This week in Lincolnshire:

This week has been a shorter, but a fantastic week of learning in Year 5. In English, we have continued to read our book, ‘Danny Chung Does Not Do Maths’, and have read up to chapter 12. We recapped what a toolkit of a letter is and have written our own letter of advice to Nai-Nai. We swapped books and wrote a response to another class member's letter which was fun! In computing, we have focused on being safe when using technology and the internet. We are continuing our fascinating topic of the 'Shang Dynasty' and finding out more about what Ancient Chinese mysteries there are!

Need some help with learning your weekly spellings? Try using this spelling strategy:

 

Write each word on a piece of paper, cut up all the letters, jumble them and then rearrange them to spell the word correctly.  When you’ve done it with each word once, try it with three words at a time!

 

These spellings will be tested on Thursday next week.

 

Reading

Children in Year 5 should be reading for 30 minutes a day. This should be a combination of reading to an adult or independently.
