Week beginning: 27th April 2020
Encourage your child to read daily and complete a comment in their yellow reading record. You could also listen to extracts/stories. Here are some possible links below:
If you would like to access the Oxford reading scheme books, here is the website link:
[See slide attached below if you have any problems accessing it.]
Please also continue to practice times tables each day, using ‘Monster Multiplication’ on Purple Mash as a revision tool or use: https://www.twinkl.co.uk/resource/multiplication-tables-check-practice-tg-ga-190 which is a timed times table checker to help improve times tables skills.
Alternatively, you can practise your times tables using the resources below. These are paper copies and so therefore they are not under timed conditions.

The children have a Maths and English task set daily and one Topic, Science and Spellings task which can be completed at any point over the week. Please scroll down to find the weekly activities at the bottom of this page.

Use The White Rose Home Learning pack from the following link: https://whiterosemaths.com/homelearning/year-5/
Click on Summer Term, Week 1 (w/c 20 April) Lesson 4: Adding decimals crossing the whole.
Play the clip and follow the instructions. The clip will ask you to pause at certain points, so it is worth having the two pages open at once so you can click between the two. The answers are available to check your child’s work. If you do not have a printer, don’t worry. Just write down the answers on a separate piece of paper.
This week you will continue completing some activities based on the extract from the book ‘Rooftoppers’ by Katherine Rundell which you looked at last weeks.
Start by re-reading the extract ‘Fooftoppers’ aloud. Your task is to write a prequel to the story.
What happened before the story started? How did the baby get in the Cello case? What was the baby’s life like before it was stranded in the English Channel? What was Charles Maxim’s life like? How did he manage to get into contact with the baby?
Remember to include: paragraphing expanded noun phrases, correct punctuation and neat presentation. Don’t forget to make it as interesting as possible.
Re-read the extract of ‘Rooftoppers’. Write the next part of the story.
Think about what has already happened. Where did the story end? What might have happened next? Include description and detail to engage your audience.
As part of your Topic work this week, I have set a 2Do, on Purple Mash, to read the story of ‘Mathos’ so please ensure that you have read it and then compete the 2Do activity: ‘Chapter 1: Online Multiple Choice’. Then from the following link on Purple Mash: https://www.purplemash.com/#tab/pm-home/topics/ancient_greeks/mathos_live_sm_free complete the following printable activities, which are in pdf format:
‘Chapter 1: Sequencing’; ‘Chapter 1: SpaG’ and the last activity is: ‘Chapter 1: Open Ended Questions’.
Try to challenge yourself and complete as many of the 2Do activities as possible. If you don’t have a printer then you can complete the work on a piece of paper.
Practise your spellings daily using one of the activities from our school's spelling approach:
As part of our Science topic: ‘Properties and Changes of Materials’, please can you complete the ‘Solids, Liquids, Gases’ Purple Mash Activity on your 2Do List .
Then complete the attached sheet below on ‘Objects and their Properties’. I appreciate some of you might not have magnets at home, so a prediction or researching it on the internet is fine. If you do not have access to any of the items, just do the ones you can test.
As part of our new topic ‘Ancient Greece’, for last week and this week, I asked you please look at the following PowerPoint. (On slide 6 you need to click on the map to see an animation of how the empire changed over time.)
Then complete the following activity sheet. Remember: If you do not have a printer, you can draw out a similar table and fill it in by hand.
Activity One: Modern day vs Ancient Greece.
Can you find out any other factors which have changed or which interest you to add to the table of information?
Then order the events from Ancient Greece and put them on a timeline using the sheet below:
Activity Two: Order Ancient Greece on a timeline
If you have already completed this, you can research more events which occurred during the Ancient Greek times.
Then please read ‘Mathos’ and click on the icon which says ‘Book View’ which I have set as a 2Do on Purple Mash. I will then ask you to complete some activities related to this story in your English this week.
Please find the link for a well-being activity below where you can learn about the importance and benefits of teamwork.
This lesson includes:
Have a go at writing a book review for your favourite book. Or write one for the book you have just finished? Or for a book you have read recently which you have really enjoyed. Or (with your parents permission) write a review for a film. Try using (and possibly adapting) one of the templates below.
Below are some examples of book review templates which you can choose from:
