1. Spelling practice - Please choose 10 words/week from the Year 5 - 6 list that you will find it below, practice, learn and test yourself at the end of every week. Will you beat your previous score? Check the games suggestions that could make learning spellings more enjoyable. Happy spelling!
2. Times table practice - access your account for TT Rockstars (if you do not have your log-in, ask your parents/guardians to send me an email requesting these details and I will send them back to you.) - https://play.ttrockstars.com/auth
3. Reading for pleasure - 30 min daily
This week I would like you to look at persuasion. More specifically at persuasive letters. This is different from the balanced arguments you wrote a couple of weeks ago, as it tries to convince you/the reader to do something.
For this week's task, I would like you to pretend you are a famous investor that is trying to build an amusement park. Your task will be to write a letter to the local council to persuade them to allow you to start the build.
Today, you will be looking at persuasive features and you will identify them on a given text. Remember to look at structural features as well as language features when you work with the text. You could use different colours to show the difference between structural and language features.
To help you to identify the correct features make sure you check the video below as well as the PowerPoint that holds specific information.
Today you will be completing Lesson 1- Regular and irregular polygons. You will need a ruler for this lesson.
Please log on to https://whiterosemaths.com/homelearning/year-5/ to watch the video before completing the worksheet below. Please check your answers afterward, to ensure you are understanding the concept. Have fun!
If you want to challenge yourself, click on the link below, find today's date and click on the challenge you think suits you.
This is not part of your daily home learning unless you want to challenge yourself. Do not feel that you need to do it, this is entirely optional. I hope you find it interesting.
This week we would like you to get your IPADs, phones or cameras at the ready!
We would like you to take some photographs of some 'Wildlife' that you can see around you. If you have a garden, that is the perfect place to find some wild animals, but if you don't, we are sure that you will be able to achieve this on one of your walks or bike rides. If you are attending school, you may even be able to do this on your way there!
Some of you may be wondering about what sort of wildlife you may spot around our local area, but remember, wildlife doesn't have to be larger species. British wild animals come in all sorts of shapes and sizes!
For example, you may spot some ladybirds, earthworms, birds, snails, squirrels, insects, earwigs, butterflies, spiders, woodlice. The sky is the limit!
Below are some websites you could visit to give you some inspiration! Some creatures that you can find in our local area are actually endangered species such as the 'stag beetle'.
We would like you to take as many photographs as you can, but send us your 1 favourite which we will try and show on our class pages throughout the week. If you do not have a phone, IPAD etc. of your own, maybe your parents or siblings could lend you one, but PLEASE ASK THEIR PERMISSION FIRST! If you really do not have access to anything that you could use to take photographs, you could alternatively create a poster or power point of a chosen animal that you have spotted.
We hope you enjoy having fun with this!
