Owl Class Home Learning 18.11.20

Good morning.  Here are today’s tasks:

*English – Unit from The Oak National Academy.  Using the link below, find Year 5 week beginning Monday 2nd November.  Select Wednesday’s English lesson for Year 5.  It is called ‘To write the first paragraph of a persuasive letter’.  Follow the instructions in the lesson to work through the teaching video and the related activity.


*Maths – today we are looking at strategies for mental calculations.  Take a look at the teaching slides and/or the video clip before having a go at the worksheet.  Mark using the attached answer sheet.





*Reading – make sure that you are reading for at least 10 minutes per day.

*Times Table practice – log onto TTRockstars and spend at least 20 minutes improving your quick recall of times tables.

*DT – We are continuing our shelters topic in school today.  Last week, we looked at how different materials could be strengthened as well as their strength and water resistance.  This week, we are starting to design our own model bomb shelter.  Look at the sheet attached that has a picture of an Anderson Shelter in the middle of it.  Around the outside, can you draw and annotate 4 designs that improve on the one in the middle?  You could change the shape in one, the materials used in another etc.

Have a good day,
