St John the Baptist Roman Catholic Primary School Love One Another


Friday 5th June

Happy Friday Year 5! Another week done. You worked amazingly hard yesterday and I enjoyed seeing all of your animals that you created. You will need those and your plans for English today so thank you for working so hard on them. One more hardworking day and then you can have 2 days off!


Here are your lessons for today:

LO – To use factual language in an information text

What brilliant animals you created yesterday! There was a real mix and they were so interesting to look at. As well as creating your animal on Switch Zoo, you should have completed your plan for your information text including: name, what it is, appearance, habitat, diet, talents and fascinating facts. That was just your plan and today you are going to write an information text on your animal. This can be written in your book or you can word process it and add pictures and colour. Really try hard with it and make it your best. Follow the structure of the text you read on the Rhiswanozebtah earlier on in the week.

Look at the ‘Appearance’ section of the Rhiswanozebtah on the picture slides below. This shows what it looks like. You should be able to write in facts to replace the ones in blue to make it about your animal. Once you have done the appearance paragraph, move on and finish the full information text.

Please email these to me. I can’t wait to read them.  

Arithmetic Test

It’s arithmetic day! Read the question carefully and take your time. Mark it when you have finished and send me your score by email or through the blog. If you have any problems opening the documents, please let me know.

LO – To understand freedom involves responsibility

Today we start a new topic in RE focusing on Reconciliation. Christians believe that God has given to each person the free will and power to choose. Click on the link below to read the short story ‘After School.’

Now answer the following questions in your book or on the blog.


  1. What do you think happened when Daniel and Samantha got home?  Why?
  2. What would the main issues be for Daniel and Samantha?
  3. What would the main issues be for their Mum?
  4. Has anything like that happened to you?  What did you learn from the experience?
  5. What freedom does the Mother have a right to?
  6. What freedom do the children have a right to?
  7. What do you think is responsible and irresponsible behaviour and what are your reasons?
  8. What do you think Mum, Samantha and Daniel have learnt from the experience and what do you think they will do in future?

Then I want you to think of a time when you have been given freedom. We are all free to do certain things. It might be walking to the shop on your own, playing out with your friends, playing on a computer game, freedom to do your homework whenever without being told etc. Open up the situations of freedom sheet which is uploaded below and fill it in for 2 situations of freedom you have. You can print the sheet out and write in it, type straight in to the document or draw it out in your book.
