Welcome to Year 5’s page!
Here we will share pictures and information about some of the interesting things we have been doing in class.
We hope you enjoy looking at what we've been up to!
Miss Meeson, Miss Ormonde-Church,Mrs Spence and Miss Drury.
5DM have been learning about the phases of the moon. We used oreos to show the different phases. Unfortunately Miss M wouldn't let us eat all the biscuits, but it didn't stop us from trying.
5DM have been learning about the different types of animals and how to use a protractor this week. It's not as easy as it looks, but we had lots of fun doing this.
5DM have been learning about Earth and Space. We have learnt about the Solar System, the orbit of the planets around the Sun by becoming the Solar System outside. Children now confidently use the correct scientific vocabulary to describe what is happening. We also learnt about why we have day and night and some of use made models to show this. After that we explored the movement of the moon in relation to the Earth and made working models to show this.
5DM have been using the program Scratch to learn how to code and debug their own programs. They have made games and animated characters; making them interact with each other and objects. They have also learnt how to design and create their own sprites (characters) and backgrounds

Today you have a comprehension to complete about crabs. There is an information sheet, a set of questions and the answers too.
Today we are going to be looking at what synonyms are and exploring the synonyms for said, as these can really help us to improve our writing by explaining exactly how something was said. It helps us to learn more about the character, their feelings or mood and the situation that they are in. These are going to be very useful for our next piece of extended writing.
Today we are going to be carrying on with multiplication and looking at how to multiply two 2 digit numbers using the column method.
This week, we are starting our topic on Living Things as it is an easier topic to learn whilst you are at home. I have added a slideshow which has lots of instructions, information and links explaining what you need to do.
It is best looked at as a powerpoint so that you can click on the links straight from it, however, I have also saved it as a PDF file so that you can access it without powerpoint.
This week you are going to be learning about asexual and sexual reproduction in plants.
I have put the Science resource in a post for both classes.
Here is a link to get a free digital copy of the children's newspaper First News. It's a great resource that normally has to be paid for. It's an excellent way to encourage the children to read at home too.

I have added some information and activities that you might find useful. Every child who completes a project will win five raffle tickets to go towards the end of term prize raffle

I have uploaded the formal and informal sorting activity that we did on Monday. You don't have to do this, but it will help you with your letter if you can see it when you are writing (either on screen or printed out).
I have also uploaded a few examples of formal letters. We will discuss these during our small group, but they are there for you if you want to use them to help you.

- Maths Fluent in Five Thursday 19.11.20.docx
Here are your instructions for today.
Guided Reading - Today you have a fun maths vocabulary reading comprehension. It's very tricky, but you'll enjoy it. I have also attached an inference task so you can both or, if the maths one is too tricky, just do the inference task.
English - In English, you are going to do some work on determiners as it is an area that you weren't too sure on so it would be good for you to have a refresher about it.
Maths - Today you will be reading information from two way tables. I will help you with these during our whole class Zoom session in the morning (if I can get my computer screen to share). If the work looks too tricky, I have also added some easier work about different types of data handling so you could do those instead.
Don't forget to do Fluent in Five. Remember that some of you are not expected to do every question so please don't worry if some are too tricky at the moment.
History- You will be learning about Roman mosiacs. I have attached a zip file containing a powerpoint about mosaics and some sheets on which to create your own mosaics. I would love to see them so please send them to me.
PE - Today you have an ultimate fitness challenge. See how many minutes you can manage. Try it every day and see if you can beat your score. As always, make sure that you are wearing trainers and are in a nice safe space where you will not bump into anything.

