28.4.20 Hello Year 5

Good morning Year 5!

It was lovely to be able to speak to most of your on the phone yesterday and be able to chat about what you’ve been up to and how you’re doing. (If I didn’t speak to you yesterday, I did try to ring you, but just didn’t get through – I will try again!)

Virtual Science School Trip – If you go on the Purple Mash blog, there is a link and password to the to the Science show. We can only access it this week, so if you haven’t already, make sure you take a look!

Maths –   Week 2  Lesson 2  Order and compare 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 – Today, you will be building on your work yesterday about relative clauses.The final task is to write a description of your superhero (trying to include relative clauses in some of your sentences).   If you’d prefer to type your description, I have uploaded a template as a 2do that you could use, or you can hand-write it if you’d prefer.  I look forward to reading them!


In the link above, you can find the PowerPoint from yesterday, which will help you with today’s lesson.

Art – continue with your art creations. At the end of this post, there are all of yesterday’s suggestions.

Just for fun – Another art related thing that you might like to try is to create a famous work of art in your house. It seems to be a little craze that people have been doing since lock down. Look at this blog posts for some ideas.  I might even try it. It looks like it could be fun!


Take care

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?
