Maths – Lesson 1 - Adding decimals within one

 White Rose Maths Hub Year 5 Home Learning

Click on the link above.

This will take you to the White Rose lessons for Summer Term 1 – these are the maths plans we follow in school, so you’ll be very used to the different methods and diagrams they use.

Watch the video slides – pause and rewind as you need to. Then, answer the questions on the activity sheets in your exercise book.

The answers are there for you to check, too.

This is what your screen should look like when you get to the website.

You can either click on the links for the activity sheets and answers, or I’ve put them below, too.

(You will need to go to the website for the video, though.)

It seems like a long time ago now, but in school, we were studying Sikhism and as part of this we visited a Sikh Gudwara. One of the aspects of Sikhism we learned about was Vaisakhi.

Follow this link and visit the BBC website - What is Vaisakhi?

Work your way through this page, watching the two video clips: 1. What is Vaisakhi and 2. What is the story of Vaisakhi?

You might want to make notes in your exercise book (a bit like you might do on a whiteboard in class.

When you are happy that you have learned some facts about Vaisakhi and how and why it is celebrated by Sikhs, go to your Purple Mash 2Dos. Here, you will find a task (What I have Learned).

Your job is to tell me all about Vaisakhi. Think about:

  • When and why did Vaisakhi begin?
  • Who celebrates Vaisakhi?
  • How is it celebrated?

Don’t forget to consider paragraphs, punctuation and of course, a range of sentence openers.

Today, we’re starting with the ‘Home Row Keys’ (middle row letters), ‘Bottom Row Keys’ and ‘Top Row Keys’. There are three activities, ending in a ‘beat the clock’ game for each row of letters.

Go to 2 Type.  Practise the ‘Home Row Keys’, the ‘Bottom Row keys’ and the ‘Top Row Keys’ activities. I will only set 2Do’s for the final games, but by practising first, you’ll get better much quicker and learn how to type properly.
