Maths Assessment after February Half-term

 

On the first week back, there will be a maths assessment, based on the following objectives that were taught this half-term:

 

  • Adding and subtracting numbers mentally
  • Adding and subtracting whole numbers with more than 4 digits using columnar addition and subtraction

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

  • Using rounding to check answers to calculations and determine, in the context of a problem, levels of accuracy

  • Multiplying and dividing numbers mentally drawing upon known facts.

  • Multiplying and dividing whole numbers and those involving decimals by 10, 100 and 1000

  • Multiplying numbers up to 4 digits by a one or two digit number using a formal written method including long multiplication for two digit numbers

  • Dividing numbers up to 4 digits by a one digit number using the formal written method of short division and interpret remainders appropriately for the context.

  • Knowing and using the vocabulary of prime numbers, prime factors and composite (non-prime) numbers.

  • Establishing whether a number up to 100 is prime and recall prime numbers up to 19.

  • Problem solving involving all 4 operations in context of money and time.

  • Using all four operations to solve problems involving measure (for example, length, mass, volume, money) using decimal notation, including scaling.

  • Estimating volume [for example, using 1cm3 blocks to build cuboids (including cubes)] and capacity [for example, using water].

  • Converting between different units of measure (to include mm/cm/m/km; g/kg; ml/l). 

  • Knowing angles are measured in degrees: estimate and compare acute, obtuse, and reflex angles.

  • Drawing given angles, and measuring them in degrees (⁰)

 

What interesting ways can you revise/practise any of these objectives above? (MyMaths? Creating a poster or PowerPoint?)

Can you find real-life examples of any of them over half-term?

Y5 Viking Day - Wednesday 20th November

Please take a look at the costume information below. If you read the information which was put up a month ago, don't worry  - it's exactly the same!

Y5 Viking Day - costume information

This year the UN Convention on the Rights of the Child has its 30th birthday. We think this is worth celebrating! We want to find out what life was like before the CRC was adopted by the UN in 1989. You will do this by talking to people that you already know who may have been children or even adults in 1989, such as your parents, grandparents, aunts, uncles or other trusted people in your community. Mrs Adem has put some prompt questions below to help you. You must interview a chosen adult and then bring your answers back to school by Monday 25th November. You can present your work anyway you choose to, such as; making a poster, PPT presentation, photographs, video or just written question and answers. We look forward to sharing your work with the rest of the class and the school.

Monday 14th October 2019 - Shakespeare Theatre Performance

 

Below are some photos taken during the Shakespeare Workshop that Years 5 & 6 watched today. We took part in a fantastic version of Romeo and Juliet, which we all really enjoyed. Even though the actors used the proper Shakespearean language, we were able to follow the whole story. If you look closely, you might even spot Romeo dressed as Spiderman! It's Romeo and Juliet but not as you know it...

Viking Day

Viking Day will take place on Wednesday November 13th. We're going to be doing some fun Viking-type activities, including making our own shields and axes!

Please keep the cardboard coming - we need quite a bit more to make shields of around 40-45cm diameter. It should be thick cardboard of around this size. We can't use smaller boxes so please don't send them in. See the document below for information on making your own costume.

Three super scientists from Year 5 visited St Monica's for an amazing STEM day with a focus on robotics. For pictures and videos, please have a look at the STEM tab on the Science Curriculum Page:

Gears, Pulleys and Levers... In other words, Legoland day!

Y5 Visit to Legoland

Last Monday Y5 travelled by coach to Legoland. The children had lots of fun learning about forces by actually experiencing them on the rides and finding out more in a one-hour workshop. They behaved fantastically and everyone had a very enjoyable day. Thanks very much to all the parent helpers who came along.  Photos to follow....bit of a technical hitch!

Viking Day - cardboard appeal!

We need cardboard for our Viking Day, which will take place in the last week of the half term.

The aim is for each child to make a viking shield so we need cardboard which allows us to cut a 40cm diameter circle out. 

Please ask friends and neighbours if they have any spare boxes. Local shops also often get their deliveries in large boxes so you might be able to get a few, which would be great for anyone who can't find big enough pieces of card.
