Friday 5th March 2021

Good morning Year 5.

Well done, we have finally made it to the end of another Lockdown Learning period.

Well done for getting through it and keeping a smile on your faces! laughyes

I am really looking forward to seeing you all back in school on Monday morning.

I hope you all enjoyed the World Book Day activities yesterday. Well done to all those of you who dressed up as book characters, it was a great effort! laughyes

I received a few more pictures yesterday of you reading your book in interesting positions.

 

 

 

Don't forget to head over to the school videos section on our website and watch the video,

'We're Going On A Staff Hunt.'

All the staff have read sections of the book 'We're Going on a Bear Hunt.'

Your challenge is to guess which member of staff is reading each part of the story.

Scroll down to Yesterday to find the form you can print off to write your answers on. Or you can email your answers to Mrs Taylor in the School Office.

Remember there are £5 worth of book tokens for the winners.

Good Luck! laughyes

 

Here is your maths activity for today.

For this week’s minute maths, I would like you to copy the questions onto paper and then work out the answers and write them on your paper. You could make more sheets and time yourself and try and beat your score each time.

This week we are going to look at division facts. Once you are getting 100% for each column then start to time yourself and have a few goes to see if you can beat your time. What is the quickest time you can get 100% for each column? Can you do it in less than 1 minute for each column? That is your challenge for this week.

As well as doing your minute maths today I would like you to log on and do TTRockstars to practise your times tables and also log on to mathletics to practise your maths skills.

There are two other things I would like you to look at this week.

The first one is from BBC Bitesize ‘Guardians – Defenders of Mathematica’

Click on the link below to get to the game.

https://www.bbc.co.uk/games/embed/guardians-mathematica?exitGameUrl=https%3A%2F%2Fbbc.com%2Fbitesize%2Farticles%2Fzn2y7nb

Make sure you can see this screen.

 

Here is your English activity for today.

Here are your spellings for next week.

There is a spelling rule you might have heard of which is: ‘ i before e except after c’. Most words follow that rule but as always in the English language there are some words that don’t follow a rule. T his week’s words are one that don’t follow that rule so we just need to learn how to spell them.

Try and find a way to help you remember how to spell each one.

If there are any of this week’s words that you don’t understand then look them up in a dictionary to find the definition.

Write an interesting sentence for each of your spelling words. Try to start your sentences in different ways. Remember to include the correct punctuation including commas, question marks, exclamation marks, capital letters and full stops. Make sure you spell all your words correctly.

Can you start any of your sentences with an adverb?

 

 

Here is your Topic activity for today.

Click on the tab below to watch Newsround to find out what has been going on in the news this week.

https://www.bbc.co.uk/newsround

Every Friday I would like you to write a diary or some form of report on or record events that have happened in the news throughout the week. It is a good idea to watch Newsround every day and make notes that you could then use to help you on the Friday. I would like you to write about what has been happening about the Corona Virus Pandemic each week, as well as other interesting news events from the week.

You can also write about your own feelings in a personal diary too. This is a good idea to help you to cope with things at the moment because it is very different for all of us. In years to come, children will be learning about this pandemic in their history lessons.

 

Thursday 4th March 2021

Good morning Year 5.

Guided Reading

Chapter 12 – Shrimps

Go to the school videos section on the website and watch the video of me reading this chapter first.

Now have a go at reading the text for yourself before you answer the questions. You will need to keep going back to the text to find the answers.

Where it says find and copy – make sure that you copy the exact words from the text do not write it in your own words.

Good morning Year 5.

Don't forget to email me the pictures of you reading in an unusual place or position by this evening so that I can add them to the website for Thursday.

clare.hulme@salford.gov.uk

Or you can insert them into a document on Google classroom and send them to me that way.

Also choose your favourite book and pick a short passage you can read to us on Thursday during our zoom lesson. We want to introduce ourselves to lots of new books and authors, and books you might not have thought about reading before.

Remember to dress up for World Book Day on Thursday even if you are at home, I'm looking forward to seeing your costumes during our zoom lesson on Thursday.

Don't forget to click on the e-library to have a look at some of the books on offer.

Click on the document below to get to the World Book Day e-library.

For part of World Book Day there are also some live lessons happening this week. Here is a timetable of events. You might like to log in and take part.

There are also some other live lessons taking part.

Here is your maths lesson for today.

Today we are going to be using the chunking method to work out division questions.

Click on the link below and watch my video to remind you how to use the chunking method.

https://expl.ai/KBBFUVC

Now have a go at answering the questions.

Here is your English activity.

Today we are going to be doing some descriptive writing about Dodger taking Oliver to meet Fagin for the first time.

Click on the link to watch today’s lesson.

https://classroom.thenational.academy/lessons/to-plan-and-write-the-first-part-of-a-narrative-scene-68wkar?activity=video&step=1

Now have a go at doing today’s writing task.

As you watch the clip of the film in the lesson I would like you to think about what you can see so that later you can add descriptive detail in your writing. Make notes as you watch the clip.

Here are some of the things that you should have spotted:

Use the pictures below to help you to retell this scene from the story. Either say it aloud to yourself or tell someone in your family. Add as much detail as you can. Include adjectives, precise verbs and adverbs, as well as show not tell.

Now you have retold this part of the story I would like you to have a go at writing it. Think about all the things we have talked about in the lesson video. Remember to check your writing as you are going along. Check your punctuation; remember commas for clauses as well. Edit and improve your writing until it is the best it can be. Think about your sentences first, then write them down and then check them. Read your work through regularly to see how you can edit and improve it.

Here is your success criteria for today.

Here is the modeled text from today’s lesson.

Now have a go at writing your own paragraphs about this part of the story. Remember to read check and edit your writing.

 

 

 

Here is your science activity

Today in Science we are learning about reversible and irreversible changes.

A reversible change is when we can get the ingredients back to their original state.

An irreversible change is when the ingredients cannot be changed back again to their original state.

In an irreversible change, new materials are always formed. Sometimes these new materials are useful to us.

Click on the link below to watch the short clip about irreversible and reversible changes.

https://www.bbc.co.uk/bitesize/topics/zjty4wx/articles/zk9mt39

Once you have watched the clip, read the information underneath the video about irreversible and reversible changes. Then have a go at the game, drag the object into the correct place to say whether it is a reversible or irreversible change. Once you have dragged them all, click on the check button to check your answers.

Once you have played the game, have a go a playing the quiz underneath it.

You are now ready to complete today’s science task.

Look at the chart on today’s task. For each material, name it, say whether it is a liquid, solid or gas and then explain what will happen to it once it is heated. Then say whether it is a reversible or irreversible change. For example the first picture shows ice, this is a solid. When it is heated, the ice turns into water which is a liquid. We can get the ice back by freezing the water, so this is a reversible change. We can continuously change from water to ice and back again.

Now have a go at completing the chart yourself.

Material:

Name of material:

What happens when it is heated:

Reversible or irreversible change?

Ice - solid

Ice melts and turns into water which is a liquid.

Reversible

Here is your English activity

To practise conveying character through verb and adverb choices

In this lesson, we will review the role of verbs and adverbs in adding precision to our writing. In particular, we will think about how the correct choice of verbs and adverbs helps us gain a better understanding of characters. We will be looking closely at the character of Fagin to practise this skill.

Click on the link below to watch today’s lesson.

https://classroom.thenational.academy/lessons/to-practise-conveying-character-through-verb-and-adverb-choices-cnjkad?activity=video&step=1

Now have a go at the writing task. Remember to read the task carefully.

 

There are lots of mistakes in this sentence. Write the correct sentence without the mistakes below. Make sure you include the correct punctuation. Think about capital letters, full stops, commas and words that you might need to change.

 

Today we are going to be focusing on the Character Fagin.

 

 

 

Write a list of things below, that we already know about Fagin.

 

Read this extract about Fagin and highlight the verbs in green and the adverbs in pink?

 

Fagin smiled warmly at Oliver as he bent over. He laughed and asked the boys to move.

 

The extract above is very simple. I would like you to rewrite the extract and improve the verbs and adverbs to make them more precise. Can you think of something that is even better than bent over, or laughed or asked? Remember to include adverbs to describe your verbs in more detail to tell us how something is being done. 

 

Have a look at this scene from the story.

 

Write some sentences about Fagin winking at the boys after he lied about washing the handkerchiefs. Include precise verbs and adverbs that will show the reader that Fagin is not a trustworthy character. Remember to read, check and edit your sentences to make them the best they can be.

You will need to write six sentences altogether.

 

Now write a sentence for each of these fronted adverbials that tell you where something happened. You will need to write six sentences.

 

Finally write a sentence for each of these fronted adverbials that tell you how something happened. You will need to write six sentences.

 

Here is your topic activity for today.

