Cedar Class: What a fantastic Summer term we are having in Year 5! It has been a real pleasure working with the children again since our return to school.
 
In maths, we are continuing to work on the key areas of maths to support the children to be ready for their transition into Year 6. We have been investigating decimal numbers and converting between different metric units of measure.
 
In our English lessons, we have been writing emotive environmental poems. We have analysed song protest lyrics and other poems as a stimulus for our own. We are also really enjoying learning all about balanced arguments and preparing to write our own based on a topic.
 
We have also enjoyed diving into our new topic - The Magnificent Mayans. We have been building replica Mayan temples, created Mayan masks and investigated where they were from and some of their religious beliefs so far!
