Welcome to Year 5 2022!

 

This is the place where you will find out about what we have been up to in class, information about work and routines and also pictures of our fab pupils learning.

 

The page should contain all of the information you should need throughout the year and includes a box where you can contact school if you have any questions. We hope you enjoy looking through and seeing what your children have been up to and also 

that you find the resources provided helpful and useful.

Times Tables 

During our assessments it has become apparent that some of us in Year 5 are still finding our times tables challenging. This is something which we practise in class but something which children need to take responsibility for out of school as well. Regular use of TT Rockstars, Times Tables games on Purple Mash or ‘old fashioned’ writing and chanting of tables will really help. Much of the maths work pupils will do in Years 5, 6 and beyond relies on times table knowledge being in place. Just 5 - 10 mins a day at home/in the car etc will really help. 

As a guide, children are considered to know a times table if they can provide an answer within 3 seconds to the question.

E.g 8 x 7 =

 

Practising the inverse is also really helpful.

Eg 6 x 8 = 48   so        48 divided by 8 =6 

 

Pupils should know their TT Rockstars/Purple Mash logins but please let me know if you need them.

MFL Day - Check out our amazing French Frames - full of adjectives to describe ourselves!

As part of our remembrance work Year 5 spent time thinking about the sacrifices made by others in wars gone by. We looked at some of the conditions in which soldiers fought, visited the memorial garden outside school and each picked a soldier to write for/about. We then visited the churchyard to examine some of the words and phrases on the gravestones and noted them down. We combined all of these things to create remembrance poems which will be displayed in class alongside our life size Tommy. Have a look at a few examples below. All of the children produced excellent and powerful writing.

Maths Town - A town based entirely on mathematical concepts. Year 5 created Times Table Tower, Roman Numeral Road, prisons made from prisms, power of ten(ts) campsite, estimation island, multiplication forest, houses made from square and triangular numbers, estimation island, bridges made from missing number sums and much more!
