Home Learning Area Tasks for the week of: 04/05/2020


Class Connectivity

To keep our class connected and to see what we all have been doing during these unprecedented times, I would like you to send me either a picture or small video of something you have been up to. This could include a walk, exercise routines, painting, etc - anything you have been up to and want to share. I will then put all of these moments into a video montage to share with you at the end of the week.  




In the top left-hand corner select 'Curriculum for Wales'. Then, from the 'Library', choose 'Using Measuring Skills'. Then select 'Length weight/ mass capacity'. I would like you to try, 'Units of capacity'. Select the 'Lesson' to help you understand before completing the 'Online Homework' task.


Important: Don't forget to select the 'Lesson' before attempting the 'Online Homework' task.


If you don't get things correct first time, keep trying the tasks until you have a better understanding or ask for help. 


Don't forget there is also a selection of Maths websites on the Year 5 class page - click here to view.




There are two books for you to read. Once you have read them carefully, complete the tasks assigned.


Book 1: The Year Of The Sheep - reading test questions

Book 2: Adam And The Dragon's Treasure - (reading in preparation for next week's task)


Topic 1: Running your theme park
