Year 5 Blog

Week beginning 17.06.24

Dear parents and carers,

We are now in full flow for the KS2 Production. Year 5 have been creating their dance and practising some of the other songs they need to know. We have attached a link which the children can use at home- there are a lot of lyrics to learn!

In maths this week we have moved onto our shape unit. The children created a cube, to help them learn faces/edges and vertices and apply this knowledge to other 3-dimensional shapes. They have also been grappling with ‘translation’.

All children completed their plan for their formal report. We had great fun on Tuesday starting with a basic sentence, using whiteboards to up-level with formal language and technical vocabulary. We hope that their reports show just how far their writing journey in Year 5 has come.

This week, we looked at National Parks in America, particularly The Everglades in Florida, and how they are similar and different to our National Parks in the UK.

Have a lovely weekend.

The Year 5 Team
