Friday 16th November

This week, we have continued to look at Naledi and Tiro and how their actions and speech can influence our decisions about each character as readers. We have worked very hard on inferring information throughout the book along with summarising at key points of the story.

In Maths, we have continued to look at factors, multiples and prime numbers. WE can now list all prime numbers up to 100!!! We have started to look at column multiplication and focused heavily on multiplying three and four digit numbers by 2 digit numbers.

This term in Y5H, we are travelling to South Africa!

We will be reading the novel Journey to Jo’Burg by Beverley Naidoo, creating a diary extract as one of the main characters Naledi as she travels to Johannesburg with her brother Tiro. We will be analysing the main characters – drawing on their appearance, actions and speech within the story.

In Maths, we are exploring multiples, factors and prime numbers and looking at common multiples and factors.

In P.E we are creating our own African dances along with developing our tactical knowledge at Tag-rugby. Our Design and Technology unit will see us design, create and evaluate our very own Africa masks!
