The Y5 play will be performed to parents on the afternoon and evening of 7th March. The performances will begin at 2:30 p.m. and 6:30 p.m. Please can every one keep practising their lines and get them learnt as soon as possible. The words for the songs are on the home work page so please try to learn them as well, especially if you have only a few lines to say in the play. Thank you for all your hard work.
Year 5 Homework
The main homework we're setting for half term is to make sure you have learnt all your lines for the play. If you know all your lines, then please learn the words for the songs. Thank you for your hard work.
Word of the week
Along with Year 6, every week we will, from now on, have a word of the week.
This week's word is superfluous. Below is the work covered in class which you can revise at home.
Read all the sentences first then write down what you think the word means and which class of words you think it belongs to - noun, verb, adjective or adverb?
There was so much food on the table, we could not eat it all. It was superfluous to our needs.
Isn't it superfluous to have twenty pairs of jeans when you only ever wear the same two pairs?
Writing more than the required 2000 words for the recount is superfluous.
Words that are related to superfluous: superfluously, superfluity
Can you write sentences using superfluous or the words that are related to it?
Message from Miss Saul to 5S
The next multiplication tests will be on Thursday 3rd February. Well done if you improved your score last week. It is very important that you keep practising because you will find a lot of the maths we do in Y5 easier if you know the times tables really well.
Children working on the multiplication marathon, instead of practising the speed grid I want you to concentrate on the 6 times tables and get to know it inside out. Use the sheet above for practice.
If you have already scored 144 on the multiplication marathon in less than 10 minutes, well done. Instead of the multiplication marathon, you will do Test 2, multiplying multiples of 10 e.g. 40 x 20, 300 x 6, 50 x 400 for which you will need to use your knowledge of the times tables and your understanding of place value. I have attached a new sheet if you want to practise at home.
If you have successfully completed Test 2 in 5 minutes or less without any mistakes, then move on to Test 3 which is about multiplying decimals by whole numbers and multiples of ten. All you need is a knowledge of the times tables and an understanding of place value. I have attached a practice sheet.
For those who have now mastered Test 3, move on to Test 4 which is division facts up to 144 divided by 12. I have attached a sheet below.
