For a clue, follow the clue link. Can you also find a) a type of fruit; b) a word that means map/plan; c) an organ in the body?

Year 5 Maths Week 2 day 5 - Arithmetic mini-test

A useful tip is to write the letters out in various different formations; this helps you see different letter strings and is almost guaranteed to help you find more words.  Try writing them in a circle, then re-arrange them a few times.   For a clue to the 9-letter word, click on the link to the PDF below.












POSSIBLE STORY STARTER FOR YOUR "Tuesday" STORY. I have written a few paragraphs to get you going - feel free to edit and improve my version and continue or start from scratch.


Hi everyone, there are some mistakes in the year 5 day 2 maths activity: at the end of the practice sheet (hot) the answers to the challenge questions should be: a) 2.45 and b) 3.49. Also At the end of the "Check your understanding" questions there is a section starting "Sam wrote... the answers should say that 2.49 is closer to and therefore rounds to 2 not 3.

Sorry about this and thank you to Freya and Grace for spotting the mistakes!

Read this exciting extract (perhaps a couple of times through) then use you imagination to answer the 'unanswered questions'.  There is no right or wrong!  

You can either print the storyboard or draw it out in your exercise book or on separate paper.


French - Learn some of the differerent French speaking countries around the world.

If you can't open the Word doc, here is a PDF of the same map.

Lesson objective: To learn some francophone countries and revise colours.

There are over 50 'francophone' countries (countries where French is spoken) in the world! 

1) Use an atlas or the internet to find the francophone countries named on the attached map.  If you can print the map you can shade them in. (Luxembourg and Monaco are both really small so might be hard to colour!)  

2) Look up the flags and colour them the correct colours. Either draw them in your exercise book and label or colour them on the printed sheet.

Extension: label with the correct colours in French:

Bleu, rouge, blanc, vert, jaune, noir, orange...
