Well done to everyone who has played this week :-)

I'll update you again next Tue or Wed with the winners for the week.
TT Rockstars Battle with Quartz class. Quartz are currently winning, but not by many points and there's not many of them joining in.

Come on Year 5!!!! 
Happy half term and bank holiday Monday!!

Payton asked for a music lesson, so here is a link that has lots of activities that you could choose from if you fancy doing something a little different over half term, or want some more maths and English. There's also a link to some Music Express lessons, so you can have a little explore on there (you just need to sign in as a teacher using the details they provide).

Friday 22nd May

Read Chapter 27 of Holes, then write sentences with place fronted adverbials about the book. You can use yesterday's spellings, the attached fronted adverbial mat, or think of your own. E.g. Inside the hole, Stanley caught a glimpse of something gold and shiny, so bent down to take a closer look. Underneath the fresh sandy rubble, was a gold tube with the letters KB inside a love heart.

Thursday 21st May

English: Handwriting and spelling practise. Ask someone at home to test you when you have practised. Can you use some of them in sentences?

Monday 18th May - Friday 22nd May
Maths


This week we will be working on the lessons from Summer Term Week 2 (w/c 27th April). All the lessons are about adding and subtracting decimals. You will need to scroll down the page to the pink bar with this date and week on.

Go to the website and work though Lessons 1 - 5 each day.

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

Remember to watch the videos first and if anything says shade squares etc. just write the number in your book.

If any questions are a bit tricky then you can message me for help, or look at the answer sheet after having a good attempt. Don't worry if you need to leave the odd question out, but if you are finding it too difficult in general, then let me know and you could try the Year 4 work instead, especially if you usually do Mild in class.
Wednesday 20th May

Read Chapters 25 and 26 again and order the following events. You may find it easier to colour events from Chapter 25 one colour and 26 another and do it in 2 parts. Write the sentences neatly in your book in order.

Collect from The Sixth Sunday of Easter

God our redeemer,

you have delivered us from the power of darkness

and brought us into the kingdom of your Son:

grant, that as by his death he has recalled us to life,

so by his continual presence in us he may raise us to eternal joy;

through Jesus Christ your Son our Lord,

who is alive and reigns with you,

in the unity of the Holy Spirit,

one God, now and for ever.

Reflection opportunity:
What brings you joy? How can you share this with other people that they feel joy also?

Monday 18th May

English: Here is this week's First News for you to look at. Today I would like you to either choose an article to write your own RIC questions in your book, or have a go at one of the reading comprehension tasks. You can try some of the other activities later in the week if you have time.

Tuesday 19th May

English: Read Holes Chapter 25 and complete the task. There are a couple of RIC questions and then you can design a persuasive advert for one of Sam, the onion man's products. Send a picture of your adverts to laura.ward@hunsletstmarys.co.uk. I've had some great pictures of the lake drawing before and after task I set last week sent so far :-)

Message Board

Hope everyone is okay and managing to keep up with the tasks I've been setting each day. Here is a message board for you to let everyone know how you are getting on with your work and maybe let us know what other things you've been up to. Perhaps you have some good ideas for the rest of the class of fun things to do? You don't need to write your surname - just your first name will do.

  • 07-05-2020 - PYif you have zoom say hi
  • 06-05-2020 - Mrs WardThe expectation for your home learning is at the very least a piece of English and Maths each day (preferably the work I'm setting on here) to keep up with your education. You should all be able to do the work on here independently and if you are finding it too difficult, then ask an adult to email me or message me on here and I can give you some help or send home some easier work. Well done to everyone who is keeping up with the work. You should have enough spare time to do some other curriculum activities and have plenty of time to spend with your family, including helping your parents and doing some exercise each day. If anyone has fallen behind then let me know and I can help you with where to start as it will probably be easier to leave some things, but others - e.g. White Rose Maths stuff - needs to be done in order.

Read Chapter 23 of Holes.

Draw and label a picture of Green Lake 110 years ago and a picture of Green Lake today (you can look back at previous chapters to get extra details).
Art Project: Line Making

Read through the PowerPoint and have a go at the activities. All you need is a pencil and some paper to practise the different types of lines and then use them in a piece of art work. You can do this throughout the week and send me a picture of your completed work when it's finished to laura.ward@hunsletstmarys.co.uk

Tuesday 12th May

Last week's work gallery

Thank you Frankie, Grayson and Ellis for sending me lots of lovely pictures of your work. Here are a few:

Monday 11th May
English


Read Chapter 22 of Holes.

Edit the passage below (that has boring sentences) in your books to make it sound much more interesting to the reader. Can you add fronted adverbs, relative clauses, expanded noun phrases, coordinating and subordinating conjunctions?

The water truck arrived. Stanley drank his canteen. Mr Sir filled it. The truck pulled away. Stanley went back in his hole. Magnet asked if anyone wanted sunflower seeds. He had stolen them from Mr Sir. The boys ate them. Stanley didn't want to. Zig-Zag threw them to him. The bag split in his hole. Mr Sir came back and took Stanley to see the warden.   

These events are from Chapter 19.
If you started this last week then continue with some more sentences of your own up to Chapter 22. Think of a simple (boring) sentence in your head and then edit it to make it sound more interesting to the reader.

