Hello Year 5!


Here are your home learning tasks for today.


English- Look at the picture below and answer the following questions.



Have you ever seen a medieval longbow? Why do you think is it so difficult to draw (fire) the bow? What is a bowyer? Why do you think archers often chose wood from a yew tree for their bows? What might have caused the rustle in the bushes? Why is Robin alone in the woods? Can you recall the story of Robin Hood? Do you know any other characters? Can you think of any other skills (like being an archer) that require a lot of practise?


Maths- Factors

Computing- I have set you a task on Purple Mash.

Take care and stay safe.
