Thursday 4th June

Hello Year 5!

Let's all say a big HAPPY BIRTHDAY to Aimee today.  Have a great day!!! x

I hope you are all well today and ready for some more activities (don't groan.....)

Here we go.... 

1.Reading 

Please complete the LBQ task I have set, the code is: rhy

2.Literacy 

Yesterday we looked at some ideas about life on other planets. Hopefully you managed to take notes, these are important as we are going to write a story. You are going to write your story as if you have discovered life on another planet!  Before we start writing our story, as you all know, the planning stage needs to happen.  Every great story has a beginning, a middle and an end. However, as we are nearing the end of year 5 it is time you put all the tools and devices you have learnt into making this piece of narrative the best yet.  I have attached a worksheet that contains some story mapping boxes. Using your notes from yesterday I would like you to complete the first three boxes on that. No need to print, you can complete the task in your books using the box titles for headings. Story-Mapping-Boxes-1.pdf 

3.Numeracy

Please spend 10 mins on PIXL times tables 

I have set some activities on Education City, these are looking at time. Please find them titled. 8th June.

Then if you have time, spend some time on Prodigy. 

4.Art 

Earlier in the week we did some research as to who Norman Foster was.  Born in 1935 in Manchester, England, Sir Norman Foster is an award-winning British architect known for sleek, modern designs of steel and glass with innovations in contouring and inner space management'  Using the statement above I would like you to draw some sketches that will accompany your Literacy work on 'An Imaginary World' life on other planets.  You are going to design a building that would be on your planet.

Don't forget to keep moving! The weather is ideal for a walk around the village

Tuesday 5th May

Year 5, did you notice yesterday that I forgot something?  My riddle! I am so sorry, here is a really tough riddle to make up for it..... 

What has to be broken before you can use it? Answer on Friday......

Today's Tasks  

1.Reading

Please read for 20 minutes (don't forget to log your reading!) 

Then use PIXL unlock for 10 minutes. 

2.Literacy/Topic

Please listen to this track by David Bowie called 'Space Oddity' 

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=iYYRH4apXDo

We are going to listen to the song twice.  The first time I just want you to listen. Take in the sounds of the song and the story the artist is telling.  On the second time I would like you to make some notes about the song. What is the song about? What language is used? Is there a style to the music?   Next I would like you to listen to your favourite song. In your green book I would like you to compare the 2 songs. 

I have attached an example of how to set out your work  Similarities-and-differences-activity.docx 

3.Numeracy 

I have been looking at Mathletics. I have re-assigned some activities and added some for those of you who had some missing in the Number section. Please take time to review these and work through them. (Obviously not all today as there are quite a lot!)

I have attached a Square Numbers activity book for you to work through. Please complete pages 1-5. No need to print, you can complete the work in your Yellow books.  t-m-31788-square-numbers-activity-booklet-ver-7.pdf

4.Art 

In David Bowie's song 'Space Oddity' he sings ' and the stars look very different, today'.  I would like you to sketch for me what you think he means. Are the stars different that he can see? Are they a different colour? Is the sun reflecting at a different angle? Making them look strange?  You may choose to draw/sketch 1 star, or the view he has from the space ship. You could listen to the song again to get some ideas.  I would love to see your pictures when you have finished. 

Don't forget to keep moving, I have found this fun Yoga workout, it only takes 30 mins! You could even do it outside if possible

Monday 4th May

Good Morning Year 5! 

I hope you had a relaxing weekend, here we are with another week of learning. I was really overwhelmed by all your efforts on our crafting activities last week. #proudteachermoment. 

This weekend we managed to squeeze a BBQ in and I even managed to jump in some puddles with Lillie.

As it is Monday here is the prodigy Leader Board (and can I just say that 4th position is a name I haven't seen for a while!)  

  1. Matthew 2. Neveah 3. Alfred

So here we go with our daily tasks:

1.Reading 

Please read a book for 20 minutes outside if it’s safe to do so, then use PIXL unlock for 10 mins 

2.Literacy 

As it is Monday, please ask an adult or sibling to test you on your spellings. Your new spellings are attached.  Spellings-4.5.20-1.docx

I have attached an Autobiography marking task. At the start there is an explanation and there are three levels, the same as in school. Please challenge yourselves and you can self-mark as the answers are provided.   Autobiogpraphy-of-a-School-Child-Text-Marking.pdf 

3.Numeracy

Please use the PIXL times tables app for 10 minutes. 

I would like you to play a game of Battleships! Battleships is a great way to revise our knowledge of co-ordinates.  I know some of your adults and older siblings may already know how to play this.  The best part is that you only need a pen and paper! For those of you who have never played before, here is a video explaining the rules and how to play. Try doing the best of 3 or, if you can, how about a family tournament? Do let me know who wins! https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=5JSgtvwu4Is

4.Music

Please refer to the ‘Classes’ page on the website for an optional challenge from Mr Coates.

From Mrs H

Friday 1st May

Good Morning!

