Year 5 update W/C 2/10/17

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

This week we have been working really hard on our place value, in particular rounding and partitioning numbers. We have also been learning about prepositions and learning more about legends. Each class is engrossed in our topic of 'The Invaders' and our science work on the solar system. Some children have even taken it upon themselves to do some extra research at home. 

What is happening this week? 

Maths - We will continue our work on place value with our focus being towards larger numbers. We will be aiming to round numbers up to at least 100,000 and possibly even as far as 1,000,000. 

English - We will be drafting, writing, editing and publishing our own legend stories, really emphasising understanding of past tense and prepositions. 

Spellings - Our spelling pattern will continue to be -ible (Please refer to previous update for example words using -ible).


All classes have been asked by teachers to bring in cereal boxes as part of our topic work durng Deanfield week. We will be doing lots of arty activities for the part of the week children are not on residential so save up those cereal boxes and please start sending them in. Thankyou in advance.
