This week, we have been learning how to use the Area Model for multiplication. We found this model a little confusing at times, however with persistence and resilience, we all succeeded in understanding this new model! Julia, in 5L, showed great enthusiasm when approaching this new method. Her accuracy and eye for detail is quiet clear in her fabulous presentation! Well done, Julia!
This week, we have been looking at multiplying 2 digit numbers by 2 digit numbers. Lucas has used the correct expanded column method taught this week to solve his problems. He has been working extremely hard on all Maths tasks. Keep up the good work Lucas! Well done, from your teachers in Year 5
This week, we had fun exploring our new unit of work in Maths, which was measuring! We have worked hard to identify what regular and irregular shapes are, and how these affect the strategies we use to calculate perimeter and area. Later in the week, we learnt about compound shapes. When measuring the area and perimeter of compound shapes, we used the same strategies we used when looking at irregular shapes! Ernests, from 5L, loved this unit of work. He enjoyed revisiting his prior knowledge of measuring perimeter and area, and applied this when calculating the area and perimeter of regular, irregular and compound shapes. Well done, Ernests and Khobaib
This week in Year 5, we have been multiplying and dividing numbers by 10, 100 and 1,000. Both Lucas and Amarpreet have clearly set out their work using a Place Value Chart and counters showing what happens when you divide a number by 10, 100 and 1,000. They have used arrows to clearly show which direction the counters move when dividing. Lucas and Amarpreet have taken their time and set their work out neatly. Well done, Lucas and Amarpreet! From your teachers in Year 5
