For the next half term in Year 5 we will be looking at ‘Animals including humans’. Worksheets without explanation are often a lot harder to get on with, therefore for Science it is much easier for you if a task has been set and you can get on with this, using the internet to help or resources you have at home. If you have any struggles or questions, please get in touch. All activities have been tailored to be able to be completed from your house, however if this is not possible, don’t worry – just do what you can!

 

These activities are to last the next 6 weeks so please do not feel like you need to do all of these at once:

 

  • Describe the changes as humans develop to old age. Draw a table of the main changes from birth to old age and write a short explanation of what happens at each stage. 
  • Now, you should know a babies’ gestation period but what happens while the baby is still a foetus? Draw the different stages of foetal development and label what is happening at each stage. Use technology to be able to get the words correct and understand their meaning. 
  • Create a fact file explaining what a child goes through from birth to five years. Use the internet to help you. Write about the different developmental stages using clear explanations and diagrams. 
  • Draw a diagram of what you believe you will look like as a teenager, what is different to what you look like now? What do you think you will be doing? What changes has your body gone through? 
  • What happens to our bodies as we get old? Can you research and create a ‘things to expect as you age’ poster? It will need to include physical and mental changes to the body. Also, think about how we care for the elderly and explore attitudes towards older generations across the world.
  • Reflect back on your work that you’ve done over the last few weeks about human growth and see if you can create a growth quiz to test your grown-ups at home and see whether they know as much as you do! 

 

Enjoy! Please share with us any activities you are able to do!

Science  1

For the next half term in Year 5 we will be looking at ‘Living things and their habitats’. Worksheets without explanation are often a lot harder to get on with, therefore for Science it is much easier for you if a task has been set and you can get on with this, using the internet to help or resources you have at home. If you have any struggles or questions, please get in touch. All activities have been tailored to be able to be completed from your house, however if this is not possible, don’t worry – just do what you can!

 

These activities are to last the next 6 weeks so please do not feel like you need to do all of these at once:

 

  • With permission, pick a plant from your garden or surrounding areas. As carefully as you can, draw every detail of the plant onto a plain piece of white paper. Without using the internet, try and remember each part of the plant and label it – check online once you’re done to see if you missed any.
  • Research how plants pollinate – what does this mean? How does it happen? Draw a diagram and write a few sentences underneath explaining pollination.
  • Choosing one mammal, one insect, one bird, one fish and one amphibian, draw the life cycle of each and then write a short comparison – focus on what is similar and what is different about each.
  • Research a significant animal behaviourist and create a poster that showcases their life, achievements and significance.
  • Create your own wildlife documentary! Think about David Attenborough and how he creates his documentaries. Mimic what he does by finding animals in your garden or observing the birds and talk about their behaviours. Send us your videos on Twitter/Facebook so we can watch too!
  • Research ‘Metamorphosis’ – what is this? Which animals go through this process? Draw a diagram and label.

 

Enjoy! Please share with us any activities you are able to do!

Science 1

This half term in Year 5 we have been looking at ‘Changes in materials’. Below are a list of experiments and activities that you could do with your child at home to continue their learning. These do not need to be bought in or be expensive, they have been created to be used with everyday objects that can be found around the house. You do not need to do them all, a selection has been included for you to decide which ones you would like to do. If possible, take photos and upload these onto our Facebook/Twitter Page so we can see what you got up to! A good way to record and send us some evidence would be to write a recount of what happened, a set of instructions or creating a table so others can carry out the same experiment. 

 

·       Gathering a range of materials and seeing which are soluble,

·       How long does an ice cube take to melt in different conditions?,

·       Help to cook a meal – What does the food look like to begin with, what does it look like during and what does it look like after? What changed? 

·      Is it possible to mix two liquids together and then separate them again?

·      Investigating hardness – find 5 objects from the house and create a table on their strength. 

 

Enjoy! Please share with us any experiments you are able to do!
