5B Home Learning Blog 30.03.2020

Date: 30th Mar 2020 @ 9:40am

Hello 5B, smiley

I hope you all had a lovely weekend and are raring to start your new home learning activities.  Your activities are at the bottom of our class page again. Go to class pages, choose 5B, scroll down and find 'Files to Download' and then choose 'Year 5 Home Learning week beginning 30.03.20'. If you have any questions, you can reply to this blog or use 2Email by logging into your Purple Mash account.

It’s been so lovely to hear from so many of you sharing your daily routines and activities. What was your favourite activity, which you completed last week? If you have any work from last week that you’re particularly proud of please reply to this blog. You could share a sentence or two with us – I’d love to hear them! smiley

I’ve really enjoyed listening to the free audio books that are available online by various authors. There is something very special about listening to an author read! Have you listened to any? If not, I would highly recommend you do so this week during your reading sessions! Please keep reading a little bit each day. 

Well done to everyone who has logged on to TTRS this week; we are always checking the leaderboard so make sure you are going on regularly.

It’s also important that you keep yourself active so make sure you do some regular exercise with Joe Wicks. Don’t forget there are plenty of fun activities to choose from in the 'Home Learning' section on the school website. 

Finally, did anyone see the International Space Station soaring over us this weekend? Did you know it is made up of many pieces, which astronauts had to send up individually on rockets and put together from 1998 to 2000? Ever since the year 2000, people have lived on the ISS.

Have a lovely week and don't forget to let me know what you get up to.

Mrs Berry smiley

Hi Ella,

I hope you had a lovely weekend : )

On your character map you may want to have different headings such as: description, personality traits, feelings, appearance, behaviour, actions and anymore you may wish to add. You should retrieve evidence from the text to support your answer. You could even have an inference section - what can you infer about the character based on what you've read.

I hope this helps!

Hi Mrs Berry,
I've written a poem using -ation wortds (lesson 4) but don't know where the 'spelling poem blog' is to share it.
Our frustration at the unknown duration of our incarceration.
In isolation awaiting the creation of a vaccination.
Only education and online communication for recreation.
We yearn for liberation in anticipation of a vacation.

Here is my poem using -ation words:

Late one summer evening, the Scientists were working on method validation,
they were excited about their new creation,
although, at times, it had caused much frustration,
An amazing Robot! Had been secretly created, with lots of plans to take over the nation,
Their amazing experiment had caused them delight, but then they found that night,
they were going to have such a fright!
How would the Scientist's stop their migration, whilst on vacation?

I don't understand how you change a decimal into a fraction
how do you change a decimal into a fraction ?

Mrs Berry wrote:

Hi Eva,

That's a really good question - thank you for asking : )

Percent means 'out of 100' so 45 out of 100 is 45%. As a fraction 45% would be 45/100 (45 hundredths or 4 tenths and 5 hundredths).

Draw yourself a place value chart and write the number 45 into it.
Underneath write the number 0.45 into your place value chart. What do you notice? Clue: think about your place value knowledge! How many places/columns have the digits moved?
Answer: You've divided by 100.

Why do you divide by 100 because percent means 'out of 100' so you divide your numerator by the denominator (100).
So, 45 divided by 100 = 0.45

Watch 'Lesson 4 - Step 9 - Percentages as fractions and decimals' to help you.

I hope this helps Eva. If you have any more questions please ask!

Hi Mrs Berry,
I'm finally on 100 reads! Here is my poem. Its called Sensation for information. I hope you like it...
Sensation for information
I do not have an adoration for preparation,
So when my friends had a fixation for restoration,
My anger took an elevation,
I was past admiration,
I went over for an identification,
But there wasn't much personalization,
and there was no recognisation of classification,
So I added some specialization,
But I caused an inflammation,
This is why you should,
Never have a sensation for information!

Hi Mrs Berry,
Here is my -ation poem, it is called 'For the NHS'.

Let's all clap as a nation,
To show our love and appreciation
For the NHS

They're trying to find a vaccination,
A type of medication,
So let's show our adoration
For the NHS

They're doing lots of preparation,
To give us information,
So let's show our dedication
To the NHS.

I hope you like it!
Speak soon,
Daniel

Hi Mrs Berry
How do you save the News Paper on purple mash and how do I share it with you? I have done lots of maths, for exercise I took Cooper out for a walk and just did my -ation poem/song.
Hope you have a good day.

P.S: I have read Harry Potter and I really enjoyed it.

The satisfaction of levitation
resulted in the elevation of admiration

The people in isolation
no longer felt the sensation and fixation of the lack of determination

The preparation of education
provided them with the information and determination of the levitation sensation.

Hope you enjoyed my poem.. have a good day!

Good Morning everyone and Happy Friday!

Thankyou for your help Mrs Berry on decimals and fractions - I have watched the flashback 4 video and that has helped a lot

I came up with the idea for the poem as I am watching a tv show with my Mom about robots (called Lost in Space)

Did anyone see the International Space Station last night? We think we saw it!

Hi Ollie,

I love the name Cooper - I hope he is behaving himself! If you email me on Purple Mash using 2Email you can attach your work. I look forward to reading it.

I'm glad you enjoyed Harry Potter. Do you have the sequel that you could read next? Keep up the amazing work Ollie!

I hope you and your family have a lovely day.

Hi Eva,

Happy Friday to you too : )

No problem at all Eva always here to help! I'm glad the video helped you.

The program you're watching sounds interesting - is that the one where they crash-land on an unknown planet? I love how you took inspiration from that to help write your poem. Very creative Eva - well done!

I think I saw the International Space Station on Sunday night. I've been doing some research about it this week and I've found out some really cool facts!

I hope you and your family have a lovely day.
