Welcome to Spring 2 learning in year 5. This term we will be developing our suspense and tension writing through a book called The boy in the tower by Polly-Ho-Yen. We will be exploring problem solving techniques and continuing to work with fractions in maths and in Science we are learning about living things and their habitats. This will include looking at the functions of the parts of a plant and lifecycles. We are continuing to read our class novel (Cosmic) and we are looking forward to starting our new topic about our local area. Next week , we will go on a walk around South Oxhey and make comparisons using old photographs and maps.
