Home Learning 2/3/21

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.


Today we will be looking at an organisational device that is not only used in instructions, but in many different types of writing: bullet points! Watch the video at have a go at the activities from the link below:


Have a go at the activities below, remember you don’t have to print the sheet you can write your answers on a separate piece of paper.


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


Today, we are moving on to looking at subtracting fractions. You are already comfortable with subtracting fractions which have the same denominator. Today’s learning is all about subtraction of fractions with different denominators. You should now be becoming more comfortable with calculating equivalent fractions but below is a worked example that shows the steps to follow.

Convert the denominators on one fraction so that they are the same as the other. Remember the rule that “whatever you do to the denominator you do to the numerator”. Rewrite the calculation and then do the straight forward subtraction of the numerator.

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. To be able to tackle these questions you will need to watch the video clip below which shows Miss Busby explaining how to subtract fractions which have denominators that are not multiples of each other.


This term we are looking at creation stories. Last week we focused on the creation stories for Christianity, Judaism and Islam. This week, we are looking at Buddhism and Sikhism. Look at the two different religions and answer these questions:

  • What are the main similarities and differences between these two creation stories?
  • How does the creation story for Sikhism compare with the religions you looked at last week? (Christianity, Judaism and Islam)
  • Why do you think all of these creation stories are similar?



Do religions need to have a creation story? Why? Why not?

Why don’t some religions have a creation story?

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

Miss Mullinger and Miss Busby
