Year 5

ST THOMAS MORE

 

Happy new year to all!

Unfortunately, it hasn't been the start to the year that any of us would have hoped for but I am sure the only way is up from here and that we can all look forward to better times soon. I hope you are all safe and well and had a restful Christmas holiday with your families.

Since the government announced that learning for most children will take place online this half term, we have been busy planning for the weeks ahead.

For information on each day's learning, you will need to visit this class webpage where I will outline the tasks for the day ahead.

You will find instructions for each task and links to other sites or activities which may help with your learning. The tasks for that day will be written in red and will follow the class learning we were due to cover in school this half term, so please do your best to complete the lessons so you don't miss out on any valuable learning. Some tasks will be completed online whereas others may be paper based - in these cases you can send a photograph of your work to our class email address (or type it up if you want to improve your computing skills!) and I will respond with feedback as I would on Purple Mash.

As always, if you have any questions at all, please get in touch via email:

year5@stpetersrc.rochdale.sch.uk

Remember, there are also lots of links to the right of this page which you can access for any independent work you would like to carry out.

Please stay safe and well and fingers crossed we'll get through this soon!

All the best for now,

Miss Ho

Thursday 25th February

Good morning everyone! In case any of you tried to access the Purple Mash blog yesterday and were unable to, I'm afraid we have had to suspend the class blogs for the time being for safety reasons. Yesterday, I sent out the new passwords for Purple Mash. Please email me on Year5@stpetersrc.rochdale.sch.uk if you have not received yours. 

Here is the link to this week's prayers, if you would like to begin each day with a short reflection as we do in school:

Task 3- Maths

See if you can start of by solving this Maths Problem

I’d like you to use what you learnt in yesterday’s lesson to help you work through one of the sections in the worksheet below. If you get confused, remember that you can rewatch the video from yesterday.

It might also help you to use a place value chart like that attached below.

Remember the little trick I have shared in class too: when multiplying or dividing by 10, 100 or 1000, the digits move the same number of times as there are zeros in the number. So x10 = move 1 place, x100 = move 2 places, x1000 = move 3 places.

Task 4- Computing
This half term we are going to look at computer game designs. As it is near world book day, I wondered if we could design a game based on our favourite book.

We will plan the game in steps. Please follow the instructions on the ppt- Lesson 1- Setting the scene. to help you. This week, I'd like you to focus on the planning stage and think about a clear idea for your levels. 

You will have a chance to play other children's games and also use their ideas to make your own.

Tuesday 23rd February

Good morning everyone!

I'm sure that you have heard the news by now -  the government announced yesterday that we will all be back in school in just under two weeks time. Hopefully that counts as good news!

That means we don't have too long left to continue with home learning and I hope it gives you all a boost now you can see some light at the end of the tunnel: we're nearly there now!

Monday 22nd February

 Good morning, everyone!

I hope you have all had a wonderful half term and are ready for this half term's learning. We should find out later what the government's plan is for our return to school but hopefully there will only be a few more weeks of home learning left before we try to get used to being back in the classroom again!

Please remember to send your work through to me each day so that I can see how you are getting on and give you some feedback on how you are doing. This will also aid our eventual return to school as I will then have a clear understanding of where each of you are up to in your learning.

Below is the link for this week's assembly.

Task 2- English

To tie in with the work we will carry out this half term, we are going to focus on biographical writing over the next week or so and look at some inspirational figures.

Today, I would like you to go over the features of biographies by working through this lesson from Oak Academy: https://classroom.thenational.academy/lessons/to-identify-features-of-a-biography-c4w3jt?activity=video&step=1

One of the features discussed are relative clauses. See if you can complete this Relative clause worksheet. 

Please log onto Spelling shed to complete the Relative Clause quiz assigned on your account. 

Task 3- Maths

This week, we are going to focus on multiplying and dividing numbers by 10, 100 and 1000. We will look at patterns in the digits and include decimal numbers in our calculations too.

To begin our focus on this today, I’d like you to revisit some place value work in identifying the value of each digit within a number. This is especially important when looking at decimal values where people are not quite as confident.

I’d like you to work through this Oak Academy lesson which focuses on place value to 3 decimal places: 

https://classroom.thenational.academy/lessons/place-value-to-3-decimal-places-6crpat

I’ve attached an editable version of the worksheet below but you can always work this out on plain paper as well.