From tomorrow, Wednesday 18.11.20 we will be having a Zoom meeting every morning at 9.30am.
In addition to this, I have assigned you all to a colour group and we will be doing separate small group teaching sessions. I will send an email to parents about your colour group with the details of what times I will expect to see you. These will start on Thursday 19.11.20 to allow me time to arrange a timetable and get it sent out to everyone.
Also, for our Science on Friday this week I would like you to see if you can collect some of the following solids for an experiment:
flour, sugar (brown is best but any will do), bicarbonate of soda, green tea (or normal tea), coffee, bath salts (other salt is fine if you don't have these.
You will also need a clear glass or clear plastic cup, some water, measuring cups (if possible) and a space to investigate.
Before Friday, I would like you to make a prediction about what will happen to each of the solids you have, if you put them in water. I would also like you to think about how we can make our test fair for each solid that we test. If our test isn't fair, then we can't compare our results.
Please don't do the test before we have spoken about it.
Guided Reading Today you have a vocabulary task. You have to correctly match the word and definition from our class novel and then complete the little task at the end of each one. Remember to use a dictionary if you are not too sure. There are dictionaries online if you don't have one at home.
English Today you will be using was and were correctly as this is something that many of us struggle with.
Remember that was is singular (just one), were is plural (more than one) e.g I was going to the shop (singular as it is just one person or group). We were going to the shop (plural) The girl's were going to the shop (plural).
Please do the was/were sorting activity first and then complete the sentences.
I do expect your handwriting and presentation to but just as neat at home as it is at school. Make sure that you write the long date and title and underline them both.
Maths You were sent home with your maths sheets for today, but if you have misplaced them I have put them on the website. I know that some of you are finding this tricky so you can ask for help from your parents. If you still need help then do not worry as I will help you with on Wednesday if you email me and let me know.
PE https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=T9XIGs_lu4g Here is a link for some fun physical activity challenges for you to do. WEAR SUITABLE FOOTWEAR to do these activities please.
Music https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=n52S7j3mKuo&feature=youtu.be Here is a link to a performance of Harry Styles 'Watermelon Sugar' song. It sounds very different and is played on an instrument that you may never have seen before. There are some fun activities for you to join in with. It's important for us to listen to music played live and to hear a range of different instruments. After each song, you will meet a new and exciting instrument that I know you will have never seen before.
Can you design your own percussion instrument? How would you make the sounds?

Well here we are again Year 5 but I know that you are all going to keep working super hard and these two weeks will fly by!
I am going to upload some work for tomorrow but I won't be able to answer any emails as I am on an all day webinar and then going straight into parent's consultation meetings.
I will be arranging Zoom sessions for different groups within the class as it is quite difficult to have you all on at the same time, although we will have a morning meeting for everyone where we will say our morning prayers together and do the register. We will then read more of our class novel Nevermoor, so make sure that you are there or you will miss out on the adventures of Morrigan Crow (and you don't want to do that!!!)
Make sure that you check on the website every morning to find out the times that you need to log onto Zoom. I will try to keep the times the same everyday. We will have a whole class Zoom session on Wednesday morning at 9.30am and the group sessions will start on Thursday.
Missing you all, already
Miss M x
ps Have you looked at all the photos further down the website of some of our learning so far?
Today we designed and made our own filters to see if we could separate the dirt from the water to try and making clean water. We were shown a list of materials that we could use and had to design our own filter. Miss Meeson only gave us a few clues, but we still managed to work it out for ourselves. We were astonished with how well our filters worked!! We learnt that filters like these are important in countries that don't have clean water.
Today we remembered all those people who lost their lives in the World Wars. We honoured their memories by creating some beautiful art work, which we have proudly displayed outside our classroom
Today we learnt about viscosity (how thick a liquid is). We had to design an investigation to test different liquids. Most of use decided to use a ramp and time how long it took the liquid to reach the bottom. After we did this, we had to evaluate our investigation and decide what we would change if we did the investigation again. We identified how if we didn't use a measuring spoon, that it wouldn't be a fair test as we put different amounts on each spoonful. We also thought that it might be interesting to test different brands of the same liquid.
Today we used maps and atlases to find out the location of many of the world's active and dormant volcanos. It was really tricky, but we persevered and were able to spot nearly all of them. Hawai was really tricky for us to find!!
Today we have been exploring the effects that adverbials and adjectives have on sentences. We found out that we can move the adverbials around to focus more emphasis on the them and about the role that adjectives can play in helping us to make inferences about a character.
Here is the Guided Reading on 'Sky Hawk' the focus text during today's English with Mrs McGrath via Zoom. Re-read the text and attempt all the questions after the Zoom Meeting - after lunch Mrs McGrath will upload the answers so you can have some reflection time and see how you did! Zoom Meeting with be at 10am with Mrs McGrath
Hello Year 5. I hope you all had a lovely weekend and are ready for your final week of home learning! 5EO you just have until Thursday as we are back together on Friday. I can't wait. 5DM you are back a week on Monday so you have a full week of home learning. We are uploading your work for the week rather than a daily upload due to the different days you are returning. Please don't get it all done in the first day it is to last all week. Your History and Geography projects from last week are to be finished this week. The maths challenges refer to the different year groups but they are all worth doing as they are all great opportunities for revision. We have also included the answers for the maths challenges to help you mark once you have finished. The Guided Reading has 3 different levels of questions 1 star up to 3 stars. 1 star are the easier questions and 3 stars are the harder questions. Pick whichever level you feel is appropriate. Don't forget your assignments on spelling shed and of course keep working on your times tables on TT Rockstars. If you go on youtube you can listen to chapter 7 and 8 of the Thieves of Ostia and you will see the lady we have heard from already. For the creative writing, there are lots of different challenges so pick one to do a day. As always our emails are open to hear from you. Take care and work hard. Miss Ormonde-Church and Miss Meeson.

