Welcome to 5T!
Our class teacher is Miss Taylor and our teaching assistant is Mrs McLaren.
This half term in English, we are reading :
Gunnar is the son of a Viking chieftain, living peacefully on his family steading with his mother, father and their people... until they are raided by Skuli and his Wolf Men, who raze his home to the ground and take his father's life. Gunnar swears an oath to avenge his father's death and save his mother from Skuli. But first he must run to save himself. Murderous raiders, hand to hand battles to the death, mythical flying wolves and a relentless sea journey to the Land of Fire and Ice... Unknown to Gunnar, his life has been foretold, and he finds he has a destiny greater than his own story.
To begin the year we will be looking at the place value of numbers, working with numbers up to 1,000,000. This will include using different apparatus and pictorial representations before working with more abstract problems.
We will then progress to addition, subtraction and multiplication and division after half-term.
Throughout all lessons, we continuously work on improving our fluency, reasoning and problem solving skills in order to secure and deepen our understanding of different concepts.
We will be practising times-tables on a daily basis. If your child is fluent with times-tables (including related division facts) please extend them by multiplying by powers of 10. For example: 8 x 7 = 56 or 8 x 70 = 560
