St John the Baptist Roman Catholic Primary School Love One Another


Thursday 14th May

Good morning Year 5. It’s Thursday today which means we are nearly at the end of our working week. Sadly, only 11 children participated in yesterday’s TTRS battle. This was part of your Maths lesson so 19 children missed that bit out. Well done to the 11 children who did, I hope you received your e-mailed certificates. If you didn’t, email me and let me know and I will send it again. Let’s see if everyone can make contact with me today through email or the blog. Your quizzes were brilliant yesterday; I enjoyed them! Here are your lessons for today:

LO – To create a narrative to accompany a scene.


Today is our last lesson focusing on deadly creatures which most of you have seemed to really enjoy. Read the following two extracts about snakes, making a note of any key words or phrases used:

Now watch the ‘Iguana vs Snakes’ scene taken from Planet Earth II:

Iguana vs Snakes | Planet Earth II

Imagine you are the new ‘David Attenborough’ or ‘Steve Backshall’ and have been asked to narrate this scene (this means be the voice-over for the scene).


Write the narrative you would say to accompany this scene. Try to include lots of facts about snakes using the key words and phrases you have jotted down. You may wish to read aloud your voice over to a family member and, if possible, record it to send it to me. If you’re too shy to record yourself and read them out, email them to me so I can read them. Even though snakes aren’t my favourite animal (I bet you’re not surprised) I am looking forward to reading your writing.

LO – To convert improper fractions to mixed numbers and vice versa


Carrying on from yesterday, I would like you to answer questions 1-12 on the picture slides below in your book. I have included the answers so you can mark it. Please email me your score or post it on the blog.



If you want to, see if you can solve the problem below and find out the values of the shapes. I will be really impressed if you complete this!

LO – To locate the Grand Canyon and identify key features


In Geography today, we are going to look at one of America’s wonders – The Grand Canyon. Do you know where The Grand Canyon is? What is it like? Today we will be finding out more about the Grand Canyon and describing some of its most significant features. Read the information on the slides below.

Read the information on the slides above, as well as carrying out any additional research. Then choose one of the activities below. Please let me know which one you choose and send me your work.



If you have a subscription to Disney+, there is a program on there called ‘Into the Grand Canyon’ under the National Geographic Channel.


Have a lovely day, work hard and make sure you email me or post on the blog. I’m ready and waiting to hear from you!