Hello, As you may have seen the other Year 5 class have their own home learning on the website, make sure that you are completing the correct work. I hope day 2 of home learning has gone well. Please see the home learning for today. As always please send me an email if there is anything I can help with. Take care and stay safe.
Watch out for your Spelling Shed passwords. Your teacher will be sending them out to you by individual emails.
Hi everyone, So sorry that I didn't see you today and that we may be apart for a few days, but that doesn't stop us from learning. Guided Reading - Slavery in the Roman Empire (should last you all week). There are two versions of this. If you had the whole text to read then you need to do the separate text and questions sheets but if you had the text broken into bits with questions underneath then you should continue with that one. English - You will be learning about how to use semi colons OR using conjunctions (If you understand the conjunction sheet then you need to do the semi colon ones) Maths - Fluent in Five and Finding the half way point between a negative and positive number (we started this in class yesterday) Geography - Finding the location of dormant and active volcanos around the world. (see the plan for weblinks) I will be sending out your SPELLING SHED log ins on an individual email to your parents so please watch out for these. My email is email@example.com if you need any help or have any questions at all.

Hello, I hope you all found day 1 of home learning okay. I have attached some work for English, Guided Reading, Maths, PE and Geography. As always please send me an email to let me know if there is anything that I can help with. I also want to see what you are up to as well. Hope you're all working hard and staying safe.
Hello Year 5! I know this isn't how we would have liked to start a new week but it is all to make sure that we are keeping each other safe. It will be no time before we are back together in the class room.
In the meantime, I will be uploading our learning that we would have done in class onto here. I will be uploading English, Maths and Guided Reading everyday and then will be uploading a topic activity each day too.
All the work will be below this message.
If you or your parents have any queries during our time working from home please email me firstname.lastname@example.org.
I would love to hear and see what you have been up to while we haven't been together.
Take care, stay safe and see you all in 2 weeks.
I am uploading this document to reassure you as parents that all precautions are being taken to ensure that our trip is COVID secure.
Today in 5DM we have started to learn about the different layers of the Earth. This will help us to understand more about volcanos. To do this we all made our very own model Earths which included the Inner Core, Outer Core, Mantle and Crust from different colours of playdough. When we cut our Earths in half we could clearly see the different layers which we then labelled with little flags. Not only did we learn about the layers of the Earth, but we also learnt about perseverance as it was quite a tricky job to do.
Today 5DM have been researching the Romans using the internet and have also begun to learn how to make their own powerpoint. We will be working on this every Thursday afternoon for the next few weeks with our end result being some amazing powerpoints containing our non chronological reports about the Romans. Today we learnt how save images and to change the background on the powerpoint (including using pictures as a background) Watch this space as we will upload them onto the website so you can also find out about Roman life. All lap tops (screens, keyboards and covers)were cleaned before and after use to ensure children were COVID safe
5DM have been learning about the difference between similes and metaphors and we decided to take our learning outdoors. The children had to hunt and correctly sort the similes and metaphors into their table. We then went back to class and identified what the metaphors meant e.g. 'The teacher was a dragon' - The children thought this meant that the teacher was very angry and had no patience and roared at the children very much like a dragon would. 'The children were flowers growing up in a concrete jungle' - The children decided that this meant that the children grew, blossomed and brought life and beauty to the world and that the concrete jungle was their homes and cities.
This week Year 5DM have been studying the picture book FLOTSAM. It is a story about a young boy who finds an old box camera washed up in the sea. He gets the film developed and is astounded to see the photos and the unbelievable sights that can be seen below the sea.rnrnWe started off by exploring lots of FLOTSAM and trying to predict who it belonged to, what era they were from, what their job might be and what type of person they might be.rnWe then looked at photographs and back stories of the people and tried to match them together.rnrnWe also got to explore two box cameras. We were able to look right inside and see where the camera film would have gone and we learnt how camera film was developed. It amazed many of us!rnrnWe have more to explore with our book and are excited to find out what happens next!
Here we are at the start of a new school year. It's been a strange time but we can't wait to see you all and to start our exciting Year 5 journey. We'll have lots of fun with our learning along the way.
There will be a Zoom welcome meeting on 9th September at 4pm so please check your texts for the passcode and link.
Miss M (5DM) and Miss O-C (5EO) x
You are all absolute treasures and I know that you are going to do brilliantly in Year 6.
Have a great Summer, have fun and come back all refreshed in September.
Thanks for a great year!
I would also like to bid a fond farewell to Mrs Beaumont, who is leaving St Philip's to take up a new exciting role in a different school. I am very sad to see her leave and I'm sure that you will alll wish her well on her new journey.
Miss M x

