01 June 2020: Home Learning

Sunday 31 May 2020

Welcome back to the final half term of this year. I hope you all enjoyed some sunshine and fresh air over the half term break. St James’ is open for some children from today, but I hope we can all be back in school together again very soon- as long as it’s safe! In the meantime, please stay in touch with me by sending me some pictures or messages to my email: nataliebeatson@spherefederation.org

Today’s learning……

Year 5 maths: volume

Your learning today is about volume. This will involve reading scales to measure volume. As usual there is a short quiz first and then the video lesson. Remember you can pause the video whenever you like, or skip it back in case you need something repeating.

Today, we are going to focus on jobs and money. For today’s task, complete the jobs worksheet – this will help you develop ideas that you can use later on in the week. Here are some questions to help you.

Although this task will significantly help you later in the week, it is not particularly a reading task! On top of this, I would like you to research and read about your dream job. Create a list of requirements you would need for this job, along with some reasons as to why you think people might want to do it as a career choice.
