Welcome to Year 5
Following the current school closure, please check the Year 5 page for information and relevant activities that the children could be completing throughout this home learning phase.
This Week - 30.3.20
There will be relevant and appropriate tasks set through the 'Purple Mash'. All of the children have received their login details for this website. Some tasks will be ongoing, some will be set as a weekly activity whereas others will be set as and when the opportunity arises. Please aim to try and check the website regularly.
As well as the activity below, I have uploaded instructions for a diary entry to write at the end of each week (see the 'Home Learning' section). There is no pressure on the time frame of this.
White Rose Maths (our curriculum provider) have created a scheme of learning for the current climate. Each week, they will update their scheme of learning with the relevant strand and concepts that we in the classroom would have been learning. They have useful videos to supplement learning alongside worksheets and an answer sheet.
Here is the link for this week's White Rose:
This week will be about rounding decimals, ordering and comparing decimals and understanding percentages. If you can, please aim to make this one of your priorities for the week.
See the attachments above for the mathematics that was sent out to you previously.
This can be completed alongside learning which will go on Purple Mash as the situation arises, as well as Times Tables Rockstars. Additionally, the Top Marks website has a useful 'Hit the Button' game to practise times tables.
Above is this week's list of spellings.
I have created a list of this week's spellings to learn through Spelling Frame. The children can play interactive games to learn the spellings as well as be tested on how well they have learnt them.
See the attachments on this page for the comprehension activities that were sent out to you previously.
There is now a revision activity for poetry, non-fiction and fiction, as well as Michael Morpurgo non-fiction comprehension to have a go at.
Above is a link to the Body Coach TV's workout videos. Keeping physically and mentally healthy in self-isolation will be challenging, but there are several things you and your children could be doing around the house!
The STEM website has a collection of starter activities which could engage the children in scientific thinking. See the attachments below for the downloadable version.
The order I will be assessing the children is as follows:
2x, 5x, 10x, 4x, 8x, 3x, 6x, 9x, 11x, 12x, 7x
They will then move onto mixed questioning, followed by division facts.
If you would like to follow the same format, then you can practise the times table that your child is being assessed on/practising to learn at home.
Please can you also ensure that your child is reading at least 10 minutes a day. Ensure they are discussing, interpreting and questioning the language of the text with you.
