Hi Year 5!
We hope you are all well and safe.
Well, what can we say?! What a year it has been… Quite unbelievable the way it has come to a close. Obviously, with this being the last week, we won’t be setting you quite the same content as we have done. We very much appreciate that most of you have been working extremely hard over the past few weeks. Keep doing your very best year 5 and keep up with the basics at the very least – so that it isn’t such a shock to the system when you return in September!
For now, here is your final Home Learning Information for the week beginning 13.7.2020 (your LAST week in year 5!).
Don’t forget, all of our previous week’s home learning guidance is backed up on Google Classroom should you like to access it over the holiday period. You just need to log in with your school email address to access it, or click HERE.
Do feedback any technical issues and we will try to resolve them for you asap!
We have provided the usual resources in the Home Learning files, however some are more simplified:
- 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 (French themed this week!)
- EAL (useful resources for those receiving support from EMTRAS)
- Something a bit different – (exactly that!)
The afternoons focus on Art this week – a war artist and sculptor named Henry Moore. There is a different lesson each day, with an accompanying Powerpoint for lessons 1-5. Further resources are provided for lessons 1 and 3.
White Rose Maths
White Rose lessons continue to be back to normal this week, with no need for alternate provision. The standard home learning videos on their website are those which you will need to follow for lessons 1 – 4. We have provided you with the necessary materials and a PDF with links to the videos as usual.
Third Space Learning Independent Recap Activities
For those of you looking to give your children extra independent Maths recap practice, we have compiled some activity sheets from a company called ‘Third Space Learning’ who provide ‘Fluent in Five’ which you may already be familiar with. The sheets are comprised of an Arithmetic section, Practice and Challenge. Answer sheets are also provided. Click here or look in the Maths folder to see what you think. There are new sheets for each week and they are available for all year groups.
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.
We will not be supplying weekly guidance over the holiday period, however a file has been created containing further Maths and SPaG revision which can be accessed over the holidays should you wish to – this is NOT compulsory. It is there for those who would like to use it. Click here to access the Summer Revision File.
Request from Miss Humphrey for those currently in Miss Sanderson’s class:
Please could you email a ‘headshot’ photograph of your child – shoulders up over – to her email address: firstname.lastname@example.org
This will used as part of their artwork and class display in September – some of the children may recall seeing a display outside of Miss Humphrey’s room. The photographs will be printed on A4 and cut in half length-ways. The children will then paint the other half of their face using watercolours in order to create a complete self-portrait. Any queries, email Miss Humphrey at the above address.
Don’t forget, reports will be available for collection on Wednesday 15th between 1:30 and 2:30pm. See you then!
We hope you continue to stay safe and well. You’ve got this year 5!
Take good care all,
Mrs Tuff and Miss Sanderson 🙂 🙂