Today we are going to continue with the work from last week about jobs at Salford Docks. This is our last lesson on Locks and Quays.

Read the information about the jobs at Salford Docks when it first opened.

Salford Docks, now renamed Salford Quays, was once one of Britain's busiest ports and an industrial powerhouse. It employed up to 5,000 people moving goods in and out of Manchester until its eventual closure in 1982.

An exhibition at The Lowry, called Unlocking Salford Quays, recalls the industrial heritage of the area.

Fight to work

Built at the end of the 35-mile (56 km) Manchester Ship Canal, Salford Docks were opened in 1894 by Queen Victoria. Ships weighing up to 12,500 tonnes (11,340,000 kg) delivered products from all over the world, especially America and Canada.

Although the main cargoes were cotton, grain and timber, commodities were brought from around the world, including tea, fruit, live and frozen cattle, lard, oil, petroleum and sulphur. Exports included textiles, machinery, cars and locomotives, thanks to Manchester's huge industrial base.

The dock workers had to work 12-hour shifts and had to fight to get work if there were more men than jobs. Raymond Probert, who maintained the docks, said: "The people were fantastic, they came from all walks of life."

"In the winter, it was very cold and you were working in the water all the time - it was hard.

 

Now answer the questions below in blue and write in full sentences please.

 

  1. What products did the ships export? And why?
  2. How many hours a day did the dock workers have to work?
  3. Why was it difficult to get a job at the docks?
  4. Raymond Probert maintained the docks what does this mean?
  5. Raymond Probert said that the people were fantastic and came from all walks of life, what does this mean?
  6. Why was it so hard working in the docks in the winter?
  7. How many cranes were in operation at Salford Docks?
  8. How many cranes remain today?
  9. What happened in 1988?
  10. Why did not many people like driving the cranes?
  11. What did the workers have to do as quickly as possible?
  12. Can you list all the jobs that you think the workers at the docks would have had to do?
  13. Write a list of the jobs that people do at Salford Quays now?

 

 

 

Friday 26th February 2021

Good morning Year 5. We are at the end of yet another busy week. Well done for all your hard work this week, especially with your writing. laughyes

Here is a picture of Finn with the lantern he made in the RE lesson this week. Well done Finn.

Here is your maths activity for today.

For this week’s minute maths, I would like you to copy the questions onto paper and then work out the answers and write them on your paper. You could make more sheets and time yourself and try and beat your score each time.

This week we are going back to practise our times tables. We are focusing on the 6, 7, 8 and 9 times tables. Once you are getting 100% for each column then start to time yourself and have a few goes to see if you can beat your time. What is the quickest time you can get 100% for each column? Can you do it in less than 1 minute for each column? That is your challenge for this week.

As well as doing your minute maths today I would like you to log on and do TTRockstars to practise your times tables and also log on to mathletics to practise your maths skills.

There is one other thing I would like you to look at this week.

The first one is from BBC Bitesize ‘Guardians – Defenders of Mathematica’

Click the play button to play the game to practise your times tables.

Here is your English activity for today.

Here are your spellings for next week.

All the words this week are challenge words. They don’t follow any rule.

Try and find a way to help you remember how to spell each one.

If there are any of this week’s words that you don’t understand then look them up in a dictionary to find the definition.

Write an interesting sentence for each of your spelling words. Try to start your sentences in different ways. Remember to include the correct punctuation including commas, question marks, exclamation marks, capital letters and full stops. Make sure you spell all your words correctly.

Can you start any of your sentences with an adverb?

Here is your topic activity for this afternoon.

Every Friday I would like you to write a diary or some form of report on or record events that have happened in the news throughout the week. It is a good idea to watch Newsround every day and make notes that you could then use to help you on the Friday. I would like you to write about what has been happening about the Corona Virus Pandemic each week, as well as other interesting news events from the week.

You can also write about your own feelings in a personal diary too. This is a good idea to help you to cope with things at the moment because it is very different for all of us. In years to come, children will be learning about this pandemic in their history lessons.

Good morning Year 5. 

I loved reading your writing yesterday, you have done such a good job to use all the skills we have learned so far and incorporate them in to your writing.

First of all I would like to share a couple of pictures from our RE challenges from our lesson yesterday. Sophie and Jack made some lamps. I love the shapes that Sophie has cut out of hers and I love the words that Jack has chosen to write on his lamp.

Orion decided to give little presents to the lights of his life to show how much he appreciates them. Here he is giving gifts to his auntie, cousin and grandma. A very thoughtful gesture Orion.

Now it’s your turn. I am looking forward to reading your writing today.

Here is your Science activity for today.

Today we are going to be continuing our topic of materials.

Today we are going to be thinking about the properties of materials.

Watch the clip below.

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=tAEQDu7juEg

Objects have different properties which mean they are useful for different things.

The properties of a material will determine how it is used. For example, steel is a very hard and strong material so it is good for building with. Rubber is very soft and flexible so it is not a good material to build with.

Look at the definitions of properties and write the correct definition next to each property.

Fill in the ones you know first and then see if you can work out the rest. You can also look up the definitions in a dictionary to help you.

 

Look at the list properties of materials and the definitions underneath. In the chart below, write the correct definition next to each property.

Magnetic

 

 

Reflective

 

 

Absorbent

 

 

Permeable

 

 

Translucent

 

 

Flexible

 

 

Hard

 

 

Flammable

 

 

Insulating

 

 

Transparent

 

 

 

Have a look around your house to see if you can find any objects with those properties

and write a list of them under the chart.

You could even make a chart and insert some pictures of objects for each property.

I look forward to seeing them.

Tuesday 23rd February 2021

The first thing I would like you to do today is to read the first part of the build up that we did in a previous lesson before half term.

Now think about the next part of the story using the My turn model write to help you. You can use ideas from the My turn writing but I would like you to use your own ideas and vocabulary too.

 

Make sure you do your writing in paragraphs. Check your spelling and punctuation and be adventurous with your vocabulary choices. Try to start your sentences in different ways. Include expanded noun phrases, adjective and adverbs, show not tell. Short sentences to build up the tension. Think about all the things you have learned so far.

Read your writing as you go along to make sure that it makes sense. Edit and improve it until it is the best it can be.

I am looking forward to reading your writing.

Once you have watched the clip of the film, have a go a retelling the story you have seen. If you don’t have anyone to tell the story to, just say it aloud to yourself. Use the pictures to help you remember what happens at each stage of the story.

Now complete sections 1 to 4 on the chart.

 

 You can re-watch the video again to help you if you need to.

I have also added the completed plans from the lesson to help you.

You can use ideas from that but also add ideas of your own.

 

Here is your topic activity for this afternoon.

Read the information about the jobs at Salford Docks when it first opened.

Salford Docks, now renamed Salford Quays, was once one of Britain's busiest ports and an industrial powerhouse. It employed up to 5,000 people moving goods in and out of Manchester until its eventual closure in 1982. An exhibition shown at The Lowry, called Unlocking Salford Quays, recalled the industrial heritage of the area.

Fight to work

Built at the end of the 35-mile (56 km) Manchester Ship Canal, Salford Docks were opened in 1894 by Queen Victoria. Ships weighing up to 12,500 tonnes (11,340,000 kg) delivered products from all over the world, especially America and Canada.

Although the main cargoes were cotton, grain and timber, commodities were brought from around the world, including tea, fruit, live and frozen cattle, lard, oil, petroleum and sulphur.

 

Exports included textiles, machinery, cars and locomotives, thanks to Manchester's huge industrial base.

 

The dock workers had to work 12-hour shifts and had to fight to get work if there were more men than jobs. Raymond Probert, who maintained the docks, said: "The people were fantastic, they came from all walks of life." 

"In the winter, it was very cold and you were working in the water all the time - it was hard.

"In the summer, you could dive in the water, it was so hot."

In its heyday, more than 200 cranes used to be in operation at Salford Docks.

Today, just two remain.

 

In 1988 they were dismantled and re-erected on the present site as a landmark and a reminder of the working docks. Mr Wilson used to drive the cranes, referring to them as the 'Hurdy Gurdys'.

"There were not many people who drove the cranes because they swayed so much.

"When they picked a load up, they swayed a foot forward, and when you released a load they swayed a foot back."

"It was a dangerous job," he added. "There were ships in here queuing up like mad, and the idea was to unload and reload them as quickly as possible."

 

Now answer the questions below in full sentences please.

  1. What did Salford Quays used to be called?
  2. How many people were employed at the docks?
  3. When did Manchester docks close?
  4. What was the main purpose of the docks – why were they built?
  5. How long is the Manchester ship canal?
  6. Where was Salford Docks built?
  7. What year was Salford Docks built?
  8. Who opened the docks and in what year?
  9. How heavy were the ships that used the canal?
  10. Which countries did the ships mainly deliver goods from?
  11. What cargo did most of the ships carry?
  12. What other cargo was brought from around the world?

