Year 5 Remote Learning

Welcome to Year 5!

On this web page you will find details of the arrangements for any Home Learning to mirror our in-class learning, should any child be stuck at home because of quarantine requirements.

We heartily thank parents and carers for their support with remote learning – it really does make a difference to your child’s progress!   Mrs Poulton and Mrs Reid.

Here are some instructions of how you can login and use google classroom with your school google account (The one you use on the Chromebooks at school).

Home Learning when in Isolation

 Unfortunately, because of the current COVID situation, there may be times during the school year when children need to isolate at home (because they or a family member have symptoms) or when the school needs to send children home because of an outbreak.  At Andrews’, we recognise that by far the best place for children to be is in school. However, should the need arise, we are also committed to ensuring that there is as little disruption as possible to their learning by providing easily accessible, structured home learning. 

As with weekly homework, Google Classroom will provide the means for children to upload their learning for marking.  We recognise that learning at home is not the same as being in school, as well as other demands on parents’ time, and so, where possible, we have sought to support home learning using resources such as Oak National Academy and White Rose maths, as these offer short videos and related structured tasks to support the children’s independence.  The Home Learning tab for Year 4 on White Rose clearly shows the current week’s learning. 

Links to White Rose Maths and Oak National Academy Websites

A typical weekly timetable for home learning in isolation has been included below, although we naturally understand that in a Covid situation, this may not always be possible.  The timetable shows the relevant Oak National Academy units that cover material similar to that which we are covering in school this half term, so that home learning can commence from the first day away from school. We thank parents for their support in doing whatever seems achievable under the relevant circumstances – it really does make a difference!

Hello for the final time!                                                                  20th July 2020

Thank you all for your hard work this year, in the actual classroom and in the virtual classroom.  You should be proud of all you have achieved.  I have selected a famous quote attributed to Mahatma Ghandi for this final post: 

 

As a final challenge for the end of term I thought it would be fun to do a photo scavenger hunt!  How many of the following can you photograph in the next couple of days?

  1. Something taller than you.
  2. Something that is not obvious what it is.
  3. Something you are proud of.
  4. A plate of food you have made.
  5. A job you have done that an adult usually does for you.
  6. Something which amuses you.
  7. Something from above.
  8. Something outside from inside.
  9. Something inside from outside.
  10. Something from underneath.
  11. Something smaller than your fingernail.
  12. Something that is usually overlooked.
  13. Something you have made that didn’t go to plan to start with.
  14. A before and after photo of something you have improved.
  15. Something alive.
  16. Something that was once alive.
  17. Something vivid.
  18. Something monochrome.
  19. Something that you have done for someone else.
  20. Something that will always make you think of 2020.

Feel free to share you photographs with us.  However, if they are personal to you, then simply let us  know which numbers you have managed to complete.  Good luck!

I look forward to seeing you shine in Year 6 in September.

Mrs Poulton

Hello again,                                      6th July

It was lovely to see some of you on the virtual meet last week, but please do not worry if you were not able to join.  I thought I would look for a quote linked to the topic of motivation that you discussed – and I came across this one about time:

Hello again,                                      29th June

I hope you are all well and enjoyed the sunshine last week.  I saw a white admiral butterfly on one of my walks and it inspired me to look for some butterfly quotes.  This was one of my favourites:

Welcome to another week of home learning.  Thank you so much for sharing what you have been doing at home – it is great to see all that you have achieved!  Keep going!

Hello again,                                                                            15th June

It has been lovely to speak to you and your families again this week – it is great to hear how you are all getting on.  Well done again for all the learning you are completing at home.  I have been reading the newly released book by the author of the Malamander which is called ‘Gargantis’.  It has Herbie and Violet as the main characters and is set in Eerie on Sea in The Grand Nautilus Hotel – but it also has a boat in it.  So my quote this week links to that…….

Hello again,                                                                                                         8th June 2020

I hope you are all well and ready for a new week of learning.  I was very excited when it rained this weekend – partly because it meant that I didn’t have to water my allotment, but also because it made everything smell nice!  So my quotes this week are around that idea…

 

 

Activities for this week:

  • The paper pack that was made available in the week before half term
  • An activity grid about The Maya that released on google classroom last week. (We would have been studying this fascinating civilisation if we were in school.)   A copy is here: The Mayan Activities

Hello again,                                                                                                         1st June 2020

I hope you have had a lovely half term week and have enjoyed our lovely summer weather.  This quote helped me to get out and make the most of it.

I also hope that you feel refreshed and ready to settle back into your home learning.  We have been so impressed with all that you have been doing.

Activities for this week:

  • The new paper pack that was made available in the week before half term

Hello again,

I hope you are all well.  This is the last week of this half term, before a well-earned week off, so really try to give your work your best effort this week.  I found a new quote this week (which I had never seen before) and as well as having a nice positive message, links to our garden birdwatch and your reading comprehension activity last week.

