Pioneers Class - Year 5
Welcome to Pioneers (Year 5). We are very excited to have you back at school with us and are enjoying settling in to our new routines.
Remember to bring your PE kit in on Monday and Tuesday!
This term our topic is called 'Globetrotting Around North America'. We will be learning about the different countries in North America. If any of you have visited any countries in North America, we would love to see some photos of your trip!
Learning this Week
Maths- we are learning to partition, round and order numbers to 100,000 and then 1,000,000.
Literacy- we are using the short film 'One Small Step' to write narratives based on Space. This week we are using different techniques to write interesting and effective sentences.
