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, describe something that happens. Perhaps you hear a sound or hear a movement. You can really engage the reader here by using suspense. Use short sentence and long sentences, repetition and dashes to create impact in your writing. You must build to this using what your character notices around themselves and detail. Your build up can end as a cliff hanger if necessary. – weblink for video

For todays task I would like you to take what you have learnt this week about standard English and write a short paragraph, ensuring you refer back to the learning from each day.


Logon to Charanga, then go onto Assignments, after that Reflect, Rewind and Replay Year 5 Step 6. Do the following:


1. Click onto Clapping Music by Steve Reich (Contemporary). 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! Sugar Pie, Honey Bunch (I Can’t Help Myself) sung by The Four Tops.


3. Reflect - Composers and Composition (Jason Yarde)


4. A composition activity using the Music Explorer resource

Good Morning Year 5!


Good morning Year 5,


The answer for yesterday’s joke is… the ruler! I have another joke for today. But before we go onto that, must I say I have been seeing some great work on Seesaw. Keep it up! Well done! The joke for today: what do librarians take with them when they go fishing? Yes, I know you want to know the answer but you have to wait 24 hours for the answer to be revealed! Its learning time now that’s why!


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.


Happy learning!


Miss Ahmed
