Be happy together, Believe together, Achieve together


Friday 27th March


Firstly, please follow our Twitter! We’re keeping track of things with you guys on @Year5RiceLane. Today there will be a LIVE Parents vs Kids quiz at the end of the working day!

Maths – For maths today, I don’t know about you but I miss football. Follow this link so we can put maths and football together!

Start by watching Bobby Seagull’s video introduction, and then work your way through all of the activities. Start with the Year 5-6 challenge, but if you can’t do some of the activities (which is OK because you haven’t been taught them all yet), you can have a go at the Year 3-4 activity.

PARENTS – The answers may appear in the notes section so try and hide these if possible

KIDS – yes the answers may appear at the bottom, but life is boring if you just look at the answers without trying

Printing might help in this activity, but it really isn’t necessary so don’t worry if you can’t.


English – find a page in your favourite book, and make a nice colourful poster out of all the verbs that you find on that page. Make sure you spell them correctly when you put them on your poster, otherwise be creative and colourful and have fun!


Spelling – Ah yes, the dreaded spelling test. If you could make a list of the spellings you’ve been practising on Spelling Shed all week then parents, we need your help with this one. If you could take 10 minutes out of your day to read your spellings out to your children that would be great! After this, spend 30 minutes on Spelling Shed with your new spellings.


PE – Seeing as we haven’t had anybody email in their workouts (sad face), here’s one to get you started.

  1. Get a deck of standard playing cards and shuffle them, placing them face down afterwards. If you don’t have a deck of cards then follow this link:
  2. Make the different suits a different exercise (eg hearts = sprints, clubs = sit ups)
  3. Draw a card and do the number of exercises is says to do on the card! (jack =11, queen = 12, king = 13, ace = 14)
  4. Keep drawing cards until you are officially tired.


If you don’t want to do fitness you could base it around one sport (for example, hearts = penalties, clubs = passes) and so on. Be creative!


End of week quiz – well done, you’ve made it to Friday! Now Mr Kendrew is very much missing quiz club, so we’re going to change that. LIVE on Twitter at 3.30pm, Mr Kendrew will be hosting his very first Quarantine Quiz. It’s going to be ideal for Parents vs Kids, but if your parents are busy you can play on your own. It’ll be a mix of general knowledge and Year 5 knowledge and I’d love you to reply on Twitter with your scores so I can see how well you have done.

If you miss it LIVE, don’t worry because the video will automatically be available on Twitter.
