Good morning Year 5,

I am really proud of all of the hard work you are doing at home, I really enjoyed looking at your drawings yesterday.

Below are the tasks for English, Maths, Science and PE that are to be completed today for your home learning.

 

PE

Well done to those of you who took part in the skipping challenge. I have attached the leadership board and photos. 

We will be doing a different challenge next week.

 

If you would like to take part in the Joe Wicks PE session, you will find it on his YouTube channel.

 

Maths

I have attached the answers to yesterday’s maths so you can mark your own work.


Following the steps to success, complete the fluency and reasoning questions on ordering and comparing decimals.

 

English

Yesterday, you should have continued your historical story. Today, I would like you to use your plan to complete your story. I really look forward to reading them.

Remember that the sentences you write should include as many taught Year 5 features as possible, not just brackets, dashes and commas to indicate parenthesis. This year we have learnt to use:

  • relative clauses
  • adverbial clauses
  • non-finite clauses
  • fronted adverbials
  • expanded noun phrases
  • speech

 

Remember to complete the quiz on Renaissance Read after you have finished your reading book. Let me know if you have forgotten your log in details and I will send them via Marvellous Me.

 

Science

Today we are starting our new topic, Earth and Space. As a pre-learning task, I would like you to write a list of things you already know about Earth and Space.

 

I have attached today’s task below.

 

Keep up the hard work! I hope you all have a lovely weekend.

Topic
Go out into your garden, looking for plants, flowers, leaves, seeds and bulbs. Sketch careful observational drawings of the items you find in your garden. You could also do observational drawings of fruit and vegetables, this could be the whole fruit or vegetable or you could cut it in half and draw the inside.

Research artists who have used plants, fruit and vegetables as inspiration and use this to inform your own sketches.

 

I look forward to seeing your observational drawings!

 

Keep up the hard work!
Mrs Marriott

Today, we are learning about land use and geographical features on maps. I would like you to use the internet to research local allotments. Use an Ordnance Survey map https://osmaps.ordnancesurvey.co.uk/53.20469,-0.99508,18/pin to locate local allotments. What are the key human and physical features nearby? What are allotments used for? Why do people choose to use them?

Why do you think allotments are positioned where they are? In your answer, consider the key human and physical features nearby and the impact they have.

Use the internet to research how have allotments changed over time.

 

Keep up the hard work!
Mrs Marriott

Monday 20th April

Good morning Year 5,

I hope you all had a safe and restful Easter break. I am missing you all and hope to see you soon!

Below are the tasks for English, Maths, RE and PE that are to be completed today for your home learning. I look forward to seeing examples of your hard work.

 

PE

Skipping Challenge

How many skips can you manage in 2 minutes? Do you think you can beat me and your classmates? Set yourself a timer and get skipping! Send me your scores and photos of you skipping (if you would like it to be posted on the school website) and I will post a leadership board at the end of the week!

 

If you would like to take part in the Joe Wicks PE session, you will find it on his YouTube channel.

 

Maths
Go on TT Rockstars.

 

Following the steps to success, complete the fluency questions on reading and writing decimal numbers. There is also a problem solving challenge for you to complete if you finish your fluency work.

 

English
Before the Easter break, we did our shared innovated write of a historical story. This week we will be writing our own historical story. Use the attached planning sheet to help you structure your plan – you do not need to print it off.

 

Today you just need to plan your story, you will then be writing a different section each day this week. Remember to plan to use brackets, dashes and commas to indicate parenthesis as well as relative and adverbial clauses. 

 

RE
Our new RE topic is ‘Transformation’. During the next 4 weeks, we will be celebrating the Spirit’s transforming power. We, as Christians, believe that the Spirit of God is active in each person. It is the work of the Spirit which enables people to hear God’s message, to respond to it and share it. The feast of Pentecost in a celebration of the gift of God’s Spirits and its transforming power. We and the world we live in are full of energy which can be transformed to good use for us and the natural world.

Today, we will be looking at how fire, water, wind and sun can be transformed; how it helps people and what values it promotes. Look at the attached document to find out more about the task, including the steps to success.

 

Enjoy your day and stay safe,
Mrs Marriott
