27.4.20 Morning Year 5

Morning Year 5!

I really enjoyed looking at all your work last week. If you haven’t already, have a look at my blog on Friday which contained a selection of pictures from the week.

Last week, we had a Science focus and I have (hopefully) managed to arrange a virtual school trip linked to last week’s learning. I’ll let you know more details when I have them!

This week, I will continue to suggest a Maths and English task for the day and a project from a different area of the curriculum for the whole week. I was inspired by Mollie’s art magazine that she is creating (have a look at her blog post on PurpleMash), so I’ve decided that it would be fun to have an art focus for the week. 🙂

Maths –   Week 2  Day 1 Rounding decimals (or carry on from where you’ve got to in the decimals work so far)


Hopefully, you’re finding the video that goes along with worksheet helpful. The answers are there too, so you can check your work.

English – This week we are looking at poetry and our grammar focus is using relative clauses. Today, you will be reading a superhero poem and practise writing some sentences with relative clauses.


The attached sheet talks you through the different activities for today. There is also a PowerPoint to go with the lesson. (For some reason, I didn’t seem to be able to attach the PowerPoint, but if you click on the link above, it has the resources for the whole week and you should be able to access the PowerPoint from there.)

Art (for the week) –

Be creative! Below are some websites that you might find helpful. You might like to choose a particular artist, look at their artwork and then create your own art in a similar style.  As well as producing your own art, you could also research an artist and create a factfile  or poster about them and their life. You could also choose a particular skill eg perspective drawing, or shading, and work to improve your skill in that area.


This is the children’s part of the website for the Tate art gallery. Explore the site. There are links to information about different artists and lots of different art activities you can try. Don’t worry if you haven’t got art supplies at home, there are ideas that you could do just with a pen or pencil, and there are also online art activities – you can then save what you create to your computer.

If you’re interested in improving your drawing skills, particularly at cartoons, then have a look at these links. There are book illustrators (including Quentin Blake, who has illustrated lots of books including many Roald Dahl books, and Jeff Kinney who created the Wimpy Kid books) showing how to draw characters from their books. You could use the videos to try to draw the different characters, and then maybe create your own character?



It would be brilliant to see your works of art. Take a picture of them and then you can attach them to the blog on PurpleMash so the rest of the class can see your creations!

Take care
