Thursday 2nd April
Happy Birthday WIll! (P-dubs)
Guided reading: The Sleeping Volcano (read Chapter 2 see 2Do) then complete the SPAG activity
English: LO: I can plan and write a persuasive leaflet
So to finish off your leaflet, you need to include a slogan to ensure your reader wants to visit your attraction. Something like ‘See you there’ or ‘Join us for a great day out’ or something a little more creative like ‘Make all your screams come true’ (play on words).
Read your whole leaflet through to see if it sounds good. Does it persuade the reader to want to visit the attraction? Does the leaflet flow with good linking words (remember those adverbs used for cohesion!)? Have you used a good range of persuasive language tricks (remember last weeks work – for example questions, alliteration, repetition, hyperbole -exaggeration? Have you used interesting words and different types of sentences (some short and punchy for example ‘Discover Space world.’)? is your spelling and punctuation correct? Have you included some pictures to interest your reader? Have you included testimonials – Will from Crick says “It’s the wildest zoo in the world!”)?
If you have, then sit back and feel proud of yourself! (Could you email your final version to me please, either as a PowerPoint slide or a photograph if hand written).
Maths: LO: I can subtract fractions where one denominator is a multiple of the other https://corbettmaths.com/2012/08/21/fractions-addition-and-subtraction/ PowerPoint Arithmetic/varied fluency/problem solving
Science: LO: I can describe the differences in life cycles between an amphibian and an insect
All living things have the 7 life processes - MRS NERG (or MRS GREN) - first of all can you remember what they are from Year 4? If not, can you research what the 7 life processes are?
Can you remember and list the differences between amphibians and insects? List these as similarities and differences in your home learning book.
A life cycle is the different stages of life for a living thing. In science it is usually displayed as a circular diagram showing each stage in words and/or pictures. A life cycle is presented as a circle to show that seeds / offspring are created as part of the cycle.
Watch https://www.bbc.co.uk/bitesize/topics/zgssgk7 What is a life cycle? and How do animals reproduce?
Then research the life cycle of an amphibian and an insect of your choice (for example frog and dragonfly) and draw a detailed diagram showing the life cycle. Use arrows in your diagram, labels and colour carefully using colouring pencils. We used water colour pencils last year for these, but I'm not sure many of you will have these at home (you could use water colour paints carefully).
Wednesday 1st April
Guided reading: The Sleeping Volcano (read Chapter 2 see 2Do) then complete the sequencing activity
English: LO: I can use a range of persuasive tools in my writing
Now to write the middle part of your leaflet. You will need to include details of the attraction to interest your reader. Remember to use a range of persuasive language (from your learning last week) to help attract your reader. Mention the key facilities of the attraction that will appeal to your reader. Does it have a café? What is the food like? ec. Remember to include key information, for example how do you get there? What are the opening hours? etc.
Maths: LO: I can add mixed numbers and improper fractions https://corbettmaths.com/2012/08/21/fractions-addition-and-subtraction/ PowerPoint Arithmetic/varied fluency/problem solving
PE: Take part in today's Joe Wicks session!
Topic: Can you do some research for your leaflet? Remember to use the internet safely! At school we use Swiggle, can you find what you need on there? Can you find some pictures of your attraction to add to your leaflet?
Tuesday 31st March
Guided Reading: The Sleeping Volcano (read Chapter 2 see 2Do) then answer the open ended questions (click here)
English: LO: I can hook my reader’s interest.
A persuasive leaflet needs us to think about our audience and what will appeal to them. We need to begin with a ‘punchy’ slogan that will hook our reader’s interest. We will need to use a topic sentence to make it clear to our reader what we are promoting (trying to attract them to). For example: Bored with nothing to do – visit Crick village, you’ll have the time of your life! You are going to produce a leaflet on an attraction in the Americas. This could be North or South America. It will need to be an existing attraction so you can research it.
Now it’s your turn! Can you write a catchy slogan to hook your reader?
Music: LO: I can make music digitally. You will be introduced to making music digitally using 2Sequence. You will explore, edit and combine sounds using 2Sequence. Read the knowledge organiser then do the 2Do I have set to drag and drop sounds into the grid: explore harmony and build up musical scores. What difference does changing the bpm do to your composition? Do you prefer a slow or fast tempo?
Monday 30th March
Guided reading: The Sleeping Volcano (read Chapter 2 see 2Do) then answer the online multiple choice questions also set as a 2Do
English - SPAG session - LO: I can identify word classes. Word Splits 2Do – Parts of speech including nouns, verbs, adjectives and adverbs
Do you know the expected grammar for Year 5? I have also set the Year 5 Grammar vocabulary quiz as a 2Do. We will continue this over the next few weeks to support understanding.
PE - Take part in The Body Coach TV session with Joe (on YouTube)
Friday 27th March
Reading - Read for Pleasure! Sit in a comfy place and read a chapter of your favourite novel (story). Can you then summarise the chapter verbally to someone at home or even your cat, dog or guinea pig (other small pets are available!).
Outdoor learning session
English - LO: I can use imagery in a poem
Sit out in your garden in a sunny spot, close your eyes and listen. What can you hear? The birds? Any insects? Any animals (lambs/cows)? What can you smell? The scent of flowers?
I would like you to write a Haiku or a Tanka capturing the sounds, smells, feelings of springtime.
Read the PowerPoint to learn how to write each of these poems.
Can you then email them to me please? You could also add a picture using water colours/colouring pencils.
Outdoor learning - What no fractions I hear you cry? Don't worry they'll be back Monday :)
Maths - LO: I can calculate perimeter and area
I would like you to create a scaled drawing of your front/back garden, and then calculate the perimeter (outside of the shape) and the area (inside of the shape). Remember if you have a compound shape, you can separate the shape into rectangles to help. You may need to ask an adult for a tape measure or you could measure out the length of your stride using your ruler and then use your stride to calculate the lengths of the sides. Remember to add a scale for example 1cm = 1m.
Times table test – I have set a multiplication test using the Purple Mash 2Do. It is only active for today. Good luck!
Thursday 26th March
Guided reading: The Sleeping Volcano (read Chapter 1 see 2Do) then complete the SPAG activity

Science - LO: I can show how shadows change in length and position throughout the day and explain why this happens
Remember NEVER look directly at the sun!
First thing in the morning, with someone else in your house, go outside onto a path or the driveway and stand in a sunny place. Draw around your partners feet with some chalk and then draw the outline of their shadow - measure this and record it onto a table (not the sort of table you eat at!). Then repeat the drawing and measuring mid morning, early afternoon and then once more late afternoon. Your partner must stand in exactly the same place each time in the footprints from first thing in the morning (do not let them turn their feet!) Can you produce a graph to show the data you collected? Now answer these questions:
What is a shadow? When was the shadow longest/shortest? Why does the length of shadows change during the day? Why does the position of shadows change during the day?
One last scientific challenge, can you spot the International Space Station? Clear overhead passes until the 4th April around 7:30pm-9:00pm (changes each day). For exact times check https://www.meteorwatch.org/iss-international-space-station-times-uk-spring-2020/#more-8322
