Hello and welcome back to the Yr 5W blog; a week that has been a little different as Year 6 underwent their SATS. They can all take a sigh of relief now that they’re done. May we say a big well done for your efforts and we wish you every success.
This week, as in Years 2 and 6, was used for assessment. We completed a few papers in order to see if we have grasped various concepts.

In English we carried on writing our imitation myth, mirroring the Theseus and the Minotaur story but with slight changes.
We also did SPAG activities which as you know; stand for spelling, punctuation and grammar. This included work on main and subordinate clauses. Here’s an example:
Alana, who had lovely shiny hair, was never late for school.
In this sentence ‘Alana was never late for school’ is the main clause as it makes sense on its own. ‘Who had lovely shiny hair’ is the subordinate clause as it gives extra detail to the main clause and doesn’t make sense on its own.
Did you Know the month of May is named after the Greek Goddess Maia, who was the mother of Hermes.?
