Good Morning Everyone! The Maths set up is a little bit different this week.

They are also recommending that you find activities on BBC Bitesize. I have included links to them both below:

The 'Families' magazine have put together an online copy suggesting some great websites to access. There are a range of ideas including some for 'home-learning' and others for 'health and well-being'. You can even visit some zoos and wander on Mars! There are some suggestions for activities away from your screens too. We've been listening to David Walliams read 'Fing' and have made a bug hotel. I wonder which tasks you will have a go at.

This is no April fool! Have you heard about the goats that are taking over the seaside town on Llandudno in Wales? Check out these articles for more information:

https://www.bbc.co.uk/news/uk-wales-52103967             https://time.com/5813044/llandudno-goats/

What a fantastic news story!  We could use this to inspire us- I thought I might write a story based on it. Other options could be to do a drawing of one of the goats. Maybe you could write your own newspaper report on the events or perhaps create a fact file all about these mountain goats. 

If you'd like to email any of the work you do to our school office I might be able to get it onto our website for all to share!

Literacy Tasks for the week.

This week we would like you to work towards writing a biography.

A biography is a non-fiction piece of writing about a famous person or someone you know.

Read the biography about Mary Seacole. She was famous for her nursing skills during the Crimean War.

Look at the comprehension questions. Pick a chilli and then answer the questions in full sentences in your exercise book.

Day 2 – L/O: I can ask different questions to get information

In order to write a biography you will need to interview a real person or research a famous person. It could be a grandparent who you could ring or message questions to. It could be a parents or sibling. It could be a famous person you admire.

You will need to come up with some questions to ask them. You will need to know about

  5. Later adult experiences
  6. Interesting facts
  7. How they are/will be remembered.

Decide who you are going to write your biography about and come up with some questions to ask them based on the questions above. Remember skinny questions will only give one word answer whereas fat questions will give detailed answers. Come up with at least 10 questions.

Day 3 – L/O: I can interview/research to find answers to my questions.

Now you have come up with your questions interview or research the person you are writing about. I have attached a template for this if you need it.

Watch the film Treasure

 https://www.literacyshed.com/the-thinking-shed.html or https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=aOo7pl052Ww

Day 1 - Answer the following questions about Treasure in your exercise book. Answer in full sentences.

  1. Who do you think the woman is? Why?
  2. Where does she live?
  3. Why is she collecting things?
  4. How does she decide what to keep?
  5. What does she do with them?
  6. Why do you think the film is called Treasure?

 

Day 2 – Watch the film again.

Focus on the rubbish tip. I would like you to describe the rubbish tip using your 5 senses. What can you see, hear, smell, touch, taste? Write down your ideas in your book. Can you add a simile? – It was a smelly as a skunk. Can you add personification? – the objects in the tip seemed to be calling out to me. Once you have all your ideas write a paragraph describing the setting. You could use the 2publish app in purple mash to write your setting. Save it in your work or you could write it in your exercise book.

Day 3 – Watch the film again

Explore your house. Can you find some ordinary things in your house that could be used to make something new? Describe/draw what you have made. You can use purple mash for this or use your exercise book.

Day 4 – Watch the film again

How do you think Esther is feeling when she wakes up and explores the tip? How do you think she became homeless? Come up with some ideas. You are going to write as Esther.   Think of Esther then and Esther now.

In the past I lived in a house with windows, doors and warmth. Now I live in….

In the past I had friends and family. Now I….

Continue with 5 more In the past and now. Do this in your book or on purple mash.

Day 5 – Watch the film one final time

Yesterday we looked at Esther’s past and present. Now think about her future. One day her fortunes change. What could happen? Could it get better or worse?

Spellings week beginning 23rd March – Year 5

Each week we will post a different spelling pattern. It is important that you practice your spellings every day. We have given you a task for each day. These will need to be completed in the exercise book we put in your pack.

Spelling Pattern – ious pronounced “shus”

ambitious      cautious      fictitious      infectious        nutritious   

contentious  superstitious        pretentious         anxious      obnoxious

Day 1Sounding out Copy the words into your exercise book and dot and dash them. Dot for one letter that makes one sound, dash for a sound made with more than one letter.

Do you know what the words mean? If you have a dictionary look them up and write the definition in your book. If no dictionary look online.

Day 2 –Word Changers We can add the suffix “ly” to the end of these words. It changes the word from a verb to an adjective. Does the spelling of the word change?

ambitious – ambitiously. Add suffixes to the words – can you think of any other words ending in ious? Write them in your book.

Day 3 –Dictation Get someone to read this passage to you and write it in your book.

I was cautious as I entered the cave due to it being very dark.

Try to eat a range of foods to ensure you have a nutritious diet.

Day 4 – Go on purple mash and complete spelling quiz Spring 1 week 2

Day 5 – Get someone in your house to test you on your spellings. Email me your score.

Effective characteristics of learning.

4.11.19

In Maths this week we are learning about multiples, factors and prime numbers and solving puzzles relating to these. You'll find it much quicker to complete this work if you know your times tables facts (and the related division facts) really well. Remember that the Times Tables Rockstars competition is well underway and our two Year 5 classes are both performing well - perhaps you could spend a few minutes now working on this.

 

We are all looking at homophones in our spelling sessions (e.g. stationery, stationary, cereal, serial, father, farther, great, grate, heard, herd, steal, steel). We need to know the meanings of these words in order to ensure that we use the correct ones in our own writing.

Our high frequency words are: eight, twelve and thousand. Our statutory words are: hindrance, identity and sufficient.

Let's see who can score full marks this week and get their name added to our 'star spellers' board.

We hope everyone has a brilliant half-term break. We have all worked really hard so far this year so this week off is well deserved. Enjoy spending time with your families and if you take part in any Halloween or Bonfire night events remember what we learnt on our Safety Rangers Day and stay safe.

We look forward to seeing your projects relating to our history topic when we return in November. Have fun!

On Wednesday we went to the Fire Station where we took part in a number of workshops to inform us about how to stay safe. We learnt about fire safety, road safety, the police service and how to look after our emotional health and well-being. It was very informative and we all enjoyed it.

We've been delighted with how well everyone is doing with their weekly homework tasks. Well done for getting into the routine of bringing your homework books (along with your brass instruments) in on a Monday morning.

Our maths homework links closely to our new maths topic this week - addition and subtraction. So the extra work you are doing at home will no doubt feed into great progress in class.

We're always thrilled to see any additional tasks you have undertaken at home too. We love to celebrate your success so bring in those art projects and sporting certificates. We're also more than willing to sample your baked goods - 5SE loved India's space themed biscuits on Monday. Thank you.

Well done with our previous spelling rule - there have been some great scores in our weekly spelling tests so far.

Our new spelling rule involves the letter combination - ible. We have discussed words such as sensible, visible and incredible. How many more words are there with this spelling combination.

Our high frequency words are: why and friends. Remember....i to the end will be your friend!

Our TT Rockstars Battle of the Bands is underway. 5HH have made a fantastic start and are creeping ahead of 5SE on the leader board. Let's not allow it to stay that way 5SE. If everyone plays for 10 minutes a couple of times a week we're going to have a great contest. Good Luck to both classes.

Read and enjoy our newsletter. It tells you what we'll be doing this term!

We were very excited to start our brass lessons with Mr Brown this week. Once we have returned our signed forms to school we will be bringing our instruments home to practice. Remember, these instruments must come back into school every Monday please.
