# Wednesday 20th May – Year 5

Good morning Year 5 – Mrs Millard again!

I hope you are all O.K. – we are missing you all so much!

Well done to our super bloggers and e mailers yesterday: Lydia, Tanisa, Evie, Jessica, Dan, Sadia, Dhanshri, Aamirat, Alex and Zain.

Well done also to those who cracked the Maths code – Lydia, Sadia, Dhanshri and Alex.

Finally, a jolly well done for those of you who completed all 3 tasks yesterday – Tanisa and Sadia.

Here is your learning for today:

### English

You have revised using inverted commas this week and I’d like you to use them in a story. You can write your story about whatever you like, choose which characters you like and base it in the setting of your choice – many of you have wonderful imaginations so you can go as wild as you like.

Because you are using inverted commas, there needs to obviously be some dialogue between characters at numerous points in the story – some of the conversations can be longer as this will allow you to show off your knowledge of how to use inverted commas accurately.

Remember that the amount that you write should be equivalent to what you would write in an extended writing lesson in school – don’t forget the paragraphs!

### Maths

Today, we are going to finish off our work on angles and look at some reasoning questions. Have a go at the following:

1)

2)

3)

4) The compass in Question 1 will help you here. It might be helpful to draw it on another piece of paper so that it is in front of you.

Here is an example for you:

If I start at NW and turn clockwise to SE, I have turned through 180 degrees – I know this because it is a straight line. If I turned the same but anticlockwise, it would be exactly the same.

Your partner could be someone at home that you can discuss this with first before you put it on the blog. You should complete at least 3 examples.

### Science

This is a video taught by a teacher and look at the question ‘What is light and where does it come from?’

I want you to make notes as your watch it and then blog exactly what you learnt.

Take care,

Mrs Millard and Mrs Munro XX

Once there was a young girl named Jasmine.She was the kind of person who loved to play with her friends.
One day she was going to see one of her friends but suddenly she saw something sparkle in front of her. She ran towards it and she saw an emerald green door,once she opened the door she saw a dashing light, suddenly she felt like she was floating in the air. Then as quick as a flash the light took her into another dimension.
Jasmine had dizzy spells from all the spinning.
THUMP!!!!
She fell onto the ground. Someone came from behind her and said
‘‘ Are you ok ?”
”I am Mr Odd, that is what everyone calls me.” said the odd looking creature.
”Hello Mr Odd, I’m Jasmine.” She gasped.
At the beginning Jasmine felt scared to talk to Mr Odd.But then realised his very friendly.
Mr Odd started showing her around the dimension,people started chasing Mr Odd because the enemies didnt like Mr odd. Jasmine was kicked out of there for not being from their dimension and from that moment she never got to go back in there ever again. The next day she plot a plan to try and break into the dimension. She spent the whole day trying to think of something and then BOOM a plan came into mind.

She was going to knock on the door and tell Mr Odd that she wants to be his friend. So she went to the door and knocked and said that she will be his friend if no one else will.
Mr Odd said ”That will be fantastic!”
and then Mr Odd let her in and they started chatting and they then became really good friends .

You’ve used inverted commas well. Don’t forget other punctuation – a comma before ‘she gasped’.

Don’t forget punctuation in the first paragraph – the final sentence needs commas and the sentence before is rather long.

1. 1 of a turn 360 reflex angle
2. 1/4 of a turn right angle 90
3. North 1/4 right angle
4. 45 acute angle 1/8 of a turn

• 20th May 2020 at 2:30 pm

1) What do you mean by ‘1 of a turn’?

Is this all question 1?

Mrs Millard XX

• 20th May 2020 at 11:59 am

I’ve learnt that transparent means you can see light through it and that opaque means you cant see light through it

• 20th May 2020 at 2:31 pm

Well done – you’ve missed an apostrophe and capital letter. Do you know where?

MATHS

1. 360 degrees ,complete angle, a whole
2. 90 degrees,right angle, a quarter
3.180 degrees, straight angle,a half
4. 45 degrees, acute angle, 1 eighth

Thanks Dhanshri – is this all question 1?

Mrs Millard XX

Section 2 maths

45 and 79 because they are both an acute angle.
270 because it’s a reflex angle.
180 because it’s a straight angle.

