Puzzle Club Activities Week Beginning 13th July 2020

It was lovely to see so many of you on Thursday, thank you for making the effort to visit us at school. It was good to hear about all the things that you have been doing both for home learning (including Puzzle Club) and other aspects of your time during lock down. We look forward to seeing some of you again next week. Here are some more puzzles to keep your brain working! Have fun
Mrs Warren

Week Beginning 13th July 2020

Good morning you lovely lot!

Hope you had a wonderful weekend and managed to enjoy the sunshine yesterday? We had such a fantastic time with some of you on Thursday and are already looking forward to seeing you again this week.

Seesaw has been a fabulous way for us to see what you've been up to, but there really is nothing like seeing you where you belong, back in school!heartsmiley

So onto this weeks learning! We know you know what to do- keep it simple, keep it manageable and most of all ENJOY what you're doing. 

See you soooooooon xx

Maths

TIME for a change. . .

We're going to be looking at time this week. There are 5 sessions for you to do - possibly do one session a day (the suggested day is in brackets), or whatever suits you.

 

NOTE: Some of this learning may be new to some of you. For this reason we've chosen some quite detailed PowerPoints to introduce each session - more about those below. However, you should have covered different units of measurement in previous years, and the work we have done on decimals in Year 5 should help with your conversions.

We've also put some extra activities at the bottom and some further maths activities too (don't forget - these are OPTIONAL!). If you really can't get enough maths you could have a look at the workbooks on the Mathletics website, look at BBC Bitesize, or visit the student pages of the NRICH maths website: https://nrich.maths.org/primary for some really challenging games and activities. Similarly, if you have a go but find you are really struggling, then just focus on building those basic number skills on TTRS, Numbots and Mathletics

Have fun!

 

A quick reminder: Some of the PowerPoints are very interactive - this makes them difficult to upload - where this happens, we have split them into parts (clearly labelled) so that you can go through the activities stage by stage. All you have to do is open the PowerPoint part 1, read / work through the slides, then open part 2 , 3 etc when you've finished.

We have put up the PowerPoints in PDF format too. This is to help some of you that may not have compatible Powerpoint software available.

If you are able to open the Powerpoint and it works - great! If not the PDF is there to give you an idea of what was on the Powerpoint. You don't need to look at both.

Resources you will need for English this week:

Creative Challenge

You’ve been doing such a good job with your creative challenges we thought we would let you know about an idea we had to build some recycled plastic bug hotels, and then apply for your Blue Peter Green Badge! This could be done over the next couple of weeks, or you could save it for the summer holidays.

Puzzle Club Activities Week Beginning 6th July 2020

Well done once again for another week of super problem solving. I suspect that many of you are getting quicker and more confident with these activities. You are all brilliant. Keep it up. Please find some more tasks below to keep you busy. Mrs Warren

Week beginning 6th July 2020 (Summer 2 Week 5)

Hurray!!!! It's Monday again!

Another week of great things to see from you guys on Seesaw - and we couldn't be more excited to actually see some of you IN THE ACTUAL FLESH!!!!! on Thursday afternoon in school!

Can you believe we're more than half way through your last half term as Year 5?!! Neither can we!!!

Anyway - same old drill - one piece of Maths and English and a bit of work towards this week's creative challenge per day if you can please! Just do your best- if you are really struggling we know you'll be able to find some other great ways to develop your learning (looks like we've got quite a few budding Bake Off champions from our Zoom meetings last week!).

Maths

Pump up the Volume . . .

We're still looking at converting units of measurement and we'll be focusing mostly on capacity and volume a this week. There are 5 sessions for you to do - possibly do one session a day (the suggested day is in brackets), or whatever suits you.

Wow, wow, wow! You guys continue to impress us in this area, thank you for sharing your work! We know some of you are still working on last weeks tasks so please do not rush these- we can see the efforts you're making!

This week we are uploading activities linked to sustainability, which leads us nicely on from the deforestation and the palm oil learning. These activities are to be completed over the next TWO weeks, and you should choose the activities which interest you the most. We would however like you all to complete Activity One and Two. Enjoy your learning and we can't wait to see what you produce. smiley

 

Puzzle Club Activities Week Beginning 29th June 2020

It is incredible to think that this week we will enter the month of July which is the final calendar month of this school year. You have all been an amazing group of Year 5's and I am sure you will be brilliant Year 6's. Anyway enough of that, you are not quite in Year 6 yet and some of you will be keen to do some more puzzles - so here they are!! Mrs Warren

Week Beginning 29th June 2019 (Summer 2 Week 4)

Hi there Gang! How you all doing?

Well that was a bit of a wet and wild weekend wasn't it? (Probably a good thing we weren't able to go to Glastonbury!)

Let's hope the weather starts to pick up in the week so you can all have fun outside!

As usual your tasks this week are: ONE English, ONE Math and some work towards your Creative Challenge every day.

Even though we put extra activities up these really are optional, and we do know that you are still trying your best to do what you can! I know we've said it before, but if you’re struggling with a particular task or activity find something else to do (Mathletics, Bugclub etc, research a subject you’re really fascinated by or get creative and make something!)

Hopefully you know the drill: we’ve put all of your learning activities up for the whole week, with the resources you will need underneath each one.

Keep in touch on Seesaw, can't wait for our zoom, and have a great week!

 

Oooh - we can't forget this!

PE

Here's a special message from Mr PE himself . . . . Mr Codd! ! !

" This week I am very excited to share a challenge with you. Our friends at Trafford School Sport Partnership (Trafford SSP), who help me to put on festivals, competitions and events for you, want to give Trafford Primary children, their ‘Sports Day.’

They have made a PowerPoint of challenges that I will ask the whole school to get involved in this week. (There will be a letter to all parents to follow, explaining everything)

The challenge is exactly the same for you guys at home, and for those children who are in school. We will all complete the same challenges. WE ARE TEAM WILLOWS!

I want you to take a look at these physical tasks. The PowerPoint below has all 6 challenges that you will need to complete throughout this week.

