This week in Maths we have been investigating negative numbers. We started by counting with a counting stick to practice, and then had an interesting debate on what negative numbers are and whether they were smaller than decimals.
Today we related negative numbers to temperature, investigating line graphs and tables, as well as storeys in a building.
The pupils all engaged well and showed good resilience to solve some tricky problems!

For the past two weeks, we have been reading 'The Lost Words' poetry. These are acrostic poems focused on British wildlife and plants, with beautiful illustrations too.
We have read and analysed lots of poems from the book, looking at the poetry techniques used, such as alliteration, personification and metaphors. Year 5 worked hard to improve their vocabulary and use expanded noun phrases and prepositions throughout our lessons, producing some thoughtful poems on their chosen animal or plant.
