Year 5 Home Learning Work for Tuesday 12th May


Use my One To Ten spreadsheet (below) to challenge yourself to make all the answers from one to ten using the four digits that the spreadsheet selects. Remember, you must use all four digits, but they can be in any order and you can use any operation. Don't forget to use brackets if required. I have included a photo of a completed challenge as a reminder of what to do (if you can make 10 using 2, 2, 9 and 8, let me know!).

Watch the video for today's lesson: Equivalent fractions

Complete as much of today's worksheet (below) as you can.

(Answers are at the bottom of this page.)


Practise your spellings for this week.


Look at the story writing you did last week. Use a purple pen if you have one and go through with someone at home, editing and improving.

Now, carry on with your story. You may be close to the top of the mountain (where the story builds to an exciting conclusion and any problems are resolved (eg the baddies fail in their attempt to steal the treasure and get their comeuppance). Remember, this is an important bit for the reader - don't rush it too much, but ensure it is a satisfying ending with all loose ends tied up nicely.

I shall be finishing 'Shakespeare's Wooden Leg' this week - so look out for the sort of ending I go for.



Below is a photo of our French bean and runner bean plants. They are ready to be planted outside. If you have access to veg seeds, a garden or flower pots and compost, now is a good time to plant them. Beans are great, because they grow quickly and easily and can produce a heavy crop (lots of beans!). You will need to take care of them - water daily and keep pests off (we use egg shells to prevent slugs and snails from eating the young plants).

Watch the BBC clip below to see how a seed germinates.
Now read the information about germination (below) and draw a series of labelled diagrams which show the whole process of a seed germinating.
