Good Afternoon Everybody!
Answers are available to you now for reading, maths (on Bitesize) and I have written an example of what two paragraphs of your non-chronological report could look like. Have a look for support.
A reminder to you all, please ensure you are accessing Bug Club, My Maths, Times Table Rockstar and Purple Mash. They are all supportive of your learning progress. We regularly check them to see how you are doing. If you are not accessing Bug Club, please review books as frequently as you can and share them with us on Seesaw.
Remember, if you are unsure about anything, please don’t hesitate to contact us. Also, share your work onto Seesaw to share with your class teacher, so they can see how you are doing. We will be happy to hear from you.
Have a lovely day, enjoy the weather and take breaks in between your learning. They are important to take for us all.
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 comprehension 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 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 write the second and third main paragraphs. Both should begin with a subheading which tells the reader what the paragraphs will be about, both completely different from what you did yesterday. Begin with a topic sentence that details what the paragraph will be about. Include details about the topic, linking ideas with phrases and adverbials. Don’t forget to refer to the success criteria for guidance of what else you need to include.

Log on to Charanga, then go onto Assignments, after that Reflect, Rewind and Replay Year 5 Step 1. Do the following:
Good Morning Everybody!
Hello and good morning Year 5!
The final term back, encompassed with the fascinating topic of Ancient Egyptians. The Ancient civilisations were one of my favourite topics to study and I particularly enjoyed engaging with the mysteries surrounding the pyramids and the discoveries made from them. I also recommend The Kane Chronicles, a trilogy by Rick Riordan (author of the Percy Jackson and Heroes of Olympus series). They make for exceptionally fun reads about Ancient Egyptians in modern times and their adventures are brilliant.
Either way, whether you indulge in fictional writing, or as you learn through the coming weeks with us, I hope you enjoy the topic as much as I do. Get involved, get crafty and enjoy learning from this magnificent part of history.
As always, if you need any support, you can contact your class teachers via Seesaw and they will get back to you. Please continue sharing your work with us.
See you at 3,
