Year 5 week beginning 7/3/16

This week in Literacy, we have begun our new learning topic…Legends! To start the week, we began identifying the features of Legend stories by comparing them to well-known Mythical stories.


This week in Numeracy, we continued to develop our knowledge and understanding of long division method. We also continued to recap our learning of quadrilaterals and angles.



We continued with out new topic – The Earth, The Sun and The Moon. We have had a great time continuing to investigate our topic question – Will we ever send another human to the moon?



Home Learning:

In year 5 we would like the children to be constantly practicing their times tables, number bonds, spellings and reading.

We suggest a minimum of 30mins of reading each day; this will consolidate strategies learnt in the class and ultimately make the children better and more confident readers.

It would be beneficial to practice number bonds at least three times a week. Number bonds are two number that add together to make another; for example 394+606, 8+2, 65+35.

We advise that the children need to practice their times tables regularly in order to support their knowledge and understanding when performing operations (times and divide).