I have prepared a new paper pack of English and maths activities and you will hear from school once they are ready for collection.  (We have included as many answers as possible in it.)

Monday 11th May

Hello again.  I hope you had a good weekend and perhaps joined in with some VE day celebrations.  If you did do anything at home feel free to share what you did with us, it is lovely to see what you have all been up to.   I thought it would be appropriate to share a quote from Winston Churchill who was our prime minister for most of WW2.

 

Once again, well done for all of your hard work so far.  Please continue to send your work to us if you can, it is lovely to see it.  For this week continue to pick and choose work from:

  • the ‘Healthy Eating/Restaurant’ activities grid from last week
  • the paper packs (I am working on a new one for next week)
  • the other new ideas below


Maths choose from:


English choose from:

  • Reading– as much as you can! (Have you read the book Mrs Lloyd let you borrow from her collection?) Thank you to those children who have let us know that they have – it is always nice to know what you are reading.  Don’t forget reading a recipe also counts, so feel free to bake and read!
  • Garden birds reading comprehension. I thought this might bring back nice memories of when we did the RSPBs Big Schools Birdwatch. garden birds reading comprehension
  • Punctuation revision: brackets https://www.bbc.co.uk/bitesize/articles/zn8c47h A BBC lesson which has online tasks and then a worksheet to finish which I have included here. brackets and parenthesisnworksheet
  • Spelling: how to spell the ‘shun’ sound. https://www.bbc.co.uk/bitesize/topics/zt62mnb/articles/zyv4qhv
  • Use this image as a prompt for a piece of writing. It could be used to inspire a story, a descriptive piece, a poem, a newspaper report about an event that happened here….you choose.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Art: as so many of you were enjoying origami club – how about having a go at some more origami?

I have just received a photo of the ducks from Mrs Marsh (taken a few weeks ago – just before they went back to the farm) which I thought you might like to see!

 

 

Monday 4th May

Hello again!  I hope you are all well and ready for a 4-day week of home learning!  It was lovely to speak to many of you and your families again last week and hear what you have been up to.  Sometimes it is easy to get going and other days it is not quite so easy and that thought brought these quotes to mind…..

 

 

Well done for all of your hard work so far.  Please continue to send your work to us if you can, it is lovely to see it.  For this week continue to pick and choose work from:

  • the new ‘Healthy Eating/Restaurant’ activities grid which will release on Google classroom and is also here Healthy Eating Activities
  • the paper packs that were made available the week before last
  • the other new ideas below.

New activities:

  • I have added more activities to Mathletics
  • Follow the White Rose home learning on their website. This is the scheme we follow in school, so if you have already started you now need week 3.  (If not use week 1 and/or 2.)   Although this is new learning, each lesson has a video explanation with the visuals we would usually use in class and then has a worksheet to complete.
  • My maths activity for this week is co-ordinates: first try the coordinate-grid (answers on the second page). Then have a go at https://nrich.maths.org/6288  where you have to hunt for treasure.  This would lead nicely to a game of battleships… battleship-game
  • Spelling task: when is the i sound spelt with a y? https://www.bbc.co.uk/bitesize/topics/zt62mnb/articles/z3mktv4
  • History Writing task: Find out about VE day (Victory in Europe Day) – it’s the 75th Anniversary on Friday. Produce a page about what you discover about the day.  You could even celebrate the anniversary with your household, perhaps do some baking and have a tea party like many families did 75 years ago.  You could even try making some paper bunting as decorations (or if you are feeling ambitious make use of your new found sewing skills and use fabric instead).

We would love you to share your work (or any questions you have) with us if you can, either by posting on Google classroom, or by emailing school using child@aepri.co.uk

Monday 27th April

Hello once again!  I hope you had a positive week and were able to make the most of our glorious weather.  With the clear evenings we have had, I have been enjoying some star gazing and it reminded me of a quote about friends……..

Perhaps you can look out for some of the constellations we learnt about in the planetarium. 

Thank you for all of your hard work so far – and for sending us your work when you can.  Please continue to pick and choose work from:

  • the space activities grid
  • the paper packs that were made available last week
  • the new ideas below.

Do remember it is quality, not quantity that counts – and to pick and choose what works for you and your family.

