18.5.20 Morning Year 5

Morning Year 5. I hope you had a lovely weekend. Mr Cooper has put some of the tea bag challenge videos together from last week – take a look on his blog https://standrews323.herts.sch.uk/pupils/year-6/

Just for Fun Challenge

This weeks ‘Just For Fun’ challenge is to create a ‘socially distanced’ picture. We all know the importance of staying 2 meters away from other people, well this week, you have to stay 2 meters away from your paper! Your picture can be of whatever you want but you MUST stay 2 meters away whilst creating it!

Feel free to send in pictures of you completing the challenge and the final piece. You might want to send in a video of you doing it (you could speed it up.) Good luck!

Maths –Summer Term Week 3 (w/c 4th May) Lesson 1 Multiply 2 digits area model (or carry on from where you’ve got to in the work so far). You have to scroll right down to the bottom of the page to find the lesson – we are two weeks behind the resources on the website. We are on w/c 4th May.

Don’t forget to use the video to help you and the answers to check your work.


English – Today we are going to look at another book by Shaun Tan – The Lost thing.  There is all the work for the whole week in this link – we are doing day 1 today.


Geography – Your project for the week is to research the geography of a European country.  Find out about the physical geography (that means mountains, rivers etc) and also about the human geography (eg about cities, population etc). How you present your work is up to you – perhaps you could make a little guide to the country?

Today, you could start your project by choosing a country in Europe – perhaps one that you’d like to visit one day! You could look on a map and find out some basic information eg.  where the country is, what countries border it and what it’s capital city is.

Enjoy your day.

Take care
