Hello Year 5 or 'Helô' as they say in Welsh!


Wow! It has been wonderful to see many of your stories. They have been so exciting, jammed packed with detail about Ancient Egypt. We know you will continue this brilliant work in Year 6 and get better and better. So we are in the last three days of term... We haven't be at school properly for 4 months. Can you believe it? You have done so well, so we hope you enjoy the different activities we have planned for the next three days. Go Year 5!yes


Word of the Day: Keel 

Look up what the word means, what word group it belongs to, place it accurately into a sentence and work out what prefixes/ suffixes could be added (remember this last one doesn't always count!). 


09:00 - 09:30: Reading.

Read for 15mins or to the end of the next chapter in your book.

Read The Diver. Look up the words: 'keel', 'furled', 'barnacles'. What do they mean?


09:30 - 10:30: Mathematics. 

We have completed all of our topics in Maths for the year - wow, well done you, Year 5! laugh

To warm-up, spend some time on TT Rockstars 

Have a go at The Mystery of the Festival Camping Choas Maths Booklet

  • This task looks at lots of different areas of Maths, many of which we will have already covered. When you complete each task, the answer will provide you with a clue that will lead you the culprit! 


10:30 - 10:45: Break/ Snack/ Exercise. 

Sports Day Practice: Plan a sports afternoon for your family! You will need 4-5 activities. This could be skipping, an obstacle course, or beat the goalie! How will you score them? What refreshments will you offer? Will you have a rest station?


10:45 - 11:15: SPaG:

Visit the website 

  • Look at the picture dedicated to today (or you can choose a picture that you like, by clicking back through previous days!). Using the poster on relative clauses, write some sentences including relative clauses, using the picture as your focus or inspiration! 


11:15 - 12:15: English/Writing.  The Diver! 

Complete the Text, Sentence and Word sections of The Diver


12:15 - 1:15: Lunch/Exercise. 

Try to get some fresh air if it is safe and appropriate to do so.


1:15- 1.30: Quiet Reading Time.

We have now finished all our audio reading texts. So please use this time to read your own book or information books about Ancient Egypt.  


1:30 - 2:45: Enquiry: Rounding Off! 

Congratulations everyone, you have completed your Ancient Egyptian Work!

Let's go back to our question: What if you were pharaoh for a day? 

  • Draw a picture of yourself as a pharaoh! Could you add a photo of your face? If you were pharaoh for the day, what would you do?  
  • Create a plan for your day as the King of Egypt or brainstorm all the ideas you have around your picture. Use all the knowledge you have acquired over the last 7 weeks to help you! 


2:45 - 3:00: Philosophical Question. 

Today's Question: Would you rather be a mountain or a river? Why? 

Spend some time during dinner or at some point in the evening, discussing this with the other people at home! We're sure there will be some interesting responses.

We look forward to hearing about your responses! 


Yesterday's Q: Should men and women get paid the same in all sports? 

Mrs. Hudson: My gut feeling to this is yes, as I believe in equality for all. But a good example of this is tennis, where women play 3 sets to win a match and men play 5 sets to win. So should they get paid the same when they don't play for a similar amount of time? 

Miss Martin: If the basic elements of the game are the same, then yes I think they should be. We're trying to move forward and encourage equality and opportunity for all and this should be the same in sport as well! 


We look forward to hearing your responses! Log in on Tuesday for more wonderful learning! Have a great evening.
