Term 6 Week 3 (15th June)
I have uploaded a powerpoint with this week’s literacy tasks, with specific tasks for each day. I have tried to include illustrative examples as much as possible but please do ask if you are unsure. There are references to a number of grammatical terms; remember that there is a SPAG knowledge organiser and the glossary from the National Curriculum uploaded to the website to use if needed.
Y5: The week starts by finding percentages and comparing them with fractions and decimals before looking at adding numbers which include decimals.
Y6: A continuation of algebra to start the week and then learning how to convert different non-standard units.
For either year group, this link https://nrich.maths.org/1249 has a great game for practising finding equivalencies between percentages, fractions and decimals. The first level is reasonably straightforward but scroll down to find subsequent levels which get very tricky indeed!
This week’s SPAG has a specific focus of parentheses with several explanatory slides and then questions to answer as well.
I have uploaded the one of the classic novel opening tasks for this week: the rather exceptional opening of ‘White Fang’. Personally, I think, as a novel opening, there are not many better!
I asked the Y6 what they thought could be a good challenge this week and several of them suggested a construction challenge.
So, with that in mind, the challenge this week is to build a vehicle.
It can be made of absolutely anything (lego, recycling, leaves and sticks, mushrooms, leftover cereal, old socks…) and be any size, shape or design you wish but, generally, the stranger and more complicated the design the better!

Monday 1st June
Below you can find the home learning tasks for this week. I am back in school from Monday (I will see the Y6 on Wednesday!) so I will be less available during school hours each day to answer questions; however, I will ensure that I respond to any as quickly as I can. If you get stuck, (or run out of things to do!!) and I haven’t responded, I would again recommend Oak Academy and BBC Bitesize to tide you over.
For the Y6 children, the English work is not what we will be doing once you return on Wednesday but feel free to start it and it may be something you can finish off as we go along. The maths work is what we will work on from Wednesday so it would be great if you could tackle the Monday and Tuesday lessons so that we can pick up together on Wednesday.
I hope that you have managed to enjoy the half term this week; I am very much looking forward to seeing Y6 on Wednesday and I really hope that we can reunited with the Y5s soon too.
Home Learning T6W1
For English this week, I would like you to complete a non-chronological report (these are the sorts of texts you find in encyclopedias and often called simply ‘reports’).
You have a completely free choice as to what you want to write about so make it something that you are interested in or passionate about. You will need to research your chosen topic and plan it out carefully before you start writing.
You can present it in any way you want. You could write it in your book, you could make it into a poster, you could record it as a script for a video presentation; the possibilities are endless! I have included some examples of double-page spreads which we used earlier in the year (you need to look in the uploaded file for the pictures); these can be a great way to get a poster-style presentation but keep the presentation neat and tidy (if you have a double page left in your book!).
I have uploaded some useful resources to help you: a checklist of features to try to use; a planning sheet; some key vocabulary which you might use; some example reports to read. You do not have to use any of them but they are there if you wish to. I would LOVE to see the final results!
Y5: It is more work on fractions this week, multiplying fractions by whole numbers and finding fractions of amounts. Fractions as a concept can be difficult so I cannot recommend enough that the children follow the supporting videos to see the methods and explanations in action.
If it is a struggle, it may well be worth going back over previous weeks’ lessons which cover more of the basics of fractions to ensure that the key ideas of finding equivalencies and ordering fractions are solid.
Y6: It is finding equivalencies between fractions, decimals and percentages this week. Previous weeks have addressed the separate parts of this and could be worth looking at again if your child finds the equivalencies difficult.
**I will use this week’s lessons once the Y6 children return on Wednesday. It would be handy (although not essential) if they work through the lessons for Monday and Tuesday at home.**
I have uploaded the slides with answers as usual. Please remember that there is a SPAG Knowledge Organiser and the National Curriculum glossary of SPAG terms towards the bottom of the class page which can help with any vocabulary you may not be familiar with.
I have uploaded a reading task based around Stig of the Dump; there is a short extract, some questions and a writing task. For some reason, it is a 2 page document and the first page is blank so you can skip straight to page 2!
This is a great one! Can you draw a complete face without taking your pencil off the page at all? This is called continuous line drawing and is a lot harder than it sounds. Start with a face but what else can you attempt? There are some examples below (you need to look in the uploaded document for the pictures).

