Year 5

Welcome to the class page for Year 5.  We will update this page with work we would like you to complete at home!

Miss McKenna & Miss Gabbott

To contact us during this period of school closure please e-mail Year5@penwortham-pri.lancs.sch.uk and we will get back to you.

Hi Year 5,

Miss Gabbott again! 🙂 Hope you’re all well; staying safe and having a great ‘Week 2’.  I am having a bit of a lazy start to the week this week.  I did lots of cleaning, tidying and organising last week and I think it has tired me out.  I’m definitely missing the lovely sunshine too.  Hopefully, the sun will put his hat back on for us in the next few weeks to brighten us all up.  I hope you’ve all been doing some really fun activities and spending lots of quality time with the people in your house. I miss seeing your happy, smiley faces but I’m happy that you’re all safe and well.

Here are your Thursday and Friday activities: enjoy!

Miss Gabbott 🙂

English (Grammar):

Apostrophes for Possession and Contraction 

There are two ways of using apostrophes in a sentence: apostrophes for possession and apostrophes for contraction.

Apostrophes for possession are used when we talk about something belonging to something or someone else and the apostrophe is placed after the noun/name before the ‘s’ e.g. The dogs tail was wagging.

If it is more than one person/animal/noun etc, the apostrophe is placed after the ‘s’ e.g. The dogs tails were wagging.

Apostrophes for contraction are used when a word or a group of words are shortened to create a new word.  The apostrophe is placed where letters have been taken away e.g. cannot becomes can(the second ‘n’ and the ‘o’ are taken away and replaced by an apostrophe).

In your ‘Home Learning’ book (after the long date and the title), write the following sentences, inserting the apostrophes where they need to be:

  1. Katies bag was on the back of her chair.
  2. I dont think I can go to the party.
  3. The cats tongue was sticking out.
  4. Bens head was hurting after he fell over.
  5. She couldnt see that far from where she was standing.
  6. The cats tongues were sticking out.
  7. Lucys card wouldnt stand up on the table.
  8. Youll be able to sit down on Wills table in a moment.

In your ‘Home Learning’ book, change these words into contractions with an apostrophe:

she will she’ll 
cannot   
should not   
I will   
they are   
we have

RE:

The Prophet Muhammad and the Revelation of the Qur’an

prophet-muhammad[1]

Last week, you carried out some research on the Islamic religious text: the Qur’an.  This week, you are going to find out how the Qu’ran came about because of the prophet Muhammad.

Read the following text:

Islam is the world’s second largest religion.  It teaches that God is merciful and powerful and that people can call on God when they are in need.  God is known as Allah. People who follow Islam are known as Muslims. Muslims believe that Islam has always existed and became known to them through prophets.  It is believed that the last prophet was Muhammad.

The Qur’an is written in Arabic and is the holy writings of Islam.  Muslims believe it is the word of God and that it teaches people about right and wrong.  Anyone who handles or touches the Qur’an has to follow special rules.  They must wash in ways called ablutions.

Muhammad was born in Mecca in Saudi Arabia.  He worked as a merchant and became known for his honesty.  He was a deeply spiritual person and would often meditate on Mount Hira.

One day, he was meditating  in a cave on Mount Hira when the Angel Gabriel appeared and spoke to him. Muhammad began to recite words which he believed came straight from God.  This was his first revelation from God.

Over the next 22 years, Muhammad received more revelations from God.  These revelations were written down as the Qur’an.  From that time, Muhammad was known as Prophet Muhammad and he preached about the revelations for the rest of his life.  He is recognised as the founder of Islam.

The main message is that there is no God but Allah and that life should be lived in submission to Allah.

Prophet Muhammad died in AD 632 in Medina.  He is buried there.

In your ‘Home Learning’ book (after the long date and the title), use the text to answer the following questions in full sentences:

  1. What is Islam?
  2. How did Muslims learn about Islam?
  3. Write two facts about the Qur’an.
  4. What are ‘ablutions’?
  5. Explain how Muhammad had the Qur’an revealed to him.
  6. What did Muhammad do after the Qur’an had been revealed to him?
  7. Write the main message in your own words.

Bonus Activity:

Dance Like Nobody’s Watching!

It’s that time of the week again! 

This afternoon, I would like you to choose your favourite music or just some happy, uplifting, energetic music and dance around the room for at least 20 minutes!

