White Rose maths for Summer Term – Week 4 (w/c 11th May)

Monday

  • Complete maths Lesson 1 – Area of rectangles (files at the top).
  • Last Monday bank holiday was Whit Monday – the day after Whitsun which celebrates the Christian festival of Pentecost.
    1. Complete the reading comprehension all about what Christians believe about Pentecost. If you find it tricky, you can have a go at comprehension two.

2. If you were in charge of deciding bank holidays (a day off work and school), what day do you think should be a bank holiday and why?
You can present your ideas as a persuasive speech, persuasive letter, poster, presentation, play or anything else you can think of to persuade me!

Remember to give as many reasons as possible and use persuasive techniques you practised from your letter (scroll down if you’ve forgotten the techniques).

 

Tuesday

  • Complete maths Lesson 2 – Equivalent Fractions.
  • Science – Materials and their Properties
    1. Look at Jim’s problem from the sheet below. He has a cup of dry sand with tiny bits of iron in it but wants to separate them. What do you know about iron? Think about how Jim could separate his mixture.
      Complete the sheet – there is no need to print it out; you can write the headings on any piece of paper.
    2. Look at the extension mixtures. How would you separate these? Some might be easy to do by yourself, but if you are stuck with others, this video might give you a clue - https://www.bbc.co.uk/bitesize/clips/zb9c87h

Wednesday

  • Complete maths Lesson 3 – Converting improper fractions to mixed numbers and visa versa.
  • Science – Materials and their Properties
    1. Watch this video https://www.bbc.co.uk/bitesize/topics/zjty4wx/articles/zpbdpbk
    2. Dissolving Experiment: Look at this document and have a go at testing if these materials are soluble in water. These materials are suggestions and you might have lots of materials in your home you would like to check (but ask permission first!) Write your own table with your predictions and test if they dissolve.
    3. Saturation Experiment: If a liquid cannot dissolve any more of a material we say that it is saturated. Making sure everything apart from the material you use stays the same, compare the saturation of sugar and salt. You might also want to compare a material you used in the dissolving experiment.
    4. What did you discover? Write a few sentences using the sheets as a guide.

Thursday

  1. Look for personification and metaphor in the story starter (sentence challenge) and answer the questions (Question Time).
  2. Use your answers to plan the rest of the using a story hill, or make notes in these categories:
    Starter (story starter) à Problem à Solution à Ending
    You can also make notes about your character – who is she? Is there anyone else in your story?
  3. Write the next paragraph of your story. You will be writing the rest tomorrow.

 

Friday

  • Go to https://whiterosemaths.com/homelearning/year-5/ Open Summer Term – Week 4 (w/c 11th May) and scroll down to Friday’s maths challenge!

You might want to repeat lots of lines, you might want to use humour or rhyme, or you might want to write an acrostic poem where you spell a word like mine:
    Cuddly
    Acrobatic
    Tenacious

    Vocabulary: transparent (see-through) permeable (allows liquid though) durable (strong and long-lasting) opaque (not see-through) lexible (this should say flexible, meaning bendy) insulator (keeps heat)
2. Go on a materials hunt around your house. Tell me what the object is, what is used for, what material is used and why that material is suitable.
3. Complete this sheet about reversible and irreversible changes. You don’t need to print the sheet you can write down some notes. Can you test out these changes in your house with an adult?
