Task 2: We are going to continue revising some of the learning we have covered so far in Year 5.  You are going to focus on fractions.


White Rose Maths has put together a great home learning pack on this which can be accessed through this link:

We would like you read Chapter 3, complete the online quiz and then put the events of the chapter into the correct sequence.



Task 1: Can you spot and correct all of the mistakes today?

Tues Spot the Mistakes

Task 2: Write a poem that captures the change from calm to chaos. Here are some ideas: a birthday party, a sunny day broken by a storm, a volcano or a stampede of animals.

This is a 2Do today on Purple Mash. Make sure you look at each of the heading in the table as this will give you lots of ideas for how to write your poem.

Geography and ICT:

Use resources available to you at home to find 5 interesting facts about Mount Kilimanjaro and write them down. You need to be able to turn these facts into a question.

Then, using 2quiz on Purple Mash, create a multiple choice quiz using your 5 facts.

For example, my question could be: Mount Kilimanjaro is in Europe. True or false?


Keeping Active:

You can do some exercise with The Body Coach.
