Today’s Time Table

*Commonwealth Project Week – Year 5*


This week some of your lessons are going to be a bit different, they will have the focus of the Commonwealth. This is an association of 54 countries from around the world whose members work together to promote prosperity, peace and democracy along with protecting the environment in which all its members live. Some of you will be aware of the Commonwealth Games too – this is where athletes from the 54 countries come together to compete and celebrate sporting success with the next Commonwealth Games being held in Birmingham next year.


Commonwealth Day is celebrated on Monday 8th March this year and the Mayor’s Office have asked us to be a part of these celebrations. To do this we have been asked to create a video sharing all the things we have found out about and know about the Commonwealth.


Your Geography lesson today should start you off, however if you think of any other creative ways in which you want to share your knowledge or what the Commonwealth stands for then please be as creative as you want. If you record anything please email it to me at: then I can add it to the video to send to the Mayor.









1:15 – 2:35




Watch Newsround


Times Tables Practice






















Miss Wall Reads


08:40 – 9:00

Watch Newsround for the day’s news and happenings in the world.

Follow the link below for the up-to-date news from around the world. If you wish to discuss anything you see on Newsround please remember it for our first live lesson of the day.


Once you have watch Newsround it’s time to practice your times tables. You may want to go to the Hit the Button website or head over to Times Tables Rock stars

Let me know your high score and remember to challenge yourself with the level you choose.

If you need your login for this please send me a message and I can let you know what it is.




Recognising Decimal Equivalents

Google Classroom at 9:10 for the first 15 minutes (Click the Meet Link). Please attend.


In this lesson you will need to use your place value, fractions and decimal knowledge. We are going to read and write decimal fractions and relate the tenths, hundredths and thousandths accurately.


 one whole one, two tenths, three hundredths and seven thousandths as a decimal would be = 1.237 and as a fraction it would be 1 237/1000

The information that is given on the worksheets will be shown in different ways, remember what you know, (the information they have given you) then use that information to work out the answer.

Example: Type of image used on worksheets to help you answer the questions.



Your worksheets show questions using, ‘Base 10’ images, you are familiar with this equipment as you have used it in school.

Example of ‘Base 10’ question:

A decimal is represented in, 'Base 10' form, can you write this as a decimal number?



The image above shows 1 whole so that is 1 this would be in the ones column on your place value chart. The decimal point would come after the number 1. There are no tenths in this image so in the tenths column, which is the first column after the decimal point we would write 0. There are 5, 1 hundredth sticks so that is the same as 5 hundredths, we would put the number 5 in the hundredths column after the zero in the row. Finally, there is 6 thousandth cubes which is the same as 6 thousandths, we would write 6 in the thousandths column after the 5 in the row. 

The answer is 1.056

               Ones      .          Tenths          Hundredths          Thousandths

                   1         .               0                         5                              6

If you are unsure when you are answering your questions please look back at this example, also look at the value of each of the base 10 pieces to help you out.

You have worked recently with fractions, decimals and place value so as you work through the worksheets, (attached below) you will use the knowledge you already have to answer the questions.


We will discuss this in more detail during our live lesson today, if you are unable to print off the worksheets, write your answers in your books.

Once you have completed the worksheets, log on to BBC Bitesize, click on lessons – Math – Number and Place Value – Thousandths as Decimals - click on the link below.


Work your way through the questions in each of the activities, the sheet for Activity One is also attached below.

Quiet Reading Time – Bug Club

Find a comfortable spot for your reading or you may want to find an unusual place for a change. Ask your adult to send me a picture of you reading in your spot or tell me where it is on Class Dojo.

Make sure you have your reading record signed by an adult at home to show that you have kept up your reading and send over a picture on Class Dojo, this will earn you more dojos.


10:50 – 11:50

English – New Book

Book Covers

Google Classroom at 10:50am for the first 15 minutes. (Click on the Meet Link). Please attend.


During today’s lesson you will need to use your detective skills. I am going to show you several book cover designs of our new text ‘Kensuke’s Kingdom’. When you look at each book front take a really close look and see what you can spot. Once you have had a close look write down what you think the book is about in your blue books, make sure you give me detail though.


If I was looking at a book front and I could see a magnifying glass on the front, I would write something along these lines:


On the book cover I can see a magnifying glass, I think this tells me the main character in the book uses this to find clues about the events in the book. When I think of magnifying glasses it makes me think it is a mystery so the text could be based around a mystery that the main character has to solve.


Here are the images of the 7 book covers, we will discuss a couple of these in the live session so get ready to share some of your ideas about what the book might be about.




11:50 – 12:30


Commonwealth Project


This week some of your lessons are going to have the focus of the Commonwealth – this is due to Commonwealth Day being around the corner on Monday 8th March. Some of you will remember Year 5 last year presented their projects on the Commonwealth to the Mayor at the Town Hall, unfortunately this year it is going to be slightly different. We have been asked to produce a video about the Commonwealth and what we understand about it.


This is where our Geographical knowledge comes in – do you know all the countries that are part of the Commonwealth? Why they are part of the Commonwealth? Who is head of the Commonwealth? Etc. Now is time to find out and present your findings.


There are a few ways you can do this:

1. Create a bright, colourful poster focusing on the Commonwealth and what it is

2. Create a poster with a focus on one Commonwealth country and its role in the Commonwealth

3. You might want to do some research on the head of the Commonwealth and what they do as part of this.

4. Write a piece that you can film and email to me about the Commonwealth and what you know about it after your research (choose your favourite facts)


Once you have created your chosen piece – take some time to either send some photos of it and you over on Class Dojo or film you with some facts and/or your poster about the Commonwealth and email it to me at


1:15 – 2:35


For this week’s PE session I would like you to warm up using either:

Cosmic Kids Yoga:


Joe Wicks 8 Minute Workout:


Once you are feeling nice a warmed up, make sure you’ve properly stretched – here comes your challenge – again linked to the Commonwealth. Can you spell out each letter of Commonwealth using your body. Ask an adult to take a photo of you each time you create a letter and send them to me on Class Dojo – again this can be used as part of our presentation for the Mayor.


When you have formed each letter and are happy with the photos, there’s one more challenge for you to complete below called ‘Trick Shot’.



2:35 – 2:45
Miss Wall Reads

I will begin by reading the blurb of our new book ‘Kensuke’s Kingdom’, we will be able to find out a little bit more about what the book is about and then we will read Chapter 1 to get us started.
