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.

L.O: To effectively use the skills of planning


Today, you will need to watch the video, shared with you via a weblink. It demonstrates the discoveries and experience of a person as he entered an ancient tomb. Using the video and vocabulary provided (also uploaded below), you will be planning an opening and build up. We will give you the very beginning of the story as well:


Standing at the entrance of the towering opening of the deserted tomb, I felt a foreboding sense of trepidation fill me. Nevertheless, after all this time of searching, I knew I had to go in. I slowly stepped forward and entered the ancient tomb…


Your story will continue from here!


You did setting description work yesterday, which you can use and improve for both your planning and writing. Using the planning template, decide what you experience in the tomb. – weblink for video

Good Morning Year 5!


Good Morning Year 5,


Right, who followed the ‘tip to keep a positive attitude’ today that I shared with you yesterday? Did you find it helpful? If so, how? I think most of us will agree that waking up early and starting the day positively and head strong will definitely pave a good day ahead for us. Moving on, I have a little joke to share with you, to start your day with some laughter.  What did the pen say to the pencil? What do you think the answer to this question is? Hmm… I will share the answer to this tomorrow! Let’s start out work for today…


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.
