St John the Baptist Roman Catholic Primary School Love One Another


Monday 11th May

Good morning Year 5 and welcome to your 6th week of home learning! Doesn’t that sound a long time! You are doing such a great job so keep up the good work. This week, as well as completing your lessons that I set on here, you need to make sure you:

* Read. What book are you reading at the minute? Have you read any poetry or non-fiction?

* Play on TTRS and participate in the battles.

* Keep in contact with me through the blog or email. This is really important and I love to see what you are doing whilst you are at home.


Here is what I would like you to complete today:

Monday morning assembly

Click on the link below and watch the assembly called ‘Hide and Seek.’

English – Spelling, Punctuation and Grammar Test

For English today you need to look in the pack that you took home on the last day of school. Find the Year 5 Spelling, Punctuation and Grammar test booklet and complete it. There are 18 questions.

LO – To identify equivalent fractions.

This week, we are recapping our learning on fractions (my favourite) and I remember you being really good at these. Today we will start by looking at equivalent fractions. Click on the link below to White Rose Maths and watch the video for LESSON 2 – EQUIVALENT FRACTIONS. We have done this before so this should be a recap. Watch the video as many times as you need to. Once you are ready, complete the worksheet that I have uploaded below. Then you can mark it and let me know your score through email or the blog.

LO – To research endangered animals.

An endangered animal is an animal that is at risk of dying out or becoming extinct. How many animals can you think of that are endangered?


Read the information on the slides below and look at the different animals that are in danger of becoming extinct. Perhaps you know some other animals that are at risk of extinction that aren’t mentioned on the slides.

Below, I have listed 8 animals that are endangered. I would like you to choose 4 of them (or perhaps any endangered animals that you can find) and research them. I want you to find out: their native habitat; why they are endangered; how we are trying to save them; and any other information. I have attached a template that you can use below if you are able to print. If not, you can type straight into the boxes.

Endangered animals

  • Tigers
  • Parrots
  • Macaws
  • Gorillas
  • Sumatran rhinoceros
  • Amur leopard
  • Ring-tailed lemur
  • Orang-utan

Please comment on the blog and tell me which 4 animals you have chosen to research.

Have a great day, enjoy your lessons and don’t forget to read and go on TTRS. I am looking forward to hearing from you. Miss you all lots.
