Class 10

Welcome to Class 10!

The Class Teacher is Miss Jukka

The T.A. is Mr Coupland

This is our new class display. When children use their gifts and talents, they shine before others.This allows them to help themselves and others to grow.

Hello and welcome back to another brilliant term at St. George's. We are so happy to have you all back in school in something that look a little bit more normal!

 

Below, I have included some really important bits and pieces to help you to understand our timetable, our learning for the year and our UKS2 Newsletter for the Advent term which gives some key information about our learning this term! I have also popped on a One Page Profile all about our class, your journey into the classroom and the staff that will be working in class with you.

 

If you have any questions, queries or concerns, please contact me on our class email address which is class10@stgeorges.derby.sch.uk I will do my very best to respond to you as quickly as I can (and definitely within 48 hours) but please note that I will be unable to respond within the school day so if your query is urgent, please contact the office in the first instant and they will get a message to me.

 

We're so excited about our new class and the fun that we'll have together this term.

Miss Jukka & Mr Coupland

Reading

 

Reading is so important for us to learn. We can find out about lots of exciting things. Whatever topic you enjoy whether it is: space, the Greeks or Great Britain, you can learn everything there is to know about it through your reading. 

 

Delve into a great story and be taken away to a different land! Stories also help our imagination and creativity. 

 

Please try to read at least 5 times a week and fill in your reading record to bring in on Monday. It will help help set you up with the skills and knowledge to learn to your full potential!

Big Maths

In maths, we are using column methods for the four operations. Here are some examples:

 

Addition:

Always line the digits up using place value

Don't forget to add the carry overs

Always write the addition symbol so that you don't forget your calculation

 

 

Subtraction:

Always line the digits up using place value

Always write the subtraction symbol

If you cannot take one number from the other, borrow one from the next column.

 

 

 

Multiplication:

Always line the digits up using place value

Always ADD the carried numbers

When you are multiplying by 2d number, always put the place holder '0' to help you multiply by the tens digit.

If you are multiplying by 3d number , always put two place holder '0's to help you multiply by 100.

 

 

 

Division:

If there is a remainder, carry it over to the next column

Use your times table facts to help you divide each digit

 

 

Long Division:

Long division works by dealing with the largest column 1st - in the case below the 8 (800).

How many times does 4 go into 8? ... from the 4 times table ..2 x 4 = 8. Write the 2 above the 8 and the result, 8, is written below the 8.

 

 

Work out the remainder by subtracting 8 from 8, 8-8=0 Now bring the 5 down to make 05 the next number to divide into.

 

How many times does 4 go into 5? ... from the 4 times table ..1 x 4 = 4. Write the 1 above the 5 and the result, 4, is written below the 5.

 

 

 

Work out the remainder by subtracting 4 from 5, 5-4=1 Now bring the 6 down to make 16 the next number to divide into.

 

How many times does 4 go into 16? ... from the 4 times table ..4 x 4 = 16. Write the 4 above the 6 and the result, 16, is written below the 16.

Finally, subtract 16 from 16, 16-16=0, which means that there is no remainder.

The answer is 214 with no remainder.

 

 

To support your child with Timestables, please access Timetable RockStars. This is a great source to support regular Timestables practice that can be applied in class. 

Science, History and Geography

These are full of useful information to help with homework and for extra revisits of learning. We use them in school and aid children to retrieve relevant facts to help them understand the topic.
