Welcome Back Year 5!

HOME LEARNING

WB 22.2.21

(that’s a lot of 2s – not quite a palindrome though)

Lovely to have you all back. Here is your Home Learning for the week beginning 22nd February 2021

You will notice that there is not the same amount of subjects for you this week; this is because we would like you to put a little bit more time into your reading and writing.

Zoom Session this week

Remember there is a daily  Zoom session at 9.30am to set you up for the day. Each day we start with a game and then move onto what your learning will be for that day. Check out Classdojo for the invitation to these. 

In addition to these, there will be 2 drop-in sessions on Monday and Wednesday at 10am (this is the same link as the daily sessions); you can pop in to these if you are needing some help (at these sessions I will speak to one child at a time so you may be kept in the waiting room until I have finished talking to the child before you).

 

Reading

It is really important that you continue to read as much as possible; this can be completed online with Reading Plus (all your accounts have been updated so you have plenty to complete), a home reader (you could video yourself reading and send it to your teacher via ClassDojo – we would love to hear you), or look at some of these great websites which enable you to read e-books for free.

Miss Welsh and Mrs Bader are posting a daily story too – look out for those on Dojo.

You will have noticed last term, we increased the amount of Reading Plus that you have. We would really like you to complete ALL of this every week. Start with a ‘read’ each day and maybe complete a ‘vocab’ too.

Please ensure that you are keeping up with  your home reading book too. Let Miss Welsh and Mrs Bader know which book you are reading and when and for how long you have read for too. It would be lovely if you could video/audio record yourself reading so we can hear you too.

This term, we will be reading Stormbreaker by Anthony Horowitz.  This is a great book that I am sure you will all enjoy.

Welcome to Year 5’s Home Learning for Week Beginning 8th February 2021.

Zoom Session this week

Remember there is a daily  Zoom session at 9.30am to set you up for the day. Each day we start with a game and then move onto what your learning will be for that day. Check out Classdojo for the invitation to these. 

In addition to these, there will be 2 drop-in sessions on Monday and Wednesday at 1pm (this is the same link as the daily sessions); you can pop in to these if you are needing some help (at these sessions I will speak to one child at a time so you may be kept in the waiting room until I have finished talking to the child before you).

Computing – Tuesday 9th February 

Online Safety Day

This week is Online Safety Week (Tuesday 9th February).

Here are some activities that you can do which will help you to understand how to be safe online and also what to do if you don’t feel safe online.

Activity 1: Who am I online?

What do you like to do online, and do you choose to represent youself when you are online? This might be through the profile pictures you choose, the usernames you use, or the characters or avatars you like to use in games and how you choose what these look like…

Activity 2: Free to be me?

You need to decide which scenarios show a positive example of being ‘free to be me’ online, and which scenarios are an unacceptable use of online freedom. Think about the following key questions:

  • How does this scenario make you feel?
  • What made you angry/sad/happy about these scenarios?
  • How do you think each person in the scenario feels?
  • How much freedom does each person have to be themselves in this scenario?
  • Why did each person post/share this?
  • Where did the people in these scenarios get their ideas from about the things they don’t like or disagree with?
  • Does freedom of expression have a limit? What is it?

Activity 3

An online reputation is the impression others make about someone based on their online actions and what information is available about them online. Online identities and the way we express ourselves online can affect how other people see us online. Our online identity can also affect our online reputation.

You are the boss of a large company. You have six applicants for a job and you need to consider these questions when looking at their online reputation. Using the score card, score each applicant on the different qualities.

Family Challenge Day

Wednesday 10th February 2021

This week sees the beginning of a very exciting initiative – Family Challenge Day!  This is an opportunity to down those tablets, consoles or phones and become tech-free for one afternoon.

There are 6 different strands to the activities based on the acronym FAMILY:
  • Flourish – Culture, arts crafts
  • Adventure – Investigate the World
  • Memories – People, Others and Wider Community
  • Inspire – The Future
  • Look – Environment and the Outside
  • Yourself – Self and Identity

As a community, we will all be trying to achieve tech-free for this afternoon and will be attempting to add ticks to our score cards. All the information about this initiative can be found below. Have fun!

