Welcome to Spring term! This term our topic is 'Journeys'.

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

Eagle class maths week beginning 25.3.19

Year 5

• identify 3-D shapes, including cubes and other cuboids, from 2-D representations

• estimate volume

Year 6

• illustrate and name parts of circles, including radius, diameter and circumference and know that the diameter is twice the radius

Eagle class maths week beginning 18.3.19
Y6 : I can draw 2d shapes accurately; I can recognise, describe and build simple 3-D shapes, including making nets; I can calculate the radius/ diameter and circumference of a circle.
Y5: I can draw angles; I can identify 3-D shapes, including cubes and other cuboids, from 2-D representations.Eagle class maths week beginning 11.3.19

Y6- I can reason about angles. I can calculate the angles of different polygons. I can measure and draw angles accurately.

Y5- I can use facts about shapes to deduce missing angles and lengths. I can identify regular and irregular polygons. I can use a protractor.

Eagle maths week beginning 4th March:

Y5 and Y6 -I can calculate missing angles on a straight line, around a point and in a triangle

Y6 additional objectives- I can find missing angles in a quadrilateral. I can describe different triangles and quadrilaterals.

Eagle class maths, week beginning 25th February:
Y6: 
- I can solve problems involving the calculation of percentages and the use of percentage comparisons.
- I can find the missing value when given a % of the total.
- I can calculate % increases and decreases.
Y5
- I can solve problems which require knowing percentage and decimal equivalents of ½, ¼, 1/5, 2/5, 4/5 and those fractions with a denominator or a multiple of 10 or 25.

Eagle class maths, week beginning 11.2.19

Y5

• recognise the per cent symbol (%) and understand that per cent relates to ‘number of parts per hundred’, and write percentages as a fraction with denominator 100, and as a decimal

• solve problems which require knowing percentage and decimal equivalents of 1/2, 1/4, 1/5, 2/5, 4/5 and those fractions with a denominator of a multiple of 10 or 25.

Y6

• divide proper fractions by whole numbers

• associate a fraction with division and calculate decimal fraction equivalents for a simple fraction

• recall and use equivalences between simple fractions, decimals and percentages, including in different contexts.

• solve problems involving the calculation of percentages [for example, of measures, and such as 15% of 360] and the use of percentages for comparison

Eagle class maths week beginning 4.2.19

Year 6

I can divide decimals by integers.

I can solve problems involving decimals.

I can write decimals as fractions.

I can convert fractions to decimals.

Year 5

I can round decimals to the nearest whole number.

I can round to the nearest tenth.

I can solve problems involving decimals.

English

This half term we shall be studying two picture books: the first is 'The Water Tower' by Gary Crew and using this to inspire our writing of narratives; the second will be 'The Arrival. by Shaun Tan.  We shall be reading extracts from Steve Backshall's Deadly Diaries, which are memoirs of his travels across the world. Then we will read The Unforgotten Coat by Frank Cottrell Boyce, a tale of an immigrant starting a primary school in Liverpool.

In our spelling/ vocabulary sessions, we investigate spelling rules and patterns. Spellings will continue to be sent home as a new rule if investigated; please ensure your child practises these and applies them in writing. 

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.  All children have the opportunity in the week to change their library book.

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 'Journeys'

In the second half of this term we shall look at the contrasting areas within Africa, and compare and contrast school life in Ghana and Uganda with life here. 

We shall undertake a DT project to create African style instruments and in music learn simple African call and repeat chants.

In art we will look at the representations of journeys within Shaun Tan's book the arrival and look at the work of surrealist Escher, and also study Adrinka Patterns from Africa. 

Additional Information

PE- Sessions are on Monday, Thursday and Friday but please could kits be available all week just in case.

Journals are used as a reading diary and can be completed by the child or parent (or both) in Y5/6. They will be checked by the teacher on Friday.

Y6 children have CGP maths and SPAG books for weekly homework. This is set on Wednesday and should be returned the following Wednesday.  If your child has any difficulties with the homework, please let Mrs Hotchin know as soon as possible.
