This week in year 5 we have been starting are Amazing Anglo Saxon topic. We have been learning about the sory of Beowulf. It was originaly a poem but it was converted into a story because it was so long.
In maths this week we have been learning about measures and converting imperial measurements into metric measurements. Yesterday we stood around a table and Mrs Whittingham poured some liquid into a pint glass and Mrs Whittingham said two pints is a litre so if we had 4 pints we would have two litres. Mrs Whittingham also measured the weight of rice and skittles in diffrents tubs. Then we said the skittles were heavier but it turnes out that they weighed more because of the tub.
On Tuesday we did cricket with Amal our cricket teacher. We practised our skills of bowling. We also played a match with one team batting and one team fielding then we swapped.