 Your challenge / task is to have a go at the 6 challenges, that’s all. It won’t necessarily be a competition, but we want as many Willows athletes to join in as possible!

We would like you or your parents to send in your scores to help towards our whole school total (there's a link below for this). This is going to be an in-school / out of school team Willows challenge!

Again, more to come over the next few days but for now…’Team Willows athletes, I call on you to show all of the school games values, and show Trafford what we are made of. We are strong, we are fast, we are TEAM WILLOWS!’

Thank you for all your wonderful pieces of work based on the rainforests. We love seeing the different approaches you all have- and we have also learned quite a lot ourselves! This week we are moving on to look at some elements of deforestation and endangered animals. With a topic like this we know that some of you will have an extra interest in this area, and we would love you to share your knowledge, and teach us!

Again we have put a few different activities up to whet your appetite. You may want to use this week to concentrate on one of the activities, or do all of them.

Enjoy, and we can’t wait to see your work on seesaw!

Wednesday 24th June

Morning everyone, we hope you are all well. smileyYesterday we sent some invitations out for zoom meetings next week.

How long is a piece of string? . . .

We're going to be looking at converting units of measurement over the next few weeks, focusing on length this week. There are 5 sessions for you to do - possibly do one session a day (the suggested day is in brackets), or whatever suits you.

English

Wow, last weeks writing was fantastic.yes We thoroughly loved reading your 'chunks' and we were very impressed with how well you comprehended the film AND included the expected grammar! Who spotted the road sign who interfered in Chunk 1, by stopping the traffic and making Blue and Red Umbrella meet in the first place? What a cheeky sub character!heart

This week we are having a reading focus.

In the comprehension activities we have asked you to summarise each paragraph before you begin answering the questions. The summary should only be a few words but will help you to quickly refer back to the text when answering the questions.(It is an important skills which we want you to concentrate on- just like we would expect in class!) 

NB: If you think this is going to take you quite a lot of time maybe do your summary one day, and your answers the next. It is more important to do it well, than rush through and try to complete all of the sheets!

Resources you will need for English this week (Summer 2 Week 3)

Creative Challenge (Week 2 of Rainforests)

Some fabulous rainforest work emerging, and animals seem quite popular! We've also learned lots about Brazil! Thankyou.laugh

We're attaching a couple of slide shows which may be useful- as you complete your powerpoints/ books. How did you get on with your research?

We also thought if some of you wanted another/ different activity maybe you could:

Make your own Top Trumps game using animals of the rainforest.

So, can you believe it's National School Sports Week! How annoying is it that we cant all be together to celebrate this! sadWe know that you would love to get involved, so we have attached some activities for you to enjoy at home this week....Keep your fingers crossed that the sun shines! smiley Can you manage to do any this week? Don't forget to show us what you can do on Seesaw?

I don’t know about you, but last week FLEW by! Can’t believe we’re into week 2 already!

There was some fantastic learning going on from what we could see on Seesaw – keep it up – but don’t let it get on top of you!

We loved your Treehouse work last week and I have to say your adverts made me want to book a room for next week! Well done!yes

This week we are going to spend the week writing a story based on a film: The Blue Umbrella. A teacher called Jane Constantine is going to introduce you to your tasks. (Ignore some of the timings in the first clip- you're not coming back at 10.30!wink).

Click on each of the links in order, and when she writes her 'Chunk 2' take care to listen to how she thinks out loud. We want you to copy that thought process when you're writing! Enjoy, and we can't wait to see what you produce!heart

Congratulations! You have made us SO PROUD for a whole half term, and we've not even been to school! We really are VERY LUCKY teachers!heartheartheart

Before you get started on today's tasks give yourselves a little pat on the back and watch this clip!

Lot of love Mrs Unwin and Mrs Evans xxxxx

Here are today's tasks:

Maths

Some truly terrific translation work from you lot this week - it looks like we might have some budding Chess Grandmasters among us!

As it's the end of term (YAY!!!), we've just put up a selection of extra translation activities for you to pick and choose from.

Have FUN! 

English

Bravo for some super, fantasmagorical planning yesterday! I can not wait to read your texts!

Today is the day we write it up........who was that groaning? (We heard you!wink) We know it's the last day of this half term but lets end it with a bang, and write about that strange creature you have created!

  • Write up your text using yesterday's planning.
  • Edit your work for capital letters and full stops (and any other punctuation we nag you about!)
  • Edit your work to check you have included the grammar we have covered this week.

Creative Challenge

Hopefully you're well on your way to nearly finishing the acts of kindness! It's been lovely to see some of your posts! 

Continue to be kind my little angels and always remember - 'No act of kindness, no matter how small, is ever wasted'.

Thursday 21st May

Stay humble, work hard, be kind.

Goooood Mooooooorning campers!

We hope you too full advantage of that glorious sunshine yesterday! It was ice lollies and suns screen all round, for us! 

Here's something to wake your brain up this fine morning: 

What starts with an e, ends with an e and only has one letter in it?.............................An envelope of course!!!!!

What travels the world, but stays in one place?............................................................A stamp!

We knew you'd like them!smileycrying

I don't know about you but printer ink in our houses is in short supply.....and the shops haven't got any in at the moment!  Don't forget if you can read an activity on the screen maybe you don't need to print out all the sheets?

Anyway onto today's tasks. Here we go........

Maths

We are so impressed with your work on translation! We need to move it up a notch! Can you guess how?

Open the Word document for some clues . . .

English

Your work yesterday was fantastic! What strange creatures some have you createdenlightened-we can't wait to learn about them!yes

Today, you will see a planning sheet attached, and an instruction to 'write' at the bottom. The instruction to write is for tomorrows task. We want you to spend your time (yes spend your time.....especially those of you who want to just jot one or two ideas down and say you've finished wink!!!!) thinking about all you have learned this week and put it into a plan ready to write tomorrow.

We have included Monday's original piece so you can reread it and notice how the author has used all the elements you've looked at this week.

