Year 5

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.

 

 

Literacy:

 

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.

 

Monday:

  • Watch the video and read the information about Easter at the following link https://www.bbc.co.uk/bitesize/topics/ztkxpv4/articles/z4t6rj6
  • Open Purple Mash
  • Click on ‘Tools’
  • Find and open the ‘2Chart’ program
  • Once you have opened ‘2Chart’, click on the simple sequence application.
  • From here, I would like you to sequence the events of the Easter story using the information from the website. You can use this to plan your future writing this week.

 

Tuesday:

  • Using the events that you sequenced yesterday, choose one of these events and write a diary entry from the point of view of one of Jesus’ disciples. Think about what they saw, how they felt, anything that Jesus said during the event, etc.
  • To do this, find and open the ‘2Publish Plus’ program
  • Open the ‘Blank Diary’ application

 

Wednesday:

  • Today, I would like you to watch the “Easter Story” video clip on Purple Mash to help you complete another writing task.
  • Open Purple Mash, click on ‘Topics’, then ‘Celebrations and Faith’, then ‘Christianity’, then ‘Easter’
  • Open the ‘Easter Story’ application
  • I would like you to pretend that you are the woman in the clip: Mother Mary. I would like you to write a letter to a friend, describing what you have witnessed.
  • The video clip has a letter format attached to it for you to use.

 

Thursday:

  • Using the information that you’ve learned so far this week, as well as any other research that you would like to do, try to write a fact-file about Easter on Purple Mash.
  • Open ‘2Publish Plus’ again
  • Find the ‘Blank Simple Leaflet’ application to help you with your writing.

 

Friday:

  • To finish the week, I would like you to write a prayer. It can be about Easter if you wish, or it can be about something else.
  • Find ‘2Publish’
  • Open the ‘I have found out’ application to help you with your writing.

 

 

Maths:

 

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:

 

https://whiterosemaths.com/homelearning/year-5/

 

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.  

 

 

Spellings:

 

https://spellingframe.co.uk/guest/word-list/22413

 

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.

 

 

Guided Reading:

 

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.

 

 

 

Physical Education:

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! 

 

 

Science:

 

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.

Times Tables:

 

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.
