This Week’s Learning

Maths

This week in maths, we have been looking at related number facts that we can use to multiply and divide. For example, if you know that 70 x 8 = 560, we can also create: 560 ÷ 8 = 70, 560 ÷ 70 = 8. Next, we used our multiplication facts to solve formal written methods of multiplication.

During Maths Day, we took part in a range of fun activities. These included: a fashion show of our problem solving t-shirts, a treasure hunt and creating a times tables song or rap. Here are some photographs from our day.

      

Topic

We have had a busy week, exploring the different cultures across European countries. This included learning about religions and the education systems. Following this, we then explored what democracy is and how it has changed over the years. The week ended with a debate, where we argued our views on the topic ‘Should Britain be in the European Union?’ We definitely have some budding Members of Parliament in Year 5!

  

Anti-Bullying Week

This week was Anti-Bullying week and we celebrated this by thinking about how we are all different but equal. In our assembly, we discussed how bullying makes others feel and we thought about who we could talk to if we wanted to share a concern. We also thought about the actions we could take to prevent bullying. We learnt that our school is very much like a cake, where all the unique ingredients are equally important, just like us! In class, during Health and Well-being, we discussed stereotypes and did some role play of how to challenge stereotypes and bullying.
