January 2020 in Year 5

This month in Year 5 we have been working hard! In Maths we have been working on short division, equivalent fractions and comparing fractions. Our English topic has been Film Narrative, we watched the Montage from ‘Up!’ and The Piano by Aiden Gibbons. We investigated how light, colour and music had been used in these films and wrote a fantastic narrative on The Piano.

In Science our topic has been Electricity, we have created our own circuits and looked at the different symbols used for the components.

We have also had great fun taste testing Mexican inspired food, such as; pepper and guacamole. We then made our own tortillas, guacamole and salsa and evaluated them using a ‘stargram’.
