The planning below is for 23rd March - 3rd April 2020. This was our first response to providing home learning and we have since revised our format. The updated planning will be posted above.
At present, many of the resources and activities here are what you will have received in your pack. This area of our website is likely to be subject to change in the coming days. Please refer to your letter from Miss Rogers to help support your home learning set up.
Look after yourselves and keep smiling.
Year 5 Home Education Pack
Here are a list of resources you can use for your home education learning for the time being. Please refer to the timetable within your master yellow pack as a suggestion to when you could complete these tasks.
- You have been assigned a number of Education City activities. Use your log-in details to access them (Knight Typer – spelling word list and Speller performance – commonly misspelt words)
- www.spellingframe.co.uk – Year 5 and 6 – Spelling Rule 37 to 62. Select a game to practise the spellings. You can then select the spelling practise or print off a spelling list to test your child.
- We have included a Year 5 Statutory Spelling Word list from the National Curriculum, which you can practise from. We have also included a Year 5 Statutory Spelling wordsearch pack
- Use your child’s yellow spelling book to revisit previously given spellings to see how much they have remembered. The children are very good at learning for a test but can they put the correct spelling into a sentence? E.g. I am excited to visit a foreign country.
- Don't forget to visit the Great Binfields Primary School website English page to download a 'Super Spellings Strategy ' pack for creative ideas to practise the spellings.
We have set a number of activities on Education City and Abacus for you to enjoy:
- Education City - Deep Space Line – Interpret Line Graphs
- Education City - Vacation, vacation, vacation – Interpret tables and timetables
- Education City - Factor or Fiction – Common Factors
- Education City - Game on – addition
- Abacus – Get the Yeti multiple and divide by 10, 100, 1000
- Abacus - Lava Drama – Place Value
- Abacus - Marching Madness – Time
- Access your Times Table Rockstars account so you can practise your Times Table fluency all the way up to the 12 times tables.
- Visit www.topmarks.co.uk and select a Key Stage 2 Maths Games to enjoy.
- Year 5 Multiplication and Division workbook
Music - Egyptian Chart Toppers
Listen to ‘We will rock you’ by Queen. https://youtu.be/-tJYN-eG1zk
- Can you keep in time with the music by doing the ‘Stamp, stamp, clap’ ostinato rhythm?
- Can you remember what ostinato means? If not, please look it up!
Singing & Playing
Don’t try to deny it, Mrs Irons knows this is your favourite Spring Time Song:
‘Spring Chicken’ https://youtu.be/IEey4LZLeGw
- Practise this song and then teach someone at home the actions whilst you sing.
Making your own music
- If you have an iPad ask permission to download the Garage Band App.
- Try composing a song of your own.
- You can use the chords of F, C, Dm and Bflat, loop the chords and add some new instruments.
- Choose your favourite song at the moment and rewrite the lyrics to make the song all about the Egyptians.
- Remember our Egyptian song using the tune from ‘A Million Dreams’?
Egyptians came from Egypt
They built a lot of pyramids
They liked to take their brains out when they die!
Instrumentalists: Don't forget to practise.
Little and often is best and fun!
In Geography, we have been learning all about the amazing features and creatures of the Amazon Rainforest and other biomes and habitats around the world:
In Science, Year 5 are learning all about how living things are classified.
- Create a timeline about the life and work of Carl Linnaeus 'the father of classification'. You might find this video useful https://ed.ted.com/on/90vRVJZ6
- Test your classification skills by observing, recording and classifying some of the plants and animals that can be found on your doorstep. You might want to take inspiration from botanical illustrations from the Natural History Museums online collection.
