New Zealand Class Year 5


During the past few weeks, we have looked at written methods for addition and subtraction in Maths as well as understanding the place value of decimals. We have started reading the Wizard of Oz as our class book and re-written the opening chapter as a newspaper report. Geography has seen us looking at mapping skills and understanding how to read an ordnance survey map. We’ve also looked at the location of Yeovil in Somerset, our neighbouring counties and where Yeovil fits into the wider UK map.


We’ve really enjoyed continuing our Iron Man art and used illustrator Chris Mould’s Iron Man drawings as an inspiration. Dodging the showers, we’ve moved from Basketball to Netball in PE.


All the children attending Mill-on-the-Brue are looking forward to the experience and those who are not coming will be taking part in a Design Technology project at Huish. We look forward to telling you all about it next time!

This term NZ class have been working on the story of The Iron Man by Ted Hughes. We've looked at the characters and retold the story in our own words. We've also linked our Art Topic to the Iron Man. 

We have been concentrating on place value and decimals in Maths and explored the Solar System in 


We enjoyed a PSHE workshop all about friends and what it means to be a good friend.