 

 

Friday 12th February 2021

Good morning Year 5.

Give yourselves a huge pat on the back, we made it to half term!

Well done for all your hard work over the last six weeks, I am very proud of you.

Enjoy your well deserved break over half term and I look forward to seeing you all again on zoom after half term.

Be good and stay safe! laughyes

I have a few more pictures to share with you today.

See if you can spot the birds in these pictures that Ava and her family took.

 

Did you spot them? What birds did you see?

Here is Mia's poster.

 

Here is your maths activity for today.

For this week’s minute maths, I would like you to copy the questions onto paper and then work out the answers and write them on your paper. You could make more sheets and time yourself and try and beat your score each time.

This week we are going back to practise our times tables. We are focusing on the 2, 3, 4 and 5 times tables. Once you are getting 100% for each column then start to time yourself and have a few goes to see if you can beat your time. What is the quickest time you can get 100% for each column? Can you do it in less than 1 minute for each column? That is your challenge for this week.

As well as doing your minute maths today I would like you to log on and do TTRockstars to practise your times tables and also log on to mathletics to practise your maths skills.

There are two other things I would like you to look at this week.

The first one is from BBC Bitesize ‘Guardians – Defenders of Mathematica’

Click on the link below to get to the game.

https://www.bbc.co.uk/games/embed/guardians-mathematica?exitGameUrl=https%3A%2F%2Fbbc.com%2Fbitesize%2Farticles%2Fzn2y7nb

Make sure you can see this screen.

 

 

The second thing I would like you to look at is from the magician Dazzling Darren.

Click on the link below. This will take you to the Dazzling Darren page. He will be doing a maths lesson and showing you some magic tricks at the same time.

 The lesson will be live at 2.30pm and lasts for 30 minutes.

https://www.dazzlingdarren.co.uk/maths/

The show is streamed on YouTube on the Dazzling Darren YouTube Channel.

Here is a link to the PDF you can print out if you want to have a go at doing the trick yourself.

 

 

Here is your English activity for today.

Here are your spellings for the first week back after half term.

All the words have silent letters in them. That means that we don’t hear the sound of the letter within the word.

Try and find a way to help you remember how to spell each one.

If there are any of this week’s words that you don’t understand then look them up in a dictionary to find the definition.

Write an interesting sentence for each of your spelling words. Try to start your sentences in different ways. Remember to include the correct punctuation including commas, question marks, exclamation marks, capital letters and full stops. Make sure you spell all your words correctly.

Can you start any of your sentences with an adverb?

 

Here is your topic activity for this afternoon.

Click on the tab below to watch Newsround to find out what has been going on in the news this week.

https://www.bbc.co.uk/newsround

Every Friday I would like you to write a diary or some form of report on or record events that have happened in the news throughout the week. It is a good idea to watch Newsround every day and make notes that you could then use to help you on the Friday. I would like you to write about what has been happening about the Corona Virus Pandemic each week, as well as other interesting news events from the week.

You can also write about your own feelings in a personal diary too. This is a good idea to help you to cope with things at the moment because it is very different for all of us. In years to come, children will be learning about this pandemic in their history lessons.

 

Thursday 11th February 2021

Good morning Year 5.

Well done with all the work you have been doing so far. laughyes

Once you have watched the lesson, look at the task below.

How would you describe this setting?

Think of as many expanded noun phrases as you can to describe the scene.

Remember an ENP needs an adjective, adjective noun.

Now use these ENP's to write complete sentences.

 

Now we are going to plan the next part of the story.

Complete the chart for the story scenes. You can go back and watch the sections of the video as many times as you need to, you do not need to remember the information.

 

Expanded noun phrases

Adjective, adjective noun

personification

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Oliver’s appearance

Verbs and adverbs to describe Oliver’s movements.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Expanded noun phrases

Adjective, adjective noun

Verbs and adverbs to describe the action in the market place

 

 

 

The boy’s appearance and movements

Oliver’s reaction

 

 

 

 

Here are the plans from today's lesson to help you but make sure you also use ideas of your own.

Here is your topic lesson for today.

Birds face many dangers every day.

Today I would like you to make a poster to warn people about the dangers they can cause to birds. Can you think of any other dangers that birds may face. Are there other things that humans are doing which could put birds in danger? Add this information to your poster.

The aim of the poster is to make people aware of their actions and to make them realise that what they are doing can be harmful to birds and so they should stop that particular behaviour.

Now create a poster to inform people of the things that they can do to help protect birds.

Add pictures as well as written information. Think about the layout of your poster, think about what it will look like and think carefully about the information you include.

 Email your posters to me so that I can add them to the Class page.

 I am looking forward to seeing them.

Tuesday 9th February 2021

Good morning Year 5.

I received more great work today on our RSPB project. See if you can spot your work in the gallery below.

 

 

Here is your maths activity for today.

Today we are going to continue with improper fractions and mixed numbers.

First of all watch the video again to remind you how to change improper fractions to mixed numbers and vice versa.

Improper fractions and mixed numbers

Still image for this video

Now have a go at answering the questions.

Here is your English activity for today.

Today we are going to be learning about the rules for punctuating speech.

Click on the link to watch today’s lesson.

https://classroom.thenational.academy/lessons/to-practise-using-speech-in-complex-sentences-64w3jr?activity=video&step=1

Now complete the writing task for today.

Here is the speech sandwich which will help you with your writing today.

 

 

Look at the speech sandwich to help you to punctuate these sentences correctly.  These sentences all have the speech first.

 

1. Where are you from then questioned Dodger.

   2. I’ve been walking for seven days uttered Oliver.

 3. Seven days exclaimed Dodger in astonishment.

      4. My name is Jack Dawkins said Dodger confidently.

              5. Why are you known as the Artful Dodger Oliver asked curiously.

 

 

In the next set of questions they all have the speech second.

1. Dodger questioned where are you from then.

    2. Oliver uttered I’ve been walking for seven days.

     3. Dodger said confidently my name is Jack Dawkins

            4. Oliver asked curiously why are you known as the Artful Dodger

                    5. Write a list of as many synonyms as you can for the word ‘Said’.

 

 

Here is a list of subordinating conjunctions:

as, when because, if, before, after, while although.

For the next sentences, highlight the subordinate clause in pink and underline the subordinating conjunction.

For example:

Because he was hungry, Oliver went to ask for more food.

Now you do the same for this sentence.

 

Oliver went to ask for more food because he was hungry.

 

Now write three sentences of your own which include a subordinating conjunction from the list above. Use a different subordinating conjunction each time.

 

Here is your last activity for today. You will need to watch the film clip from the lesson video again before you complete this task. You will need to watch the clip more than once. Keep going back to it as much as you need to. When you write your sentences, make sure you check you have all the correct speech punctuation.

Your topic lesson today is to complete your bird fact file from yesterday.

Scroll down and look at the topic lesson from yesterday.

Now have a go at the writing task.

Now you are going to have a go at writing your own expanded noun phrases about the story Oliver Twist.

Let’s start with Oliver.

Write a list of words to describe Oliver.

Now write use some of these words to write some expanded noun phrases (ENP) about Oliver.

Remember an ENP does not have a verb in it.

Have a go at writing a list of words to describe these children.

Now write some expanded noun phrases about the children in the picture.

Have a go at writing a list of words to describe this picture of the boys in the dining hall.

 

Now write some expanded noun phrases about the boys in the dining hall.

Finally use your expanded noun phrases from above to write complete sentences.

 

 

Here is your topic activity for today and tomorrow.

Today we are continuing with our project on the Big Schools’ Birdwatch.

So far you should have learnt lots of interesting facts about birds. Today I would like you to read the fact file about birds and then create your own fact file.

I would like you to write as much information as possible and go into as much detail as you can so this is your afternoon topic lesson for today and tomorrow. I would like you to make a fantastic job of it.

Think about everything you have learned about birds so far. You can use some information from the fact file I have included but I would also like you to include your own information. You can do extra research to find out more information. Have a look at the RSPB website.

Think about how you are going to present your work. You will need a title and include subheadings. Insert pictures as well.

I am looking forward to seeing your finished fact files tomorrow.

Friday 5th February 2021

Good morning Year 5.

I have loved seeing your pictures of the bird drawings you did yesterday. They are so good I needed to share them with you. See if you can spot your drawing in this gallery.

 

Mia also sent a picture of the bird feeder she is making. She still needs to paint it but this looks great. 

Can you spot the robin feeding on Mia's bird table too?

 

Here are some more great bird feeders too. There are definitely going to be some very happy birds around when they see these.

 

And even the squirrels are enjoying the extra food too.

