Good Afternoon Everybody!
Good afternoon Year 5,
Its me again! So, how has your afternoon been so far? I hope you all had a good lunch, something nutritious. Did you enjoy today’s work? How are you finding the text for reading? It’s interesting right? Ancient Egyptian is a topic that most enjoy, I particularly enjoy the topic of pharaohs. I haven’t been to Egypt yet but my friends have and they all love talking about their experience with the pyramids. I hope to visit Egypt one day soon, for now reading about it will have to suffice right?
As mentioned earlier, the answers to the tasks can be found under the appropriate sections; please self-mark your answers. It may also be helpful to write a self-reflection under each task on what you have learnt today and any targets you may like to set yourself.
Have a good evening!
Joe Wicks is back for another week to motivate us for our love for PE. Please subscribe to his YouTube channel below to take part in his live PE lessons from 9-9.30am. Remember it is important to stay fit and active even though you are indoors.
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.

Today you will write the second main paragraph. Ensure you begin with a subheading which tells the reader what the paragraph will be about, completely different from what you did yesterday.
Begin with a topic sentence that details what the paragraph will be about. Include details about the topic, linking ideas with phrases and adverbials. Don’t forget to refer to the success criteria for guidance of what else you need to include.
Please edit your writing when you have finished.

Good Morning Everybody!
Good Morning Year 5,
I hope you all and your families are doing rather well! I can see you are all still roaring with dedication with your work. Some fabulous work has been uploaded on Seesaw. Well done Year 5 Warriors! I was really impressed with some of the Egyptian masks that my class produced. I’m sure all other teachers feel the same about the masks that they viewed on Seesaw. Today you’ll be doing some interesting investigation tasks for Science, looking forward to seeing your work. Remember to upload work on Seesaw.
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.