  • Re read Mondays information text by Ted Splorer. Note the features we have used this week. Underline any vocabulary you might use tomorrow. (Can you improve this vocabulary and improve it by using a thesaurus?)
  • Look at your own creature and begin the planning stage, ready for your writing. Think about the grammar and vocabulary we have explored.
  • If you have time, remind yourself what a modal verb is by looking at: https://www.bbc.co.uk/bitesize/articles/znd26v4 (It seems a long time since we set these as your spellings!)

 

Wednesday 20th May

One kind word can change someone's entire day.

Morning to all you kind kids out there. Happy Wednesday!

Awwe, we are loving seeing all your acts of kindness this week. heartheartheart We know you will have made someone else smile- and we know that it makes you feel great if someone else is smiling. A while ago we read a book called: Have you filled a Bucket Today? (Some of you might remember.) Before you begin your activities, click on the link below to enjoy the message.

 

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=JEg38zCOMgk

 

I wonder how many times you will fill your own buckets, while filling someone else's? Doesn't it make you feel good when you make someone else smile?heart

Have a wonderful day you happy campers!

We miss you lots! (PS your Seesaw posts will fill our buckets up!)

Maths

The fabulous work on translation continues - keep it up Year 5!

Today we are going to learn about identifying translated shapes.

 

Just the one Powerpoint today - have a look at it and then have a go at the activities / questions on the worksheets - choose the level which you feel is most appropriate for you. Again, if you are unsure of the explanations, or you don't have the right equipment to attempt some of the tasks, then please feel free to leave these questions and concentrate on the ones you can do. However, if you want to just "freestyle" and have a go anyway, then by all means do!

 

NB

Sometimes the Powerpoint files are too large to upload - if that's the case we will split them in to two parts and upload parts A and B. Hopefully they should work for you!

Thank you so much for your fabulous work yesterday. Some of the grammar was pretty tricky! Remember if you are finding it really difficult DON'T WORRY- just do what you can. When you come back to school we will be able to explain it so it makes sense. yesToday, we are going to begin to think about the planning stage, ready to write your own piece on Friday. (You will be able to recognise some similarities with our Fantastic Beasts work.)

Today:

  • Work through the activities booklet.
  • Create your own creature (Make sure you use animals that you know something about already as this will be the creature you will write about). We can't wait to see what you come up with. You might also want to draw your new creature.

Have fun!

"Kindness is the mark we leave behind in the world"- RAKtivist

Good morning gang,

How was your Monday? Did anyone spot a Rhisawnozebtah while out walking yesterday?......no neither did we! wink

We did see lots of lovely flowers in full bloom though. Talking of which, what did one flower say to the other?......"Hi Bud!" Phahahahah! You thought (...hoped!) we had forgotten about the jokes didn't you?crying

Super work again everyone, Seesaw was on fire! We especially loved the wonderful acts of kindness. heart You really are a luuurvely bunch!heart

Have a happy Tuesday.

PS: Are you still keeping your bedrooms tidy?cheeky

Maths

It looked like quite a few of you enjoyed yesterday’s work on translation – there were some great line dancing moves on Seesaw!

 

Today we are going to learn about drawing translated shapes.

 

Have a look at the Powerpoints and then have a go at the activities / questions on the worksheets - choose the level which you feel is most appropriate for you. Again, if you are unsure of the explanations, or you don't have the right equipment to attempt some of the tasks, then please feel free to leave these questions and concentrate on the ones you can do. However, if you want to just "freestyle" and have a go anyway, then by all means do!

We've put two different Powerpoints for you to look at (ONLY IF YOU CHOOSE TO!)

The second one delves a bit deeper and looks at translating with coordinates. You might want to do a bit more work on the concepts or another Powerpoint might help you to understand / remember a bit better. 

The sheets / activities related to each Powerpoint are directly below. 

We've also added PDF versions of the Powerpoints if that helps too!

 

NB

Sometimes the Powerpoint files are too large to upload - if that's the case we will split them in to two parts and upload parts A and B. Hopefully they should work for you! laugh

 

English

So the Rhisawnozebtah has made it's mark on Timperley! There were also some VERY interesting creatures littering Seesaw yesterday too! Keep them coming, we heartheartheart'd them!

Today we are continuing with the same theme.

  • Before we begin the grammar element of the writing booklet we would like you to recap how to use brackets and insert parenthesis into your writing by watching: https://www.bbc.co.uk/bitesize/articles/zn8c47h and completing Activity 1 and 2.  
  • Re-read the information passage from yesterdays writing booklet (we've re attached below)
  • Complete today's activities from the sheet attached below.

Monday 18th May 

“No act of kindness, no matter how small, is ever wasted.” ...

Happy Maginficent, Marvellous, Magical, Majestic, Monumental Monday Y5! 

We hope you had a wonderful weekend with your family and have been enjoying yourselves. Can you believe it is the last week of this half term! Wow!

This week is: Mental Health Awareness Week 2020. Which means that it's a great time to stop and think about how we feel, how we make others feel and what we can do to help ourselves feel happy and connected to each other.heart You know how much we both love a quote....well, we have found a few which we really liked. It would be lovely if you created your own quotes to support this weeks theme of 'Kindness.' You could share them with someone at home. smileyMaybe you could extend this to a different family member, a neighbour or even a friend.heart

Have a look at the quotes below. How do they make you feel? Do they inspire you? Do they make you feel calm? Maybe they make you feel something different? Talk to your adult to see if they feel the same way?

 

  • Try to be a rainbow in someone else's cloud.” ...
  • “You can always, always give something, even if it is only kindness!” ...
  • “A single act of kindness throws out roots in all directions, and the roots spring up and make new trees. ..

 

We particularly liked this last quote. What do you think it means?

We also really liked the following quote, and thought it was quite relevant to our situation today. What does this mean to you?

 

  • YOU MAY NOT CONTROL ALL THE EVENTS THAT HAPPEN TO YOU, BUT YOU CAN DECIDE NOT TO BE REDUCED BY THEM.  Maya Angelou

 

Again, this week we have our daily Maths activity, English activity and a Creative Challenge. In addition to this Mrs Warren has included some Puzzle Club activities (you've probably already spotted these) and we shall also leave some extra math's work under today's post. Remember to check with your adult to see if they would be something you would like to do.