Here is your maths activity for today.

For this week’s minute maths, I would like you to copy the questions onto paper and then work out the answers and write them on your paper. You could make more sheets and time yourself and try and beat your score each time.

This week we are going back to our number bonds, last week we looked at number bonds to 20, this week we are looking at number bonds to 20, so this should be a speed exercise as the questions should be very easy for you to work out. Once you are getting 100% for each column then start to time yourself and have a few goes to see if you can beat your time. What is the quickest time you can get 100% for each column? Can you do it in less than 1 minute for each column? That is your challenge for this week.

As well as doing your minute maths today I would like you to log on and do TTRockstars to practise your times tables and also log on to mathletics to practise your maths skills.

This week’s words are all words that start with a silent letter. That means that we don’t hear the sound of the letter at the start of the word, we hear the sound of the second letter in the word.

Try and find a way to help you remember how to spell each one.

If there are any of this week’s words that you don’t know what they mean then look them up in a dictionary to find the definition.

Write an interesting sentence for each of your spelling words. Try to start your sentences in different ways. Remember to include the correct punctuation including commas, question marks, exclamation marks, capital letters and full stops. Make sure you spell all your words correctly.

Now use your ideas from your word bank in the chart above to write some sentences about the scenes you have watched today.

Here are the word banks from the lesson to help you but you should have also created an excellent word bank of your own too.

Here is your topic activity for today.

As the weather is usually bad at this time of year the birds need some extra help to find food. Today I would like you to have a go at making a bird feeder. I have included three ideas for you to try or you might have an idea of your own.

Make your bird feeder and then write a set of instructions to explain how you made it.

Take photos of you making it and of the finished product. It would be amazing if you could put it in your garden and take a picture of a bird feeding from it – That’s your challenge!

 

Have fun – the birds will be very thankful.

Tuesday 2nd February 2021

Good morning Year 5. I enjoyed reading the information from your bird surveys yesterday. Some of you spotted some beautiful birds.

 

 

Here is you maths activity for today.

Today we are going to learn more about mixed numbers and improper fractions.

First of all watch this video to help you with today's lesson.

You will need your plans from yesterday to help you add as much detail to your writing as possible.

Click on the link to watch today’s lesson. Stop and do the activities as you go along.

https://classroom.thenational.academy/lessons/to-write-the-second-part-of-the-opening-6cv62d?activity=video&step=1

I have included the plans from the lesson to help you with your writing today.

I would like you to write your own version of the opening of the story, based on the work form today’s video lesson. You can use the ideas from the lesson and all the ideas from your own plan so far.

Write in paragraphs.

Make sure you look at and follow the success criteria for today’s lesson.

Think about challenging your vocabulary choices. Include complex sentences with commas to show your clauses.

Here is your topic activity for this afternoon.

Today we are going to read some information about garden birds and answer questions about what we have read. Once you have read the text, have a go at answering the questions. 

Monday 1st February 2021

Good morning Year 5. 

I hope you all had a nice relaxing weekend and are ready to get back to some hard work this week.

Did you manage to get out in the garden to do your bird spotting challenge? You will need that information for your topic lesson this afternoon.

 

Here is your maths activity for today.

This week we are continuing to work on fractions and today we are going to look at changing improper fractions to mixed numbers.

Improper fractions are where the numerator is bigger than the denominator.

A mixed number has a whole number and a fraction.

Watch this video to explain further.

Now complete the chart for each section of the clip in the film.

Think about the work you did in the lesson on show not tell.

Think carefully about your vocabulary choices.

You can go back and watch the video lesson as many times as you need to.

You can use some of the ideas from the lesson to add to your chart but I would also like you to add your own ideas and vocabulary.

I bet you can think of some really good ideas to add to your chart.

 

Description of the action

(verbs and adverbs)

Show not tell of the boy’s emotions

 You will need this chart for your lesson tomorrow as well.

The more information you add today, the easier you will find the lesson tomorrow.

I have included the completed charts from the lesson to help you but I am sure you can think of some great ideas of your own.

 

Here is your Topic activity for today.

 

Over the weekend the Big Schools Birdwatch was launched and it runs through to the end of February.

This week we are going to be doing lots of activities about the project.

Over the weekend I asked you to do a survey to identify birds that you saw and to count how many of each bird you saw. 

I have included another bird identification sheet for you to do today if you didn’t have time to do it over the weekend.

Once you have your information I would like you to create a chart to show your findings. I want to know which birds you saw and how many of each bird you saw.

Have a look at the graph I have included.

You could have a go at making one like this.  

Once you have made your chart I would like you to answer the following questions:

Which bird was the most common?

Which bird was the least common?

How many birds did you see altogether?

Are there any birds that you saw the same number of?

What is the difference between the most and least number of birds you saw?

 

Now use the information you have gathered and write a paragraph to explain what you have found out about the birds that you saw.

Tell me about which birds you saw were there any birds that you didn’t see? How many of each bird did you see and where were you when you saw them? Write about any other observations you made?

Which was your favourite bird that you saw and why?

What do they look like?

Write as much information as you can about the birds in your survey.

Friday 29th January 2021

Good morning Year 5.

Well done for all the hard work you have done this week. You have done a great job. laughyes

 

Here is your maths activity for today.

For this week’s minute maths, I would like you to copy the questions onto paper and then work out the answers and write them on your paper. You could make more sheets and time yourself and try and beat your score each time.

This week we are going back to our number bonds to 20 so this should be a speed exercise as the questions should be very easy for you to work out. Once you are getting 100% for each column then start to time yourself and have a few goes to see if you can beat your time. What is the quickest time you can get 100% for each column? Can you do it in less than 1 minute for each column? That is your challenge for this week.

As well as doing your minute maths today I would like you to log on and do TTRockstars to practise your times tables and also log on to mathletics to practise your maths skills.

There are two other things I would like you to look at this week.

The first one is from BBC Bitesize ‘Guardians – Defenders of Mathematica’

Click on the link below to get to the game.

https://www.bbc.co.uk/games/embed/guardians-mathematica?exitGameUrl=https%3A%2F%2Fbbc.com%2Fbitesize%2Farticles%2Fzn2y7nb

Make sure you can see this screen.

 

 

Click the play button to play the game to practise your times tables.

 

 

The second thing I would like you to look at is from the magician Dazzling Darren.

Click on the link below. This will take you to the Dazzling Darren page. He will be doing a maths lesson and showing you some magic tricks at the same time.

 

 The lesson will be live at 2.30pm and lasts for 30 minutes.

Here are your spellings for next week.

Here is your English activity for today.

Today is Guided reading and we are reading Chapter 7 - The Wild Thing

 

Go to the school videos section on the website and watch the video of me reading this chapter first.

Now have a go at reading the text for yourself before you answer the questions. You will need to keep going back to the text to find the answers.

 

  • Where it says find and copy – make sure that you copy the exact words from the text do not write it in your own words.
  • Please write your answers in full sentences with the correct punctuation.
  • There are 12 questions today so make sure that you scroll down and answer them all carefully.

 

       1. Define the word ‘triumphant’.

    2. Define the word ‘hollering’.​​​​​​​

    3. What does it mean if you ‘thrash’ someone?​​​​​​​

    4. Find evidence that suggests Joseph has been there for a long time.​​​​​​​

    5. What do you think that Joseph believes that this place is the ‘whole             world’?​​​​​​​

    6. Why do you think the school master beat Jim so many times?​​​​​​​

    7. Do you think the schoolmaster beating Jim had an impact on Jim’s               dream to run away? Explain your answer.​​​​​​​

    8. Predict whether Tip will escape with Jim.​​​​​​​

    9. Why do you think the author called this Chapter ‘The Wild Thing’?​​​​​​​

   10. What does this place not have that the outside world does, according            to Jim?​​​​​​​

    11. What did the schoolmaster do after he was finished with Jim?​​​​​                         12. Summarise this chapter in one sentence.

Here is your Topic activity for this afternoon.

Click on the tab below to watch Newsround to find out what has been going on in the news this week.

https://www.bbc.co.uk/newsround

Every Friday I would like you to write a diary or some form of report on or record events that have happened in the news throughout the week. It is a good idea to watch Newsround every day and make notes that you could then use to help you on the Friday. I would like you to write about what has been happening about the Corona Virus Pandemic each week, as well as other interesting news events from the week.

You can also write about your own feelings in a personal diary too. This is a good idea to help you to cope with things at the moment because it is very different for all of us. In years to come, children will be learning about this pandemic in their history lessons.

 

This week I would also like you to look at the bird identification sheets  below.

 

This weekend is the launch of the RSPB Big Schools' Birdwatch.

I will tell you more about it in the zoom lesson today.

Look at the bird identification sheets. This weekend, have a look in your garden to see if you can spot any of the birds on the list.

