Year 5 Home Learning 27.04.20

Happy Monday Year 5! We hope you all had a restful weekend and enjoyed some of the beautiful weather outside.

It’s time to start a new week of learning so here are your activities for today!

Morning Challenge: 

Here’s a little something to get your brain warmed up this morning!




You are focusing on homophones this week – words that sound the same but have a different spelling.

peace, piece, scene, seen, mail, male, accept, except, affect, effect, weather, whether

Group 2 and 3:

You are focusing on words that have -ous as a suffix: courageous, mountainous, spacious, dangerous, various, famous, glorious, furious, envious, poisonous, mountainous

Use this sheet to write the word in a sentence, to show its meaning. Spellings – write in a sentence


Task 1: How many of these word problems can you solve? Mon maths challenge

Task 2: You are going to continue to learn about decimal numbers this week.   White Rose Maths has put together a great home learning pack on this which can be accessed through this link:

We would like you to complete lesson 1 for Summer Term Week 2 – adding decimals with the same number of decimal places . Watch the clip about this learning then answer the questions in the activity section. The answers are also available so you can check your work once you have completed it – no peeking before you have completed the questions!


You are going to finish reading ‘How to catch a beast’ and today, we would like you to read chapter 5 and complete the multiple choice quiz afterwards.

Remember to look at the underlined words as you read the text. These are words you may be unfamiliar with and if you hover over the word, it will tell you its meaning.


Task 1: How many words can you find in the word wheel? Remember, each word you make must include the central letter! Mon word wheel

Task 2: Having read all of the book ‘How to Catch a Beast’, we would like you to write a review about it. What did you like best about the story? Who was your favourite character and why? Is there anything you would change about the story? We have set this as a 2Do on Purple Mash for you.


Can you find examples of things that make you feel happy each day? Complete the attached journal to keep a record of this. You can send a page of the journal to us each day or the complete journal at the end of the week.

PSHE Happiness Journal


Can you find the right word in French to match up with the number? French Numbers

Keeping Active:  

Make sure you take regular work breaks and join in with the body Coach – P.E. with Joe at 9 a.m.

Something fun!

How many of these challenges can you complete today? We look forward to finding out! Daily Challenge 2

Keep in touch – remember any work you have completed can be emailed to us to be marked. This can be typed work or a photo.

Stay safe.
