Welcome to Moonstone Blog 8th November

We've had such a busy first half term in year 5. The children have settled well into Moonstone class and have been working really hard.  

This week we have started to learn about equivalent fractions in maths. We have also worked hard to improve the recall of our times table facts.

In writing we have started to learn how to write sci-fi stories. We have looked at the features of the genre and written detailed descriptions based on a short clip from Star Wars.  In reading, we are focusing on improving our fluency and inference skills. We have also re-started the book raffle, which will take place every other Friday. Please encourage your child to read at home every day.

 Our topic this half term is space - any home learning projects on this topic would be fantastic to receive. This week we've been learning about the planets and the distances between them. 

Thank you for all of your support so far this term.  Have a great weekend!
