Week beginning: 24.01.2022
This week in Year 5, we have been practising our division skills! We worked on dividing 2 digits by 1 digit, 2digits by 1 digit with remainders using partitioning and then using the formal written method to solve 4 digits by 1 digit. It’s important to be able to divide equally as we will need these skills in the future, especially if we would like to become a baker as they always need to divide up their ingredients and dough equally!
After working so hard on our sentence stacking last week, we began independently writing a narrative based on the plot points of Star Wars. We have been making sure to include all the features that we have been practising during our sentence stacking activities to level up our writing!
Using all the different techniques that we have learned in art, we have been working with a partner to create a fantastic collage of space! Combining our ideas and designs has allowed us to work collaboratively to use scrunching, rolling, twisting, folding and many more techniques with a variety of materials and colours.
Humans vs Robots! In our history lesson, we had a look at the history of robots in space and how effective they were during their missions. We discussed Robonaut 2, it was sent to space to take over the ‘mundane’ jobs that the astronauts were having to do instead of their important research, however the robot failed and had to be disabled as Nasa were unable to solve the problems with the robot to allow it to work successfully.
As part of our Dreams and Goals topic in PSHE, we have been discussing the importance of professions and a variety of careers. We all had a think about what our dream job/career would be when we are older and completed research to find out what qualifications we would need, the job description, the salary and what we would need to do to be able to achieve our dream job.
We are very excited about the future!
