Year 5 update W/C 16/10/17

What we have been up to and what is coming up.

This week we have continued to work hard on our place value, in particular adding and subtracting powers of 10 and ordering and comparing larger numbers using < , > and =. We have also been learning about determiners and finalising the publishing of our legend openers.

Can you answer these questions? 

What is 1002 - 10? 

Can you spot the determiner in this sentence? What about the preposition? Are there any adjectives, adverbs or fronted adverbials? 

On the grey carpet, a cat lay sleeping peacefully. 

What is happening this week? 


We can't wait. Group A will be leaving at 8:00am on Monday morning so please be here at 7:45am and remember you do not need a packed lunch.  Group B will be leaving at 8:00am on Wednesday morning so please be here by 7:45am and remember that you will need a packed lunch. Please be on time and make sure you check the kit lists. 

During the part of the week we are not at Dean Field, we will be taking part in enrichment activities based on our Invaders topic. A truly fun filled week. 


Children will be coming home with arithmetic homework this week. This is to be completed over half term and teachers will tell classes which day it is due back in after the holidays. 

There will be no blog next week but there will hopefully be lots of Dean Field photos. Have a lovely half term holiday.
