Hi Year 5
Ready for Year 6 in September here are some knowledge organisers for Science, History and maths. These will be our first topics, use them to research all about the topic.
For history, what effect has the industrial revolution had on Tameside in particular?
For Science, can you learn the key vocabulary and practise classifying vertebrates e.g. mammals, birds, fish, reptiles, and amphibians - this will recap what you learnt in year 4.
For Maths - practise your column addition, column subtraction, column multiplication and short division (bus stop) plus your times tables and division facts using TTrockstarrs. I will attach some maths sheets above.

Year 5 Home Learning 29th June
Week starting 22nd June
It has been good to hear from so many of you this week. I have seen some great poems and Haikus. Some of you found the Maths a real challenge and thanks for getting in touch to ask for help. It was also good to see some of you face to face when you can to pick up work. If you are looking for something a bit different from the school work why not look at the BBC Bitesize daily and complete some of the challenges set there. This can be accessed on the iplayer. Another good place to look for a change is OAK academy who do a daily schedule of work or lessons on particular subjects. This week's English is on Information texts and there are some lessons for this on Oak Academy. It's great to see children's work on Dojos however if for any reason this is not possible just put up a quick note to let me know what they have done. More importantly let me know if they are struggling with anything.
In school this week we have been focusing on our 8 times table. Could you write down as much of your 8 times table as you can in 1 minute remember to write the whole thing - e.g. 3x 8 - 24 not just 24. It doesn't have to be in order so you can write 10x8 =80 first. Now practice for 5 minutes every day and see how many you can do on Friday - let me know how you get on. If this is too easy try going beyond 12 0r try the 80 x table or even the 0.8 times table.
The topic booklet is on line graphs. Here are some videos to help (sorry couldn't find any without the accents - if you find anything better let me know) Please don't feel you have to download the booklet most of it you can do directly from a screen.
If you need any more support please get in touch
This week we are looking at Information Texts (Non Chronological Reports. There are a series of 5 lessons on Oak Academy
These are really good, If you are able I would do these instead of the worksheets below.
Alternatively, There are some comprehensions and writing tasks attached to do.
Start off with the comprehensions. The birds are the easier ones and the sharks more difficult. In each case their are three levels. It is worth starting at the easier one and looking to see why the other texts are better. If you can read the text with your child. Work on expression and fluency. Discuss any words they are unsure about. Repeat this a few times so they become familiar with the text. This will really help with their reading fluency.
If the reading is all they do, that is fine as it is really important that they build up that fluency and vocabulary. In the long run this will help with their writing.
The children can then have a go at writing their own report on anything they like. If they send it to me I will have a look and see if I can find ways they can make it better. The report should have an introduction about the topic in general and then a subtitle for each paragraph which gives me information about one part of the topic. Look at the texts on the comprehension for guidance. You can also include pictures and diagrams with captions, bullet points and amazing facts boxes. Try to use questions as your sub headings.
Think of your favorite topic. E.g. Horses or football. Tell me what it is in two sentence. Describe it in three sentences. Tell me one thing about it in 3 sentences. Tell me another thing about it in another 3 sentences. Tell me two amazing facts about your topic.
Make sure all your sentences have capital letters and full stops. How many different types of punctuation can you include? Can you add extra adjectives or use because, although, while when, if in the writing.. Could you look at starting sentences with some of these?
Can you put the following historical periods in order (There are some cards for you to down load which may help ?)
Romans Stone Age Victorians Vikings Georgians Anglo Saxons Dinosaurs Iron age Tudors Bronze Age
Where would the following world periods fit in?
Greeks Mayans Egyptians Indus Valley Shang Dynasty Incas Romans
Can you choose any one of these and find out some events in the period then put those into a timeline
Go out and collect as many different leaves from trees as you can? Split them into two groups according to a category of your own. E.g. big and small. Now take each group and split them into another two groups. If you can split them even further so you only have one leaf in each group. Now use your groups to describe some of the leaves. Can you find out the names of the trees the leaves have come from?
Work Beginning Week 15th June
Thank you everyone who has been in touch this week. It has been really good to hear from you all. I hope I was of some assistance to those of you who asked for it. If not please get in touch again.
This week in Maths we are doing statistics. If you are still struggling with the time work off please feel free to continue with this as it is a very important skill for all children. The booklet provides guidance but if you do need support please ask
This week week we are doing poetry based around the work of the poet Alan Ahlberg. Practice learning the poems out loud. Can you get an adult to show you how to put expression in? Can you act out the poems (you could even make a film of yourself and send it to me!) The last activity asks you to have a go at writing your own version I would love to see them. As with last week always think have you used the best word could there be a better one? If they give me permission I will share with you some of the ones done in class. A version of these lessons is on BBC Bitesize so a couple of you may have done them already so I will also share a different exercise.
In geography this week if you have access to google Earth can you pan down onto Dukinfield and see if you can find your own house? Alternatively you could use google maps. I have also attached an aeriel photograph of the area around the school as well as a map.
What can you spot?
Can you find places that are important to you on both maps?
Can you use the terms left and right and/or North South East and West to describe a route around the area to show people where you live.
Could you draw your own map of this?
What do you like about where you live?
How would you improve the area where you live?
