Monday 13th July

Good morning Year 5!

 

This is your last week of home learning, let's make it a good one! 

For this week, we will be moving back to BBC bitesize. 

 

Spelling

Join us at 11:05 am for our Hive Game. The code is 774567. Today's game is adding ally to words ending in ic.

 

English

 

https://www.bbc.co.uk/bitesize/articles/zdd9vwx

 

Today in English we are recapping nouns and using our skimming and scanning skills to find them within the text. 

 

Please get yourself logged on to Get Epic and complete 15 minutes of reading. 

Did you know Audible is also free during this time and there are so many benefits to listening to books too! Ask your parents to help set up an account. 

 

Maths

 

Today in math we are converting metric measurements. 

For this we need to use our multiplying and dividing by 10/100/1000 skills. Remember to do this WE DO NOT USE THE BUS STOP METHOD! We shuffle our digits over to the right to divide and the left to multiply.

Challenge!

Why don't you weigh or measure some items around the house and convert them in to different metric units

You could even find out the average weight of household animals or wild animals and convert them in to g! This could go towards your project!

 

Science

 

https://www.bbc.co.uk/bitesize/articles/zmw3hcw

 

Today, we are recapping a lesson we covered all the way back at the beginning of year 5. We are looking at the orbit of the Sun/Earth/Moon and how the interact with eachother

Don't forget your animal project is due in this Wednesday. Entries after this deadline will not be entered in to the school competition. 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Monday 6th July

 

Oak Academy Advice

  1. Once you’ve done the quiz, you need close the tab that it has automatically opened, and then close the quiz. After this, you can click ‘Next Activity’ and that will move you onto the video.
  2. The video will sometimes get to a point where you need to pause it and go to complete the work. The video will instruct you to do this if needed, then you need to close the video and click ‘Next Activity’ for the work.
  3. All of the sections will be much easier to follow if you click the ‘Full Screen’ button (it appears along the bottom of the section).

 

Spelling

Hive game will be at a new time of 11am. Code is 814474 and the focus is on Year 5 challenge words.

https://classroom.thenational.academy/lessons/to-describe-the-properties-of-diagonals-of-quadrilaterals

 

Geography: This lesson is the second lesson on ‘How do we produce energy?’. You should have completed the 1st lesson last Thursday. Make sure that you look back at that lesson so that you understand the terms ‘renewable and non-renewable energy’ as well as ‘fossil fuels’. If you did do lesson 1 last week, just go straight to lesson 2!

Lesson 1: https://classroom.thenational.academy/lessons/how-do-we-produce-energy-1

Lesson 2: https://classroom.thenational.academy/lessons/how-do-we-produce-energy2

 

There is a PSHE lesson about George Floyd on the Oak National Academy website. We are not setting this for you as we are going to tackle the incredibly important theme of ‘Black Lives Matter’ as a school, when we are back in properly. We feel that this is important to do it face to face, with an opportunity for discussion. In the meantime, there are some very helpful videos on Newsround.

 

Monday 22nd June

We will be changing our hive games to just a Monday, Wednesday and Friday. We will have Times Tables Rockstars battles going on Tuesdays and Thursdays.

Good morning, Year 5! Here are today’s home learning tasks.

 

Spelling

Join us for our usual 10am hive game. The code is 940177. We are recapping words with the suffix ‘dis’ which means the opposite of the root word. For example, obey would become disobey.

 

Something a little different – Biodiversity Week 2020

To celebrate Biodiversity Week, Mr Kendrew has made a video for you to have a look at. It will help you understand it all a little bit more and will obviously be fun and interactive.

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=IaIQ76n0KYY

 

English

Today we are going back over similes and metaphors like we did a few weeks ago but you should be able to create some more uplevelled and expanded stuff now because you know what you’re doing. Watch the videos for a little re-cap and have a go at the activities.

https://www.bbc.co.uk/bitesize/articles/z4nybdm

 

Maths

Today and maths you are adding and subtracting fractions where the answer is less than a whole. We have already covered it this year in class so I know you will all be amazing at this. Just remember if the denominators are different you need to make them the same first. Remember – Whatever you do to the bottom, you’ve got to do to the top!

https://www.bbc.co.uk/bitesize/articles/z42vgwx

 

History

Today you are looking at Henry VIII – he was a very interesting character indeed! Some of the changes he made – arguably to suit himself - totally changed history and even changed how we do things today.

 

https://www.bbc.co.uk/bitesize/articles/zdj8wty

 

Watch the videos and complete the quizzes. It gives you a comprehension to do at the end but if you don’t fancy this, we would love to see some creative ways to show your new knowledge. Maybe a poem, news report, poster, song, role play (get your family involved)… So many options. We can’t wait to see what you come up with. Send it to us via twitter or school email – schoolclosure@ricelane.liverpool.sch.uk

Monday 11th May

Good morning everyone! We hope that you all enjoyed your 3 day week-end…back to your home learning journey now!

Spelling: There will be a hive game on spellingshed at 10am to revise Y4 homophones. The code is 800462.

TTrockstars: Get ready for round 3 of the Rockstars Cup at 2pm (ish).

 

English:

https://www.bbc.co.uk/bitesize/articles/zhqbrj6

This lesson will help you to practise writing a formal report. Make sure that you watch the 1st video carefully as it is telling you all the ‘steps to success’ to include when writing a formal report. Maybe you could watch it several times and make some notes?

After completing activities 1 and 2 you should be ready to write your own formal report about your favourite celebrity. Please, please, please remember to share your hard work with your teachers via schoolclosure@ricelane.liverpool.sch.uk .

Reading: Don’t forget to read books from the virtual library on www.getepic.com. Ask your parents/carers for your class code that was sent via an email or an app.

 

Maths:

https://www.bbc.co.uk/bitesize/articles/zh9brj6

In this lesson you will be asked to calculate the area of a shape using the formula ‘width x length’. The interactive lesson should appeal to all the football fans in Y5! But if you don’t like football, don’t worry, not all the activities are about football!

 

History:

https://www.bbc.co.uk/bitesize/articles/zjrgcqt

Go back in time and learn about the famous Egyptian pharaoh Tutankhamun. Do you remember learning about Howard Carter’s discovery of Tutankhamun’s tomb when you were in Y3? It is just fascinating!

*The Viewer

Tune in with Mrs Smith for a zoom call at 11am. All you need to do is to download the app ‘zoom’ and check the app for all the information to get connected. Mrs Smith will be finishing the book we have studied in class and asking the children to retell the story.

 

Thank you to everyone who joined us! It was so lovely to see all of your faces! 

I would like you to retell the story of The Viewer - either rewrite the story as it is OR - if you fancy a challenge - change the item that is inside the box. Remember all items are designed to focus magnify or illuminate. How will you end the story? 

There will be another Zoom call at 11am tomorrow. We will be sharing our favourite paragraph of our writing with your teachers and other year 5 children. We can't wait to hear what you come up with!

 

*Other:

Noah and I are going to have a go at making a board game from scratch on a theme of his choice (probably Pokemon or Sonic the hedgehog!). It will be in the style of ‘snakes and ladders’, ‘Ludo’ or ‘Monopoly’. Once we have made it we will write instructions for other people to play it.

Can you make your own board game and write instructions for it? We would love to see your games on Twitter or via an email to schoolclosure@ricelane.liverpool.sch.uk .

 

Have a lovely day everyone and stay safe.

Mrs Williams, Mrs Smith and Mr Kendrew.
