Welcome to the final week of the term.

We have some more fitness challenges for you and some revision of our work this year.

Thursday 16th July

Maths:

Challenge 1:

1. Write out the alphabet.

2. Give each letter a value starting with a=£1, b=£2, c=£3 up to z=£26.

3. How much is your first name worth? And your last name?

4. How much is your teacher’s name worth?

5. What would be the most expensive day of the week? 

6. Which year 5 class is the most expensive? 

7. If vowels are worth double money, how much is your first and last name worth in total?

Challenge 2: 

Digital Roots

Investigate how to check calculations using the digital root.

Step 1: Write down four 2-digit numbers and find the digital root of each 2-digit number.

e.g. 23, 46, 91, 35.

23 ------ 2 + 3 = 5

46 ------ 4 + 6 = 10 1 + 0 = 1

91 ------ 9 + 1 = 10 1 + 0 = 1

35 ------ 3 + 5 = 8

Step 2: Find total of the digital roots e.g. 5 + 1 + 1 + 8 = 15 then 1 + 5 = 6

Step 3: Then add the four 2-digit numbers together. e.g. 23 + 46 + 91 + 35 = 195

Step 4: Find the digital root of the total. e.g. 1 + 9 + 5 = 15 then 1 + 5 = 6

Do the two digital roots from step 2 and step 4 match up? Is this sometimes or always? Investigate by creating your own sets of four two-digit numbers!

Class Party

This afternoon would have been our class party, so we think you should also have a bit of a celebration. 

Here's a playlist on Youtube you can use. Have a bit fo a dance party and enjoy!

HAVE FUN!

English

Now that you have had a go at summarising one of the books from this year, have a go at making a movie trailer for it!  Storyboard out your idea and then see if you can film it using a device, or just act it out. You could also make your idea into a comic strip. Use anyone in your household or some toys for stand in characters. 

Art

Have a go at this weeks MG Art Club Challenge. This week's theme is Two Tone. Have a go at the task and send us in your projects!

Tuesday 14th July

Maths:

Today you will be looking at how to show the remainder from a division problem in a different way. This will use some of your division facts and also your fraction and decimal knowledge. 

Oak National Academy

Have a go at these questions too:

English

Have a got at these LBQ tasks:

Then pick one of the books we have read this year and try to summarise it. Try not to use more than one or two paragraphs. Then see if you can put it into a story mountain. Remember they may have more that one 'Problem' with different 'Resolutions', imagine this to be a few mountains that make up one mountain range for the whole book.

Geography

Speaking of mountains, have a go at these tasks on Discovery Espresso about mountains. We looked briefly at these earlier this year. Have a look at the videos then do some of the activities about the formation of mountains and the different peaks across the continents. 

PE

Two new exercises for you. How did you get on yesterday with the press up and crunches? Did you try all fo the techniques to challenge yourself?

Today you have squats and burpees!

Monday 13th July

Maths:

Today the Oak National Academy lesson is on crossing through zero. Here's the lesson:

Oak National Academy 

Use number lines to help and listen to the video carefully; pause it if you need to.

Here are some extra questions if you need the challenge.

1) -18 and 14.

2) -13 and 17.

3) -18 and 6.

4) -12 and 3.

5) -11 and 20.

6)  5 and -8.

7)  0 and -19.

8) -8 and 3.

9)  19 and -20.

10) -11 and 1.

English:

Today have a go at revising some Spelling, Punctuation and Grammar with these LBQ tasks. Please use your correct name when signing in.

PE:

Here are your first 2 challenges: press ups and crunches! Follow the guidance and see which form is most comfortable for you, then set your baseline. Each day we'll be adding a challenge but also trying to beat our time or number of these too.

  • If you feel comfortable with these, do as many as you can, and that will be your baseline. Then tomorrow see if you can do more - increasing by one or two is an improvement! 
  • If you want to work your way up, set a time and do the exercise until the buzzer goes, then increase the time by 10 or 15 seconds tomorrow and keep going!

Little breaks are fine to have and water is important to keep your muscles hydrated. Try to work out which muscle groups you are working on during each exercise.
