Welcome to Eagle Class! (Year 5/6)

Mrs Hotchin (class teacher)  and Miss Morley (teaching assistant)

Our weekly maths overviews. Tasks will be set on MyMaths and other tasks are available on Mathletics.

Eagle maths week beginning 17.9.18

Y6- using negative numbers in context, solving problems involving large numbers and rounding.

Y5- using negative numbers in context, reading and rounding numbers to one million.

Eagle Maths week beginning 10.9.18

Y5- reading and writing Roman Numerals, rounding numbers to the nearest 10, 100, 1000, 10 000 or 100, 100000, interpreting negative numbers

Y6- rounding any number to the required degree of accuracy, interpreting negative numbers

English

This half term we shall be reading the novel 'Friend or Foe' by Michael Morpurgo, which tells the story of two boys' evacuation during World War 2. We shall then be researching further into evacuation, and comparing other people's experiences before writing non chronological reports about it, and writing in role as evacuees.

In our spelling/ vocabulary sessions, we investigate spelling rules and patterns. Spellings will continue to be sent home, please ensure your child practises these and applies them in writing. All lists are available on the Spelling Shed website : www.spellingshed.com

In addition to our English sessions, we have a daily whole class reading session. Reading fluency and stamina is vital in Y5 and 6, and we strongly encourage the children to read daily to continue to improve this and further expand their vocabulary and understanding.  We will visit the school library once a week to change books.

•use negative numbers in context, and calculate intervals across zero

solve number and practical problems that involve all of the above

  • Written calculation methods for the four operations.

Y5 objectives

Y6 objectives

•multiply multi-digit numbers up to 4 digits by a two-digit whole number using the formal written method of long multiplication

•divide numbers up to 4 digits by a two-digit whole number using the formal written method of long division, and interpret remainders as whole number remainders, fractions, or by rounding, as appropriate for the context

divide numbers up to 4 digits by a two-digit number using the formal written method of short division where appropriate,

•solve addition and subtraction multi-step problems in contexts, deciding which operations and methods to use and why

•solve problems involving addition, subtraction, multiplication and division

We also have daily arthmetic sessions which focus on basic number and calculation skills,including TT Rockstars.

Please check out My Maths tasks which are set weekly and relate to current learning. TT Rockstars is also a fantastic website to practise times tables.

Theme 'We Will Remember Them'

In the first half of this term we shall be researching what life was like for children during World War 2, and the impact of evacuation. We shall also be investigating what the 'Home Front' was and how people had to adapt their lives to help do their bit.

In art we shall be developing our embroidery skills to create poppy designs. In DT we shall be looking at and trying out recipes used in World War 2 in  order to create a recipe book.
