Orange Class (Year 5)

Welcome to the Orange Class (Year 5) page!

Welcome to Orange class. In the morning the year 5 children are taught by Mrs Harwood.

Orange Class have settled well into their new classroom. It is bright, colourful and exciting.

‘It’s really big !’ ‘I love it !’

In Literacy the children have been looking at diary entries , comparing different styles from the comedy of ‘Wimpy Kid’ to the reality of ‘Anne Frank’. This has also been a great link to our World War Two topic.

In maths we have been looking at place value in six and seven digit numbers as well as negative numbers too.

Science this term includes a study of the digestive system and a look at teeth and food chains.

We are enjoying our class story , ‘Letters from the Lighthouse’ by Emma Carroll, an author we met at the Hay Festival last year. This also links with our World War Two project, focussing on evacuees and their adventures in the countryside.
