As- Salam Alaykum Year 5!
Welcome to a new week of learning. Keep up your growth mindsets and being brave learners. Remember to use Purple Mash to ask me about anything you need support with.
A special mention this morning to Alima. She sent me her maths coordinate work. Alima has been really focused and keeps challenging herself. Well done and keep showing that amazing mindset.

Our Learning Today
Lo: to use fronted adverbials
We are going to start the week off with a grammar session. Lets watch this clip and think about the things we see Baboon doing.
Today we are going to be using fronted adverbials to describe what Baboon is doing in some of those scenes. Let's recap what fronted adverbials are.
Let's have a look at an example. Read my instructions carefully.
We have to start off by writing a sentence about what we see happening.
Baboon opened his eyes.
Now we have to describe where or when or how he opens his eyes. This will be our adverbial.
As the radio began to play, baboon opened his eyes.
Can you see that I described when he opened his eyes and I put my adverbial at the front of the sentence. This makes it a fronted adverbial.
Can you have a go at writing your own sentence with a fronted adverbial.
Here is another example:
Take a look at the picture and describe what is happening. Here is my simple example.
Baboon dragged his suitcase.
Now we need to think of an adverbial to put at the front of the sentence.
Can you describe where, when or how he drags the suitcase? Write your adverbial at the front of the sentence.
Here are three more images. Can you write a sentence about what is happening. Then write an adverbial using the verb in your sentence to describe where, when or how it happens. Be creative and challenge yourself. Always check to see your sentences make sense and up-level them if you can. Post your favourite ones to Purple Mash.
Extra challenge: write 3 fronted adverbials for each image. Try a where, when and how for each.
Lo: to reflect a shape
Let's start off with some CLIC questions:
56,346,892 + 34,583.691
63,455,200 - 29,618,246
713 x 425
6034 ÷ 26
This week our new topic will be reflection and translation. We are going to start today with reflection. So what is reflection? Look at the image below.
A reflection is a mirror image on the opposite side. An image or shape is flipped across a mirror line. What is a mirror line?
Where ever a mirror line is placed the image or shape is in exactly the same place on the opposite side over the mirror line. Just like when we look in a mirror. Every point in the shape is an equal distance.
In maths we reflect shapes over a mirror line on coordinate grids. This helps us to count the squares and make sure the shape has been reflected equally.
Have a look at my example.
I wanted to move Shape A over the mirror line into the other quadrant. To do this all the points on Shape A have to move an equal distance across the mirror line and the must be in the same place on the opposite side.
Ok lets do one together and take it slowly.
Step 1- look at the points on our shape.
Look carefully at this shape and the mirror line across the grid.
Find out how many points the shape has. This is really important to make sure the shape is the same on the other side. Our shape has 3 points. All 3 points need to move across the mirror line.
Step 2: Count how many spaces the points on our shape need to move
Look at point 1 on our shape. It is one space away from the mirror line. This means it will have to move one space to the mirror line and then one space across the mirror line to be equal. That is two spaces in total.
Look at point 2 on our shape. It is three spaces away from the mirror line. This means it will have to move three spaces to the mirror line and then three spaces across the mirror line to be equal. That is six spaces in total.
Look st point 3 on our shape. It is three spaces away from the mirror line. This means it will have to move three spaces to the mirror line and then three spaces across the mirror line to be equal. That is six spaces in total.
Step 3: reflect the shape across the mirror line
Now we can draw the shape on the other side in the new reflected position. Check that you have reflected all the points in the shape and that it is in the same place on the opposite side over the mirror line.
Let's do one more together.
First of all, the shape has 4 points. Each point needs to move an equal distance across the mirror line.
The points closest to the mirror line are two spaces from the mirror line. This means they move two spaces to the mirror line and then two spaces across the mirror line. So four spaces altogether.
The points further back are both four spaces from the mirror line. This means they move four spaces to the mirror line and then four spaces across the mirror line. So eight spaces altogether.
Today I would like you to have a look at the shapes below and I want you to work out whether they have been reflected correctly. Follow the rules and think carefully about where the shape should be. I want you to write the name of the shape in your book and decide whether you agree or disagree with the reflection. And explain why.
Here are some challenges for today.
Lo: to sketch a planet
Today we are going to do some art work. I am going to give you some images of the planets in our solar system. I would like you sketch them with as much detail in your book. You only have to do one. But you can do more if you want to. I would like you to use a pencil to shade and sketch it. But if you have colour pencils, you can use these at the end to add colour. Do not use felt tip pens.
Please email me your artwork at email@example.com
Have a great day! Theo :)
