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. I have uploaded the answers for reading and English, I have uploaded the teacher modelling of the method 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 very important to have regular breaks. Please make sure you sleep at a sensible time so you are fresh for the next day. 


"There is virtue in work and there is virtue in rest. Use both and overlook neither" - Alan Cohen


See you tomorrow

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 continue your writing, focusing on the method- the key instructional part. You will write down the method as numbered steps, making sure to go in chronological order. Here, all your careful work during the research and planning will be applied as you will need to add in all the details. Begin each step with fronted adverbials and use imperative (bossy) verbs to give the instructions. As you write the instructions, you can also explain to the reader why you are doing certain things.



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. Please let your teachers know on Seesaw if you are struggling to log on.

Logon to Charanga, then go onto Assignments, after that Reflect, Rewind and Replay Year 5 Step 5. Do the following:
