Home Page

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

Likes and Dislikes

Spend some time going back through the book. Make some notes on the parts you liked, giving a little explanation as to why you liked it. Do the same for the parts that you don’t like as much. Remember to explain why you don’t like them. You can discuss this with someone in your house.

For example, liked midsummer nights dream because it was funny. Disliked Macbeth because of the murders. Go through the book and note down your likes and dislikes and make sure you say which numbers you are referring to.

 

 Connections

Did the text remind you of anything? It might be something you have read, or seen or even something that has happened to you. These are known as connections. Add your connections to your notes.

 

Puzzles and Surprises

Was there anything that you found strange, unusual, puzzling or surprising? For example, ‘Oh I die, Horatio, the rest is silence’, on page 34.(puzzles).

 

Questions

Write some questions that you might have.

 

What do you think? – Grid

Download the grid from the school website or collect a printout from school. Use the notes to help you to fill out the grid. Turn your notes from above into bullet opoints for each section. Each section is explained on the grid and above.

Summarise the key points of the article in a bullet pointed list. Discuss with an adult.

 

Wednesday

Tenses

Look at the following two sentences from pages 27- 28:

  • The theatre had been built by Richard Burbage’s father in 1576 on land leased from a rich property owner, Giles Allen.
  • The playhouse where the Lord Chamberlain’s men perform is called the Theatre and it stands on land leased from Giles Allen, a rich London property owner.

Discuss what you think the difference is between the way the two sentences are written.

 

The main difference is the tense. One is written in the present tense and the other is written in the past tense. Which is which? How do you know?

 

Tense can be recognised by the words used. For example the word ‘is’ suggests it is happening now (present) and the word ‘was’ suggests it has happened (past).

 

The book

Throughout the book there are four main tenses used. Examples are given below:

Past

Present

Present Perfect

Past perfect

I saw it

I see it

I have seen it

I had seen it.

 

Make some notes and give some examples of each tense from the book.

 

Changing Tenses

Choose a section of the book. For example, ‘Will’s school days’ on page 3. Copy out this section. Underneath, copy out the section in the opposite tense. For example, if you choose to copy a section in the past tense then change it underneath to the present.

 

Upload your examples on Dojo.

 

Choose a book from Oxford Owl

 

Book Log Task 19–      Design a new blurb for the back cover of the book. You can use colours and pictures as well as writing.

Thursday

Parenthesis

Look at the following sentence which appears on page 7:

 

Calfskin gloves are the height of Elizabethan fashion and, at the age of about 15, Will begins to learn his father’s business.

 

 What is the purpose of the commas here?

The words inside the commas are extra information which is also known as Parenthesis.

 

The word, parenthesis, is Greek and means ‘putting in beside’. Parenthesis is a word/phrase inserted into a sentence to make a comment on or give more information to your reader about something you have just written. Brackets, dashes and commas are used to signal the parenthesis.

 

Write down the following sentence which has the punctuation missing:

 By 1588 many others including the Roman Catholic Priest William Hartley were executed as well.

Write out this sentence and see if you can add the commas correctly. Check your work by finding the correctly punctuated sentence on page 14.

 

Finding Examples

Go through the book and find some more examples of parenthesis and copy them on to a piece of paper.

 

Final Challenge

Insert your own parenthesis into the following sentence:

William Shakespeare was born in 1564.

How many different sentences can you write?

              Friday

Final Biography

Use the booked and the information you have learned to write a biography about Shakespeare. A biography should be written in the 3rd person and the past tense.

 

Your biography can be divided into the following sections:

Early Life – Where and when was he born? Who were is mother and father? Who did he marry?

Moving to London – Why did he move to London? What did he do there?

Southwood’s Book of Hopes: Our Lockdown Stories

For our PSHE Week, we would like the children to share their Lockdown experiences, real or otherwise so that they could become a part of our book of hopes. The aim of the Southwood Book of Hopes is to encourage our children to not only be creative with their writing but to also share their thoughts, feelings and experiences during the Lockdown. They can either make up stories or write their own experiences. The book of hopes will include all the amazing work created by the children as an inspiration for children in the future to feel inspired by their stories. They can choose to write a short story, poem, story through Art, jokes, heroic tales or draw pictures using the following:

Key Headings:

Non-Fiction: True Stories

Fiction: Lockdown Creativity

Sub-Headings:

Kindness

Nature

Animals

Family

Adventure

Fun

The idea is for them to have great FUN whilst doing it, it can be as simple as a painting or drawing or as complex as a short story or poem.

Parents, please can you send in your children’s work to their class teachers so that they could be included in our book of hopes. The link below is an example of the Book of Hopes that have some amazing stories for the children to read and to support their writing.
