Year 5 have been fabulously resilient during assessment week! They have embraced their tests with determination and resilience. We have enjoyed our class text - Street Child - and we can't wait to see if our predictions for Jim Jarvis will be true. On Friday we had our sharing event with parents. Newstead class performed This is Me and Jingle Bells in Makaton. They spent some time sharing their work with their family and enjoyed a traditional Victorian stew made from the Southwell Workhouse recipe.

This week we have been multiplication masterminds! Year 5 have been super resilient with some tricky work this week - Miss Springhall is extremely proud! We are also very busy practicing for our Christmas Carol concert with year 6. In English, we are beginning to look at newspapers. This week we have started with our opening paragraphs - ensuring we include the 5Ws.

This week we have written our final narratives for The Highwayman. The children used their story mountains to support their writing, resulting in some amazingly descriptive writing. The children are all so proud of them. In maths we have been applying our understanding of multiplication to multiple methods and our confidence has grown over the week!
Star of the week!
Year 5 voted Josh as our star of the week!