Have a great day and see you tomorrow smiley

Maths

There was some fabulous work with 2D and 3D shape last week – it looks like you’re enjoying having a break from number work! Well, this week let’s carry on with some more geometry (shape and space – remember?) specifically we will be having a good look at position and direction.

 

For Monday we are going to find out about translation. . . “What’s that?” I hear you ask, ‘This is supposed to be maths, not languages!”

Well – in maths translation just means moving something from one position to another.

 

Have a look at the Powerpoints and then have a go at the activities / questions on the worksheets - choose the level which you feel is most appropriate for you. Just like last week, if you are unsure of the explanations, or you don't have the right equipment to attempt some of the tasks, then please feel free to leave these questions and concentrate on the ones you can do. However, if you want to just "freestyle" and have a go anyway, then by all means do!

We've put two different Powerpoints for you to look at (ONLY IF YOU CHOOSE TO) - You might want to do a bit more work on the concepts or another Powerpoint might help you to understand / remember a bit better. 

The sheets / activities related to each Powerpoint are directly below. 

We've also added PDF versions of the Powerpoints if that helps too!

 

PS

 There’s a bit of Line Dancing involved in the first powerpoint, so if you want to show us your moves, we would love to see them on Seesaw!

English

Last week we spent some time looking at some comprehensions and using our inference skills. This week we are going to focus on our writing. We would like you to work though the attached booklet and learn about the Rhi-swano-zeb-tah! Yes, you read it correctly- The Rhi-sawno- zeb- tah! Have you seen one recently?wink 

All this will be in preparation for writing your own story on Friday. (Some of you might also draw some comparisons with the text: Fantastic Beasts and where to find themangel)

  1. Read through the introductory text and click on the links when directed.
  2. Complete the writing activity sheets.

We have also uploaded 2 spelling activities (Y5 and 6 words) please can you complete them over the course of the week. 

Creative Challenge

As we mentioned earlier, the theme for this week is kindness. We have uploaded 27 acts of kindness that we would like you to complete this week. We would suggest doing maybe 4 a day?? But you are all old enough to decide for yourselves how you would like to split the acts. If you are able to upload a picture of you doing the act of kindness (some you won't have the option to) then please do! We may even post some pictures of us doing them as well! Enjoy guys and remember - 'Kindness costs nothing, but means everything'.

Additional  Math tasks: Week Beginning 18th May

Please make sure you are confident with your 2D shapes and can describe the number of parallel sides, perpendicular lines, lines of symmetry and angle size.

To extend this week's work can you please:

  • Produce a poster to share the differences between a scalene, an isosceles, an equilateral and a right angled triangle. Which of these triangles has perpendicular lines?
  • Produce a poster to show the differences between a kite, a square, a rhombus, a parallelogram and a trapezium. Are these all quadrilaterals? How do you know? What makes them different?

Last week we looked at the properties of shapes and found out that all angles of a triangle add up to 180 degrees. The angles of a straight line also add up to 180 degrees. We have attached some work to help you develop this knowledge, as well as including a few extra sheets to help deepen your understanding of geometry.

 

Puzzle Club Activities - Week Beginning 11th May 2020

I have been so impressed with how you are all working and posting your learning on SeeSaw. I have heard from some of your parents that quite a few of you would like some more learning to do!!

What a lot of fabulous reading/ artistic skills yesterday! Make sure when you infer, you use examples from the text to support your ideas. 

Today is the final day of our Reading Week- next week we will have a writing focus!

Here are your task's:

  • Complete B and C of the inference tasks.
  • Complete the Florence Nightingale comprehension (We should have done this earlier in the week to support International Nurses Day. After reading this text do you now know why people put a light in the window to show support for nurses?)
  • Read a chapter of your reading book and summarise the main ideas/ points. 
  • Write a list of questions which you think about while reading this chapter. They could be about the characters, the plot, the setting. (Don't forget those question marks?)

 

Thursday 14th May

Good morning gang,

How are we doing today? How is your exercise going? We saw on Blue Peter that there is a chance for you to get your hands on one of the new sports badges! All you have to do is take up a new activity, and practice it for at least 5 days. We think that is a challenge that needs taking!

We are going to take up skipping and see how we get on after 5 days! Maybe you could try too, and once we are back at school we could have a SKIP OFF! Who would win....you????....Mrs Unwin????....Mrs Evans???? Who knows? 

Let us know if you get involved, we would love to see your new skills!

Here are today's activities:

 

Maths

Amazing work with shape so far this week, Year 5! Keep it up!

Anyway.....Where were we? Ah Yes!.....

2D is sooo yesterday! We're going to spend the rest of the week having a look at 3D shapes. Like previous days, have a look at the Powerpoints and then have a go at the questions on the worksheets - choose the level which you feel is most appropriate for you. 

If you are unsure of the explanations, or you don't have the right equipment to attempt to draw or measure shapes, then please feel free to leave these questions and concentrate on the ones you can do. However, if you want to just "freestyle" and have a go anyway, then by all means do!

Your comprehension this week has been fabulous, really very well done.yes 

Today we are would like you to do some more reading:

  • Work through the power point at your own pace and draw as you go. Don't rush the activity as we want you to think about what you know with out being told. We want you to practice your INFERENCE SKILLS. These are really important skills when we read as we need to make connections and infer what the author is telling us- with out them having to tell us directly! 

If you finish and would like some more practice please open the task sheet.

  • Read through passage A (Don't go on to passage B) 
  • Draw a detailed picture of what you've read
  • Answer the questions.

Spelling: Please correct the errors on the sheet below and create a word search.

Good luck 

Wednesday 13th May

Morning all,

How art though? Should I compare thee to a summers day? Now is the winter of discontent. To be or not to be, that is the question!? Hope you enjoyed your Shakespeare work yesterday? If you’ve not already read it, we would recommend ‘To Wee or Not To Wee’ by Pamela Butchart for a fun retelling of some of Shakespeare’s plays.

