Year 5

Our teacher is Mr Tugwell. We work really hard in Year 5 but also have fun with our learning, helping each other as much as we can.

In English we are learning lots more about spelling, punctuation and grammar so that we can improve our writing skills. We use core texts as the focus of our learning and decide together how to respond to what we have read. On a Friday we usually give a talk to the class which we have prepared around a topic. Our peers listen to the talks and try to think of difficult questions to ask us!

In maths we are focusing on using all four operations to solve calculation problems using measures, decimals, money etc. and bigger numbers!

Our topics this year are:

  • Comparing the Ancient Egyptian and Ancient Mayan Civilisations
  • Learning about the geography of North and South America
  • Studying the history of our local area

Lots of us go to sing at the O2 Arena in London as part of a massed choir every year.
