Year 5/6 - Abbey

Weekly Update (Week ending 10.5.19)


In English, year 6 children have been practising for their grammar and reading tests this week.

Year 5 have had their week dominated by their Bikeability course, out in all weathers learning how to ride on the roads safely.


In maths, we have been continued to develop our mental arithmetic strategies. Year 5s have learnt how order and compare decimals by saying how many tenths, hundredths or thousandths there are in a number. They have also learnt to turn a fraction into a decimal by converting into tenths, hundredths or thousandths first.


In other topic work, we learnt more about mountains and the circulatory system.. 


Please continue to sign reading diaries to confirm children are reading 5 times a week. Dojo points will be awarded for diaries signed and handed in on time on Thursday. Please also encourage children to write their own book reviews.


NO HOMEWORK - Please can year 6 children go to bed a sensible time on Sunday evening and next week so that they are refreshed and ready to do their best?


Next week………



We will be looking more at the refugee crisis and starting to put together a  debate and later a balanced argument.



In maths year 5 will look more at decimals. Year 6 will be revising and preparing for SATS tests.
