Welcome to the final week of home schooling!!!

Spellings: Rule 25: cious/tious suffixes.

Use the powerpoint below to explore when to use the suffixes cious or tious. Can children explain the rule for how to choose which suffix to use? As always, watch out for those tricky words that don’t follow the rules!

Maths:

  • Then you should see a range of question intervals at the bottom of the page…can you try a quicker challenge?

Parents: I have also uploaded the answer sheet (Y4 MATHS ANSWERS) for you to refer to.

Year 5: Add fractions

Today you will be adding fractions with different denominators and writing your answers as mixed numbers and improper fractions. You will need to use your knowledge of equivalent fractions to help you.

English:

This week is world book week, (world book day is officially Thursday) so, you are all going to become authors and write your own books!  

This week, we are going to be taking inspiration from the author of the ‘How to train your dragon’ series, Cressida Cowell.

Watch the two videos below, to learn a bit about Cressida Cowell and to hear the prologue and the first chapter of ‘How to train your dragon.’

Prologue: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=DyUNZa7_Gjo&list=PLBHPLU9xAmxfoJvqBzIlGLTypOm-cy8Tu

Chapter 1:

Then, complete the VIPERS reading comprehension questions, making sure your write your answers clearly.

I have also uploaded a copy of the text for the prologue and chapter 1 for you to refer to. It doesn’t have the illustrations, therefore the page numbers are different.

 

Science:

Another chance to get creative and messy! This week, you are going to have a go at making skin, bones and muscles using items you should be able to find at home. Follow the instructions on the PDF below to make a model showing bones, muscles and skin. Can you take a photo/draw a diagram of your model, labelling each part and clearly explain the function of bones, muscles and skin. Remember to use the correct scientific vocabulary in your explanations.