More great work was produced yesterday! Year 5’s are on fire!yes We think you’re AMAZING! We are also noticing some of your adults are pretty impressive with the scissors too! There are some VERY smart hair cut’s happening all over Timperley. Not sure these have quite reached the Willows staff……but it’s something for us to aim for!wink

Annnny way, enough of this chatter-- it’s off to work we go (can I hear the seven dwarfs?)Hi, ho, hi, ho……

Have a fabulous Wednesday and we’ll see you tomorrow

Monday 11th May

Gooooooooood Mooooooorning Aaaalllllll!

Hope you had a lovely weekend enjoying the V.E. celebrations and managed to have lots of time playing in the sunshine! It was glorious wasn't it? Today, we are really missing hearing all about your weekends!broken heart 

 

We have been SO impressed with your work over the last few weeks, and some of you V.E. work really was fantastic to see! Thank you so much for sharing all the extra information.smiley You really are doing a marvelous job of working at home! 

 

This week, our learning is going to be slightly (but not that much) different. We still want you to do a Math's activity, English activity and the Creative Challenge but, because you are all working so well, we are also going to add some additional Math's work and Mrs Warren is going to upload some Puzzle Club activities.

 

We know you are all working in very different ways at the moment so it is really important that you discuss (with your grown up) whether you think the extra materials would be fun, and suitable for you to do. The extra math's tasks will be uploaded every week and they will link to our weekly learning focus. There might also be some sheets to remind you of some of the skills we have already learned this year too. smiley 

You will be able to find the Puzzle Club activities at the top of our page and the additional Math's activities will be posted at the end of Monday's post. (If you get lost please ask us on Seesaw)

Also, don't forget to keep looking at your Mathletic's account which also shows you the topics which we were hoping to teach you in the classroom, and TTRS needs using every day if you want to stay super speedy!wink

 

Have a good day and don't forget to upload your work to Seesaw. Your efforts really brighten our day. 

Happy Monday heart

Mrs Unwin and Mrs Evans

 

Maths

You have done such a brilliant job with all of your maths learning so far, and your Seesaw posts show just how much maths work you have got through! For the next couple of weeks we're going to give you a well-deserved break from number work in your main maths activity, and focus on some geometry (shape and space to you and me!)

 

For Monday we are going to find out about regular and irregular polygons.

Have a look at the Powerpoints and then have a go at the questions on the worksheets - choose the level which you feel is most appropriate for you.

We've put two different Powerpoints for you to look at (ONLY IF YOU CHOOSE TO) - You might want to do a bit more work on the shapes or another Powerpoint might help you to understand / remember a bit better. 

The sheets / activities related to each Powerpoint are directly below. 

We've also added PDF versions of the Powerpoints if that helps too!

English

This week in English we are going to have a reading focus.

As well as completing today's activities please could you upload a photograph/note to tell us what you are currently reading and a quick message about why you like  the book you are reading. Once we know this we might set you an activity linked to your own text.smiley

 

Reading Activity: Today we would like you to complete the attached comprehension (Decide if you are going to complete 1 star, 2,star or 3 star-the most challenging.) Remember you need to look back in the text to help you answer the questions. Before you begin the questions:

  • Read the text through once.
  • Read the text a second time, and underline any key words which are relevant to the main idea.
  • Identify and investigate any new vocabulary/ unknown words.
  • Answer the questions.
  • Check your answers and evaluate how thorough your answers were. What skills could you improve for next time?

EXTENSION: Please think about how the text is written. Is it fact or fiction? What are the features of the text? How has the author written it? 

 

Grammar Activity: Please complete the attached worksheet. Again the re are 3 different levels of difficulty. We recommend you all begin on 1 star to remind yourself of the grammar, and then complete a second sheet if you feel confident to do so.

Creative Challenge

So – you must know by now how much we love a random Creative Challenge! Well this one is certainly random, but should give you the chance to get SUPER creative and prove to be lots of fun along the way!

Have a look at the ‘Task Intro’ to find out what we want you to do, then work your way through the stages in the ‘Task Help Sheet’.

 

This challenge is designed to last the whole week, so you might want to do one or two of the stages each day, or go crazy and do the whole thing in one go!

Right – get cracking! We can’t wait to see what you come up with on Seesaw at the end of the week!

OK Go!

Additional  Math tasks: Week Beginning 11th May

These sheets have been uploaded to compliment this weeks Math's learning (above). They do however go on to look at different types of triangles, and explore the fact that the sum of angles in a triangle add up to 180 degrees. 

If you already know this, maybe you want to investigate, and revise different quadrilaterals; investigating if all angles of a quadrilateral add up to 360 degrees. Why is this double the sum of angles of a triangle?

If you complete these tasks please create a poster to demonstrate your knowledge and understanding. If you want to extend yourself even further use 'Scratch' or 'Scratch Jnr' to 'show' us what you know. 

We also love Hour of Code's: Code With Anna and Elsa https://studio.code.org/s/frozen/stage/1/puzzle/1. to support your learning on angles. 

We've also added some additional number sheets moving on from the fraction, decimal and percentage work we've already done. Remember a percentage is always out of 100 which gives you a fraction straight away. Once you have a fraction /10, /100, /1000 etc you know the decimal because you can notice the place value of each digit. Can you devise a poster to show me the equivalent fraction, decimals and percentages which you know?

Remember these tasks are for all week.

Good luck smiley

Thursday 7th May

Good morning gang! Happy, nearly V.E. Day!

So, it seems we DO have some contenders for: 'Who is the funniest Y5!' Thanks so much for your jokes! Some of them really made us laugh VERY loudly! There were so many to choose from. We never really doubted you (honestly we didn'twink) We knew you were funny, really!laugh. Enjoy:

 

Do you know, my dog's got no nose!

How does he smell?

............Terrible!!!!! PHAHAHAHAHAHA!crying

 

A man was walking down the street and his coat caught fire! Someone yelled, "Hey you! Your coat is on fire!"

