Year 5/6

Weekly Overview

In Maths the class have worked hard to progress onto ordering fractions before adding and subtracting both fractions and mixed numbers.

The class are making excellent progress with their daily multiplication fact speed trials. Now progressing onto mixed multiplication and division facts.

In English the class have analysed poems using personification. The poems were then used as a stimulus to create sentences, paragraphs then whole poems using personification.

In our SPaG sessions our focus has been on the use of hyphens and ellipsis.

Our early morning focus continues to be cursive handwriting.

The class continue to work hard in preparation for the Christmas production ‘Bethlehem’

The class are looking forward to the performance next month.