 

Make your own tally chart to show the names of the birds that you see and how many of each bird you see.

You might see birds that aren't on the identification sheets so you can add them to your tally chart.

 

Keep this information safe as we will be doing some work on it next week.

You can sign up to the Big Schools' Birdwatch project for free to get more information.

Here is your Music activity for today.

This week I would like you to listen again to the song Matchstalk men and Matchstalk cats and dogs by Brian Burke and Michael Coleman.  The song was written about LS Lowry and his art work.

Click on the link to hear the song.

 https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=kmopSVOMSsU

I have put the lyrics to the song on a separate document. The words are also on the video. I would like you to sing and continue to learn the song from last week. It would be lovely to sing it all together when we get back to school.

You will notice at the end of the song the children have been split into two groups and are singing two different parts, this is called singing in a round.

He painted Salford's smokey tops
On cardboard boxes from the shops
And parts of ancoats where I used to play
I'm sure he once walked down our street
'Cause he painted kids who had nowt on their feet
The clothes we wore had all seen better days

Now they said his works of art were dull
No room all round, the walls are full
But Lowry didn't care much anyway
They said he just paints cats and dogs
And matchstalk men in boots and clogs
And Lowry said that's just the way they'll stay

And he painted matchstalk men and matchstalk cats and dogs
He painted kids on the corner of the street that were sparking clogs
Now he takes his brush and he waits
Outside them factory gates
To paint his matchstalk men and matchstalk cats and dogs

Now canvas and brushes were wearing thin
When London started calling him
To come on down and wear the old flat cap
They said tell us all about your ways
And all about them Salford days
Is it true you're just an ordinary chap?

And he painted matchstalk men and matchstalk cats and dogs
He painted kids on the corner of the street that were sparking clogs
Now he takes his brush and he waits
Outside them factory gates
To paint his matchstalk men and matchstalk cats and dogs

Now Lowry's hang upon the wall
Beside the greatest of them all
And even the Mona Lisa takes a bow
This tired old man with hair like snow
Told northern folk it's time to go
The fever came and the good lord mopped his brow

And he left us matchstalk men and matchstalk cats and dogs
He left us kids on the corner of the street that were sparking clogs
Now he takes his brush and he waits
Outside them pearly gates
To paint his matchstalk men and matchstalk cats and dogs

And he left us matchstalk men and matchstalk cats and dogs
He left us kids on the corner of the street that were sparking clogs
Now he takes his brush and he waits
Outside them pearly gates
To paint his matchstalk men and matchstalk cats and dogs

And he left us matchstalk men and matchstalk cats and dogs
He left us kids on the corner of the street that were sparking clogs
Now he takes his brush and he waits
Outside them pearly gates
To paint his matchstalk men and matchstalk cats and dogs

And he left us matchstalk men and matchstalk cats and dogs
He left us kids on the corner of the street that were sparking clogs
Now he takes his brush and he waits
Outside them pearly gates
To paint his matchstalk men and matchstalk cats and dogs

Good morning Year 5.

I hope you had a nice relaxing weekend and are ready for a new week. You are doing a great job with your zoom lessons and work on Google Classroom, keep up the good work. laughyes

 

Here is your maths activity for today.

For those of you that missed the Dazzling Darren lesson on Youtube at 2:30pm on Friday, here is the link for you to watch it today.

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=foBQ5BEp8Ok

 

This week we are going to be learning about fractions.

What is a fraction?

Click on the link and watch the video clip which introduces fractions.

https://vimeo.com/498327271

For question number 2 – you can either draw the shapes and colour the fractions, or you can tell me how many sections you will colour in for each shape.

For question 3 – type the correct fraction and explain what a unit fraction is.

For question 4a) write the letter of the shapes that show one third shaded.

For questions 4b) write the sentences filling in the missing words.

 

Here is your English activity for today.

Click on the link to watch today’s English lesson. Today you are going to learn three new words that you can use in your writing about Oliver Twist. Once you have watched the lesson then complete the activity below. There are 5 questions to complete.

https://classroom.thenational.academy/lessons/to-develop-a-rich-understanding-of-words-associated-with-meals-6mw68d?activity=video&step=1

 

The three new words that we learned today were: meagre, bland and nauseating.

 

     1. Write a definition of each of these words. I would like you to explain          them using your own words, you can use a dictionary to help you but then use your own words to explain it.

 

    2. Write one sentence for each of the three words we have learned               today.    ( So three sentences in total). Try to start your sentences in         an interesting way. Make sure you have punctuated your sentences               correctly. Have you used capital letters correctly?

 

    3. Now have a go at writing a complex sentence that includes all three             words. Again, check your punctuation, make sure you start with a               capital  letter and end with a full stop. Have you put the commas in the right places?

 

(A complex sentence is a sentence that has a main clause and then a subordinate clause to give more information about your main clause. Remember you need a comma between your main clause and your subordinate clause. The main clause can be at the beginning or the end of your sentence.)

 

     4. Complete each of these sentences. Think of interesting vocabulary you          could use. Make sure your punctuation is correct. You might want to             write  more than one word in each blank space. Write your sentence             underneath each one. Add as much vocabulary as you can to make your sentence as interesting as possible.

 

As Oliver ______, he _______.

 

The smell of the gruel, which was ________ , drifted ____________ .

 

Stomach churning, _________________

 

5. Now have a go at writing your own sentences about Oliver and the boys eating their gruel in the Workhouse.

Make sure your punctuation is correct. Read and check all your sentences before you turn your work in.

 

Here is your topic activity for today

Have a look at the chart below.

 

The chart shows how Salford Quays has been developed over the years since 1894 but all the information is in the wrong order.

 

 I would like you to write the information in the correct chronological order. Start with 1894 and end with 2002.

Each date can have a new paragraph and bullet point or you can make a chart and have the date on the left and the information on the right.

Think about how you would like to present it as long as it is clear and in chronological order.

Friday 22nd January 2021

Good morning Year 5, well nearly another week over. Well done for all your hard work that you have done so far. You are doing a great job!

Here is your maths activity for today.

For this week’s minute maths, I would like you to copy the questions onto paper and then work out the answers and write them on your paper. You could make more sheets and time yourself and try and beat your score each time.

This week you are rounding each of the numbers to the nearest 1000. Remember you need to look at the number in the 100’s column. Remember the rule if the digit is 5 or more then you round the thousands column to the next thousand. If the digit in the hundred’s column is less than 5 then the thousand’s column stays the same. For example the first question is 2141.

Look at the digit in the hundred’s column, it is 1 this is less than 5 so the thousand’s column stays the same. So 2141 rounded to the nearest thousand is 2000.  2141 on a number line is nearer to 2000 than 3000.

The second question is 3986. Look at the hundreds column, 9 is more than 5 so we need to round the thousand’s column up to 4. So 3986 rounded to the nearest thousand is 4000.

Follow the same method for all these questions.

As well as doing your minute maths today I would like you to log on and do TTRockstars to practise your times tables and also log on to mathletics to practise your maths skills.

 

There are two other things I would like you to look at this week.

The first one is from BBC Bitesize ‘Guardians – Defenders of Mathematica’

Click on the link below to get to the game.

https://www.bbc.co.uk/games/embed/guardians-mathematica?exitGameUrl=https%3A%2F%2Fbbc.com%2Fbitesize%2Farticles%2Fzn2y7nb

 

Make sure you can see this screen.

 

Once you have the right screen up then click the play button to play the game to practise your times tables.

 

The second thing I would like you to look at is from the magician Dazzling Darren.

Click on the link below. This will take you to the Dazzling Darren page. He will be doing a maths lesson and showing you some magic tricks at the same time.

 The lesson will be live at 2.30pm and lasts for 30 minutes.

 

https://www.dazzlingdarren.co.uk/maths/

 

The show is streamed on YouTube on the Dazzling Darren YouTube Channel.

Here is a link to the PDF you can print out if you want to have a go at doing the trick yourself.

https://www.dazzlingdarren.co.uk/wp-content/uploads/2021/01/Magical-Maths-Week-1.pdf

 

 

Here are your spellings for next week.

These words are all adverbs of time (termporal adverbs) these are words to develop chronology in writing.

Try and find a way to help you remember how to spell each one.

If there are any of this week’s words that you don’t know what they mean then look them up in a dictionary to find the definition.

Write an interesting sentence for each of your spelling words. Try to start your sentences in different ways. Remember to include the correct punctuation including commas, question marks, exclamation marks, capital letters and full stops. Make sure you spell all your words correctly.

Can you start any of your sentences with an adverb?

Here is your music lesson for today.

There is a very famous song that was written years ago about LS Lowry and his work. It is called Matchstalk men and matchstalk cats and dogs.  It was written and sung by Brian Burke and Michael Coleman. They also had some local children singing on the track.

