English L.O: To make inferences and predictions using a short-film.
Activity 1: Listen to Chapter 21 of 'The Stolen Sister' on the Learning --> Stories page of the website.
Activity 2: Watch the video below and follow the instructions: playing and pausing the video when instructed to do so. Think about the questions posed and answer the questions with a * next to them in your home learning books.
The story is set in a universe where humans no longer exist (or perhaps just aren’t seen). In this film, a house escapes from its suburban foundations and sets off on an epic journey. Tackling themes of friendship, travelling and death in its 10-minute duration, Home Sweet Home combines elements of road-trip, apocalyptic and friendship narratives in its story of a couple houses travelling across America.
Pause the film after 24 seconds before the light comes on in the house. Answer the following questions in your home learning book in full sentences:
*Pause at 41 seconds when Blue House is on the bridge. Answer questions 1 & 2 below, explain the justifications for your answers:
*Pause at 56 seconds when the second house (Garage) opens his eyes. Answer questions 3 & 4 below, explain the justifications for your answers:
*Pause the film at 1 min 27 seconds. What do we know about the second house? Why is he hiding behind a tree? Answer questions 5 & 6 below:
Pause after 2 min 7 seconds just after the stick has broken. How do they feel about each other? How do you think they felt under the bridge? Why is Blue House always in the lead?
Pause after 2 mins 21 seconds when Blue House sets off alone. What is Blue House thinking now? How does Garage feel? What advice would you give to Blue House?
*Pause the film after 2 mins 56 seconds. Answer questions 7 & 8 below:
*Pause the film after 3 mins 54 seconds as they look out over the frozen lake. What do you think Blue House is doing? If we were describing their travelling what synonyms could we have for walking, moving?
*Pause the film after 4 mins 17 seconds. Answer questions 9 & 10 below:
*Pause the film after 5 minutes 10 seconds when Garage is looking out at the big factory. What could this place be?
*Pause the film after 6 mins 44 seconds. How does the animator change the mood? How might the houses be feeling? What would they be saying to each other and to their pet?
*Pause the film after 7 mins 35 seconds, as it zooms out while they are by the fire. How are they feeling now? What has happened to Garage? Why does the animator zoom in on the stick that Garage is holding?
Pause the film after 8 mins 22 seconds when the kennel is whining. What has happened? How do we know?
*At the end of the film Did Blue House know where they were going all along?

When converting from a fraction to a decimal, divide the numerator by the denominator OR try to put the fraction over 100 and then divide the numerator by 100.
When converting from decimal to a fraction, multiply the decimal number by 100 and put it over 100 (you could then simplify!)
Activity 3: Open up the file below titled 'Y5 Maths Challenge' and complete either the Bronze, Silver OR Gold page. Mark your answers using the file below titled 'Y5 Maths Challenge (Answers)'.

Activity 1: Last week we explored the 'The Universal Declaration of Human Rights'. We learnt that this document outlined all 30 rights humans are entitled to. Consider the following two questions:
Human beings are all different but born equal in the respect that they are entitled to have human rights. Human rights help make the world a better place. They help people to be treated fairly and to have what they need to live a happy and fulfilled life. They also help people to be and feel safe. Human rights show that every person in the whole world is important and worthy.
In 1959, the United Nations General Assembly agreed the rights of children were very important and adopted the Declaration of the Rights of the Child. In 1989, the United Nations General Assembly adopted the Convention on the Rights of the Child. This is because childhood is a time when we need special care and help. These rights encourage everybody to do all they can to build a fairer, safer and happier world for all children where their rights are respected by everyone.
Activity 2: Watch this video to find out more:
Activity 3: Open the file titled 'UNCRC' and take a look at the 42 rights that every child is entitled to. These rights encourage everybody to do all they can to build a fairer, safer and happier world for all children where their rights are respected by everyone.
Activity 4: Now open the file titled 'UNCRC Activity'. I would like you to pick 5 rights out of these 42 rights that YOU think are the most important for children and explain your choices in full sentences.
At a time where we all find ourselves indoors for the most of the day, we should bear in mind how important daily exercise is for our health and wellbeing, particularly our mental health. If you are able to, take your device somewhere with plenty of space (even the garden on a nice sunny day) or clear some space in front of your computer and follow along with Joe Wicks for a 30 minute workout. I will definitely be doing the same!
