Hello Year 5
I hope you and your families are well? Thank you for your ongoing communication and involvement in this and other exciting learning: there are lots of your photos in a slide show on the Year 5 Class Homepage click here
Yesterday included a Design and Make challenge using re-cycled things....see some of your incredibly creative ideas below:
Play against someone else in your family:
You have 3 minutes to find two items - use the timer below:
1) The smallest heaviest thing you can find
2) The biggest lightest thing you can find
Who got the smallest heaviest thing?
Who got the biggest lightest thing?
Bonus question: Which is heavier: a kilogram of concrete or a kilogram of marshmallow?
In your folder find the worksheet called Use counting up (Frog) to subtract four-digit numbers from multiples of 100
Watch the teaching tips video below
Remember - with a number line counting up - jump to next 10, then next 100, then next 1000
Remember - with column subtraction we do not want any negative answers in columns
In your exercise book at the Maths end complete these questions.
Show the working out in two ways:
1) A number line and
2) A column method
Your answers should be the same!
Ask a grown-up to check or use the answers below to mark them yourself.
The first ever recording of the human voice was made in 1877 during Victorian times.
I have been recording my voice to share messages with you all at home....just like the one below:
To do this, please talk to a grown-up first.
One easy way to do this is to download a free app onto your phone or tablet. Click on the link below for instructions how to do this for Android Devices and Apple Devices.
During the Industrial Revolution, Science and Technology went crazy and so many new inventions appeared that changed life forever - many that are still so very important for us today.
Watch the clip below to learn a bit more about these:
On a new page in your exercise book, at the English end, I would like you to either:
1) Create your own invention - draw it and label it. What does your invention do? How does it help you in your life? or...
2) Invent your own app - draw it's logo - draw some screen shots from your app. What does your app do? How does it help you in your life? or...
3) Design your own futuristic transport - draw it and label it. What special features does it have?
Draw neatly - use a ruler for lines - label carefully
Now write a short persuasive advert for your invention - persuade somebody to buy it. Use persuasive language: alliteration, superlatives, exaggeration.
Watch the teaching video below to help you write it.
If you prefer, you can record it: like a radio advert, and email it to me using the skills you learnt in your computing lesson.
