3.4.20 Happy Friday Year 5

Happy Friday!

Well done for making it to the end of week two of learning at home!

Yesterday,  some of us  tried playing a Kahoot quiz. Jasmine was came a very close second, and Holly topped the leader board, both having scored 100%. They know their Harry Potter!

If you’d like to take part in the Kahoot quiz today, all about the Vikings, enter the PIN  0853400


Here are some other ideas of what you might do today:

PE – If you fancy a change from Joe Wicks, you could try one of the routines from imoves. (It’s free, but your parents would need to sign up)  https://signup.imoves.com/subscribe/package/55 

Spelling – I have added a spelling quiz for the words from Special Focus 6 – I didn’t want you to be missing your Friday spelling test 😉

English/History – Finish your Viking Life work.  It’s set as a 2do on PurpleMash, but if you’d prefer to present the information in another way, that’s fine.  If you complete the work on PurpleMash, I can see it automatically, but if you present the information in a different way, I’d love to see it, so send me a picture! Post it on the blog or email Year5@standrews323.herts.sch.uk

If you need to find more information about life in Viking times, these websites are a good start:



Maths – Carry on with the Subtract 2 Mixed Numbers sheet.  The answers to all the Maths work you might have completed are at the top of this post.  Do post a comment on the blog if you’re stuck and I’ll help you! If you’ve finished that sheet, you could go on Mathletics – see if you can get a certificate this week!

Science – We had lots of interesting predictions as to whether putting a coat on the snowman would make it melt quicker or slower. We don’t all seem to agree though. If you haven’t added your thoughts, then do that to the PurpleMash blog post.

If you’ve already added your ideas, why don’t you try it out? You could get two ice cubes. Put one in a sock(?), so that it’s a bit like the snowman having a coat on. Observe the ice cube. What happens? Which one melts first? Add your findings to the blog post. Can you explain why? (Do check with you parents before you take ice from the freezer!)

If you’re looking for extra activities, try one of the creative tasks from the Viking activity sheet.
