Thinking Thursday is here!

Daily Home Learning Blog – Thursday, 9th July ÷

Good Thursday morning Year 5. I hope you are well today. I present to you the learning activities for the day!


LO: The Tempest, by William Shakespeare

  • Watch the videos and read the summary of the play ‘The Tempest’ by William Shakespeare.
  • If you recall, we learned a bit about that play in class.
  • Complete activity 1 and 2 in your home learning book.


LO: Dividing with remainders as fractions

  • Open the document at the bottom of the blog page. Follow the instructions and then complete either the ‘Mild’ or ‘Hot’ worksheet.
  • Remember, move on to the investigation if you are confident, and complete the ‘A bit stuck’ page if you’re finding it tricky.
  • Remember, when we have a remainder, we can convert it to a fraction by using it as a remainder, with the divisor (the number you divided by) becoming the numerator.
    • Example: 19 ÷ 3 = 6r1, or 6 1/3


LO: History of the Vikings

  • Read the information and watch the videos
  • Complete activity 1 and 2
    • 1: Create a 10 question quiz to give to an adult or sibling. Be sure to know the answers!
    • 2: Design your own Viking longboat. Use the internet to research different designs and colours they might have used.


  • Complete the attached reading comprehension activity on William Shakespeare
  • Please choose the appropriate difficulty for your ability, and be sure to answer the questions in your home learning book.

That’s all for today! Take care for now.
