# Monday 20th April – Year 5

Hello Year 5,

We hope that you have had a lovely Easter and didn’t eat too much chocolate!

Maths – We want you to start thinking of properties of shapes and today want you to concentrate on 2-D shapes. ‘Properties’ of a shape means the qualities that it has – what makes it that shape.

The following is an example to get you started. Here are the properties of a square:

A square has:

• 4 straight sides that are equal in length
• 4 identical angles that are 90° (remember that this is a right angle)
• 4 lines of symmetry
• Opposite sides of the square are parallel
• The diagonals are equal length

List the properties of the following 2-D shapes:

• Rectangle
• Circle
• Parallelogram
• Trapezium
• Rhombus

When writing the properties, make sure that you understand and vocabulary that you use – don’t copy from the internet!

What do the term ‘polygon’, ‘regular’ and ‘quadrilateral’ mean?

Challenge – is a square a rectangle? Refer back to the properties of each shape and explain your reasoning.

English – Revise relative clauses – you could use this link:

https://www.bbc.co.uk/bitesize/topics/zwwp8mn/articles/zsrt4qt

Write 3 sentences that use different relative clauses.

ICT –

Discuss the following question with your family:

Now try this:

Art – Find out about Anthony Goldsworthy. Create your own art work in his style.

We are really missing you all.

From Mrs Millard, Mrs Leeming and Mrs Munro XX

1 .You should tell an adult and take a break from the chat so the you don’t have to do it all bye your self and you will have a parent to guide you.

2 .I am being mind full and creative and active .

Thank you Dan – did you get a chance to look at the other work today?

• 20th April 2020 at 9:54 am

English,

Eg.
I won’t stand next to the man who smells like he’s never washed. ( In this sentence the word who is a relative pronoun and gives you more information about the man)

• 20th April 2020 at 2:07 pm

Thank you Simar – did you manage 3 sentences including a relative clause?

• 20th April 2020 at 10:10 am

Good morning Mrs Millard,
This is my English for today,

Relative clauses,

I found the dog that had spots was laying in the sun.
You found the tree that was colourful was in the forest.
We saw the lake and it was calm which was at the park.

• 20th April 2020 at 2:08 pm

Lovely – thank you Lydia.

Maths,

Rectangle- 4 sides
4 vertices
2 lines of symmetry
4 right angles

Circle- 1 side
Many lines of symmetry

Parallelogram- 4 sides
4 vertices
1 line of symmetry

Trapezium- 4 sides
4 vertices
2 acute angles
2 obtuse angles
1 line of symmetry

Rhombus- 2 lines of symmetry
4 vertices
4 sides
2 acute angles and 2 obtuse angles

• 21st April 2020 at 2:51 pm

Thank you Simar.

Tell me more about the sides of a rectangle.

Parallelogram – check your comment about symmetry. Why do you think that it is called a
parallelogram?

Any parallel sides in a trapezium?

What’s special about the sides of a rhombus?

Good morning Mrs Millard,
this is my English for today,

what is a relative clause ; well a relative clause is something that adds extra information that starts with witch , that , whom , who , who’s.

for example,
I found my sister that is on a tree witch is by a sea.
There was a rainbow that was on the window witch I drew.
there is a farm that has sheep witch I visit.

• 20th April 2020 at 2:11 pm

Thank you Jessica.
Remember – witch is with a broomstick – I think you meant which.
Don’t forget to begin sentences with a capital letter. Do you think that your first sentence sounds better without the ‘that is’?

ICT

1. Leave it alone and tell an adult

2. Option C

3. Be mindful, help others
Connect ,communicate
Be active, don’t spend too much
Get creative, use lots of resources
Give to others, share

• 20th April 2020 at 2:12 pm

Thank you Simar – don’t spend too much what??

• 20th April 2020 at 10:44 am

Quadrilateral – any shape with 4 sides
Regular- a common structure of shape

• 20th April 2020 at 2:15 pm

What’s important about the sides in a quadrilateral apart from there being 4? Check the definition of ‘regular’.
You have looked at the challenge Simar but you haven’t completed the first bit! I was expecting a lot more detail!

hello Mrs milliard,
this is my maths for today,

the property’s of a rectangle is
2 long equal lines in length and 2 short equal lines in length
2 lines of summitry
each opposing sides are parallel

the property’s of a circle is
1 circler line
infinite lines of summitry
no sides are parallel

the property’s of a trapezium is
4 different lines
1 line of summitry
no sides are parallel

the property’s of a parallelogram is
2 equal sides and 2 other equal sides
1 line of summitry
2 parallel sides

the property’s of a rhombus is
2 equal sides and 2 other equal sides
1 line of summitry
2 parallel sides

• 20th April 2020 at 2:21 pm

Hello Jessica. Well done for this.

Rectangle – I wouldn’t describe the lines as long or short but longer/shorter.
Trapezium – does it have any parallel sides?
Parallelogram – has 2 pairs of parallel sides.
Rhombus – has 4 sides equal in length. Often called a ‘diamond’ but ‘rhombus is the correct mathematical word.

Remember spelling – property/properties. The properties are…..

English,a relative clause is were it allows you to put extra information in your sentence. 1.the girl who tripped over yesterday. 2.A elephant which got kicked out. 3.Mrs Leeming that teaches me is sick today.

MATHS, Rectangle, .quadrilateral,all sides are parallel,4 lines of symmetry,4 angles that are 90°and there right angled. CIRCLE,0 sides,not parallel at all,lots of lines of symmetry and has curved sides. PARALLELOGRAM,quadrilateral,3 lines of symmetry,76° and parallel on 2 sides. TRAPEZIUM,1line of symmetry,4 sides and a quadrilateral also it’s not parallel.

• 20th April 2020 at 12:30 pm

ICT, You should tell a parent and do what they say not ignore them and anyway that 8 year old cant be on the internet at that age.But maybe he’s not 8 and is a grown adult. STRANGER DANGER!!!

• 21st April 2020 at 2:55 pm

Thank you Dhanshri,

Circle – side or sides?
Parallelogram – do they all have lines of symmetry? What’s 76 degrees?
Trapezium – can any of the lines be parallel?

Look at your first line – there/they’re!!

ICT
I would tell my Mum or Dad about the message that has popped up and I would also block them from being able to send me any more messages.
I think you should tell an adult about the chat and what is happening. I think this is the most sensible thing to do.

Hello Mrs Millard, this is my English. A relative clause is were it allows you to put extra information in your sentence. 1.The girl who tripped over yesterday. 2.A bear which escaped the zoo. 3.Mrs leeming my teacher that was sick today.

• 20th April 2020 at 2:23 pm

Well done Lydia. It’s great to see you using the term ‘congruent’.
Tell me something about parallel lines in a parallelogram.

• 20th April 2020 at 2:41 pm

In the parallelogram the parallel lines are opposite each other.

• 20th April 2020 at 5:03 pm

You are so alert today – responding so promptly. Well done,

Mrs Millard X

• 20th April 2020 at 2:42 pm

It’s good to hear from you Leon.
Well done – I enjoyed reading about what you have been doing at home. I hope you had a lovely break over Easter and are keeping well.
