EASTER ACTIVITIES

Here are some maths games that you can play with each other at home if you want. Don’t forget Year 5 the better you are are your times tables the better you will cope with our maths when we return.

TIMES TABLES : https://mathsframe.co.uk/en/resources/resource/477/Multiplication-Tables-Check

ESTIMATING ANGLES: https://nrich.maths.org/1235

COUNTDOWN: https://nrich.maths.org/6499

Don’t forget to use the STANDARD written methods for any operations that are complicated!

TIMES TABLE RECOGNITION: https://nrich.maths.org/1252

There is a similar game that will test your memory – you can increase the difficulty by adding more cards – play against someone at home!

  • EASTER ENGLISH:  To listen to the story: Kid Normal

We are about to begin the Easter Holidays!!  Over the holidays, try to listen to the story ‘Kid Normal’ (ideally listen regularly to maintain the flow of the story if you can).  I know some of you have read this book, but you may still enjoy listening to it.  No further English work will be set.

Use the following link to listen for FREE:

https://stories.audible.com/pdp/B07533YSBN?ref=adbl_ent_anon_ds_pdp_pc_pg-1-cntr-0-1

  • OUTDOOR LEARNING:

During the Easter Holidays, try getting to know the birds that visit your garden.  I have shared some identification spotter worksheets with you in Google Drive for garden birds (two sheets available).  As you will all live in different areas, you might prefer other bird spotter sheets.  Below is the link to a website which has many different spotter sheets to choose from, so feel free to choose your own.

https://www.wildlifewatch.org.uk/spotting-sheets

You don’t have to print the sheets, you can use them on your screen, just get to know the photos before you try to identify the birds.  You can either go out into your garden (but you will need to be very still in order to see the birds) or watch from a window.

Extra idea:  If you would like to, make a tally chart of the birds you identify, on Google Drive or in your Home Learning book.

I have found another link that leads to a set of activity worksheets. Please do them into your book – you will not be able to write on them directly. Here is the link:

Please ask if you get stuck  there are 9 questions on ratio and fraction. This is great practice. It is a PDF so if you can’t print then work from the screen into you Home Learning book.

  • ENGLISH:  Past and present progressive verbs (also known as continuous).

This verb tense is easier than it sounds!  In fact, many of you used it naturally in your tense practise yesterday!  It is using verbs that end in ‘ing’ with other simple verbs to create past and present tense.

e.g. PRESENT:  The dog is running down the road.

is’ makes the sentence present tense, and ‘running’ is the progressive verb.

PAST:  The dog was running down the road.

was’ makes the sentence past tense, and ‘running’ is the progressive verb.

If you would like more practise, complete the mini test on progressive tense.  You can print and complete, or leave displayed on the screen and write the answers in a Google document, or write them into your home learning book.  The last page gives you the answers so that you can check your work.

  • RE

We watched the story of Moses and how God supported Moses when he was trying to persuade the Pharaoh to let the slaves leave Egypt. Part of the animation showed a terrible punishment sent down by God as plagues. The slaves were protected by God  by allowing the plague of death to PASSOVER their houses. Please watch the video on how Jewish families still celebrate the saving of their people  by remembering Passover. Then there are 2 worksheets to have a look at on the Drive. You won’t be able to write on them – try to match the answers into your Home Learning books.

  • GEOGRAPHY:

First of all – thank you for those who have done a slide on what is climate change  – they were great! If you haven’t done one yet, that is where to start please (look at the instructions on what it should include –                                             What it should include:  1) What is climate change. 2) Your opinion about what is causing it. 3) What can we do about it. 4) A selection of pictures to go with your information. It can take up more than one page if you want it to!

Keeping on the theme of Climate Change – lets create a slide on what we can do to STOP climate change. Make it INSTRUCTIONS on how to reduce, reuse, recycle – with ideas for children and adults. Let’s really research realistic things that families can do – Does your family do anything to support the environment at the moment? Encourage others to do like you do! We collect crisp packets and dog/cat food pouches which are sent to a company called Terracycle – what can you find out about that? I’d really like it as a ‘What to do to help’ kind of slide. All the research that you do is informative and relevant – good luck.

Extra Tasks

I have shared a Big Write prompt and marking ladder (ready for next week when you will be asked to write the actual text) and a planning sheet.  You can either print the planning sheet and write on it, or use it to help you write a plan on a Google document.  If you complete the plan on a Google document, please share it with me so I can mark it and help you.  Remember, a plan does not need to use full sentences, and you should use bullet points and other time saving ideas, you should not write out the whole text, the important part of this task is your thinking.
