Year 5 - Moonstone
We are starting to hear more about how things may be in school in September. Therefore, we think it is important for you all to go through a process of bringing the year to an end and thinking about next year. We also want you to be happy and healthy, both physically and mentally over the next couple of weeks and over the whole summer.
Please continue to engage with the topic plans as well as the year 5 weekly tasks. Watch out for any spelling mistakes, we all make them, but being able to spot a mistake is a good learning tool to have! If you find any, make sure you correct them.
Learning is a lifelong process and lock-down should not stop that from happening. I would also emphasise that learning goes across all subjects and areas of life and it is as important to do History, Science, Art, and creative thinking, as it is to learn about Maths and English. So please keep trying new things and doing the things that look after your wellbeing.
WEEK BEGINNING 06.07.2020
Every day, you can:
- Read something for pleasure. – Then talk about your book to someone else
- Write something interesting. – Then read it aloud to your family, have them ask you questions on what you have written.
- Do some exercise.
- Have a conversation with someone. Have each person write 3 subjects they would like to talk about and put them in a pot. Take one out at a time and spark a conversation over dinner.
- Practise your times tables in different ways, including using TT Rockstars.

Your tasks for this week:
- We want you to really focus on your mental health and wellbeing over the next couple of weeks. Of course, we want you to be happy and feel good, but it is also okay when there are days when you feel sad or are worried about something.
- Write a short diary entry each day talking about all of the things that you have done. Include details about what you did, who you did it with, your feelings (both good and bad), and any hopes or ideas for what you will do the next day.
- To help with brushing up on your reading and writing skills, please have a daily visit to the Oak National Academy. This week’s lessons are all about persuasion. Complete all 5 – 1 a day. Follow this link to find the 1st lesson of the week:
- Or you could do the daily book club on BBC bitesize - https://www.bbc.co.uk/bitesize/tags/zhgppg8/year-5-and-p6-lessons There are some great texts for you to read on there.
- Choose two of your favourite films and read the reviews on those films. Does the review match your own views on the films?
- Try to keep a record of all of your reading to share with us when you come back to school.
- Practise words from the Year 5 and 6 spelling list. Make sure you know what each word means. Use ‘rainbow write’ to help you to remember how to spell the words. You could also break the word into syllables (Tip: put your hand on your chin, when you say the word, each time your chin moves is a new syllable – e.g. attention = at-ten-tion).
- Complete the activities below:
A relative clause can be used to give additional information about a noun.
They are introduced by a relative pronoun such as: 'that', 'which', 'who', 'whose', 'where' and 'when'. For example:
I won’t stand by the man who smells of slime!
In this example, the relative clause is ‘who smells of slime’. It provides more information about the man. The relative pronoun, ‘who’, is used to connect these clauses in the sentence.
- This week you can select a times tables you want to improve. Time yourself at the beginning of the week. How long does it take you to get them all correct? Then practise all week and try and beat your score. Keep a daily log. How much did you improve?
- Keep practising telling the time every day.
- Investigate the number patterns below:
- Write the next four numbers in each sequence and record the rule you applied.
- 21 28 35 42 …
- 60 54 48 42 …
- 27 36 45 54 …
- 150 175 200 225 …
- 150 225 300 375 …
If you’re happy, move along. If you need more, practise carry on!
- 32 40 48 56…
- 72 66 60 54 …
- 19 27 35 43 …
- 300 325 350 375 …
- 125 175 225 275 …
Write the next 4 decimal numbers in each sequence and then record the rule you applied
- 2 2.5 3 3.5 …
- 1.1 1.3 1.5 1.7 …
- 3 4.5 6 7.5 …
- 0.2 0.6 1 1.4 …
- 0.8 3.1 5.4 7.7 …
To solve these kinds of questions you need to work out the large jump first and then divide this by the number of small jumps. This will let you know the rule for your sequence.
- Ask your parent/carer to look through the BBC Bitesize lessons to see if there are any lessons that would help you: https://www.bbc.co.uk/bitesize/tags/zhgppg8/year-5-and-p6-lessons/1
