Year 5

Welcome to Year 5

Dear Parents and Carers,

 

During this period of home learning, you will be able to find information regarding activities and lessons for the children to do at home on this web page and it will be updated by 9am each Monday, ready for the upcoming week. This work will link to the Purple Mash website that you were given the login for as well as other helpful websites that you can use.  

 

Please note that we are aware that the work your child completes at home is likely to look different for each person depending on your current home situation; the work on this page is simply a guide that matches what we would be doing in class as closely as possible. Some of the work can be done online and some will require pencil and paper. If you don't have a printer at home, answers can be written on a piece of paper.

 

At the bottom of the page, I have included a list of different websites that you might find useful. If the children have any questions, there is a class blog on Purple Mash for them to use. They can also use that area to show pictures of any work they have done.

 

We're missing you all and hope that you all stay safe and well. 

 

See you soon!

 

Mrs Bain and Miss Littleford :) 

Week Commencing 30th March 2020

Hi Year 5!

 

I hope you're all OK and that you had a good week last week. I've had lots of lovely messages from your parents saying how hard you've been working - I'm very proud of you all. I've also enjoyed reading all of the writing that you completed last week and look forward to seeing what you write this week. Remember, if you do any additional projects at home, I'd love to see them. You can copy and paste pictures on your blog on Purple Mash (rather than upload them).

 

Hopefully see you soon Year 5. Miss Littleford and I are missing you lots!

 

Mrs Bain :)

Daily Activities

Below are some activities that your child should be doing every day in addition to the other activities outlined on this page.

Spellings

The children should be logging on to Spelling Frame each day and spend at least 10 minutes practising their spellings. Each child was given their login information to stick in their partnership book last week and I have sent the login information to their personal blog page on Purple Mash as well. Each Friday, the children will be able to take their spelling test in Spelling Frame to see how well they have learnt their spellings. The documents below include the original letter (explains how to log on) and each group's spelling list up to Easter (this contains the code needed to enter into Spelling Frame). Your child should know which spelling group they are in (we call Group B the "Spelling Squad" in class).

Reading

Children should continue to read every day at home. If you run out of books to read, I have sent the login information for the website Get Epic which has access to lots of reading books online.

Times Tables

The children still have their login information for Times Tables Rockstars. They should spend approximately 10 minutes a day practising their times tables.

PE

As you might have seen on social media, The Body Coach is doing daily PE lessons on his YouTube channel. It's a great idea for the children to do some physical activity every day whilst they're unable to run around on the playground at break times!

Additional Projects 

Whilst your child is learning at home, take the opportunity to do any projects that involve creating, cooking, gardening etc. You can share any pictures of activities that you've done at home on your child's personal blog on the Purple Mash website - I would love to see some of the things that they've been up to!

Daily 5

Each day, we begin with 5 arithmetic questions to maintain our mathematical fluency. Here is the Daily 5 activity for today.

Lesson

In school, we follow the White Rose Maths scheme of learning, who have very helpfully uploaded videos and worksheets related to what the children would have covered in school. The lessons can be found at https://whiterosemaths.com/homelearning/year-5/.

 

Today, we are learning about rounding decimals. Watch the video from Week 2, Lesson 1 on the link below and then answer the questions on the sheet provided.

SPaG

On Purple Mash, I have assigned a "2Do" task based on sorting words into nouns, verbs, adjectives and adverbs. We've covered these word classes at school before, but the videos below will help you if you need a reminder.

Writing

Our writing topic for this week is Easter. For today's lesson, I have set a 2Do called "Easter Sequence Plan". You need to watch the video that's linked below and read the information on the webpage to recap all of the key events that occurred during Holy Week and Easter. Note the events in the order that they happened, adding in extra details that you think will help you when you write about Easter later on in the week.

Guided Reading
I've assigned a reading comprehension on Purple Mash. There is some reading to do as well as answering the multiple choice questions I have set as a "2Do". Once you have done the reading and answered those questions, there are some written questions for you to answer below.

I've also put a decimals place value grid below which might be useful for this lesson.

On Purple Mash, I've set a "2Do" that's similar to yesterday's task, except this time you have to sort words where a suffix has been added. We've covered suffixes in school before, but you can watch the video below if you need a reminder.

Writing:

On Purple Mash, I have set a 2Do asking you to pretend to be one of Jesus' disciples and write a diary entry based on an event that happened in Holy Week. Remember to use the writer's checklist to help you with the grammar and punctuation elements that you need to include. If you're stuck, there's an example of a diary entry below.

On Purple Mash, I have set a "2Do" asking you to watch a video about the day Jesus' tomb was discovered empty. Once you've watched the video, you need to write a letter pretending to be Mary (the woman in the video), explaining to a friend about what she saw that day. If you get stuck for ideas, there's an example letter below.