T5W6 Home Learning
Please remember that the video links are still hosted on the above website but that the worksheets and answers can be downloaded below.
Both year groups are covering skills which we have studied this year but that many found challenging. Please do get in touch if you have any questions as you work through the week and, if it becomes too much of a challenge, then please do not worry about forcing the issue. As always, calculation practice (methods available in links above) and mastering all the times tables up to 12x12 are excellent back-ups which will have a huge impact too.
This week, I would like the children to focus on setting descriptions and use some lessons from BBC Bitesize to practice some important skills which can help. I have provided links to the lessons and a suggested order, thinking that one lesson could be completed each day with the final writing tasks on Thursday and Friday. I have chosen two contrasting settings to describe in detail to test out the skills. Of course, you are free to move faster or slower at this and to skip sections of the BBC Bitesize lessons if they are not needed.
Thursday: Use the skills learned from these lessons to write a detailed setting description about this picture: https://www.onceuponapicture.co.uk/portfolio_page/life-of-pi/
Friday: A contrasting setting to describe today: https://www.onceuponapicture.co.uk/portfolio_page/lighthouse-town/
There are two reading sessions uploaded for this week, both linked to last week’s in different ways. One is an extract from ‘Fantastically Great Women Who Worked Wonders’ and the other from ‘You can save the planet: 101 ways you can make a difference’.
I have uploaded another set of slides with answers which cover key SPAG requirements covered so far this year. Please remember that there is a SPAG Knowledge Organiser and the National Curriculum glossary document further down the page which could help with definitions.
Our most recent science topic was on forces and as a little reminder, I have uploaded a file with a number of different pictures and the definition of some of forces we learned about. I would like the children to label the pictures (either by printing and labeling or by sketching them) with the different forces which are acting upon the objects.
The BBC bitesize website has videos and explanations if support is needed (it is starting to seem like a long time ago we covered this!).
I have been enjoying the results of your arty challenges so much that I decided to set another. Here is ‘Recycled Robot’ by artist Darrell Wakelam which is based on the Iron Man. Can you either make your own recycled robot or an original creation made from the recycling lying around your house? More ideas from Darrell can be found on his website here: https://www.darrellwakelam.com/

Slight change to the maths for this week. The guided videos are still on the White Rose website as always; however the worksheets are now only available to premium subscribers. The good news is that Crowan is a premium subscriber so we still have access! I will post the worksheets and answer sheets on the class page of the school website for download.
It does not say on the worksheets which is for Y5 or Y6 so I have listed the topics here and the lessons do appear in the same uploaded blocks to follow.
Year 5: Area and fractions.
Year 6: Multiplying and dividing fractions.
For this week, I would like the children to keep a daily diary of their lives. I was tipped off by a parent about this website http://www.massobs.org.uk/write-for-us/12th-may which is a project to chronicle the lives of as many people as possible across the UK on a single day: the 12th of May. It started on the 12th of May on 1937 on the day of George VI’s coronation. If you would like your child to contribute specifically towards this project, and have their writing archived for the study of future generations, you could type and email Wednesday’s entry to the email listed on the website or complete the template I have uploaded and post it (they will be accepting responses for a while so no need to make a ‘non-essential’ trip to the post box!).
For each entry, your child should consider:
- What they have done that day,
- What the other people in the household have been doing,
- The weather,
- Anything different or specific to that particular day,
- How this period of life is different to usual because of the school closure and what that means for/to them.
I have uploaded a reading session based on Greta Thunberg for this week. The text is reasonably complicated; when we would read a text like this in class I would do the bulk of the reading aloud so please feel free to read the text to your child if needed.
There is another set of SPAG slides to keep up some of the key skills learned this year.
I have discovered a brilliant set of draw-a-long videos by the illustrator and author Rob Biddulph in which he teaches, step by step, how to draw some of his creations. They are so good, even I managed to draw them! Choose a couple and let me know how you got on.