TOPIC: Antarctic:

DT 

Focus: I wonder, what Antarctic Explorers would eat?   

Venturing over the Antarctic would be very hard work and explorers would need to fuel themselves with food which is rich in calories and all the vitamins and minerals you need to keep healthy.

Look at this PowerPoint all about what explorers of the Polar Regions would need to fuel themselves and then design or find a recipe that would suit their needs.  Write your recipe out and present it nicely – we could make a Year 5 Polar Explorers Recipe Book! 

Here are some websites which might help you too.

Screenshot of encounteredu.com

Screenshot of www.coolantarctica.com

SCIENCE: Earth and Space

Focus: I wonder, what have I learnt about Earth and Space?

To complete our learning about Earth and space, we would like you to think back to all the learning you have completed over the past 5 weeks. Develop a double page spread of all the information that you have found interesting. Remember to write in paragraphs and use the techniques that we have been learning about in English (parenthesis, relative clauses, subordinate clauses, co-ordinating conjunctions…). You could also think about the features (headings, sub-headings, technical language…) that you used for the non-chronological reports.

Look at some of these examples.

RE: People of God

Focus: I wonder, what is inspiriting about the story of Exodus?

As we come to the end of our learning about How can God bring Freedom and Justice, we are going to reflect on what we have learnt.

How do the Ten Commandments bring freedom and justice?

The story of the Exodus has inspired Jewish and Christian people for centuries.

List three reasons why you think this might be the case. Which parts of the story are inspiring and why? What lessons could there be for all people about resisting injustice and tyranny?

Can you explain how Christians believe that God brought freedom to the people of God? How do believers try to bring justice today?

It isn’t just Christian and Jewish people who want freedom and justice. Reflect on why ideas of freedom and justice are so important in the world today.

Give an example E.g. Desmond Tutu. Why is he so inspiring?

Screenshot of viewpure.com

Activtiy: Write Ten Lessons for Living, show what we can do to bring more freedom and justice, explaining why these are good lessons for living. Don’t write the Ten Commandments.

PE

Tennis – Switch Catch

Watch this video of a simple but fantastic game you can play with another person.

Monday

Can I work systematically to find all possible ways?

Children list systematically the possible combinations resulting from two groups of objects. Encourage the use of practical equipment and ensure that children take a systematic approach to each problem. Children should be encouraged to calculate the total number of ways without listing all the possibilities. e.g. Each T-shirt can be matched with 4 pairs of trousers so altogether 3 × 4 = 12 outfits.

Maths Talk…

What are the names of the shapes on the shape cards? How do you know you have found all of the ways? Would making a table help? Without listing, can you tell me how many possibilities there would be if there are 5 different shape cards and 4 different number cards?

 

Tuesday 

Can I work systematically to find all possible ways?

You could watch the video from yesterday again if you feel you need a little recap.

Wednesday 

Can I count money (pence)?

Children need to know the value of each coin and note and understand what these values represent.
They should understand that money can be represented in different ways but still have the same value. Children will need to be able to add coin values together to find the total amount.

Maths Talk:

What is the value of the coin/note?  What does p mean? Why do we have different values of coins and notes? What’s the difference between £5 and 5p?

Thursday

Can I count money (pounds)?

Children will continue counting but this time it will be in pounds, not pence. The £ symbol will be introduced.  Children must be aware that both coins and notes are used to represent amounts in pounds. Children will count in £1, £2, £5, £10 and £20s.  In this year group, children work within 100, therefore they will not count in £50s.

Maths Talk

Do the notes have a greater value than the coins?
Which is the hardest to count? Which is the easiest? Why? What do you notice about the amounts?
Does it matter which side the equals sign is?
Can you find the total in a different way?

Friday

Can I count money (pence and pounds)?

Children need to know the value of each coin and note and understand what these values represent.  They should understand that money can be represented in different ways but still have the same value. Children will need to be able to add coin values together to find the total amount.

Maths Talk

What is the value of the coin/note?
What does p mean?
Why do we have different values of coins and notes? What’s the difference between £5 and 5p?

