I hope you are keeping well.
I have attached various lessons (see below) to help you through the next few weeks while the schools are closed. I have also included a timetable to help you structure each day and organise your time. There is no hard and fast rule, but it should help you when orienteering the work I have set.
Please keep safe and well and I hope to see you soon.
Please read this overview of expectations:
YEAR 5 HOME LEARNING OVERVIEW
Dear Year 5,
I hope that you are keeping safe and well.
Along with the attached timetable here is how you can organise your day to get the most learning while you are off school.
There are two weeks worth of assigned work. More will be uploaded – so keep checking the blog.
• 2 weeks English
• 2 weeks Maths
• 2 Science Lessons
• 2 PSCHE
• 2 RE
• 2 Geography
• For computing please use: https://scratch.mit.edu/ and the attached programme
If you follow the attached timetable it will give you a full day of learning and activities. The English work has answers so can be marked by your parents, as can the Maths work. I have left the other activities a bit more open ended. Wherever possible, I will endeavour to also upload the answers so that you or a family member can mark your work.
You can either complete your work on individual pieces of paper which you collate in a folder or ring binder, a notebook or exercise book, or using a computer if your parents allow this. If you find it too easy, consider looking for more challenging activities to complete online. If you find it too much of a challenge,, try asking a family member to help you. Finally, we will only be setting work during term time dates, so you’ll have two weeks off uploading over the Easter holidays.
Mr Harper has had some excellent ideas for Non-Assigned work, so I shall just re-iterate what he has said here:
● Read – every day for 30 minutes. It doesn’t really matter what you read, as long as you read something!
● PE – aim for at least 30 minutes of physical activity a day. Go for a walk, play games in the garden, dance, do yoga, complete work-outs – there are plenty of options.
● PSHE – try to spend 30 minutes a day without looking at any kind of screen, but instead spending time with your family. You could play board games, help with the housework or even just have a chat. Ring your relatives if you have any – they would love to hear from you, especially grand-parents.
● Music – if you are lucky enough to have a musical instrument at home, there are loads of fantastic videos on YouTube which can help you practise it (including the ukulele, which you have all been great at this term!) If you don’t have access to an instrument, try simply listening to different kinds of music and don’t ever doubt the virtue of a good old-fashioned singsong!
● Art and DT – there is nothing wrong with simply having a sketchbook and just doing some mark-making or drawing whenever the moment strikes you. Remember that cooking is also part of DT!
Every moment you have is a learning opportunity. If you follow the timetable I have set you will have something close to a full school day. However, you now have more time to complete an activity or a lesson. Don’t try to rush, the more effort you put in the quicker the time will go. However, reading is the key to everything and there is no better way to educate, entertain and spend time than reading a good book.
Please keep yourselves safe and hopefully we will be all be back in school soon.
Please follow the attached timetable
Please find attached 2 weeks of lessons including:
2 weeks English
2 weeks Maths
2 Science Lessons
For computing please use:
and the attached programme
English – Alongside the Punctuation worksheets try and create a story based on a new picture everyday (it could be from a painting, a found object or something seen from your window). Spend about 30 to 40 minutes writing, put on some nice relaxing music and drift away into your imagination – don’t forget to edit and improve at the end!
From days 9 – 10 please find some reading comprehension.
Maths – Complete these by following the lesson plans and answering the destination questions. Don’t worry to much about following to the letter of the plan, and further resources for reflection can easily be found online. (Google reflection worksheets https://www.math-aids.com/ is a good website for maths in general) Each step is a lesson, with the destination questions the work we would complete in our maths books.
Geography – (Revision lesson) Follow the Lesson plan, by the end of the lesson the children should understand the different climatic zones of Brazil. We have looked at this in class, but this should give you more opportunity to research in detail.
Science – (Revision lesson) Create a poster to explain how solids and liquids change state. We have been looking at changing states of matter, and it would be very useful to revise this and go into more detail. I am also adding a challenge: What is a non-Newtonian material? How does it differ from other materials?
LESSON 2 – This term we have been looking at habitats. Research how birds build nests and then using found materials try and build a stable birds nest.
We have been looking at Judaism this term and I have attached two lessons worth of work and some work sheets.
Computing – using scratch try and programme this game. Then using the skills you learned try and make a game called WhackaUnicorn!
There are lots of good resources for PSCHE on the following website:
