# Year 5 – Wednesday 24th February

Buenas dias todos! Que tal?

Good day everyone! How are you?

Maths- 75 minutes

Today we’re moving on to rectangles.  We know that rectangles are made of 2 sets of equal and parallel sides.  We can use this to help us to work out the perimeter,  if not all of the sides are given.

Watch the video.

Challenge

English- 90 minutes

Today, we will continue to follow the story of Will and the other boys. At the end of the session, you will have the chance to write a new entry in Will’s diary. Tomorrow we will be unpicking diary writing in more detail so continue to do your best until then.

Here is the next picture from the story. What can you see? What do you notice?

Here is the text that goes with this picture.

1. What does Freddie think that the boys should do and why?
2. What position does Freddie play in the football team?
3. Why are Billy’s eyes “shining with excitement”? What does this suggest about how Billy feels?
4. How is Lacey related to Billy? Who is the eldest?
5. Will says, “It would be an adventure, though.” Why is the word would in italics?
6. What might Will mean by “adventure”? Do you agree with him?
7. Why do you think Will believes that the war will be over by Christmas?
8. What might Will mean by “be a pity to miss it”?

Look at what we already know about Will. What do we learn about Will in this scene? What would you add to the diagram below? Would you move anything which is already there?

Writing task – What would Will add to his diary? Write the next entry. You should look to write around 50 – 100 words.

P.E.

1) Freddie thinks that they should join the army
2) He plays as a Goalkeeper
3) Billy feels very excited
4) Lacey is his big brother. She is the eldest
5) To say it in a different tone
6) I thnik he means that it would be an adventure to join the army. I agree
7) I think he thinks that because Christmas is a time of joy
8) He means that they would regret missing Christmas

Dear Diary
Today my friend Freddie thinks we should join the ARMY! And Billy WANTS TO! But Lacey (his elder brother) would need to go with him, that would be a great humiliation for him. It would be an adventure though… It’ll probably go over Christmas but it’ll be a shame to miss that. I don’t want to miss the best day of the year.

My last midsunmer nights dream

Hermia looks to lysnader confused. “Lysander where to tends all this?” asked Hermia.
“Hang off thou cat thou burr! vile thing let loose or I will shake the from me like a serpent.” replyed Lysander.
Hermia asked Lysander why he is being so rude and why he no longer loves her. Hermia accuse Helena of stealing her love.
“You are like a puppet. ” shouted Helena
“Just because I’m short does not mean in like a puppet” replied Hermia. Puck and Oberon realized the caose they have caused and decide to fix it. Puck hoes roming around the forest to find the humans and reverse the spell on lysander so he would love Hermia again. Egueus and his soldiers March to the forest to find his daughter and fors her to marry Demetrius or be killed. Duke Theseus orders Egeus to stand down and anouns there will be a triple wedding. The wedding will be between me and Hippolyta, Helena and Demetrius and Lysander and Hermia.

I can see the church, Will and his friends, a postbox, a pub or restaurant with people sitting outside and trees. It is a village.

What does Freddie think that the boys should do and why? Thinks they should join the army because it would be an adventure.
What position does Freddie play in the football team? Goalkeeper
Why are Billy’s eyes “shining with excitement”? What does this suggest about how Billy feels? Shows how excited he feels because his eyes light up
How is Lacey related to Billy? Who is the eldest? Brother and Lacey is the oldest
Will says, “It would be an adventure, though.” Why is the word would in italics? Because he’s making it sound exciting
What might Will mean by “adventure”? Do you agree with him? A new experience. No, it would be extremely scary
Why do you think Will believes that the war will be over by Christmas? Because he’s heard people say it
What might Will mean by “be a pity to miss it”? It would be a shame to miss going to war.

Diary:

Dear diary,
I was talking to my friends today about the war because it might end around Christmas time. I would like to join the army because it would be an adventure and a new experience. Freddie (the goalkeeper) was the one who said we should join. Billy said he’d like to join but he is too young and Lacey would have to look after him. Lacey is his big brother. I don’t think I will have time to join though, which is a shame.

• 24th February 2021 at 11:38 am

I can see that they are near to the church which might be where they are going.
I can see that they are passing some village houses.
I notice that they were talking to each other.
I notice that Will might be at the front because of his excitement.

1. What does Freddie think that the boys should do and why?

Join the army because most their people are doing that.

2. What position does Freddie play in the football team?

As a Goalkeeper.

3. Why are Billy’s eyes “shining with excitement”? What does this suggest about how Billy feels?

He is imaginative about joining the army and how much he will like it.

4. How is Lacey related to Billy? Who is the eldest?

Lacey is Billy’s elder brother.

5. Will says, “It would be an adventure, though.” Why is the word would in italics?

Because he might be worried of his football though.

6. What might Will mean by “adventure”? Do you agree with him?

Because it is far away in time until Christmas and they will enjoy in that time.

7. Why do you think Will believes that the war will be over by Christmas?

Because he says that heard others say that it will end by Christmas

8. What might Will mean by “be a pity to miss it”?
Because it will be sad to miss to be a solider.
Task 2-It looks fine to me.

Diary,

As walking by, I listened to my Friends until Freddy said,” Joining the army.” My heart thought about football rather than going to the army. I thought until billy face was full of excitement. I felt worried but I believed that it will end by Christmas. Then, Lacey replied, “You are to young.” I don’t know about what to say but being as an adventure until Christmas will be go except for the ones who didn’t go I knew that something can happen so we carried walking through the village.

Dear Diary,

As the sun was setting on a warm day, my friends and I was still making are way home. Most of the boys are joining the army and some of the others think we should all join. Billy said he would like go join but his brother Lacey said he was too young. I don’t know how I feel about joining the army, right now I just want to play football for England.

Will
