This term in Lighthouse Class...
What an exciting start to the Summer Term in Year 5! In Literacy, we have been learning about a poem called The Highwayman, by Alfred Noyes, who tells the story of a highwayman who falls in love with Bess, a landlord’s daughter. We have been so impressed with the children’s enthusiasm during these lessons; they have shown excellent teamwork skills to produce short drama performances about the poem!
Meanwhile in maths we are focussing on the 4 key operations – addition, subtraction, multiplication and division. The children are now showing some fantastic reasoning skills as they help one another work through some tricky, multi-step word problems.
