Welcome to another new week Year 5,
We hope you had a great week last week and enjoyed learning about plants. Hopefully you will also enjoy learning about Food and where it comes from this week.

Farm to Fork. What is this?
Below is a link to 18 different videos, there is a list down the side. From potatoes, to fish, to pineapples! Choose one of these videos as your inspiration to write about ‘Farm to Fork’. Explain how food gets from its origin, to our plates! 😊 Enjoy!
Retell your own version of one of these processes in a poster, bullet pointed list or informational piece of writing. Up to you!
In maths this week you will be continuing to consolidate your understanding of number operations using written methods for addition, subtraction, multiplication and division. You will be practising arithmetic questions. If you find any difficult have a look at the video clips at the bottom of the page to help you.
Now use your arithmetic skills to try these mastery challenges:
Don’t forget to keep practising your times tables on TTRS.
This afternoon we will be looking at food waste, what happens to it and the effect it has on the world. I hope you’ll think twice about not finishing your tea tonight! There are three videos below to tell you more…
What can we do with our waste food to make the world better?
How to protect the planet and reduce food waste:
When you have watched the videos above, try out this Food Waste quiz and see how you get on (I got 6 out of 7!)
For a last one, watch this video below. It follows the journey of a leek. Just because we like everything to look the same in the supermarket, they have to waste so much of the leek until it gets there! Solution? Buy wonky veg at the supermarket! It tastes exactly the same!
