It has been lovely to have the children back in school after a lovely Easter break. The weather has been beautiful all week and especially today when we have been working on our green fingers in the allotments. This has also tied in brilliantly with the water cycle which has been a key focus this week for our new topic 'Investigating Rivers.
In Maths, the children have been getting to grips with mixed number and improper fractions. Tables and corresponding division facts impact on so many areas in Maths so keep learning your tables Year 5.
