# Friday 1st May – Year 5

Bienvenido a Mayo!  Welcome to May!

English

Let’s do the next section of our non-chronological text.  Find out some facts about clothing in Ancient Greece.  Then write your section.

Remember you need a title,  maybe subtitles,  possible a diagram or picture, rhetorical questions.  Challenge-  can you include a glossary?

The aim is to have a full non-chronological page written by the end of next week.

So you can start putting your introduction, the paragraph from Tuesday and today onto paper.

You don’t need to send me a picture of the whole page yet- but you can do if you want some help with it or some feedback.

Today you can just type your paragraph onto the blog if you prefer,  just remember next week I will want to see the whole page.

Here is the email again, in case you do want to email me anything

Watch this video to remind yourself how we find the perimeter of a compound shape (a shape which can be split into 2 or more other shapes)

Now use what we learnt today and yesterday to help you solve these problem.

Drama

The RSC has a Macbeth workshop on today from 11-12 on YouTube, you can find out about behind the scenes and ask some questions.

In ancient Greece, The most popular materials were wool and linen. In the later era of Ancient Greece, the wealthy people started wearing cotton and silk. Ancient Greeks wore leather sandals but most of the time they went out barefoot. Most of the clothing was white but sometimes they died the clothes using plants and insects.

• 1st May 2020 at 12:28 pm

I love the use of your time conjunctions especially later era. I think you might need a comma before you use ‘but’ in sentences 3 and 4. and do you need a capital for the in the first sentence? I think you might have added the time conjunction afterwards and forgot to change the t.
Well researched, and your tone is perfect for a non-chronological text!

• 1st May 2020 at 10:03 am

A lot of the time ancient Greeks were barefoot ,mostly at home its rare they didn’t wear shoes outside. When wearing footwear the most popular was them wearing leather sandals, wealthy Greeks wore more precious and expensive jewellery , made from gold and silver .they wore rings necklaces and earrings .

• 1st May 2020 at 12:31 pm

Great researching Evie. Well done for starting with a time adverbial. Have another read of sentence 1, it doesn’t quite flow. I think there needs to be a couple more commas (when wearing footwear is a clause) and at least 1 more capital in your writing.

Clothing
The Ancient Greeks wore woollen fabric. It was hot almost all year so they wore loose light clothing. Rich people wore tunics that were brightly coloured and poor people had to wear all white. They wore leather sandals or boots on their feet. Ladies had to wear their tunics down to their ankles. They also wore their hair in plaits that were wrapped around their heads. Women liked to wear headbands made of metal or ribbon.

• 1st May 2020 at 12:39 pm

Great non-chronological text Lydia. Good use of the word tunic. You’ve got a few clauses in there, do you think some commas might help your audience to read the text clearly?

• 1st May 2020 at 12:47 pm

I have purple penned my work. Does it sound better?

Yes, well done!

• 1st May 2020 at 11:30 am

Men’s clothing was even simpler than woman’s. The most important piece of the clothing was a shorter version of the chiton (means shield),which was belted at the waist . At home people went without shoes,
but in the streets or when travelling people wore leather sandals.

• 1st May 2020 at 12:40 pm

Wow, great use of the word chiton (with brackets to explain it) and adverbials of place- at home, in the streets. Do you think you can add an introduction sentence to explain what you’re writing about? Or maybe a subtitle as a question?

The perimeter is 34m

• 1st May 2020 at 12:46 pm

Yes! Well done Lydia!

• 1st May 2020 at 12:45 pm

I have the same answer as you for 2 of them. Have a look at number 2 again. I’m not sure where you got the 3 from?

• 1st May 2020 at 12:54 pm

my answer for the maths was 100 and 3 quarters.

• 1st May 2020 at 4:45 pm

Declan, I’m not sure you’ve got this correct. Did you watch the video?
If we work out the missing sides of the first shape, the 2 horizontal sides are 8 and 7, and are parallel to the top, so the top is the same as them added together- 15
And the 2 vertical sides (4 and 10) are parallel to the right hand side, so that is 14.
If we add all those together – 15 + 14 + 8 + 10 + 7 + 4 = 58.
See if you can have another go at the other 2.