If you’re a keen dancer or want to learn something new, why not look for some dance tutorials on YouTube? There are lots of different levels for different types of dance.  I love HipHop/Street Dance 🙂

Here’s some ideas:

English:

Poetry: Limericks

A limerick is a silly poem with five lines. They are often funny, silly or nonsensical. Limericks were made famous by Edward Lear, a famous author who wrote the “Book of Nonsense” in the 1800s. This is one of Lear’s limericks:

There was an old man in a tree,
Who was horribly bored by a bee,
When they said, “Does it buzz?”
He replied, “Yes it does!”
“It’s a regular brute of a bee!”

Find out some more about limericks here:

Read and listen to 7 silly limericks here:

Now! In your ‘Home Learning’ book (after your long date and your title), using the examples you have read and listened to, see if you can write your own limerick!

Use these tips to help you:

  • Lines 1, 2 and 5 rhyme and are longer lines (3 beats);
  • Lines 3 and 4 rhyme and are shorter lines (2 beats).

Music:

The Fresh Prince of Bel-Air

Continue to learn the song ‘The Fresh Prince of Bel-Air’ by DJ Jazzy Jeff and The Fresh Prince (Will Smith).  The following is the full version of the song but when you watch the TV show, the song on the opening credits is a shorter version.  These are the lyrics that fans of the show know and love 🙂 I have made those lyrics bold below.

(This is the  opening credits to the TV show but the sound quality isn’t amazing – the first episode is 30 years old!)

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=dAXx-K7Ct7w 
(This is just the song but the FULL EXTENDED VERSION and the sound quality is much better).

Full Extended Version Lyrics:

Now this is a story all about how,
My life got flipped turned upside down,
And I’d like to take a minute just sit right there,
I’ll tell you how I became the prince of a town called Bel-Air.
 
In West Philadelphia born and raised,
On the playground is where I spent most of my days,
Chillin’ out maxin’ relaxin’ all cool,
And all shootin’ some B’ball outside of the school,
When a couple of guys who were up to no good,
Started makin’ trouble in my neighbourhood,
I got in one little fight and my mom got scared,
And said you’re movin’ with your auntie and uncle in Bel-Air.
 
I begged and pleaded with her day after day,
But she packed my suitcase and sent me on my way,
She give me a kiss and then she gave me my ticket,
Put my walkman on and said I might as well kick it,
First class yo this is bad,
Drinkin’ orange juice out of a champagne glass,
Is this what the people of Bel-Air live like?
Hmmm this might be all right!
But wait I hear they’re prissy? Bourgeois and all that?
Is this the type of place that they should send this cool cat?
I don’t think so I’ll see when I get there,
I hope they’re prepared for the prince of Bel-Air!
 
Well uh the plane landed and when I came out,
There was a dude looked like a cop standin’ there with my name out,
I ain’t tryin’ to get arrested yet I just got here,
I sprang with the quickness like lightning disappeared.
 
I whistled for a cab and when it came near,
The licence plate said fresh and it had dice in the mirror,
If anything I could say that this cab was rare,
But I thought nah forget it: “Yo home to Bel-Air!”
 
I pulled up to the house about 7 or 8,
And I yelled to the cabbie “Yo homes smell ya later!”
Looked at my kingdom I was finally there,
To sit on my throne as the prince of Bel-Air!
 
RESEARCH CHALLENGE:
 
Will Smith was a very successful recording artist throughout his years on ‘Fresh Prince’ and beyond.  Lots of Will’s songs sampled another existing song.  In music, sampling is the reuse of a portion (or sample) of a sound recording in another recording. You might listen to somebody’s song and think that you’ve heard it before.
 
One of Will’s songs ‘Will 2K’ samples a 1982 song called ‘Rock the Casbah’ by British Punk band ‘The Clash’.
 
Research the following information about Will’s songs:
 
1. What original song (and by which artist in what year) does Will’s song ‘Miami’ sample?
2. What original song (and by which artist in what year) does Will’s song ‘Men in Black’ sample?
 
Email me with the answers if you find them 🙂 
 
Easter Activity:
 
 
It is getting closer and closer to Easter.  It is 9 days today until Easter Sunday. I thought it would be nice (if you would like to and you and your family celebrate/acknowledge Easter) to do some Easter crafts. Just because we’re indoors doesn’t mean that we can’t get into the spirit.
 
You could:
 

If your family doesn’t celebrate Easter, you could make some lovely ‘Spring’ crafts .

