September 2021 in Year 5

In Year 5, we have been focusing on fiction texts and the different genres. We are now able to categorise fiction texts into the correct genre. We then wrote our own version of the classic story Three Little Pigs. Instead of writing it as the well know Fairy Tale we mixed it up and wrote it in three different genre types.  The beginning was in the style of science fiction; the middle was a mystery and we ended it with comedy.

In Maths we have been focusing on place value and we have learnt about number up to 1 million and those below zero, the negative numbers.

In History, we have been learning about Aztecs and in Art we are making masks in the style of the Aztecs.
