St John the Baptist Roman Catholic Primary School Love One Another


Thursday 2nd July

Good morning Year 5. Hope you’re all well. Thank you to all those who are working hard and completing all of their tasks. Quite a lot of you didn’t do your Math’s work yesterday so please catch up today. I was really impressed with your writing yesterday. Giuseppe, Dylan, Archie, Kainen and Bethany produced some AMAZING broadcasts which I loved reading. Well done to those children! Lots of activities to keep you busy today so make sure you are ready to work hard!


Here are your lessons:

LO – To answer questions on a given text.

Today I would like you to get your CGP Comprehension Book. I would like you to read ‘The Iron Man’ on page 12 and then answer the questions. I would also like you to read ‘Pompeii’ on page 14 and then answer the questions. That’s 12 questions in total. Read the extracts carefully and take your time when answering the questions.

LO – To calculate the area of compound shapes

Yesterday, you calculated the area of rectangles by multiplying the length by the width. Today, we are going to continue with calculating the area of compound shapes. A compound shape is a shape made up of two or more basic shapes. It’s a little trickier!


Watch the video below on how to find the area of compound shapes.

Now, I would like you to complete the worksheet below. When you have finished, mark it and let me know your score.

LO – To find out about Victorian Workhouses

Workhouses were where poor people who had no job or home lived. They earned their keep by doing jobs in the workhouse. Also in the workhouses were orphaned (children without parents) and abandoned children, the physically and mentally sick, the disabled, the elderly and unmarried mothers. It was a place that many people feared and didn’t want to be! Read the information on the picture slides below for more information and watch the video.

The Victorians - The Workhouse

For your task, you have a choice. I want you to research what life was like in the workhouse and create an information page or poster or a PowerPoint. Include lots of information and present them neatly.


Please make sure you send them to me.
