Week 2 - 30.03.20


Friday 3rd April



Well done! Following this week of decimals, today you are going to look at how we can write thousandths as a decimal. One of the tasks are going to ask you to write a series of fractions with different denominators as a decimal, remember what you have learnt this week.
For example: 4/10 = 0.4    3/100 = 0.03     2/1000 = 0.002 so if we were asked to add these fractions we would get 0.4 + 0.03 + 0.002, which would equal 0.432. 

Today's task


Remember to follow the video (week 1 lesson 5)



Today, you are going to use your plan, and the adverbs that you have included to produce your final playscript. Remember, you can use all of the resources uploaded this week to help you. 


1. Write your playscript using the given format e.g. stage directions in brackets. 

2. When you have finished, produce a drawing of the characters on stage performing the scene you have created. Think about the props that will be on stage, the setting and scenery. Consider what the characters would be wearing too. 

3. Perform your playscript with your family. If you can, upload your examples to @KensingPrimary. We can't wait to see!


** Please place yesterday's work in your folder. When you return to school we will go through your examples and mark this together. **

Thursday 2nd April



Well done on completing your playscript plan! Before you write your final playscript, it is important to understand stage directions, and how adverbs can be used most effectively to help actors know how to say their lines on stage.


Task 1. You will have to select the most appropriate stage location and match it up with the given picture.


Task 2. Complete the playscript, using adverbs to provide instructions on how each line is performed. Use the adverb word list to help you. On the sheet, we have provided an example in red to help you.


Task 3. Return to your planning sheet, and add adverbs that you could use in your script to inform actors how to perform their lines.


Tomorrow, you will use this learning, and your plan to help you write your playscript. Good luck!



Now that we have learnt about tenths and hundredths, we are going to continue our decimal learning by exploring thousandths. Remember, we need ten tenths to make a whole, ten hundredths to make a tenth so how many thousandths will make a hundredth?

Wednesday 1st April




Well done for the last 2 days of work. We are going to continue with our White Rose activities by completing lesson 3. Remember to click on week 1 once you click on the link.




Take a look at ALL attachments below. They will remind you of the features and teach you how to write a playscript. On one of the attachments, you will find the first scene of Red Riding Hood. Please read this carefully as your task is linked closely to it. 



To plan the next scene of Red Riding Hood when she meets the Wolf in the forest on her way to Grandma’s house.

Follow the same format as Scene 1
Set the scene
(directions in brackets)


Today, you are NOT writing, but planning it! You will write this on Thursday

Below, you will find a planning sheet. You may wish to plan your script using this, however you can use your own planning format if you so wish. e.g. spider diagram.

Tuesday 31st March

Good Morning Year 5, you will find the Maths and English tasks for today below. 




Yesterday, you learnt about the main features of a playscript. Before you have a go at writing a playscript of your own, we would like you to have a go practising and performing them at home! Below you will find 2 different playscripts. Read both scripts and select the one you enjoy the most. See if you can encourage your family (parents/guardians/siblings) to help you bring the script alive!


We would really love to see some of your examples. If you are able, ask your parent/guardian to tweet your work to @KensingPrimary  

If you haven't - don't worry! 


Please click on the yellow star below to find the answers from yesterday's work!




Building on our learning from yesterday, today we are going to explore the link between fractions and decimals. Today we are going to think about the denominator 10 and 100 and how that links to 1dp and 2dp. Watch the video alongside your activities to support your learning. 

Lesson 2: Decimal as fractions (1)

Monday 30th March


Good morning year 5, hope you are all doing well and you've had a well rested weekend. Let's start the week off by shaking off the cobwebs and picking up where we left off on Friday. 

This week we are going to be having a go at the 'White Rose' challenges. To complete these tasks you are going to need to follow a couple of steps.

Step 1: Visit the White Rose website (click the link below)
Step 2: Click on the week 1 tab
Step 3: Find 'Lesson 1: Decimals up to 2dp
Step 4: Watch the video

The video will ask you to stop and try the questions. These questions arre found below. 

Tip: You may want to make your own place value chart using paper and little objects to use as counters (buttons / coins etc) 



Today, we are going to begin our learning of playscripts. Open the information document below, it will tell you all about the different features of a playscript. Take your time reading the information.


You will then find a worksheet for you to complete. On paper, write down the feature (listed on the left hand side) as a subheading, and then write an example of that feature underneath that you found in the text.
