Hello and welcome to year 5W blog. Well can you believe it; we’ve finished the 3rd week of 6 week half term?
In maths we carried on working on factors. We were given some tasks/questions to explore and give a true or false answer. For example:-
All even numbers have an even number of factor pairs. After completing an investigation on the numbers 12, 24 and 36 (all even numbers) we concluded the statement was false because 12 has only 3 factor pairs (1&12, 2&6 and 3&4).
Following on from this we looked at square numbers (a number multiplied by itself) and cubed numbers (a number multiplied by itself and the answer then multiplied again by the same number). So 3x3x3= (3x3) x3= 9x3=27

In English we were introduced to a new writing format. It’s called talking for writing by Pie Corbett. Basically, we had to write a story with no help from Miss Power. The only things we were given was some images of a girl in rags, a girl in a beautiful dress and a glass slipper.
Following that, we read a brief story and had to draw a story board to help us remember it. We'll be doing more work on this next week.
