Year 5

Welcome to Year Five 2019-20!

 

In Year Five we hope to always 'be the best that we can be!'

 

We hope to be able to share with you some of the activities that we have completed in class and any news or exciting events taking place. Watch this space...

 

 

 

 

Friday, 3rd April

 

Good morning Year 5.  Remember today is the final day of the TTRockStar battle.  Who will win?  Boys or girls?

 

Today’s tasks:

 

English – Create an information text about Palm Sunday on your Purple Mash 2Do.

 

Maths – Remind yourself about finding the area of shapes by watching this short video clip. https://www.bbc.co.uk/bitesize/clips/zytn34j

Using the measurements of your room or your garden from yesterday, can you find the area of these places?  If you don’t have a tape measure, remember you could try counting how many steps it takes you to walk along each side of the room/garden.  Add your working out to yesterday’s work in your Home Learning book.  Remember to record the area in m squared (the little 2 in the air – I can’t find it on my computer!).  This could help you work out how much carpet or grass you need to cover the whole area.
 

RE/Art – This Sunday is Palm Sunday.  Could you create, collect or draw a green branch to put in your window or door on Sunday?  This could help us to show that although we are keeping ourselves isolated, that we are united as the body of Christ.  Use your imagination to make your branch; you could draw, paint, make, stitch, glue, weave or any other way to create a green branch.

Congratulations to Isabelle, Emmanuel, Maryam, Summer, Oscar and Maciej for achieving a TOP 30 place in the entire school for Spelling Shed points!  I have awarded you 50 honey pots for your achievements!  Also well done to Amber, Amina, Makhail, Aydhin, Talhah and Wiktor for improving your scores!  You have been awarded 50 honey pots too.  Keep up the hard work.

Thursday, 2nd April

Good morning Year 5.  Remember there are only two days left of the TTRockStars battle between the boys and the girls... Who will be victorious?  I'm  going to be looking at the Spelling Shed scoreboard to see if I can award any more honey pots as a reward for fantastic spelling scores tomorrow too.

 

Today’s tasks:

English – This Sunday is Palm Sunday when we remember Jesus triumphantly entering Jerusalem.  It is the beginning of Holy Week.  Read the following passage from the Bible and answer the comprehension questions in your Home Learning book.

 

Maths – Remind yourself about perimeter by watching this short video clip. https://www.bbc.co.uk/teach/skillswise/perimeter/zkpxkmn

Can you work out the perimeter of some of the rooms in your house or your garden?  If you don’t have a tape measure, try counting how many steps it takes you to walk along each side of the room/garden then add all sides to find the perimeter.  Record your working out in your Home Learning book.  Perhaps you could draw a plan of your room with the sides clearly labelled.

 

Science - Find out facts about missions to space.

       What was the first creature sent into space?

       Who was the first astronaut?

       Who was the first man on the moon?

What other interesting facts can you find?  Present your work in a creative way of your choice (poster, fact file, PowerPoint or your choice).

Wednesday, 1st April

Good morning Year 5. Happy first day of a new month! Have you managed to trick anyone in your family with an April Fool yet? I am seeing some fantastic work being handed in – well done Year 5!  Have you been reading your school reading book every day?

Today’s tasks:

English – Look at the picture below to inspire you to write a description.

Most visitors are a little shocked (to put it mildly) when they arrive at Animal Town. Despite the fact that the name of the town gives a slight indication to passers-by that the inhabitants of the town are ‘not normal’, it’s as if people don’t believe things until they see them with their own eyes!

Imagine you are a visitor in Animal Town. Try to describe your experience.  Try to use fronted adverbials to improve your sentences.  Don’t forget the commas!  E.g. Nonchalantly, the orangutan lounges on the bench.

 

Maths – Please complete the 2Do on Perimeter.  Remember the perimeter is all around the outside of the shape so you add all the sides together.

 

Geography – test your geographical knowledge on this multiple choice quiz.  Can anyone score full marks?

Hello again Year 5.  I have had a couple of emails to the school email to let me know that Purple Mash wasn't giving you permission to reply to my emails.  I (think) I have solved this problem! Fingers crossed it works!  

Tuesday 31st March

Good morning Year 5. I hope you are all well and remembering to be kind to your family.

Today’s tasks:

English – watch this link to remind yourself of the different types of fronted adverbials we can add to simple sentences. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=pCpJXDy0tb8

Create 6 sentences with the different types of fronted adverbials using the simple sentence: She began to cry.  Record your 6 sentences in your Home Learning book. Extension: Think of your own simple sentence and add the different types of fronted adverbials to it.

 

Maths - please complete the 2Do on Purple Mash on multiplication.  Remember to do the working out before giving the correct answer.

 

RE – Read the following information about the Stations of the Cross and think about Jesus’ journey on his last day and how he suffered for us all.

Create a piece of artwork that shows one of the Stations of the Cross (you choose which one you would like to draw).
