Year 5 Home Learning

If parents or carers have any questions about the work set, please use the email address to contact your child's class teacher: 

Mr Freeman:

Class11@holytrinity.bwmat.org

Mrs Blake and Mrs Locke:

Class12@holytrinity.bwmat.org

Daily Structure

Every weekday we will set a numeracy, literacy and one other lesson (topic, spellings or RE for example), which should take about an hour each to complete.  In addition, there will be a SACAWAC and times table activity, which should take 15-20 mins – this is how we usually start our days at school.  You should also try to find 10-15 minutes each day to read.  Start by reading the three books you have brought home from school and in time we will post links to websites that you can use.

Joe Wicks, ‘The Body Coach’ will be running PE lessons at 9am on his YouTube channel and it would be great if you could join in.  https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCAxW1XT0iEJo0TYlRfn6rYQ

If you have spare time in your day enjoy being creative…find time to draw, paint, craft, sing, dance, cook, do some gardening etc etc.  We look forward to hearing what you have been up to when we return to school. 

Should your child be worried about the Coronavirus, here is a short story aimed at easing those worries: dave_the_dog_coronavirus_1_1.pdf

Year 5, please send in some photographs of you home learning or scans of your work for the website.

Easter Holidays Homework

We will not be setting daily tasks during the next two weeks as it is the Easter Holidays. However, we have set some homework tasks for you to complete as we normally would.

Maths – Log in to TTR using your password. We have set x2 Garage games and x2 Arena games. These will be available to complete from 3:20pm on Friday 3rd April and are due to be completed by Monday 20th April.

Spelling – Rather than the usual spelling homework, there is another set of words for you to learn.  This is because we missed a week’s worth of spellings when we were at Mill on the Brue...so I’m afraid it’s time to catch up!

1)  Ask someone to test you on last week’s words.  Mark your words and give yourself a big pat on the back if you got full marks!

2)  Read through the information in the PowerPoint (saved as a pdf for everyone this week). This time we are adding the –ify suffix.

3)  Copy out this week’s words from the handwriting sheet in your neatest handwriting.

4)  Choose one of these activities to complete:

a) Write a sentence for at least 6 (or more if you like) of your spelling words.

b) Write a dictionary definition for all 10 words.

c) Create a word search using all of this week’s spelling words, then give it to someone else in your house to answer.

Daily Tasks

  • Today’s SACAWAC words – you can find them under Monday’s lessons for this week.
  • Times Table Rockstars – spend 10 mins practising your times table.

Numeracy

We are continuing to work through MyMaths to consolidate fractions: the children from Year 5 will be asked to work systematically through the units on fractions starting from Year 2 work as assessments have shown significant gaps in their knowledge of this subject. Spend one hour on numeracy, like you would in school.

Please note: Your teacher will not know that you have done your home learning unless you log in with your username and password

Why are there 3 tasks today? These are the last 3 fractions units from Year 4 and prepares the pupils for starting Year 5 fractions after the Easter holiday.

If this is challenging for your child, try using a fraction wall from a website and using the Advanced button to make the two fraction strips one above the other - then shading in the relevant number of rectangles. An example is here: https://www.visnos.com/demos/fraction-wall

Daily SACAWAC and Times Tables

SACAWAC

It is a new week and time for a new SACAWAC sheet!  Look at the sheet for your group and copy out the spellings each day into your Home Learning Book.  If you prefer to print it and write on the sheet, then that is fine too.  Remember to check each word carefully at the end to make sure you have not made any mistakes!

Times Tables

Please log in to Times Table Rockstars and spend 10 minutes practising your times tables each day this week.  Or you may still have a blank times table sheet at home that you can use instead this week.

Numeracy

We are continuing to work through MyMaths to consolidate fractions: the children from Year 5 will be asked to work systematically through the units on fractions starting from Year 2 work as assessments have shown significant gaps in their knowledge of this subject.

Spellings

  1. It’s that time of the week again...spelling test time! Ask someone in your house to test you on your spellings from last week.  Mark them afterwards to see how many you got right.
  2. Our new objective for this week is converting nouns or adjectives into verbs using the suffix –ise. Remember a suffix is a group of letters that we add onto the end of a root word to create a new word. Download one of the two PowerPoint files; if you are using a laptop or computer you should be able to view the PowerPoint presentation, if not, download the pdf version to read the information, but it will not be interactive.
  3. Copy out the new spellings from the handwriting sheet in your neatest handwriting. You can print the handwriting sheet if you want, or you can copy the words from the screen.
  4. In your Home Learning Book, write a spelling sentence for each of this week’s spellings. Remember correct punctuation, correct spelling of other keywords and neat handwriting.
  5. Optional Extra. If you are super keen or have time today (or later in the week) you can have a go at the spelling activity ‘Crack the Code’.

You will then need to use the Phase 3 part of the Grammar pack to help you to identify examples of parts D – J in the text. You can either print this sheet out and stick it in to your Home Learning book and then write on it, underlining and labelling each part or you could write the examples in your book. E.g.

In Guided Reading today, you will be looking at a non-fiction text linked to our topic on Ancient Greece. There are 2 levels of challenge for this task. One is labelled ‘Easier’, one is labelled ‘Challenging’. Please choose ONE to read and answer the relevant questions on.

Read the text carefully. You can read it aloud to an adult or quietly in your head. Then work through the review sheet in the usual way. You could print the sheet, stick it into your Home Learning book and write on it or you could write the answers in your book. Remember to include today’s date and the title: Guided Reading – Modern Greece. You do not need to copy out the questions, just write the question number beside each answer. Remember to answer in full sentences.

Topic

In Topic today, you will continue to find out about Ancient Greece. You are going to complete some research on the 2 city states of Athens and Sparta, finding out how they were similar and how they were different. Use this website link to do your research: http://www.primaryhomeworkhelp.co.uk/greece/athens.htm

The link will take you to the page you will need to use to find out about Athens. Once you have completed the Athens column on your sheet, you will need to choose 'Sparta' from the menu on the left hand side of the screen. This will then take you to the page on Sparta. Please note, there is a typo on the website page and so instead of saying 'Sparta', it says 'Spartsa'!

You could print the review sheet, stick it into your Home Learning book and write on it or you could split a page of your Home Learning book in half and write directly into your book. Remember to include today’s date and the title: Topic – Athens & Sparta.

We are continuing to work through MyMaths to consolidate fractions: the children from Year 5 will be asked to work systematically through the units on fractions starting from Year 2 work as assessments have shown significant gaps in their knowledge of this subject.

Spend one hour on numeracy, like you would in school.

Please note: Your teacher will not know that you have done your home learning unless you log in with your username and password. If you have forgotten your user name and password, please email your class teacher: Class11@holytrinity.bwmat.org or Class12@holytrinity.bwmat.org

If this is challenging for your child, get them to draw their own fraction wall in their homelearning books If this still doesn't help, then it is important they go back to the Year 3 objectives from yesterday or the Year 2 objectives from Monday's work.

If you can please let Mr Freeman know your winning strategy! (Please note: it took Mr Freeman a while to work out a winning strategy that works when you go first against someone who also knows the strategy and will usually work when playing second against someone who does not know the winning strategy)