Thursday 11th February

Good morning everyone! Only 2 more days before we get the week off!

Here is the link to this week's prayers, if you would like to begin each day with a short reflection as we do in school:

https://www.tentenresources.co.uk/prayers-for-home/34b9efgj903487043otq408er083q4y/

Task 1- Spellings

We have a Word search this morning, including this week's spelling words for you to spot. You'll find the answers on the second slide so you can check if you found them all!

Task 2- English

Can you get creative and write your own myth today?

This could be a creation myth, it could explain a feature of nature (such as why the wind blows or why it rains, etc.) or the origins of an animal species.

Use this BBC Bitesize page to help you think about the features to include: https://www.bbc.co.uk/bitesize/articles/zgwwr2p

Try to use your imagination to come up with something unique!

I'm looking forward to reading your work.

Please try one of these games to help improve your vocabulary and sentences: https://games.vocabularyninja.co.uk/kids/ 

Task 3- Maths

Today, we are going to look at the difference between regular and irregular polygons.

Regular polygons have equal sides and angles, whereas irregular polygons can have sides and angles of any size. So, for example, an irregular polygon would have 5 sides, but these could all be different lengths and angles. A rectangle is also an irregular polygon, because not all of the sides have equal lengths.

Work through this Oak Academy lesson on regular and irregular polygons to improve your understanding:

https://classroom.thenational.academy/lessons/2d-and-3d-shape-to-identify-regular-and-irregular-polygons-by-reasoning-about-equal-sides-and-angles-69jp4c

Then have a look at the polygons game which is played in the video below. You could try this with people at home, or even just time yourself in folding different regular and irregular polygons.

https://www.bbc.co.uk/teach/class-clips-video/maths-ks2-playing-with-polygons/zngkqp3

Task 4- Computing

It's our last day on spreadsheets!

Today I would like you to imagine that we are having a party for our class. I want you to think about what things you would like to have in your party and research the cost. Once you have the costs, input them onto the spreadsheet. Think about the quantity you would need for a class of 30 and how much is in a packet. 

Below is an example of what your spreadsheet might look like at the beginning. 

Try to use the formulas you have learnt in the total cost section. Good luck!

Task 5- Times tables: 

Attempt this week’s TTRS Challenge: Boys Vs Girls. Also, you have the option to play “Gig” or “Soundcheck” please attempt this today. 

Try to spend 20 mins on TTRockstars, 20mins on Numbots and 20mins on Spelling Shed each day as well, if you can!

Task 6- Reading:  Read the next chapter in your chosen book.  https://library.thenational.academy

Task 4- History

Last week we had a look at the Maya number system. Today, I'd like you to learn more about their writing system. Again, it used symbols and images but can be quite complicated as there are sometimes different options for each sound!

Read through the PowerPoint below and see if you can use this to answer the questions on the 'Fact Hunt' sheet. Then, use the final few slides of the PowerPoint to see if you can write your own name using the Maya glyphs. Good luck!

CONGRATULATIONS to the boys who won the TTRS challenge!

CONGRATULATIONS to the children who went onto Spelling Shed to complete the challenge again Year 5.6. We won! Remember you can use the webpage for spelling shed so you don’t need to pay for the app.

Task 1- Spellings

Last week, we looked at tricky spellings which did not follow the rule ‘i before e except after c’. This week we will look at these words. Usually, words with an /ee/ sound are often spelled ‘ei’ after a ‘c’. The ‘ei’ spelling is more common in English words.

Go through the rule here and spend around 10 minutes practising your spellings. Don't forget to go onto Spelling Shed to practise this week's words!

Task 2- English
This week, we are going to have a look at the ancient Maya creation myth – the story which they used to explain the beginning of the world.

Today, we will look more at the features of myths, which were often used to explain natural phenomena that people did not understand at the time - such as the seasons or the origins of different species of animal, for example.

You can learn a little more about myths from this video: https://www.bbc.co.uk/bitesize/topics/zx339j6/articles/ztxwsrd

I’d like you to listen to three of the Ancient Greek myths here https://www.bbc.co.uk/teach/school-radio/ks2-ancient-greece/zk73nrd, or read the script versions below.

Can you write a list of the common features that they share?

What characteristics, plot points, language features do the myths have in common?

Theseus & the Minotaur

Perseus & the Gorgon

King Midas

Today I’d like you to think a little more about symmetry. There are many examples in art of symmetry being used to create interesting shapes and patterns.

