Week beginning 18th January 2021

Home Learning Monday 18th January 2021

 

Hello Year 5,

 

I hope you all had a lovely weekend and found plenty to do to keep you occupied. I am really looking forward to seeing your faces on Zoom this morning. Below are your new tasks to complete. Enjoy!

Stay safe,

Miss Stephens

 

Reading

 

Make sure that you are reading your book of choice for at least 30 minutes. Evaluate what you are reading as you go a long. Do you think the author is making good vocabulary choices? Can you recognise any language features such as similes or metaphors? Did you enjoy what you read? Why/Why not?

 

Remember to complete those Lexia minutes – last week 9 of you reached your target, I think we can do better than that! I have given Dojos to those 9 children – good job!

 

I will also be setting you a comprehension task to complete on purple mash. Make sure you read the chapter carefully before attempting to answer the questions.

 

English

 

Today we are going to be starting a new sentence stacking unit. We are going to be focusing on the traditional tale ‘The Three Little Pigs’ but writing an alternative version thinking about the wolf’s point of view. I’m sure most of you are familiar with this story however, if you are not or would like to refresh your memory please use the following link to read the fairy tale.

 

The Three Little Pigs Story – Read Online – The Three Little Pigs Story

 

Today there are 2 things that I would like you to do.

 

  1. Imagine that you are an interviewer and you are going to be interviewing the wolf from the story. I would like you to write down the questions that you would like to ask the wolf. Make sure the questions that you ask are open questions because you are trying to find out as much information as possible. You do no want questions where the wolf can give a simple one word response.
  2. Choose your 3 favourite questions and answer these as if you are the wolf. Make sure you give detailed responses thinking very carefully about what the wolf may have been thinking or feeling.

Make sure you keep this work in your home learning notebook as we will be referring back to it when we complete the rest of our sentence stacking lessons.

 

Please remember to share your fantastic questions and answers to the blog so that I can give you some feedback.

 

Handwriting

 

Log in to Letter - Join (https://www.letterjoin.co.uk/log-in.html) You all should have received an email about this containing the log in details that you need. Select Year 5, select harder words from the tabs on the left hand side of the screen and then you should see a word list. Click on your word of choice and then press play to watch the animation. Please write this word at least 5 times exactly as you see it on your screen. Please practice 3 words a day. Why not try and write 3 sentences including your words of choice - in your neatest handwriting of course!

 

Spelling/Vocabulary

 

The 3 Mrs. Wordsmith words that you will be focusing on this week are:

Diverse

Conceited

Bicker

Make sure that you find out the meaning for these words and use them accurately in a sentence. Please share your sentences to the class blog so that I can check you have used the words appropriately. You also need to use your spelling techniques to learn and remember how to spell these words accurately, ready for your quiz on Friday.

 

Fluency

 

Use Numbots and TTRockstars - the links are on the home learning page if you need them. Your log in details will be the same for both apps. If you have forgotten your log in details please ask me and I will look this up for you. 

 

I will also be setting you some fun maths games on Purple Mash for you to complete.

If you would like to do a little more you can use your CGP Mental Maths workout book that was sent home. Remember to write your answers into your red notebook, not in to the CGP book itself.

 

 

Maths

 

Today you will be learning about how to read angles on a protractor.

Reading angles on a protractor (Part 1) (thenational.academy)

Work through the lesson by watching the video and then completing the independent questions. Don't forget to do the quiz and let me know your score by adding it to the blog. If anything is unclear or you get stuck please don't hesitate to ask me on the blog and I will respond as quickly as I can.

 

Again, if you would like to do a little extra you can use your CGP Maths workout book completing any work into your red notebook.

 

History

 

On Friday I asked you to draw a Viking Longship, today I would lie you to find out a little more information by answering the following questions.

 

  1. What is a Viking longship?
  2. How did the Vikings build longships?
  3. What were the longships used for?
  4. How fasts could Viking longships go?
  5. What animals was traditionally used as part of the longship design?
  6. Find 5 interesting facts about longships.

 

You can use the following video to help you find some of the information you need.

Reading

Remember to complete those Lexia minutes – last week 9 of you reached your target, I think we can do better than that! I have given Dojos to those 9 children – good job!

 

I will also be setting you a comprehension task to complete on purple mash. Make sure you read the chapter carefully before attempting to answer the questions.

I am expecting high quality work with accurate spelling and punctuation. You must remember to re-read your work and ensure that it makes sense. If you would rather write your information by hand this is absolutely fine and you can take a picture of your completed work to send to me on either the year 5 blog or year 5 email.

Hello Year 5,

 

I was really, really impressed with how hard you worked yesterday. I had lots more people handing in all of their 2Dos and sharing their sentence stacking which was lovely to see. The standard is also improving which is excellent and you should be proud of yourselves for being so hardworking and resilient. Make sure you bring your completed work with you today at the Zoom call so that we can all share what we have been doing. The harder you work the more dojos I can give out 😊

 

Keep it up,

Miss Stephens

Remember to complete those Lexia minutes – I will be handing out dojos.
