Year 5 Home Learning- W.B 18.5.2020

Hi Year 5 – another week and hard to believe that this would be the last week before half term!

This week, in addition to the usual Maths and English, there is some ScienceTopic, Art and French. We hope you enjoy the activities this week and remember to show us what you’ve been up to on Seesaw! We really do love receiving your messages and videos.

Don’t forget you can also take part in the PE challenges on the North Yorkshire Sport Virtual Challenge page of our website, which you can find here: This week is the last chance to enter the Jump Challenge!

A message to Parents/Carers: Whilst there are a range of activities available here for your child, please note that there is no expectation for them all to be completed. We encourage the children to do as much as they can, but we also recognise the challenges that come with home learning and appreciate that children are following their own interests during this time, which is also great to see!



The spelling activities below review several suffixes covered in Year 5: -ify, -ate, -ise, -en. This might be useful if you are wanting a general spelling activity to complete, though please keep in mind it will go beyond this week’s spellings. You can alternatively skip through the document to the ‘-ise’ section for some guidance on that rule.


Topic (Geography)

Geography work this week is looking at the difference between biomes and climate zones. Could you explain it now? Have a look at the powerpoint and then complete the tasks to get a better understanding of the similarities and differences between the two things. Then really think about Brazil and South America and their specific biome and climate zone.


This week’s art is based around a South American artist called Beatriz Milhazes. Have a go at the task and if you want to find out more about her, please do.

French (Clothes)

This lesson follows on from the lesson 2 weeks ago where you learnt the different vocabulary for French items of clothing. This week we’ll build on that knowledge and start writing sentences to describe what someone is wearing.
