The Big Draw in Y5

admin on: Class 5

In Year 5 this afternoon, we took part in our creativity and wellbeing themed Big Draw. The children had a variety of drawing activities that were designed to help improve their wellbeing. They were given large pieces of card which they have taken home. If they would like to continue filling them with different drawing tasks, here are some more for them to try at home:

Draw your house from a bird's eye view.

Find something big to draw (such as a building, ship or landscape) and draw it as small as you can.

Pick a book at random, open it to page 50 and draw what you read on line 6. 

Find something small to draw (such as a button, insect or flower) and draw it as large as you can.

Draw your journey to school.

Draw a plant everyday for 2 weeks and see how it changes.

Draw your dream as soon as you wake up. 

Draw something seen through a microscope.

Homework due 18.10.19

admin on: Class 5

This week's Mathletics homework is on short division (a recap from last year) and long multiplication which the children tackled this week. As long multiplication is new learning this week, it may take some practice! I would recommend having a pencil and paper available to help with the written method.

The spellings are the same as last week. A few children found these tricky this week, so definitely have another look at them!

Have a great weekend!

admin on: Class 5

7th October 2019

It is World Mental Health Day this Thursday and we are going to be raising money for Young Minds, a charity which supports young people with their mental health. It is a key focusing point on the School Governments agenda to promote the health and well-being for children in school. The Minister of Health and Well-being, the Chancellor of the Exchequer and Miss Hemingway will be selling yellow ribbon badges for 20p on Wednesday and Thursday break times. We ask the children to then wear them on Thursday to show their support.All proceeds will be donated to Young Minds. Here is a link to the Young Minds website: https://youngminds.org.uk/

Look out for staff wearing yellow on #HelloYellow Thursday!

admin on: Class 5

The Mathletics homework this week is on factors and multiplying/dividing by 10/100/1000. These are both areas of maths we have looked at this week. Ask your child about the 'left for larger and right for reducing' rule.

The spellings are: Miserable, reliable, adorable, believable, enjoyable, understandable, comfortable, changeable.

Well done to Class 5, who achieved the most amount of Mathletics certificates this week. Keep it up!

Have a fantastic weekend!

Homework due Friday 4th October

admin on: Class 5

The Mathletics homework is on two areas we have looked at this week: rounding and multiples.

We have done a lot of work on rounding this week, as it does get difficult with larger numbers! Ask your child about the method we used this week, it does simplify it a little!

The spellings are the same as last week:

Horrible, terrible, visible, possible, sensible, responsible, credible, edible.

Also, a reminder that reading at home is part of the weekly homework. I have just finished reading The Boy at the Back of the Class, which was a great read. A few of the children have read it as well, and it has been nice to discuss it with them! I'm going to give Kid Normal by Greg James and Chris Smith next. 

Have a great weekend!

Unfortunately, I am having trouble getting onto Mathletics! If the children could please have a go at written methods for addition and subtraction and I will assign the activity once I can get on.

Thanks,

Climate Crisis Protest

admin on: Class 5

20th September 2019

Today we supported Greta Thunberg and other school children across the country by participating in the Global Earth Strike. This is raise awareness of global warming and promote natural climate solutions. From 11.45 to 12 pm years 4,5 and 6 went outside and peacefully sat on the playground in solidarity listened to the natural beauty surrounding us. We watched a video that Greta made with George Monbiot about the climate crisis. Here is a link if you would like to view it:

Homework for this week (due 20.9.19)

admin on: Class 5

Good morning!

The homework on Mathletics this week is based on partitioning numbers (splitting them up) in different ways. We have been looking at how to do this in maths this week as it helps with mental addition and subtraction.

For example: 43,567 + 700.

A lot of children will try to add the '7' to the '5' in the hundreds column. They will get the answer 12 so will put a '2' in the hundreds column but they don't always remember to add the 1 to the thousands column. 

So if we look at the number in a different way, it can help remove this mistake.

43,567 might have 5 hundreds in the hundreds column, but it actually has 435 hundreds overall. So if the children see this as 435 hundreds add 7 more hundreds they should get to the answer of 442 hundreds. Once they know they have 442 hundreds, they can simply put the tens and units back in. 

So then its 442 hundreds, 6 tens and 7 units which equals 44,267.

It is just one way to do mental addition and subtraction and is another tool for their maths belt! The Mathletics task will be asking them to look at numbers and say how many thousands/hundreds/tens there are overall. 

There is also another task on practising their times tables to make sure they are back on track from last year.

A reminder that the spellings are the same as last week. The children performed well in the spelling test last week, so they just need to keep it up for the test next week. The words are: Thumb, crumb, doubt, climb, tomb, numb, debt, comb. 

Have a great weekend!

Welcome to Class 5

admin on: Class 5

Welcome back! It's been a great first week in Class 5 and we've been able to hit the ground running quickly, considering we all know each other!

As I mentioned in my curriculum letter, spellings this year will be in a 2 week cycle where we test the children twice on the same words. This gives them the opportunity to really solidify those spellings in their minds and ensure they are spelling them correctly in their writing as well.

The spellings this week follow the 'silent b' rule and are:

Thumb, crumb, doubt, climb, tomb, numb, debt, comb. 

The first test on these words will be on Friday 13th September.

The homework for maths this week will be on our new homework system: Mathletics. This week there are three tasks on place value. The great thing about Mathletics is that when the children log on, it will automatically take them to the homework tasks. The children's login for Mathletics is in their planner. The link to Mathletics is: https://login.mathletics.com/

There are hints and tips to help the children complete their homework if they are stuck.

If would like to contact me, please email me on liam.kershaw@netherthongprimary.co.uk
