Friday 11th January

Hello and a Happy New Year to you all! Welcome to Year 5W blog. We hope you’ve all had a wonderful Christmas and New Year but are refreshed and ready to get down to some work.


We started the week looking for the patterns that occur within a hundred square regarding multiples of 2, 5, 10, 3, 4, 6, 8 etc. We then explored the rules to finding whether a number is one of the stated multiples.

Did You Know?

A number is a multiple of 3 if, when its digits are added together they add up to a multiple of 3. eg. 276 is a multiple because 2+7+6=15 15 is a multiple of 3 (also the digits in 15 add up to 6) 6 is a multiple of 3.



We hit the ground running; learning a new sentence type, a Noun who, which, where. It is sometimes called a relative clause sentence. This is a sentence where commas are used to add extra information (a clause) that links with the sentence topic. The clause starts with who, which or where.

Example: My pet dog, who has ginger fur, loves to chase ducks.

We also did some work on our new class novel, the Jamie Drake Equation. We recapped and discussed what had happened in chapter one, then wrote a summary. Following that we did some vocabulary definitions of the words we found in our novel.


We looked at the different stages of development; what we could do as a new born baby, at about 4years old, now and when we are grown ups. We compared this to the developments of other mammals.



This was a very exciting lesson about friendships/healthy relationships. A visitor came into school to talk to us about what healthy relationships are. We have relationships with lots of different people; our family, friends, teachers, other professionals, coaches for sports and activity clubs and when we get a little older with a partner. Take a look at the pictures.

Pupil of the week….. Is Brandon for his dogged determination and Never giving up attitude; resulting in gaining another times table band. Well done keep going!



A belated Happy Birthday to Chloe, who celebrated her birthday on 6th January; we

hope you had a lovely day.


Well, that’s the first week done and we survived! See you all again on Monday.
