Happy New Year and welcome back to Spring Term

This week in Year 5 we are continuing to study the Ancient Maya learning about their place in history and location in the world. As part of this Language we are practicing use figurative language to describe.
In Maths we have been looking and division and multiplication methods, and the importance of strong times table skills. Children are encouraged to use Times Tables Rockstars regularly to support with this
As part of the school computing curriculum Year 5 are using computers to program Raspberry PI boards with simple coding using a framework called Crumble. They have been changing the colour of RGB LED lights, powering simple motors and controlling functions using switches and buttons.
