Fabulous Year Five!
Welcome to Year 5's class page! Here you will find information about our fantastic learning, experiences, class information, homework and any other news. Enjoy! Miss Hope, Mrs. Hughes, Mrs. Khajuria, Mrs. McCarthy and Mrs. Butterfield.
Maths: So far, we have been consolidating and extending our learning about place value.
We have been rounding numbers and adding and subtracting numbers above and below zero.
We are testing times tables on a weekly basis, so please practice fast recall of one of the times tables to help you with this!
To support your child's Maths at home - please use the Mathletics website. This is a really engaging resource for the children to use where they can play games and listen to times tables tunes! We really recommend it :) Each child should have a login and password. (These should be inside the new Reading Record books) If you require another copy of this, or encounter problems, please let us know.
The Iron Man
We read The Iron Man by Ted Hughes and wrote diary entries from his point of view to retell the story.
We had to include:
- emotive language
- first person
- informal / chatty style
- fronted adverbial phrases
- detail to engage the reader
Attached is the National Curriculum document containing the year 3/4 and year 5/6 spellings for children to learn throughout the year. Every couple of weeks some of these spellings will be set for spelling homework.
Homework - class projects
If the children are given any project based homework such as preparing a presentation, you can send the homework to the email address below. Please mark it for the attention of Miss Hope or Mrs. Hughes.
We had a fantastic day at Whipsnade Zoo on the 20th September.
We investigated habitats and diets of a HUGE range of animals and even got to stroke a python!
We used our detective skills to look at a range of skulls and had to deduce if the animal was a predator or prey and what type of food it ate... It was great fun!
This term, we are learning about Ancient Greece..
The topic work alternates with Art this term, so 5DH are currently developing their historical skills, whilst 5SH are experimenting with shades and tints in painting.
Watch this space for examples of our work...
