School is now closed for the majority of pupils. Please find work for your child on the class pages of this website.

Welcome to Class 5

 

Home learning

Below is work for children who are home learning due to the Coronavirus. This will be updated regularly by Mr Macklam. He can be contacted on k.macklam@carltonminiottacademy.org. 

From now on, I will leave 3 days on the webpage, just in case pupils haven't finished previous work. I have purposefully put lots of work on for each day - if your child is struggling to get through it all, don't worry!

Thanks to the children who sent in their Van Gogh drawings of the River Oise at Auvers. Please sign up to and go to Twitter to see them. They are great!!!

Well done for working hard last week - you have excelled yourselves!!!

Remember to keep putting examples of work on Twitter or let everyone know how you are getting on!

Maths

Early Bird - Children should use their Maths book and complete the questions on the Early Bird Maths link (rounding decimals). Use My Maths to help you if you are unsure.

CLIC -  Children should do these mentally. They should spend about 3 mins max on each slide (see slides below). 

Main Focus - WALT Rounding Decimals. This is linked to today's Early Bird. You should have already looked at the My Maths link to help you. Then, click on the following link for the 'White Rose' home learning (Lesson 1 Step 6 -activity and answers). Have a go at the questions (they are a mixture of difficulties - don't worry if you can't do them all). Mark them when you've finished.

 

Reading

WALT: Vocabulary Builder

Read the 2 star (2nd version) of the article on Alan Turing (see below). He was a famous codebreaker during WW2 and this links nicely with our work on cryptography that we did last half term. Then, write down the meanings to the following words (think about the context of the sentence or section): vast, traced, theories, cypher (you should know this!), outcome, outsmart. Don't do any of the questions, yet.

 

Writing

WALT: Features of a poem

Read T.S. Eliot's 'Skimbleshanks' (part 1) below. What features do you notice? Then use the check list to help you. Next, do 1 and 2 of the 'What to do today' below. DON'T DO ANTHING ELSE AT THE MOMENT AS WE ARE GOING TO DO THE OTHER THINGS LATER THIS WEEK.

 

Topic

Geography WALT: The importance of the River Ouse to York through history

Look at the following sites: Link 1    Link 2

Research the importance of the River Ouse to York. Make notes on what you find.

How did the river help the Vikings? How has it helped trade?

Vincent Van Gogh was a famous artist and he painted a picture of boats on the River Oise in France. Press Link to see an example. We have focused on rivers in our topic this week. Please sketch and colour a copy of the picture. If you think you have done a really good one, e-mail it to me and I'll try and publish some on this web page.

 

 

If children would like to complete more work, then please go to the 'Twinkl' website and set up an account using the promotional code: UKTWINKLHELPS. The site is free for a month due to the company supporting pupils who have to be absent during the Coronavirus pandemic. It contains lots of useful resources, worksheets and activity ideas.

Children can, of course, get extra times tables practise using the 'Rockstars' website (they should have log in details for this).

 

Thankyou for your support during these difficult times,

 

Year 5 team
