Year 5 – Tuesday 30th March

Good Morning Year 5

I hope you are well this Tuesday morning, and that you have woken up ready and raring to go on today’s jobs. 

First of all, a massive thank you for all your hard work. We are incredibly proud of you and the resilience you have shown. Us teachers are slowing adjusting to this new way of working, but missing seeing you all everyday. We can’t wait to be back with each other and all of you wonderful year 5s.

Yesterday we mentioned that Numbots may be an extra resource that may be helpful. We suggested that you could skip ahead some levels. Unfortunately this is not as option for children, but as we were logged in as teachers we could do this – apologies for this confusion. If you want to work through levels then feel free,  but if you would rather not use this resource and find others that you prefer then please feel free to.

Thank you to those children who let us know their fractions scores from the assessments yesterday. If you haven’t got around to answering them yet or not sent in your scores, please do send an email to year5@stmarksce.org.uk and let us know how you got on or ask for the answers.

Thanks to those children who sent in work to the Year 5 email, we love seeing it.

Have a fantastic day and stay wonderful.

Year 5 Team 

Helpful Reminders

Don’t forget you can email us on year5@stmarksce.org.uk. We would love to hear from you if you have a question, need a password, need some help, want to show us your work or even just say hello! Please get your grown up’s permission before you email us. We look forward to hearing from you. We may not reply the same day!

Presentation – Please remember to do your very best work. Handwriting and presentation are as important at home as they are in school. You can complete your work in a book or if you need lined or squared paper you can get it here.

Note for parents: Hopefully your children will enjoy working through these activities and can do independently. We completely understand it may be difficult to complete all these tasks due to other family commitments or you are working from home, so please do not worry; complete what you can with your child. 

Daily Activities

Today your jobs are going to be  Maths, English and science. But as always, available to you is:

  • TTRockstars – Miss T will be online again at 3pm for another chance to challenge you all.
  • Numbots – We apologise for the confusion with this, please see above for more information.
  • Spelling Shed – Practise your spelling words for this week through games. 
  • Reading –  Read for at least 20 mins and continue to write in your Reading Log.
  • Keywords – Learn these everyday, by look, say, cover, write and check.
  • RE – Yesterday we uploaded a list of RE activities for you to complete if you wanted to over this week

Maths

Today we are going to be starting a new unit in Maths, Decimals and Percentages. 

We are going to be using something slightly different for maths this week. White Rose (the scheme we follow in Maths) has created some worksheets and videos. for this unit of maths. We have looked through it and think that it will be really helpful. The videos talk you through bits of the worksheet and then gives you time to work out parts of it.

We cannot download the videos from the website, but you will find it by clicking here.

When you do, you will, need to click onto the week 1 section of the web page (picture below)  

Then you will find the video for Lesson 1 (shown below)

We have attached the worksheet for you, but you can also find it on the website. You can also find the answers there too, but we can also email them to you if you prefer or can’t find them.

Extra Challenges

We have attached some challenges to do with decimals for you to complete after you finish the first sheet. As with normal challenges, you do not have to complete them but we would love for you to have a go at them. Remember to email in for the answers if you need them. They may not be the most difficult questions, but instead these challenges are to consolidate your understanding and to show it in different ways. 

English

Today you are going to be writing the build up of your story, that follows on from your beginning yesterday. You will need your plan you made on Friday yesterday nearby to remind you of what happens in your story.

They key thing for this part of the story will be to tell the audience how your characters got the money. 

We have done a lot of practise describing so remember to include:

  • Relative clauses
  • Parenthesis
  • Different sentence types (e.g. the more the more, 3ed sentences and 2 pair sentences)
  • Semi-colons to join two clauses
  • Semi-colons for a descriptive list

The PowerPoint gives you an example build up that Mrs Poole has written for you to show what a good one looks like.

Science

Today we are going to be thinking about surface area. There is some information and a video to watch and then you are going to complete an experiment.

In the PowerPoint, it suggests plastercine, blu tak or foil to make different shapes. But if you do not have any of these things, then you can find anything waterproof that is different shapes, maybe a pencil, or a ball, whatever you have.

The End!