Click on the link to hear the song.

 

 https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=kmopSVOMSsU

 

 I would like you to have a go at singing and learning the song. It would be lovely to sing it all together when we get back to school.

You will notice at the end of the song the children have been split into two groups and are singing two different parts, this is called singing in a round.

He painted Salford's smokey tops
On cardboard boxes from the shops
And parts of ancoats where I used to play
I'm sure he once walked down our street
'Cause he painted kids who had nowt on their feet
The clothes we wore had all seen better days

Now they said his works of art were dull
No room all round, the walls are full
But Lowry didn't care much anyway
They said he just paints cats and dogs
And matchstalk men in boots and clogs
And Lowry said that's just the way they'll stay

And he painted matchstalk men and matchstalk cats and dogs
He painted kids on the corner of the street that were sparking clogs
Now he takes his brush and he waits
Outside them factory gates
To paint his matchstalk men and matchstalk cats and dogs

Now canvas and brushes were wearing thin
When London started calling him
To come on down and wear the old flat cap
They said tell us all about your ways
And all about them Salford days
Is it true you're just an ordinary chap?

And he painted matchstalk men and matchstalk cats and dogs
He painted kids on the corner of the street that were sparking clogs
Now he takes his brush and he waits
Outside them factory gates
To paint his matchstalk men and matchstalk cats and dogs

Now Lowry's hang upon the wall
Beside the greatest of them all
And even the Mona Lisa takes a bow
This tired old man with hair like snow
Told northern folk it's time to go
The fever came and the good lord mopped his brow

And he left us matchstalk men and matchstalk cats and dogs
He left us kids on the corner of the street that were sparking clogs
Now he takes his brush and he waits
Outside them pearly gates
To paint his matchstalk men and matchstalk cats and dogs

And he left us matchstalk men and matchstalk cats and dogs
He left us kids on the corner of the street that were sparking clogs
Now he takes his brush and he waits
Outside them pearly gates
To paint his matchstalk men and matchstalk cats and dogs

And he left us matchstalk men and matchstalk cats and dogs
He left us kids on the corner of the street that were sparking clogs
Now he takes his brush and he waits
Outside them pearly gates
To paint his matchstalk men and matchstalk cats and dogs

And he left us matchstalk men and matchstalk cats and dogs
He left us kids on the corner of the street that were sparking clogs
Now he takes his brush and he waits
Outside them pearly gates
To paint his matchstalk men and matchstalk cats and dogs

 

Wednesday 20th January 2021

Good morning Year 5. Great to see so many of you on our zoom lesson again yesterday.

Well done for all the work you are doing so far.

 

Here is your maths activity for today.

Today we are going to be comparing and ordering numbers.

Watch the video. This will help you with your maths questions for today.

Click on the link below.

 

https://vimeo.com/454736010

 

Once you have watched the video, have a go at answering the questions below.

Here is your English activity for today.

Watch this video lesson about a clip from the film Oliver Twist.

 

https://classroom.thenational.academy/lessons/to-analyse-a-film-clip-and-generate-vocabulary-6nh3gr?activity=video&step=1

 

Now you have done the activities on the lesson, I would like you to write some more sentences like the ones you did in the lesson.

 I would like you to also write the sentences you did in the lesson too. You can go back and watch the video again if you need to.

Remember to edit and improve your writing just like you would in school. Check your punctuation, are your capital letters and full stops in the right places. Have you included commas in between your adjectives and to show your clauses?

Start your sentences in interesting ways. Think carefully about your vocabulary choices. Make your sentences as interesting as possible.

 

Here is your Science activity for today.

This week in science we are going to be looking at gears. A gear is a wheel that has teeth. The teeth are used to turn other gears.

A big gear will make a smaller gear turn faster so a small force can have a bigger effect.

Watch the video clip about gears.

 

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=BKjo8Usp21k

 

Now have a go at answering the questions that are on the two sheets. (I'm really sorry that the quality of the pictures is not very good - do the best you can!)

 

1. Look at the pictures and write either clockwise or anticlockwise to say which direction the last gear is turning. The first one has been done for you.

 

2. Copy the paragraph and write in the correct word.  Underline the word you have added.

 

3. Write the correct answer.

 

4. Write the name of the objects that use gears.

 

5c)  Write the sentence and fill in the missing word.

 

Have a go at the challenge, some of you might have Lego that has gears. You can take a picture of what you make and  email it to me.

 

Tuesday 19th January 2021

Good morning Year 5. I hope you are all ok and coping well with all your work.

 

Here is your maths activity for today.

Today we are still working on place value and we are going to be concentrating on numbers up to 10,000.

Watch the video below, this will help you with your questions today.

https://vimeo.com/452570425

Now have a go at answering the questions.

 

Here is your English activity for today

Today we are going to do some grammar activities.

Watch this video clip about exploring word class. Identifying what each of the different words are within the sentence.

https://classroom.thenational.academy/lessons/to-explore-word-class-68tkjc

Now have a look at the sentences below. Copy them out and highlight the nouns in blue, the adverbs in purple, the verbs in green, the adjectives in pink and prepositions in grey.

 

  1. Desperate to eat and fighting through hunger, they waited patiently with their hands clasped together on their knees.
  2. Bellowing, the master, who was stood beside the cook, said hid prayers to the prison like hall of children.
  3. Starving, the emaciated boys waited in line with their tummies rumbling like an earthquake.
  4.  

Now think back to the work on clauses.

Remember that a main clause has a subject and a verb and it makes sense on its own.

A subordinate clause gives extra information but it doesn’t make sense on its own.

 

For example: Hilary told Alex that she couldn’t come.

The main clause is’ Hilary told Alex’

The subordinate clause is ‘that she couldn’t come.’

 

For each of these sentences, highlight the main clause in blue and the subordinate clause in pink.

 

  1. Darius went to the shop because he needed some milk.
  2. Provided that it doesn’t start to rain, they’ll play outside.
  3. Unless you know the answer, we’ll ask Richard.
  4. They climbed the tree even though I thought it was a bad idea.

 

Add a word from the box and your own clause to complete the sentence below.

Only use each word from the box once.

 

When       after      although     until     before

 

 
  1. We need to wait...
  2. Eleanor has a shower ....
  3. Doris wants to get a dog....
  4. Sophie eats her breakfast.....

Topic activity.

For your topic lesson today I would like you to finish your brochure about Salford Quays and it's amenities.

 

I would like you to design and make a brochure for tourists promoting all the things that Salford Quays has to offer.

I would like you to do this over several pages.

 

Include as much information as you can. Check and edit your work, make it look as appealing as possible, the aim is to attract people to come and visit Salford Quays.

Here is your RE activity for today.

 

Thinking about Jesus as a teacher, today I would like you to start by watching the clip below, it is the story of The Good Samaritan.

It is one of Jesus’ famous stories from the bible.

 

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=aSfm2xdKau4

 

Now I would like you to think about and reflect on the following questions.

Why did Jesus tell this story?
What did Jesus want people to learn from this story?
Does the story have more than one message? Why?
What behaviour does this story challenge?
If you acted on the message of this story what might you do differently in the future?

What does this story teach about God? What does this story teach us about how to live our lives?

 

Now have a go at answering the questions.  There are 10 questions.

 

  1. Why do you think that Jesus told this story to the people?

    2. What was the important lesson that Jesus wanted the people to learn from               this story?

    3. Does the story have more than one message? Why?

    4. What behaviour does this story challenge?

    5. If you acted on the message of this story, what might you do differently in               the future?

    6. What does this story teach us about God?

    7. What does this story teach us about how we should live our lives?

    8. Can you think of a time when you have been like the priest and the Levi and                just walked on by or ignored a situation when you knew you could have helped?         Tell me about your experience, what happened and what did you do? – How did           it make you feel? Did you realise the consequences of your actions at the time?

    9. Now can you think of a time when you have behaved like the Good Samaritan,            who did you help and how did you help them? How did you feel? Did you realise          the importance of your act of kindness?

    10.How could you now live your life differently to be more like the Good                        Samaritan?

 

 

Now have a look at this clip of The Sower.  It is the first story on the clip. It is another of Jesus’ stories. Once you have watched the story I would like you to think and reflect - which kind of person are you?

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=2nhuf9jKQMU

Here is another popular story called the Wise and Foolish builders for you to watch.

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=VP_nFKK8rIY

 

And finally watch this short story about the Lost Sheep. These stories remind us that God loves us and looks out for us even in times of hardship.

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=azTzzZWK1sk

For number 4, you will need to tell me how many of each block you would need for example, 5 thousand blocks, 2 hundred blocks, 4 ten sticks and 5 one cubes.

For number 6a, tell me how many thousand blocks, hundred blocks, ten sticks and one cubes you would need.

