# Monday 30th March – Year 5 (2)

Good morning Year 5 – I hope you and your families are all keeping well.

Here are your tasks for today:

1. Reading

a) Tell us what you have been reading for the last week. We need to see:

• The days that you have read

• What you have read (book, pages etc.)

• A brief description or comment about your reading

• Anything that you have learnt

• Any other comments, questions or queries that you may have.

b) Write a book review for a book that you have recently read. This should include:

• Title, author and whether it is fiction/non-fiction

• Star rating (out of 10) and reasons why

• A description of the book – describe characters, plot, settings

• What you liked/didn’t like

• Who you would recommend this book to. Who would it be suitable for? Age/interests

• An illustration from the book. If it is fiction, use your imagination and the description in the text to create your own illustration of any scene. This can go into your home learning pack.

• Examples of literary effects – similes, metaphors, alliteration, personification, onomatopoeia

• The story could be better if…….

2. Maths

Show examples of written calculation (all 4 operations) to an adult, explaining your methods. Choose your own numbers – remember to challenge yourself and don’t pick any that you can calculate mentally.

• Addition – the Year 5 expectation is that you add numbers of more than 4 digits.

Extra challenge – can you also try adding numbers with a different amount of digits, adding more than 2 numbers and also including decimal numbers (maybe with a different amount of decimal places)?

• Subtraction – again, the Year 5 expectation is subtracting numbers of more than 4 digits. Try to ensure that you will need to exchange with the numbers that you choose.

Extra challenge – subtracting numbers with a different amount of digits, using decimal numbers with a differing amount of decimal places.

• Multiplication – the Year 5 expectation is that you will multiply a number up to 4-digit by a one and two digit number (short multiplication is when you multiply your number by one digit and long multiplication is when you multiply it by two digits).

• Division – the Year 5 expectation is that you will divide a number up to 4-digit by a one digit number.

Extra challenge – can you also divide it by a 2-digit number?

3. Geography

What are the threats to our natural resources? How many ideas can you think of?

Have fun and well done to those of you who are regularly completing you activities and posting each day – keep up the great work!

Hi miss l have read HARRY POTTER and yeah see you soon

Have you completed the task properly George?

So miss l have been reading harry potter so l think this is fiction because l have read it l think this could of been a better book because it was not that scary because l like scary books not boring book’s so yeah bye

Yeah??

Check your capital letters George!

So what l decided is l am going to do someverything timetable 1×1= 2×2=4 3×3=6 4×4 =16 5×5 =25 6×6 =

36 7×7 =49 8×8 =64. 9×9=81 10×10=1000 now some adding so let’s get on with it so 12+12=24. 42+42=84 80+12 =92

Have you shown an adult your written calculation methods – those that we have been looking at all year?

Maths

addition-

6453+2823=9273

3456+1234=4640

subtraction-

327-123=104

145-123=22

multiplication-

322×6=1932

455×3=1715

division-

144 divided by 12=12

132 divided by 12=11

I would argue that your division and subtraction examples could be done mentally – do you agree?

Geography:

Smoking

Global Warming

Household Waste

Pollution

Waste paper

Hello Mrs Millard,

Geography

I think that pollution and overuse use of natural resources like wood and gas could cause threats to the natural world.

I have emailed you my journal, reading record pictures, book review and my maths. Please could I have an example of dividing by a two digit number.

Love Lydia

Thank you Lydia. Any 2-digit number that you can think of eg) 236 divided by 23, 1045 divided by 16 etc.
