Here is the knowledge organiser to help with our fractions work. You will notice how important fluency with multiplication and division is – keep up your times tables practise!
Our last session until next calendar year. Thankfully, after storms and rainy days, the beautiful autumn sun shone on us today.
We modelled the solar system with blue tac, balls, fruit and measured with…toilet roll! The first four planets are relatively close together (within 15 sheets of toilet roll). However, Jupiter was 37 sheets further, Saturn another 44, Uranus add 98 and Neptune needed 100 more! Mind blowing.
Mercury = bean sized
Venus and Earth = grape
Mars = pea sized
Jupiter = football
Saturn = grapefruit
Uranus and Neptune = tennis balls
Learning about phases of the moon for part of our Science topic – Earth and Space.
Here is another knowledge organiser to help you with our current maths work.
Year 5 had some target practise last week with Freddy Fit with several competitions to see how many bean bags each team could throw into a bucket. We ended with a really intense workout.
Here you’ll find lots of information around place value – the building blocks of Year 5 maths.
We’ve had a fabulous morning of running, bouncing, climbing and sliding on the Treetop Nets in Heaton Park. We’d recommend it for a vigorous work out!
What a lovely end to a busy week! We all enjoyed our sporting afternoon: well done to the winners, but mostly to all of you for trying your best and having fun. Thanks to Mrs Hyde and Mrs Turner for all the organisation.
