The Mount Stewart Schools

Year 5

Welcome to Year 5!


Each week we will be filling this page with exciting class news, pictures of our learning and more.

This week we have begun our exploration into space, learning about evidence to support scientific theories,  learning interesting facts about our solar system, and how special Earth is. 


We have begun reading our new text, Journey to the River Sea, joining Maia and Miss Minton on their journey down the Amazon River, and experiencing  the exotic sights and sounds that South America has to offer.   We have looked at perspectives, and written as if we were in Maias' shoes, and seeing all these wonderful new things for the first time.  


We have continued to look deeper into place value and becoming comfortable with 7 digit numbers, as well as truly appreciating the magnitude of a million within the number system. 


There is a lot of excitement around the up coming PGL trip next week, and I am sure it will be an incredible experience for Year 5, full of wonderful new memories, new friends, and great stories to tell when we come back.  


Another great week Year 5, well done!
