We’ve had a busy week in Year 5 with lots of exciting learning opportunities.  We are totally gripped by the story of  Holes and have explored the character of Stanley this week while considering his thoughts and feelings.

In IPC we’ve focused on growth vs fixed mindset and have agreed that having a growth mindset helps us to become more effective learners. We enjoyed experimenting with different mindfulness activities and have lots of strategies up our sleeves to help us relax and be calm.

Our Maths learning has focused on mental addition strategies and we’ve been discussing how to apply the number facts that we already know to help us solve addition problems involving bigger numbers. We really enjoyed putting our thinking caps on today  and developing our resilience and enquiry skills while solving addition puzzles and problems.
