Complete the activities and the quiz on the website.

Now solve these problems for multiplying by 10:

Now solve these problems to show what happens when you multiply by 10, 100 or 1000:

  1. 12 x 100 =
  2. 12 x 1000 =
  3. 157 x 10 =
  4. 157 x 100 =
  5. 1405 x 10 =
  6. 1405 x 100 =
  7. 1405 x 1000 =
  8. 4.5 x 10 =
  9. 4.5 x 100 =
  10. 4.5 x 1000 =

2. English:

Read the advice below about Performance Reading Techniques:

First, practise reading the opening of the story, The Promise (see below) using some of these techniques. Practise it a few times so that you are confident.

Now share your reading performance with someone else and ask them to say what they thought was good about it and one thing that could be different (two stars and a wish!)

If you have permission from parents/carers, please record your reading and share it with us – we’d love to see it! Send it to Y5homelearning@bishoplonsdale.derby.sch.uk or share to the school’s Twitter feed.

3. Geography:

You might have heard the word ‘economy’ used a lot in the news. Find out what is meant by economic activity on BBC Bitesize – click on the link: https://www.bbc.co.uk/bitesize/topics/zx72pv4/articles/z7jdnrd

When you have read the information, do the test at the end of the website. Then write a glossary to explain what these words mean, using the information on the website:

  • economy
  • economic activity
  • supply
  • demand
  • boom
  • slump

Times tables

First let’s get active and practise our 9 times tables using BBC Super Movers!

Multiplying by multiples of 10

If you know your times tables, you can use these facts to solve problems with bigger numbers. For example...

If we know that 8 x 2 = 16, then we can use this to solve problems with multiples of 10:

  • 8 x 2 = 16
  • 80 x 2 = 160
  • 8 x 20 = 160
  • 80 x 20 = 1600

What pattern do you notice?

(Count how many zeroes are on either side of the calculation to help you!)

Use this idea to help you solve these problems:

2. English:

Listen to Nicola Davies read The Promiseclick on the link: https://vimeo.com/73026206

What did you notice about the story and how she read it? Was it as you expected?

Now answer these questions about the story in full sentences:

  1. How did the story make you feel? Can you explain why?
  2. What does the story make you think about?
  3. What has happened to you that is most like this story?
  4. How is the main character changed in the story?
  5. What changes does the main character cause?
  6. In what ways is this story realistic?
  7. In what ways is this story imaginary?
  8. What lessons could someone learn from this story? Can you think of 3 different ideas?

3. P.E.

This week the English Football League have launched 'The Joy of Moving Home School Festival'! There is a downloadable booklet in the PE section of the school website which has a whole day's worth of fun activities - but here is one particular activity I would like you to do: THE CAP RACE!

Now imagine a city that is the exact opposite of the one described in this story.

What would it be like in the city?

  1. Draw an illustration of this ‘opposite’ city.
  2. Write your own memorable phrases around your illustration to describe the place.
  3. Use your ideas to write a detailed description (at least 2 paragraphs) of what it is like there.

Read the start of a story called The Promise by Nicola Davies, shown below.

What do you think might happen in the rest of the book? Why do you think that?

Read the six phrases that have been chosen on Memorable Phrases list on the left, below:

Now match each memorable phrase to one of the list of reasons on the right – the reasons are mixed up so you will need to think which reason makes the most sense with which phrase.

Now read the next part of The Promise:

Choose 3-5 memorable phrases from here, copy them out and write your own reasons to explain why you think they are memorable or effective phrases.
