Learning Together at Home – 08.06.20

Monday 8th June

Good afternoon P5H,

Hope you had a lovely weekend. Thanks for the quiz on Friday – super questions and was fun! Will do the same this Friday!

Just a reminder – Personal Projects are due in on Friday. There is an Assignments set up for this – please add yours to this when completed. As we said at the beginning, if you can’t do it then please don’t worry. As the Personal Projects are due there is no new grid.

Here is today’s learning. As always, please ask if you have any questions.

Have a lovely day everyone!

Miss Martin


Spelling – We are learning to spell unfamiliar words using our spelling rule. Please see the document for this week’s activities. SPELLING P5 WEEK 31

Reading – We are learning to create questions to show our understanding.

This week, you are going to be the Question Master! Watch this clip and create 6 questions (you must know the answer yourself and the answer must be in the clip).  https://www.literacyshed.com/wishgranter.html

Use the Bloom’s question starters in your pack sent home when we finished school to help you. If you don’t have it then here is one similar. T2-E-960-Blooms-Taxonomy-Posters-Using-Questions-for-Learning_ver_2 Try to ask one of each question type – if this is too tricky, then ask what you can.

E.g. Remembering – Who is the man in the clip?

Understanding – How is the woman feeling when her wish isn’t granted?


Word of the day – “scrawny”

Remember to copy the word into the back page of your jotter and find/record the definition.

Optional Task:  Tell a Story using the sentence starter below

Grit was shocked to see how scrawny he looked when he stepped out of the shower


Mental Maths – We are learning to use different operations to solve problems quickly and accuracy.

Play the Countdown game. Remember to “try to think outside the box”. Share some examples with me on Teams. Lets see who gets the closest to their number! Try doing at least 4 targets.


Numeracy – We are learning to order fractions.

Star Steps:

  • Find a common denominator (a number that is a multiple of every denominator)
  • Work out the equivalent fractions for these – remember what you do to the denominator, you must do to the numerator.
  • Put the original fractions into order, using the new equivalent ones to help.


Here is a clip to explain how to order fractions.


It is quite a tricky concept so here is a little more explanation (you may see a familiar face!):


Complete one of the following tasks:






Remember to try to keep playing on Sumdog. A new challenge has been set – all about fractions.

OPTIONAL TASK – Friday’s Quiz: Just like last week we are going to have a quiz at Friday’s meeting. If you can then please think of a question to ask. Since how it is the school’s summer/beach theme then try to make it related to the summer. However, if not then don’t worry.
