This week is all about 'hygiene, health and heroes'. You are asked to create an information leaflet about micro-organisms after collecting facts from lots of different sources. Then you find out about the lives of three very important scientists - Edward Jenner, Louis Pasteur and Alexander Fleming. You can make a poster or comic strip and then there is a piece of writing about which you think is the greatest and why. At the end of the week, you find out more about the NHS and produce a poster or infographic and then write a letter. It all sounds very interesting!
This weeks maths teaches you some of the links between fractions and decimals. We have discussed this before. They are just different ways of describing the same amount. Half a pizza is the same as 0.5 of a pizza - same amount of pizza just a different way of saying it. It then goes on to thousandths which we have looked at in class and then rounding, ordering and comparing decimals all of which we have done a lot of in our daily starters. Watch the videos and think about what you already know and you can do this!
The RE theme is bread. I chose this just because I've been reading this week at home about when Jesus said He was the Bread of Life. There are some lovely activites and some things to really make you think.
Here is this weeks PE Stay at Home Heroes Challenge. It's a dance and rounders challenge. Sounds interesting!
Here are some more fun science activities to try at home.
This half term, our topic in Year 5 is ancient Greece. A few weeks ago you did some work on ancient Greek myths in English. Look at the PowerPoint, do a bit of research of your own and then try the map and time line activities.
