Year 5

Welcome to Year 5

In Maths we have just started the topic of fractions. To help us find out about equivalent fractions we used cuisenaire rods to physically build a fraction wall and then use our wall to see which fractions were the same or equivalent.

Our e-cadets this term have been looking at searching the Internet effectively and safely. They then taught the class how to use keywords, +, and “” to improve our searches and also told us about some child friendly search sites to use .( KidRex )

In Maths we have been concentrating on place value, addition and subtraction. We have used lots of different games and pieces of equipment to help us solve problems and be able to give good mathematical reasons for our answers.
