This week, the children have been looking at a range of fiction and non-fiction texts. We then looked at the different features of newspaper reports as our next text type that we will be working towards over the next few weeks. Working together, we sorted the different parts and examples to create a model newspaper report ready for our writing next week.

As part of our English lessons, we have been writing a narrative. After we had written this neatly, we were invited into Year 1 to share what we had written with our younger children. We read our narratives to different children and the enjoyment we had was amazing!

As part of our Famous Figures projects, Year 5 have been learning all about the late Queen Elizabeth II in the 1960s.

This week, we have been focusing on the important topic of place value in Mathematics. In our lessons, the children have been using a range of concrete resources to represent numbers up to 1,000,000. We have looked carefully at the value of each digit in the numbers and also learnt how to accurate write numbers as words.

This week, the children have begun their Geography lessons by looking at an OS Map of Manchester and Salford. We completed tasks to find our local area of Heywood and identify any key landmarks and noticeable features. In addition to this, we looked at the scale and what that meant in terms of size and also the different contour lines which represented mountains and hills.
