Lesson 1: Reading comprehension – I was a rat! By Philip Pullman
This week in reading, we would like you to use Oak online academy for your lessons. Follow this link https://classroom.thenational.academy/units/i-was-a-rat-by-phillip-pullman-40cb and complete lesson 1 and 2 on the Philip Pullman book I was a rat! Lesson 1 focuses on inference and retrieval questions. Watch the video and stop when you need to complete a task. Lesson 2 focuses on a section of the text to answer a range of questions. 

Lesson 2: Short burst poem
This week, as we start our new topic, we will emerge ourselves in all things Victorian. For lesson 1 today, first watch the two videos. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=v-5Ts_i164c  https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ZPGR3D6WXUI As you watch, think about these questions: Where do you think this is? When do you think this is? What is happening? Have a look at the picture on the input. Mind map different things that you can see (nouns). Now using the word map to help create a table using your nouns but adding suitable adjectives and verbs. We will then use these to write a poem. Use your nouns, adjectives and verbs to create a poem. Try and write two or three lines about each of your nouns.
Lesson 3: Setting description
Using your poem from yesterday, we will be creating a setting description. Work through the slides as they develop different sentence structures that you could use. Imagine 3 sentence, prepositional phrases, 2 pair sentence, simile sentence, and double –ly sentence. Use your sentence ideas to write a setting description of the picture. Remember that you are trying to create an image in the reader’s mind. 

Lesson 4 – Reading comprehension – I was a rat! By Philip Pullman
We would like you to continue learning about the book I was a rat. Today complete lessons 3 and 4. Lesson 3 focuses on the characters and you will learn how to analyse them. Lesson 4 is developing your knowledge and analysis of a section of the book. Watch the videos https://classroom.thenational.academy/units/i-was-a-rat-by-phillip-pullman-40cb and stop and complete the tasks as they direct you to. 
 

2.    Maths – Factors, Multiples, Primes and Arithmetic
Watch the video for each lesson and then have a go at the lesson work sheet which you can download.

Lesson 1: This lesson focuses on multiples of numbers. Multiples are the numbers which appear in that times table. For example the multiples of 2 are 2, 4, 6, 8, 10 etc. Watch the input and then have a go at the worksheet. If you are still unsure, watch this extra input. https://www.bbc.co.uk/bitesize/clips/zvyb9j6

Worksheet: https://resources.whiterosemaths.com/wp-content/uploads/2019/10/Y5-Autumn-Block-4-WO1-Multiples-2019.pdf 

Lesson 2: Factors
Today you will be exploring factors of a number. Factors are the numbers you multiply together to get a certain number. For example, the factors of 20 are 1 and 20, 2 and 10, 4 and 5. Watch the video and then have a go at the worksheet. If you need any extra input, watch this video. https://www.bbc.co.uk/bitesize/topics/zfq7hyc/articles/zp6wfcw 
Video:  https://vimeo.com/468941522 
Worksheet: https://resources.whiterosemaths.com/wp-content/uploads/2019/10/Y5-Autumn-Block-4-WO2-Factors-2019.pdf 

Lesson 3: Prime numbers
We will continue exploring different numbers today and in particular prime numbers. Prime numbers are numbers which only have 2 factors: 1 and themselves. So, for example, the number 5 is a prime number as its only factors are 1 and 5. Watch the input and then have a go at the questions. If you are stuck, watch this video for an extra input. https://www.bbc.co.uk/bitesize/topics/zfq7hyc/articles/z2q26fr

Lesson 4: Place value review
We will be having a recap lesson and check on our understanding of place value and in particular the value of each digit. Work through the sheet thinking about what digit represents and what it’s worth is. If you need an extra bit of input, have a look at this video or you can draw yourself out a place value grid to help you. https://www.bbc.co.uk/bitesize/clips/zfvr87h  
 

3.    Spellings

This week we will be looking at words which end in –ence
Words:  Innocence, confidence, obedience, independence, patience, excellence, affluence, evidence, convenience and presence

Lesson 1:  Look up each word in a dictionary. Write out its definition and use it in a sentence. If you need an online dictionary, use this website https://dictionary.cambridge.org/ 
Lesson 2:  
Use the method of look, cover, write, check to practise your spellings. Underline any parts of the word that you are finding tricky.
Lesson 3: Yesterday, you should have underlined any parts of your spelling rules that you found tricky. Practise writing them again but this time write the tricky part in a different colour. 
Lesson 4:  Create a word search of your words. See if a family member can find all of them.
Lesson 5: Get a family member to test you on your spellings. How many did you get right? Which ones will you need to keep working at? 
 

4.    Science - Solids, liquids & gases

Today in Science, we will be looking at solids, liquids and gases. Work through the input and watch the video https://www.bbc.co.uk/bitesize/topics/zkgg87h/articles/zsgwwxs Take notes as you watch about the differences between the three. We would then like you to create a presentation on the 3 different states of matter and deliver it to the people you live with. You could do this on PowerPoint, draw diagrams or even act it out. 

5.    Topic 

This week we are launching our new topic all about the Victorians. At school, we are having a Victorian day and we want you to try (as best you can) to complete the tasks we are doing. You can do this all in one day or split it up over the week. Our day is divided into two sections: Victorian school life and looking at artefacts. 

For the Victorian school day, follow the input slides. Your different activities include handwriting, drills and reciting poetry. 

When looking at artefacts, work through the input thinking about what you think they might be and why you think that. As you do, fill in the sheet with your predictions. Finish off by looking at what the items were and watch the video. Were you surprised? Fill in the rest of the sheet with their actual uses.