Section 3

Thanks Dhanshri,

On question 3, do your answers change depending on whether you turn clockwise or anticlockwise?

Once there was house and living in that house was a family they were happy.One day their dad had a football match to go since he played football his family came to give support “dads team is winning ” shouted Dylan.Mum said “stop shouting already and watch the match and if you keep saying he is winning that will bring bad luck on the team.”Then after they started cheering on Lexi exclaimed”The scoreboard says dads team has started loosing””Dylan this is all your fault how many times do I have to tell you don’t celebrate to soon.”

• 20th May 2020 at 2:38 pm

Thanks Aamirat,

Have you used paragraphs?

You have used inverted commas quite well but look at the last piece of speech where Lexi is talking. Why are there double inverted commas after the word ‘loosing’? If she keeps talking, you only needs inverted commas at the end.
Also, remember other speech punctuation – like a comma before/after said.

Ones there was a boy called Kakorot , he was strong, rich, kind and helpful . He had a joyfull family and good friends .

One day he went to the forest to get fire wood, and he met a wild man who had a bow .
“Who are you? ” Asked fearfully kakorot .
” I’m Mr Potato! ” answered nicely the old man .
” Who are you little boy? ” Asked Mr Potato.
The boy was silent for a seconds then he replied .
“I’m kakorot ” answered the boy , looking at the bow.
Mr Potato ,saw how the boy was enchanted by the bow, so he thought of giving it to him.
“The bow is yours !” said the man kindly.
“Thank you very much!” the boy replied very happily .

Thank you Alex – you have used inverted commas well.

Check your first and second piece of speech – does this sound better?

“Who are you?” asked Kakorot fearfully.
“I’m Mr Potato!” answered the old man nicely.

Well done for using better words for ‘said’ as this makes your writing more interesting.

180 because it is half a circle.
270 because that is a reflex angle
45 and 79 are acute angles

Science
Light is produced from light sources such as a lamb , a candle or the sun. light travels away from a light source until it meets an object . When something blocks light traveling from a source , a shadow is made.

One dark and gloomy day, this girl called Olivia was waiting for a very important letter. She was waiting and waiting for days and tomorrow it’s going to finally arrive. The next day,Olivia found the letter on her door step and read it aloud
” dear Olivia May you have been accepted in the dark hall a boarding school with miths ghost and more. You have been accepted because you have a terrible report so we hope to see you soon.”read Olivia with shock.She was disappointed and heart broken so she told her parents.
” Mom dad I got accepted to dark hall the boarding school!” Olivia explained.
” WHAT how come you got all A’s!” Screamed her mom.
” I know please forgive me.” Begged Olivia.
” Sorry darling I can’t do anything about it.” Said mom in sorrow.Suddenly, Olivia got a text message so she read it.
” Hi Olivia what’s up sorry but I pranked you your not going dark hall.” explained her friend Brooke. She was relieved it just was a very convincing prank.

• 20th May 2020 at 5:29 pm

Thanks Dhanshri,

You have used inverted commas well.

Double check where you’ve written ‘Begged Olivia’ and ‘Said mom in sorrow’. It should be a commas before these and not a full stop.

Hello Mrs Millard ill write the story on paper and put it in my folder 😉

Thanks Dan.

Hello Mrs Millard,

Maths
NW to NW clockwise, 360°, full circle, full turn
SW to SE anti-clockwise, 90°, right angle, 1/2 turn
SW to NE clockwise, 180°, obtuse angle,1/2 turn
NE to E, 45°, acute angle, 1/8 turn

79° is the odd one out because 180° is 1/2, 45° is 1/8, 270° is 3/4

1. Sometimes because clockwise is 90° and anticlockwise is 270°
2. Always because if you go clockwise or anti-clockwise the angle is bigger than 90°.
3. Never because clockwise is 315° and anticlockwise it is 45°.

Science

Light

*Form of energy
*Travels from a source
*travels in a straight line
examples of light sources are: Sun,torch,match,stars,fire,firefly,candle and a light bulb.
*light bulbs,matches and a candle all have to be hot to give off light.

reflection
Reflection is were light bounces off of an object to cause a reflection.

Hi Lydia,

Good answer to question 2 of your Maths – well done for making the link to fractions.
Question 2 – well done for thinking about moving in an anticlockwise direction as well as clockwise.

Good Science learning.
