Year 5 - Summer Term Week 14 Beginning 13.07.20

Year 5 Home Learning
English - The children will now have to complete one writing task, one spelling task, one handwriting task, one spelling, punctuation and grammar task and one reading task each week. However, we will still be encouraging children to read on a daily basis, whether that's on their own, to a parent or to a sibling!
Maths - We will continue to use the White Rose resources where we will provide links to the website where you will be able to watch activity specific videos before completing the activity sheets. However, similar to last week, there will only be four activities to complete so on Friday, please take some time to develop your multiplication confidence through the use of TT Rockstars or the Topmarks Maths website.
PE - Each day, we are still encouraging children to take part in the 'Exercise with Joe Wicks' activity on YouTube. This will allow children to stay active, fit and healthy while not being able to do their usual two hours of high quality PE each week when at school.
Topic - This week, we have provided you with ... different activities to complete. Each activity is linked to a different subject so please give them a good go. It would be great to see some of the topic learning being completed by posting pictures on the school's Facebook page :)
Just for Fun - The Just for Fun activities have been updated, with a few more ideas of different, engaging tasks that you can do. Remember though, these are just some of the things that you can do to have fun while also learn some great life-skills so if you can think of any yourself, please share these with us by uploading some photos to the school's Facebook page or emailing us on the email address below!
Please see a timetable which you can use if you're a little unsure how this would work on a day-to-day basis - we hope it helps but if you do have any questions, please do not hesitate to send any questions to
In this week's writing activity, the children will be given a variety of writing challenges to complete. three of these can be chosen so not all of the activities have to be completed. However, if you want to ROARR and be very aspirational then challenge yourself to complete all of them :) 
In this week's spelling challenge, there are five activity mats, focusing on five different words from the Year 5 and 6 Statutory Spelling List. Similar to last week, it would be great to have a spelling test of the words as the beginning of the week and then again at the end of the week to see if you have made progress :)
Some of the words are challenging so please remember to ROARR if you get stuck!
Spelling, Punctuation and Grammar - SPaG
During this week's SPaG activity, the children will be expected to uplevel and improve a variety of sentences about different topics. One piece of writing is called 'Living in Technicolour' with the other two being called 'Tiny Turtle's Huge Journey' and 'Stalking its Prey'. These are quite a challenge so take your time and remember to use the techniques that you've been taught throughout the year! :)
The children will be given a poem based on the popular film, 'Matilda'. They will have to read it before copying it up in their neatest writing! Remember to take your time and form your letters as accurately and neatly as possible.
The children will be expected to read and answer a large variety of questions linked to different texts. This will provide them with a great opportunity to develop their knowledge of reading different genres :)
White Rose Maths Activities
Please can you carefully work through each of the White Rose maths activities. However, it is recommended that you go to the link below, where you will be able to watch activity specific videos to help you solve each problem.
Once you have accessed the website, please click on Summer Term - Week 12 (w/c 13th July) and watch the video for the specific activity that you're completing. We hope these help!
Remember, on the fifth day, can you please develop your multiplication confidence by using TT Rockstars and Topmarks Maths games :)
Similar to every week, the children are expected to take part in some form of physical activity and we have provided you with the links to the Joe Wicks PE lessons each day. However, we thought it would also be nice to start trying out some yoga as this is known to relax both the mind and body! It also has many other physical and mental benefits so we have attached a link below to a really engaging set of videos on YouTube! We hope you have fun :)
Topic is a little different this week with the activities focused around reading different eBooks linked to the subject of history. With that in mind, the two different texts are 'The Roman Empire' and 'The Pack of Pompeii'.
These are relatively long texts so as the children are reading through them, they need to think of questions that could be asked if they were to complete a comprehension test based on it. We have had quite a lot of practise with this so the children are confident and can think of many great questions so keep that up during this activity :)
Just for Fun
Please choose some of the tasks off of the 'Just for Fun' grid below. This list is not exhaustive and you can choose to do other projects which interest you but we have also provided a link to a really nice website where you can complete some online mindfulness colouring so please give it a go! We have also added a nice music activity for you to try so please share your creativity with us by uploading pictures onto the school's Facebook page or by emailing photographs to us at :)