New activities:

  • I have added more activities to Mathletics
  • Follow the White Rose home learning on their website. This is the scheme we follow in school, so if you did this last week follow week 2.  (If not use week 1.)   Although this is new learning, each lesson has a video explanation with the visuals we would usually use in class and then has a worksheet to complete.
  • My maths problem for this week: try this game called Polyplug rectangles https://nrich.maths.org/7511 How quickly can you find the monkey’s hidden rectangle?
  • Spelling task: when is the s sound spelt ‘sc’? https://www.bbc.co.uk/bitesize/topics/zt62mnb/articles/zt932nb
  • Writing task: to give a full write up of the reaction times science experiment below. Remember to include what you are testing, how your test is fair, why we can trust your results (reliability), a results table and – most importantly – what your results show.
  • Science experiment: reaction times! Watch the following video to find out how you can test the reaction times of the people in your household using just a ruler! https://www.bbc.co.uk/teach/class-clips-video/science-design-and-technology-ks2-experimenting-with-reaction-times/zbq2t39  Remember to repeat your tests (and then find an average for each person).  You could see if the younger members of your household have faster reaction times than the older ones.  You could then have a go at adding in distractions, just like they did in the video.  There is a results table which you may like to use.

Monday 20th April

Hello again Year 5!  I hope you are all well and have some Easter Eggs left to enjoy?!  It has been lovely to speak to you and your families over the past couple of weeks and hear all about what you have been up to.

As tomorrow would have been the start of the summer term, we will now continue to add new work for you to try at home – but we are not expecting you to do all of it!  Please pick and choose what works for you.

 

 

One of the requests from the phone calls to families was for a new ‘paper’ pack of work – like we sent home at the start of the closure.  So I have put together a new pack that will be photocopied in school for you which covers Maths and English.  You will receive a message from school about how to collect one of these (if you would like one) later this week. 

As many of you have enjoyed selecting activities from the Vikings grid, a new grid all about Space will appear on Google classroom tomorrow morning if you would like to use that.  It is also available here.  Space Activities

Maths wise you have some choices:

 

English wise you have some choices:

  • Keep reading!
  • Make use of the new paper pack that will be available later this week (details above)
  • Spelling task: learn about the suffixes ‘ture’ and ‘sure’ at this link https://www.bbc.co.uk/bitesize/topics/zt62mnb/articles/z3jpk2p
  • Writing task: use this image to inspire a piece of writing. Imagine you are looking up and this is what you can see.  How is it flying?  Where will it land?  Who is inside?  Or alternatively, imagine you are inside it.  How did you get where you are?  What will happen next?

We would love you to share your work (or any questions you have) with us if you can, either by posting on Google classroom, or by emailing school using child@aepri.co.uk

Happy Easter Year 5!                                               April 3rd 

Well done to all of you who have been working at home – you should be really proud of yourselves.  As you know we don’t set homework during the holidays, so we hope you relax and enjoy your Easter break.  Here are my quotes for this week..

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

We will post some more work for you after the 2 week holiday.  However, if some of you do want some activities to try during the break (maybe because you can’t do all the things you would normally do) we have a selection of Viking activities for you to try.  Feel free to share your work with us on google classroom.

Take care and Happy Easter,

Mrs Poulton, Mrs Vincent and Mrs Pearce

Hello Year 5                                                        March 29th

I hope you and your families are well and that you are starting to adapt to life at home.  I am sure every household is having some ups and some downs at the moment!  I have chosen two more quotes to try and keep you positive…

Well done to those of you that have completed some Mathletics activities – great job!  I know that you will have more than enough maths and English work to continue with – we have already given you plenty, so here are some suggestions for other subjects….

Geography

This geography website has loads of quizzes – and had some countries I’d not heard of!  Have a go – it’s great fun.

https://world-geography-games.com

Science

This link lets you practise your animal grouping and classification…

http://www.crickweb.co.uk/ks2science.html  

For a speedy warm up choose the ‘Variation grouping’ and afterwards try the one simply called ‘Variation’ further down the page. Enjoy.

Take care and have a positive week, Mrs Poulton

 

March 23rd

Hello Year 5!  I hope that the start of your home learning time has gone well.  Do remember that the adults in your house will be doing their best to help you – be kind to them.  It is a new experience for them too! 

I will really miss teaching you – and look forward to when we can continue to learn together. However, until that time I will add tasks and suggestions to this area of the website to keep you thinking and learning.  Have fun!

So – what should you be doing at home? 

Some exercise – skipping, playing in the garden, or following an online activity are all good ideas.  Perhaps you could even design your own circuit training session like we have done in the hall a few times.

Reading – curl up with a good book!

Being creative – there were lots of ideas on one of the pages in the pack we sent home. 

Some maths – you have sheets in the pack we sent home.  Also use Mathletics (I will add suggested tasks for you), Rock Stars and ‘Transum’ is the other website we have used in class.

Some writing – again there are ideas in the pack and exercise book we sent home.

Finally here is the link to the Countdown game we played together on the last day – perhaps get your whole family involved!

http://happysoft.org.uk/countdown/wordgame.php

I will aim to add ideas linked to other subjects in the coming weeks. 

If you want to get in touch with us, maybe to share some good news with us, or if you want to let us know how you are feeling, you can email us on child@aepri.co.uk

Your grownups can use schoolsupport@aepri.co.uk to ask us anything about your learning, or anything else they need to know.

Take care,

Mrs Poulton
