Learning and caring together

Tuesday 2nd February

Good morning Year 5, not long to go. Keep showing me how amazing you are and continuing working your socks off. If you are struggling and feeling down, pick yourself back up again and find a way round it. Watch this video for todays’ inspiration.

Please keep working hard and making sure you are reading three times a week. I received photos of more reading in reading records last week but I still need to see more. Remember, if you need a new reading book or new writing and maths books, please contact me via email.

Remember this week is Mental Health week, we will be completing daily activities throughout the week and then on Friday we will be having a technology free day and celebrating rainbow day. Please check Marvellous Me everyday to find out more information about this.

Vowel and consonant –

This week’s spellings are below. Today your task is to write 10 spellings out and then add up the letters using vowel and consonant numbers. A vowel is worth 4 and a consonant is worth 7. Which spelling has the largest total? I have completed an example for you.

Example – solidify – 7+4+7+4+7+4+7+7=47

disqualify, disqualification, identity, identification, justify, justification, purify, purification, solidify, solidification, disappeared, disbelieve, discourtesy, disorganise, disapprove, disapproval, discovering, disregarding, distributed, disallowed.

Mrs Robinson’s group –

mountainous, poisonous, thunderous, contagious, curious, dubious, glorious, gracious, hilarious, luxurious, mysterious, precious, religious, spacious, studious


SPAG (15 minutes): Indefinite articles

When using indefinite articles, we use a or an because they are used to refer to something in a less specific manner. You would use a before a consonant sounding word. You would use an before a vowel sounding word. Look at the examples below.

Complete the following task.

Add the correct determiner to the following words.

  • parachute
  • umbrella
  • orange
  • igloo
  • baboon
  • horse
  • estate
  • unicycle
  • hour
  • tornado

Now add the correct determiners in the missing gaps.

If I could choose what to eat, I would have _________ orange every morning. I would eat ______ apple at lunch and _________ horse for tea. If I was allowed outside after school, I would ride _________ unicycle all the way home or even ride on the back of __________ baboon.

Writing (45 minutes): To create a setting description

Today you will be continuing with your setting description. You will describe what you can see. Use the same picture you used yesterday and remain with that picture for the remainder of the week. Again, I have created a video of what it should look like.


Maths Meeting: Recapping previous learning (15 minutes)

Maths: Decimals (45 minutes)

Today you are moving onto find missing decimals which are needed to get to one whole one. You are doing very well with your decimals, so keep it up and make sure you are understanding the columns. Watch the video today to understand today’s task.
