English: Ouch! By Kevin Crossley-Holland. There is a story to read, some work on verbs to revise then some written work to complete.
Maths: Watch the video Decimals as fractions (1) - https://whiterosemaths.com/homelearning/year-5/ - then have a go at the worksheet. The answers are included, too.
Science: there is a PowerPoint on friction that will involve you completing a practical investigation (only if you can). You'll need a few bits of equipment but nothing too extravagent, hopefully. The worksheets are graded by difficulty - one star being the most straightforward, three stars the most challenging. Complete whichever feels best for you.
Stay Where You Are and Then Leave by John Boyne - our home reading book. I hope you've been reading this! If you haven't already seen it, I've been reading it section by section so you can listen along to it as you read. The videos can be found on the school YouTube channel: https://www.youtube.com/playlist?list=PLjR99w6z8zyzjrKglEfGlNT4pQZq9OtFB. Chapters 1 and 2 have been uploaded already and the rest is on its way. I'm planning on uploading some related questions for you to have a bash at, too. Go and have a listen!
Remember, this is a strange time we're living through at the minute and I'd love for you to keep a daily diary of what's going on and how it makes you feel. Your children and grandchildren will get taught about this in the future. It'd be great for you to have something you could share with them. See what you can come up with if you get the chance.
Right, have a good day. Remember to date everything you complete and stay indoors as much as you can.
Hope you're all good!