Friday already, I can't believe how quick these weeks are going. As it is Friday here is a look at the Prodigy leader board: 

1. Matthew

2. Nevaeh

3. Alfred

And the anticipated answer to my riddle......

A carrot!! 

Let us get on with today's tasks 

1. Reading 

Please read for 20 minutes in your dressing gown or favourite snugly jumper, whatever time of day it is! 

2. Literacy

Today I would like you to write a lock down diary entry. However, whilst I want you include lots of information about how this week of home schooling has gone, I would like you to use your cohesion word mat to help you build cohesion within your paragraphs. Please use a pen if you have one and complete this task in your green book. Cohesion-Word-Mat.pdf

3. Numeracy

I have set a task on LBQ the code is: qki

I have also re- attached the times tables test and answers that I set a few weeks ago. I thought it would be good to see if you could improve your score!  Times-Table-Challenge-Test-and-Answers-2.pdf

4. Music

In school we would be looking at a man called 'David Bowie'  Can you create a thought bubble with some information about him? Who is he? What is he famous for? What are some of his songs called? What made him different to other musicians? You could ask an adult about him. Although I think many of the adults you live with may be far too young (like me!) to know about him........

I will be having a tidy up of Education City on Monday. I see that some of you still have some activities to complete. I will leave these on until Monday at 9am to give you a chance to complete them. 

Have a lovely weekend

Keep Learning

Thursday 30th April

Good Morning Year 5. I was thinking about how pets have been doing in lock down. I know a lot of you have different animals at home. Boris my cat seems very annoyed that Lillie and I are at home!

Tuesday 28th April

Bonjour Year 5!

Well it’s Tuesday and another day for us to get on with our learning. I was thinking to myself last night about how much I miss hearing all about what you guys have been up to! We will have so much to talk about when we see each other! I want to hear about all the exciting books you have read and how you have managed to keep yourselves busy.

OK, so here are today's tasks  

1.Reading

Please use PIXL unlock for 10 mins and then read for 10 mins. Make sure to record your reading! I have been collecting prizes for 'The Box!'

2.Literacy

I have attached a sheet called Spot the connecting Adverb. As in school, the sheets are starred 1, 2 and 3. Remember to challenge yourselves! Please copy the passages from your sheet into your green books for handwriting practice, if you have a pen in your packs then please use these.  Activity-Sheet-Spot-the-Connecting-Adverb.pdf

3.Numeracy

There is a fractions assessment below. I would like you to complete this, There are 12 questions and the answers are included. Please try to do this independently. This will enable you to see if there are any gaps in your knowledge. I know fractions can be daunting, but practice makes perfect (unless it is me trying to practice making Yorkshire Puddings, then this statement is not true!)  Year-5-Maths-Assessment-Fractions.pdf  

4.Topic

Have any of you thought about putting your sewing skills into practice? I know we had planned to do a fashion show for our creations, but how about mending a t-shirt with a hole in it? Or sewing on a button on your shirt? Ask an adult, they may have some sewing for you to do. If you don't have access to any sewing equipment, how about designing an outfit? We can stick this in your DT book when we return to school. 

Did anyone spot any interesting wildlife yesterday? Today how about trying some Harry Potter Yoga!  https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=R-BS87NTV5I

Good Morning Year 5! 

What a weekend I have had! A mouse has decided to take up residence behind my fridge. Boris (my cat) did catch it at one point then let him go. So we have been on a mouse hunt all weekend! I can't wait to see all your volcanoes. Lillie, my husband and I had such fun making mine. 

So as it is Monday, here is the Prodigy leader board for the weekend:

1. Elliemay 

2. Aimee 

3. Nevaeh  

So no change from Friday! I wonder what this week will bring.

Let's get on with this week’s tasks

1.Spellings. 

Please ask an adult/sibling to test you on your spellings and continue to keep a record in the back of your Green book, as you have been doing. Then we can reward all your hard work when we return. I have attached the spellings for you, labelled according to groups.  Y5-spellings.docx

2.Reading  

Please read for 20 minutes, do this on your sofa in your favourite spot, but remove any animals first.

3.Literacy

So moving on from summarising, we are now going to look at Cohesion. I have attached a power point presentation called 'cohesion within paragraphs'  Please read through this as preparation for the tasks tomorrow.  Lesson-Presentation-Cohesion-Within-Paragraphs.ppt

1.Reading 

Please complete today's LBQ task the code is: xpa

2.Catch up Friday! 

I know that it’s hard at home, fitting everything in, exercise, school, keeping your bedrooms tidy! 

So I thought it might be a good idea to have a 'Finish it Friday', just like when we are in class and sometimes we go through and check that we haven't got lots of unfinished work in our books.

Can you check the following and make sure you have completed the work set?

Education City - I have left all of this week’s tasks on there

Mathletics (only the tasks that I have asked you to complete, but more if you wish!)

The work set this week. All the plans are still here on the website.

Marking- Have you marked your sheets? 

Reading- Have recorded your reading? Are there gaps that you need to fill?

3.Junk Modelling!  (Completely Optional But great fun)

Remember that Junk I asked you to collect..... I thought it might be fun if we made our own models of a volcano.

