Year 5 (Class 12)

Welcome to Mrs Grundy and Class 12’s web page!

Hello everyone, 

Welcome to our home learning zone, where I will be adding work each day for you to try whilst we’re at home. The work will be as similar to what you would be doing in school as possible, so it’s important for you to do as much as you can so we don’t miss out. 

Hope you’re ok everyone, 

Mrs Grundy

Happy New Year everyone! I hope you all had a lovely Christmas. As you know, from today we will be spending some time apart to make sure that we’re all really safe. This means we will be leaning from home. Mrs Bird and I are working hard to get things ready for you, and we have uploaded work for the rest of the week on here. It doesn’t matter who the work was uploaded by, everything on here is for you to have a go at. All we ask is that you try your best! I know it’s hard and sometimes there might be things that you find challenging but do what you can. Feel free to send me a message on here and I’ll get back to you as soon as I can. If you have friends who you know aren’t on google classroom yet, please give them a little reminder to log on. If anyone is struggling with logging in, they can email admin@smaaa.info and put GClassroom Reset as the subject. Speak to you soon everyone! The classroom is very quiet without you all! Mrs Grundy

Week 2 – w/b 11/01/2021 (scroll to the bottom of week 2 to find the work for week 1)

Maths – week 2 

We will be using the Oak National Academy to support us with our maths learning. There are videos to work from and online activities to complete. Just follow the link below to begin the lesson. If you would like to share a screenshot of the things you have completed with us then you can.

On the last slide at the end of the lesson it will say ‘If you would like to complete other lessons from your schedule, click ‘Schedule’ below. If you would like to see more lessons from this subject, click ‘Subject’ below.’ you do not need to follow this instruction. We will share the work that we want you to complete each day on your google classroom classwork page.

Maths day 1 – multiples and factors

Today we will refamiliarise ourselves with the concepts of multiples and factors. We will use the language of factors and multiples by giving examples, describing rectangular arrays and defining the terms. We will then model how to solve missing number puzzles requiring understanding of the language before letting you have a go independently.

https://classroom.thenational.academy/lessons/multiples-and-factors-6gr32d

week 2 lesson 1

Maths day 2 – factors and factor pairs

Today we will be learning how to work systematically to identify the correct number of factors and factor pairs for given numbers, using the notion of factor bugs to help us. We will then develop our learning further by proving that square numbers have an odd number of factors.

https://classroom.thenational.academy/lessons/factor-pairs-61k3cd

week 2 lesson 2

Maths day 3 – prime numbers

Today we will explore numbers with only two factors and define these as prime numbers. We will then play a game that involves making arrays and identifying prime numbers up to 20. Our independent task to conclude the lesson will require all prime numbers up to 100 to be identified by using a range of clues based on multiples and factors.

https://classroom.thenational.academy/lessons/prime-numbers-65j38e

week 2 lesson 3

Maths day 4 – factor and multiple chains

Today we will use our prior knowledge of multiples and factors to create chains, playing a game whilst investigating number patterns. We will then adapt the rules of the game to create alternative chains, being challenged to try and identify ever increasing lengths of chains.

https://classroom.thenational.academy/lessons/factor-and-multiple-chains-6gvp6c

week 2 lesson 4

Maths day 5 – multiplying and dividing by 10, 100 and 1000

Today we will be required to explain and demonstrate the process of multiplication and division by 10, 100 and 1000 using different visual representations. This understanding will then enable you to derive facts from known multiplication facts which you can represent and explain. The expectation is that by the end of this lesson you will be confidently able to explain and demonstrate how to multiply and divide by 10, 100 and 1000.

week 2 lesson 5

English – week 2 

For the next two weeks we will be using a booklet called ‘One Chance’ and working through different activities.

“BE CAREFUL WHAT YOU WISH FOR, YOU MAY RECIEVE IT”

Every week people dream of winning the lottery, they make a wish. Someone then wins a huge sum of money. At first this might seem like good news, but often it ends in misery or unhappiness. The sudden win changes lives. Friends and family may be lost, and people may not know who to trust. People may loose a sense of purpose when they don’t need to work anymore. The aim of this work is to explore and enjoy wishing stories, and hopefully by the end you can have go at writing one of your own.

We have chosen the activities that we think you can have a go at at home, so make sure you check below to find out which to do each day. You don’t need to print the book, just read the task and jot down your ideas on a piece of paper if you have one. If you’d like to take a picture of your work to send us we’d love to see it, but don’t worry if that’s not possible.

