w/c Wednesday 5th September

Welcome to Tolcarne!
I hope that everyone has settled in and enjoyed the first few days. They have been an absolute pleasure and have started Year 5 with determination and perseverance. I am really looking forward to the amazing things they are going to achieve.
In Maths this week we have focused on Place Value with numbers up to a million. We have used models and pictures to help us record our understanding and have challenged each other with different examples. We have been partitioning and then combining numbers, proving our answers by using grids. 
In Literacy we have started to learn about the Anglo-Saxon story of Beowulf. It is a dark tale of an evil beast that terrorises a community. The class have been thinking about how the monster might look. We have designed our own terrifying monsters for our class display and have written about the monster using description. The class were able to write in whichever style they wished. We had stories, poems, diary entries and fact files. It really showed what they were able to do independently and I have been very pleased with their work.
