Ash Class Update - Spring 2



In Year 5 we have continued with our Geography learning about biomes and how they change along a line of longitude.  We really enjoyed our trip to Wisley Gardens where we experienced for ourselves how plants change in different climates and environments.  Art continues to have a global theme and we are in the process of designing and producing our own Islamic tiles for a display. 

In English the children have written some very interesting recounts about our visit to Woking Mosque.  We all learnt a lot and really enjoyed this trip.  We also enjoyed our trip to Leatherhead Theatre to watch Legally Blonde by The Howard of Effingham students. 

During Science Week we carried out an investigation into how long it takes our daily rubbish to decompose in landfill and in the sea.  We were very surprised by some of the results.  Why not login to the school Instagram account to see the great work the children produced as part of this project.

In Maths we have finished our work on fractions and are beginning our learning around decimal numbers.  It will really help the children to embed their prior learning if they regularly complete the arithmetic papers which I am setting for homework.  As always regular reading and mental maths practice helps support all areas of the Year 5 curriculum.
