Year 5 Weekly News
Number Day 1st February 2019: Dress up for Numbers for a suggested donation of £1.
PE every Wednesday afternoon. Please ensure children have the correct PE kit in school.
Year 5 children are expected to read for at least 10 minutes every day and hand in their reading record daily.
Learning this week:
In English, we have continued to read ‘Odysseus’. We have written our own character descriptions based on a Greek hero. The children researched different Greek heroes and used this as inspiration to create their own. Next week the children will be writing a diary extract based on the ‘Land of the Dead’.
In Maths, the children have been identifying prime numbers, prime factors, factors, squared and cubed numbers. Next week the children will be adding and subtracting fractions.
In Topic, the children have continued to investigate the rocks collected on the beach and looked at which type of rock was the most porous. They investigated how the grains of a rock impact how porous it is.
As part of the NSPCC’s Number Day on 1st February there will be a break time maths themed cake sale! For your child’s home learning we invite you to design and create maths themed cakes to help with our cake sale. For example, different shaped cakes or cakes with maths related toppings -be creative! We ask, if you do this, that you bring these in from January 30th to February 1st to your class teacher or to Miss Lane’s Classroom (Team Indigo).
My Maths: Please see your child’s account for their My Maths home learning.
SPaG: Research how apostrophes have been used incorrectly and how this changes the meaning of a sentence and why. Example is shown in the attachment.
