Day 2 (12.05.20)

Good morning Year 5.

We hope you’re keeping safe and well. It was so nice to see all the work that you completed last week 😊. Keep sending your photos; it’s lovely to see what you are getting up to and helps us feel a little more connected.


Here are your tasks for today (do what you can):

English: Comprehension about Palm Oil (you can either print it out or write your answers to the questions on paper). Choose either 2 stars (**) – average level or 3 stars (***) – more challenging.  N.B.: The answers follow straight on from the questions!


Your reading from today will support learning/tasks set later in the week.


We are continuing with the consolidation of learning from previous weeks. Today’s activities can be found in your workbooks:

1) Read page 35 – ‘Percentages’, page 36 – ‘Percentages, Fractions and Decimals’ and page 37 – ‘Fraction, Decimal and Percentage Problems’.

2) Then answer question 9 on page 38 and questions 13, 14 and 15 on page 39.


[These activities relate to the White Rose learning found at:  (see Week 2 Lessons 3, 4 and 5 - if you need a reminder) ]


Science: If we were in school, our Science topic this half term would have been life cycles – one of my favourite topics (and it links in really well with our rainforest topic).


As an introduction, I would like you to watch one of David Attenborough’s videos- ‘Attenborough’s Wonderful World’. The focus of his work is to share the life cycles of many creatures from across the globe. We are (hopefully) going to try and learn about the life cycles of some animals and plants both in our local environment and further afield.


Have a look at the diagram below. Can you label any parts of the flower? You can either print out the page (or if we were at school we would have drawn this in our Science books so you could have a go at drawing and labelling the flower on some paper). There is a word bank at the bottom of the page to help you. Don’t worry if you don’t know the parts of a flower –this is just to check your knowledge – we will learn more about the parts of a flower later in the week.


NB – on Thursday you will need a real flower (if possible – but don’t worry if you can’t get hold of one). If we were in school, we would be using Tulips or Daffodils, as these work really well for identifying the different parts of the flower. You can use a flower that you find on one of your walks or in your garden but bear in mind that you may not be able to identify all the parts.

We hope you have a lovely day, missing you all lots, 


Mrs Canipa and Miss Wood
