“Engage, Inspire, Achieve”

Year 5

We have been learning some techniques which will help us to solve tricky questions in Maths. We have looked at doubling and halving to help solve tricky multiplication questions and learning the rules of divisibility so that we can quickly identify which numbers can be divided.

In English this week, we have been learning about recount writing. We have given the children wide experiences of different recounts to familiarise themselves with what is expected when they write their own next week.

During computing, we have been developing our spread sheet skills using the 'how many' tool to calculate the number of vowels in words.

Today was Saxon Day in year 5 - we began the day by finding out about the Saxons, playing Saxon games and investigating Saxon artefacts.

Year 5 & Year 3 team up for Roald Dahl Day to share their BFG and Fantastic Mr Fox writing.

Daily Exercise Year 5 and Year 6 - throwing and catching skills

Reminder: please can you ensure all the girls have socks in their PE bags.

Spellings this week have been copied out in to their diaries so that children can continue to revise once homework books have been handed in. 

Maths manipulatives

Today we used manipulatives in maths to help us solve problems involving negative numbers. 

We had a very interesting discussion around rights and responsibilities during PSHE and whether or not everyone should have equal rights. What would it be like if we did not have any rules?

 

We had great fun in a dance workshop today.

We have had a great start to year five and would like to thank all the parents for the individual copies of the BFG which has made guiding reading much more accessible and the children are able to engage in the text much more.  We are looking forward to seeing you at the curriculum evening tomorrow night (Tuesday 10th September).  In maths we have been looking at place value of numbers up to 1,000,000 and the children have been using the manipulatives to help them to achieve this.  In PSHE the children began looking into knowing some of the things that help them in school to learn and play well together. Today we began our science topic on materials with an experiment all about dissolving. Please see pictures below.
