Monday

Please do not begin this work until Monday 8th June 2020

 

Good morning Year 5.

Remember, your first job every day is to send a 'Good Morning' message to your class teacher on I Am Learning by 10 am. Remember to send your Maths and Spelling scores from Friday. 

 

If you run out of space in any exercise books (orange Maths or yellow English book), please ask an adult to contact the office to arrange to pick up a new one.

 

PE with Joe Wicks (30 minutes)

Optional PE: complete a daily challenge https://www.parkhalljuniorac.co.uk/pe-activities/

Spelling (20 minutes)

We are now going to focus on homophones and near homophones. A homophone is a word that sounds the same as another word but its spelling or meaning is different.

 

New words –

farther, father, band, banned, heard, herd, aloud, allowed, guessed, guest

 

Look up the definitions of any words that you are not familiar with. You could record them in a notebook or on paper. Then practise spelling the words (write, write, cover and write, cover and write, check). Continue to practise any you do not spell correctly.

 

Arithmetic (20 minutes)

Mark your work from Friday (multiplication). You will find the answers at the top of this page.

Then complete the task on I am Learning ‘Add and subtract using known addition facts’.

 

Science (2 hours)

In Science, we have been learning about light, how it travels, how we see things and how shadows are formed. Today, you are going to review this information and show what you have discovered about light.

 

First, complete the task on I am Learning ‘Light: sources and travel’.

 

Then we would like you to create an educational booklet for children all about light. You should include sections to explain the following: light sources, how light travels, how we see things (include information about the eye and a diagram to show this), shadows and how they are formed. Make sure that your explanations are clear and easy to understand. You can present the booklet however you like and should use diagrams or pictures to support your information. Below are some key scientific words that you should use in your booklet. Be creative and make them bright and colourful. Use your blue pen to write the information and colours for images/titles. Remember that you can refer back to your work from recent science lessons for more information. Some of the videos we have recently watched are below if you would like to watch them again.
