Year 5 Class News (10.6.22)

In English we’ve started to read a new book by Nicola Davies called The Promise. It has a very powerful environmental message and links to our Science and Geography topics really well. In the latter we’ve been discussing and investigating renewable sources of energy which produce electricity without being too expensive and, more importantly, not causing harm to our planet.
In Maths we’ve been using scaling to solve word problems as well as converting scale drawings into different metric units.
We finished this lovely week off with our last fund-raising event of the year. We organised a cake sale with Year 4 and raised funds for the NSPCC today. We had a huge selection of cakes and biscuits to choose from and Year 4 really enjoyed them plus we raised a good amount for the charity too. Many thanks to everyone who contributed.
Many congratulations to our Writer and Stars of the Week. Have a good week-end and enjoy the sunshine. Take care and stay safe.
Mrs Howard and Mrs Direnzo
