Yr 5 Curriculum Update

We hope that you had an enjoyable and relaxing half term and that the children are ready for the final push towards the Summer holidays!

English

This week we have been looking at the famous Shakespearean text ‘The Tempest’.  The children have been discussing and evaluating how Shakespeare used language, including figurative language, considering the impact it had on us, as readers.  We wrote a descriptive piece about the island, that was visited by Miranda and Prospero, using the literary devices we had identified earlier in the week.

Maths

We completed our work on Place Value and Subtraction in the earlier part of the week, ensuring that the children had a thorough grasp of the formal methods that we are using.   Later in the week we have been working on shape. We have been sorting and classifying shapes using their properties.  We used a Carroll diagram to sort them into different groups and were becoming competent using this classification tool.
