This week children will demonstrate their skills when infering information from a text. We will focus on the above story as it links nicely to our topic, Time traveller
Homework books need to be handed in every Wednesday and will be returned to children on Thursday.
Children will have a homework bingo for the half term, weekly spellings with an activity in their boomerang books and an X Factor example to practice at home.
We have now set an activity on MyMaths
English: This half term, year five will be looking at adventure stories. These adventure stories will tie into our topic of Pharaohs, thus creating adventure stories with a historical setting. The children will look into the features needed, with the aim of using both their Connected Curriculum and English knowledge to write their stories.
Maths: In Maths, year Five will develop their skills and understanding about decimals. Children will begin to gain knowledge on the place value of decimals, as well as seeing the links with money problems. Fractions and percentages also link within this topic and is something the children can aim towards.
Connected Curriculum: This half term children will be delving into Pharaohs and Ancient Egypt. They will learn to understand the role and responsibilities the Pharaohs had as well as looking and researching about many famous Pharaoh's. Children will also have a chance to create Egyptian head wear (Nemes).
During our Maths lessons we will often be changing some groups around to try out new techniques to help the children in Year 5. If there are any issues, please contact the class teachers.
