YEAR 5 HOME LEARNING

WRITING

Go to www.pobble365.com.  Complete daily work for each picture on there.  I would love you to share your writing that you produce – be imaginative!

 

Dear Parents,

Here are some activities for the children to complete in their self-isolation period. These are aimed to continue some learning and secure key skills ready for the return to school.

If you have any questions please contact me via dojo or email on jleach@stjohnstiverton.co.uk

Thank-you for your continued support,

Miss Leach

 

 

SCIENCE

Scientists use chemical reactions to create useful new materials.

Can you create a fact file about a scientist and the new material they made?

You should research the scientist and their life, such as when and where they lived, and what they did. You should also find out about the new material, its properties and how it is useful.

Your fact file could be written on a piece of paper, made into a book or created using a computer. Include pictures and diagrams to add interest!

Examples of scientists and the new materials they made include:

  • Ruth Benerito, who invented wrinkle-free cotton.
  • Spencer Silver, who invented the glue for sticky notes.
  • Leo Baekeland, who invented a plastic called Bakelite.
  • Harry Brearly, who invented stainless steel.
  • John McAdam, who invented tarmac.

MATHS

 

FLUENT IN FIVE

Complete this daily. It should only be 10 minutes.

 

MY MATHS

1 My Maths Task has been set for each day of the week and lots of extra times tables practice too! Work your way through as many as possible.

 

TIMES TABLES

Hit The Button. Go online and practise 3x a week.

 

Any extra time you have practise your key skills (addition, subtraction, multiplication and division) on mathsframe.co.uk.

 

DAILY READING

There is still an expectation that children will read at least three times a week and fill in their reading records.  This is a great opportunity to read some good books and get some points on Accelerated Reader.

 

READ THEORY

Log in and complete at least one quiz every week day.

 

ART

Create a new mythical beast that uses a part from 4 different creatures. Decorate your beast how you want- collage, paint, colour, lines etc. Annotate your drawing.
