One Childhood, One Chance

Friday 9th June 2023

Year 5 have settled straight into Term 6 and had a wonderful week of learning. Year 5 also showed magnificent courage to complete their Cognitive Ability Tests this week. These will be sent off to be marked and results will be with parents soon. 


In Maths this week, Year 5 have been looking at co-ordinates. We learnt how to find and plot co-ordinates on a one quadrant grid before progressing onto four quadrants and negative numbers in our co-ordinates. We then recapped translation and using co-ordinates to show the movement of shapes. Next week, we will be properties of shape and parallel lines.


In English, we have watched a YouTube short entitled 'The Piano', which is a melancholic story of an elderly man playing the piano and reflecting on his life as he does so. We used to emotive language to write a piece describing the opening of the video focusing on the eerie nature of the melody.


In our afternoons this week, we have competed our PSHE unit on Healthy Realtionships, focusing on the healthy relationships in our lives and how to maintain them as well as how to have and maintain healthy relationships online and what to do if the group chat turns nasty. We also completed our RE unit about groups in the local community. Next week, we will begin our Term 6 Thematic unit 'Kings and Queens'.
