Welcome to Cherry!
Welcome to the page of the first ever Year 5 class we have had at Maple Tree! Cherry class have most definitely settled into Year 5 life, and are getting used to the hard work expected of them now we are a Primary School. They are taking great responsibility during day-to-day tasks, and coming into the classroom in the morning via the back classroom door is proving very successful.
We have had a very busy start to the school year! The children seem to be enjoying our topic of 'The Ancient Egyptians'. We have already learnt about mummification, the discovery of King Tutankhamun, the uses of the River Nile and much more! We have created fantastic pieces of watercolour art, and have made cartouches out of clay. In Science, we have also managed to complete a science experiment of mummifying tomatoes, observing what happens over time.
In Maths, we have had a focus upon place value, understanding what each digit means. We were working on numbers up to 1,000,000! We are now moving onto addition and subtraction, and how to apply these to everyday life.
We have so much more to look forward to during this topic, so keep checking back to see what we are up to.
If you have any questions or concerns, do not hesitate to come and talk to us either briefly before school, or after school.
