Hi Year 5!
We hope you are all well and safe.
Here is your weekly update, Home Learning Guidance and materials for the week beginning 8.6.2020.
First of all, some of you will already be aware that we have begun inviting you to access Google Classroom through the school website. You simply need your login details for the school site and then a code which you can be provided with by your class teacher. The icon is shown above. You must access it using your own school email.
This will enable you to access our shared Class Drive where we have backed up all of your Home Learning Guidance from previous weeks for easier access. Whilst we will continue to post the guidance here on the web, we will begin uploading it into the shared drive as well. This will hopefully mean you can go back and check out any resources you may not have managed to have a go at yet and makes life a little easier for finding older resources all in one place, rather than searching through old web posts. We hope you will find this useful. Do feedback any technical issues and we will try to resolve them for you asap! (Probably with the assistance of Mrs Jewitt – although sshh, I haven’t asked her yet 😉 .)
Nature Watch Project
This week, our project takes a turn towards Nature and the outdoors! Check it out here.
Your tasks are to:
- Conduct a mini-beast hunt.
- Create your own wormery.
- Label the parts of a flower.
- What is Pollination?
- Grow your own sunflower and record observations.
- Art: choose a flower or plant from your own garden and draw it…
We’d love to see some of your end products – take some pics and share them with us!
We have provided the usual resources in the Home Learning files including:
- Overview (timetable ideas and useful links)
- Monday – Friday files (resources specific to that day as per the overview)
- Maths (starters and daily tasks)
- English (useful prompts, word of the week and grammar activities)
- Spelling and Grammar (part of daily tasks or English file)
- Reading (part of daily tasks)
- Classroom Secrets Home Learning Packs (fully differentiated)
- EAL (useful resources for those receiving support from EMTRAS)
- Something a bit different – (exactly that!)
However this week, we have also included a ‘Science‘ folder in the ‘Something a bit different’ file. In it, you will find the first two lessons of our topic ‘Forces’ which we would have been studying in school. They have been slightly adapted to accommodate the fact you are at home and may not have access to certain resources. We will follow this up with another two lessons next week.
There’s also a fun Paper Helicopter Investigation to explore…
White Rose Maths
Please note, that this week’s usual schedule for White Rose Maths has already been covered by us earlier on in the lockdown. When they partnered with BBC Bitesize, their timetable changed slightly. To accommodate this, they have provided alternative lessons for the weeks where this might occur. This is something we are doing this week and an ‘alternative’ lesson pdf containing video links has been put in the files for you as well as the resources. If you do go on to White Rose‘s website, do please ensure you are viewing the ‘alternative’ provision which is provided in a link alongside the standard weekly lessons.
You can also continue to access Oak National Academy, BBC Bitesize Daily Learning and Classroom Secrets should you wish to mix up your daily programme of learning.
Don’t forget: you continue to have access to Purple Mash, Education City, Lexia Core 5, Mathletics, Times Table Rockstars, Epic! Books and Discovery Espresso.
If you need any login reminders, just email your class teacher at the following addresses:
You can also ask to be added to our Class Dojo by emailing us at the above addresses where we can answer any support questions (privately or as class info).
Our next Google Meet Video Conference is currently set to be Thursday 11th June at 4:30pm. We will provide further information about this closer to the time, however if you would like to join in, just let your class teacher know via email or Class Dojo. The technical hitches are fixed! Links cannot be given out too soon in case they change for safeguarding purposes. However if you log in to Google Classroom using your class code (available from your teacher), you can then be sent the specific code / link to gain access to the ‘Meeting Room’.
This week, we will be hosting a quiz! Bring your question and see who you can confuse!
We hope you continue to stay safe and well. We are here if you need us.
Take care all,
Miss Sanderson and Mrs Tuff 🙂 🙂
