Year 5

This page has been set up to support home learning for Year 5 pupils whilst the school is closed due to the Coronavirus.  Each week, a Home Learning Overview will be uploaded by 8am Monday morning for parents/carers to access, along with additional resources and web-based links for pupils to explore.  Should you have any questions or wish to request a login and password reminder for online resources, please contact the Year 5 teachers via email using this email address: year5@southwood.bardaglea.org.uk.  One of the Year 5 team will check the inbox on a daily basis and get back to you as soon as possible.  Please note that we are setting Home Learning activities to support routine and education, however we do not expect parents to teach new concepts and understand that many of you are trying to work from home too.  At the very least, pupils should be encouraged to read every day and practise arithmetic skills.  We urge families to follow Government guidance and to stay safe.

Monday

Today you are going to start reading the book. You will need something that you can write your notes and ideas upon.

 

Reading

Read pages 1 to 4. You will notice that there are different styles of writing on each page. Discuss what you have read with someone, if you can. Make some notes about the different sections and consider the questions below.

Notes written under pictures. How are these written? Why do you think the author is including these?

Quotes from Shakespeare plays. Why has the author used these? What are the quotes? Which play are they from?

There are speech bubbles. How do these help us understand how people behaved in those times? How did adults treat children? Do you notice how some of the speech bubbles use the quotes?

 Formal typed paragraphs. In what tense are they written? What sort of information do they give?

What have you learnt about Shakespeare? What else have you learnt?

Remember to share your notes on Dojo.

 

Reading out Loud

Think about how people may have spoken in this time, especially the wealthy people with money. Read the pages out loud in the way you think it would have been spoken. Record your performance out loud.

Many things have changed in London since the days of Shakespeare. The streets weremade of cobble stones and filled wit people where as now, they are filled with cars and made of tarmac. People used to get around London on river ferries and horses and now it is by bus and tube train.

 

Upload your paragraph on Dojo.

What is a life a life cycle?

Do all living things have the same life cycle?

 

Look at the video below showing the life cycle of a frog:

Tuesday

Reproduction

Reproduction is the process in which new living things are made. Usually, a male and a female are needed to make a baby, but as you have learnt from the different life cycles the way in which babies are born and grow is very different. For example, chickens lay eggs, the eggs hatch and a new chick is born. A human mother carries her baby in her womb for around nine months before the baby is born.

 

See video below:

https://www.bbc.co.uk/bitesize/topics/zgssgk7/articles/z9xb39q

 

Gestation

After reproduction comes gestation. Gestation is the period of time in which a mother carries her young giving birth. As previously mentioned, in humans this is around 9 months.

 

Look at the link below to show you the difference in gestation periods in different animals:

https://www.mentalfloss.com/article/24238/quick-10-10-gestation-periods-animal-kingdom

 

Use the link below to choose 5 different animals and their gestation periods. Try to choose animals that are different in size such as rabbit, dog, cow, elephant, whale.

https://beef2live.com/story-gestation-period-cows-mammals-0-109436

 

Now create a simple table that compares the gestation periods of animals:

It may look like this:

Animal

Average size (KG)

Gestation Periods (Days)

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

You can use your table to make a simple line graph to compare your results. Use the link below to help you do this:

Art and Music Week

Summer 2 - Week 6

 

W/C 6.7.20

Art - Colour

Music – The Planets/Space

Monday

This week we are going to study the work of Vincent Van Gogh and think about how artists use colour.

Today read this page about Van Gogh and his use of colour.

https://www.liveabout.com/palettes-of-the-masters-vincent-van-gogh-2573701

 

Listen/Appraise

Gustav Holst: ‘Mars’ from the Planets

Holst’s Planets Suite depicts the mystical side of each planet.

Mars is also known as ‘The Bringer of War’.

Watch & Listen:  https://www.bbc.co.uk/programmes/articles/ 

14ZjT5yjnKQRdKVsqrLzk1x/mars-from-the-planets-by-gustav-holst 

 

Have you or anyone in your household heard this music before?

What does this music remind you off? Does it sound similar to another piece of space music?

Tap/clap along with the music.

What does ‘March’ mean in music?

What instruments can you hear?

 

Start practising the Sing-a-long Songs (One Moment One People & Power in the Music) see webpage:  Music @ Southwood

Tuesday

Can you remember the primary and secondary colours? Label the colour wheel below or make your own and label it with the words primary and secondary

.

Compose

Go through the music again – how many taps/claps fit in comfortably with the music?

Try saying these words (‘Get in a spaceship go to Mars’) to help you 

 

First, clap the rhythm as you say the words

Then, say the words in your head only while you clap the rhythm

 

Finally, clap the rhythm along with the music – does it match? Did you perform it neatly?

Now, let’s have a go at creating a simple rhythm composition.

Music Tools/Equipment needed: pen/pencil, small scrap of paper/whiteboard, hands to tap/clap with

 

How to create:

Begin by tapping a steady pulse with your foot.

You will need some rhythms to fit on top of this pulse.

To create the rhythm, ask a question such as ‘What happens in space?’ Your answer must be a full sentence.

Say the sentence over and over (repeated rhythmic pattern).

Clap on each syllable of the word.

Now, add the steady pulse with your foot.

Play the words as often as you want.                         

Now just clap/tap the rhythm – say the words quietly to yourself in your head.

How many different ways can you play this? Louder/quieter, faster/slower.

Wednesday

Complementary colours are opposite one another on the colour wheel. They are: yellow-purple, red-green, blue-orange. Create 2 colour wheels with pencils or paint, then make a pattern in one and cut it out, placing the shapes on its complimentary colour in the other wheel, like this one:

Compose (cont):

Look back at the composition you started.

Is there anything you would do differently? Or change?

Make those changes now.

Decide how you would like the final work to sound – do you want to clap it?

Do you have an instrument like a drum, keyboard or a recorder? If you do, choose some notes to play instead of tapping the rhythm with your hands.

You could also tap it on the table or the floor.

Decide how many times you want to repeat it – will there be a special introduction or ending?

Add the final touches.

Practise it until you like what you hear.

 

Practise and Perform: Find someone to listen to you (your audience) and perform it to them.

Ask them how you can make your work even better.

Record your work. Use an audio or video recording.

Which complimentary colours has Van Gogh used? What effect has it had? Find some more Van Gogh paintings online where he uses complimentary colours.

 

Self-Assess and Share your work:

 

Listen to the recording you made.

Make any last minute changes.

Listen and think about your work – do you enjoy the sound? Can you add interest by playing it louder/quieter? Faster/slower?

Share your work so we can all hear it.
