If you have any suggestions for our class page, please let Mrs Adams or Mrs Grimley know!

It is so important you know your times tables at speed and out of order.  Don't forget the division facts too! Click on the picture to challenge yourself. 

So far this term, we have learnt all about place value; we explored 7 digit numbers! We are moving onto the written methods for addition and subtraction and applying these to different problems.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Last term, we learnt about the tricky letter string 'ough,' which can be seen in words such as cough, dough, although and thorough. We have learnt lots of ways to practice these spellings, such as putting them into silly sentences or playing 'pyramid words.'

We have also looked at words with silent letters! Have a go at the games below to practice these words. Remember to practice at home to become a spelling superstar!

We are moving onto using the hyphen to join a prefix with a root word and will explore how to use an apostrophe correctly to show possession.

   

 

Author Studies

This term, we are reading all about the trials and tribulations of Percy Jackson, as he attempts to live life normally whilst keeping a special secret. We have seen how much trouble he can get in at school but there may just be a reason as to why he can't contain his anger and why he vaporized his teacher. 

Have a look at the video and see how the author, Rick Riordan, was able to create the character of Percy. 

Don’t forget to read at home.  It is better to read little amounts but often rather than all at once. You should be able to answer questions about the text that you are reading also. Please get an adult to sign to say you have read and bring it in at least once a week.

Class 5 had a scrumptious start to the year by exploring the wondrous world of Roald Dahl, in celebration of what would have been his 100th birthday. On Tuesday, we dressed up as a famous Roald Dahl character! Have a look at our fabulous costumes below! Thank you for your amazing efforts.

This term, our topic is 'Stone Age to Iron Age.' We have already learnt some amazing facts about this fascinating period of history and we have chosen to read 'Stig of the Dump,' by Clive King, which is about a young boy who befriends a 'cave-boy.'

Throughout the next few weeks we will find out about how these people lived and communicated and we hope to create our own examples of cave art!
