This week, Year 5 started working on our big write about the Windrush generation. Learning about migration has been a brilliant opportunity to relate our learning between subjects (Humanities and English). We have also been linking our in-class learning to the histories of our own families and how they came to settle in London.
In maths, we have been practising our problem solving skills using the four operations. This involved analysing what makes a clear and interesting problem solving question; we have even had a go at writing our own for our peers to solve! Writing and solving our own problems called for lots of risk-taking and resilience.
We have also been doing lots of work in the creative curriculum. In music, we have been enjoying developing our African drumming skills using djembes and in PE we have started our unit on athletics.
What a fantastic week of relating our learning!
