Welcome to our Year 5 page. We had such a fun start to the year, but we are now already excited to continue into 2017 with hard work and fun along the way!  

This half term we will be working as Police Cadets, where we will be learning all about our community and how to show respect to all. Here are some pictures of us reporting to a RTC.

  

In English, we were reading the oh-so-creepy book 'Coraline' by Neil Gaiman. We hope that this will teach us all about how to build suspense and create tension in our writing. 

 In Numeracy our new targets are based on using mental strageties for multiplying and dividing, including multi-step word problems!

In Science, we looked at types of change. We will be doing all sorts of experiments to look at how different materials can change in different ways. Here are some pictures of us doing experiments last term.

In RE at the moment, we are looking at the season of Lent. We will be thinking about how Satan tried to temp Jesus, and think about the things we are tempted to do in our own lives and how Jesus might respond to these temptations. We have also made some Lenten promises....let's see if we can keep them!

In History, we are looking at the Vikings. We will be finding about who they were, where they came from, how they lived and the impact that they had on Britain. 

Homework Help...

Maths homework: 

This week we are looking at finding fractions of amounts. Remember, to find this, you must first divide by the denominator (bottom number), then times by the numerator (top number). 

E.g. 2/6 of 366 =

366 ÷ 6 = 61         61 x 2 = 122 

so 2/6 of 336= 122

 

Spag homework: 

In Spag we are looking at:

Relative clauses: are clauses starting with the relative pronouns who, that, which, whose, where, when. They are most often used to define or identify the noun that precedes them.

Relative pronoun: Relative pronouns introduce relative clauses. The most common relative pronouns are who, whom, whose, which, that. The relative pronoun we use depends on what we are referring to and the type of relative clause.

Subordinating conjunction: A subordinating conjunction joins a subordinate clause to a main clause. E.g. Before, after, as. 

Adverbs of Possibility: Some adverbs show how likely or something will happen. Never describes something that will not happen, not ever. Always describes something that happens all the time. Maybe and  perhaps are degrees of possibility in between never and always.

Determiners: Identifies a noun e.g. a, the, many, one, my, their

Modal verbs: Modal verbs change or affect other verbs in a sentence. They are used to show the level of possibility, indicate ability, show obligation or give permission. Modal verbs examples are: will, would, should.

Determiners: Identifies a noun e.g. a, the, many, one, my, their
