Times Tables

Your child will be aware of the times table they should concentrate on learning this week.  If they are not sure, please ask them to check the board in their classroom.

These will be tested during our maths lesson on Wednesday.


Additional Tasks:

To be completed by Friday 29th April

  • Maths - Please complete the worksheet below (printed copies are available) to practice addition and subtraction of decimals. There is a photo on this week's newsletter to show you how to present your work.
  • English - Please write a kenning poem based on the topic of earthquakes. Remember the features of a kenning:
    • Phrases with two words
    • Words usually separated by a hyphen
    • Phrases made with a noun and a noun that's made from a verb
    • Phrases made with an adjective and a noun that's made from a verb


We would also like the children to continue to look for the most amazing adjectives (wow words) they can find during their reading.  Children should advise their teacher of their best word each Thursday so that we can announce our Year 5 "Wow word of the Week" in class on a Friday. (There may be a prize for the winner!)
