Oak Home Learning
Oak class home learning for week commencing 6th July
- Continue logging onto Times Tables Rock Stars and Prodigy.
- Click on White Rose, summer term week 11, click on either year 5 or 6 and complete the daily activities. https://whiterosemaths.com/homelearning/
The video explains the activity and the worksheets have been uploaded to the Christopher Reeves website – Oak class home learning page.
- Complete the arithmetic test that I have uploaded (yr5 – 1a: yr6 – 2a). Either print out or just write the answers in your book (the answers are also given for you to mark once completed.)
- Create your own word search for someone to do. Choose 10-20 spellings from the year 5/6 list or from your spelling book. Write them into the blank word search grid, add some additional letters – try to make it challenging. Give your word search to someone to do. If you have a brother or sister learning their spellings, you can both create your own word search and then swap to find each other’s spellings.
- Continue to read for at least 30 minutes every day.
- Complete the 2 reading comprehensions (Wimbledon and Layers of the Ocean) that I have uploaded. Either print them out or just write the answers in your book. There are 3 versions, but I would like you to complete the 2 or 3 stars version. Answers are included.
Spend 10-20 minutes, copying a paragraph from your reading book/magazine/a recipe to focus on your handwriting. Do this twice a week.
- Continue writing your Viking saga (fiction) or fact file (non-fiction) and aim to complete it by Friday.
If you haven’t started it – don’t worry, I have left all of the information below.
- If you like writing fiction, you can write a Viking/Norse Saga.
Watch the sagas on the BBC website (see Topic work) and use one to base your story on. For example, you could write your own version of Thor and the Giants, creating your own challenges that Thor has to complete. Remember to take time planning your story first, thinking about what challenges to include. Make sure your writing includes some descriptive language to describe the setting, the characters and the feelings of the characters. I would expect your story to be written in paragraphs, be written in the past tense, include different punctuation including commas and speech and be about 2 pages long.
Challenge: Think about trying to use sentences of different lengths – short, medium, long.
- Or, if you prefer non-fiction writing you can write a fact-file (non-chronological report) on the Vikings.
Carry out some research first and make notes before you start to write. You will need to include a title, an introductory paragraph and at least 5 sub-headings that you can choose. Some ideas are: Families and home life, battles and weapons, Gods and religion, food and drink, travel and trade, Viking long boats, entertainment. Your fact-file can include fact boxes and also pictures and diagrams if you want but remember they need to have a caption so that the reader understands what they are looking at. I would expect your fact-file to include rhetorical questions, be written in the past tense and include some different punctuation like: brackets, question marks, exclamation marks, dashes and commas. Your writing should be about 2 pages long.
Challenge: Think about trying to use some different sentence openers.
Remember to re-read your writing thoroughly so that you can check that it makes sense, check your spelling (you can use an online dictionary) and also check that it is punctuated correctly. Don’t forget that you can include drawings if you want to.
Who was King Alfred the Great? Read and watch the BBC website to find out more.
He is the only British monarch to be called great – why is this?
Carry out some research about King Alfred the Great and write 10 facts about him. Then write a short paragraph giving the reasons why he was given the title ‘Great’. Do you agree? Below are some links to website that will help.

Enjoy your Joe Wicks work out or go for a bike ride or a walk. Try to exercise at least twice a week. If you have tennis rackets play your very own Wimbledon match – maybe have some strawberries as well.
Luke 7:1-10 The Centurion’s Servant. Watch the animation of this Bible story.
Now answer these questions:
What was the problem in the story?
What did the centurion ask Jesus to do?
What happened to the sick servant?
Why do you think that Jesus was impressed by the centurion?
What do you think the moral/lesson of this story?
If you were to write a newspaper report about this story, what would be the headline?

Y5 GOOGLE MEET
It was great to see you again this week on the Google Meet call and it’s always lovely to hear about what you have been up to.
It was lovely to see and hear about the work that you have been doing and are proud of: mosaic designs; Fibonacci number sequences; maths games; Times Tables Rockstars – great work year 5s.
Next week, we will play our last game of bingo on our Google Meet call so come prepared to the meeting with a 5x5 grid (5 columns and 5 rows – 25 squares in total) with any numbers from 1 – 45 written in the grid. Well done to Kirby who was the winner this week!
Next week I will tell you about a secret piece of work that I want you to do for the last week!!! I will also talk about the final week’s home learning because I would like you to bring it in to school in September.
Have a good week and I look forward to hearing all about it when I see you again.
