Multiplication Methods

Applying our knowledge of times tables, we have been using column method to multiply. Beginning with multiplying single digits, we quickly moved on to two digit numbers- using different colours to show each calculation. 

Read all about it!

Year 5 have been exploring the work of journalists and were lucky enough to receive a visit from Katy Roberts, who used to work for local paper- the Target. She shared with us the approach she took to find all of the vital information needed to write an article and how important it was to report the facts. She also answered lots of questions about her career as a journalist. We can't wait to collect the facts for our article- watch this space so that you can- 'Read all about it' an issue that affacts our school!

How is faith demonstrated through the arts?

This term our key question in RE is, 'How is faith demonstrated through the arts?' We began by drawing what we thought Jesus, Mary and a Saint would look like, discussing our preconceived ideas and where they came from. We then explored some Byzantine Icons, looking at their key features and the symbolism of the colours used.

What makes a special person?

Exploring the key question, 'what makes a special person?' we drew an person and then filled him with key words as we discussed with our friends. We thought about the key qualities they might demonstrate through their actions and words and the kinds of choices a special person makes.

Community Collaboration

After a discussion with Reverend Sue about the number of homeless people in our community we decided we needed to do something. Working with our peers, parents, staff and governors, we created gifts to be given to the homeless whilst they have breakfast in town at St Botolph's church daily. Baking both sweet and savoury treats, creating Christmas cards and decorations, we parcelled them up and took them to St Botolphs to be given out.
