Week 2!

Well done for a great first week of distance learning, Year 5. It was lovely to receive pictures from some of you and to see what you've been up to! We hope you have had a lovely weekend and have managed to find different ways to entertain yourselves with your family. 

Congratulations to last week's Celebration Assembly winners:

Maths Award: Isla, our Doodle Maths champion, for the most stars collected last week.

Friendship Friday: Romilly, Orlanda and Taylor for showing kindness and helpfulness at home.

Rate My Plate: We didn't get any nominations for meals you've prepared but we loved that some of you have been communicating and creating your own 'lunch club'. Keep doing things like this and keep communicating!

Super Learning: Eryn, for her fantastic pointillism artwork.  

Remember to send in your nominations for this week's Celebration Assembly - and we'd love to see some meals you've prepared for 'Rate My Plate'!

Just like last week, we will give you suggested learning activities each day (which you will find in the Documents section on here) but you can work on anything in the folders on the SharePoint or anything you have at home. Please also make sure you find time to have some fun with your family and friends – even if it is online or on the phone! 

Remember that Joe Wicks is doing a morning workout every day at 9am – this will really help to set you up for the day. Make sure you get plenty of physical activity - make the most of the sun while it is shining and get outside!

Please upload photos to the Photos folder or send them to us - we want to see what you're up to - and feel free to share your work in the Pupils' Work folder. You can also email us if you need to and we’ll get back to you as soon as we can.

Most importantly - have fun! This is an extremely unusual, but also very unique experience which you will remember forever. Make the most of your extra time at home and as a family and look after each other!

Thursday 2nd April 

Good morning Year 5,

Have a look at the Suggested Activities for some learning ideas for today. 

Suggested Activities for today:

  • Maths - Practise using Roman numerals with the Roman numerals addition pyramids sheet, which you can copy and complete in your book. Click here if you want a recap on Roman numerals.
    Then try a problem solving challenge with Bus routes.
  • Reading - Read and answer the questions (in your book) about the story of two giants from Bristol, Goram and Ghyston. (The last question mentions embedded clauses, which are just subordinate clauses used in the middle of a sentence to add more detail - have a look here for more information).
  • Geography/English - Keep going with your island research project. Please remember to email or share them with us when you've finished.
  • Art/D&T - As you were all so good at creating the butterflies during Art Week at school, why not try making an origami corner bookmark? This website has the basic instructions, and lots of ideas for customisation!

The resources you need for these activities can be found in the Documents section, or on the SharePoint. Remember to keep up your Doodle Maths work too!

Email if you have any questions or need help with anything and I will get back to you as soon as I can.

Friday 3rd April 

Good morning Year 5,

It's the end of week 2 of home learning and the official end of the Spring term (although I'm sure you're going to carry on doing wonderful learning at home anyway!).

The answers to yesterday's Roman numerals addition pyramids are in the Documents section and on SharePoint

Have a look at the Suggested Activities for some learning ideas for today. 

Suggested Activities for today:

  • Maths - Have a go at some Number conundrums problem solving in your book. 
    Just a few hints/reminders: rows go across; columns go up/down; and Q8 is using co-ordinates which are read across and then up/down!
  • SPAG - Have a go at the Match the root to its meaning sheet - write the matches and an example word for each in your book. You can use a dictionary or look online if you get stuck!
  • Art/Science - Have a look at the Framing Nature suggestions if you'd like to take some nature photographs and/or do one of the linked activities.
  • Science - The Great Bug Hunt 2020 is a competition usually run for schools but this year is open to everyone working at home. Have a look at the website for how to enter; it's a project that you could do over the Easter holidays (and afterwards) if you wanted, as the closing date is not until 12th June.

The resources you need for these activities can be found in the Documents section, or on the SharePoint. Remember to keep up your Doodle Maths work too!

Don't forget to email or share the link for your Geography/English island research projects please!

Email if you have any questions or need help with anything and I will get back to you as soon as I can.
