Week beginning 19th October 2020

Good morning Year 5!

A reminder - this week's learning may look a little different, as have Black History Day on Wednesday and it's an INSET day on Friday. :)

Maths

(Scroll down for worksheets – Don’t worry if you can’t print them off  - you can type your answers into BGfL or complete on paper)

Monday and Tuesday

We are practicing short multiplication. This video will give you an reminder of how to do it: https://vimeo.com/458470803

(This video is not as comprehensive, but has smaller numbers): https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=SfxULALs_u8

Complete the 2 x 1 digit multiplication on Monday, and the 3 x 1 digit on Tuesday. :)

Thursday:

We are looking at Inverse Operations. You looked at this with addition and subtraction in class a few weeks ago. Now we are using X tables facts to find missing numbers in problems. Think about the inverse knowledge your X tables give you -

e.g. if I know 3 x 4 = 12, I also know that

4 x 3 = 12

12 divided by 4 = 3

12 divided by 3 = 4

You need to rearrange the problems so that the ? is after the = bar. I highly recommend writing out your X tables on the side of the paper before you begin! 

e.g. 5 x ? = 35

35 div 5 = ?

? = 7

 

English

Monday: Look at the powerpoint below for examples of  2 pair and 3 bad - question sentences. See if you can have a go at writing some of your own.

Tuesday: Look at the description of the witches' heath. Then have a go at writing your own setting description using the success criteria.

Wednesday: BLACK HISTORY DAY: Complete the reading comprehension about Maya Angelou's poem, I Know Why the Caged Bird Sings.

Thursday: Watch the video about possessive apostrophes and complete the activities.

Monday

Use the online atlas https://kids.britannica.com/kids/browse/atlas  (or a paper atlas if you have one at home) to add the following onto the worksheet:

  1. Stratford (where Shakespeare was born)
  2. London (where Shakespeare lived and worked, and where the Tudor monarchs like Henry V111 lived)
  3. The River Avon
  4. The River Thames
  5. Mountain ranges (choose 4)
  6. County borders (that’s an optional challenge!)

Tuesday

Look at the 2 maps of Stratford on the sheet. Can you list the similarlities and differences between Stratford in Tudor times and Stratford now?

 

Black History Day – Wednesday

We are going to start planning our slave diaries today. Please read through our example diary and highlight all the things you could see on the slave ship in one colour, all the things you could hear in another, all the things you could feel in a different colour, and all the things you could smell in a different colour.  What do you notice about each paragraph in the diary?

Your teach will go through this with you on teams. 

 

After that, open the diary planner file either here on in assignments, and make some notes about what you're going to see, hear, smell and feel when you write your own diary.

Please watch this video https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ZN0qP0vRqVE, and answer* these questions: 

(*If you can get onto Teams, you can open the assignment and write your answers directly onto the document. If not, you can write your answers on a J2e5 document, or on paper.)

 

1. Do you think it is important that members of the public can vote for who they want to lead the country? (Why/why not?) 

 

2. What do you think life might be like in a country without Democracy (where the people do not have a say on who leads the country). 

 

3. Do you think everyone should be able to vote? 

 

4. When you are 18, you will be able to vote in general elections. Imagine if when that time comes, someone told you that you couldn’t vote because of something you couldn’t control (for example, your gender, skin colour, eye colour, how much money you have…) How would that make you feel? Would it be fair?
