We have continued our work on shape and the children have been finding missing co-ordinates after a shape has been translated and reflected.

Equal measures of hard work and fun have been on the timetable this week.
The children have received their test scores and we have worked through some of the tricky hot spots with them in class.
Year 5 pupils should be very proud of how hard they worked during assessment week.
