Spring 1 Year 5L

This half term we have worked really hard in our new environments at home or in school. The children have done amazing and I am very proud of them.

In English we studied the text ‘Escape from Pompeii’ and produced some graphic novels based on it. We also extended this to Geography where we studied how Volcanoes and Earthquakes are formed and the children produced reports based on Mount Vesuvius.

In Maths we covered Fractions, Decimals and Percentages in a variety of different contexts. We completed conversions, equivalence and multi-step problems.

We studied Roman artwork and produced some fantastic collages.

In guided reading we covered Jeremy Strong’s Romans on the Rampage and we really enjoyed finding out about Roman culture and Perilus’ antics.
