Today, you will be carrying on with your work on angles from last week. Go to the White Rose Home Learning Year 5 website and choose Week 10, Lesson 4 which is called 'Calculating angles around a point'. Watch the video, work through the worksheet and then check your work. I've attached my workings for Q5-8 in case you want to see how I worked them out.
This week we will be doing some revision on using the four operations (add, subtract, multiply and divide). Today you will be practising addition and subtraction. The lesson is called 'Add and Subtract Integers'. Click on the link below for the video (as it's not the normal White Rose page). Watch the video, work through the worksheet and then check your answers. I have attached my workings for Q8 in case you want to see how I worked it out.
For your silent writing this week, I would like you to write an explanation text explaining to your reader about the life cycle of an animal of your choice.
The purpose of this text type is to teach the reader about the life cycle so that they know how many stages there are, which order the stages go in and what happens at each stage. You will need to include a diagram of the life cycle and might want to include some extra pictures of the animal at each stage. You will need to describe the stages clearly and use the correct vocabulary (for example, metamorphosis, larva, pupa, embryo...). You might need to explain these terms for your reader.
I have included a couple examples of explanation texts below which you could read first to help you think about this text type. They both explain the life cycle clearly, using separate paragraphs for each stage and using appropriate scientific language. But I think they could both still be improved. I thought:
Today is our final RE lesson on creation. We are going to be looking at an extract from the Bible and think about what it teaches Christians about creation.
The Bible extract comes from a book called Psalms. It is Psalm Number 8. Do you know what a Psalm is?
A Psalm is a bit like a poem or prayer and there are lots of these in the book of Psalms in the Bible. This book is in the Old Testament. Psalms are often used in church services and can be read or sung together, a bit like a hymn.
Read through the Psalm below.
