Year 5 Home Learning – Week Commencing 4th May

Hi all,

We hope the rain has not dampened your spirits although now is a great time to take a look outside to see what is growing. We have set some more tasks for you to complete. We would love to see more of your work in the comments this week.

English

We hope you were proud of your setting descriptions and you managed to share them with others. We really enjoyed reading the ones that were posted. Hopefully, this week we will have more to read. We are moving on to character descriptions. The sessions will follow the same format as last week, starting with some reading activities, vocabulary and grammar work before you get chance to write your own character description.

Lesson 1 – https://www.thenational.academy/year-5/english/character-description-reading-comprehension-fact-retrieval-year-5-wk2-1

Lesson 2 – https://www.thenational.academy/year-5/english/character-description-reading-comprehension-word-meaning-year-5-wk2-2

Lesson 3 – https://www.thenational.academy/year-5/english/character-description-identifying-the-features-of-a-text-year-5-wk2-3

Lesson 4 – https://www.thenational.academy/year-5/english/character-description-spag-focus-relative-clause-year-5-wk2-4

Lesson 5 – https://www.thenational.academy/year-5/english/character-description-write-a-character-description-year-5-wk2-5

When you are learning the spellings, remember you can use a range of strategies that we have learnt in school. These include pyramid words, writing each letter in a different colour, drawing the shape of the word or write the word without the vowels.

Maths 

We will again be setting work via The Oak Academy. We are aware that there have been the odd error and we will endeavor to point these out in future weeks although The Oak Academy have updated some of these already. We think that the lessons are appropriately pitched and we would like you to carry on with them. Let us know what parts you are enjoying and anything we can help you with. This week the focus is on identifying and describing reflections before reflecting shapes on a axes.

TT Rockstatrs

Well done to the boys who won this week’s battle with over 9000 points. Bilal and Jake were the highest scorers for the boys. Nasia and Celia were the highest scorers for the girls. I wonder who will be victorious in this week’s battle between the classes?

SATs companion 

This week, your SATs companion will be set based on the Maths work you will complete with The Oak Academy. The work will be available from Friday after you have completed the lessons.

Art

This week, we would like you to use the following clip to learn how to draw a self portrait.

Science

We have assigned a book on the Scholastic website for Science this week. It is all about Albert Einstein, a famous scientist. We would like you to use the ‘Introduction’, ‘People you May Meet and the ‘Timeline’ on pages 4-11 to create a fact file all about him.

Reading

Make sure you are keeping up with your reading. There are lots of different books available via the Scholastic website. Lots of you have been reading about space. We would like you to recommend some of the good books you have read for others to enjoy.

    Hi hope everyone is well? We are catching up on the Oak National Academy lessons for year 5. Are we doing something wrong as we cant find where we do the worksheet activities during the lessons??? They ask you to press the “next” button on the bottom of the screen to complete the challenge but there isnt one?

      There should be a large green oval in the bottom right hand corner of the screen. There are 2: one says back and the other says next activity which should take you to the next activity. In addition, there are 5 green circles under the video clip. If you click on these, they will also take you to the activity. All activities are on the screen so there is no need to print anything off. You will need to record any answers on paper before replaying the video. I hope this helps!

      Great to see that you are trying to get on A. Did you manage to sort it?

    Hi, it’s Rosie again. Here is my English work.

    Deep inside what wizards call the forbidden forest sleeps a creature. Slowly, you walk around the beast as not to wake him. You wonder what the part eagle, part horse was doing unaccompanied by fellows. The Hippogriff stirred and you stumble back feeling that you may trip. Alas, you hit a nearby branch.

    Snap! The noise had caused the beasts green eyes to open you see the reflection of yourself in the glistening eyes of the Hippogriff. The wings of the creature that looked heavy, stretched open. You see a beak rise from the ground. The tail of the Hippogriff, hung on by what looked like a rope? No, it was not a rope it was feathers. As the beast slowly stands up a shiver runs down your spine and terror takes your breath away.

    Hi this is my work again
    Far away on another planet, where no one has ever set foot on, sat a grotesque swamp.
    Living inside was a treacherous creature called a dragon.

    The fierce dragon, which breathed fire, was enormous. Upon its crown sat bloodstained
    teeth, which created a horrible stench coming from its mouth. Above it’s scaly nose, lay a pair of fiery red eyes.

    Running down the creatures back, you can see scars from its previous battles. Below its scaly wings, small, muscular arms swayed in the wind. The immense dragon was far from adorable, it had leathery wings which were gigantic, to fly.Like a whip lashing in the wind, its extended tale swept alongside the stone path.
