Year 5 Homework

Please make sure you have practised your spellings and mental maths ready for our class test next Wednesday.  You do not have to print this homework at all – just copy the words into your homework book so you can practise them whenever you want to.  Practise your mental maths verbally too.  We have been so impressed with how many children scored 10/10 this week!

The spelling trophy had to be shared though because the average score across both classes was 7.7!  I wonder which class will be victorious next week?

Spellings

ambitious

cautious

fictitious

infectious

nutritious

contentious

superstitious

pretentious

anxious

obnoxious

Mental Maths

We have revised our 9 x table this week.  Make sure you can recite them in any order.  Remember to use ‘product’ and ‘factor’ from last week but this week add in ‘squared’.

e.g. 2 factors of 18 are 9 and 2.  The product of 9 and 2 is 18.  9 squared is 81.

Y5 Homework

Here is this week’s homework.  Please practise your spellings by copying them out.  It’s better to practise them for 5 minutes every day than for a longer time on one day.

spacious

vicious

gracious

malicious

precious

conscious

delicious

suspicious

atrocious

ferocious

Our mental maths this week has focussed on the 8 times table.  We have started to introduce more vocabulary to help you with this.  Can you use the word ‘product’ and ‘factor’ within your answers?

e.g. 4 x 8 = 32.  The product of 4 and 8 is 32.  Two factors of 32 are 4 and 8.

Try to answer your multiplication questions within 5 seconds!

We will test spellings next Wednesday and use the mental maths in our class assessments over the whole week.

5.7.17 (ready for Tuesday 11.7.17)

Spellings

Revise your spellings for the week and aim to use them in your discussions and writing throughout the week. Remember the suffix we are focusing on.

station             rotation                       vacation           relation            variation          operation        

allegation         excavation       humiliation      suffocation      

 

Don’t forget, we will also be testing you on the next 12 spellings from the Year 5 list we sent home. It is important you bring in your homework book so we can see the progress you have made with these spellings.

cemetery         disastrous        identity            individual         physical            sincerely

Interfere          prejudice         soldier             interrupt          privilege           stomach

Maths

Last week, we looked at roman numerals. By the end of year 5, children are expected to be able to read roman numerals up to 1000 (M). We learned that roman numerals involve adding numbers (eg V1 is 5 + 1 = 6) and subtracting numbers (X1X is 10 + 10 – 1 = 19). In next week’s math quiz, we will be writing some roman numerals on the board for you to read and write.

Reading

Reading Stamina is an area which, as a school, we have been focusing on heavily this year. For reading this week, you are to sit and read your own book for a minimum of 20 – 30 minutes without any breaks. For you to be able to enjoy your book and really get enthralled in it, you should find a quiet space where you will not be disturbed.

Enjoy!

Strategies

Focus on the ending of these words. They have similar endings to our spellings from last week.

bruise              develop                        harass              category          dictionary        hindrance

Maths

By the end of Year 5, children are expected interpret negative numbers in context, count forwards and backwards with positive and negative whole numbers, including through 0. Therefore, next week’s mental math test will involve adding and subtracting up to two 2 digit numbers mentally though 0.

Eg 14 – 17 = -3

 

Reading

Summarising the main ideas drawn from more than 1 paragraph is an essential Year 5 Skill. Using no more than 50 words, summarise the main points from the latest chapter of your book ready to read to the class next week if selected. Remember, when we summarise we are focusing on the essential information from the text.

Maths

Prime numbers are numbers which can only be divided by themselves and 1. By the end of year 5, children are expected to be able to recall prime numbers up to 19. We think you can do better. Therefore, revise your prime numbers up to 30 ready for a quick quiz next week.

Reading

Your reading challenge this week also includes applying your perspective drawing from this term. Choose a scene described in your book and try to recreate the scene using one-point perspective. Try to include the key information which is shown and described by the author.
