8.6.20 Morning Year 5!

Here we are at the start of another week. I hope you had a good weekend and managed to get out and about – hopefully you weren’t caught in too many downpours!

Ideas for the day:

Maths – Summer Term Week 6 (w/c 1st June)  Lesson 4 – Fractions as operators.

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


English – We are continuing to base our English work around life since lockdown. Today, you will be learning more about adverbs of possibility. Below is the link for the whole week – today is Day 1.


Science (for the week) – Find out about life cycles  of a  mammal, an amphibian, an insect and a bird. How you present your learning is up to you.  Watch the film below to get you started!
