Good Afternoon Year 5!
Good afternoon Year 5,
Well done for getting through the first day of the week, only four more days of hard work to get through before your weekend starts. Yes, it’s all about positive thinking! You have some exciting lessons the next two weeks, especially for D&T. I am looking forward to seeing it all in Seesaw. Right, a tip to keep a positive attitude is to: crack more jokes. Humour truly is the best medicine. Laughter has great impact on your mindset and body. It can also help you cope with difficult situations and, generally, make you feel happier. By cracking more jokes, you can make humour out of potentially negative situations at school, and - at the same time - prepare your body and mind for a more positive outlook.
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 practise descriptive writing skills for a story opening
This week, we will continue descriptive writing based on pyramid exploration. But this time, we will make the writing far more suspenseful, almost spooky. Our character this week will discover an untouched, newly discovered room with a sarcophagus (coffin) when he enters a new part of the pyramid that had been hidden behind a false passage. And it’s not empty.
Our objective will be to use our Year 5 writing techniques to powerfully describe the thoughts and feelings around the discovery of the sarcophagus, the sarcophagus itself and the occupant inside (the mummy).
Today, you will focus on making powerful descriptive phrases for four different parts of your writing: the Valley of the Kings, the tomb entrance, the inside of the tomb and the sarcophagus and the mummy using: relative clauses, expanded noun phrases, dashes (-), prepositions and powerful vocabulary.
Please find below this weeks spellings for you to practise this week. Ensure you focus on your handwriting. This week you are going to be doing assessment papers in order to consolidate what you have learnt this year.
