YR5 Magpie Class News @FP

As Spring starts to appear with the blooming blossom trees, YR5 Magpie class @FP have enjoyed learning about the modernist artist Georgia O’Keefe and her nature inspired art. We have explored drawing flowers in her style using pencils – take a look at our work! We will continue to create art in the style of O’Keefe and I know it is going to look great.

In maths, Year 5 have started the topic ‘Decimals and Percentages’. So far this term, we have looked at decimals to two decimals places and their equivalent fractions. We will use this place value knowledge to move onto ordering, comparing and rounding decimals.

Our focus in English has been biographies. The class have enjoyed learning about the lives of inspirational people and are now focusing on how to share our information in an engaging, thoughtful way.

Our topic question in geography is ‘How is the UK different to the Americas?’. Magpie students have liked using maps and information texts to learn about the North and Central American countries and their regions.

Year 5’s RE topic is Christianity where we have learnt about The Trinity and Jesus’ 12 Disciples. The children had lots of thoughtful questions and liked showing their understanding through drawings. We will also learn about the Easter story as we head towards the Easter holiday.
