Collaborative learning in year 5

Year 5 have had a great start to the new half term working together in both English and Maths.

We have had a fun filled (albeit short) first week back! The children have started their new suspense unit in English. They have worked together to create word banks for key vocabulary and using the suspense techniques in different sentences. The children are very excited about their upcoming movie trailers!

In Maths we have been using our problem solving skills to investigate prime, square and cube numbers.

Our topic work is focusing on individual countries in South America, this week we focused on Argentina. We have learnt lots about the Falklands war, Diego Maradona and his ‘hand of god’ goal and Miss Stone has taught Istanbul some Spanish phrases.
