Hello, Year 5! Here is our Happy Picture of the Day:

Below is the home learning for today. Remember that you don’t need to print off the work you can complete it on a separate piece of paper.

Each day we expect you to complete:

-20 minutes of reading

-20 minutes of Times Table Rockstars

-20 minutes of Spelling Shed


English:

This week we will be continuing to look at Newspaper Reports. Our new grammar focus is indirect and direct speech. Watch the video below, and complete the activity afterwards.


Reading:

Read this extract from Cosmic and answer the questions next to it.


Maths:

Today we are starting our new topic of Fractions. We know that you were unable to complete these topic last year so we begin with a recap of what fractions are and will build up from that over the coming weeks. Do not worry as we will revisit this when we return back to school.

We will be using White Rose videos to clearly explain each concept relating to fractions and completing work that is taught in them. If you need to, watch the videos several times to be sure you understand what is being explained.

Watch the following video clip introducing what fractions are. When it says stop and complete certain questions on the worksheet, use the worksheet link below to use the taught explanations. There is no need to print the sheet out, you can just write the question number and your answer.

You can mark your work using the attached answer sheet (again, no need to print this out, just use it to check your answers)


German:

German verb “haben” – to have. Today you will be learning to use the verb haben which is really important in German. Here it is in full:

haben to have
ich habeI have
du hast you have
er / sie /es hathe / she / it has
wir habenwe have
ihr habtyou guys have
sie habenthey have
Sie haben you (formal) have
  1. On the first sheet you need to match up the pronouns with the correct part of haben, then fill in gaps in sentences and try to translate the sentences into English. The answers are there for you to mark your work, but don’t be tempted to look at the answers first!
  2. Wordsearch sheet with the verb haben. 
  3. For fun: this song is what children might sing when they are waiting for their dinner. Can you spot “Wir haben”  in the song? Here is a video you can watch https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=FuzQraV8d1Q and the words are here too for the first 3 verses: 
    Wir haben Hunger, Hunger, Hunger, haben Hunger, Hunger, Hunger, haben Hunger, Hunger, Hunger, haben Durst. 
    Wo bleibt das Essen, Essen, Essen, bleibt das Essen, Essen, Essen, bleibt das Essen, Essen, Essen, bleibt die Wurst? 
    Wenn wir nichts kriegen, kriegen, kriegen, fressen wir Fliegen, Fliegen, Fliegen, fressen wir Fliegen, Fliegen, Fliegen, von der Wand.

The answers are at the bottom of the PDF documents, no peeking! We can’t wait to see your work on Seesaw.

Now that you have written your Newspaper Report, why not make a video presenting it as a newsreader?! We would love to see how you use your tone of voice and awareness of your audience. You can be as creative as you want by making a backdrop, using music or having a costume! Whatever you like!

Don’t worry, it will only be Miss Mullinger and Miss Busby that will see their classes videos. Watch this video below for some tips:

Well done, you have all worked hard to try to get to grips with division. Today, we are looking at extending this even further with dealing with division calculations that leave remainders.

Use the video link below to support your understanding of the layout and how to tackle the calculations.

As we are sure you have got by now, do not worry about the reference to questions on a worksheet. When you are ready, look at the questions on the worksheet below and choose the appropriate challenge level for you.


RSPB Big Garden Birdwatch 2021

We often think that birds are just something pretty to look at. However, they do a lot for the environment.

The RSPB is a charity that was founded in 1889 to ensure birds were protected in England, Scotland and Wales. It stands for Royal Society for the Protection of Birds.

Using the sheet with the pictures of birds below, spend some time outdoors or you can look out of the window (it can be 5 minutes every now and then throughout the day). If you spot any of the birds below, record your sighting. You can use a tally chart if you like.

Once you’ve completed your observations, you can draw a bird. Use the document below to help you.

This week in English we are starting to look at Newspaper Reports. You may want to ask an adult in your home to keep their newspapers so you can see what they look like! First, have a look at the videos and activities on BBC Bitesize:

https://www.bbc.co.uk/bitesize/topics/z2yycdm/articles/z2gk9qt

We will begin by looking at the features of a Newspaper Report. Using the checklist below see if you can identify and annotate the features of the example below. You can use different colours and a key like we do in class! If you are unable to print the work, then just write a feature and copy a section of the text that has that feature.

Maths:

Today, we are starting our new topic of division. We are going to start by recapping your understanding and then build into the formal method. We are going to use White Rose Video uploads to support you with this learning. Do not worry, if you initially find this difficult as we are going to be focusing on division all week. We will also revisit this with you when we get back into school

Watch the video introducing dividing two digits by one digit. The video link refers to answering certain questions on a worksheet; do not worry about this as the questions provided on the blog are different to these, in order to be able to provide more differentiation of challenge.

Once you have watched the video have a go at the worksheet attached, remembering to present your work as modelled in the video. Choose the appropriate challenge level for you and don’t forget to self-mark your answers. You can also add a Learning Evaluation when you finish.


German:

You can choose either Activity 1 or 2 (or both if you want to challenge yourself!)

Activity 1: Bread in Germany – 2 sided task (attached). Bread is really important in German culture. Read the texts (in English) on the first page, then on the second page answer the questions and choose a type of bread to draw.

Activity 2: Incy Wincy Spider in German

Die Winzig Kleine Spinne
Die winzig kleine Spinne, kroch auf den Wasserhahn. 
Dann kam der Regen und warf sie aus der Bahn.
Dann kam die Sonne und trocknet wieder auf,
und die winzig kleine Spinne kroch wiederum hinauf.

  1. Which words from Incy Wincy Spider in German mean the following, do you think:

a. spider         b. rain        c. water spout            d. crept           e. came        

       2. Write out the rhyme in German and illustrate it 

       3. You could try saying it with actions and recording yourself – we will practise this on the zoom so you know how to pronounce the words. 

Optional ongoing challenge: If you would like to try independent learning for German, and have access to a device, the Duolingo app allows you (free of charge) to improve your language skills. You could do German, or even try another language of your choice. There are many to choose from. You need to ask your adult first, and you may need them to help you initially. You can go at your own pace.

Example:

“Wait!” shouted the man as he began to walk down the street. The bus carried on travelling down the street. “I’m going to be late for work! Stop the bus!”. All around him, he could see people staring at him. A few seconds later, the bus pulled in to the bay, “Alright mate, don’t you worry, I was going to pull in at the next stop anyway,” the driver commented as he opened the double doors.
