Welcome to Year 5

Year 5 have had an amazing start to the year! It has been so lovely to see everyone again and get to know the Starfish class.

We have all been working hard in class recapping our place value knowledge in Maths. In English we have read a lovely book called Here we Are and spoke about how we felt returning to school after lock down. This week we finished off our Topic Brainwave. In these lessons we learned about how we learn. We taught each other some new skills. We also learned about how our brain and memory works, and how to maintain a growth mindset in class. We also explored the magic word ‘Yet’. Instead of saying I can’t do it, try saying I can’t do it Yet!

In our Exit Point lesson we created 3D glasses and spoke about the two parts Attitude + Effort = Success.
