Year 5 – have hit the ground running this week. They have covered Area in Maths looking at rectangles and compound shapes. They have also started a new topic this term about Space. Their English book is called Cosmic which is also related to Space. They have looked at the features of a leaflet, planned one of their own and started writing. They will continue with this next week. In Science, starting their topic about Space, they have created a poster showing the planets in our solar system.
Year 6 – have started reading their new Power of Reading book, Wolf Brother, by Michelle Paver. They are already enjoying the story and have produced some lovely charcoal monochrome images of wolves.
