Reading

Spend 30 minutes reading your book today. I have decided I want to read a non-fiction book next, so if anybody has a recommendation, let me know! I'm sure Tom has a couple he could recommend!

English

You should be on with your 'Guide to Surviving Year 5' piece of writing. I had a great introduction sent to me from Ethan! Looking forward to reading the final drafts. Today, try to get the rest of it written. Remember, it needs to be neat, as I will be showing the Year 4 children on their blog. I might even ask them to email me with questions for you, and I will let you guys answer!

A reminder of the subheadings that you might want to use:

Maths

Today, we are going to look at multiplying fractions that are less than 1 by a whole number (an integer means a whole number). We have done this in school, and I often put multiplying fractions in your 10 questions, but I think it is important to cover this again.

When you multiply a fraction by an integer, you ONLY multiply the numerator (the top number) by the integer. The denominator (bottom number) stays the same. The video on the link below explains this really well. If you end up with an improper fraction (where the numerator is greater than the denominator), you can change it into a mixed number. You may also be able to simplify the fraction.

One thing I would say is that the teacher in the video prefers to simplify the improper fraction before she changes it to a mixed number. I prefer to change it to a mixed number first, but it is up to you!

So for 3/12 X 6 you multiply the numerator (the 3) by the integer (the 6).

3 X 6 = 18 so you will have 18/12.

18/12 is an improper fraction, so you can change it to a mixed number by seeing how many 12s are in 18.

That is 1 and 6/12. You can then simplify the 6/12 to 1/2 so the answer is 1 and 1/2.

When you watch the video, you will see that the teacher on there simplifies before changing to a mixed number. It doesn't matter what order you do this in, it is personal preference.

There are two activities on the link. Please do activity 2. If you want to do activity 1, this is optional, but you will need people to play the game with you!

Here are your 10 questions:

1.) 555 X 53

2.) 345 metres in kilometres.

3.) Add the Roman Numerals. XL + L =

4.) 4 and 2/3 X 3

5.) 3/4 + 5/8 + 1/16 =

6.) 7/10 as a percentage

7.) 4.005 + 1.32

8.) Which digit is in the THOUSANDTHS column? 9731.026

9.) 7 squared take away 3 cubed.

10.) What is the next number in the sequence? 6.003, 6.002, 6.001, ?

Topic

Back to our We are Britain topic today. On Tuesday, you looked at some well-known kings and queens that ruled over England or Britain since 1066.

Today, we are going to do some more research into these 6 kings and queens. But instead of just simply researching them and writing facts down, I thought we could do a little quiz. I have 15 questions for you, and every answer will be one of these 6 kings or queens:

William I (William the Conqueror)

Richard III

Henry VIII

Elizabeth I

Victoria

George VI

You will need to read up on each of them to be able to answer them. This is a new way to do research, and there are a couple of ways to do it. You could read up lots on every single king or queen on the list, and make notes and then answer the questions. Or, you could do some more 'focussed' research, where you think about what to type in the search bar. If you remember, last year in computing, we learnt about how to search smartly. Remember kidrex.org is a good and safe website for children to search on. By the way, instead of saying 'king or queen' all the time, I will be using the word 'monarch' which means either a king or queen.

1.) Which monarch reigned from 1558 - 1603?

2.) Which monarch is famous for having 6 wives?

3.) Which monarch was the child of Anne Boleyn?

4.) Which monarch is our current Queen's father?

5.) Which monarch became king after defeating Harold Godwinson at the Battle of Hastings?

6.) Which monarch reigned during the industrial revolution?

7.) Which KING had the surname Tudor?

8.) Which monarch's body was found in a car park in Leicester in 2012?

9.) Which monarch had a Shakespeare play named after them? (There are two answers to this one, either one will get you the mark! I didn't know about one of them, so I have learnt something as well!).

10.) Which monarch reigned during the second world war?

11.) Which monarch reigned for 63 years, 7 months and 2 days?

12.) Which monarch was famous for her bright orange hair?

13.) Which monarch ordered the Domesday Book to be created?

14.) Which monarch was the father of Elizabeth I?

15.) Which monarch reigned from 1066-1087?

Send your answers to my email (class5@netherthongprimary.co.uk) for marking. I would love to see your answers! If you get 15/15 you will go into the 'hall of fame' in Friday's blog post. Well done for having a go at this - some of these questions are tough!