Take some pictures of anything you make and email them to me.  I would love to see 🙂

Have a lovely, restful and safe Easter break Year 5.

Today for your english I would like you to write a film review. You can choose a film that your have watched or watch one to review.

Writing a Film Review

Planning…
Imagine that your review is to be posted on an Internet film website. It will be read by people of all ages. It should be between 100- 500 words.
Start by answering the following questions as a plan before you start your review.

  • Film title. You could also include a star rating here.
  • Introduction: what you expected from the film
  • Genre: what type of film is it? Does it have a message?
  • Plot: what happens in the film? Does the plot make sense? Is it easy enough to follow? Is it believable? Don’t give it all away though!
  • Characters: Who are the main characters and what are they like? Who are the actors playing these parts, and are they good in the parts?
  • What is the camerawork/ animation like? If there are special effects, what are they like? Are there beautiful scenes? Are there moments when the camera is used in an interesting way?
  • Did you enjoy the film? Why/why not? What were its good and bad points?
  • Would you recommend this film? To what sorts of people? Why?
  • Are there any other films you can compare this film to?

When you have completed your planning by answering all the questions, you should write your review.

Remember:

  • Set your work out in paragraphs
  • Take care with spelling and punctuation
  • Make the review interesting to read by choosing your language carefully
  • Write in the first person and try to address the reader directly. For example: ‘I urge you to go and see this film- it’s brilliant!’
  • Write in a style that is informal, but not too informal.

Remember to finish off your Topic work from yesterday! I’m looking forward to seeing your Maya architecture!

Hope you enjoy the rest of your week take care,

Miss McKenna 😉 

Good morning Year 5, Miss McKenna here. Welcome to week two.

Hope you are all well and have had a good weekend. It’s very strange not coming to work and I’m missing you all!

Monday 30th March 2020

I hope you are all enjoying some form of exercise each day (we are still doing Joe Wicks each day). I know some of you have been out on walks and bike rides as well as playing on your trampolines. Keep it up and feel free to send me photos or links to any good exercise ideas.

Please follow the link below and complete week 2 lesson 1 – Rounding decimals. 
https://whiterosemaths.com/homelearning/year-5/
We have covered week 1 in class but if you are struggling/or can’t remember you can go back and have a look at week 1 to recap.

Can you write a formal letter for your local key workers? A letter for the local shop, farmers, nurses, doctors, cleaners, teachers, drivers or any other key workers you can think of. What would you like to say to them? What are you thankful for?  What will you do once this is all over and life returns to normal? What are you enjoying doing? Please write your letter on paper.

Remember a formal letter needs…

ADDRESS – Write your address at the top right.

DATE – Write the date underneath the address.

GREETING – If you know the person well : Dear George
                              If you know the person’s name : Dear Mr. Baker
                              If you don’t know their name : Dear Sir or Madam

OPENING – Tell the reader WHY you are writing :

I would like to know…
I am writing to you because…

CONCLUSION – Mention what you are writing for again. If you want something to happen after the person reads your letter, tell them.

CLOSE – If you are family or good friends : Love from
                    If you know the person’s name : Yours sincerely
                    If you don’t know their name : Yours truly.

Here is my example:

I am sure yours will be much better than mine with some amazing sentences!

Your parents can take a photo and send it to my email. Did you enjoy writing a letter? Why not write a letter to a family member you cant see at the moment. Or even write one to your friends. I’m sure your parents will take a photo and send it to them. 

 

Do you like Music?
Have a look at Myleene’s Music Klass…
https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCQh2wgJ5tOrixYBn6jFXsXQ
Or how about Gareth Malone’s Great British Home Choir…
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=rFgYqP2wUQU
Gareth does a live lesson at 5:30 each week day, let me know if you like it!
Get the whole family involved!

Are you feeling creative? Can you make some animals from old toilet rolls? Maybe you could make a zoo? Need some inspiration? Have a look at these…

 

 

Jack and I have started the Lego challenge, if you have Lego why don’t you have had a go at this over the next 30 days… 

Try some, ask your grown up to take a photo and email it to me! 

Hi Year 5 🙂

Miss Gabbott here!  Hope you are all well and adjusting to this change in routine.  I know it’s going to take a bit of getting used to but remember just because things are different, it doesn’t mean they have to be bad.

Keep on smiling; be kind to everyone and enjoy every day.  Even more importantly…stay safe and look after the people you’re with.

