Please upload work on Seesaw so your teachers can appreciate all the brilliant learning taking place at home.

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 locate places of importance on a map of Egypt.
Brief Background Information:
Over 90% of Egypt is covered by desert, which was often referred to as the Red Land and was not easily habitable. The River Nile was a major influence on the daily lives of the people. In ancient times, most of the population occupied the area on the banks of the river, the Kemet or Black Land, named after the dark silt that remained when the flood waters receded. This was where the farmers grew their crops.
You need to:
1. Read the PowerPoint.
2. Using the PowerPoint and world map provided, complete the Map of Egypt labelling sheet (You can self-mark by looking at slide 6).
3. Complete worksheet on the River Nile.
Good Morning Year 5!
Good morning Year 5,
Happy Tuesday! As always, well done for continuing with your learning. I hope to see more writing work uploaded via Seesaw as it remains an integral part of your learning and needs to be practiced. This week’s topic links to your D.T so it would be great for you to know what to do. Keep on persevering, all of you. Only a few more weeks left!
Remember, if you are unsure about anything, you can contact your teacher via Seesaw. Make sure you take brain breaks, eat healthily and drink lots of water! I will be back at 3!