PE

Keep up your active time! It is really important to stay active. As the weather is rubbish, if you want to share your indoor activities with me that would be great!

#### Wednesday Updates

admin **on**: Class 5

Hello Class 5! What a miserable day for weather! Hope you've still managed to have a good day. Yesterday, I got to see Seb, Esme and Max in school which was lovely! I was so pleased to see them!

Just to let you know, if you have sent me PSHE work from today, thank you so much. I won't be sharing this on the blog, as I think people's feelings are quite private. But I will reply to any work you send me, I promise!

First up, Tom has sent his weekly fact:

*Hello did you know the worlds highest above sea level toilet (I’ve been) is on Mont Blanc is France it is 15,777 feet above sea level*

Another great and random fact, Tom. I love hearing your facts!

Madison has been busy doing the Joe Wicks' exercise this week. I have found it tough this week! He has really upped the difficulty, I think!

Isla and Fred have been busy with their Top Trumps cards on the kings and queens. Keep these safe, they may help you with a special quiz I have tomorrow.

Owen has been perfecting his diving tricks! Yes, he really jumped from his trampoline into the pool! I have seen a video as proof! Just a reminder that Owen had an adult present whilst doing this! Don't try anything like this without an adult around to check it is okay!

Today, the first task is to write a very short introduction to your 'How to Survive Year 5' piece of writing. You need to write the title, then include an entertaining introduction. You might want to use rhetorical questions like 'Do you want to know how to ace Year 5?' or 'Ever wondered how to get on Mr. Kershaw's good side?'

Then, over the next two days you will be writing your guide under the subheadings we looked at yesterday. A reminder that they are:

Today, some children are returning to Netherthong. Some Reception children will be coming back and are being taught by either Mrs Oddy, Miss Hemingway or Mrs Hemingway. Next week, Year 1 and Year 6 return.

I would like you to think about how you feel about returning to school (whenever that might be).

Share with a family member your thoughts, feelings and questions about it. It is important to talk about these sorts of things. Also, I would love it if you emailed me with your thoughts, feelings or questions. I can't guarantee I will be able to answer all of your questions, but it would be nice to see how you are feeling about returning to school.

Here are some things to think about:

How are you feeling about being off school still when other classes are returning?

What thoughts do you have about returning to school?

Which emotions do you associate with returning to school?

PE

Keep being super active! Joe Wicks has been doing some cracking workouts over the last couple of weeks. Very tiring!

#### Tuesday 2nd June

Morning Class 5! Because yesterday was an Inset Day, some of you may have not got around to doing the work I set. That is okay, it is still available further down this blog for you to do if you wish.

Here are the answers to yesterday's daily questions:

1.) Where is the article? An article is a type of determiner remember. I tried to grab the tennis ball, but I slipped.

Our topic this half is We Are Britain and it all about the Kings and Queens of England and later, the United Kingdom. It is a history topic designed to help you connect between different times periods in British history. We will also be learning more about British values and what that means.

Your first task is to create a Top Trumps cards for these kings and queens. Each Top Trump card needs to have the following information on it:

Name:

Date of birth and death:

Dates they were monarch between:

Number of marriages:

Age lived to:

Amount of years as ruler:

You will need to print or draw a picture of them as well.

Here are the kings and queens you will need to research:

William I (William the Conqueror)

Richard III

Elizabeth I

Victoria

George VI

Here is a Top Trumps template if you need it. You can of course, design and draw one yourself.

PE

Keep me updated with any new activities you have been doing. It was great to see Fred pictured at the top of Holme Moss after cycling up!

I've noticed Joe Wicks has made his workouts tough in the last couple of weeks! He does extra activities at the end for those who want to go that extra mile!

#### Monday updates

Afternoon, everyone! Hope you've had a great half term. Here are some updates from the last week or so.

The tadpoles that Anna has been keeping safe have grown legs! Think back to our life cycle work and think about what comes next. What might be happening to their breathing methods?

Fred cycled up Holme Moss with his dad in 20 minutes. TWENTY MINUTES!! Amazing!

Isla has caught the jigsaw bug and completed this one with her family. 1000 pieces! Wow!

Owen went on a walk on the moors to find the wreckage of an old WW2 plane. How cool is that?

Libby F helped her sister make a pasta skeleton. Very good!
