Good Morning Year 5! And Happy Monday!

Today's maths is all about fractions. Remember, the denominator stays the same when adding or subtracting fractions. 

It also looks at turning improper fractions into mixed numbers - something we haven't done much of in class.

If you want to practice some more, here are some additional questions for you to work out:

Turn the following improper fractions into mixed numbers.

1. 3/2

2. 6/4

3. 12/7

4. 15/6

5. 9/4

Health and wellbeing challenges from Mrs Glover

Date: 27th Mar 2020 @ 2:57pm

Hello, Mrs Glover here! 

I hope everyone is staying safe, having fun and working hard on your learning. I'm going to post a Health and Wellbeing Challenge every day for people to do if they choose to. I'll be doing them all too and posting pictures where I can. Please feel free to e-mail any pictures or comments to your home learning e-mail addresses!

Challenge number 1: Go on a mindfulness walk. Write or draw 5 things that you can see, hear, feel, smell or touch (make sure you have an adult with you if necessary and stay far way from people you may see when you're out, although you can still say a friendly hello!) You could even do this in your garden if you have one!

Here's a picture of my mindfulness walk that I went on at lunch time today!

I saw trees and water, I heard birds and rustling, I could smell different plants and I could feel the sun on my face :-)

Hello from Mrs Turner

Date: 27th Mar 2020 @ 10:03am

Hello again everyone! 

I hope you are all keeping well and enjoying all the home learning your teachers have been giving you to do. I have seen some of your emails and it looks like you are doing brilliantly so well done!  I have been working away at home, I start every morning with the Joe Wicks work out, I wonder how many of you have been doing it too. Remember it’s so important to keep active even when you are at home. 

I had another thought, yesterday Penny helped me with the washing, we paired the socks together! I thought this is a good time for you all to be helping out your grown-ups at home. I am sure they would really appreciate it. 

I miss you all so much and can't wait to get back to school. 

Take care,

Mrs Turner

There's are some amazing things you can explore on the NASA website - they even have a specialist section just for children!

Good Morning Year 5!

Today's science lesson is focused on insect life cycles.

Can you find out any extra information about the role of the female worker or the male drone honey bee?

Remember, complete metamorphosis is when the adult looks entirely different to the newborn. Incomplete metamorphosis is when the newborn looks like a 'smaller version' of the adult.

Let me know what you find on

Date: 25th Mar 2020 @ 11:50pm

Good morning everyone! 

It made me giggle yesterday when I saw myself in the background of Denico's and Rhianna's photograph! It also made me smile, because it showed me that you are benefitting from the videos and it made me feel very helpful - so thank you!

Today's focus in maths, is all to do with scales and converting measurements (grams and kilograms).

If you don't have the worksheet, I've also attached it to the video. Whatever worksheets you choose to do, is your choice - but if you feel like doing some conversions, enjoy the video!

If you want to have some more practice, have a go at the questions below. Remember, there are 1000g in a kg. So if you are changing kg's into g's you have to x1000, if you are changing g's into kg's you have to ÷1000.

I can't wait to see your answers again.

1. 3.56kg = __g

2. 4.5kg = __g

3. 5600g = __kg

4. 4200g = __kg

5. 1.68kg = __g

25.03.20 - Science (+ a science challenge!)

Date: 25th Mar 2020 @ 9:34am

Good morning everyone!

Today's focus is science, and more specifically, the life cycle of mammals. Did you know that kangaroos look after their joey it their pouch when it's only the size of a bean? Did you know that platypus' produce milk in the same way they sweat? There are lots of new facts!

I have a science challenge for you all - it doesn't matter if it is with this worksheet, or with another. I want you to show a life cycle in a creative way. I want you to think about how you could present this. A drawing, a pop up, a booklet? It's your choice! This can be about any of the life cycles we've looked at in school, or that you have in your pack.

I'm looking to give outstanding to those children who have clearly put some effort in when having a go.

Good luck!

Good morning everyone! I'm loving seeing what work you've been getting on with. Well done!

Today's maths is about time - we're great at reading a digital clock (thanks to technology) but some of us struggle reading an analogue clock, so that might be something worth practising at home grown ups smiley

I've attached the sheet that I'm discussing on the video, in case you don't have it in your pack - remember, you don't need to do the sheets in a particular order, it's up to you which challenge you want to accept.

Here are some questions on time, if you want to practice this skill.

1. What is 45 minutes after 8:20?

2. What is 30 minutes after 9:15?

3. What time is half an hour before 11:10?

4. The train leaves Hogwarts at 10:15. It arrives at Diagon Alley at 11:05. How long is the train journey?

If time is a challenge you really struggle with (it's a tricky skill to learn!) have a go at some of these interactive activities:

I'm looking forward to seeing what work you get up to again smiley

Hello from Mrs Turner

Date: 23rd Mar 2020 @ 9:45am

Monday 23rd March 2020 

Good morning everyone I hope you are all up and looking forward to a day of learning at home. It is a beautiful day perhaps you can have some time in the garden. I am sorry that I wasn't in school last week, both the government and Mrs Hughes advised that I stay at home but please don't worry I am not sick! I really do miss you all, I was so enjoying going around all the school and teaching so many of you, what amazing children you are. 

Year 6 I am especially sorry that we have not had the chance to say goodbye. I remember you all so fondly from year 4 and wish you well with all that the future holds. I believe that each and every one of you has a special future and encourage to grab every opportunity that life gives you. Work hard at high school it will be so worth it. 

For everybody else I look forward to seeing you soon - imagine how great that first day will be when we are allowed back into school. I can't wait!  I have seen that Joe Wicks is doing a PE lesson every morning on line, I would encourage you to join in its so important that you stay active even when you are stuck inside. 

Stay safe and I will see you soon.

Love Mrs Turner (Hibbs)
