

A reminder that learning conversations are happening on Wednesday and Thursday – please do sign up for a slot for this.
