Monday 1st June – Year 5

Good morning Year 5 – I hope you have had a wonderful half term week. This should obviously be the start of our final Summer term but this may well be via the blogs for a while yet.

I thought that this term we would have a theme of the week and this week it will be ‘Under the Sea’. Where possible, tasks will be linked to this but there are times when this will be tricky as there are still lots that we have to fit in. Let me know if you have any great ideas for possible themes that we can look at over the coming weeks.

Remember that you can ask us any questions via the blog or via our e mail address which is: yearfive@lingsprimary.org.uk.

Before we start, have a look at the following and discuss it with your family (you don’t have to blog this but you can if you would like!)

Here are your tasks for today:

Spellings

As we haven’t focussed specifically on spelling for a few weeks, I’d like you to revise the Year 3/4 spelling words. I don’t think that you have your Homework Books at home at the moment so you won’t have these words which we put at the front.

The words are below. If you can, print them out so that you have a copy but don’t worry if you can’t print them. I want you to test yourselves on these words throughout this week. Ideally, ask an adult or older sibling to read the words to you so that you can test yourself. Today, I’d like you to focus on the words in the first column – there are 29 words. Ask your ‘teacher’ to read them, write them down and them mark yourself. Blog me with your scores out of 29.

Reading

Read the following piece:

Now answer the questions below – please number your answers as you blog.

Maths

We looked at fractions in quite a bit of detail before lockdown and we have been looking at decimals all year. This week, we are going to focus on percentages – fractions, decimals and percentages are all closely linked.

What does ‘percent’ actually mean? Do you know?

Have a look at the following video which should help to explain:

Do you have any questions or queries after watching this?

The following powerpoint should also be useful.

Connecting_FDPs

Have a go at the following questions:

Foundation

Watch the following ‘BBC Teach Blue Planet Live Lesson’:

https://www.bbc.co.uk/teach/live-lessons/blue-planet-live-lesson/zn7tkmn

While you are watching, make notes on all the interesting facts that you find out. After watching it, I’d like you to create a fact file of the best facts that you learnt. This should include text but can also include pictures or diagrams.

It might look something like this (but please use whatever format you prefer)

Have fun!

Mrs Millard and Mrs Munro XX

    Good Morning Mrs Millard,
    I got 25 out of 29 on the spellings.
    Discussion
    I would tell my Mum about the message and ask her to talk to their parents. I would tell my friend to not reply and maybe if they were from school, tell their teacher. It was an outside club I would tell them to tell their leader.

      Hi Lydia,

      I hope you had a lovely week last week – it seems ages since we have ‘spoken.
      Very well done on the spellings – maybe just keep practising the 4 that were incorrect and then you will have perfection!

      Good ICT advice – I wouldn’t want to speak to them either!

      Hi Logan,

      It’s great to hear from you – I hope you had a lovely week last week. The weather has been beautiful!

      Great Maths work – all correct!
      Fabulous reading answers – just look at question 5 – it should be a 1-2 word answer. Did you answer all of the questions – there were 8? I was unsure which question your last answer was for – was it 7?

      Keep up the good work.

          Hi Logan,

          If you need any help with any of the tasks on the blog then let me know and I can help (as much as I can without being with you!). If you don’t want to do this on the blog then remember that you can also e mail me on

          Thanks for getting back to me.

      Thanks for this – what did you mean by ‘pick me up’?
      Check if ‘there’ is the correct spelling.

      Hi Evie,

      I hope you had a great week last week – it feels ages since our last contact!

      Well done on your spellings – there are 29 as the first two words have another word in brackets (accidentally, actually) and further down the list is busy and business.

      Maybe keep practising the ones that you got wrong – practise makes perfect!

    1. up to 1,000m below the surface of the ocean
    2. Sea stars, amphipods, squid
    3. 3/4 of the ocean bed is contained within the Abyss.
    4. The creatures filter the water or hunt other animals to feed in the Twilight Zone.
    5. Pitch black is the adjective that tells you the Abyss is dark.
    6. There is no light tin the trenches and they have sea stars. It is 11,000m below the ocean surface. The underwater tunnels can be explored with specialist scientific equipment.
    7.It was given the name Sunlight Zone because it has plenty of sunlight and heat in it.
    8. I would most like to visit the Twilight zone because it has lots of cool creatures like the wolf eel and it only has faint sunrays.

    1. Twilight zone is up to 1000m below the surface of the ocean.
    2. Sea stars, amphipods and squids.
    3. The Abyss takes up a quarter of the ocean bed.
    4.They feed by filtering in the water or hunting other creatures by speed.
    5. The adjective that tells you the Abyss is dark is ptich black.
    6. What I have learnt about is that the trenches are up to 11,000m below the ocean bed . I also learnt that the trenches are called the ocean bed. Also there is no nateral light in this zone.
    7. It is called that because the sunlight zone is the only zone that has sunlight.
    8.I would like to go to sunlight zone because it has the most light and if i get in trouble people will save me quicker and get there faster.

      Hi Gracie,

      It’s great to hear from you on the blogs – I hope you are enjoying the weather!

      Well done for having a go a this but I think you are a little confused.
      Let’s have a look at A first. Remember the percent (%) means for every hundred. So 1% means 1 out of 100 (1/100 as a fraction) so 1% of 100 is 1. It’s like getting 1 question right out of a test of 100 questions.
      7% of 100 would be 7 and 15% of 100 would be 15. Is this beginning to make sense?
