B lueberries were his favourite fruit (even his dog loved them too!)

arefully, Dave would pick the blueberries from his blueberry trees, which were in a field behind his quaint, little cottage.

D ave adored eating blueberries and he ate them every single day!

E very single day he ate at least three bags full of blueberries; the people in the village didn’t seem to think Dave was all that normal and couldn’t understand why he only ate blueberries every day!

F reddy, who was one of his close friends, warned him about his addiction to blueberries and how it may, one day, make him extremely ill!

‘G et something else to eat Dave,’ ordered Freddy, but Dave would never listen.

VE Day Activities 

Tomorrow, (Friday 8th May) people all over the UK and in other countries of the world will turn their thoughts and attention to the 75th anniversary of VE (Victory in Europe) day. This very important and historical day, back in 1945, marked the end of World War II in Europe. Therefore, for today's learning, we would like you take part in some VE day activities! To get started, watch the video and read the VE Day fact file. Then give the questions a go, there is a */**/*** option, so you decide which one to look at. After that, there is some recipes, songs, dances and crafts to have a go at! So once you have gained some good knowledge and understanding of the day, pencil's down and get baking, dancing, singing and crafting!

 

Please share all of your brilliant VE day activities on your portfolios - Me and Miss. Badger can't wait to see what you create! Have lots of fun and let's celebrate this historic day! 

Maths 

Task 1 - VE Day Maths Puzzle

One major breakthrough that helped the Allies win the Second World War, was being able to break the Enigma code. The Enigma Machine was a device used by the German army to create an almost unbreakable code, in order to hide their secret messages. Using problem solving, maths, code breaking and science, the Allies (and in particular a man named Alan Turing) were able to break this code, enabling them to intercept and read all of the secret messages being sent by the Axis forces. In this maths puzzle, you will be investigating a number rule to test if it is true or false.

Task 2 - Ration Book Shopping

During the war, there was a shortage of food. As a result of this, British citizens were issued with a ration book. This limited and capped the amount of food they could purchase. Work out how much of each item you buy each week.

She had been walking all day. Her feet hurt and her bones ached, but it would all be worth it: she was almost there. The path, that rose up in front of her, twisted through the mist like a snake squeezing its prey. Were the stories all true? Did the path truly lead where she had been told? If it did, this was only just the beginning of her journey…

Monday 23rd March 2020

 

Good Morning Year 5

 

Guided Reading - The Sea- Mammy 

You will find the text in the home learning packs along with the questions on the back. Today, as we would always do, is read, read and read again! Read this once out loud, take it in turns to read with someone else (2 sentences at a time) and, if possible, let's keep practicing our echo reading! If parents/guardians could read a sentence then the children will read this back to you (we are working really hard on trying to get our fluency up so it would be great if we could keep going with this).

 

English

In the children's home learning packs, there are SPAG mats for them to complete. Choose a 1 star for today - you will find the star rating on the bottom of the sheet- and for the first week also, I will be posting relative clause activities for the children. The activities are all on the Relative Clause - Activities upload, just for today complete page 2 (page 1 is a guidance sheet). To help with this, I have uploaded a Powerpoint presentation, which includes help and activities. It would be great if you could take some time to go through this with the children. 

 

__________________________________________________________________________________________

 

Math's - Track them Down!

In the home learning packs, there are several math's activities, for today we will be completing Track them Down! 

This is a fun  investigation activity to try and find pairs/three numbers that give a specific answer! Ask children to give a go at first, then let's look at what we know to see how we can track down the right numbers. Think about your number bonds and times table facts to work this out! To help with this I have uploaded a multiplication grid (some children do already have these however in their packs). For an extention, spend 15/20 minutes on Reflex/Active Learn. 

 

Topic 

Let's get started on our research on Jane Goodall, ready for writing our biography! In the home learning pack is guidance on this and 2 websites to get the children started. If they start to compile their research in their red homework books/books we gave them last Friday, that would be great. 

 

 

If children want to put all of their learning each day in these books, that would be very helpful and will keep a good track on what they have completed each day! Have a great day everyone - I am available for contact via Dojo's for both classes today as Miss. Badger is in school.

 

Thank you.