Hi Everyone, It's Mrs Beaumont here sneaking onto your class page... Sports day is one of my favourite days of the year. I didn't want us to miss out this year so on Tuesday 6th July our school is taking part in a virtual sports day against other schools.

You do not have to do all of the activities and can pick and choose which ones you would like to do. The more points you submit for our school the bigger our chance of winning. There are awards of sports equipment goody bags for Team work, Determination and Passion. BUT REMEMBER- The most important thing is to have LOTS OF FUN! Just like we always do at our St Philip's Sports Days! For more details and all the activities see the attached document.

Writing Task 22.06.20
Whatever you wants to write about is welcome. It could be a letter, poem, song, postcard or story. The letter could be written to the Earth or from the Earth, to future or past generations, to adults who have the power to make important decisions, to ordinary people or to other species (animals or plants). It could be written as a human or perhaps from the point of view of a bee, bird, beech tree or another species.
Please,please send these to me so I can read them.
Cinnamon has been using our current situation to write two beautiful poems. One is called Lock Down and one is called Rainy Day. I wonder if anyone else could write some poems too! Great work Cinnamon! Your poems are fab!!
Alex has been busy carrying out a superb investigation making salt crystals! Observations over time is one of our Working Scientifically targets and Alex has done this brilliantly! Fantastic work Alex!!!!
Well done to all who attended the live chat today. You asked some superb questions and I hope that you have been inspired by the scientists that you spoke to. Your manners were wonderful and I am so proud of you all.
French at home! Bonjour! Here are four resources that you can use at home to keep learning French! :) Don't hesitate to get your parents or siblings involved! The first resource is a link to a home learning website that a teacher has started since the lock down. She has done some videos where she teaches key vocabularies and simple conversations in French. 🙂 https://nattalingo.co.uk/category/online-learning/ The second resource is a mix of different French recipes, and I can confirm that they are typically French as it is the sort of food that Miss Valet's mum makes! 😄 https://m.box.com/shared_item/https%3A%2F%2Fapp.box.com%2Fs%2Fdymvf4uwekqkcbtms6lggzpfsf50mggk The third resource is the online reading of a very special book in France called 'The Little Prince'. Michael Morpurgo will be reading extracts from the book on social media! It is an absolutely wonderful story that has had an impact on many children in France (including Miss Varlet!). https://www.institut-francais.org.uk/events-calendar/whats-on/talks/the-little-prince/ The last resource is a lovely French treasure hunt that you can go and do in a park, as it is based around Spring. It's very short and simple, and although it is all in French, it is only simple words with pictures that you can always use internet to translate if you need to! 🙂 I hope these resources will be helpful! 🙂 Have fun!

Sonia Delaunay, Robert Delaunay and Beatriz Milhazes. Why don't you have a go and send me photos of your work.
We should have been studying Irreversible changes as our class topic next half term so I have attached an Escape Room game (which you might need to do a bit of research for). I have also attached a PDF and powerpoint with some information on and some simple investigations that you could do at home. I have also included some delicious recipes that you might want to try. Cooking is a great way of finding out about irreversible changes. There is a lovely cheesecake recipe and you know how much I LOVE cheescake!!! As always, I would love to see any photos or short (no longer than 30 seconds) videos about what you have been doing.

