Maths – LO: metric units

Here‘s your video for today! You know what to do! Any questions, send me an email.

Reading – LO: create a puzzle

Using this week’s version of FirstNews, your task today is to create your own puzzle like the ones we have completed in previous home learning tasks.
This could be a crossword puzzle or a wordsearch (where the words you have to find are given as clues).
I’d like you to pick an article, within the newspaper and use this to create some clues for your puzzle. It’s a good idea to use an article that’s about the size of a page so that it is challenging enough.
Remember, the words you choose for your puzzle must be in the article!

Here is a crossword from a previous week to help you.

Writing – LO: figurative language

Using this BBC Bitesize lesson, let’s build on our poetry learning from yesterday and explore figurative language.

You need to read the web page, watch the videos and complete activities one and two.

Challenge

Complete activity three.

We’d like you to answer these questions based on the FirstNews from this week.

Poetry – LO: analysing and performing

Today, we’re going to learn how to analyse and perform poetry. You need to read this web page, watch the videos and complete the three activities.

Once you’ve done, you need to choose a poem from activity two and perform it to either a family member, the mirror or record yourself on video!

As always, send in your home learning – we’d love to give you some stars and a step!

Hey Y5!
I’m loving all the learning that is being sent to me and I hope my feedback is useful for you! Keep it up.
Today’s learning consists of maths, reading and living and learning.

Maths – LO: kilograms and kilometres

We’re starting some new maths learning today which involves converting units.
Click here for the video! Answer the questions as we go along.
Here are the questions on a word document if needed.
Reading – LO: vocabulary
I know you all love reading FirstNews, so click here for the latest edition.
Your task today is to find ten increasingly complex words/phrases you are unsure about the meaning of and define them in your home learning book.
How could you find the meaning of these words? You could use a dictionary, an online dictionary or you could use your inference skills and read around the word, using the clues in the sentence.
Whichever way you choose is up to you! Please send your work to me: [email protected]
