 Dear parents/carers and children,

 

We have put together a series of activities for any Year 5 pupils (who are working from home and self-isolating at the moment) to access.  The activities suggested will give the children the opportunity to keep practising key skills through a variety of tasks whilst not at school.  We will continue to add to the sections so please check in regularly for updated resources and work/task suggestions. We have also included answer pages in order for you to go through tasks together and as a self-marking exercise which will give the children some instant feedback.  

We have created a document outlining the activities we have set.

Class Room Secrets Activities

Homework
Homework will be sent home every Friday in a pouch wallet and will focus on Maths, Literacy and Spellings. We expect homework to be returned by the following Wednesday. This will give the teachers sufficient time to see the work that has been completed. Please don't forget to come and see your teacher as soon as possible if you are struggling with any homework so that we can support you.  

Spellings

Spellings will also be put onto this web page each week (see below) and spelling tests will take place every Friday based on the spellings given.  Your child should also write a sentence for each spelling in their Spelling Sentence book and return this homework to their Literacy teacher on the following Wednesday.

 

Reading

Your child has got an Oxford Reading Tree book, which has been provided by their literacy teacher based on their standard of reading. It is your child's responsibility to change this book once they have read it.  

 

P.E
Indoor PE will take place on a Thursday afternoon.  Can you ensure your child has a plain white t-shirt and shorts and indoor trainers with non-marking soles (standard black pumps would be preferred).Outdoor P.E will take place on a Friday afternoon (weather depending) and therefore can you please make sure that if you take your kit home on Friday that you bring it back into school on Monday morning. Can you also remember (especially if you have pierced ears) that all jewellery must be removed before a P.E lesson starts. Plasters can not be used to cover piercings. 

During Autumn 1, the children had the opportunity to take part in a STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics) project. They were supported by real life engineers from the local community. Over the six week period, Year 5 worked in small groups attempting to solve a global issue by making prototypes out of different materials of their choice. Here are some examples of our work:

This term, we are studying Peasants, Pestilence and Princes. During this topic we will be studying big questions. 

 

 

How did the worldwide spread of disease impact Britain?

 

Did the Great Fire of London stop the spread of the Great Plague after September 1666?

 

How has the control of diseases developed over time?