............."I know, it's a blazer."  PHAHAHAHAHAHAHcrying

 

And finally....as it's so topical!

What should you eat to celebrate VE Day?..............Victory- ia Sponge!!!! PHAHAHAHHAHA!crying

 

Anyway, enough of the jokes, lets get back to today's activities.

We hope you have a lovely Thursday. Enjoy any V.E. Day celebrations, and take care. We will see you (sort of) on Monday heartxx

PS. We Miss you LOTS, and LOTS, and LOTSheartbroken heart

 

Maths

Your extra activities today involve co-ordinates. So:

  • Look at the co- ordinates poster to remind yourself of how to write a co-ordinate. Remember the X axis goes A CROSS horizontally, and the Y axis is the vertical line. 0 is the Origin. Now, using this knowledge complete the helicopter challenge and get plotting those co- ordinates!  (If you can't print it out it's very easy to draw your own grid with 4 quadrants IF you use a rulerwink)
  • If you have time, play a game of Battle Ships using 4 quadrants (MA on the sheet). 
  • If you finish, and still have time have a go at the HA game.

English

Great work yesterday. Today you have a choice of thee activities (Or, all if you fancy them!)

  • The first is: imagine it is 1945, you are the Prime Minister and you have to make a speech addressing the nation- just as Winston Churchill did 75 years ago. Using yesterday's speech as an influence (please include your new vocabulary) write and present your own speech. Be as creative as you like. Maybe you want to add posters, get dressed up and video yourself? Or you may want to use iMovies to present your ideas?  
  • The second: watch Bitesize revising alliteration and onomatopoeia https://www.bbc.co.uk/bitesize/articles/zn26hbk. This clip reminded us of the work we did when we read Goodnight Mr. Tom. We could just imagine Willie on the station with all the other children who were waiting to be evacuated. We could hear the sounds of people, the sobbing of mothers, the sounds of engines etc. Please create your own poem using alliteration and onomatopoeia to bring this scene to life. (Also, learn to spell onomatopoeia- its just taken us 3 attempts to get it correct!wink)
  • Finally, you might want to create your own Powerpoint celebrating all you have learned this week. We know some of you have done lots of your own research and learned things which we haven't shared. We would love to see how you want to use/ present this learning.

Creative Challenge

We loooved yesterdays sneaky peeks, but today is the BIG DAY....and we cant wait to see those dance routines! Who has found some 1940s music to compliment their performance?

Creative Challenge

Your planes yesterday were magnificent! We especially enjoyed watching those of you who took them out to test the aerodynamics! Superb work!

To celebrate V.E.DayThe Royal Mint have designed a commemorative coin. Your task is to design your own commemorative coin or a VE Day medal. You could think about the following ideas when designing yours: the years of the war; the colours of the ally flags or a reference to how the war was fought (land, air and sea). We've attached a sheet to help you begin, although you can be as creative as you like.

You might want to use technology, paint, collage, crayons etc. We are sure you have some fantastic ideas of your own but we did spot this clip and wondered if it could be incorporate into your design; especially linking the rainbow? :https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=KX19xFfaRo8

Enjoy smiley

 

Monday 4th May

EEK.....We're trying so hard to resist it........but........no we cant help it! MAY THE 4TH BE WITH YOU!!!! Phahahahahahahahahahahahah!!!! Are we the only ones laughing? cheekycheekycheekycheekycheeky

Have a go at this one then. What do you call an invisible droid?.....C-through- PO! hahahaha......no?!.......Really???

How about: What do you call it when only one Star Wars characters gives you a round of applause?.......A Hand Solo!!!.....

Or: Why is Yoda such a good gardener?......because he has a green thumb!......... Oh, come on! We've got to get a small chuckle, if only for effort!angel

(We have actually just finished watching The Empire Strikes Back as we write this post! So we feel especially inspiredlaugh)

 

So, we are back to Monday morning and ready to get back into the swing of things. Talking of 'swing' (as in the dance) we are heading back to the 1940's this week. Your WWII learning- from Term 1- will come in very helpful as we build up to the V.E. Day anniversary. On quite a serious note though, while planning your work we drew many comparisons with some of the things which we are all currently experiencing. If you recognise anything similar, or draw any comparisons, make sure you talk to your adult and tell them how it's made you feel, or what you have noticed.

 

So here are today's tasks: Enjoy! 

PS: We have to say your bedrooms were VERY tidy on Friday! Well done. How do they look this morning?wink

Maths

This week we will continue with Whiterose, (we are now up to date) reminding us about multiplication and division..

https://whiterosemaths.com/homelearning/year-5/

Your additional activity is going to last for the next 2 days and involves some rationing planning. I have attached some WWII recipes which may help your decision making.

English

We have to add another, 'Congratulations,' to those of you who uploaded your, The Game story on Friday. They were a fantastic read and you all tried so hard with your structure and punctuation. Well done.yes

Today, before we move onto the main section please recap the rules for using inverted commas (speech marks).

  • Please complete the full Bitesize lessons titled Punctuation and Inverted Commas. Click on this link to get started: 
  • https://www.bbc.co.uk/bitesize/articles/zb2wjhv
  • Now, please click on the Powerpoint attached below and read through.
  • Summarise the contents of the Powerpoint, remembering to identify the key words/ events. Please take note of the subheadings at the top of each slide.
  • Please illustrate your summary.

Creative Challenge

This week we are going to use the 75th Anniversary of VE Day (Victory In Europe) to influence our creative challenges.

On May 8th, 2020 it will be 75 years since allied forces formally announced the surrender of Germany, ending the Second World War in Europe.

Since being in lockdown, we have all heard of the bravery and resilience of Captain, sorry Colonel Tom Moore who, as well as raising money for the NHS, served with the Royal Air Force during WWII. On his 100th birthday Spitfire and Hurricane planes honoured him by flying overhead in a flypast.heart

Today, you are going to make a Spitfire and/or Lancaster Bomber. We have attached a 2D and 3D sheet which you can print out and make. If you don't have access to a printer have a go at drawing and colouring the 2D model. Look carefully at the symmetry as you draw it. 

