There are some great resources in Twinkl that you may find helpful (parents will need to make an account but it is free whilst there are school closures)

Tasks:

Draw a poster (or use the worksheet) to label and colour the planets in order from the Sun.

Create an information sheet, leaflet, poster or power point giving information about each planet (e.g. which are rocky/gas? their sizes, their temperatures)  We have included some information cards below, but you can carry out your own reserch.

 

Watch the clips about the Sun, Moon and Earth:

What causes day and night? What causes summer and winter? What and how does the shape of the moon appear to change when seen from Earth? Write what you find out, including diagrams.

 

There are some great educational resources on BBC iPlayer that support the IPC units (Earth as an Island and The Solar System) that we have been learning about this term.

Story writing

Watch Alma https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=fLDEM_9JNsw

Rewrite the story in third person. Think carefully about the atmosphere you would like to create at each point in the story. Describe:

  • her walking down the snowy street and seeing the doll in the shop window
  • Her surprise and curiosity
  • how the door opens (make it a bit sinister)
  • the inside of the shop. What is strange?
  • her reaching up for the doll. (Try to build suspense.)
  • her trapped inside the doll and looking out from behind the glass eyes of the doll on the shelf.

Write the next part of the story. Who comes along next? What happens to them?

Newspaper

Watch the clip ‘The Lighthouse’

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=6HfBbSUORvo

Write it up as a news report - headline, orientation (summary - who, what, when, where) main story, witnesses and summary at end to explain current situation. Remember to keep to third person and use emotive language (e.g. the brave villagers, the vulnerable ship).

 PSHE Tasks: Belonging to a Community

 

Hi Year 5,

For your PSHE work, I’d like you to focus on fashion.  During the week 20-26th April, it is Fashion Revolution week.  This gives you an opportunity to find out about the clothes you wear and consider aspects of its production i.e. how it’s made. 

 

  1.  Read the printed powerpoint and notes. 
  2. Complete activity, Where are my clothes made?
  3. Complete activity, ‘What can I find out about my clothes?
  4. Design a Fashion Revolution Poster to display at home.  To do this, you might want to draw and colour you, your family and friends in their favourite clothes; alternatively, you could you could make a collage from old fashion magazines that inspires people to think differently about the clothes they wear and buy.

 

When we return to school, bring your work and pictures with you for us to have a mini-exhibition. 

 

Keep well and stay safe

From

Mrs Gough J
