St John the Baptist Roman Catholic Primary School Love One Another


Thursday 7th January

Good morning Year 5. Thank you to those children who sent work yesterday. Lots of you had a brilliant first day of home learning and I saw some excellent work. Well done! I hope you are ready for another hardworking day! Lots of you have been asking about our Harry Potter reading and Ancient Greece topic as I know we talked about this on Monday and began reading. Don’t worry about this as we will carry on with these when we return back to school.


Please make sure you send your work to me on the blog or by email.

LO – To create and punctuate complex sentences using ‘ed’ openers.

Yesterday we looked at varying our sentence openers and used ‘ing’ clauses. For example:


Holding on tightly, the girls enjoyed their ride on the rollercoaster.
Swimming through the sea, the shark looked for its next meal.


Today we are going to continue our work on sentence openers but we are going to use ‘ed’ clauses. This means the word your sentence begins with is a word ending in ‘ed.’ These are a bit trickier as you need to make sure your sentence makes sense. Read through the information on the PowerPoint and have a look at the examples. Then there are 10 sentences beginning with an ‘ed’ opening clause. You need to add a main clause so that each sentence makes sense. Please write each sentence neatly in your book and make sure it is correctly punctuated.

Now I would like you to match the correct main clause to the 'ed' opening clause. Make sure they make sense!

LO – To round numbers up to 1,000,000

Today we will revisit rounding. Watch the video below – just like yesterday’s lesson – and pause it when there is a question. Then complete the worksheet and mark your work.

This task is optional if you finish your work quickly and want a challenge.

LO – To explore inspirational communities

Today we are going to look at inspirational communities. The word inspirational means that you do something good, usually to help others. We are going to look at charity work and then you are going to design your own charity.


Read the information on the slides below. Where there is a task, you need to stop and do this in your book. There are 3 tasks altogether. The sheet for the pyramid activity is uploaded below. Don’t worry if you can’t print it out to cut out and stick down, you can just write the TITLE of the charity (not the whole description) in your book. On task 3 (creating your own charity) it is up to you whether you do your poster by hand or on the computer. You may also choose to create a PowerPoint.
