Welcome back to our home learning blog. Thank you to everyone who emailed us yesterday at email@example.com. Even if you aren't able to send us photos of your work, it would still be lovely to hear from you. Remember that you can also email us with any questions or worries that you have.
Lesson 1 - Maths
Have a go at these arithmetic races. You can do them with a partner, or just have a go at all the parts yourself. See how quickly you can do them.
Today, we are looking at common factors.
First, watch this video:
Now spend 15 minutes on Mathletics. Either complete activities that your teacher has set, or have a go at the Multiplication and Division activities.
Then spend 15 minutes practising your times tables on Times Tables Rockstars.
Lesson 2 - Literacy
Spend some time practising your apostrophe skills that you have been learning in school. Remember that apostrophes can be used for two reasons:
We are going to move to lesson 4 in the Demon Dentist unit so that we can develop the skill of retrieving and inferring information from the text in order to answer questions. If you would like to also do lesson 3 as an extra bit of learning first, click here. Or continue to today's lesson where we will read the beginning of chapter 13.
Now, spend 30 minutes on Active Learn. Choose a book that your teacher has set you and read it carefully. Each time you see a little green bug, click on it and answer the questions. You will earn points that you can redeem in your account.
Lesson 3 - RE
This term, we are going to be exploring the question 'If God is everywhere, why go to a place of worship?' using the religions of Christianity, Hinduism and Judaism. Today we will be learning about Hindu places of worship and how they are used.
Watch this video to take a tour of a stunning mandir in London.
Click on the link below to watch a clip of a boy showing us around his home shrine:
Now, watch each clip again.
What are the similarities and differences in the way each place is used?
You can create a double bubble like the one below to show the similarities and differences. Write your ideas in the bubbles.
Finally, can you explain what each of these words mean?
End of the day - Julianne's story making project
You are invited to take part in a school story project called 'One upon a Phoenix...'. We are all going to be storytellers using drawings, role play and our most important tool, our imaginations! Every week, Julianne will send out a piece of the story, which we will post on our Year 5 Home Learning blog, with tasks for you to do.
Email your pictures to firstname.lastname@example.org and we will pass them onto Julianne. If you can’t email them, keep them in a folder and we will share them when we are reunited back in school.
A special message from Lauren!

That's all for today Year 5.
