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!
