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)

This week there are PSHE lessons about Black Lives Matter on Oak Academy, which is obviously an incredibly important topic. We are not setting this for you as we are going to tackle it as a school when we are back in properly, as we feel this is important to do face to face with an opportunity for discussion. In the meantime, there are some very helpful videos on Newsround.

 

Don’t forget to check Twitter (it’s on our year group page) for updates throughout the day, and to send things in to the school closure email address for us to respond to! We love hearing from you!

Good Morning year 5.

Follow these links for your home learning tasks for today.

 

First  - A quick recap on some tips for using Oak academy that were shared yesterday

I know Oak Academy is a little confusing at first, so here’s a few tips on how to navigate the lessons:

  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).

 

 

PE with Joe at 9am.

It has been a while since we have asked you to do this but it is so important to keep moving, especially when we aren’t playing outside as much with this rainy weather.

https://classroom.thenational.academy/pe/pe-with-joe-or-9th-june/

 

Spelling Shed Hive Game

Join us at 10am for our usual 10am hive game. The code is 261357 and we are focssing on words that begin with silent letters.

 

Maths

In maths, you are multiplying decimals using known multiplication facts

https://classroom.thenational.academy/lessons/to-investigate-multiplying-decimals/

 

English

https://classroom.thenational.academy/lessons/reading-comprehension-word-meaning-and-fact-retrieval

In English today we are looking at vocabulary and finding facts from the text.

Have a go at the final challenge spellings too – it’s the I before e except after c rule – a classic!

 

Something a little extra – Geography!

https://www.bbc.co.uk/bitesize/articles/z6kts4j

Bitesize today asks you to look at The Alps.

Fun fact – Mrs Williams is from the French Alps so I know she will like this activity!

Don’t forget to tweet us and email us to let us know how you’re getting on.

 

Tuesday 2nd June

More from the Oak Academy today, as well as our usual goings on.

 

Spelling

Hive game will be at 10am. The code is 912708.

 

English

https://www.thenational.academy/year-5/english/story-reading-comprehension-predicitons-year-5-wk6-2

This is more of a reading focus today, using what you already know to make predictions. Don’t forget to top it up with some reading of your own.

 

Maths

https://www.thenational.academy/year-5/maths/decimals-to-represent-multiplication-and-division-by-10-100-and-1000-year-5-wk6-2

Now I know you’re great at this. Moving digits around in your place value columns. Remember, the decimal point doesn’t move, the digits move!

 

Spanish

https://www.thenational.academy/year-5/foundation/saying-where-you-live-in-spanish-year-5-wk6-2

It’s not the French that we normally do but it’s certainly useful. Spanish is actually spoken by more people than French (don’t tell Mrs Williams) so you never know when it might come in handy!

 

PE

Our man Joe Wickes is still going strong, encouraging you to do the same.

 

Don’t forget to check Twitter (it’s on our year group page) for updates throughout the day, and to send things in to the school closure email address for us to respond to! We love hearing from you!

Lesson 2 on Week 3, all about multiplying 24 and 2 digit numbers, but using the grid method instead of the column method which might help to deepen your understanding of a process you’re already really good at!

Geography

Today’s lesson is all about the world of trade!

https://www.bbc.co.uk/bitesize/articles/zm2c92p

Join us on our YouTube channel for the next instalment of Floodland from Mrs Smith.

 

Spelling

Join us at 10am on Spelling Shed for a hive game. It’s a flashback to the beginning of year 5 to words ending in ious which sounds like eeus or shus. For example, ambitious or obvious. The code is 847667.

English

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

Today we are looking at apostrophes! First of all you will look at apostrophes for contraction. Like you are becoming you’re. Then you will look at them for possession including singular possession and the plural possession.

So singular possession is when something belongs to one person or thing, plural possession is when something belongs to more than one person or thing.

Have a watch of the videos and then have a go at the activities. You will need a pen and some paper.

Geography

Now this should be easy because we have already taught this at the beginning of year 5 but this is a great change to recap.

https://www.bbc.co.uk/bitesize/articles/zk3nscw

Today you are looking at the continents and oceans and labelling them on a map. Test your knowledge with the quiz too.

Tuesday 21st April

Happy Tuesday everyone! Here are today’s activities for you:

 

English:

https://www.bbc.co.uk/bitesize/articles/zf3492p

This lesson is all about understanding and using alliterations. It includes 2 fun videos to watch, 3 activities for you to complete and an extension activity if you feel like doing even more work on alliterations!

Remember to send any completed work or questions to schoolclosure@ricelane.liverpool.sch.uk.

Maths:

https://whiterosemaths.com/homelearning/year-5/

This lesson is about subtracting decimals within 1. Make sure that you watch the video before you complete the activities as this is something new that we haven’t done yet. Ask an adult to check the answers that are provided on the website.

Geography

https://www.bbc.co.uk/bitesize/articles/zh2nscw

This lesson will teach you about settlements and the difference between a hamlet, a village, a city and a town. In the 2nd video Kei from Tokyo and Louis from London show us their lives in these two exciting cities.

After you have watched both videos complete the 2 activities to reinforce your knowledge of settlement types.

You will then be an expert on settlement!

 

Don’t forget to also get plenty of exercise. If you are lucky enough to have a garden, why not design your own assault course and see how quickly you can complete it?

 

Keep smiling, you are doing great!

Maths

For today’s Maths, a great website is Classroom Secrets. Click on the ‘Kids’ tab at the top of the page and create a free account to access lots of great content. You just need to add a beta account to your cart, it shows up as £0.00 and you do not need to put any payment details in. You will use this website for the History task below too.

 

Today we want you to order decimals. To do this we start by looking at the whole number, then we move across to the right looking at each digit, starting with the tenths, then the hundredths and so on.

1.345 > 1.335

I know 1.345 is bigger because it has more hundredths. Have an adult show you some more examples if you are unsure.

Then have a little go at the game below.

https://kids.classroomsecrets.co.uk/resource/year-5-compare-and-order-decimals/

Then for those children who love a challenge…

https://kids.classroomsecrets.co.uk/resource/year-5-reasoning-test-practice-2/

 

Here is a handy step-by-step video from Mr Kendrew to help you out if you're struggling:

https://www.bbc.co.uk/bitesize/clips/znjqxnb

Then have a go at labelling the house below. Have a research about the things that you didn’t know.

https://kids.classroomsecrets.co.uk/resource/ks2-anglo-saxon-house/

 

We will use this for a little DT Task tomorrow 😊

Go and have a look at the webcams of animals in San Diego Zoo. There are many zoos that do this across the world – just google zoo web cam and places nearer to home pop up. Please take in to account the time difference with San Diego - we recommend this is one for the afternoon.

Watch the animals in their habitats 😊
