Y5 Weekly Update 26.5.23

Friday 26th May 2023 – Y5 Weekly Update

Looking back: 

It’s been a fantastic last week of the half-term – this year is absolutely flying by! In English the children have produced a wonderful poem about endangered animals living in South America – they then published this in neat for their geography books. In maths, the children have been learning how to use a protractor and have been measuring and drawing angles. In science, the children have been learning all about the life cycle of a mammal. 

Year 5 – Pupils’ Highlights:

  • It was thought provoking learning about why animals were becoming endangered in South America.
  • We have really enjoyed playing cricket in PE.

Family discussion questions:

  • Ask the children if they can tell you some top tips for measuring angles with a protractor.
  • Can the children remember any of the endangered animals they researched in geography?

Looking forward:

After half-term, we will be completing our South America topic in geography, before moving on to an interesting local area history topic. In maths, we will continue to look at angles, calculating missing angles and the angles within triangles and quadrilaterals. On the Monday, we will be doing some really interesting work about the Windrush Generation. 

I have updated the topics we will be studying next half-term on the class page. PE will continue to be on Tuesdays.

Enjoy the break!
