August: A Brave Wonder

T4W Biography

In English we have been learning how to write biographies in Y5. To help us we have used talk for writing. By being able to speak a biography with actions to help us we will be able to write one of our own too.

Year 5 – What is your favourite action? Which grown-up did you show it to for your homework?

Home Learning Challenge Summer 2


Pupils, Parents and Carers,

Our Year 5 topic for this half term is: Change

In class we are going to be exploring these questions:

Why do things change?

What would happen if we never grew up?

How do plants reproduce?

Do all animals grow in the same way?

Pupils’ Home Learning Challenge!

Here are some ideas for this half term’s learning challenge! These are to be completed over this term and should be brought to school before Tuesday 12th July.

Remember you can complete as many challenges as you wish:

We look forward to seeing your research!! Which one do you think you are going to do?

Task 1 Research: How do plants grow? Think of an interesting way to present your research. Can you make a poster or power point presentation?
Task 2 Bake: What food represents you and your interests? Bake something that shows you and how extraordinary you are. I am imagining X-box biscuits, Shopkin cupcakes or football rolls…
Task 3 Write a postcard to our class which has your favourite positive quote on it. I like ‘when given the choice between being right and being kind – choose kind’ from the book Wonder.
Task 4 Invent and draw: your own animal and draw a life cycle for it. Decide which type of animal it is. When does it become an adult?