I hope to see some of your work and hear about what you have been getting up to in your emails so keep them coming please 🙂 (the email address is above).

English (Grammar):

Semi-Colons and Colons

We have been exploring three ways of using semi-colons and colons in sentences:

  1. Semi-colons in a list:
    e.g. Lucy went to the supermarket and bought a loaf of bread; a two litre bottle of water; a large bag of new potatoes and a family size box of donuts.
  2. Semi-colon instead of a conjunction (joining word):
    e.g. It was an extremely sunny day; I put sun lotion on my skin.
  3. Colon for information that follows an idea or point made:
    e.g. Julie has two daughters: Katie and Jen.

Using the three examples above to help you, write the following sentences in your ‘Home Learning’ book and put the semi-colons and colons in the correct places:

Semi-colons in a list:

  1. I went to the airport shop and bought a pile of magazines a set of earplugs a travel pillow and a bottle of water.
  2. My friend won a luxury holiday for two £1000 spending money and a year’s supply of chocolate.

Semi-colon instead of a conjunction:

  1. I was really hungry I ate a huge pizza.
  2. The football pitch was closed it had been snowing all day.

Colon for information that follows an idea or point made:

  1. They were looking forward to their holiday Florida and Hawaii.
  2. Stacy needed ingredients to bake a lovely cake flour, sugar, eggs and butter.

Challenge: Write one of your own sentences for each of the three types of semi-colon and colon.

Maths:

Times Tables

Remember how I always tell you that if you know your times tables, you can do pretty much anything in Maths with ease? Well, let’s see if we can use this time at home to get even better at them! You have done a lot of writing for me this morning so next, go on to ‘Topmarks’ at the link below:

https://www.topmarks.co.uk/maths-games/7-11-years/times-tables

For at least 20 minutes, choose from the different times tables games and activities. 

Which times tables are you confident with and which ones do you need some work on?

RE:

Why is the Qur’an so significant in the Islamic faith?

Research the Islamic religious text: the Qur’an.

Here are some good websites for you to explore:

https://www.bbc.co.uk/teach/class-clips-video/religious-education-ks2-my-life-my-religion-the-quran/z4p8mfr

https://www.bbc.co.uk/bitesize/clips/z4fgkqt

https://wiki.kidzsearch.com/wiki/Qur%27an

Remember if you see ‘Koran’ this is the English spelling! 

Create a poster explaining what you have found out.

Remember, a good poster needs:

  • A main heading;
  • Pictures;
  • Key words that stand out;
  • Interesting information but not too much writing;
  • Bright colours;
  • To be clear, attractive and eye catching!

Take a picture of your poster and email it to me so I can have a look!

Bonus Activity:

Dance Like Nobody’s Watching!

We would have been going swimming today so it is important to try and stay active while we are at home.  Hopefully, you will have had a go at Joe Wicks’ PE sessions at some point (or maybe even everyday) this week.

This afternoon, I would like you to choose your favourite music or just some happy, uplifting, energetic music and dance around the room for at least 20 minutes!

Move your arms, legs and your whole body! Sing at the top of your lungs! Get rid of some of that tension, worry or boredom that you might have been feeling this week.  See if you can rope your mum, dad, brothers, sisters and any other people in your household into doing it too! (I’ve already done this a couple of times this week sshh!)

Let me know what songs you have been dancing to 🙂

English:

Diary Entry:

In your ‘Home Learning’ book, write a diary entry of your day or summary of your first week being at home.

Features of a Diary Entry:

  • The date;
  • Begin with Dear Diary, (don’t forget the comma);
  • A description of events – what have you done? What happened?
  • A description of your thoughts and feelings;
  • Mainly in the first person (I did this, I did that, I felt…);
  • Mainly in the past tense (describing what has already happened);
  • Personal to you and informal;
  • Time order (Firstly, this morning…Then,…After that,…);
  • Sign off at the end (e.g. Speak to you tomorrow, Miss Gabbott x)
  • You might have some present/future tense at the end (see my example).

My Example:

Tuesday 24th March, 2020

Dear Diary,

Today has been a better day! I am definitely feeling more settled than I did yesterday.  Today was my second ‘official’ day of being at home.  After surviving yesterday, I knew what to expect.

Firstly, I woke up at 6am (no lie ins for me at the minute!).  I got up without snoozing; made my bed; went downstairs to make some breakfast and a cup of tea; brushed my teeth and got dressed.  The usual!

