Welcome to 5T's Class Page!
Maths homework will be set each Friday on Mymaths to be completed by the following Thursday.
Literacy homework will will also be set on the first news ihub each week.
Homework will start on Friday 14th September
For homework this week instead of MyMaths, we are asking the children to learn the first 12 square numbers. They will be challenged to recall them to a class teacher or LSA by Wednesday 17th October.
I have asked the children to complete the addition questions set. They can attempt the subtraction if they want to but our focus this week has been addition. In addition to this homework, I have also asked the children to spend 15 minutes on RockStar Times Tables. Please could you sign their reading record book to say they have completed 15 minutes.
I hope you all had a lovely summer holiday and the children are now well rested and ready to start year 5.
This term our topic has a space focus. In Literacy we will starting with poetry linked with space.
Mathematics will consist of place value, factors and multiples, written methods for the four number operations and fractions and decimals.

Photos of the activities we are completing in class will be updated on the class page.
In addition to reading and learning spellings, the practice of times tables is very important. By the end of year 5, the children need to know their times tables up to the 12 x 12. They will also be learning their subsequent division facts. Continued practice using Rock Star Times Tables would be very beneficial.
