Letter from Year 5 staff w/c 15th June

Date: 15th Jun 2020 @ 9:27am

Hello everyone, we hope you are all safe and well. I am so excited this week that I have just had to put my news first ….

Guess who has finally arrived … On Sunday 7th June after travelling for 4 days in a bus with lots of other Romanian dogs, Ginny came to her forever home. She is amazing and we all love her very much, even Ziggy is tolerating her! (The Gaukroger family).

English

 

This week’s sequence of lessons focuses on non- chronological reports. The spelling focus is ‘cei’ words.

 

Lesson 1- reading comprehension. In this lesson you will be asked to focus on word meaning within a piece of non-fiction. We often see more technical vocabulary when we read a report. This can be a bit confusing as sometimes these words are unfamiliar and we do not know their meaning if there isn’t a glossary or if we don’t have a dictionary to hand. Reading the word in context means that we can gather clues to try to work out a sensible guess at what the word could mean.

Lesson 2- reading comprehension. The reading focus here is fact retrieval. Technical such as scanning and using key words will be useful. Fact retrieval should be easy… but be careful not to be tricked by similar facts and read the questions really carefully.

Lesson 3- text investigation. Reports are written using particular organisational features which make information easy to locate. Reports do not have to be read as a whole and may just be used in part in order to research a topic. As such, it is really important that reports are organised and presented clearly.

Lesson 4- modal verbs. NOTE- THIS LESSON APPEARS OUT OF SEQUENCE ON THE WEBSITE AND IS FOUND UNDER THE WRITING LESSON AND HEADED LESSON 1. THIS IS LESSON 4.

In These are used with another base verb in order. They usually tell us how likely something is to happen. They can also be used in other ways eg to indicate ability, permission or ordering.

Lesson 5 – independent writing. NOTE- THIS LESSON APPEARS OUT OF SEQUENCE ON THE WEBSITE AND IS LISTED AS LESSON 4 WHEREAS IT SHOULD BE LESSON 5

 this lesson you will be asked to produce a writing using the skills and organisational techniques that you have been exploring this week . the task will be to write a non- chronological report about a mythical creature (either from the suggested creatures or one of your own creation).

Oak National Academy Maths

This week’s oak national academy learning continues with the topic of decimals. The lessons move onto to learning how to multiply decimals by whole numbers and shows how we can use our times tables knowledge to help us.

Week 7

Lesson 1 – To solve problems related to decimals

Handy hints

1 litre = 1000 millilitres

1 metre = 100 centimetres

Lesson 2 – To investigate multiplying decimals

Lesson 3 – To multiply decimals by whole numbers

12  =  0.5        14 = 0.25                  110 = 0.1                   210 = 0.2                  1010  = 1

Lesson 4 – To multiply decimals using a formal method

White Rose Maths Home Learning

Week 7

This week’s White Rose maths is also linked to decimals and fractions. All of the question sheet will be on the website so all you need is a pencil and some paper.

Lesson 1 – decimals as fractions

Handy Hint

1100 = 0.01                15 = 0.2

Lesson 2 – understand thousandths

Handy Hint

3 x 114 =   3 34

First calculate 3 x 1 = 3

Then do 3 x 14 = 34 

Finally add the answers together 3 + 34 = 3 34

Lesson 3 – rounding decimals

Handy Hint

Use a number line to help you find the closest decimal.

Lesson 4 – order and compare decimals

Use a place value chart to help you remember the value of each digit.

Remember the value of each digit in the number – use a place value chart to help you.

Murphy Adventures…

 

 

 

These photos are from the half term holidays when the weather was gorgeous. On Murphy’s morning walk, he loves to run around the field and play with other dogs. Then when we walk home down the enormous hill, he decides to lie in the shade and pant heavily – I sometimes have to carry him home! When it’s sunny, Murphy loves to find shade in the garden and lie down. With lots of long fur, it must be like us sunbathing a thick, winter coat. During the holidays, we took Murphy to a reservoir and he enjoyed his first swim (he’s been in a stream before but it wasn’t deep enough to swim in). We threw a stick in the water then he began swimming – we were so proud of him!

 
 

care all of you, our super year 5 children.