Hi everyone, Mrs Beaumont has sent this to see if any of you would like to take part in this competition. Alistair Brownlee (A team GB triathlete) is having to train in his endless pool in his garage but his garage walls are dull and uninspiring. He wants YOU to design a picture that can be used to decorate his walls. You could even use your perspective drawings to send him. There are more details on the attached flyer. You need to send your design to the email on the flyer but can you also send them to me too please and I will post them all on the website. The competition closes on 20th May.
Well done to everyone who joined in with the live chat today. Your questions were outstanding and you were so polite to the scientists. I am extrememly proud of you all.

Hi everyone, I have signed us up for another live chat. If you registered for the chat last week then you should be able to use the same log in for this one too.
If you did not create a new login then you MUST create a new one via the link below.
The logins in your journal are out of date and WILL NOT work.
Please make sure that you read up on the scientists and think of some questions that you might like to ask. We will be in the PHYSICS ZONE again.
Coronavirus may have stopped our residential at This Green Moon, but in Year 5 we are having our own Lockdown residential. Keep checking back for more photos. I have attached some photos with example tents that Eve's Mum kindly sent to me. Please scroll down the class page for the suggested activities.
Science Lesson 1 Teeth https://stemlearning.wistia.com/medias/azo5k2vpau Science Lesson 2 Digestion - https://stemlearning.wistia.com/medias/rv4hylm2u6 Copy and paste the link above into your search bar to find an online lesson about digestion. You can then do the accompanying activities from the worksheets that I have attached.
In this weeks Science fun you can explore a density jar (which I love to do). One of the extra challenges is making water bend. I remember when I first learnt how to do this many years ago! It is amazing!!
As our residential has sadly had to be cancelled because of the virus, I thought it might be fun if we tried to recreate it in our own homes. On the residential, we would have been sleeping in teepees, making our own pizzas, having a talent show and collecting eggs in the morning to make breakfast.
Here are my ideas:
1) Make your own tent somewhere in your house or in your garden and have midnight (or anytime in the day) snacks in there. If you have Facetime then you could Facetime your friends and have your snacks together.
2) Show me your talents. Send me photos or short videos of your talent. That can be anything at all, jokes, art, singing, dancing, sport, reciting a poem, playing an intsrument etc.
3) Ask your family to hide some eggs in your garden or around the house and you have to hunt for them and then learn how to make an eggy breakfast. If you don't like eggs, hide your porridge or cereal.
4) Make tea for your family, you can make pizzas in lots of different ways or challenge yourself to learn how to make something else (ask your parents for help).
Please send me any videos and photos of your activities and I will make a slideshow of them for you to keep, as a memory of our YR5 residential. Please keep videos to around 30 secs or less if possible.

This week, Grace has been busy doing some Art work, including a perspective drawing just like the ones we did at the beginning of the year. Macy has been making a lava lamp from her book '101 coolest Science experiments' It looks great Macy!!! Chrissie has produced some fantastic RE work about Islam and has also been investigating the Science of how bees pollinate flowers! Eve has been working on her persuasive writing and trying to argue why we should or shouldn't have a school uniform. I have set her the challenge to try and persuade me that teachers should wear one. Jack has really enjoyed reading the book we sent home 'The Explorer' and has been enjoying working through the tasks about it. Kian has been looking at the history of Middleton Railway to create his poster and has even been riding there for his daily exercise! Miyangi has been researching Charles Dickens and found out some wonderful facts about him.
Please can you send me a photo of your child holding a message for the class as soon as possible. I am trying to make a nice slideshow that includes all the children in the class.
Thank you to everyone who sent me their photos quickly after receiving my email.

Have a look at this silly song and see if you and your family can learn the different parts and sing it together.
I would love to see any videos of this. You could also do this via Facetime etc and sing it with your friends.
Congratulations to Macy who has moved up a status for the second week in a row and is now a Garage Rocker and to Szymon who has become a Rock Legend!
Well done to you both. Your certificates are on the way!
Who will be our certificate winners next week? Come on Year 5!
I have attached these activities as they cover more areas than Fluent in Five. Don't worry if you can't do some of them as we hadn't managed to cover all the areas before school stopped. There are 30 activities to do(All activities have answers attached). Please do not try to do them all at once. Spread them out.
Here are some activities linked to the novel that you took home called 'The Explorer' There are lots of activities and it is best if you do them in the correct order.
Here is a grammar workbook to keep your learning up to date. It has all the answers included on separate pages (so no cheating). It is something that you can do a little bit of when you have some time.
The next activity in our Science at home activties.
I want you to now have a go at a new topic about converting decimals, percentage and fractions. I have attached worksheets to support your learning, a teaching slide to show you how to do it and some videos that will help you as well. Please do not worry if you struggle with this I will help you if you are stuck either by email or when we get back to school. There are two types of worksheets (ones that say W01, WO2 etc and ones that say Year 5 on them). Try to use the sheets from both resources. Answers are included. The files that say ANS are the answers for the sheets that say WO.

