Welcome to Lowton Junior and Infant School, encouraging growth at every stage of your child’s development.
Friday 17th November
Welcome back! We have had a wonderful week here in Year 5.
In English, we have been learning how to use our reading skills to gather information for our non- chronological reports all about chimpanzees. We have linked our English lessons to our science topic, and we have really enjoyed learning all about these intelligent animals. Did you know that we share 98.4% of our DNA with chimpanzees? Please ask us all about our facts at home. Also, we have been learning all about relative clauses within multi- clause sentences; we really impressed Mrs Fitzroy with how well we composed our sentences using our facts. Well done everyone!
In maths, we have been learning how to find the perimeter of rectilinear shapes, including shapes with missing lengths. We have all been really resilient learners this week and we just know that we will be able conquer Area next week. Well done to Mason, Jessica, Liberty and Callum for working so hard.
In our topic lessons, we have been locating different mountain ranges and using a legend to work out the height of their highest peaks. Next week, we will be looking at how mountains are formed and their features. We have also been looking at reproduction in flowering plants. In this exciting topic, we got to cut open a real plant and identify all of its parts, using our scientific language to discuss them.
We would like to say a big THANK YOU to everyone who brought in cake donations and bought cakes in school. We’re sure that we have raised lots of money.
Well that’s all for now. We hope that you have a wonderful weekend and we will see you all next week.
Mrs Fitzroy, Miss Henry and all of Year 5.
