Summer Term 2020

Home Learning

I hope that you have all had a great week and enjoyed last week's learning. I very much enjoyed seeing you on the zoom calls and doing the space explorers quiz with you. 

During next week's zoom call I would like you to talk about what you are proud of yourself for during your time in Year 5. This could be something you did whilst we were all still learning together in school or from your time of learning from home. It could be something you do as an extra-curricular activity such as learning a musical instrument or participating in sport. You may also wish to show something such as a piece of work, a medal or certificate that you have been awarded this year and are proud of. 

I hope you have a great week and enjoy your learning.

Miss Roberts

Science

This week you are going to continue the science topic 'Animals including humans'. This week you are going to choose a number of different animals to research. As part of your research find out how long the animals' gestation periods are, their average mass at birth, their average adult mass and their average life expectancy. Firstly record your research using a table. Then present your data in a line graph using 2graph on Purplemash (this is set as a 2do). Watch the tutorial video to learn how to present your data in a line graph. Once you have made your graphs, use them to compare the data and answer the following questions:  Do animals with the longest life expectancy have the longest gestation periods?  Do animals with the lowest average adult mass have the shortest gestation periods? Can you think of any questions of your own and then use your graphs to answer them?

Talk to a member of your family about the possibilities of 3D printing. Instead of ink, 3D printers can print with plastic, metal and even food!  These printers require a file called an ‘.stl’ file. You can can save work as an ‘.stl’ file in 2Design and Make by clicking the button. This file can then be sent to a 3D printer. The printer prints many layers of plastic to build up the 3D model. You might wish to search for a video about how 3D printers work.

The 2design and make tool has been set as a 2 do.

  • Explore how the Net View relates to the 3D model by making the net the main view and using the Drawing tool to draw on one of the surfaces.
  • Next, add repeating patterns to the design by using the Pattern Fill tool. Create a brick or tile pattern. First clear the default pattern by usig the rubber button on the pattern fill tool, then make a pattern like these for bricks and tiles: 
  • Now have a go at making your own building. Remember to save your work. 

Values

This week I would like you to reflect on May's value of 'Self-belief'. I would like you to think about all the things that you CAN do, especially the things that you doubt yourself about and have to try hard to approach positively. Under this week's resources there is a sheet called 'I can' Statements. Complete the 10 sentences by thinking about all the things you can do. 

PE

This week I would like you to try to achieve the challege that you have been training for these past few weeks. It might be that you go for your 5km run or the 10 mile bike ride that you have been aiming for. Remember that it is supposed to be difficult because that is what a challenge is. Self-belief, determination and positive thinking will help you to get through it when it becomes difficult. Before you start your challenge, plan what you will do when it gets difficult and you feel like giving up. What positive thoughts will you tell yourself? How can you split the challenge up into smaller parts, such as each km, and praise yourself at each part? How can your family support you? How will you celebrate your achievement?                                                         I wish you lots of luck and I know that with postive thinking YOU CAN DO IT! 

Week beginning 25th May 2020

PE and Values

This week I would like you to set yourself a physical challenge. A challenge should be something that is difficult for you to do and requires you to keep trying or practising to achieve it. As you know, our new value is Self-Belief. To achieve a challenge you need to be able to stay positive and to believe in yourself - this is self-belief. You will also need to show other values such as resilience, determination and positivity.

First of all you will need to choose your challenge. You should ensure that you choose something that you want to achieve as you will need to put time and effort into doing it. Remember a challenge is not something that you can do easily; it should be something that will take practise and hardwork. Here are some example challenges that you may want to choose from or you may want to come up with your own. You may need to adapt these to your own fitness and ability.   

  1. To run 5km. 
  2. To cycle 10 miles in under 1 hour. 
  3. To do 20 'Keepie-ups' with a football. Keep the ball from touching the floor using only your foot, knee or head. 
  4. To do 500 skips a day, for a week, with a skipping rope.
  5. Jump on the trampoline continuously for 30 minutes each day 

There is a fitness diary that you can find under this week's resources. Use this to record how you are getting on with your challenge. Record how you stay positive and have self-belief when it becomes difficult and you feel like giving up. How can you push away the negative thoughts and replace them with positive ones? What things can you tell yourself so that you don't give up? How can your family help you to believe in yourself and help you to keep going? 

Week beginning 11th May 2020

Revise prime numbers and square numbers by watching the videos and completing the activity and worksheet. You may want to watch one video each day (Mon-Wed) before doing your main lesson on whiterose and then do the interactive activity on Thursday and the worksheet on Friday. https://www.bbc.co.uk/bitesize/articles/zvv6t39

Ask a grown up to test you on prime numbers, square numbers and maybe even some cubed numbers! You could play popcorn like you did a few weeks ago or play 'What's my rule'. This is when you, or the adult you are playing with, chooses a rule (keep it a secret), this could be prime numbers, square numbers, multiples of 7, factors of 100 etc. The other person then asks random numbers that are less than 100. If they fit the rule the person say 'yes' and if they don't they say 'no'. Record the numbers in a table to try to work out the rule. 

Access the following web page. Select Summer Term week 2 and do one lesson per day (the first one is 'Adding Decimals with the same number of decimal places').

Design Technology

A few weeks ago I gave you a set of 'Spring Challenges' to complete. One of the challenges was to build an outside or inside den. Did you manage to make one? This week I would like you to design and make a den using house hold items (this could be an improved version of last times). The first thing to do is to look for places around your house and garden where it could go. This may be under a large table, under a rotary washing line, near to fences or trees, using large boxes etc. You may want to search the Internet to see some different ideas for homemade dens. Think about what will go over the top to make a roof or walls. Old sheets, curtains, wind breakers are a few useful ideas. Think about how you may fix, secure and fasten things. You may want to use string, ropes, pegs, wood clamps. Draw and label plans for a few of your different den ideas. Select your favourite design and get building. Remember that you may have to change and adapt your ideas if things don't work out as you planned. This is all part of the process of designing and making. When your den is finished, take a moment to evaluate it. What went well? What did you have to change? What would you do differently next time? How could you have made it even better? I can't wait to hear about your creations and I'll tell you all about mine! 

Here is a link to a children's DIY television series which gives children the dens of their dreams. You get to watch expert designers and builders from the 'Dengineers' team create extraordinary structures. You may pick up a few tips! https://www.bbc.co.uk/teach/class-clips-video/design-and-technology-ks2-dengineers/z4rtrj6

The next day, redraft your story. Firstly, check that your spelling and punctuation is accurate and you have not omitted any words. Then check that it is consistently written in the same tense and it all makes sense to the reader. Maybe ask someone in your house to listen to you read it. Finally, try to improve your writing by using more interesting vocabulary and a wider range of punctuation.

Finally, produce a final draft of the story that is well presented. This could be hand written using your best hand writing pen or typed and printed.
