Welcome to Cedar Class from Mr Lockett.
Cedar Class: Firstly, what a fantastic start to the year we have had! I have thoroughly enjoyed meeting all of the children and welcoming them into Year 5.
Over the start of this term, we have completed some fantastic learning! In Topic, we have begun to learn all about the Vikings. We have completed some excellent artwork, turning our self-portraits into Viking Warriors for our class display. We have also learnt all about who the Vikings were and where they came from.
We have been using this History learning as a stimulus for our writing in English by writing about the Viking raid at Lindisfarne.
In Maths, we have begun to look at numbers up to 1,000,000. We have investigated how to represent these numbers in different ways and how to round numbers to the nearest 10, 100 and 1,000.
Across other curriculum areas, we have also been improving our sprinting/hurdling and relay techniques (PE), enhanced our shading skills (Art) and begun investigating and classifying materials (Science).
Below is a snapshot of some of our recent learning so far this half term.
