Mental Maths

We have looked at how to add and subtract fractions with different denominators.  We’ve used our understanding of multiples to do this.  Can you use your mental maths skills to quickly work out a common denominator for a pair of numbers?  e.g. 4 and 5, the lowest common multiple is 20.  Remember, the lowest common multiple isn’t always the product of both numbers.

Homework 15.11.17

Welcome to Barvember!

We have worked on using bar models to solve problems and this week, we are challenging you to show someone else!  We’d love to see you teaching someone else about bar models and whether you can challenge them in their mathematical thinking!  Feel free to reply to this with a photo or message or tweet me @Waddallsaint to show your awesome work!  We’d love to see resilience and maybe even very confused faces!

 

Spellings

This week, the spellings are very easy but you need to know how to use them as modal verbs to suggest possibility.

can

could

may

might

must

shall

should

will

would

ought

Can you write a sentence which is grammatically accurate and makes sense for each?  Think about what the modal verb does to the meaning.

Who’s that on TV?!

Keep an eye out for us on TV tonight and on BBC Lincolnshire Radio!  We have had such an amazing week working with so many different people as part of our ‘Waddington Remembered’ project and the memorial service at the IBCC.  We are so lucky to be able to take part in these services.  Thank you to everyone who made it all possible.

Half term battle!

Your homework over half term is to take part in the Times Tables Rockstar Battle, which we have set up between the Year 5 classes.

You need to just log in as usual and play either in a festival against others or scroll down and play in Garage/Arena with questions set by us or the studio/festival for a variety of questions.  Anything you score will count towards our band total.

Get rocking!

Scholastic Book Fair Competition

The bookfair is back in school next week during Parent’s Evening.  It will be available for you to browse and purchase books in the hall over both evenings.  We raise hundreds of pounds in books for the school through your continued support in this.

We would like the children in Y5/6 to take a reading selfie to be in with a chance of winning a £5 book voucher to spend at the fair.  It can be as unusual or exciting as you wish.  You can print them off and bring them in or email them to your teacher so that we can select a winner next Wednesday. Our email addresses can be found below.  Get snapping!
