Year 5 Homework

Image result for year 5


Your last homework task for this year is to prepare an advert for the current Year 4 to tell them about all the amazing things they will be doing next year!

This is also a great chance for you to look back on all the trips and exciting topics we have done throughout the year. What has been your highlight? What do you think the new Year 5’s will enjoy the most and why?

You can do your advert/review on a poster or on google slides and let us have it during the last week of term.

Fiver Project

Year 5 are all very excited about the Fiver project and we have been working hard in our groups in 5DF this week to make a poster to showcase what we will be selling or what service we will be offering.

We have also now prepared our sales pitches which we showed to the rest of the class today…..Dragons Den style!

Who do you think did a good pitch? What products/services do you think will sell well?

We also have lots of other fun things happening so keep checking the blog and commenting so we can share our journey together!


Maths practise

This week in our Maths lessons we have been busy going over some key areas of our maths learning to revise our skills! So far we have looked at division, multiplying by 10, 100 and 1000 and today we worked in our co-operative groups on some fun word problems!

We really enjoyed writing out instructions and solving the problems together….