T5W4 Home Learning
Y5: The first 3 lessons from White Rose this week focus on multiplication and division methods and you child may well not need to do these if they are confident in the long multiplication and short division. I would suggest lesson 4 would be useful to revise perimeter and that they then tackle the Y6 content on fractions (everybody’s favourite!).
Y6: Use the White Rose home learning sessions to revise the important parts of fractions (yay!).
1) Poem: There is a clock on the church in my village which always tells the wrong time. I have written the first 6 lines of a poem about it; can you finish it off? It can be as long, as silly and as strange as you like but I would like you to stick to the structure of rhyming couplets: that is, each pair of lines should rhyme as the first section shows.
There is a clock in my village that tells the wrong time,
When it is half past three it says a quarter to nine.
It means that the villagers have no idea what to do,
When they go out at seven thirty but the clock says half past two.
They start eating their breakfast when they should be asleep,
And when it’s time to go to work they are off counting sheep!
2) I have uploaded two more reading sessions with links to texts: one on Greek gods and heroes and one which another general short history of the Greeks. The extracts are from www.lovereading4kids.co.uk which is an absolutely brilliant site which offers recommendations, lists and free extracts. You do need to create a free account to access the extracts but it is well worth it.
3) The deadline for the nature stories was extended until the 10th of May (Sunday) so your child may wish to continue polishing and editing this idea.
I have uploaded another set of slides for SPAG revision. I’ve only done 4 as Friday is *technically* a bank holiday! Please remember the glossary from the National Curriculum and the Knowledge Organiser are further down on the class page if you need any explanations.
I saw this on the internet and thought it was brilliant. Can you use everyday objects which are lying around your house to create some interesting art work? There are some examples in the word document (definitely not drawn by me!) to inspire you – all you need is paper, a pencil and ‘a thing’!

The structure for this week is a bit different as I wanted to incorporate some of the topic that we would have been learning about if we were at school. Our topic would have been Ancient Greece and therefore I have uploaded a series of reading sessions which are all focused around this period. The powerpoint file is divided into 7 sections which link to the BBC Bitesize website sections and follows the style of the reading sessions we would do in class. There are a number of extra clips and interactive sections on each page which I would definitely recommend checking out; however you do not need these to answer the questions.
Here is some guidance on how to use this.
- If necessary, read the text with your child. Perhaps take it turn to read a paragraph or you could read it first and then they attempt it. Even if your child struggles to read this out loud, they will be able to answer the questions if they hear the text and are supported through it.
- Answers could be discussed with you rather than written down. If they are written down (especially if child is working on this independently) they should be written in full sentences. No answers starting with because (or yes/no because)!
- You might want to work a section at a time rather than trying to complete the whole thing in one sitting.
- I will post answers later in the week for questions which have one clear answer (such as the Quick Quiz and Vocabulary questions).
- Please feel free to send across any longer answers for me to look at.
As a writing task this week, there is an excellent competition that closes on Friday at midnight. It has a 500 word limit and is focused all around nature with some really excellent prizes at stake! The link for all the information is here: https://www.365dayswild.com/could-you-be-the-next-top-nature-writer/
Planning resources I have uploaded in previous weeks could be useful and I would love to see any initial drafts to provide feedback and advice before they are sent off.
Again I recommend using the White Rose Home Learning schemes here: https://whiterosemaths.com/homelearning/
It would make sense to continue following the plans in the order in which they are published; this would mean using Summer Term Week 2 plans this week. However, it makes sense to work at your child’s pace and it might make more sense to finish off previous weeks’ lessons rather than starting a new week.
Please do ask for advice if you are unsure about what would be best for your child.
I have uploaded another series of SPAG slides with answers.
Another scavenger hunt!
Can you make a rainbow from items found around your house?
Have you got something for each colour in a rainbow?
You get a bonus point if you can arrange them into a rainbow shape!