• 2nd May 2020 at 8:23 pm

1) 58
2) 21
3) 55 and 3/4

Clothing in Ancient Greece consisted of lengths of rectangular or wool fabric. The Greeks wore light clothing as the climate was hot for most of the year There garment usually consisted of two main parts of a tunic -either a peplos or a chiton-and a cloak -himation-. … it was made of wool and had clasps at shoulders.

• 1st May 2020 at 4:40 pm

Great research and well written Declan. Just check which there their they’re you need for sentence 2. Your second sentence is a bit long, maybe if you put a full stop before the there…

• 1st May 2020 at 1:35 pm

Hi Mrs Leeming
This is my English work.

In ancient Greece the women would wear peplos. It was a large square piece of cloth. The chinton was a large piece of cloth. It was worn by men and women. At home the Greeks wouldn’t wear any shoes. Outside they would wear leather sandals.

• 1st May 2020 at 4:31 pm

Well done Jaynelle, instead of starting a new sentence for It was worn by men and women, could you use a relative clause and a comma.
piece of cloth, which was worn by men and women.
What do you think?

• 1st May 2020 at 2:01 pm

MATHS!
1)=58
2)=28
3)=61 and a quarter

• 1st May 2020 at 4:32 pm

Hi Dan,
I have the same results for one of the shapes. Can you send me your working so I can help you?

• 1st May 2020 at 2:05 pm

3) =70 the other 3) was a mistake

• 1st May 2020 at 4:32 pm

Yes 70 is correct for number 3. But you still need to work on number 2. Send me your working out.

• 1st May 2020 at 2:30 pm

English:

Ancient Greeks used wool and linen to make clothes.Women wore a tunic (which in Ancient Greece they called a peplos)they also wore a chiton which everyone can wear. Men and women wore long ones all the children wore short chitons.Almost everyone were bare footed but some men or women had leather sandals.

• 1st May 2020 at 4:34 pm

Great work Dhanshri, I like the way you have used the correct words for the clothes and brackets!!!!
As you are writing in the past tense, could you change the can (which everyone can wear) to a could, which helps keep the tense correct?

• 1st May 2020 at 6:34 pm

I have purple pened my work is it better.

There are 2 pieces of clothing that the men and women wear to cover their body.The undergarment includes the peplos or chiton then they draped the cloak it can be chlamys or himation. The clothes that they wore were usually homemade.It was made from wood fabric,rectangular lining with little sewing and cutting.When they wore it,it was secured with girdle,a belt,pins or clasps.

• 1st May 2020 at 4:35 pm

I like the list of clothing- but in your text next week it might help to have a diagram to show what each of these looked like…?

• 1st May 2020 at 4:36 pm

Well done Aamirat! I think you’re the first person to get them all correct on the first go.

The Greeks wore light clothes as the climate was hot for most of the year. Their usually wore two main parts, a tunic (either a peplos or chiton) and a cloak (himation). Clothes were worn at clasps pins at the shoulder and belt, sash, or girdle at the waist. Women also wore clothing which was made from big square piece of linen or wool. They used pins in various places to hold it together. Unlike the men’s, the dresses always went down to the ankles.

• 1st May 2020 at 4:37 pm

Great work Zain, I love the brackets. I think the “their” in the second sentence might need changing to they, have a read through and see what you think.

• 1st May 2020 at 5:32 pm

Maths

1. I did 8+7=15 and that goes at the top and then you do 10+4=14 on the side that is missing.
The perimeter is 58cm

2. I did 9-1.5= 7.5 and that goes on the longer side so then I did 8-2.5=5.5 and that goes to the other side that’s missing.

3. So you do 16+19=35 then you do 35+8=43 then 3/4=43 3/4 43 3/4+16= 59 3/4 59 3/4+10 1/4=70
And the perimeter
