Year 5 & 6 Homework

13 July 2020: Home learning

Posted on Sunday 12 July 2020 by Mrs Hogarth

Good morning.

We hope you’ve all had a lovely weekend and that you got up to some nice things. Maybe send your class teacher an email this week before the summer holiday starts – tell us what you’ve been up to.

Here is your learning for today…

Year 5 Maths

Starter

Click on the link above for today’s starter. This game allows you to practice your rounding skills. Select the option that you feel confident with. If you would like a challenge – try out the decimal numbers.

Your learning for today is about translation. This first lesson goes over the learning you will have done in year 4.

Year 6 Maths

Before starting your main lesson, take 15 minutes to sharpen your times tables skills on Times Tables Rockstars.

This next lesson will teach you have to calculate and represent ratio.

Year 5/6 Reading

Today is our read for pleasure lesson. Choose a book, magazine, newspaper or perhaps an online article to read for your own pleasure. If you have recently read something that you have particularly enjoyed, you could write a book review to recommend it to others. Think about what information is useful to the reader in a review.

Year 5/6 Art

Your learning today is all about art. Graffiti is one of my favourite styles of art. It is controversial and, in some cases, illegal but I love the style of it. I also love how it often tackles issues in society. One famous graffiti artist is Banksy.

Today, I’d like you to read this information about Banksy and then have a go at creating your own piece of art – remember to link it to an issue in society.

Send your class teacher your finished masterpieces.

Hey everyone

We hope you’ve had a great week. And, we hope you have a happy and healthy weekend, too – fingers crossed for a bit of sunshine!

Thanks to everyone who has been in touch this week – we really do love hearing how you’re doing.

Here’s your learning for today. As always, if you have any questions contact your class teacher.

Y5 Maths

Log on to TT Rockstars and test your multiplication skills.

Your learning for today is about multiplying decimals by 10, 100 and 1000.

Y6 Maths

Here are the answers to yesterday’s questions.

Your final challenge of the week is to take on all four levels of The Swamp of Statistics on Guardians: Defenders of Mathematica.

Y5,6 Reading

If you’ve been in my class, you know how much I love a good debate. I think it helps us engage with the world around us, articulate our thoughts and is a really valuable life skill. Also, to gain information, we often have to use our reading skills. Today, I’d like you to read this information and form your own opinion – you could even debate it with someone else.

Then, I’d like you to create a short poster or presentation (or anything else you can think of) to put forward your viewpoint.

Y5,6 Topic

We are going to familiarise ourselves further on one of our protective characteristics with this black lives matter lesson. This is a large global movement supporting the lives of black people.

Why are we doing this?

In Scholes (Elmet) Primary School, we know that racism is never ok and is not tolerated. Black lives matter supports our values, and it is important we are aware with current issues around the world. Complete this video lesson.

Hi everyone

We hope you’re all OK and are managing to stay happy and healthy. It was a big day for Y5 yesterday as they found out which class they’ll be in next year – commiserations if you’re in Mrs Hogarth’s class again (it won’t be that bad!).

And Y6, thanks so much for the amazing response to sending in baby pictures. It’s going to be quite a big video so it will take some time for me to put it all together and edit it properly. I will make sure you have it before the end of next week!

Here’s your learning for today…

Y5 Maths

Starter

Click on the link above for today’s starter.

Your learning today is about subtracting decimals with different decimal places.

Y6 Maths

Now that you’re an expert on statistics and percentages, answer these White Rose questions. If, like me, you don’t own a protractor then skip the second part of question 7.

Starter

Your learning for today is about subtracting decimals.

Year 6 Maths 

Our lesson on finding an average will be very meaningful. Wait. Here’s a better one. Don’t let anyone call you average. It’s just mean.

Year 5/6 Reading

As this would have been our ‘sports week’ at school if all was normal, I thought we could use this as our learning platform. Choose a sport that you are particularly fond of and find an article about this sport. This could be something in the news, an online article about a team or player, the rules of the sport or anything else you can think of. Once you have your chosen piece of sporting information, create a RIC for other pupils to answer. As a challenge, see If you can create more questions after your RIC. Send your results into your class teacher – we look forward to using them next week!

Year 5/6 Living & Learning

Your lesson today is a Living & Learning lesson. You will be focusing on one of our 8Rs for learning – Mr Catherall thinks it might be the most important one! Do you agree? Watch this video and follow the instructions. You can access the website and resources you need here. Enjoy!

Whole school sporting activities

Sadly, our favourite events of the year – sports days – cannot take place in it’s normal format this year. However, the next best thing is to take part in a virtual sports day and we’re excited to be joining the West Yorkshire Virtual School Games Sports Day on Tuesday 7th July. The day will involve the children taking part in multiple activities with the chance to compete against other schools across the county. There will be a number of prizes on offer too.
What do you need to do?
Have a look at the guidance for parents/carers to help you prepare for the day.
When does it take place?
There is a live opening ceremony shown here at 10am on Tuesday 07 July and the activities can be completed at any point in the day.
Is this just for children who are back at school?
No – the activities can be done by children at school and at home. The sports day will be one of your child’s home learning activities on the day.
What are the activities?
The parent guide gives details of all the activities and instructions will also be given on the video released on the day.
Do children have to complete all the activities?
We would encourage the children to have a go at as many as they can but they don’t have to complete them all.
How do we submit results?
This is the link to submit results (live from 10am on 07 July up till 12pm on the 08 July). All children’s results will be added to their school score.
We would love to see the virtual sports day in action so please share any photos of your children taking part and good luck to everyone!
