Dear parents,
Here’s our weekly update:
1. Math: We are working on Unit Four ‘Multiplication and division of fractions and decimals’. You can find helpful math tips for the new unit G5 Unit 4 Topic B Newsletter, G5 Unit 4 Topic C Newsletter and G5 Unit 4 Topic D Newsletter. The focus continues to be on a deep conceptual understanding of what happens when we multiply and divide fractions.
2. Language: In class we are working on creating, editing and practicing our persuasive speeches. Students have picked topics that they have a strong opinion about and selected materials for research. Soon we will be presenting our final speeches in class and selecting the speeches that will be presented at our KidTalk.
3. UoI: In our UoI unit, ‘Where We Are in Place and Time’, students have been working on technology timelines, exploring what technologies were invented throughout history. They are selecting technologies, the histories of which they are going to individually research. The active vocabulary for the new unit can be found here. Students will be researching how we got to now.
Best regards,
Grade 5 Team