 

Before you begin please watch this clip of a Spitfire which has recently been restored. It has quite a special story. 

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Oh1S-C1r_mA

 

If you have time, research the different roles the Spitfire, Hurricane and Lancaster Bombers played during WWII.

Friday 1st May

Good morning all!

Can you believe it's Friday already? It's been a bit harder this week hasn't it? I'm not sure these extra 'wet' play times have helped us!

It really was fantastic, and made us VERY, VERY HAPPY! heart What cool, creative, and collaborative pieces of work you produce!

Hello everyone, 

I don't know about you but I am in need of some jokes right now..... so first up for Tuesday morning:

  • A ham sandwich walks into a cafe and orders a burger...The waiter said, " Sorry, we don't serve food in here."
  • Why did the music teacher need a ladder?........To reach the high notes!!!!!
  • What did the ground say the the earthquake?.....You crack me up!!!

 

We hope you are all doing ok? We were saying how hard it is being away from our normal lives, and how hard it can be to stay motivated. We can see from your posts that you are doing brilliantly yesbut if you are working  by yourself and something doesn't quite make sense, please don't worry. Also if you complete something super quickly head over to:

  • mathletics, bugclub,TTRS or
  • create a word search with your spellings, or
  • devise a crossword with some new vocabulary or
  • create a dance routine to your favourite song - ready to teach us when we go back to school! Maybe we could have a Mrs Unwin v Mrs Evans dance off!winkcheeky )

 

(Ps I said yesterday I would post the answers for the math's mystery task........I didn't realise I'd already included them! Oops!)

 

Tasks for today:

It was great seeing your answers on Seesaw.  You all did very well.  Rounds 3 and 4 are below - Geography and Music.  You can also find the answers to yesterday's questions to get your score so far.

Monday 20th April

Good morning gang,

We hope you've had a lovely weekend.

We absolutely loved seeing all your hard work last week and who knew that we had so many budding journalists and artists? yes 

We have also been super impressed with your math's problem solving strategies- we noticed that some of you have been challenging your adults too! Did anyone manage to decipher how French Decimal Time works?(Wednesday's math's puzzle)

Keep up the good work.smiley

 

This week in Maths we will continue to follow the White Rose materials (so we are all at a similar stage when we return to school) and just like last week there will be another activity or problem to solve underneath. Don't feel that you have to do the additional activity; it is just there if you have extra time, or if want a bit more of a stretch. You might even decide to create a similar problem to share with your adults if you want to challenge yourself. You can also go to Mathletics where you will find more activities on decimals. 

 

In English we are going to use one document for the next 2 weeks. PLEASE don't race through the activities! The idea is to have some fun while thinking about your learning, and consolidate what you already know. You don't need to rush through it. Think about the things we talk to you about, or mention (did someone say....nag!angel) about every day.

Have you seen, or heard of the film Jumanji? (Do you know the original film came out in 1995?)

Over the next 2 weeks your English activities are going to be based on the idea of the game Jumanji. No worries if you've never heard of it, all will become clear as the week goes on.smiley

We are going to attach a PDF document that you are going to need for the full 2 weeks. Take care to read our instructions everyday so that you don't race ahead. We will tell you which point to stop at every day. 

Have fun! 

 

Maths 

 

If you have time: Now that Easter is over, the mystery at the Mega- Chocca- Dooby Chocolate manufacturers needs to be solved and they would like your help.

Please click on the link below and see if you can solve the mystery! (We shall post the answers later)

 

English

Please click on the link below and follow the instructions until Page 5. In the instructions you are going to :

  • Learn Jumanji is a game with consequences.
  • Recognise that this is a 'Finding Tale' and look at the story plan. (MC means Main Character)
  • Read about Danny and Susie's game.
  • Predict what you think might happen next.
  • Stop (Tomorrow we will look how close our predictions were.)

Tuesday 14th April

 

Hello Year Five, welcome back to the Summer Term!

 

We hope you managed to enjoy the sunshine and spend some special time with your family- we also wonder how many Easter Eggs are still left?wink We are having to consider how to eggs-ercise this week to keep ourselves active! 

 

It would be lovely to be back at school and see you all, but we continue making history and need to carry on with some learning activities from home. 

 

Remember if you find anything a little bit confusing, or a little bit unclear don't worry about it. Move onto something else and when we are back at school we can help you. We know that reading instructions can sometimes be tricky!

 

This 1/2 term we will be putting up a Math's activity, an English activity and a creative activity.

In future we might not always mention them, but we would like you to continue to access your Mathletics, NUMBOTS, Bug Club etc accounts and everyday we would like you to:

  • Spend 20 minutes on TTRs
  • 30 minutes reading 
  • Continue with your spelling booklet every day. (10 words a week)
  • Complete some physical exercise.

 

Maths: (We are all going to complete the same tasks)

Please click on the link:

 https://whiterosemaths.com/homelearning/year-5/

  1. We would like you to click on Week 1 and complete Day 1 (Decimals up to 2 decimal places)
  2. Watch the video which will talk you through the learning. You can pause it, or rewind, as many times as you might need.
  3. Click on 'Get The Activity' and answer the questions. (Remember to have another look at the video if you're stuck)
  4. Find out how you did by clicking on the answers. If you made some errors do you know where you went wrong?

 

If you have time, play this game either with an adult or online:

Creative challenge 

 

Using ONLY 3 Sheets of paper (newspaper, A3, or A4) and 2 elastic bands (hair bobbles) make a construction that can hold the weight of a reading book.

 

All materials MUST be used, and the book should be elevated at least 5cm from the ground. Take a photo as proof.  We're hoping that you'll soon be able to send us these .  Watch this space!

 

Good Luck!

 

Friday 27th March  

 

Did you know we have a visible Space Station above us?  We looked for it last night and saw it! It was amazing!

 

We also had to research what it would be like to  live in a space station and learned more than we expected! What do you already know about space stations? Can you find out who is living on the one that we can see? How long will they be there and what are they doing? I wonder if they know we are learning from home at the moment?

