Wow! The children have all returned to school really well this week after a well-earned, half term break. They have worked extremely hard in all lessons and produced some fantastic work. In Geography, we have be learning about lines of longitude and latitude and what they mean, before moving on to our new topic of 'North America' next week. In English we have watched the animated short story, 'Broken' - a tale of the battle between Rock, Paper and Scissors and have written some super character descriptions.


Maths this week has been all about fractions, building on our knowledge from Year 4 and learning to recognise equivalent fractions and in computing, we have discussed how the children can recognise when someone (or themselves) may be being bullied online/offline and what they can do about it. In both lessons we have used our knowledge to learn through playing games!
