Good Afternoon Everybody!
Good afternoon Year 5
I hope you had a fantastic learning experience today. A massive well done to you all for the effort you continue to make with your home learning. Please upload work on Seesaw so your teachers can appreciate all the brilliant learning taking place at home. I hope you all a very restful, relaxing weekend. Do something different but don’t forget to delve into a good story book.
Good Morning Everybody!
Good morning Year 5,
Happy Friday! Well done for completing another week or learning. I’ve been in at school all of this week and have seen a few of your classmates as well as your classrooms. It really isn’t the same without you all. In addition, I’ve seen that many of you have been thinking carefully about your WCR learning and have continued to practise working on applying Year 5 standards and expectations to writing. Well done for keeping the quality high as you work. Keep it up today as you end your week.
Please remember that if you need any help, your teachers are available on Seesaw, so do not hesitate to contact them. Also please keep uploading your work on Seesaw.
Make sure you take brain breaks, eat healthily and drink lots of water! I will be back at 3!
See you then
Joe Wicks is back for another week to motivate us for our love for PE. Please subscribe to his YouTube channel below to take part in his live PE lessons from 9-9.30am. Remember it is important to stay fit and active even though you are indoors.
This term, as part of your reading learning, you are required to use Bug Club everyday for 30 minutes and then spend the other 30 minutes of your reading session to complete another reading activity we will provide.
When using Bug Club, it is important you are answering the questions carefully, by referring to the text to find the correct evidence to support your answers. Your teachers will be monitoring your answers carefully, so ensure you are putting in the same effort that you would at school.
When answering reading comprehension and vocabulary questions, remember to be using taught techniques from school and annotate the questions and text, remembering to also refer to the text in your answers to support your points. A good tip is to read the questions first before you read the text, so you have a rough idea on where the clues for the questions and answer may be.
It is important you are reading everyday to help you develop your reading skills as well as learn new vocabulary, which will make your spoken language and writing even better! These skills will help you later on in life and out of school, not just for your learning in school so please ensure you are reading regularly.

LO: To know how to organise ideas around a theme.
Today you will conclude your non- chronological report. Make a ‘Fun Fact’ section, to include additional interesting things you have found out. You can bullet point these and write them as ‘Did you know’ questions as well.
You will end the writing with a glossary. Include the word ‘glossary’ as your subheading. Choose three topic words that you will give the definitions for in bullet point form. These must be three unfamiliar topic words you have used in the text that the reader can refer to the glossary for meaning and clarification.
You can also include a picture or diagram of your own to complete the work.
Please edit your writing when you have finished
Once you have finished your learning, it is crucial you spend at least 20minutes on MyMaths or Times Table Rockstars (swapping between them each day), to ensure you are reviewing your learning and revising your maths skills making them stronger. Please let your teachers know on Seesaw if you are struggling to log on.

LO: To be able to improve a photo with different editing tools.
You need to:
1. Take photographs of a scenery and add to other documents / sites to edit them. You can use any apps on a mobile phone (e.g. Typic Kids) or on a tablet too (make sure the apps are safe for you to use – ask an adult first).
2. Enhance and edit the photos. Make it creative too.
3. Try different editing tools e.g. blur, filter, brightening, add borders, etc. Think about when it might be appropriate for these to be used, for example to blur out a child’s face (on a public poster) so they can’t be recognised.
