St John the Baptist Roman Catholic Primary School Love One Another


Monday 22nd February

Good morning Year 5! Hope you are all well and had a lovely holiday. You all worked SO hard last half term and made me unbelievably proud. Let’s continue to work as hard this half term whilst keeping our fingers crossed that we will all be back in the classroom together soon. We will continue to meet every morning on TEAMS at 9:10 so please make sure you log on. I love seeing you all!


Here are your lessons for today. Please put in your best effort and make sure you send me your work on the blog or by email.

LO – To infer a character’s thoughts, feelings and motives.

This week we are going to restart our Myths topic (that we begun on the day before school closed) and we will be looking at Pandora’s Box. You should remember the story but to remind yourself, please watch the video clip below.

Myth of Pandora's Box

Now I want you to specifically think about Pandora. Why has she been given a box that she can’t open? How would she feel about this? What advice would you give her if she was tempted to open it?


Read the information on the slides below. Athena (the goddess of wisdom) is well known for giving advice. You are going to write to Athena, as Pandora, to get some advice about opening the box. When you have written as Pandora asking for advice, you are then going to write as Athena to give your answer. There is an example on the slides for you to read and use.

LO – To calculate the perimeter of rectilinear shapes.

This week we are going to focus on finding the perimeter. The perimeter is the distance all the way around the outside of a 2D shape. To work out the perimeter, you add up the lengths of all the sides. In today’s lesson you will calculate the perimeter of a rectilinear shape. This is a shape that has straight sides and right angles. You might have to use your reasoning skills to work out the lengths of missing sides!


Please watch the video which will guide you through your learning and then complete the worksheet. Mark your work when you have finished.

Perimeter of rectilinear shapes

Optional task – This worksheet is optional if you found the work easy or would like to continue working. I know a lot of you can have a go at this!

LO – To understand why plants have flowers.

Today we start our new Science topic – living things and their habitat. In today’s lesson, you will learn about the different parts of a flower. You will also learn about the stages of a life cycle of a flowering plant as well as some different methods for pollination and seed dispersal.


Please click on the link below to access your lesson. Make sure you pause the video and complete all the tasks that your teacher, Miss Hummel tells you to.


One activity is to match the names to the part of the flower. It says you can do this with your finger or by drawing out the flower. It would be better if you copied the flower into your book. I’m looking forward to your neat flower diagrams.
