TT Rockstars is here!

This week has seen the launch of the new and exciting maths website and app TT Rockstars in school. TT Rockstars is a great way for children to have fun with their times tables whilst increasing their confidence. Children will be using TT Rockstars in school but we would also like to encourage children to log on at home and play along with their Rockstar.

Year 5 Team

Nell Bank

Y5S had an absolutely amazing day participating in team building and brain-teasing activities. We worked incredibly hard to complete each of the challenges as a group. Here are some pictures of the adventures we had!

Space Art

Using mathematical equipment, the children were asked to draw the discovered planet before using a mixture of oil pastels and chalks to create an accurate representation of the planet as well as the atmosphere in outer space.

We have been using our knowledge of Factors to find all the common factors of 2 and 3 different numbers - We have investigated this in a practical way! See our learning here!

Virtual Reality

Year 5 really enjoyed using virtual reality headsets to journey through space and learn lots of new facts about the planets within our solar system. Children were able to compare each planet to earth and it gave them a fantastic insight into how other planets are different from earth
