Using the information you collect, create an awareness poster containing: plenty of information about your animal/plant (diet, location, physical features); current conservation status; labelled diagram/drawing of your animal/plant and maybe even a section about what the public can do to help protect the animal/plant.

The aim of this poster should be to inform the reader about the animal/plant and the dangers it faces in the world at the moment. If we are informed, we can make accurate decisions.

Extension

If you chose to write about an endangered animal, write a poster for an endangered plant instead and vice versa.

Story starter!

Hours and hours had passed, and she hadn’t seen a soul. The monotony of trudging through this seemingly never-ending labyrinth was tiring, and her eyelids felt heavy. The heady scent of the pine sap and earthy moss added to her lethargic state. She felt as if she could close her eyes and sleep for a thousand years. She knew she couldn’t though; being trapped in the woods when night fell wouldn’t be a wise move. Making the most of the remaining daylight would be crucial, she knew.

A great sense of foreboding filled her, and she had a tight feeling in her chest. The trees around her, like sentinels protecting the gods of the forest, seemed to bear down upon her. The dense army of pine trees threatened her from every side. There was only one path forward, and she took it hesitantly, not knowing what awaited her in the distance…

Read through this story starter. How does it make you feel? What mood do you think the author is trying to give?

Week beginning 18th May

Maths

Activity 1

Have a look at these proper fractions. Can you simplify them by finding their highest common factor and dividing the numerator and the denominator? Check your answer is in its simplest form.

Simplifying Fractions

Activity 2

Now that you’ve mastered simplifying fractions, have a look at these improper fractions. Convert them to mixed number fractions by dividing the numerator by the denominator. This is how many wholes there are, what’s left is the fraction. E.g.

18/5                18÷5 = 3 remainder 3      =     3  3/5

Converting Improper Fractions to Mixed Number

Activity 3

How about the other way around? Change these mixed numbers into improper fractions by multiplying the whole number by the denominator then adding the numerator. E.g.

5  2/5            5 x 5 = 25 + 2 = 27              = 27/5

Mixed Number to Improper

Top Tips:

Remember where the decimal point is.

Write the column headings at the top (M, HTH, TTH, TH, H, T, O . t, h, th) if you need to.

If you’re asked to explain your reasoning, always try to show a calculation as well – it helps focus an answer that might have been unclear in just words alone.

Activity 2

The Nasty Game

We have played this in class before. Here is a reminder of the rules.

The Nasty Game Rules

1000s 100s 10s 1s . 1/10 1/100
Miss N 7 .
Mr C .

You will need a random number generator (online) and set it between 1-9. You will take it in turns to generate a number. You are trying to make your number the biggest possible and the other person’s as small as possible. Miss Nelson goes first and gets a 7. Miss Nelson can choose where she puts this digit. She can put it in my row or her own. Numbers in red have been placed by Miss Nelson and Mr Cunliffe’s are in blue.

Mr C rolls a 3 and puts it in Miss Nelson’s row.

1000s 100s 10s 1s . 1/10 1/100
Miss N 3 7 .
Mr C .

 

Miss Nelson then rolls a 6.

1000s 100s 10s 1s . 1/10 1/100
Miss N 3 7 .
Mr C 6 .

 

Mr C then rolls a 4!

1000s 100s 10s 1s . 1/10 1/100
Miss N 3 7 .
Mr C 4 6 .

 

Because of place value, Mr C has already won the first point!!! WOOP!!! At this point we would fill in place holders where needed for the rest of the columns, so Mr C’s number would be 4600 and Miss Nelson’s would be 3700!

Play someone at home and see who can get to 10 points first.

Reading

Ask everyone in your house about their favourite and why they like it. Using this information, create a family recommendations poster of great books.

You never know, you might inspire an entire nation to read your favourite books!

SPAG

Remember how to use parenthesis? I’m sure you do (hope you do) but just in case, here’s a little reminder.

A parenthesis is a word, phrase, or clause inserted into a sentence as an explanation or afterthought. When a parenthesis is removed, the surrounding text is still grammatically sound.

For example:

Miss Nelson (the wittiest Year 5 teacher) is writing this sentence.

I’ve used brackets because I want you to notice my parenthesis. Brackets grab the attention of the reader.

Mr Cunliffe, on the other hand, has just finished a revitalising walk.

I’ve used commas because my parenthesis is not the focus. It does however draw your attention back to my previous sentence as a comparison; so it’s still important.

They both missed their classes of children – the best children ever – and wanted to be back in school with them.

I’ve used dashes to highlight the parenthesis as perhaps the most important aspect of the sentence here.

 Below are links to different SPaG activities linked to spotting parenthesis. Choose D for a challenge, E for a harder challenge and GD for a super challenge.

The greatest challenge of all however, will be using parenthesis yourself in your own sentences. Try to write a short paragraph using some of the different punctuation. No need to overdo it though! A parenthesis can be as subtle as you choose.

What do we remember about factors and multiples? We did lots of work on finding multiples by using our times tables e.g.

Multiples of 7

7, 14, 21, 28, 35, 42, 49, 56, 63, 70, 77, 84

Factors are numbers that divide into another number exactly; leaving no remainders. E.g.

7 is a factor of all of the above numbers.

Task

Can you design and create some artistic factor trees or factor bugs? They can look very simple and mathematical however they could look fun and decorative!

Remember to find factors of 20, start with 1 and 20 then work your way up. Just because there isn’t a factor to pair with 3…doesn’t mean there isn’t one to go with 4. So don’t stop until you’ve found them all.

Create a factor bug or factor tree for the following numbers or choose your own.