Hi everyone. Please send me photos about any of your work that you do about VE day. Arthur has made a plane and medal today and is very proud of it!! Alex has made a poster about WW2 and how it affected the people of Leeds. Szymon has produced a lovely piece of work about VE day with a super illustration of a spitfire. Gabriel has made a reenactment of a WW2 battle using his lego, written some great information and made a VE day flag. Bradley has made a superb banner to decorate his house for VE day. Grace has written super diary about a war child and worked out how to use morse code
Hi everyone, I have signed us up for another live chat. If you registered for the chat this week then you should be able to use the same log in for this one too.

The logins in your journal are out of date and WILL NOT work.
Please make sure that you read up on the scientists and think of some questions that you might like to ask. We will be in the PHYSICS ZONE again.
Ash has been developing his IT skills and has used these to produce two lovely pieces of work. A project on Albert Einstein and a piece of Creative writing. Maya has great a great document about how to keep healthy.
We had great fun chatting to real scientist in the Physics zone of I'm a Scientist Stay at home today. I took some photos of the chat (but not all saved because I run out of storage on my phone!!!)
Well done to everyone who came online for the live chat today. The questions that you asked were fantastic and I really hope that you enjoyed it.
I will try to book another chat and let you know when it is on here.
If you had anymore questions (or were unable to access the chat) then you can ask them via this link.
Vote for your favourite scientist of the week via this link
To access the live chat, go to the speech bubble that says chat and when the chat opens, you will be allowed in.
We are in the physics zone and have six scientists ready to answer your questions.

Here is a resource pack with some fun activities you could do this week. There are a few recipes that you could try, songs to learn and also instructions on how to Lindy Hop.
VE day was the day towards the ends of World War 2 when fighting against Germany stopped in Europe.
Here are a few activties that you could do.
Art and Design - pattern and colour work using the colours of the Union Jack to create bunting for a street party. It would be lovely to see photos of your bunting if you do this. (Copy the link below for some downloadable bunting. )
- line and shading work to draw the local memorial (use a photograph if you can't visit) and try and capture the shadow and light.
Music - compare the music of the time to modern music and identify similarities and differences between them.
- learn to sing one of the songs and think about the meaning and the tone it should be sung with.
PSHE - watch the video of VE day in London and consider or list why people were celebrating and why it's important that we remember it today. You will hear Winston Churchill the British Prime Minister addressing the nation. https://youtu.be/NEavcsrMoMw
Design Technology - Plan what you would serve for a street party to mark the end the war in Europe. To add additional challenge, learn about rationing and limit the food available to be used during the party.
Useful Resource Links:
Have a look at the conveyor belt that Szymon has made from one of our STEM challenges! It really works!!! Outstanding work Szymon! (The video is taking a long time to upload!!)
Here are some fun activities to do to help you to learn about superbugs and our battle against them. Copy and paste this link to get the slide show that accompanies the activities. https://elearning.pfizer.co.uk/superbugs/ks2/ I have also attached the KS1 resources in case you have younger children who would like to learn about this too. https://elearning.pfizer.co.uk/superbugs/ks1/
Kian and Chanice for becoming Rock Legends
Macy for becoming a Wannabe.
Great work guys, your certificates are coming via email
A massive well done to Gabriel for producing this outstanding book about David Attenborough! I am so impressed with you Gabriel.
Hi everyone, if you follow the link below (or copy and paste into your browser) you will find some videos that I would like you to use as prompts for your writing. I would like you to use your powers of persuasion to put forward your own opinion on each topic. You can present this as a persuasive letter, video report or maybe even have a family debate with your siblings or parents.
Why not try Facetiming your friends and discussing your idea like we do in class. You often work together in class and that is still okay to do now (if your parents are happy for you to do this). You could even include other people's opinions in your report.
Well done to Eve for sending me a fantastic powerpoint about Leeds during the War. I learnt some facts that I didn't even know! Great work Eve!
Learn about gases using these fun activities.
I have attached the Fluent in Five for Week 5. If you start to get stuck on any please email me as I have started to make them more tricky. There is one question on there this week that you might need to research a little bit before you can answer it.
STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics) plays a large part in our everyday lives and when these four subjects work together, amazing things are created. Have a go at these fun challenges. PLEASE send photos of any that you do. I would love to be exploring these in class with you!