Literacy week 2 – One Chance

Day 1- page 2 and 3 – Just one wish and the downside

Day 2- page 5- The mirror of wishes

Day 3- page 7, 8 and 9- The story ‘One Chance’ 

Day 4- page 10- Word meaning

Day 5- page 14 and 15- likes and dislikes.

Science – week 2

We will be using the Oak National Academy to support us with our science learning. There are videos to work from and online activities to complete. Just follow the link below to begin the lesson. If you would like to share a screenshot of the things you have completed with us then you can.

In this lesson, we find out what happens to the arrangement and behaviour of particles during a change of state. Learn about the properties of solids, liquids and gases and how to identify changes of state.

On the last slide at the end of the lesson it will say ‘If you would like to complete other lessons from your schedule, click ‘Schedule’ below. If you would like to see more lessons from this subject, click ‘Subject’ below.’ you do not need to follow this instruction. We will share the work that we want you to complete each day on your google classroom classwork page.

PSHE – week 2 

Respect is an important part of any relationship we have. Having a consideration for other people and respecting them shows maturity. Have a look at the PowerPoint, then read over the scenarios. Think about which behaviours the people in the scenarios are showing, and consider what they could be doing differently and why. Use the ‘ways to show respect mat’ to help. For this activity, you don’t need to write anything down, but it might be nice to talk them through with someone at home if possible.

Computing – week 2

Each week we will share with you a series of creative STEM challenges. STEM stands for Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics. Throughout our computing topic this half term we will tackle code, maths, art, DT and problem solving challenges.

As most of you will be working from home we have tried to find activities that will not require technology that you may not have at home. You can however use any technology you have available to you at home to work through the challenges and to research different ways of completing the challenges.

Can you master problem solving?

Can work independently or as part of a team?

Can you use a variety of apps or resources?

Can you present your work in creative ways?

Can you build and create?

You can choose to complete any challenge from the cards available and can even complete more than one if you like! Take pictures of your attempts and share ways that you worked through the challenges and how you solved the problems.

Computing STEM week 2

DT – week 2 

The link below will take you to a YouTube tutorial video all about how to make different types of pop up cards.

You will see that the way that the paper is folded and stuck makes it move in different ways. Have a go at some of the different methods and see if you can use them to make your own original design of pop up card. Your card could have more than one part that pops up. If you can, share a photo or even a video of you opening and closing the card with us so that we can see how it moves. We can’t wait to see!

PE – week 2

Keeping active is really important to keep our body and mind healthy. We know lots of you will be missing clubs and teams that you are part of. We’ve found some YouTube channels that you might want to have a look though. It’s important that you find ways of keeping fit that you enjoy, so have look and see what suits you. We’ll keep these videos up now and you can access them for your PE lessons whenever you want to. If you do something else instead- that’s great, as long as you’re doing something. Have fun!

Week 1 – w/b 5/01/2021

Week 1 Maths

day 1 – finding factors

The link below will help you with your learning this week.

Click here

Factors are numbers which multiply together to make a product for example 2 x 5 = 10 2 and 5 are the factors in this calculation Use your knowledge of times tables to find the pairs of factors for the numbers on the sheets. The more factor pairs that you can find the more colourful your rainbow will be! You do not need to print the sheet to complete this activity – simply draw the rainbows onto paper.

day 2 – factor pairs

Factors are numbers which multiply together to make a product
for example 2 x 5 = 10
2 and 5 are the factors in this calculation
To find the factors of the numbers below you need to find all the pairs of numbers that multiply together to make a product.

day 3 – common factors 

The link below will help with your work in this lesson.

To find the factors of the numbers below you need to find all the pairs of numbers that multiply together to make a product.

day 4 – prime numbers

The link below will help with your learning in this lesson

Click here

Prime numbers are special numbers, greater than 1, that have exactly two factors, themselves and 1.
19 is a prime number. It can only be divided by 1 and 19.
9 is not a prime number. It can be divided by 3 as well as 1 and 9.
The prime numbers below 20 are: 2, 3, 5, 7, 11, 13, 17, 19.
Don’t forget: the number 1 is not a prime number as it only has one factor.
Use your understanding to shade all of the prime numbers on the 100 square and then answer the questions below.

Week 1 English

Day 1

Today’s English task is all about up levelling sentences. That just means making them better! If you are stuck with any grammar terms, try using BBC Bitesize to help you, I’ve saved the link below.

