A fantastic January in Year 5

Year 5 have been busy learning about the different Mediterranean countries such as Spain, Turkey and Egypt. We have compared them to th UK looking at the different temperatures, rainfall and land use. 

We have written non fiction reports and then looked at the holiday destinations. Later, we wrote persuasive adverts using alliteration, similes and metaphors.

We have investigated the different life cycles of plants and animals in science. We made detailed drawings of flowers and then dissected them to identified the different parts and the roles they played.

We are loving learning cricket with coaches from Lancashire CC and we are deepening our understanding of fractions. We also took part in our fantastic assembly in which we learnt to moonwalk!

Can’t wait for February!

January in Year 1

We have had a very busy month in Kingfishers. We are working very hard on our phonics and writing in Literacy. This term we have been writing a travel journal on Safari using The Lion King as our writing stimulus. In Maths we have been working hard on addition and subtraction. We have started our new Weather topic and in Art we made our own hot and cold collages using different materials. These are proudly on display in our classroom. Some children are enjoying their after school board games club with Mrs Coupe where they are learning new skills and we have all been learning about Chinese New Year for our class assembly next week. We hope you can make it. Finally, we all had fun in the snow too. What a busy month!
