Monday 29th June 2020.


Activities to complete today (if you can): 


Click on Week 10, Lesson 1 – Measuring with a protractor (Your protractor is in the maths packs you were given in September). Watch the video, do the activity, mark your answers. If you have any questions, or are struggling in some way – please get in contact with myself on Dojo and I will try my best to help you! The questions and answer sheets are on the ‘Attachments’ section of today’s work on our school class page.


(Remember – if this material to too hard for your child at this stage in their development or without the resources they would have access to in school – please do not worry about doing this. You are also welcome to try lower year group work if you feel this would be beneficial. Please contact me if you think this applies to yourself.)


p.s. Please message me to let me know when you have done your maths work – it is nice to see it, as I cannot see it like I could on Purple Mash. Thanks!


Writing Task – Explore what is in our Solar System, the famous ‘Space Race’ and the thrilling, true survival space story – Apollo 13. When following links online, parents should monitor that children are remaining on that page only and are keeping safe online.


For this week, Year 5 and Year 6‘s Home Learning Unit is the same. The reading and activities set will meet the needs of both year groups whilst still providing challenge.


Find out about the Solar System by reading these two sources – making notes as you read about each planet:

1. Planetarium Junior Edition by Raman Prinja: (You will need to become a member of LoveReading4Kids. Membership is free).

2. National Geographic Kids – The Solar System:


Now enjoy this rap on YouTube about the Solar System, ‘Outer Space: “We are the Planets,” The Solar System Song by StoryBots – Netflix Jr’ here:


Task - Based on what you have read and watched, create your own rap, song or poem about the Solar System. You may create your rap, song or poem in different ways, such as:

• Use the rap you listened to on YouTube as a starting point and edit some of the lyrics/ add to the existing lyrics to create your own version.

• Choose one part of the Solar System to create your rap/song or poem about e.g. your favourite planet.

• Choose your favourite type of poem such as a limerick, haiku or acrostic and use this to write about the Solar System.


Make sure you keep practising your rap, song or poem by reading it aloud and editing as you write. Once you have finished, have a go at performing it to someone in your house. If you like, you could also record it to send to your myself!


Remember, if you are not sure or need any help with anything on here – just contact myself on Dojo.
