Hello and welcome to Term 6 – your final term in Year 5!
We hope you had a lovely week off.
We are still missing you all lots! We can’t wait to see some of the photos of all the things you’ve been getting up to over the half term break!
This week’s tasks
Similarly to last term, every Monday we will set tasks on here for you to complete at home.
If you have any questions about the work, or just want to say hi, you can use the ‘Comment’ section below (don’t forget to use your initials only, and you don’t need to put an email address).
Please send us your brilliant work and photos using our class email address: 5G@westrise-jun.e-sussex.sch.uk Don’t worry if you can’t email us your work. Please keep it all in a safe place, and once we are back at school you can bring it in to show us J
If you have any other queries, questions or concerns please ask your adult to email Mr Fairclough: firstname.lastname@example.org
Have a look on MyMaths for your tasks. Check out our feedback on the tasks you have completed.
Don’t forget to check out some of the Games, too! This week, we would like you to have a go at playing these two games:
- Angler Game
- Custard Fight
(find them both in Games / Angles)
Use the blog to let us know which game you liked best, and why!
Practical Maths Activities:
- Dice Game:
Roll two dice (or one twice!). Make a 2 digit number from the two numbers you have rolled. Now show 4 ways of making this number, suing the 4 operations ( + – x ÷)
e.g., if I roll a 3 and a 5, my number is 35. I might then show how I can calculate this number using each operation:
29 + 6 = 35 92 – 57 = 35 5 x 7 = 35 105 ÷ 3 = 35
(You could use an online dice, or write the numbers 1-6 on little pieces of paper and then pick them randomly, if you don’t have dice.)
- Roman Numerals
How many of the Roman Numerals can you remember? We wrote our date using them in Latin lessons all year! See if you can write out the numerals up to 20, then try these numbers, too:
27, 32, 41, 50, 60, 75, 80, 96, 100, 500, 1000, 2020
Use this website if you’ve forgotten them! https://www.mathsisfun.com/roman-numerals.html
Try writing some other numbers in Roman Numerals, too! Perhaps you could try writing your door number, or the ages and years of birth of everyone in your family!
Here are this week’s spellings. You know lots of fun ways to practise these; rainbow writing, acrostic poems, blue for vowels, plus all the other activities we have carried out in class. On Friday, ask someone at home to test you on these by putting them into sentences (dictation), just like we do at school. Comment on this Blog post or email us to let us know how you got on.

“Get Caught Reading!”
This week, we would love to see photos of you in your favourite place to read. It could be anywhere. Alongside the photo we would like you to write a short description why that place is your favourite place to read. We would love to share these on the blog so please bare that in mind!
What exactly is the story of the Trojan Horse?
The story of the wooden horse of Troy is over 3,000 years old. It is one of the most well-known and popular stories from any time in history, but historians strongly disagree about how authentic (truthful and accurate) it really is.
Some believe that the story is factual, whilst others believe it is merely a Greek myth (no more than a traditional story that people accept as truthful even though they almost certainly didn’t happen).
For this task I would like you to reach a decision as to whether the story of the Trojan Horse is historical fact or merely a myth.
To do this you will have to evaluate the evidence that exists, look at stories on the internet, watch you tube videos, ask family what they remember of the story. Remember that the story has changed a lot as it has been passed down through the generations.
Have fun being a historical detective!
We know that some of you really enjoyed doing last term’s Science investigation! We just know you will love this week’s!
This week’s Science investigation is all about bones!
You will need the following items for the practical investigation in this lesson: a plastic cup, mug or similar shaped plastic container, an egg or a chicken bone or a piece of chalk and some distilled vinegar, which is available in most supermarkets
