Friday 3rd July 2020


To finish the week, today you are going to be writing a newspaper report. There are some suggestions for a topic or choose your own. Remember to include the different features and sentence tools you have looked at this week. Click here to access the video and lesson information. You can find the features you should always be aiming to include as a Year 5 writer here.



We are going to continue to follow the activities provided by White Rose. Today is their Friday Maths Challenge. The most suitable questions for Year 5 are 1 to 5. But why don’t you work with your family on the rest of the problems? Do as many as you can! Help each other out. You can click here to visit the Year 5 area of their website to download the questions, answers and a challenge certificate if you would like to. These tasks also link to the materials on the BBC Bitesize website. 


Topic (Music)

Like last Friday, today there will be a music focus and we are going to use some of the activities from ‘Ten Pieces at Home’ from the BBC.

There are different weeks available on the website, but we are going to look at the one from this week:  Gabriel Prokofiev's ‘Concerto for Turntables and Orchestra’.
