Year 5 Home Learning - Week 2

Hello and welcome back to week 2 of summer 2 home learning.  I hope you are all well and enjoyed the learning last week.  I have read some of the settings you created, Hector's was quite spooky and made me keep the light on the other night at bedtime!  Please keep sending them in.  This week we are moving onto decimals and a unit on diary writing.  I have added more science, RE, spellings and a few extras, including a new story written by JK Rowling.  Also, keep looking at our Twitter feed as I am always putting extra activities on there.  This week has been Cheltenham Science Festival (links on Twitter).  They have a great YouTube channel with fun experiments to watch.


English:  Diary entry.  Lots of tasks over 5 lessons linked to diary writing.

Maths:  We are moving onto decimals this week.  Remember to watch each lesson video link before each lesson worksheet and go through the answers with mum or dad.  Enjoy!

Answers for lesson 4


RE.  What Jesus did to save people? Last week we watched the story of Zacchaeus and you made a gift box. This week I would like you to think about the Bible story, The lost sheep. I have included a PowerPoint of the story, can you also find it in the Bible? What do you think the story tells us? How is the Bible trying to help us? Have you ever been lost? How did it feel? Who is always there for you to help and protect you?

The Lost Sheep

The moral of the parable of the Lost Sheep is that each person is precious to God. Draw a comic strip about the Lost Sheep story for children in Class 1. Share with them the story in words and pictures they will understand.  Get them to think about who is there to protect and help them, God, your parents, your teachers and friends. Send in your work.

Science. Separating materials and mixtures. I would like you to have a go at the Education City unit called Chemistry Cocktail. It is all about separating mixtures in different ways. There is a video and some games then activity sheets to complete.

Topic:  Please continue to work on your DT project Mrs Dodd gave you (designing and making a house flag). Please send me photos of your designs. I'd love to see them. If you would also like some fun, creative work follow the link below. It is full of music, texture treasure hunts, drawing, shadows and beat boxing!


Extra, extra, read all about it!

JK Rowling, do you remember her? Has written another book for children. She wrote it a long time ago for her children, but she hid it in her loft until now. She has begun to publish it for you during lockdown. It is a story called, 'The Ickabog'. It is great, I have been reading it with my children. She is releasing a few chapters at a time on the website. There is also a drawing competition, where you can get your art work in the actual book when the hard copy is published later this year. I'd like to you to read it on your own (or share with your parents) and complete some of the drawing challenges. You can send them off to the publishers and you may get your drawings in her book. AMAZING! All the details and story are on the website,
