Year 5 and 6 Weeks 14/15/16 – 29th June onwards

There are two days of home learning for the two days your house is not in school. This learning is a separate entity to what we will be doing in class. For additional learning, please see the links provided in the attachment. All learning is beneficial, and revision of previous learning is crucial in supporting a deeper understanding.

Monday – Multistep problems
Tuesday – Read and interpret line graphs
Thursday – Draw line graphs
Friday – Use line graphs to solve problems
This week’s challenge is slightly different (much easier to set up!) as you need very minimal equipment and is just 1 challenge to repeat 3 times and submit your best score! It’s a small circuit exercise. Check the activity card below for details and support videos!

Additional Learning Opportunities:

** NEWLY ADDED**The Great Indoors has a range of activities that are easily managed within the home thanks to the Scouts.

  • Use this wonderful site: http://www.pobble365.com/as a daily stimulus for talking and writing.  Activities under the photo – a new photo every day! 🙂
  • A fantastic resource– Problem of the day (updated daily during March)
  • Brain break activities: Browse the selection of options to keep fitness up
  • A whole host of brilliant activities (many with powerpoint presentations to meet parental teaching needs) for all subjects that can be found under a variety of headings here! It’s well worth a look as it has been made free during the isolation period!

Home projects

  • Keep a moon diary: Draw the shape of the moon each evening for a month (weather permitting). A lunar cycle is 28 days, so during the month observe each phase of the moon and see how it changes throughout the period. Template can be found 
  • Imagine…An alien spaceship has crash landed in your back garden. What happens next? Write your own story. You can use ideas from space stories, films and your own knowledge to help you. Remember to describe settings and characters to bring your story (and alien) to life!

– Now storyboard your story into a comic strip. Template(s) here.

– How about a play script? Would the story work on stage? How might you adapt the story to include stage directions and performance?

– Get the family involved by giving them each a role in the story and act it out together!!



Our class padlet, for book reviews, can be accessed here – please  add whenever you finish a book you’d like to share with everyone in our class. 

SATs: You can find a list of recommended texts here to further support your child. Miss Roberts and I are particularly fond of the 10-minute ‘SAT Buster’ books – a quick and easy to use tool to build confidence and speed in your child’s thinking.

Maths: Children should continually practise their times tables at home – the Top Marks website has some great challenges, which the children are used to in class. Additionally, they also have a smart phone app called ‘Hit the Button’ (at a cost of £2.29) which I highly recommend to support mental strategies.
