Hello Year 5

Thank you to everyone who completed their letters to their buddy. If you are unsure who your buddy is please email me on Purple Mash and I will tell you. Your work for this week is outlined below- with an added V.E. celebration on the bottom as Friday is a bank holiday.


I have had emails off many of you and I am so proud that you are starting to understand fractions. This week I have set you some work on MyMaths related to decimals. Try to think of them without the decimals- you do exactly the same just with the decimal.

Adding decimals in columns

Ordering decimals

Rounding decimals

As well as this there are activities on White Rose

Timestable rockstars- I have set you 10 sessions on Garage to complete this week.



You have a different website to inspire your writing this week. Please look at the Literacy Shed

Watch the video and create a newspaper report to explain what happened. You will need a headline, description of what happened and an interview with either the lighthouse keeper or a member of the community.

Parenthesis and Commas (B)
