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

We hope you have a good half term .

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.

Pantomime fun was had by everyone as we all sang, danced, cheered and laughed our way through a showing of Robinson Crusoe on Wednesday afternoon.

Any spare time we have had this week has been spent practising for our Christmas Carol concert.

We hope you enjoyed it.

We have continued using the Tear Thief text to help build our skills in writing and have written some fantastic descriptive stories and emotive diaries.

In Maths the children have been learning how to collect and represent data in different ways.

We have not given homework to the children so they can spend time on their Passport to Learning projects instead.

Last week in Year 5 the children have been getting to grips with adding and subtracting numbers up to one million.

We have been looking at mental methods, as well as formal written methods to do this.

Creative writing skills have been put to the test in Literacy as we have been writing a poem based on this term’s text, The Tear Thief.

The children have produced beautiful poems which we hope to share with you on the open afternoon.

Please remind your child to bring a coat on Fridays as it is cold when we come out of swimming.