It's so good to see you.
Find out about the scientist Jamie Garcia and her work towards making plastics more reusable. I have attached a powerpoint, information sheet and a quiz about her. It would be great if you could find out more about recycled plastics and send it to me. Make sure it's fun, a newspaper report on Jamie Garcia, or you could even do your own Newsround clip telling us about her. Posters, paintings etc would be great to see too. I would love photos of you making things by recycling plastics. How about a fashion show with clothes made out of recyclable materials. I can't wait to see what you come up with.
With the appearance of Nightingale Hospitals all around the country, I thought it was important for you to know little bit about the lady behind the name.
Hi my lovelies, I am missing you all so much and I would love to see your smiley faces. I'm sure that you are all missing each other too so I thought it would be lovely if you could send in a photo of yourself (you could even be holding a message for your friends) and I will display them all on here for you to see.
Miss you all so much
Miss M x
Here is a fun activity for all the family. If you want to extend yourself further then you need to be doing the extension activities. I wonder if you could make a density jar and send me some photos to put on the website?
I have attached a list of a variety of scientists who are linked with the Year 5 Science topics. What I would like to you do is to research one or more of these scientists and present your findings in a fun way (powerpoint, tv show, poster, book, art work etc).

Try to present your work in a fun way. Could you do a video report for me, a poster, newspaper, powerpoint or time travelling story. I would like you to put some effort into this so please don't send me something that you have rushed. Take your time and produce a piece of work that you are very proud of.
Here is the link to the website
Seeing as we are very limited as to where we can go at the moment, I thought I would attach this great resource that I found. You can go on virtual tours all over the world by just clicking on a link. I have been for a look around the Great Wall of China, to the acropolis in Greece and watched a Beluga Whale in Chicago zoo who was playing with a buoy. It's great fun! See if you can find the dolphin called Winter. Winter was trapped and lost her tail in an accident but luckily for her she was rescued and now has a false tale. Winter's story inspired the wonderful and inspiring film 'A Dolphin's Tale' I wonder where in the world you might go.
Here are a few activities to remind you about how to keep yourself safe when you are online. There are links to videos and activities to complete after them.
Here is your Fluent in Five for Week 3. I have now added subtracting fractions onto them. There is a link to a You Tube video to support you with this. It easier than you think.
Here I have attached the White Rose Maths Problems for each day of March. These are great to do and can be quite challenging so give yourselves a push. The KS1 questions are attached too so I have also attached the answers in case you have younger brothers or sisters. Children in Year 5 should be doing the blue set of questions.

