Firstly, the Seagulls Team would like to thank all family members that attended our first assembly of Year 5.
This week, we have started reading our next class novel- Suffragette: The Battle for Equality. The children have been interested to hear some of the inequalities that there were in our own historical past! The children have been introduced to some great vocabulary such as ‘inequalities’ and ‘democracy’.
We have continued our WW2 topic. This week the children enjoyed looking at the features of propaganda posters from the time and designing their own. The children thought carefully about their slogans to persuade others to wear their gas masks and blackout their windows during a raid.
In Maths, we have started our focus on fractions- children will need their times tables over the coming weeks so any work that can be done at home would be most appreciated. All pupils have access to Discovery Education - https://www.discoveryeducation.co.uk. If your child cannot remember their username and password, please ask the class teacher for these details.
