29.4.20 Morning Year 5

Morning Year 5!

Some ideas for the day:

Virtual Science School Trip – most of you have already visited. If you haven’t, go on the PurpleMash blog for details and take a look.

Maths –   Week 2  Lesson 3  Understand Percentages (or carry on from where you’ve got to in the decimals work so far). Don’t forget to use the video to help you and the answers to check your work.


English – Today, we are starting looking at features of persuasive writing ready for creating our own adverts tomorrow. Enjoy creating your posters. If you want to use any of the templates on 2publish then that’s fine, or you can create it by hand! There are some fun-time extras that some of you might enjoy trying too.

Art – continue with your art project. At the end of this post, there are all of the week’s suggestions. I tried the ‘Just for fun challenge’ – you’ll have to look on the Purple Mash blog to see my challenge attempt 🙂

Take care

Miss Sewell

Art (for the week) –

Just for fun challenge – 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.


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?
