Good morning everyone and welcome to the final Tuesday of Year 5,


Here are the learning tasks for today.




Watch Tuesday's video which explains how to convert imperial units to metric units.


Then complete the worksheet attached above. 


Extension task: On IXL complete the Year 5 Maths section O.6 Choose the appropriate imperial unit of measure




Learn about ‘Rip the rescue dog’ by reading the true story, Rip: a Rescuer Among the Ruins (pages 1-8) from the book Jet the Rescue Dog … and Other Extraordinary Stories of Animals in Wartime by David Long.


The text is attached above. 


Imagine you have been asked to write an information page about Rip and his amazing feats which could feature in ‘Brilliant Brainz’ – a children’s magazine. A sample of the magazine can be found here:


Design a page about Rip which would fit perfectly into this magazine. You may wish to include features such as:
- an exciting title
- fun-fact / ‘Did you know?’ boxes
- subtitles for your different sections
- explanation boxes for words children may be unsure of
- be creative with your layout – use different fact boxes and images to make your page exciting for the reader
- you may also want to include additional features, such as a quiz or word search.
Don’t forget to use as many facts from the story as possible by returning back to the text to find information.


Afternoon Task

On the website above, complete the Science lesson.


In this lesson, we are going to learn about metamorphic rock! We are going to learn why it is called metamorphic rock and how it is made. Then we will look at some different examples of metamorphic rock and discuss how their properties make them fit for their uses. For this lesson, you will need a pencil, a piece of paper and a ruler.


Have fun!


Mr Groom
