Y5 –

Week 11- Shape - irregular/regular - 3D shape reasoning - reflection / translation

Lesson 1 - Regular and irregular polygons

Lesson 2 - Reasoning about 3D shapes

Lesson 3 - Reflections

Lesson 4 - Translation


There is a video explaining the task and learning. For each lesson, there are a set of questions and answers. 

See the pdf documents below You can write the answers down, or tell the answer to a grown up or sibling. When you have completed all of the questions, check the answers to see if you were correct.


There is also some maths challenges to try on 

They are linked to the White Rose resources for the week and include some really fun ideas. (The answers are at the bottom of the page - no cheating! laugh)



Week 11- Write a book review for the story - The haunting of Rose Cottage


With just a few weeks to go, this exciting story is really coming to life (or death...)

How much have you enjoyed the story? What have you enjoyed about it? What were your favourite or least favourite parts?


Your task is to write a review of the story for other people to read and recommed its good parts.

You will need to include:-

  • the book title
  • author's name
  • what the story is about (without giving away spoilers)
  • what you thought about the story (think about the vocabulary the author used, the atmosphere and mood they created)

Remember to sound positive and excited about it using your best persuasive techniques (remember the film review from last week?) 


 Chapter 3 - The sleepover

Task 1 - Read chapter 3 - "The Sleepover" from The Haunting of Rose Cottage and complete the on-line multiple choice questions.


The PDFs of the chapter and quiz are below.

Task 2 - Complete sequencing and SPAG tasks (pdfs)


Task 3 - Open ended questions (pdf)


Task 4 - In the  Rose Cottage story, the children told each other scary stories at the sleepover.  HAve you ever done that? What good stories can you remember that frightened you at a sleepover.  Write a short ghost story of your own that will frighten your friends.

using Purple mash or the downloadable PDF frame below.


You could use some of the images below as an inspiration!


Week 3- ough spelling rule  - ough is one of the trickiest spellings in English – it can be used to spell a number of different sounds.  e.g. thought (ort)   rough (uff)    cough (off) though (oh)













Week 3: Erosion and Deposition in Rivers

Why don’t rivers travel in straight lines? 


This week we would like you to look carefully at the river system where it changes shape.  Rivers can erode land by the water washing away soil and rocks as well as dropping the soil and rocks in slower river places.

These processes are called erosion and deposition.


Another way rivers change shape is through erosion and deposition – do you know what these words mean?

You can also look for special vocabulary words like meanders, waterfalls and oxbow lakes.

Take a look at the presentation on UK rivers (Same document as a PDF and Power point - you choose which one to view)

Your task is to work out where the area of land in which the river erodes and deposits, and add the information to the map. Only do one of the sheets and choose which difficulty (shown by the 1, 2 or 3 stars - 3 being the hardest)

P.E. / Sports at Home

Week 3-LINKS weekly activity 


Have a go at this week's exciting activities...

  • Marathon / Motivation Monday 
  • Twirling/ Timeout Tuesday 
  • Wheelie / Workout Wednesday
  • Team game / Thinking Thursday
  • Fitness / Fun time Friday


There's plenty to choose from.  Can you make it a bit of a competition with some of your family?


This week I'd like you have a go at 2 experiments involving how light travels through different transparent materials - an effect called REFRACTION.

In these experiment you will need to follow some science investigation methods.

  • make a prediction first,
  • then describe your  observations
  • and make a conclusion using the activity sheet. 


Look through the Powerpoint information (identical PDF available if you can't use ppt) and find out about refraction.  The video you are asked to watch is posted below as a link too.


Amazing Arrow: The first investigation  draw a horizontal arrow on a small piece of paper, and hold it behind a glass of water. Make a prediction what will happen before carrying out the investigation and write down what you saw (observation) and what you think happened (conclusion)


Incredible Images: For the second investigation, draw a small picture (or stick a small sticker) on a piece of paper. Put a glass on top of the picture, then look at the picture through the side of the glass while slowly pouring water in. Once it is full, place a saucer on top. 


Join Rebecca as she explains refraction, the bending of light when it travels from one transparent material to another.