You can go as elaborate or as simple as you like with this. I have attached some pictures for you, but there are plenty online! 

I would love to see them so when you are done you could email them to me (enquiries@dukeofbedford.peterborough.sch.uk) 

Mr Rigg and I will make one as well and share them with you on Monday!

4.The more adventurous 

https://www.wikihow.com/Make-a-Soda-Bottle-Volcano

Now if you want a challenge! Above is a link to how to make a volcano using fizzy pop! 

If you do not have access to any materials for modelling, how about drawing me a Volcano that is erupting. There are lots of wonderful pictures online to give you inspiration. 

Have a lovely weekend! I am going to paint my fence…and you thought teachers’ lives weren't exciting......

Wednesday 22nd April

Another gorgeous day! Yesterday I saw a few of you on my daily walk! It was so, so lovely to see your faces and it reminded me of how much I miss you all. 

I was also so happy to see how many of you completed the LBQ work yesterday. I knew lock down wouldn't be a problem for team 5! 

So here are today's tasks

1.Reading 

Please complete today's reading comprehension task on LBQ the code is: vfs

Please have a look online with an adult at the https://home.oxfordowl.co.uk/reading/reading-schemes-oxford-levels/  You can find free books to read and they have all the levels we use in school!

Don't forget to keep recording your reading, I can't wait to give out all the certificates and rewards when we are together again! 

2. Literacy/Topic

Today we will be again looking at summarising. Yesterday we looked at a video on the importance of a summary. Today I would like you to watch this video on Volcanoes. Watch it through once, then watch it again. I would then like you to summarise the video in your Green book. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=WgktM2luLok  Then could you read the summary to an adult/sibling. Then watch the video again together and get them to give you feedback on your summary.  You could always access yesterday's power point if you feel you need a recap. 

3. Numeracy

Please complete 10 mins of the PIXL timestables app.

I will set some more Mathletics and tasks on Education City for you too. 

I know we are excited to find out who is the leader of prodigy! I have just checked and 1st and 2nd place are neck and neck! 

4. French

Tuesday 21st April

Good Morning Year 5!

What glorious weather we have. I hope you’re making the most of it and getting some fresh air every day. 

Now I know we had some issues with Education City yesterday, but they should all be sorted now. Please keep letting me know if this is not the case. 

So here goes with today's tasks.....

1.Reading 

Please can you complete the LBQ Comprehension task labelled Tuesday Task 1.  The code today is yyt

20 mins quiet reading, why not do this outside if you can. 

2.Literacy

We are going to look at summarising information.   This is an important skill and will lead on to work that you do in preparation for your SATs in year 6.  Summarising means being able to take a large piece of writing or information and then retelling it in a shorter version. Can you think about when this may be useful?   Here is a video introducing the idea behind summarising https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=LbO3lRXT0ww

Then please look on Education City and complete the task labelled English Tuesday 21.4.20

3. Numeracy

Now our favourite! Decimals, fractions and we are not adding percentages!  Here is a video to get us started (it's quite catchy too!) https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=7vJUSpP74Zo

I have included a power point for you to go through as well. You will need this information to complete the worksheets tomorrow   Maths-Tuesday.ppt

4. Art

Could you design a poster that keeps children motivated to learn during this strange time? Maybe you could think of a catchy slogan such as ' Learning is fun, especially in the sun' I would love to see you display these in your windows. Please ask an adult before putting anything in a window!!!  I will look out for them on my daily walk with Lille! 

Don't forget to keep moving too, maybe make up a dance routine to your adults favourite song!

Monday 20th April

Hello Year 5!

Welcome to our new term, I know it feels a bit strange but I am certain we can do as well, if not better, than the end of last term.

Now, we have some bits to finish off from last term and that shouldn't take us long. We will be following the planning as if we were in school, but I will adapt it for home learning. I have also spent some time working out some areas that I feel we could do with spending a bit more time on. I thought it might be helpful if we use this time to cover some of the areas again.

Please also make sure you are looking on the homework section when finding the Education City tasks. 

Firstly this week the Prodigy Leader board is as below: 

 1.  Charlie L

2. Matthew J 

3. Danny F 

Daily Tasks 

Attached are your new weekly spellings. I have labelled them so you can clearly see your groups. Don't forget to add your personal words, up to five or more if you feel you want a challenge!

Could you tell me about your 'Easter Holiday’.   We know it is very different to any Easter Holiday you have ever had before! Did you manage to do any family activities? Did anyone have a home Easter Egg hunt? Did you read anything awesome? Did you watch anything amazing? 

Please use your green English working book for this piece of work.

3.    Numeracy. 

I have set some work on Education City that looks at Fractions and decimals again. Please complete these.  Then you can complete 2 Mathletics tasks.  I have also attached a times table test to complete. Remember, even if you feel confident it is always valuable to keep practising! They are your best friend after all. Can you time yourself? Then we will see if you can beat your score later in the week!  Times-Table-Challenge-Test-and-Answers.pdf

I have also placed some work on Education City looking at the alphabet in French! Bonne Chance!
