Year 5 – Week beginning Mon 4th May
Hello Hawthorn and Sycamore,
I hope you were all able to access the tasks last week. If you are struggling to use any of the websites, please let us know and we will advise you. Once again there are 5 maths and English lessons to complete. Try to complete one a day – we know this isn’t possible for everyone – so aim for at least 3. It is a special Bank Holiday on Friday so let us know how you celebrate VE day.
It’s best to follow the White Rose maths lessons in order, so don’t worry if you are not on the week set on the blog.
This week we’ve also included SPaG, science, special VE history and art.
We love receiving your emails. If you haven’t been in touch yet, please do send us an email before the end of the week. email@example.com firstname.lastname@example.org
We will display your work on our Y5 Gallery post so look out for it!
Mon – Wed Miss Taylor will complete Kensuke’s Kingdom and then begin The Skylark’s War
Thurs – Surprise video from Mrs Byfield
We are both missing you all dearly but so grateful that technology can bring us so much closer together.
Miss Taylor and Mrs Byfield
These are your 5 lessons for this week. Work through the lessons in order as they build over the week. Remember you can always pause the video if you need more time to complete a task.
We will continue to use White Rose Home Learning. If you have completed week 1 move onto week 2, continuing your work on decimals. If you haven’t completed all the lessons in week 1, start there. https://whiterosemaths.com/homelearning/year-5/
- Watch the video.
- Complete the activity.
- Check your answers.
- If you’ve made a mistake can you figure out why?
There are 5 quizzes for you to complete on www.spag.com
Your username and passwords are in your homework book.
Task 1 – Science: Salt Crystals Experiment
We have another fantastic experiment to try from Cosmo in Year 5.
- Cotton or string
- 1 clean clear container
- 1 button
- 1 old pen
- Food colouring (optional)
- Kettle and an adult.
- Start by tying the button to the end of a piece of cotton.
- Tie the other end to the pen, making sure the button is suspended above the bottom of the jar. Dangling so it doesn’t touch the bottom.
- Next get an adult to help by boiling the kettle.
- Stir that salt into the water in a jug, and food colouring if you’re using it. Keep stirring until no more salt will dissolve.
- Carefully pour the salt water solution into the jar and lay the pen across the top with the button in the water.
- Put on a windowsill and wait for your crystals to grow.
- It can take a few days or more so be patient
What has happened for this change to occur? Look at https://www.bbc.co.uk/bitesize/articles/z6pyvk7
Task 2 – History
- Can you find out what VE day celebrates? This video might help.
- Can you see if you can find any primary sources (people who were there at the time) to gather more information? The Imperial War Museum website is an amazing resource.
- Could you organise a ‘street party’ in your garden for your family? You could make bunting, bake a cake (watch out for Mrs Byfield’s video) and listen to some 1940s music.
Task 3 – Art
Watch the video and complete the activity.
We would love to see what you have created – check out the Year 5 gallery! Can you attach a photo in an email to email@example.com or firstname.lastname@example.org

Thank you for letting me know how you have got on with your learning this week. It is really lovely to hear from you. I am so happy to hear you enjoyed the lessons online. The SPaG quiz was a challenging one, there are others you could have a go at next week. Brilliant! The fact they are getting longer means your answers are correct. I am so proud of how you have adapted to learning from home – you should be too!
Your bunting sounds amazing! Wishing you a happy and sunny long weekend and hope you are able to make tomorrow a special day.
This is what I have done for this week. I try to do all the activities and to enjoy the lovely weather with my family.
I have done 1-5 lessons and really enjoyed it.
I did activities from the week 3 on math and got all the answers right.
I did 35 words with their antonyms and synonyms and a sentence for each one
I have done the treasure texture thing. I will send a photo to Mrs Byfield.
I have done the experiment but I’am still waiting to see what will happen.
I did three quizzes and got two 80% and one 70%. Later today i am going to finish the other 2.
Victory in Europe Day, generally known as VE Day (United Kingdom) or V-E Day (USA), is a day celebrating the formal acceptance by the Allies of World War II of Nazi Germany’s unconditional surrender of its armed forces on Tuesday, 8 May 1945.
I have learned a lot of facts. I read few information about this and discuss with my dad some facts.
You have been working so hard. I hope you had a really relaxing VE weekend with your family to recover!
Please send me a photo of your art for the gallery and also of the science experiment once it is complete.
We would love the recipe for the honeycomb too!