 

If you've not seen it talk to your parents and see when would be the best time for you to look for it. You can find the details here:

 https://spotthestation.nasa.gov/sightings/view.cfm?country=United_Kingdom&region=England&city=Manchester#.XnzQAYj7TIU

 

I wonder do you know which direction your house faces, N, S, E, W? Can you be more specific?

 

On the topic of space......we hadn't forgotten.....What do astronauts drink in the morning?.........Gravi tea!!!! (Get it Gravi.....TEA, Gravity!!!!! We are super proud of how 'on topic' our jokes are!!!!!!) 

 

Mmmmmm..... Do we sense some Y5 eye rollers ? We think its funny!

 

WE MISS YOU!!!!

This is the last of your Home Learning updates for 2 weeks (tasks will resume on Tuesday 14th April), but remember to visit the website to read Mrs Warrens's 'thought for the day' behind the sunflower icon. We would like you to try to read every day and to use Mathletics, NumBots and TTRS to keep your Maths skills improving. Try to get up to date with any Mathletics / Spag.com tasks set and have another go if you think you can improve your scores. 

 

Here are Friday's tasks:

 

  • TTRs
  • Read Mrs Warren's page. Look at her 'blogg' and the 'Thought For The Day.' 
  • 30 minutes reading - a book / article of your choice or Bugclub
  • 9 am workout with Joe Wicks on PE with Joe -  Youtube 'The Body Coach TV' (The muscles in our legs are starting to ache now!)
  • OR 3 different 5-a-day activities

Once you have completed the reading comprehension:

Complete your SPAG. COM activities. 

Can you find evidence of how the grammar is used in the book you're reading? 

 

 

Mrs Unwin: Maths

It's Friday! Let's Sing!

COMPUTING

I always enjoy our Friday afternoon computing sessions.  So, just to keep your coding on track, try and complete an hour of code!  We've used it before.  Look for an activity that appeals and then give it a go!  https://hourofcode.com/uk

We wish you a very happy time over the Easter holidays. Keep following the rules, and hopefully we will see you very soon.heart

 

In the meantime, we couldn't find a Y5 Easter song so we thought we would send you this instead!

Mrs Unwin's Maths

WARNING!!! Today's work sheet DOES have the answers attached! (PLEASE only use these to check them once you've finished, or to help you if you are struggling to understand the methods.)

 

Once you open the links you will see 3 different sheets which have stars at the bottom. 

The stars link to ALL, MOST and SOME and I am confident that you can decide where you think you need to start. I am most proud of how well you ALL evaluate your own learning. smiley

 

ALL= 1 star

MOST= 2 stars

SOME= 3 stars

Your extension is to write your own word problems which will stretch your fraction knowledge.

Good Luck!

Mrs Evan's Maths

Hello, today in Math's we are Subtracting Fractions. Have a look at the 'Power Point' and then answer the questions on the next sheet. If you get stuck have another look at the power point which should help you.

Remember to think carefully about the denominator.

Good Luck!

ART TASK

 

The focus for the first lesson is ' drawing feathers'. Have a look through the lesson presentation that will show you lots of different pictures of feathers. The 'learning task' will give you further instructions. Have fun!

Y5 Literacy: Tuesday

Below are the Maths lessons set for each group this morning:

 

MRS EVANS MATHS

Please have a look at the Powerpoint on Subtracting Fractions.

Unfortunately the file was too large to save in interactive form so all of the answers are instantly there - lucky you!

However, I would still like you to take a good look at each slide with your helper and discuss what is going on with the fractions at each stage.

Then you can have a go at the related worksheet PDF. There are 3 levels of challenge - 1 Star Easy, 2 Stars Medium and 3 Stars Hardest. The answers follow each of the levels as they appear, so please just use these as a check after you have had a go.

Don't worry if you can't print the sheets out - just choose a level and copy out the calculations into your Home Learning book.

Colouring the Stained glass design is not necessary, but please do so if you like. smiley

Mrs Unwin Maths

SCIENCE

 

Below are all the resources you need to explore the Advantages and Disadvantages of Adaptation.  There is an activity to go along with this.  The PowerPoint also talks about Human Intervention but there is no task for you to do - it's just for your information.  There is no expectation on you to print resources out.  You could draw the table into your home learning book.

 

If you can, open the PowerPoint to enjoy the interactivity of the presentation.  If you don't have the PowerPoint software, the PDF version is there too.

Happy Monday morning everyone!

We hope you have had a lovely weekend.

 

Welcome to day 1 of lessons at home.

Remember, before you begin the most important things we want you to do EVERYDAY are your Times Tables Rock Stars, and at least 30 minutes of reading (We would also like you to summarise what you’ve read, either verbally to an adult, or on paper.)

If you find you’re not quite sure of what we have set please DON’T WORRY! (It might be that we need to change some things, as we are learning how to do this too!) Instead go and read, do one of your spelling activities, Times Tables Rock Stars…..or something you think will be relevant to YOUR learning (It might be an activity we do in class that you really enjoy eg making wordsearches or planning a Math's investigation) We trust you to make these decisions, and know that you will make great choices. J

 

We are sure your grown-ups have lots of ideas about how to support your learning, but these links might also be useful if you run out of stories.

They might also want to subscribe to https://www.twinkl.co.uk/resources/class-management/school-closure-home-learning-classroom-management-key-stage-1-year-1-year-2. We will be using some of these resources this week.

 

How to expect your work:  All Year 5 will have the same Literacy learning, and from Tuesday your Math's group should expect a slightly different focus. So make sure you notice what has been set for your group!

We also want you to stay fit and active whilst you're off school, so we would like you all to aim for at least 30 minutes as part of your school set activities.

From today Joe Wicks 'The Body Coach' is going to be doing a daily 30 minute session of PE for you all on his Youtube channel 

The Body Coach TV

It would be great if you could all join in - or failing that try to complete at least 3 5-a-Day routines, (the link to this, username and password info are on the previous 'Class Pages' page, so just scroll back to get there).

Further exercise activities will be set each day.
