Good morning Year 5!  Today, if you are happy to, please would you send me a photograph of you in your home-schooling spot?  I’d like to put them into a collage so we can all see where each other are working!  I’ve been really impressed with the work you have all done this week – well done and enjoy your weekend.

  • Complete the English and maths activities:

    • Bitesize weekly challenge on Seesaw, along with pages 42 and 43 of your CPG book

Good morning Year 5!

 

Today’s work is based upon your CPG books rather than on Seesaw.   This is a good opportunity for you to catch up on any activities you haven’t yet completed and to make sure you’ve read to the end of chapter 10 of The Boy at the Back of the Class.

  •  Complete the reading comprehension about Gertrude Ederle, on pages 2&3 of comprehension book 2.  Later in the week you will be writing an article in this style about a famous refugee.  Whilst you are working on this comprehension, think about the features of this style of writing.
  •  Complete pages 40 and 41 in your maths CPG book on percentages
  • In your spelling book, complete dictation and four in a row on page 49
  • Take a break and watch Bitesize Daily at https://www.bbc.co.uk/iplayer/episodes/p089g0cc/bitesize-911-year-olds

 

In Life-skills last term, we were developing our understanding of the brain and mindfulness.  Attached are some ideas about how to take a mindful moment – try to do three of these today.

In DT this term, we are thinking about preparing food to take on a journey.  Today, I’d like you to plan what food you would pack if you were going travelling.  What would you need to consider?  How would you make sure your food was safe to eat?  What sort of products would you include?

 

Create a slide on Seesaw showing the different food you would prepare and answering the questions above.

 

On a second page, please tell me what meals, if any, you already know how to prepare and what safety rules you consider when cooking.

In music this term, we are thinking about the sea.  The sea has inspired many musicians and music about the sea has been written in many different genres.

 

Listen to “Storm Interlude” by Benjamin Britten at https://www.bbc.co.uk/teach/ten-pieces/intro-films-and-orchestral-films/zv2gqp3, “Under the Sea” from The Little Mermaid at https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=GC_mV1IpjWA  and “This is the Sea” by the Waterboys  https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=GC_mV1IpjWA as three very different examples. 

  • Which of these do you like and why? 

  • Can you find other examples of music inspired by the sea? 

  • Share your research on Seesaw, explaining what music you like the best and why.

 

Remember to do some exercise and keep active.

 

I hope you have a great day!
