Our learning for this term 



W/E 24.9.21

We have really enjoyed delving more into the Anglo-Saxons this week and have found out about the Celtic Pagans - did you know that the Maypole and Halloween go all the way back to the Anglo-Saxons?

Our science was fun this week - we had to investigate which materials would be best for an insulated lunch box - we devised our own test and the results somewhat surprised us! Newspaper came out as the best insulator but we found it very interesting that the temperatures inside the cups went up and then back down again!

In maths, we have been learning our numbers right up into the millions and, in English, our mythological beast reports are coming along really well! We'll be able to show those off next week!

My reading thought for the week...

Let me know what you think!

Our Reader of the Week

For consistent reading, every day!

What a busy week we’ve had in Finnygook! Fully back into English, Maths and all theme lessons!

We’re writing fantastic descriptions of our Beowulf monsters, rounding numbers to the nearest ten or hundred and finding out about the Scots invading Northern England from Ireland. 

Well done to F on being our reader of the week and him also for being Achiever of the Week. 


Welcome to Year 5! 

We're already working hard in Finnygook!
