Place Value

Friday 13 September 2019

Year 5 have had a brilliant start to the year in all areas of school! They have thoroughly impressed with their appetite for learning and improving.

For Maths in particular, we have been looking at place value. The children have been using an array of methods to support their learning.


We have been using Denes, number lines, bar-models, counters and part-whole models to really show off how many different ways we can represent numbers!

In another area of the curriculum, we have enjoyed diving into our new class novel – Marianne Dreams. This has been the main focus for our Art topic, where we have incorporated artistic techniques such as cross-hatching, stippling and gradient into our artwork.

Ask your child what media has been used in the pieces of art above!
