This week in Year 5
Year 5 have continued to explore the Vikings. We have been using the book ‘Norse Myths’ to explore the different gods and goddesses that there were during Viking times. All the children have now created their own Viking gods. They have chosen a name and made an origin story. Both classes are now in the process of writing a biography about their gods.
In Maths, both classes have been focusing on multiplication and division. This week we have looked at factors and the children have found out that the number with the most factors under 100 is 96. All children have been working extremely hard on their timetable knowledge and Hockney class have thoroughly enjoyed racing to see who the multiplication champion is each day.
Year 5 have started a DT project where they are making a moving toy that includes a cam mechanism. Children have explored what cams are and how they can be used to make a toy move.
