Friday 22nd May 2020

Good morning Year 5!

Well done to all of you who have continued to work so hard at home and thank you for keeping in touch by sending us your work and photos; it has been lovely to see these.

Today, is the last day of Term 5 and we look forward to an influx of your work along with photos so that we can update the photos in our gallery above.

Next week, during your half term break, try to keep up your daily exercise of at least 60 minutes and remember to read often.  If you have time, please check out your Mathletics - doing a little often will help to keep your numeracy skills sharp. 

NEWSFLASH

Good news for those who love maths - ten tasks set in Mathletics, to help keep your skills sharp!

Thursday 21st May 2020

Good morning year 5!

Yesterday, we hope you managed to fit some time into enjoying the sunshine and let us know if you did the cricket challenges.  If not, perhaps have a go today!

Now, get ready for some more mixed numbers in maths but this time with subtraction and reading comprehension with a great David Attenborough documentary.

How is the topic 'Light, Camera, Action' going this week?

Wednesday 20th May 2020

Good morning Year 5! According to weather reports, today is set to be a lovely sunny day, so why not enter the Virtual Cricket Skills Competition - remember the closing date is this Friday. The video clips are short and clearly explain what you need to do - you don't even have to have a cricket bat! Just a small ball and something that can act as a bat will do.  Click on the link to find out more: Cricket Fun.  Please let us know if you do enter the challenge and send us photos and/or video clips that show your cricket skills! 

Tuesday 19th May 2020

Good morning Year 5!  Thank you for all the great work you continue sending us and well done for your continued hard work during these unusual times. Keep up the great effort! Remember to say thank you to all in your family who are supporting you with your learning journey.  

Remember if you need any help just email us and we will get back to you.

Monday 18th May 2020

Good morning Year 5! We hope you had a fun weekend. Today, in literacy the focus is on learning your spellings and in maths, revisiting adding and subtraction with fractions.

The topic title 'Lights, Camera, Action' should remind you of the movies!

Dear all!

We hope you enjoy the work we have found and set for you this week in the table below! The new school topic is called Light, Camera, Action! Directors say this before they start filming movies. I wonder whether any of you would like to, one day, be a Movie Director?

Mrs Roche has set new work for you to do in FRENCH here: En ville link.

Remember to keep up with: at least 60 minutes exercise each day, so that you remain fit and healthy; regular reading and try to do your Mathletics too, as this will help keep your number skills sharp.

If you have not tried the FUN Cricket Challenge yet please have a look at this link.

For the maths lessons set, if you want extra work, go onto the BBC Bitesize Home Learning page and select Year 5/P6 then, the maths option for the day required.  These are linked to the White Rose Maths work and offer extra video clips, interactive activities and more worksheets, to further support your learning.  You will also notice other Year 5 lessons on this site, which you may wish to explore.

Always try your best and take pride in the work you produce and present.  Please keep sending in your work and photos, as we do love to see these.

We miss you all loads!
