Home Learning 1/3/21

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 and 20 minutes of Spelling Shed.


This week we will continue to look at instructions.

Which one of these instructions is better? Why? Use the checklist to evaluate the examples, this will help us to refresh our memory on what makes a good set of instructions.


Read this extract from The Secret Garden and answer the questions next to it.


Today we are going to apply our learning from last half term when adding fractions with different denominators to mixed numbers. A mixed number is a number that is made up of a whole number and a fraction.

Miss Busby will show you the steps below and work through the example of images below.

Step 1 – Add the whole numbers together. 

Step 2 – Separate the fraction element.

Step 3  – Convert one fraction so that the denominator is the same as the other. Remembering the rule that what you do to the denominator you do to the numerator.

Step 4 – Carry out the addition with the same denominator.

Step 5 – Convert the answer into a mixed number

Step 6 – Remember to add in the whole number answer from Step 1.

Step 7 – Convert the fraction into its lowest form.

Using this knowledge, watch the video clip below and have a go at the worksheet questions you are directed to complete. 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).

If you are feeling confident, you can have a look at the extra challenge questions below.


Saying what there is in a town using Es gibt …

1.What can you remember from last week? Fill in the gaps to complete the buildings in a town words. Try to do it from memory before you check.

2. Here are the words if you need a recap:

3. Look at this sentence building grid. To say there is … something, you use Es gibt … but what comes next depends on whether the building is der /die /das. 

Examples: There is a new station. =  Es gibt einen neuen Bahnhof.        There is a new post office. = Es gibt eine neue Post. Write at least 6 sentences using the grid saying what there is in Chelmsford or in your imaginary town which you drew last week. Pay close attention to word endings and capital letters. 

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