I have attached some Holy Week reflections that you could do as a family. They have lovely artwork to accompany the reflections and also have simple ideas that you could do each day. Holy Week starts this coming Sunday 5th April so please do the reflections from next Monday 6th April
Why not have a go and send the photos in to me!
SCIENCE - Have a look at the You Tube Channel drbinocs. It has lots of fun episodes (Thanks Alex for suggesting this)
You could also look at Bill Nye the Science Guy who has lots of videos about a variety of Scientific topics.
I have attached a variety of maths challenges for all Year groups so have a go at them and see which ones you can complete. You could even time yourself or work with a friend over Facetime to complete them as a team.
I have attached a variety of reading comprehensions. Stage 6 is the hardest and Stage 1 is the easiest. Have a look at them an choose which is most suitable for you. Some are suitable for younger children so I have attached them in case you have younger brothers or sisters who would like to do them. Each level has several comprehensions (with answers) so you have to scroll down to find the next one. If you have run out of ink then please write the answers into the exercise book that I sent home with you.
Have a look at the clip about Austin's butterfly. You will see how practise, practise, practise helps to develop your drawing skills. Draw the same picture several times and try to improve it each time you do. Keep every drawing that you do and then send your first and most recent one to me after a few days (or weeks). I would love to see the progress that you have made.
STEM (Science, technology, engineering and maths) is a fantastic way to find out about the world around us right now and in the future. Have a go at these fun activities and see how many you can do. I would love to see photos of you completing them! https://www.science-sparks.com/ Look at this website for lots of fun interactive Science activities for you I have also added on a Science Sparks activity sheet. The activity is fun and there are extension activities on the bottom that are more suitable for Year 5s
I have added the Fluent in Five tasks for this week. Remember to do them daily (not all at once). DO NOT use a calculator to solve the problems. These are things that you have learnt in class, except for subtracting fractions. Anything that you are stuck with then look at the You Tube Links on the attached document. Don't forget that I am only an email away so I can help you.
Here are a few activities for your RE learning.
We have been learning how to use four figure and six figure grid references in Geography. I have attached a powerpoint explaining how to do this and some activity sheets. Why not make your own map of your house, street or imaginary world and mark on places for your parents to find.
Here is a challenge for you all. I have attached a some Book Bingo sheets. Why don't you try and challenge yourself to see how many you can do.
Hi everyone, I hope you are all doing well, keeping safe and WASHING YOUR HANDS a lot! I will be posting some things for you to do on this website to try and keep you all going over the next few weeks. The creative writing pack that I sent home should last you for quite a while. You can do the activities in any order and don't forget to try and use different styles of writing such as information texts, stories, persuasive writing, diary entries, newspaper reports, plays, magazines. I would love to see these so please send them to me via my email address. Don't forget to edit your work before you send it to me though, I don't want to be nagging you over email about punctuation, capital letters, handwriting and paragraphs. I still expect you to produce neat work and to put a lot of effort into it. Write a date and title as normal and underline these. Don't forget to use ISPACED to vary your sentence starters and to include a range of clauses in your work. Many of you had the target to ensure that you used conjunctions to link some paragraphs together. Please make sure that you do this. I will soon be setting tasks based on your book The Explorer so watch out for these. Don't forget that the book MUST be returned to school so look after it please. I am going to try and find a way to read to you every day as we never finished Gabriel's clock and I have other books to read to you.
Here are the answers for the Home Learning Packs that I sent home. You may have to scroll through the whole document to find the answers as I can't split it up.
I have attached the Year 3/4 grid and the Year 5/6 grid of words that your child needs to learn to spell. Please feel free to give them a test on these and then work on the words that they don't know. I have attached some crosswords that link to the grids for your children to do. Children also need to learn how to spell a wide variety of homophones (words that sound the same but are spelt differently). They need to be able to use the correct spelling within a sentence e.g. Which witch is the most wicked. I ate a pair of pears for lunch. They're at the park with their mum. They are sitting over there.
- Year 5 and 6 spelling list.pdf
- Year 3 and 4 spelling list.pdf
I have attached the Fluent in Five questions for this week. You all know how to do this. Do it in the back of the exercise book that I gave you and make sure that you write Fluent in Five and the date that you do it (underlined). Please only do one set per day. There are five days worth so it's just like you would do in class. Parents - This is a word document. Each day has new questions and the answers are on the following page so you just have to scroll down to find them. I have attached links for You Tube videos as some children struggle with certain calculations and may need your help so the videos are really useful to show them. If you are unsure about any of the questions then please email me and I will help you with that.
Today, groups of children in Year 5 were given a piece of a mystery jigsaw puzzle. They worked in their groups, using inference and prediction to find out as much as possible from the limited information they had. After that, we put the puzzle together to show a very strange character. Children then looked closely at the image to find out as much as possible about them and they used the find details in the image to make inferences and predictions about him and what his story might be. I wonder if you can think of a story for him?
Today we have been testing the theories of two scientists. Aristotle, who lived 2500 years ago in Greece and Galileo who lived approximately 400 years ago in Italy. Aristotle believed that the heavier things were, the faster they would fall. Galileo believed that the mass made no difference to how fast things fall. We carried out three experiments to test these theories. 1- Does the weight of a film cannister affect how fast it falls? 2- If we fold a piece of paper, what happens to the speed of the descent. 3 - If we drop a cup cake case, then increase the numbers of cases that we drop, will the speed of descent be affected. From our results we had to make a decision about whose theory was correct and we decided that our evidence supported Galileo's theory.
