Welcome to Foxes!
Autumn 1- The Wild West
Welcome to Foxes class page. The children have settled well into Year 5 and have enjoyed getting stuck into our first topic - 'The Wild West'. We have placed ourselves in the early settlers and have learnt all about the treacherous journey along the Oregan Trail, discussed the best place to create a settlement as well as cooked some filling pasties for the journey. We have also taken on the role of Native Americans and are currently choreographing a dance in honour of the 'Great Spirit' and are enjoying creating dream catchers to trap bad dreams. We hope to upload some pictures soon.
In maths this half term, we will be focusing on place value. We will be looking at reading and writing numbers to 1,000,000 as well as rounding to the nearest 10, 100 and 1000. We will be learning to justify our answers by answering lots of reasoning questions and put to use the new maths vocabulary that we have been introduced to. We will continue to practice our times table knowledge to x12. Please check the curriculum resources page to find links to videos and websites that can help you with this.
