Year 5

In class we have been learning how to find fractions of numbers and quantities. The website above is a fun way of practising this skill! 
Please remember to do your Maths Homework for Friday!

Here are the 'Times Table Songs' that we have been using in class to help us learn our times tables. You might want to use them to help you practise at home.

We hope that you enjoyed your first half term in Year 5! We enjoyed getting to know you all and learning lots of new and interesting things.

 

In case you want to do any further research into 'Our Solar System' above is the link that we were using in class.

 

 

 

Our Creative Curriculum topic this half term is 'Why is Brazil in the News again?'. Can you find any facts out about Brazil before you come back to school?

 

In Science this half term we will be learning about forces. We will be doing lots of investigations, so it should be great fun!

 

This half term you will be doing some Design and Technology work. You might even be designing your own toy...smiley