Click here

If you want to do any extra, try making your own simple sentence and up levelling it to make it better.

wk1d1 uplevelling sentences

Day 2

Today’s task is all about ADVERBS and ADVERBIAL PHRASES An adverbial phrase is the words in a sentence that tell the reader WHERE, WHEN and the ORDER of things. There are lots of adverbial phrases that you use every day without realising. Your task today is to sort the sentences on the sheet into the different areas

wk1d2 adverbials

Day 3

Today I’d like you to have a go at the reading comprehension. Read the text carefully and then answer the questions.

wk1d3 reading

Day 4

Each week I will give you some spellings to have a go at learning. You could also use this opportunity to practise your handwriting. I’d love to start giving people a pen when we’re back together so make sure your handwriting is looking good! Think about all the ways that we can practise spellings:
– pyramid
-backwards
-colours (if you have them)
-with your eyes closed
-with the wrong hand
Just make sure you’re copying the spelling correctly!

This weeks spellings are:
accident
accidentally
actual
actually
address
answer
appear
arrive

If you wanted to do extra, you could think of a silly story that uses as many of the words as possible.

Week 1 Science 

Within the file below you will find a bank of words which are used to describe materials in different ways. There may be some words that you have not seen before. Below the word bank, some tricky words have been selected for you and put into a table – use a dictionary (a book or online) to find the definitions of these words to complete the table.
Once you have found the definitions we would like you to find three things around your house that are solid, three that are liquid and three that are or contain a gas. Draw and label each thing and then pick three words from your word bank to describe each object.

Year 5 Science week 1

Week 1 Religious Education

day 1 – explore

Read through the information on the images and have a think about the questions to think about.
Think about your own mission and use what you have read and understand to create a plan for your own charity.

day 2 – reveal 

Read through the information below then use what you have read and understand to create a ‘wanted’ poster to attract suitable people to share Jesus’ mission. Indicate how they might be inspired to do this and give reasons for your choices and try to make links with any other scripture passages you have read.

Week 1 Local History

This half term’s history topic is Local History. In this topic we will be finding out all about Kirkby and it’s history. To start with, I’ll show you some maps. On all of the maps, the site where our school is now is at the centre. What I would like you to do, is study each map and see if you can answer these questions:
– What can you recognise on the modern map?
– Is there anything on the modern map that was not there on the older ones?
– Is there anything you can find that appears on all 4 maps?
– Which was the first map to show our school?
– What did you find interesting looking at the maps?

St Michael All Angels – 1894 St Michael All Angels – 1956 St Michael All Angels – 1990 St Michael All Angels – Modern

Week 1 DT – moving mechanisms

This half term we will be having a look at moving mechanisms.

A good example of a mechanism is a seesaw. In a seesaw, motion is transferred evenly across a providing there are equal amounts of force at each end.
Another example of a mechanism is a lever. Direction, strength and amount of movement to an object are all controlled by a lever.

Here are some examples of items which are considered to be mechanisms.
-Gears and gear trains
-Belt and chain drives
-Cam and followers
-Linkage
-Friction devices, including brakes and clutches
-Structural components, including a frame, fasteners, bearings, springs, lubricants
-Various elements of a machine, including splines, pins, and keys

Draw and label two examples of a mechanism and how you understand that they work. (You may want to use the examples given or you can find two of your own).

Once complete there is a video link below which shows you how to make a paper windmill. If you have the resources at home have a go at making your own.

Week 1 Spanish – Celebrations

Hola Clase!
Miss McKay has found some Spanish for us to have a go at. This week it is looking at the Epiphany, an important celebration in Spain. Below is a powerpoint all about the celebration. Create a poster about what you have learnt.

Celebration in Spain

Week 1 – PE

As we know, being active is really important for our body and mind. Teaching PE with us apart is quite tricky, so I have uploaded a few different exercise videos for you to try, you can choose which ones you find best for you. If you have other videos that you enjoy, feel free to let me know! The most important thing is that you have fun and get moving!

Week 1 PSHE

Our PSHE topic this half term is healthy relationships. To start with I’d like you think about all of the people you have a relationship with. It might be people you have a close relationship with, such as people in your family, or people that aren’t so close to you, such as dinner ladies or neighbours. You’d be surprised at home many people you have some sort of relationship with. What sort of relationship do you have with these people? Are they all positive ones? Have a look at the questions below…
