This week in Y5D we have been working really hard. In English we have been reading more of our novel ‘Journey to Jo’Burg’. We have been reading detectives and have picked out clues from the text about the main characters, Naledi and Tiro.
In Maths we have been using our times table knowledge to work out equivalent fractions. We really love Times Table Rockstars and are going to keep practising to know all our times table facts and division facts up to 12 x 12.
In Science we have begun our new topic ‘Properties of Materials’ looking at a variety of vocabulary linked to the topic and working out their definitions.
We have been developing our map reading skills in Geography, using atlases to create labels and keys to show continents, locate South Africa and mark cities surrounding Johannesburg, including the capitals Cape Town, Pretoria and Bloemfontein.