For 6b tell me which counters you will need and how many of each counter.

Here is your English activity

Watch this video lesson about the book Oliver Twist. The book was written by the author Charles Dickens who was an author in the Victorian era.

 

https://classroom.thenational.academy/lessons/to-understand-the-historical-context-of-oliver-twist-75jkgd

You are going to produce a mind map to show all the information you have learned in this lesson about Oliver Twist.

If you prefer you can write your answers using bullet points but please write in full sentences. 

Over the next few lessons we will be doing some writing about the story of Oliver Twist.

 

Here is your Topic for today and tomorrow.

Today we are continuing with our topic of Locks and Quays. We are going to focus on Salford Quays.

Good morning Year 5. I hope you have enjoyed your work this week and I hope you are enjoying our Guided reading story. Final day before the well deserved weekend. laughyes

Well done for all your hard work so far!

 

Here is your maths activity for today.

Today is minute maths day. Have a look at these questions, today all the questions are about rounding to the nearest 100. 

For this week’s minute maths, I would like you to copy the questions onto paper and then work out the answers and write them on your paper.

You could make more sheets and time yourself and try and beat your score each time. This week you are rounding each of the numbers to the nearest 100.

Remember you need to look at the number in the 10’s column.

Remember the rule if the digit is 5 or more then you round the hundreds column to the next hundred.

If the digit in the ten’s column is less than 5 then the hundred’s column stays the same. For example the first question is 281.

8 is in the ten’s column. 8 is more than 5 so we need to round the hundred’s column up to 300.

For the 3rd question 823.   2 is in the ten’s column. 2 is less than 5 so the hundred’s column stays the same. 823 rounded to the nearest 100 is 800.

Follow the same method for all these questions.

 

Today I would also like you to log on to Mathletics and also to TT Rockstars to practise your times tables.

Here is your English activity for today.

First of all, here is your new spelling list.

This week’s words all have the suffix - able

Try and find a way to help you remember how to spell each one.

If there are any of this week’s words that you don’t know what they mean then look them up in a dictionary to find the definition.

Write an interesting sentence for each of your spelling words. Try to start your sentences in different ways. Remember to include the correct punctuation including commas, question marks, exclamation marks, capital letters and full stops. Make sure you spell all your words correctly.

Learn these words throughout the week. I have also put them onto Spelling shed for you. I will test you on these spellings in our zoom session next Friday.

Good morning Year 5.

Well done for all the work you have been doing so far, great job, keep it up!

So lovely to see so many of you on the zoom lessons every day too. Fingers crossed my computer is working ok today - yesterday was a disaster for me, my laptop kept freezing but luckily it worked ok for our zoom! laughyes

 

Here is your Maths work for today.

Watch the video about interpreting data. Today we are learning about line graphs.

https://vimeo.com/464199475

Now have a go at answering the questions. 

Watch the video about interpreting data.

Now have a go at answering the questions. 

Here is your English activity

I had serious problems with my laptop yesterday so the work I had prepared for you I could not open and download so instead, I would like you to go to the school videos section on the school website and watch the video of me reading the first chapter of street child. You should have already seen that last week. Sorry I am unable to get copies of the pages for you to read today. You may need to watch the video several times and pause it in places to make some notes.

 

Today you are going to imagine that you are Jim Jarvis.

You are going to write about the events that happened in Chapter 1

• Try to include lots of interesting sentence openers, start your sentences in different ways.

• Use the information from Chapter 1.

• Remember you will need to write in past tense and in first person using the pronoun ‘I’.

• Features of a diary that you will need to include:

Informal chatty language Chronological order – writing about things in the order that they happened.

Order thoughts and feeling Personal pronouns – use I because you are imagining that you are Jim.

Structure your writing into paragraphs.

Include time connectives like next, after that, before etc. to order events.

• Here is an example of how you could start your diary:

Monday 15th January 1866 Today began with a visit to Mrs Hodder’s pie shop. Cold, snowy and bitter, the day had already made my feet blue. The smell of rich gravy made my stomach flip and I danced up and down in excitement. A pie! Finally, something nourishing and delicious. Exchanging our last shilling for the pie made me feel felt both excited and anxious – when would we meet again? Quickly, I darted through the alleys, the pie tucked safely against my chest, like treasure…

Use these notes to help you remember the events you can write about in your diary.

 

Woke up feeling excited

• Shilling

• Dashed through streets to Mrs Hodder’s shop

• Feet blue with cold

• Rich smell of hot gravy

• Ran home, pie clutched to chest

• Heart thumping

• Spread pie out in front of fire

• Lizzie

• Ma unwell, very frail and ill

• What was the matter with her?

• Afterwards, curled up

• Worried, anxious

REMEMBER TO PUT CAPITAL I WHEN YOU USE THE PRONOUN I.

 

Follow all the features that you did when you were writing the diary of Maggie Johnson. Some of you did a great job with that and I really enjoyed reading them.

Here is your Science activity

 

Watch the clip below. It is a song that tells you about simple machines that we use to make difficult jobs much easier. Some of these inventions go back thousands of years.

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=iQu3GY509ZM

Now watch this clip which explains the simple machines in more detail. After you have watched the clip, have a search around your home, what things can you find that have any of these simple machines, have a look at how they work. Make a list of them.

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=LSfNYpCprw4

Now watch this clip which explains the simple machines in much more detail.

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=jtk2V0M6k3M

Now have a look at the science sheets underneath. Sorry the quality is so poor but it is the best I could do.

For question 1 write the answer A, B or C

For question 2, write each sentence out including the correct word, please underline the word you have added to the sentence.

For question 3, you can’t draw on the sheet, so just tell me what direction you would draw the arrow for example, pointing up or pointing down. Then say whether it would produce a small or a large force.

For question 4 write the names of the objects that are examples of levers.

For question 5 write which direction you would draw the arrow, again pushing up or pushing down.

For question 6 write either A, B or C and then explain your answer in full sentences.

You can also do the investigation section.

Make your own lever using a short ruler (as the pole) and a pen (as the pivot). Try lifting a pencil case or something similar in size and weight using different lengths of the ruler. Is it easier to lift using the short end of the lever or the long end? Can you think of any examples of levers that you have used today?

You could take a picture of you doing your experiment and email it to me.

 

Tuesday 12th January 2021

Good morning Year 5. I hope you are all ok.

As well as Maths, English and Topic lessons today, you also have an RE lesson to complete.

 

Today's maths lesson.

Watch the video clip explaining more about interpreting data.

https://vimeo.com/462718768

Now have a go at answering these questions.

Make sure you number the questions correctly, for example number 1 has sections a -d

Once you have completed your maths today, click on the link below. Scroll right down to the bottom of the page to the game, Guardians: Defenders of Mathematica to play a game to practise your skills on statistics. - select swamp statistics. I will show you how to play this in our zoom lesson this afternoon. Have fun!

https://www.bbc.co.uk/bitesize/articles/znv3n9q

If you weren't on our zoom lesson today then have a go at the quiz and watch the lesson below that first before you have a go at playing the game.

 

 

 

 

 

Here is your English activity for today.

 

  • Watch the clip about Maggie Johnson – Upstairs, Downstairs.
  • https://www.literacyshed.com/upstairsdownstairs.html
  • Maggie is a young Victorian girl who gets a job as a housemaid in a big Victorian Manor house. This is the same job that Jim Jarvis’ sisters did in Street Child.
  • Imagine you are Maggie Johnson; I would like you to write a diary explaining the events that took place. Remember to include Maggie’s thoughts and feelings as well as the things that she has been doing throughout the day. Remember to write in past tense because you are writing about things that have already happened. You might want to watch parts of the video a few times to make sure that you include all the detail. You will need to write in paragraphs. Every time you start to write about a new topic, you need to start a new paragraph. Try to really imagine what it would have felt like to be Maggie and to do the job of a housemaid.
  • Features of a diary that you will need to include:

Informal chatty language

Chronological order – writing about things in the order that they happened.

Order thoughts and feeling

Personal pronouns – use I because you are imagining that you are Maggie.

Structure your writing into paragraphs.

Include time connectives like next, after that, before lunch, after dinner etc. to order events.

Edit and improve your work like you would if you were in school.

 

Today's topic lesson

Monday 11th January

Good morning Year 5, I hope you managed to have a good weekend. Are you ready for this weeks online learning? I hope so!

Tomorrow it is my birthday, so if you have any spare time today, you could design and make me a birthday card and then show it to me on the zoom lesson tomorrow! laughyesheart

 

Maths activity.

In maths this week are starting to look at a new topic.

Statistics.

First of all I would like you to watch the video explaining about how to interpret charts.

https://vimeo.com/462717846

 

Now have a go at answering the questions. I'm sorry the text is so small but hopefully you can just about manage to read it. crying

English activity.