Please see the Dropbox for all resources 

TOPIC: Antarctic

Focus: I wonder, who lives/visits the Antarctic and who looks after it?

This week, we would like you to find out about who (humans) live and visit Antarctica and what they do there?  What impact do humans have on Antarctica?

We would also like you to find out about environmental agencies that look after Antarctica. Why is it important to preserve Antarctica? What things are there to preserve?

Design a poster. Split your paper in half: on one half think about the humans who live/work on Antarctica and on the other half think about an environmental agency that helps preserve the Antarctica. Add in as much information as you can about both aspects.

Screenshot of www.slideshare.net

SCIENCE: Earth and Space

Focus: Can I describe the movement of the Moon relative to the Earth?

First of all, let’s see what the moon is like. Have a look at some or all of these websites.

Screenshot of www.bbc.co.uk
Screenshot of www.moonconnection.com
Screenshot of moon.nasa.gov

Deep thinking time – How does the shape of the Moon appear to change over time?

Watch this video about myths –

Screenshot of www.bbc.co.uk

I would like you to think about these following statements:

Bits of the Moon fall off and then grow back again
The Moon can only be seen at night
There is Moon that is a shape of a circle, and there is another Moon that sometimes replaces it that is shaped like a crescent.

Can you think of some evidence that could prove or disprove these statements?

Now watch this clip (you could complete the activity too if you can).

Screenshot of www.bbc.co.uk

Finally, create an explanation text to explain how the Moon changes.

Use the poster on explanation texts to ensure that you have the correct format and are using the appropriate words/phrases. 

RE: People of God

Video Resource to accompany this lesson

Focus: I wonder, which commandment would have the most impact on the world today if everyone followed it?

Think about this Units big question:

From the story of the Exodus: how far does following God bring freedom and justice?

I wonder, why do you think God make a covenant with the Israelites?  Do you think making a covenant with God brought freedom and justice to the Israelites? Explain why.

 

Let’s think about what happened next…

Screenshot of www.youtube.com

Look at the extract from Exodus 20 – The Ten Commandments.

What must some people have been doing, if the People of God had to be given these commands? Do you need rules to do something if you’re already doing it?

 

Now look at these questions and think about what your responses would be.

What is similar or different in the world today, how many of these things are still going on? Give three good reasons why Christians (and Jewish people) argue that the ten commandments are still important today?

Is it possible to keep all ten commandments always?

What might an atheist say about the value of these commandments?

Which commandment do you think is the hardest for a Christian to keep? Explain why.

Is it hard not to kill, or is it harder to never be greedy, or to always tell the truth?

What happens when humans fail to live up the standard? Should a person be punished or helped?

Now answer at least 3 of these questions. There is a model on the PowerPoint (please see Dropbox for this) to support your own writing.

PE: Tennis

Tennis

This week we have some ‘Tennis at home’ activities for you to do. These are exercises which help you with fitness and movements that you need for tennis.

This week’s activity is called Pirate Catch…

Dance

Try these Just Dance Space dances.

 

Music

L.I Can I sing a song based on Gustav Holst’s Jupiter?

Here is Gustav Holst’s Jupiter:

Screenshot of www.youtube.com

In Roman mythology, Jupiter was the king of heaven and Earth, and of all the Olympian gods.

The music to Jupiter the Bringer of Jollity has been used many times in recent English history. I wonder, can you find out at which famous events this piece of music has been played at?

It was used as the tune to a very famous English poem too.  I wonder, can you find out what poem this was and what the poem/music is now used for?

Here is that piece of music:

Screenshot of www.youtube.com

Listen to The World in Union, looking at the lyrics (words) and well as learning the tune.  Which of the human values does The World in Union remind you of?

PSHE

Watch the video:

Screenshot of www.bbc.co.uk

Then discuss or write the answers to these questions.

1.     How are the lives of these children the same as yours?

2.     How are the lives of these children different from yours?

3.     What aspirations/dreams might these children have?

4.     How are their dreams the same/different to yours?

5.     Why do you think it’s important to be aware of how children in different cultures to our own live?
