Years 5 & 6 Weekly Roundup

This week has been all about SATS for the Year 6 children!

They have all worked hard and I am very pleased with the effort they have made to try to achieve the best results they can. I am very proud of them. Well done Year 6!

They also completed their end of term Maths assessment.

As a reward there will be no homework from me this week-end.

Although they tell me that they have three exams next week in Spanish, Catalan and French, so they will need to study for those.

Year 5 have their end of term Maths assessment on Monday.

For homework Year 5 have some revision questions and an activity booklet on Venn diagrams to complete in preparation for this.

In Literacy we read some old style dialogue poems which used idioms and contained a moral. We looked at the idioms used in these poems and then completed an activity where we needed to match the idioms to their actual meaning.

For homework Year 5 have an activity where they need to find the origin of some of these idioms. They also have a spelling list to learn.

In Science Year 5 carried out an investigation with the irreversible change – burning. They compared the heating of many common materials, such as egg, butter, chocolate, and then identified what was formed.

In a cross curricular activity with topic both Year 5 and Year 6 created their own bronze vessel from clay using a design they had drawn, using images of ones from the Shang Dynasty as inspiration.

This was a very nice way to end the week.

I hope you have a lovely and relaxing week-end.
