Good morning Year 5 and the start of another week.
Well done to out bloggers and e mailers on Friday – Sadia, Evie, Alex, Cyran, Dhanshri, Tanisa, Zain, Logan.

Certificates this week –
Last week I awarded a certificate for everyone that blogged but I am going to do things a bit differently this week as there is a lot of consistency – many of you are blogging regularly while some are only blogging once a week. I am therefore basing certificates this week on effort. I will be expecting you to blog each day. I will also have a writer and mathematician of the week if someone really stands out. There will also be a Star of the Week – there could be more than one!
Please remember that you can ask questions via the blog or e mail if you are unsure about the tasks. I am here to help as I am in class. It is a bit tricky not being with you and being able to pull up a chair and show you how to do something, but I will try as best as I can remotely.
Our theme this week is going to be CHOCOLATE – I thought that might excite you!

Do you know what the prefixes ‘co’ and ‘re’ mean?
The following powerpoint should help to explain (we aren’t looking at all of the words on the powerpoint).
Make sure that you know the meaning of the 7 spellings words above. Practise each one a few times until you can spell it confidently. Then put each word into a sentence.
Read the following text and answer the questions:
We are going to do dome revision this week on decimals and fractions – it’s been a while since we looked at this in school and I think it would be good to refresh. look at the following link – there is a video, a learning summary, a quiz and then a worksheet for you to complete.
Blog your answers.
Go onto Times Tables Rock Stars. Play 10 games and let me know your scores for each game.