I would love to see your work. Ask an adult to send a picture to laura.ward@hunsletstmarys.co.uk. I will make a work gallery with examples of work sent to me this week.

A prayer and reflection for the week beginning 11th May:

The Collect, from the Fifth Sunday of Easter Service

O lord,

from whom all good things do come:

Grant to us your humble servants,

that by your holy inspiration we may think those that be good,

and by your merciful guiding may perform the same;

Through our Lord Jesus Christ.

Amen.

What ‘good’ things can you do this week to please God? To please your parents and family?

Today we will do Lesson 4 from  Week 2 of the White Rose home learning work on decimals. Scroll down to the bottom of the page to find week 2. The lesson is called percentages as fractions and decimals.
https://whiterosemaths.com/homelearning/year-5/

Go to the website to watch the short video first to introduce it and recap, then complete as much as you can of the following sheet.

If you usually do Mild work or find this hard, don't worry if some of the higher numbered questions are a little tricky. You can download the answers from the website to check, but only do this when you have had a really good go at them all yourself first. Or you can try the Year 4 Week 1 or 2 work instead.

Here is a link for the worksheet (Week 2: Lesson 4), when you have watched the video, just write the answers and any working out you need to do in your home-school book. If it asks you to shade squares/boxes, you can just write the number you would need to shade in your book as the answer.

* There won't be any work tomorrow as it's a special bank holiday, however, if you would like to do the final lesson (Lesson 5) of the week before Monday (or even just watch the video and do a few Qs), it may help you to consolidate your understanding of fractions, decimals and percentages. *
Thursday 7th May
English


Read Chapter 21 and make sure you are up to date with this week's English tasks. If you already are, then try to edit the passage below (that has boring sentences) in your books to make it sound much more interesting to the reader. Can you add fronted adverbs, relative clauses, expanded noun phrases, coordinating and subordinating conjunctions?

The water truck arrived. Stanley drank his canteen. Mr Sir filled it. The truck pulled away. Stanley went back in his hole. Magnet asked if anyone wanted sunflower seeds. He had stolen them from Mr Sir. The boys ate them. Stanley didn't want to. Zig-Zag threw them to him. The bag split in his hole. Mr Sir came back and took Stanley to see the warden.   

These events are from Chapter 19 - you can continue and add more events up to Chapter 21 if you would like to. 

I would love to see your work. Ask an adult to send a picture to laura.ward@hunsletstmarys.co.uk. I will make a work gallery with examples of work sent to me this week.
Wednesday 6th May

English (Spelling): Read Chapter 20 of Holes. In your books, practise your handwriting with these time adverbials. Then write some sentences using the words (preferably about Holes).

Science investigation (optional Easter activity)

Hi everyone! As the weather's looking good this week, I thought some of you may like to try this investigation if you have a bike or scooter etc. at home. You will be testing materials to see which creates the most friction and therefore makes a good break pad to stop a wheel from turning. All you need to do it is a piece of cardboard that will be the brake pad and then different materials to wrap around it to test. I would see if you can find a range of smooth and rough materials, e.g. tin foil, a sponge, paper, an old sock maybe, a bit of old towel, bubble wrap, sand paper. Don't worry if you don't have all these materials, you can use anything that will wrap around a piece of card. Only use old things or things that your parents allow you to cut up.You won't need big pieces, just to cover a square of card that is the width of the bike wheel. You will need to time how long the wheel takes to stop. You could use a timer or just count the number of seconds. Remember to make a prediction first. Have fun and let us know on the message board what your conclusion is. I have included a Power Point and some examples of tables etc. that you can either print or copy into your book.

Happy Easter Holidays

Hi everyone! If we were at school now we would be getting ready to go home for the Easter Holidays. Therefore, next week I won't be putting on Maths and English everyday, but feel free to catch up on anything that you haven't done already, especially if you haven't read up to Chapter 10 of Holes yet. The chapters are quite short and everyone on the message board has agreed that it has been great so far. There's also TT Rock stars and loads of other online educational games to play if you enjoy them.

I will post some links to optional fun things over the next 2 weeks in case you would like to do some extra activities at home. You can also share ideas of the fun things you've been up to on the message board, including links to useful websites, and I will try to approve your posts each day. I will need to get rid of some of the older posts each day to make space.
You can still send me pictures of things that you have been doing and I will add them to our galleries.

Enjoy a little down time with your family if you can and we shall resume our daily learning tasks on Monday 20th April.

Take care.

Today is a catch up day for any maths not finished from previous days.
If you have done everything, then go on Times Tables Rock Stars or NumBots for a bit and then work on the internet safety poster.
Internet Safety Poster

While you are learning at home, you will be using the internet to help you work. When you are having downtime, no doubt you will play games online and use phones, tablets etc. to keep in contact with your friends. Technology is really important to us right now, however, it is essential that you remember how to keep yourself safe online. 

This week's task is to design a poster to share on our website that reminds the rest of the class/school about how we can keep safe on line. Start by writing a list of things that are really important for children to remember e.g. only talking to your close friends and family online, never sharing your personal information, talking to an adult if something makes you feel unsafe etc. We had lots of great ideas in class recently.

Try to make your poster eye catching and include clearly all the information that children will need to remember how to stay safe. Then email a picture of your poster to me: laura.ward@hunsletstmarys.co.uk
