HOME LEARNING FOR SELF ISOLATING PUPILS

If you are having to self isolate at home, every child is being provided with a blank exercise book in which we would expect you to complete some tasks whilst you are away at school should you feel well enough. These will be set weekly and require minimal support from parents as the tasks set will all be linked to current of prior learning in class.

23.3.20 - 27.3.20 (Term 4 Week 5)

I hope you enjoyed the beautiful sunshine and played outside when possible. I took my dogs on a long country walk with my family - we had a lovely time and it was great to get some fresh air. Below is the work I have set for the coming week.  I suggest you try to stick to a routine everyday.  If you get stuck, don't forget to look on BBC Bitesize Key Stage 2 for help.  I can't wait to see your books - please make sure you take great pride in your books and try your best.  If you make a mistake, put one line through with a ruler and pencil so I can see it - mistakes are how we learn!

Don't forget to take part in Joe Wicks keep fit everyday!

 

DAILY:

Please write out spellings and choose 2 words to put into 2 high level sentences:

Group A – National Curriculum word list revision (Y3/4)

Group B – National Curriculum word list revision (Y5/6)

natural

guarantee

naughty

harass

notice

hindrance

occasion

identity

occasionally

immediate

often

individual

opposite

interfere

often

interrupt

ordinary

language

particular

leisure

DAILY: reading (20 minutes) ideally with an adult.  Please record daily reading in your reading record book (or in the back of your isolation exercise book).  Talk about the book, what has happened and discuss the meaning of any new words you come across.

Yu may want to start a list of these 'golden words'.

 

DAILY: complete maths set (document below) and complete 20 minutes of Times Tables Rock Stars.  If you google White Rose maths home learning Year 5, there are some fun activities for you to complete.  If you would like an additional challenge, also look at the White Rose Year 5 unit of work - decimals, fractions and percentages and complete the secure it / deepen it tasks.

 

Over the week, please write a modern day 'Highwayman' story - use the idea of 'bad man' turned good but relate to things that happen today e.g. a car thief, a robber, a man (or woman) who paints graffiti on walls.  Include lots of high level story openers, speech, descriptive language and accurate punctuation.  Remember paragraphs for opening (setting and character description), build up, problem, resolution and ending - perhaps 1 paragraph a day.  Remember to read back to edit.  You could have a happy ending or a tragic ending - this is up to you.

 

 

Over the week, find out more about 'forces' - you may want to refer to the forces knowledge organiser (in curriculum overviews). What forces can you name and identify?  What forces do you use around your home? e.g. for opening a door, dressing. Please divide a page of your exercise book into 6 and draw a picture to illustrate different forces and label / add a caption to explain.

Gravity, air resistance, water resistance, buoyancy, thrust and friction.

I have also included a copy of the spelling and grammar activities that we were to complete before Easter.  This is optional and copies of spelling activities were given to children who were in school during last week (see documents above).

16.3.20 - 20.3.20

1. Please read for 20 minutes each day (at least) - take the time to read with an adult and discuss what new words mean / what has happened. Think about what might happen next.  Record this in your reading record every day (or in another exercise book if the record has been lost).

2. Please use Times Table Rock Stars every day - keep trying to beat your score.  Aim for 20 minutes daily. If you are struggling with a particular table, write out this table and learn the facts off by heart.  You can also record this is an exercise book / notebook to show me.

3. Find the poem 'The Highwayman' on line and perform it to your family.  Now spend the next few days writing this poem in story format - narrative. Remember to include speech and write in the past tense.  Add many adjectives to describe.  Try to include a simile (His coat was as red as blood) and a metaphor ( His eyes were deep pools of loneliness). Also remember to write in paragraphs - write the opening, build up of problem, problem, resolution and ending (aim for at least 1 1/2  sides of A4 paper).  You may wish to edit to up level and write out a best published copy to show me and present to the class on our return.

4. Every day, practise spellings in your exercise book -

interested

especially

island

exaggerate

knowledge

excellent

learn

existence

length

explanation

library

familiar

material

medicine

forty

mention

5. In maths revise all fraction learning:

 

Find equivalent fractions

Convert improper fractions to mixed numbers and mixed numbers to improper fractions

Add and subtract fractions (find the lowest common denominator)

Multiply fractions 3 X 1/5 = 3/5        4 X 2/6 = 8/6 = 1 whole and 2/6

 

This week at school, we have started to learn about decimal numbers e.g.

13.53 = 10 + 3 + 0.5 + 0.03 (10 and 3 and five tenths and three hundredths

6.783 = 6 + 0.7 + 0.08 + 0.003 (6 and 7 tenths and 8 hundredths and 3 thousandths

Please select 20 numbers with decimals and partition in this way - record in a notebook / exercise book / paper.

Complete a table to show how to partition decimal numbers:

Number  

 

 

tenths hundredths thousandths
23.670 20

3

0.6 0.07 0.000
8.065   8 0.0 0.06 0.005
12.704          
32.095
