This week, we are going to be using some resources and videos online to look at writing a character description.

Today, you will be using a character description and clarifying word meanings. Click here to access the video and lesson information.



We are going to continue to follow the activities provided by White Rose. Click here to visit the Year 5 area of their website. Today, you need to complete Summer Term Week 4 Lesson 2 (Equivalent fractions).

Watch the video and then answer the questions by clicking here to download the worksheet. Don’t worry if you can’t print it, just write the answers in your home learning book. 

You can check your answers here. 

You can also have a look at the resources on the BBC Bitesize website here. They link with the White Rose activity each day. 


Topic (Geography)

This week we are going to be focusing on geography. Yesterday you looked at the plates which cover the Earth and why they are important.

Today we are going to think about volcanoes and earthquakes, which should be a reminder of some of your work from Year 4. Carry out some research into a natural disaster which involved either a volcano or an earthquake.

Why did it happen?

Where was it?

When did it occur?

What impact did it have on the population?


You could use a video (like this one for example) to help you explain how they are linked to the tectonic plates.

Display your research in anyway you choose. This could include:

  • A leaflet
  • A newspaper article
  • A diary
  • A labelled diagram or model with a paragraph
  • A filmed television news report
  • A poster
