Continue to encourage your child to read daily and to complete a comment in their yellow reading record. You could also listen to extracts/stories. Use the links below:
Please 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 paper copies of the Times Table Wheels which are added to the Maths Resources section of the Year 5.
Today, I would like you to complete up to 45 mins of the pack on Addition and Subtraction.
(The answers are included at the back, so be careful Parents/Carers!)
Today, I would like you to complete up to 45 mins of the pack on ‘Decimal Calculations’.
(The answers are once again included at the back, so be careful Parents/Carers!)
try the ‘Leaflet Quiz PowerPoint’.
Is there anything you have missed from your leaflet? Can you add to it? Can you improve it?
If you have any unfinished questions from the packs of work this week, you can complete them today. As you have worked so hard on arithmetic this week, you can choose Maths activities from Purple Mash today. Please save them to show me which activities you chose.
As it was World Ocean Day at the beginning of the week, look at the web page link: https://oceanservice.noaa.gov/facts/why-care-about-ocean.html
Try putting this information into a poster to show how we can care about the ocean.
To help, I have attached a poster which you can use for inspiration. Are there any other things, which have not been mentioned, which could help to protect and conserve our oceans? Add them too.
Think about making your posters attractive, appealing and ensure that they include a balance of information for display purposes.
Please continue practising your spellings and complete the word search.
As part of World Ocean Day, I would like you to research people who have explored the oceans. You may wish to use the link to help:
https://www.ducksters.com/biography/explorers/ Word of warning: not all of them have explored the Oceans, so choose carefully!!
Choose two explorers and record information which shows how their individual explorations were very different from one another. This could be due to them exploring at different times, the ships they travelled in or the reasons for the explorations.
To follow on from your work on World Ocean Day, read the ‘Layers of The Ocean’ reading comprehension and answer the questions.
Look at the PowerPoint: ‘Layers of the Ocean Information PowerPoint’.
Then complete the activity sheet to label and identify the layers of the ocean.
Remember to think about yourselves in this challenging time and to enjoy what you do actually have. Don't waste time thinking about what you haven't got.
Try some of these activities together as a family and send in what you have produced.
Remember you can register for FREE to learn a new language on Duo Lingo. It has a range of simple activities and you can hear, read and see and say new words at your own speed.
Follow: https://www.duolingo.com/learn and let me know how you get on and which language you have chosen. The idea is that you use the website/App on a daily basis to build up your language skills. If you have already started learning a language on Duo Lingo, you can add another language too!
These are extra activities for you to have a go at if you wish:
Try the ‘Multiplication and Division Optional Pack’.
Look at the ‘Oceans of the World Fact PowerPoint’.
Then try the ‘Oceans of the World PowerPoint Quiz’.
