An Excellent Start to the Second Half of the Spring Term

An excellent start to the second half of the Spring Term for the Year 5 centres this week due to the delayed start for a number of our centres due to the snow disruption last week.

For our English focus this week, the children have built on further from the Creative Writing Workshop, developing their skill to write further within the sessions.

All our wonderful language devices were recapped and how they should be used in their own stories.

Openers were created and homework set to work on introducing a character or developing their work ready to introduce the problem.

In Maths, we focused on finding the areas of compound shapes, building upon previous teaching of formulas for area, long multiplication and converting between units of measurements.

If your child is struggling with finding the area of compound shapes, then check out the video below for an excellent explanation –
