Week 12



The National Academy are looking at Newspaper reports this week, with a SPAG focus on direct and indirect speech, which fits wonderfully with what we would have been doing this term, so please complete the week's worth of lessons on this. 



I have added a reading comprehension task about "The Man Who Moved a Mountain" for you to complete. 


You should also still have the 2nd half of the reading test from last week to do. 


Please ensure that you continue to read every day. Aim to spend 30 minutes reading. If you're stuck for ideas of what to read, I've added 28 books recommended for children in Year 5 further down the page. 




Purple Mash activity has been set as a 2do. 


In addition, please complete the activity mat and the grammar test in the resources section. 



While we're off, you should try to recap the Orange words that we've covered so far. Take between 6 and 10 a week to revise and test yourself on them. Don't move on to any new words as we have already covered enough of the words for this year and we would be recapping the ones we've already covered if we were in school. 





White Rose Summer Term week . This week we're introducing percentages and making sure we know what they are.   The worksheets and answer sheets are in the resources section below.


I have attached an arithmetic test for you to do, and you should have your multipication and division activity pack to complete. 



Now that Joe Wicks has stopped doing daily workouts, use a combination of Joe, Cosmic Yoga, and Just Dance to ensure that you are getting a daily workout. I've also added a couple of videos below that Nicola from Leeds Rhinos, who does our dance lessons, has sent through to us. Of course, many of you have been cycling and walking lots during this time, so keep that up too. You don't need to over-exert yourself, just make sure you're doing a bit of exercise daily. 




I've added two lessons of science to the resources. The first focuses on the planets and the second focuses on the geocentric and heliocentric models- which will be explained in the lessons. The heliocentric and geocentric lesson is a bit tricky to manage at home, so I've added a couple of notes to the powerpoint. Also, the powerpoint was too big to upload with the videos embedded so I have added those separately. The main focus of the learning is knowing what the two models are and how they came to change over time. We usually do a song about this, but it isn't possible to use this at the moment. I'm still working on a way to get the song on the webpage so that we can learn it. 



This National Academy lesson uses shade to show that objects are 3-dimensional. I'm looking forward to seeing your work on this lesson.





Back to coding- Choose your own activity from or continue the code club Scratch modules



We return to our lessons on smoking. This week, we look at an illegal drug called cannabis and the dangerous effects it has on the human body.
