Welcome to Chaucer Class! We are a happy bunch of lively learners based at the top of the stairs in Year 5.
This term we have already made a great start into our topic; ‘Wonder’ where we are studying the book by R J Palacio. Within our topic we will be exploring whether it is best to blend in or stand out and exploring the term ‘ordinary’. We’ve met lots of the characters already – including Auggie, the protagonist, and have begun empathising with them to understand the choices they have made and explore what it’s like to be a child, especially one who is starting a new school and is a bit different to his peers.
We look forward to sharing our book study with you at our Learning Outcome, plus the linked artwork linked to the impressionist style.
In maths we have been exploring number through place value and comparing numbers through use of symbols and by ordering.
Our class has two teachers; Mrs Wallis starts the week and then Mrs Mill’s joins us on Wednesdays until Fridays. We’ve already had a great start and we’re looking forward to continuing the year and our learning with you.