 

  • Watch the link about expanded noun phrases. https://www.bbc.co.uk/bitesize/articles/znpbgwx
  • Now read Extract 1 again, we looked at this last week.
  • Find these words in the text: horses, street and floor. What part of speech are they? What do we call this family of words?
  • Look at the phrases that these words are in: ‘ the swaying horses’, ‘the dark street’, the soggy floor’. These are called expanded noun phrases, they give us more information about the noun.
  • Find and copy more expanded noun phrases from the text.
  • Can you think of other adjectives that can expand each phrase further? Rewrite the expanded noun phrase and add another adjective to expand the phrase further. For example: ‘the nervous swaying horses.’
  • Look again at extract 1. Imagine that you are Jim Jarvis. Rewrite the first paragraph in first person. You are Jim so you are going to use the pronoun ‘I’
  • Make sure you include the correct punctuation and spelling.
  • Remember to edit and improve your work as you are going along just the same as we would if you were in school.
  • Only turn your work in when you are 100% happy that it is the best it can be.

Topic activity

First of all I would like you to watch this video about LS Lowry and his work.

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=8LMM5LdOVWQ

 

Today I would like you to produce an information fact file about LS Lowry. 

I would like you to include a front cover and your could include a picture of Lowry or one/some of his paintings.

First if all you will need to introduce introduce LS Lowry.

Then I would like you to include as much information as you can about LS Lowry. Make it look as interesting as possible, include pictures. 

I do not expect this to be finished today. I would like you to continue with it tomorrow afternoon.

Be adventurous with the work you produce. You will need to do your own research about LS Lowry. You can also use the information on the slideshow that we looked at last week.(You can scroll down this page too find it). 

Google Lowry to see what else you can find out about him, don’t just use the information from the powerpoint I have included.

Friday 8th January 2021

Good morning Year 5. How are you all today? I hope you are well. Did you enjoy the snow yesterday, let's see how much we get today.

 

Here are your spellings for next week. This time there is no common letter string or pattern, these are challenge words. They all have some form of tricky element to them, whether it’s a double letter or a tricky sound, so be careful. Try and find a way to help you remember how to spell each one.

If there are any of this week’s words that you don’t know what they mean then look them up in a dictionary to find the definition.

Make your own Look, Cover, Write, Check sheets to practise your spellings. You can also find them on spelling shed as normal.

Write an interesting sentence for each of your spelling words. Try to start your sentences in different ways. Remember to include the correct punctuation including commas, question marks, exclamation marks, capital letters and full stops. Make sure you spell all your words correctly.

Here is a word search. See if you can find all your spelling words from this week’s list. You could have a go at making your own word search using this week’s spelling

words.

 

 

English activity.

Re read the pages from the story so far. Scroll down the page to find them. Think about the main character Jim Jarvis. What do we definitely know about him from what it tells us in the text? Make a list of all the things that the book tells us about him - the things that we definitely know. Add these to the correct part of the chart.

Now think about things that we can infer about Jim - what do we not know for definite but we can work out from what the author has said? What are the clues in the text that make us think that about Jim? Make a list and add them to the correct place on the chart.

Things that the author tells us about Jim Jarvis.

Things that we can infer about Jim Jarvis (work out) from the text.


 

 

Now use the information you have got to write a detailed character description about Jim Jarvis. Try to include interesting vocabulary; you can magpie vocabulary from the text as well as thinking of your own. Start your sentences in different ways. Include adjectives and adverbs. See if you can include any alliteration and similes.

Maths activity

For this week’s minute maths, I would like you to copy the questions onto paper and then work out the answers and write them on your paper. You could make more sheets and time yourself and try and beat your score each time.

To find half of a number you need to divide it by 2

To find a quarter of a number you need to divide it by 4

To find a third of a number you need to divide it by 3

To find a tenth of a number you need to divide it by 10.

Can you see the pattern? You divide the number by the denominator. (The number at the bottom of the fraction)

 

Once you have done this activity I would like you to log on to mathletics to practise your maths skills and also TT Rockstars to practise your times tables.

 

Topic activity

 

Click on the tab below to watch Newsround to find out what has been going on in the news this week.

https://www.bbc.co.uk/newsround

Every Friday I would like you to write a diary or some form of report on or record events that have happened in the news throughout the week. It is a good idea to watch Newsround every day and make notes that you could then use to help you on the Friday. I would like you to write about what has been happening about the Corona Virus Pandemic each week.

You can also write about your own feelings in a personal diary too. This is a good idea to help you to cope with things at the moment because it is very different for all of us. In years to come, children will be learning about this pandemic in their history lessons.

Maths activity

Today we are going to be concentrating on chunking for division again but today we are using much bigger numbers. I would like you to use the chunking method to work out these division questions. Remember the first thing you do is to create your cheat box. Look at the questions, you might need to have bigger numbers in your cheat boxes for these questions. Check the answers in your cheat box to make sure that you have calculated them correctly. Check your subtractions to make sure you haven't made any mistakes. Once you have taken away all your chunks, make sure you add them up correctly. Check your answers before you move on to the next question. 

 

  1. 385 ÷ 11 =
  2. 590 ÷ 6 =
  3. 629 ÷  8 =
  4. 775 ÷ 5 =
  5. 471 ÷ 3 =
  6. 526 ÷ 7 = 
  7. 958 ÷ 9 =
  8. 376 ÷ 4 =
  9. 1758 ÷ 12 =
  10. 1177 ÷ 12 =
  11. 1279 ÷ 8 =
  12. 1424 ÷ 6 =
  13. 1933 ÷ 11 =
  14. 1827 ÷ 8 =
  15. 2076 ÷ 12 =
  16. 1505 ÷ 9 =
  17. Challenge:
  18. How many weeks in 266 days?
  19. Rena earns £1195 in five days. How much does she earn in one day?
  20. Jethro walks at a pace of 4km every hour. At this pace how many hours will it take him to walk the Thames Path, a distance of 294km?
  21. A set of 8 antique chairs costs £ 1560 altogether. How much does each chair cost?

Topic

Look at the Power point about LS Lowry. He is a famous local artist who painted lots of scenes of Salford. Read the information on the power point and answer the questions when you come to them. Extra challenge: Have a go at drawing one of LS Lowry's paintings.

Good morning Year 5.

I hope you are all well.

Today is the day we start our online learning on Zoom and Google Classrooms.

Our Zoom lessons will be every weekday at 1pm - Mr Wright will send out the log in details to parents.

I will be setting English and maths activities every morning on Google Classrooms and in the afternoons on Google classrooms you will find your Topic and other sessions.

If you have any problems and need to get in touch you can send me a private message on Google classrooms or email me clare.hulme@salford.gov.uk

You are all experts at Google Classrooms now so I know you will do a great job.

As well as setting the work on Goggle Classrooms, I will also be posting the work on here each day for those of you that are unable to access Google Classrooms. You should all have your log in details at home, any problems, let me know.

Today's maths task

I would like you to use the chunking method to work out these division questions. Remember the first thing you do is to create your cheat box.

https://www.bbc.co.uk/bitesize/articles/znpbgwx

Now read the extract below. It is taken from our new Guided reading book - Street Child by Berlie Doherty.

 

 

Answer the following questions in full sentences.

  1. Why is Jim excited?

  2. Why does Mrs Hodder order Jim out of the shop?

  3. Why do the boys chase Jim?

  4. Write a list of adjectives from Extract 1. Remember that an adjective describes a noun.

  5. Look at the verbs in the extract, write a  list of verbs. Remember a verb is a doing word. The verbs in this extract create a sense of hurry and excitement in the story.

  6. What does the word prised mean?

  7. Find the line ‘slithered and skidded’, this is an example of alliteration. Can you find and copy any other examples?

  8. What is a simile?  Find and copy some examples from the text.

  9. The author uses words to describe different senses eg. see - glowed yellow, hear - gurgling, smell - hot gravy, touch - warming him through it’s cloth wrapping. Can you find any other examples where the author has used the five senses of touch, taste, smell, sight and hearing?

  10. Write your own sentences which include adjectives, verbs, adverbs (describes a verb) similes and the senses. See if you can link them to the theme of extract. Don’t worry if you can’t, you can make your sentences about any topic. 

Topic session

Click on the link below and watch the video about how locks work. You might need to watch it a few times to take in all the information.

https://www.youtube.com/watch?app=desktop&v=dmZ7hBMTY8Q

Use the information from the video to write a detailed explanation of how locks work. You can watch the video as many times as you need to and stop it in various places whist you write down notes. Then use these notes to write detailed sentences. If you are able to, you can add diagrams and label them to help explain how the locks work. You can do your work on the blank word document I have provided.
