Year 5 Home Learning

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.)

Activities for this week:


Maths chose from:


English choose from:

As ever, 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

Remember 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

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

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

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

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

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
