For the last few weeks, both Year 5 classes have been learning about “Decimals”. This week we put our maths knowledge into practice by solving some challenging word problems. Whilst in English we have been continuing to study Macbeth and in particular introducing the children to rhyming couplets. We focussed on a specific scene from the play – the “Witches Brew” which is written in rhyming couplets. The children were then asked to write their own rhyming couplets. In addition, this term in Art, the children have been learning how to paint landscapes. They have worked effortlessly on mastering the concept of perception and drawing inspiration from Scottish Landscapes.