I’d like you to look at Rangoli patterns today, which are colourful designs often used by Hindus during Diwali.

On the first file below, see if you can identify all of the lines of symmetry in each pattern. Rangoli patterns use rotational symmetry, which means there may well be more than one line of symmetry!

Then, I’d like you to try to design your own pattern. You can use the instructions on the second file to help you.

If you have tracing paper or baking paper, this could help but you can still complete a pattern without this.

I’m looking forward to seeing some colourful designs!

If you cannot view this video or complete the work above, please log on to Purple Mash for your new story, comprehension and writing tasks.

Task 3- Maths

Today we are going to have a look at translation, which means moving a shape to a new position. The shape won’t change at all, it will just be in a new place on the grid. Translation instructions often include D for down and U for up, rather than the whole words.

I’d like you to watch the videos on this BBC Bitesize page to see this explained with clear examples: https://www.bbc.co.uk/bitesize/articles/zk7dg7h

Remember: a vertex (or vertices) is the corner of a shape. If you are using a coordinates grid, translating a shape will result in new coordinates for its vertices.

Choose A. B or C from the file below to practise translating shapes.

You will need squared or graph paper but don’t worry if you don’t have any at home, you can use the second file and print it out or complete the work as a Word doc, if that is easier.

  • Baking cookies
  • Family art (maybe you could draw each other a portrait)
  • Yoga and Meditation- There are loads of videos to watch on YouTube to support this. Headspace meditation
  • Going on a Winter Walk- look for signs of winter in the areas around your home (Alkrington Woods is a wonderful place to visit)
  • Make bird feeders to welcome birds into your gardens.
  • Playing with Lego.

Whatever you choose to do (maybe you'll choose simply to relax with each other) then we hope you have fun. We don't need you to send photos of these tasks to us, just enjoy them (obviously we would love to have a nosey at your photos should you choose to send them though!)

If you have any fun ideas that I can pass on to other families then please let me know about them via email and I will suggest them next week!

https://www.tentenresources.co.uk/prayers-for-home/456-07549743872355-43/

Task 1- Spelling

Let's begin the week by looking at our new spelling words for the week. There is no particular pattern this week. Instead we have ten 'challenge words' which can be tricky to spell. Just spend around 10 minutes going through the spellings using this list.

Task 2- English

Today we are going to begin a new unit of work with Jane Considine. This unit is very important as it will focus on persuasive Non-Fiction writing, an area we have not covered so far. Use the English books we gave you and layout the work as Mrs C shows you on the video.

If you cannot view this video or complete the work above, please log on to Purple Mash for your new story and comprehension tasks.

Task 3- Maths


Today we are moving on from division and focusing on perimeter and area in our Maths work.

We have looked at these before. Perimeter is the distance around the outside of a shape. We calculate it by adding all of the side lengths together. I'd like you to work on the perimeter of composite shapes today.

Remember that this can involve some calculation if you do not have all of the side lengths. Use this Oak Academy video to go through this method at home:

https://classroom.thenational.academy/lessons/calculate-the-perimeter-of-simple-compound-shapes-c9gp8r 

Click this worksheet which accompanies the video.

Can you calculate the perimeter of each shape?

Task 4-Science

Last week, as part of our work on famous British scientists, we had a look at Stephen Hawkings. This week we are going to look at Isaac Newton and his work on light and colour. 

Newton discovered that white light was actually made from many different colours.

I'd like you to read through this PowerPoint on Newton and his work on light, and then make your own colour wheel to see if you can show how white light is a combination of different colours.

I've included some instructions for creating your own Newton colour wheel as well as a video so you can see this in action.

Once you get your colours to combine, you can always send me a video to show this working! 

Good luck! 

Task 5- Times tables: A huge well done to the girls for last week's TTRS tournament! A special well done to Olivia WH, Alice WH, Evie R, Macaulay S, Ethan R and Thomas H. Click your names to download your certificates! 

There is another tournament this week. Let's see if the boys can win, or if the girls are the BEST! :D

For space week, we looked at pictures from the artist Peter Thorpe. We layered our pictures using wax and water colours for the abstract design and pastel on the foreground for our space design. 

Clay figures

  This half term we have been looking at how animals survive. We have been researching our animals and are making our clay figures .

Tornado Art Work

These are our pictures of tornados. We used our shading skills to make our pictures look 3D.
