Another excellent week of Study Write 11+ Tuition

Another excellent week of Study Write 11+ Tuition across our Year 5 centres.

For our English focus this week, we analysed three paragraphs of a text for a range of language devices, commenting upon the use of the language devices. Alongside finding the language devices, the children worked on their inference and deduction skills to find the meaning of the text.

After unpicking the language devices, as a class, we moved on to look at the structural techniques used by the author in the text.

The children then shared their own second paragraph (the development) from last week’s creative writing task following on from the shared writing session.

In Maths, we focused on finding the volume of shapes, building upon the previous teaching of formulas for area, long multiplication and converting between units of measurements.

If your child is struggling with finding the volume of shapes, then check out the video below for an excellent explanation –
