‘Letting our light shine as we live, love and learn, together with Jesus’

Year 5 2019-20

Hello Year Five

Do not judge, and you will not be judged. Do not condemn, and you will not be condemned. Forgive, and you will be forgiven.

Luke 6:37

What a wonderful first week of learning from home it was last week! A very different situation for us all but something I think our Year 5 team handled really well.

I loved getting your emails, pictures and times table challenges. It was so fantastic to see your enthusiastic and creative attitudes to learning even whilst you’ve been at home. Some of the acts of random kindness that you did on Friday were just brilliant, thanks for sending those over! I’m very proud of you all and would love to hear from you even more this week!

I’m hoping that you have even more fun from Monday with the tasks that I am setting and are still making sure that we are all learning as much as possible during this tricky time… I wonder if you could still answer some of these questions?

  • What is the name of the largest lake in South America?
  • What does having blue blood represent?
  • When dealing with adding or subtracting fractions the denominators need to be the ____________?

Just a little something for you all to think about.

Please join Boris the robot for his daily broadcast, there are also some lovely optional, extra activities for you to complete:

Have a wonderful week and I will be in touch very soon,

Mr Pearce smiley

Prayer

Dear God,

Even in these worrying times for us all, thank you for the joy and life that you are still providing us with.

We are thankful for the opportunities we have to spend time with our loved ones and are hopeful for those who are sick so that they become well again and are able to see their families too.

We appreciate the precious lives we have and are extremely grateful.

Amen.

Handwriting and spelling

This week we are going to have a ‘prefix’ week. As you know, a prefix goes at the start of a word, so we will be practising a number of those this week.

Please start by finding the spelling rule ‘Prefixes (group of letters at the start of a word)’ in your spellings booklet. The next column shows you each prefix and what it means or how it is used.

I would like you to practice writing eight words, written five times on each line in your handwriting books. This will then be used in a final prefix task on Friday.

Today’s words are;

unable, unlock, disappear, mistake, refill, rebuild, irregular and supermarket

Geography

Last half term we looked at biomes and in particular a ‘tropical rainforest’ biome – The Amazon Rainforest.

North America (but also the UK) is mostly a ‘temperate deciduous forest’ biome.

If you can, go outside or to somewhere close by with lots of trees/woodland.  Take pictures (to draw later) or sketch some of the different trees and leaves that you find there.

Then create a fact file (using a double page in your exercise book) about the diverse trees you would find in this biome, using drawings to help.

As a challenge, research some animals too that have this as their habitat and add drawings of these and information about them.

Science         

Earlier in the year we looked at materials and how they changed and why they were useful for different things. For example, glass is useful for windows because it is waterproof and transparent so inside we stay dry and can see outside.

  • First of all, I would like you to pick an object from around your house.
  • Draw a picture of it and label the different materials it is made from.
  • Identify the properties of each of these materials (hard, flexible or opaque for example) and why they were chosen. Eg. A frying pan is metal to conduct the heat and it is strong and the wooden or plastic handle is there to insulate the heat and stop it getting too hot to hold.

History

Earlier in the year we learned all about the Vikings and how they arrived in Britain hoping to raid and take as much as they could – they loved monasteries if you remember because they were full of precious things and weren’t guarded.

However, when they arrived, they met another group of travellers called the Anglo Saxons and these people had been in Britain for a long time and had already settled in lots of different places.

One of the places that they settled was called ‘Sutton Hoo’ which is now extremely famous.

I would like you to create a colourful and exciting poster in your exercise books telling me why it is famous and give me lots more information about it, including detailed drawings of what you found.

PSHE - ARK

Wouldn’t it be nice to do another ‘act of random kindness’ for a family member as it it’s Friday!!

However big or small, I’m sure you can think of something really lovely to do for someone in your home. And try to thank them too for all the wonderful things they do for you.

P.S. Have a lovely weekend! smiley
