29 Sep What’s been happening in Year 5 – Week 4
This week Year 5 have been building further on their scientific understanding of life cycles. We used secondary sources to research and compare the life cycle of different mammals, including dogs, humans and kangaroos. We then used a Venn diagram to sort the similarities and differences between the life cycles of mammals and birds, which we learnt about in previous lessons.
In maths, we have been using place value charts to add and subtract numbers with more than four digits, before we move onto using the column method. This helps to secure our understanding of place value and exchanging.
