Year 5 

Writing: Your have two writing challenges.

1) Your first writing challenge is to research bald eagles or golden eagles and create a fact file all about them. 

Click here for an easy-watching video on bald eagles

Consider: Their habitat, appearance, characteristics and why they are the national bird of the USA.

You can do this on purplemash or in your home-learning book.

2)  In your second writing project, you have now been recruited to work for the RSPB. Your job is to write a set of top tips to help someone out with bird watching.

Have a think about what they need? What birds they might be able to see from their garden? How can they help the birds?

This can be done in your home-learning book.

Spelling: In our spellings we are recapping words that we have already learnt this half term. There is a mini test on purplemash. If you would rather do them in your home-learning book choose some from the list below that you struggle with. 

Reading: Here is a picture of a book cover. In your home-learning books, can you write the blurb for it? 

                                                         

Maths: In maths, we are carrying on with angles: Reading, measuring and Calculating.

Can you remember what an: accute angle is?

                                          obstuse angle is?

                                                        Reflex angle is?

  A right angle= 90degrees    A straight line= 180degrees

We are specifically looking at angles in a triangle. Angles in a triangle always add up to 180degrees. Bearing this in mind have a go at the activities below:

Watch this video and have a go at the activity

Now have a go at drawing your own triangles. Can you draw the four different types of triangles? Once you have done these move onto the two sheets below.

Find the missing angles

 

 

 

 

Now have a go at drawing your own triangles (they don't have to be drawn to size), give yourself two angles and see if you can work out the missing one.

Remember that pattern spotting and problem-solving often go hand-in-hand.

Watch the video and have a go at the two activities

Once you've watched the video, have a go at the problems below:

Algebra activities

 

Have a go at one of the two challenges below:

Art: In Art this week, I would like you to have a go at designing your own eagle. I have attached a link below if you would like to follow a tutorial to help you draw it but you can be as creative as you like. You may wish to do the bald eagle or explore a different type of North American eagle - be as creative as you would like. 

Click here for a tutorial on drawing eagles!

 

Science: Did you know that bald eagles live to be 20-30years From fuzzy fluffball to stately bird: The life cycle of an eagle ...old? No, me neither. This is because they are such good predators. As we've done a lot on lifecycles, I would like you to explore and create the lifecycle of an eagle.
