Good Afternoon Year 5!
Good afternoon Year 5,
I know you're itching to start your weekend, don't worry, you're nearly done for the day! Again, well done for working so hard this week, I've seen some impressive work on Seesaw. Now, another tip to keep a positive attitude: Treat yourself to some self-care everyday! It’s always important to take care of both your physical and mental health. In order to keep moving forward with a positive attitude, it’s essential that you take a step back sometimes and treat yourself to something special. E.g. watching a movie, baking, eating a take out, etc. By allowing yourself these moments of pure bliss and rest, you can ensure a more positive attitude when you’re on the work hard.
As mentioned earlier, the answers to the tasks can be found under the appropriate sections; please self-mark your answers. It may also be helpful to write a self-reflection under each task on what you have learnt today and any targets you may like to set yourself.
Have a good evening!
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 continue your writing, focusing on the method- the key instructional part. You will write down the method as numbered steps, making sure to go in chronological order. Here, all your careful work during the research and planning will be applied as you will need to add in all the details. Begin each step with fronted adverbials and use imperative (bossy) verbs to give the instructions. As you write the instructions, you can also explain to the reader why you are doing certain things. E.g: ‘Remember, the heart will be kept in the body because…’. Write all the steps down until you finish the mummification part of the process.
Top tips/ advice
This section may include any advice you would give to the reader (embalmer) e.g: what may be placed on top of the mummy at the end, or perhaps a skilled technique to wrap the mummy. You will not need more than three top tips and they can be bullet pointed.
Please carefully edit your writing when you are done against the success criteria and upload to Seesaw for your teachers to check. A model will be available for you at 3pm.
IT IS IMPORTANT YOUR WRITING IS CLEAR AND PRECISE, CAUSING NO CONFUSION FOR THE READER. IMAGINE YOUR AUDIENCE IS A MARTIAN FROM SPACE, WHO NEEDS EVERYTHING EXPLAINED CLEARLY.
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.

Good Morning Year 5!
Good Morning Year 5,
It's Fabulous Friday! Hooray!! Well done, you got through another week of learning - give yourself a pat on the back! Now, who remembers what I said last week? I will be sharing some tips on how to remain positive in the next few weeks. One tip to keep a positive attitude is to: start a gratitude journal. A gratitude journal is a wonderful way to stay positive every day with little to no effort. Once a day, you can jot down at least three aspects of your day for which you feel thankful. E.g. I am grateful for: 1. I ate my favourite cereal - Cocopops! 2. My mum/carer helped me with my work and explained the task very well. 3. I watched a humorous film which made me laugh so much! Sounds great, doesn't it? It will help you appreciate everything a little bit more! Now back to work...
You will find all the work for today under its sections, please complete them to the best of your ability. If you require help, please ask adults or elder siblings for support, there are also many different resources online that can help you. You may also ask teachers for help via Seesaw.
Please note: some answers to the tasks will be available at 3pm. Make sure you come to check the answers and self-mark your answers.
