Year 5 Class Page

What a great year you will have with Miss Clark! Year 5 is so much fun, you are nearly the oldest in school but don’t have the pressures of leadership! Upper Key Stage 2 comes with plenty of responsibility, and a lot of fun. Learning about the terrific Tudors, the excellent Egyptians and magnificent maps (you will become a cartographer!) is going to make you wish Year 5 lasted forever!

You will also play a big part in the massive summer spectacular, Matilda The Musical!

Check back here for updates about what we are getting up to!

Y5 Class Charity

This year Y5 have chosen to the support Diabetes UK – a charity very close to our hearts!

Home

We can’t wait to get fundraising for them and have some very enterprising ideas!

Spring 1 – Week 2

Please use the resources below if you are self isolating or want to do extra work to support what you are doing in school.

There is also TimesTable Rockstars and Reading Plus for you to practise your Times Table skills and Reading skills.

English

Writing

This week we are continuing with our Newspaper Report. We have planned our report so this week we will spend time drafting, editing and writing up our final version. This process is very different if you’re doing it at home so just go at your own pace and finish when you finish.

Grammar

Handwriting

In handwriting we are looking at forming and joining the letter ‘y’ correctly. Use the resources below to practise at home.

Maths

Monday – Round decimals to the nearest whole number or tenth.

Tuesday – Compare numbers with up to three decimal places.

Wednesday – Order numbers with up to three decimal places.

Thursday – Add and subtract decimals mentally.

Friday – TTRS 4 Minute Challenge

Science

This week we are learning about the Earth’s rotation and how it is linked to day and night.

The Earth rotates on its axis and this makes it appear as though the sun is moving across the sky. Just like when you are on a train and the houses seem to be moving, but really it’s you on the train that is moving. The part of the Earth that is facing the Sun is in daytime and the part of the Earth facing away from the Sun is in darkness so it is night! This is also why we have different time zones – different countries are facing the sun at different times of the day – so in one country it’s daytime and in another it’s night.

Have a go at one of the worksheets below to show what you have learnt. The first one is a bit easier than the second 🙂

Writing

This week we are starting work on Newspaper writing! We are going to write a newspaper report on the discovery of Tutankhamun’s tomb.

Monday – Identifying the features of a newspaper report.

Grab a newspaper (or look at the example) and see if you can find the particular features of a newspaper report (article) Use the checklist below and find examples of all the different features.

Tuesday – Punctuating direct speech.

Direct speech is when the exact words that have been said are written down inside inverted commas. For example; “How many people have covid in Year 5!?” asked Miss Clark.

Today we will be working on converting what someone has said into quotes we can use in our newspaper report. Have a go at converting the quotes on the worksheet into direct speech. Remember to use words other than said!

Wednesday – Punctuating reported speech.

Today we are looking at reported speech! This is where we report what the person has said but don’t need to use inverted commas. This can be handy for newspaper reports when you want to report what witnesses have said but don’t want lots of quotes in your writing.

So rather than writing – Miss Clark asked the class, “How many people are there in today?” – you can write Miss Clark asked the class how many people there were in today. It’s a different way to include what someone has said and can make the writing flow quicker for your reader.

Have a go at converting the quotes on the worksheet into reported speech. Remember to include some context about who said it and what they were talking about. Once you have done that you could include some of your own – what do you think witnesses would say when talking about the discovery of the tomb?

Thursday – Planning a newspaper report.

Today we are planning our newspaper report. You will need to plan out what you are going to write in each paragraph. Think about vocabulary, what facts and opinions you want in your report.

First think about key vocab that you will need to use in your report!

Then plan your headline – this needs to be short snappy and use either alliteration or a pun to grab your readers attention.

A very important part of a newspaper report is the orientation and reorientation – think introduction and conclusion.

Your orientation needs to include your who, what, where, when information.

Then you have your main paragraph where you will give details on the who, what, where and when and add in the why. This is where you tell the full story of what has happened, lots of facts.

Your third paragraph is for more specific details including reactions from people. You can include lots of opinions and quotes from people who were there or people who the event affects. Remember to use some direct and reported speech.

Finally, the reorientation. This is where you talk about what is happening now and next. How has this discovery changed peoples lives or their understanding of egypt? What is going to happen next to the artefacts discovered? Things like that!

Use the template below to plan your report.

Friday – Spelling definitions

Handwriting

In handwriting we are looking at forming and joining the letter ‘k’ correctly. Use the resources below to practise at home.

Maths

This week we are continuing to look at fractions.

Monday – Finding fractions of numbers.

To find a fraction of an amount you divide by the bottom and times by the top – when dividing the remainder is a fraction. Look at the examples at the top of the page and try out the questions.

Tuesday – Multiplying fractions

Today we are looking at multiplying fractions.

Have a look at the examples at the top of the page and watch the video to learn how to multiply fractions by a whole number. Remember the denominator stays the same unless you have to simplify it!

Wednesday – Write decimals as fractions

Today we are moving onto decimals as fractions. The really important thing to remember is the place value of decimals so that you can read and write them correctly.

Here you can see that the columns to the right of the decimal point go in the opposite direction (like negative numbers do past zero)

Have a look at the example at the top of the worksheet below – the abacus represents 0.326 because there is 3 in the tenths column, 2 in the hundredths and 6 in the thousandths. We would write this as 236/1000 as a fraction (but as an actual fraction – I can’t write it like that on the computer)

So for the number 2 and 54/100 that is 2 wholes and 54 hundredths – the decimal would be 2.54.

Have a go at the worksheet below – do whatever section you are comfortable with, if you want to do more than one section then that’s great but you would only be expected to do one in class!

Thursday – Thousandths, hundredths and decimal equivalents

Today we are going to continue looking at decimals.

Friday – TTRS 4 Minute Challenge

Science

This week in science we are looking at the size of the Earth, Sun and Moon. We freaked ourselves out with the entire multiverse last week so lets stick a bit closer to home this week!

History

This week we are looking at Tutankhamun and thinking about primary and secondary sources.

A primary source is an original, first hand account of something that happened. For example; letters or diary entries from someone who was there, artefacts, paintings etc. A secondary source is a second hand account that uses primary sources. For example; research websites, books about a subject, essays etc.

Use primary and secondary sources to create a fact file/poster on Tutankhamun.

Autumn 2 – Week 6

English

This week we are continuing our work on narrative writing! We will be writing a narrative piece based on Harry Potter.

In Handwriting we are still looking at the presentation of our writing. We are brilliant at letter formation and the joins we need to use but now we need to get quicker at writing! It is important that we can plan our writing and independently work out where we will need to start and finish so this week we are practising just that!
