Year 5 Home Learning Work for Friday 12th June
Use the spreadsheet below to set yourself a times table grid.
Ask someone at home to test you on this week's spellings.
I would like us to create a quiz about children's books.
Today, you will be coming up with the questions for me! (Here's an example: Who wrote 'Fing'?)
Think about all the best books you have read.
Make up ten questions - try to make sure they are quite challenging, but not so difficult that no-one will know the answer! Check that you have the correct answer.
When you have ten ready and checked, send them in to me in an email and I will put them together to make a class quiz.
History - Why did the Mayan civilisation become so successful?
Last week you found out that the Maya were very successful, building large cities and surviving for many hundreds of years.
But, they achieved all of this in a very difficult place: Central America is either very mountainous (with many volcanoes) or covered in dense tropical jungle.
First, you will need to decide which 2 you think are the least important: discard these two cards.
Now you have 4 cards. Think carefully about the most important reason and place this in position at the top, with the least important now at the bottom and the two others in the middle - like the shape below. You may want to discuss your ideas with someone at home before finalising the position of the cards.