Year 5 – Monday 30th March

Good Morning Year 5!

We hope you had a fantastic weekend, making the most of the time at home and with your family. It’s the start of another week and another range of activities.

This week at school we would have been doing RE, so this week you will have two set RE jobs that we would like you to complete, but today we have also attached a pack of other RE activities you could complete if you would like to. As it is coming up to Easter, the activities are based around this time of year and the story behind it.

We have found another fantastic resource on the TT Rockstars website which is available to all of you. Numbots is a fantastic tool to help your mental arithmetic skills. To log on go to https://play.numbots.com/?#/account/school-login-type and use your TT Rockstars username and password. When you play the story mode, it goes through different levels of difficulty. The first one (Rust) is quite easy counting the number of objects, but as you work through the different levels, it continues to get progressively harder. If you wanted to skip ahead rather than work through the easier stuff that is fine, maybe jump to the steel level. Although the first levels are easier, it is always good practise to complete them and improve your speed and accuracy of key skills.

We are really enjoying seeing all your hard work, so please keep sending them in to year5@stmarkscofe.org.uk.

 

This week, Mrs Stone and Mrs Poole will be in school, and Miss Fowler is having her week off so Miss Thomas will be working from home, setting the work and replying to emails. Next week, it will be Mrs Poole and Miss Fowler working from home.

Maths

We have now finished our fraction unit of work, so well done. We know fractions can be tricky, but you we all resilient and its paid off. As we do with all units in Maths, we will now be completing the end of unit assessment. As it is an assessment, we would ideally like you to complete this independently if you can, remember we have taught you everything you need to know, so think back to what we have done to help you. Handy Hint – Remember drawings can be helpful to answer some of the questions.

There are two parts to complete – you should have no longer than 20 minutes to answer each one.

Once you have completed them, email Miss T for the answers and she will send them over to you. We would like to hear how everyone got on with these, so please send us your scores once you have marked them. This will tell us if we need to go over anything again to help consolidate your learning.

English

Today you will be writing the beginning section of you Millions story that you planned on Friday – so keep your plan close by.  

The key things to include in the beginning of your story are to introduce the characters and the settings of a story.

We have done a lot of practise describing so remember to include:

  • Relative clauses
  • Parenthesis
  • Different sentence types (e.g. the more the more, 3ed sentences and 2 pair sentences)
  • Semi-colons to join two clauses
  • Semi-colons for a descriptive list

If you have the opportunity to type your story, we would suggest that. By typing it means you can go back, add to and edit more easily, and then when the stories are complete in a few days time, you can easily email them over to us and we can read them.

RE

RE this week is going to be based around the Easter Story, Today’s is going to be understanding the importance of Holy Week for Christians. On the Powerpoint is a link to a video we would like you to watch which gives you details about Holy Week. Then there is some facts about the week further down on the page. In case you can’t access the link from the PowerPoint it is www.bbc.co.uk/bitesize/topics/ztkxpv4/articles/z4t6rj6.

You then have a short job to fill in a table to show the importance of the different parts of the week.

Here is the RE pack that you may choose to complete some activities from if you have time. This week is about Lent.

Here is your spelling letter for this week. Remember that these spellings will also be on Spelling Shed for you to play games with to help you learn them.

The End!

Year 5 – Friday 27th March

Good Morning Year 5!

We hope you are well, can you believe it is Friday already?! That’s our first full week of home learning done. Make sure over the weekend you enjoy the sunshine before it hides away next week (or so the weatherman says). 

Did anyone listen to the David Walliams link that we put on here yesterday which was Trish the Troll? If you didn’t manage to listen yesterday but would like to, click on the link after 11am for the next short story – https://www.worldofdavidwalliams.com/elevenses/

We would like to say a massive well done for all of your hard work so far. We are incredibly proud of you and wanted to share some of the fantastic photos of work we have received so far. If yours isn’t here, please don’t think we haven’t seen it, we just couldn’t put all of them on. Keep sending them in and maybe you will see yours up here one other day.

 

We hope you continue to stay active, maybe using Joe Wicks, going for walks or playing in the garden. Have a fantastic weekend and stay safe,

Year 5 Team
