Hello Everybody!

5b have had a very positive and great few weeks! Last week we were the winners of the sports trophy and we have also won the lunchtime award three times in a row!

In Literacy, we began reading our new book ‘Beowulf.’ We have discussed what we like and dislike about the book so far, written kennings poems and also written letters based around the book.

In Numeracy, we have been learning how to calculate the area and the perimeter of shapes where we needed to use lots of different skills. We have also spent time learning grid method of multiplication.

In Topic, we have began learning about the Anglo-Saxons. We have learnt that they lived very different lives to us today and that their land was split into 7 kingdoms.

Finally, we have nearly reached the end of our reading for pleasure book ‘Thief’; it is amazing! We are hoping to finish reading it this afternoon.
