https://www.thenational.academy/year-5/english/setting-description-write-a-setting-description-year-5-wk1-5

Listen carefully to the input in the video. Today you will be writing your own setting description. Listen and pause the video to give yourself time to plan the sections of your description. Use the WAGOLL and the sentences you drafted in lesson 4 to help you. When you have finished, edit your writing carefully. Teachers would love you to ask parents send these to year group emails. Please do not upload any of your work online to any social media sites.

Remember that there are now lesson videos on our YouTube channel! Use this link: L3 Stressed and scared words. You can work on the sheet below or just write your answers in your exercise book.

Grammar home learning

To help you master some important key skills, we are putting lesson videos on our YouTube channel. The link to this week's lesson on fronted subordination is here: L3 Relative Clauses. You will just need some paper and a pen/pencil.

Maths home learning

We are now using some fantastic resources from the White Rose Maths Hub for our home learning. We have chosen these because they really closely match the way we teach maths at St Peter's.

  • Each lesson has a short video to watch with clear modelling and explanations.
  • We appreciate that printing can be a challenge, so you can just write the answers in your exercise book.
  • Questions with a thought bubble next to them are like our 'star challenges' so they may be more challenging.
  • The answers are included for you to check once you've completed the task or if you are getting stuck.

We will carry on posting a different challenge from Nrich each week and you can also go to https://nrich.maths.org/14600 if you want even more maths!

 

From the week beginning 4th May onwards, we are going to be working in line with the White Rose terms dates. This is because White Rose have linked up with BBC Bitesize so there will be more games and activities offered each day which match the main lesson.

To access the learning, you need to:

 

 

 

Times Tables Rockstars

TTRS can be accessed on any computer/laptop and via the free app on tablets and phones. If your child has problems logging in, please contact us via the year group email.

 

We would like all children in Years 3-6 to play on Garage for 3 minutes per day.

Other fantastic options are:

  • Festival (they play against ‘the world’)
  • Arena (playing against others in their class so this will only work if they organise to be online at the same time between themselves)
  • RockSlam (they directly challenge someone else within their year group – only using Rock Names)

 

Battle update

It was an incredibly close battle between Year 5 and Year 6 last week and Year 5 triumphed in the end by just over 7000 points. Congratulations! However, we wanted to give Year 6 a chance to seek revenge so we have set up the same battle for next week. We wonder if you've got the skills to make it two wins out of two!

The new battle starts at 8:30am on Monday 27th and finishes at 3:00pm on Friday 1st May.

Spellings home learning

Below is a document with this term's spelling rules. You could do a pre-test at the start of the week and then see how much progress you can make by Friday, just like we do at school. You will probably be able to come up with some really creative ways to practise at home. Perhaps you could compete against a sibling or an adult! Remember that all of the common exception words can also be found in the centre pages of your reading diary.

Reading home learning

We always encourage all children to read at home and we know many of you have many lovely books to read. In order for your child to continue being able to read book banded reading books selected at their level of reading ability, your child now has an account with Bug Club where they have been allocated reading books based on their book band. They have 2 books to read in ‘My Stuff’ and then after completing all of the activities based on the books, they will receive 2 more books. Books read and completed will then go into ‘My Library’ to read. Please use our pupil guide below to help you navigate Bug Club. We would expect your child to complete 2 books each week and there is a limited number of books within each book band to complete.

We recommend that the first reading will focus on decoding, the second reading will focus on comprehension and completing the activities and try some reading with prosody (intonation, pitch and expression) for a few pages too when you read aloud.

 

Please note that we advise only reading 1 or 2 books a week rather than racing ahead - quality reading rather than quantity will help you improve your reading more.

History home learning

 

Use the REACH booklet to learn all about Ancient Greece. Although it says this is for Year 3, this is a unit of work that the children haven’t done. Use this time to learn all about the fascinating time of great change! This is the history unit in full so we suggest you complete one question per week.

  2. What was the Golden Age in Greece?
  3. What did the Greeks believe?
  4. Who were the Ancient Greek philosophers?

Geography home learning

 

Use the REACH booklet to learn all about Rivers. Although it says this is for Year 4, this is a unit of work that the children haven’t done. Use this time to learn all about these natural creations.

1.       Where are the world’s rivers?

2.       How do rivers help shape the land?

3.       What landforms can rivers create?

4.       What landforms can rivers create?

5.       Why are rivers important to people?

Writing home learning

 

Your task is to write a letter to somebody to make them smile! Below is the document explaining our purpose for writing with some helpful tips and success criteria. 

 

You have two whole weeks for this task so make sure you take time to plan carefully and show your expertise. You have a chance to really make a difference to someone's day! If your parents would like to scan/ photograph the letter once it is finished to send to us (by the 1st May), they can send them to our year group email address: y5@sppschool.uk. We would love to read them and will be able to give some whole class feedback once they are finished.

Maths home learning

 

From Monday 20th April, we will be using some fantastic resources from the White Rose Maths Hub for our home learning. We have chosen these because they really closely match the way we teach maths at St Peter's.

  • Each lesson has a short video to watch with clear modelling and explanations.
  • We appreciate that printing can be a challenge, so you can just write the answers in your exercise book.
  • Questions with a thought bubble next to them are like our 'star challenges' so they may be more challenging.
  • The answers are included for you to check once you've completed the task or if you are getting stuck.

 

The link to the work for the week starting Monday 27th April is here: https://whiterosemaths.com/homelearning/year-5/.  We are working on 'Week 2' which is about rounding decimals, percentages and equivalence with FDP. (NOT Summer Term Week 2!). To help you with the lessons on rounding decimals, we have uploaded a PDF below which has stem sentences on. To help you with the lesson on ordering and comparing decimals, you may want to use https://mathsbot.com/tools/placeValue as well the place value counters https://mathsbot.com/manipulatives/placeValueCounters 

 

We will carry on posting a different challenge from Nrich each week and you can also go to https://nrich.maths.org/14600  if you want even more maths!

School Closures – Learning at Home

We have carefully selected learning at home for your child during this uncertain time. We greatly appreciate your continued support as we work together to provide learning at home.

Writing home learning 

To support your child with writing, we would like them to research a topic they are passionate about and produce a non-chronological report. Please note, this piece of writing will be the focus for two weeks of learning. A new piece of writing will be uploaded for week commencing 6th April.

 

Perhaps you would like to write about an animal, a sports team, space, a famous person, an environmental issue, inventions/inventors, an important historical figure, a historical era, a country, a monarch? We recommend you use SWIGGLE search engine if you use the internet to research for safeguarding like we use at school and be SMART when using the internet.

 

You can present your work in a variety of ways including PowerPoint, a leaflet, a booklet, a poster, a website page, an app or any other creative way you can think of.

 

Below are some examples to help you based on the work we have done this year.
