Keinton Mandeville Primary School

In English this week we are editing and publishing story based on the Highwayman, written from another point of view.  We will be working hard to edit our work for grammatical accuracy, for  correct spelling and punctuation.
In maths this week we are learning about subtraction. We will start by concentrating on mental skillls and move on to written methods.  We will also use addition skills learned last week to check our answers.

 Year 5 had a fantastic trip to Mill on the Brue!  We enjoyed canoing, the zip wire, team challenges and crate stacking. Check out some photos.




We have had a fantastic start to the school year.  Everybody is working really hard and we are determined to make the most of this school year.

We started the year by thinking about our class ethos and we came up with a few statements which we plan to follow through the year. They are:

Falcons dont give up

Falcons are kind

Falcons are good listeners

Falcons don't waste time

Falcons try their best.

Falcons show respect

Falcons don't say I can't, they may only say I can't yet!


Ancient Mayans

This half term's topic is The Ancient Mayans.  This past week we have learned about where and when the Mayans lived.
