Good Afternoon Year 5!


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.

L.O: To research how to make a canopic jar model


This week, you will be writing instructions of how to make a canopic jar model. Canopic jars were used to store the organs during the process of mummification. The aim of this week’s English is for you to prepare quality instructions that YOU can (or a classmate) follow to make your own canopic jar during D.T. Today, you will be watching a few videos to find out how to make a canopic jar model, making notes as you watch to get ideas of how to write your own instructions. You can alter things from the video in your own notes so they better match what you have available at home. The weblink for your planning is available via the PDF document uploaded. Make detailed notes as you go, taking care to include all equipment/materials necessary to make the model, e.g: scissors, glue or tape.



Please use the link above to access the daily Maths lessons on BBC Bitesize. When you click on the link, you will see various subjects, click Maths and follow the instructions on the screen. Home learning focus will be on there daily. Each lesson will include a variety of activities, worksheets and videos. Complete all your learning in your book and Seesaw the work you have been doing daily, after self-marking the activities (answers will be found under the relevant activities). 


Once you have finished your learning on BBC Bitesize, 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.