Next, I put some washing on.  I know it sounds boring but being at home has meant that I can catch up on some of the jobs that were mounting up.  It’s refreshing to feel like I’m not rushing around everywhere all the time.  My life is usually really busy so I’m actually enjoying more of a slow pace. I don’t think I will feel any boredom for a while!

After that, at around 11am, I planned some more activities for Year 5 to do on a Thursday and a Friday (this is when I usually teach them).  I am really enjoying planning these activities and replying to emails from the children.  I hope they keep sending me lots of emails so I can see and hear what they’re getting up to.

After lunch and a little sit down, I cleaned my bedroom, the bathroom, the hallway, landing and stairs with some of my favourite music on.  I really enjoyed listening to all of my favourite music.  When I’m not busy working, I’m definitely going to do more of the things I always complain I have no time for.

Next, I made a home made lasagne for tea while finishing off the day’s emails from year 5.  It was really yummy and I was very proud of myself.  I’m hoping to do more cooking while I am at home.

Finally, I had a lovely bubble bath; got ready for bed and now I am listening to one of my favourite podcasts.  It won’t be long until I am fast asleep.  I have actually really enjoyed today!

Speak to you tomorrow,

Miss Gabbott x

Yours might not be as long as mine, I just wanted to give you a good example 🙂

Maths:

Times Tables (Continued)

Keep practising Year 5! There are some really good games for times tables here:

https://mathsframe.co.uk/en/resources/category/22/most-popular

Choose the ones you want to do for at least 20 minutes please.

PSHE:

Self-Reflection Audit: All About Me

While we are at home and (hopefully) have more time than we usually do, now is a really good time to be reflective and think about ourselves as individual people.  Who are we and what makes us unique?

In your ‘Home Learning’ book; on a piece of paper or on the computer (wherever you want), draw a picture of you in the middle and write ‘ME’.  Then around the outside of your picture (like a mind map with arrows) answer the following questions about yourself:

  1. What is your name?
  2. How old are you and when is your birthday?
  3. What is your favourite food?
  4. Who is (are) your best friend(s)?
  5. What is your favourite TV show or YouTube channel?
  6. Who is your favourite singer/band/musician?
  7. What is your favourite song?
  8. What is one of your skills or talents?
  9. What would you like to get better at?
  10. What is one of your most favourite memories?
  11. What would you like to do while you are at home that you don’t usually have time for?
  12. What quality would you like somebody else to say that you have? (e.g. that you are really kind or generous).

Music:

The Fresh Prince of Bel Air

Seen as we had just started this in our music lessons, I thought it would be a shame to let it go to waste! Listen to the song, while reading the lyrics and see if you can learn it! Teach it to somebody else in your house 🙂 

Here is a link to the video on YouTube:

(This is the  opening credits to the TV show but the sound quality isn’t amazing – the first episode is 30 years old!)

Did you have a go at Joe Wicks live PE yesterday? Try joining in with Joe Wicks live PE lesson at 9am.  

 

 As you know we have started looking at non-fiction texts. We had also started leaning about Maya Civilisation. Over the next week I would like you to make an information book or fact file about them. 

Today see what you can find out about 

 What the ancient Maya’s believed in?
Can you name any of their Gods? What where they Gods of? What did they believe the earth was? How did the sky stay up?
Think about including…
Heading
Subheadings
Diagrams with labels
Pictures with captions
Fun facts.
Remember to use past tense and write in third person. 

Have fun!! I’m looking for 1 page including images. You can do this on a word document, a power point or on paper that’s up to you. 

 Here are some links to help…
Religion and Gods.

How are your number bonds?
Log onto Purple mash and play the set task for number bonds. If you know your times tables are tricky, pick a tricky one and practice on the 2simple table toons. Try the speed challenge when you feel more confident. 

Do you have someone you can read to at home? An older or younger sister/brother?Your teddies or dolls? Have a go at reading out loud to them. Can you do the voices of the different characters?

 Have you had a go at the Lego challenge yet? Lets see your photos!

Have you seen the experiment to show why soap works at killing germs?

Have a go…

  • Get a plate/saucer (white is best)
  • Fill with water
  • Sprinkle some finely ground pepper on to the water so it covers the plate (don’t touch it yet)
  • Now put a finger in…anything happen?
  • Next put some soap on your fingertip, rub it around the tip of your finger
  • Put your finger in…

Did it work? The soap should make the pepper ‘run’ away from you! This is why washing your hands is so important.
