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 and Mrs. McCarthy
Maths: In the summer term, we have focused on :
-Understanding and calculating angles
-Translation and reflection of shapes
-Division word problems with tricky remainders
-Mental fluency and the 4 operations
We have carried out some maths assessments and will be working hard to plug the gaps that have been highlighted by these as well as moving on to topics that we have not yet looked at.
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.
Literacy: Summer term
Our final topic of this half term has been based on the book 'Monsterology'. The children have read, discussed and created their own non-chronological reports. It allowed great creativity and has been lots of fun!
Here are some of our finished pages:
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.
This term in Science, our topics are 'Life Cycles' and 'Living Things and their Habitats'. We have been carrying out practical investigations to investigate plants and had the opportunity to research some leading scientists. E.g. Jane Goodall and David Attenborough
This term, we will be learning about The Ancient Mayans.
We have been using a range of resources, investigations and research materials to find out about what life was like for the Ancient Mayans.
