Welcome to Tawny Owl Class
Our class teachers are Mr Adfield and Miss Harris.
We are a Year 5 class.
Dear Parents and Children,
Please find below the daily resources for maths and spellings. With regards to the spellings, you can use the activity sheets to practise keywords from the statutory word mats. Choose ones you are not familiar with or have difficulty spelling, even if that means looking at words from the lower year groups. Withing the zip file are the Year 5 and 6 statutory spellings in alphabetical order with handwriting practise as well.
You will also find the KS2 home-learning grid which has a range of English, Art, Geography and Music ideas to complete. Please do feel free to come up with your own ideas as well and I look forward to seeing your work through Class Dojo and when we return to school, hopefully in the not-to-distant future. Take care of yourselves and be good for your parents :)!
For today's English I would like us to practise using dialogue (speech) for part of the Hobbit story. There is a brief powerpoint to go through to remind you of some of the features. The key part that many of you are forgetting is the punctuation before the speech starts and before the final speech mark, so please check that carefully in your work today.
Then, watch this short clip from The Hobbit where the dwarves unexpectedly arrive at Bilbo's house.
Use this to write a section (I'm not expecting the whole thing) of the story that includes what the characters are saying.
MATHS ACTIVITIES - MyMaths
Monday - multiplying by 10 and 100
Tuesday - dividing by 10 and 100
Wednesday - short multiplication and division revision
Monday - modelling fractions and percentages
Tuesday - Fractions, decimals and percentages
Wednesday - percentages of amounts (2 days)
Here is a useful video for finding percentages of amounts:
Thursday - Use the method shown in the video above to find percentages that are multiples of 10 e.g. 70% of 70. For an extra challenge have a go at the 25% of an amount sheet below. Remember, 25% is the same as 1/4. A quick way to find a quarter:
- divide the amount by 4 or...
- half the amount and half it again
For a tougher challenge, find 1,5, 10 and 25% of an amount.
Everyday there is also a free additional lesson that would be useful to keep brushing up on your skills and extending your maths knowledge:
It has lessons for both Year 3 and 4 and 5 and 6 so try which ever you feel comfortable with (but also challenge yourself and put yourself in the stretch zone if you can).
