Good Afternoon Year 5!

 

Good Afternoon Year 5,

 

You got through today – well done! Hope your learning went well and you enjoyed your activities. Remember anytime you need support, please ask adults or elder siblings to support you, there are also many resources that can be found on the internet to assist you.

 

As you know the answers for all your tasks where already attached at the bottom of the sheets or on the relevant links. For English, I have uploaded the introduction and equipment model example where you can compare your work to. Make sure you self-mark and upload your pictures onto See saw for your teachers to view.

 

Also, remember to carry out your homework by logging on to:  My Maths, TT Rockstars and Bug Club. Well done to all the students who have logged in today! Your teachers are monitoring this closely every day. Ensure you are reading daily for at least 30 minutes and filling in your Reading Records (remember our year 5 expectations for reading records - quality comments).

 

It also important to have regular breaks use them moderately. Please make sure you sleep at a sensible time so you are fresh for the next day. Rest well and we will see you here tomorrow morning. If you are unsure of anything, please don't hesitate to contact us.  

 

See you tomorrow

Reading

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.

Writing

LO: To know how to organise ideas around a theme.

Today you will begin writing. Firstly, choose an appropriate title that captures the purpose of your writing.

 

Introduction: When writing your introduction, explain what the end result will be (what the instructions will help the reader to do). This will usually include questions to engage the reader and the use of adjectives and emotive language. Imagine you are writing instructions for the mummification of a pharaoh. It’s important to keep your audience in mind (the embalmer).

 

Equipment: Here, you will be writing a list of things the reader will need, such as the equipment and utensils for the embalming process as well as the storage jars (canopic jars) and other materials necessary for the mummification. Remember to include your subheading and write the equipment out as a list with bullet points.

 

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. 

Maths

2. Rewind and Listen Out! U Can’t Touch This by MC Hammer

Good Morning Year 5!

 

Good Morning Year 5,

 

It’s Terrific Thursday! How are you all on this fine day? Another day to go until the weekend – keep up your energy - you’re doing great! This week has been packed with lots of history, what a wonderful subject – discovering all the interesting things that once happened in the past. How have you felt researching and learning about what happened in Ancient Egypt? I am certain that your minds are buzzing with all the learning. I can’t wait to see you start your instructional write on mummification. This is so fascinating, makes you think what life was like in those days.

 

So lets get on with today. As always, please see today’s learning on this webpage. 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 that can help you online. You may also ask teachers for help via Seesaw. Remember to upload work on Seesaw. 

 

As always all your teachers are going to continue to monitor your homework on My Maths, TT Rockstars and Bug Club.

 

I shall see you at 3!
