Good Afternoon Everybody!
Good afternoon Year 5,
Wow! I've been enjoying learning about Egyptian Gods this week, have you? Since I was little, I've always enjoyed learning about different religions. Thus, it was interesting to learn about Gods from centuries ago. I can see some really good paragraphs were written for the report. It shows me that you all enjoyed this topic too! Great! Keep up the hard work!
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!
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 words that you will give the definitions for in bullet point form. These must be three 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.

Log on to Charanga, then go onto "Assignments", after that "Reflect, Rewind and Replay Year 5 Step 3".
Do the following:
1. Click onto Symphony No 5 in C minor Opus 67 by Beethoven (Romantic). It’s important that you listen to the track and answer the questions on the screen. Think about how it makes you feel, is there any particular reason why it makes you feel this way (beats,
pitch, etc)? It’s vital that you can feel a connection to the track and have some reflection whilst listening to it.
2. Rewind and Listen Out! Hello by Lionel Richie
3. Reflect - Composers and Composition (Rachel Portman)
4. A composition activity using the Music Explorer resource

Good Morning Everybody!
Good Morning Year 5,
I hope you all and your families are doing rather well! So the weather has been up and down this week, right? Having some sun was good for some ice cream and the rain was good for cooling down. Its's all good! Lets stay positive! Speaking about positivity, what does positivity mean to you? For me, its being optimistic about things even though everything is not perfect. Its important we see good in all that is around us and the people around us; it makes us appreciate everyone and everything a little bit more! The next few weeks, I will try to share some tips on how to stay positive. It will be a good reminder for me too! Now back to some learning...
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.
