Year 5 Pack 2
Follow the learning activity sequence for reading, writing and maths and choose a challenge a day from the wider curriculum. Tick them off as you go! It
is okay to revisit or repeat things if it helps you to practise core skills.
Reading 1You as a reader
People talk about 'reading' and 'readers' a lot, especially in school. They're big and important words, sure, but it can be hard to work out exactly where you stand. Am I a 'reader'? Do I read enough? What kind of reader am I?!
To help make sense of it all, create a poster which answers the questions on this mind map and builds a picture of you as a reader. There are also some resources below this grid that you might like to use to help you.
ERAH – Everyone Reading At Home With your reading book, spend a good 15 minutes sitting somewhere comfy and quiet away from distractions -and read -and enjoy your book. Why not record this in your reading diary, writing a short passage on what happened in the part you have just read?
Create your own dictionary challenge! Using the book that you are currently reading, write down at least 6 words that you do not understand and look up their meanings in a dictionary. Be sure to note down the meaning in the context of the sentence (so if there is more than one meaning, you need to choose the one that makes sense as part of the sentence that it came from). There is a table below this grid to help you.

We are applying our understanding of times tables to help us learn about factors and prime numbers! Follow the links and complete the interactive learning activities all about factors and prime numbers:
Can you list the factors of: 30, 12, 9, 16, 33, 18, 14, 40?
Do any of these numbers shared factors in common?
For example: 15= 1 x 15 and 3 x 5 25 = 1 x 25 and 5 x 5
So 15 and 25 have the common factors 1 and 5.

Find out about Hokusai
Katsushika Hokusai, known simply as Hokusai, was a Japanese artist, ukiyo-e painter and printmaker of the Edo period. Born in Edo, Hokusai is best known as author of the woodblock print series
‘Thirty-six Views of Mount Fuji’ which includes the internationally iconic print, The Great Wave off Kanagawa.
You could use objects from your house –
such as a halved potato or a kitchen sponge – to do some printing of your own, in the style of Hokusai. Or, if you prefer to draw, you might like to follow this video tutorial.
Tabata is an early form of high-intensity interval training (HIIT), started in the 1990s by Japanese professor Izumi Tabata, who used it to get speed skaters in shape for the Olympics. It involves short, four-minute bouts of explosive interval moves done for 20 seconds each for eight rounds, with a 10-second break between each round. Olson found the routine to be an extremely effective way to boost metabolism fast. Try this Tabata workout for kids to get your hearts pumping!
