Friday 19th June 2020


To finish the week, today you are going to be writing a balanced argument. There are some examples provided but you can also choose your own topic. It could even be about what is currently going on in the news and if year 5 children should be next to return to school.  Remember to include the different features and sentence tools you have looked at this week. Click here to access the video and lesson information. You can find the features you should always be aiming to include as a Year 5 writer here.


We are going to continue to follow the activities provided by White Rose. Today is their Friday Maths Challenge. The most suitable questions for Year 5 are 1 to 5. But why don’t you work with your family on the rest of the problems? Do as many as you can! Help each other out. You can click here to visit the Year 5 area of their website to download the questions, answers and a challenge certificate if you would like to. These tasks also link to the materials on the BBC Bitesize website. 

Topic (Music)

Like last Friday, today there will be a music focus and we are going to use some of the activities from ‘Ten Pieces at Home’ from the BBC.

There are different weeks available on the website, but we are going to look at the one for this week: the music of Mason Bates.
