Today you are going to be working on shapes. Go to the White Rose Home Learning Year 5 website and choose Week 11, Lesson 1 which is called 'Regular and Irregular Polygons'. Watch the video, work through the worksheet and then check your answers. Some of the questions ask you to measure the angles. I know that lots of you won't have protractors at home, so don't worry if you can't do that part, hopefully you will have a ruler though and will be able to measure the sides! I've attached my workings for Q6 in case you want to see how I solved it.
Today you are going to be continuing with your work on the four operations, focusing on multiplication. The lesson today is called 'Multiply up to a 4-digit number by a 2-digit number'. Click the link below to watch the video, work through the worksheet and then check your answers. I've attached my explanation for Q1 in case you want to have a look. On Q8, if there is someone you can work with then great, if not, you can imagine you have a partner and use two different colours to represent each turn!
Today I would like you to write your life cycle explanation text. Use your plan from yesterday to help you with this, in particular it should help you to structure your paragraphs.
Think about where you want to put your diagram of the life cycle on your page as well.
Remember that an explanation text:
You can choose if you write your text by hand in your book or if you write it on a computer.
This week we are going to be thinking about habitats.
Today, we are going to focus on minibeasts. Start by looking at the Powerpoint below. It has lots of really interesting facts about different minibeasts and shares information about their habitats.
This afternoon, I would like you to go out into your garden on a minibeast hunt. When you are out there have a think about:
If you are able to, take photos of any minibeasts you find.
Tomorrow you are going to be doing some follow up work based on your minibeast hunt.
