Good morning Year 5

Remember, your first job is to send a 'Good Morning' message to your class teacher on I Am Learning by 10 am. In your message, include your Maths and spelling score 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

Spelling (20 minutes)

New words –

desert, dessert, flaw, floor, steal, steel, bored, board, draft, draught


Look up the definitions of any words that you are not familiar with. You could record them in a notebook or on paper.


Arithmetic (30minutes)

Watch the videos below about percentages. Then log onto I am Learning. Complete the task ‘Percentages’. Remember that there is a video on I am Learning that you must watch before you complete the task.


Reading (10 minutes)

Choose a book to read and enjoy this week. It could be a book that you have at home, an e-book or a book that is available on Oxford Owl. Read at least 10 minutes of the book every day.


Discuss the book with someone at home. You could use some of the questions in the document below.



A positive thinker is someone who looks for the good in every situation. A great way to get in to the habit of positive thinking is to focus on what is good about today. It can be something that has already happened, or something that is going to happen, that you are looking forward to. It can even be something you plan to do for someone else, that will make it a good day for them. Think of three different ways to finish this statement: ‘Today is a good day because…’


Now think of something that makes you smile. Is it something you can do today to make your day even better? It could be something small.


Focusing on what makes us happy can help us to be positive thinkers. List some activities/people that make you happy. Now create a short poem called ‘Happiness is…’ Don’t worry too much about it rhyming. Just try to express what makes you happiest. 


Science (1 hour)

L.O. To be able to associate the brightness of a lamp with the number and voltage of cells.


Task 1: Below are some statements about why we might take repeated measurements in an investigation. Make two lists – one which lists the correct (true) statements and one which lists the incorrect (false) statements. When you have done this rank the correct statements by deciding which are more important (1 being the most important).


  • Because we need to measure accurately
  • Because things might be a little different, so we will need an average
  • Because we need to check our results
  • Because readings can be different
  • Because we need to make the test fair
  • Because we need to all have a go
  • Because the first reading might not be right
  • Because we need more evidence


Task 2: Watch the videos and read the information from the below links. Make notes (you can pause the videos to do this if you need to).


Task 3: Think back to your Electric Scarecrow task last week. The farmer you are making the scarecrow for needs to know what the effect will be if you added more batteries (or cells) to your scarecrow circuit. Answer these two questions in as much detail as you can:

  • How will the number of batteries affect the brightness of any bulbs in your scarecrow?
  • How could you apply fair testing to the new changes? Tip: Write about what components you would be changing if any and which would be staying the same and why.



Votes for schools (20 minutes)

See this information on the class pages. Discuss your thoughts with your family.
