Working with larger numbers

Following on from our En Ville unit, Y6 children have been introduced to larger numbers.  They have worked together to order them correctly.  Played dominoes to help them recognise which words matched the digits and played speaking games to practise the new vocabulary.

Cross Curricular MFL

Y5 topic for Spring 2018 is Earthlings.  We took the opportunity to make cross curricular links with MFL as the Y5 Unit is The Planets.

 

The children worked on writing simple, and then more complex sentences.  They have included correctly placed adjectives (colour, size, temperature, movement and distance from the sun) and simple conjunctions.

Following a Recipe

Year 5 have been looking at sentence building and paying particular attention to word order.  Using scrambled recipes they put the instructions for Christmas biscuits in chronological order and identified imperative verbs.

Looking at French Christmas Traditions and Comparing Cultures

The children look at the differing traditions and celebrations in France and compare them to our own.  They learn that St. Nicolas and Père Fouettard play an important role delivering their 'gifts' to French children.  They also learn about the dates that are important in French culture during the Christmas period, including La St. Sylvestre and Le Reveillon.
