Friday 17th July 2020 - LAST DAY OF TERM

Oh my gosh, is it really the last day of term - the last day of online learning? You wouldn't think we have been doing this now for four months. 

Well done YOU for just getting the work done. Obviously those of you who were in on Monday and Tuesday finished your in class work on Tuesday and had immense fun with the origami work. Group 3 & 4 have yet to do that and I am looking forward to making a plague of frogs that I can use in RE next year!! 

For those of you who have been at home during the whole of this time, it must seem very strange being at home the whole time and not seeing your friends - although I am pretty sure that you've all been having video chats and getting together (social distancing of course) and saying hello. Whether you have had Mrs Wynne or myself during the week or been at home and been emailing both Mrs Wynne and I, it has been lovely to hear from you or see you,  we are immensely proud of you all. Your efforts this year have been amazing and in one way or another, you have achieved a great deal both on a personal  and academic level. Remember little steps always lead to somewhere. Everest is never climbed in big steps but small carefully executed steps.  No doubt you need the rest now with the summer holidays around the corner, you have been working tremendously hard on ALL your online work, so thank you! I hope that you have had fun designing your Avatars, making bread, making cakes, painting, researching, having obstacle races and generally taking responsibility for your own learning. 

We both wish you ALL a very happy, fun and safe summer break. You are all ready for what year 6 has in store and have nothing to worry about. Stay strong and be kind. 

Mrs Conner and Mrs Wynne

English - Just for fun, make up a poem all about YEAR 5 that is 6 verses long, each verse about one of the half terms in school this year. Make is a comical as you like or a poem that is full of memories and things you have enjoyed, Then email us your final piece of work, ALONG with an illustration to compliment your poetry!

 Maths:

Today’s task is a mystery!  Solve all the clues to find the answers.  I will put up the answer to the mystery on the blog on Saturday!    (I know, I know, the tennis was supposed to be last week, but Wimbledon is my home town...(Mrs W))   

 Then have a go at this fun game.   I managed to move the tower with three and four discs but five got me into a proper mess!  Can you beat me??

Wow!! It’s your couple of days in Year 5!  And what a bizarre year it has been!  But every one of you has managed to navigate this strangest of times with such amazing resilience and good humour.  We just want to say how immensely proud we are of you all.  For anyone who is worried about having missed anything this year, or is worried about moving up into Year 6, there is absolutely no need.  If you meet the challenges of Year 6 with anything like the amazing attitude you have shown us during Year 5 you will be absolutely fine!

Good Morning Year 5, 

For some of you this will be your LAST piece of online work and for the rest, it is only the beginning. As Mrs Wynne said on Monday, I can't quite believe that this is our last week and now this will be for some of you, your last piece of work. It has been such a pleasure having you all as 'OUR' gang, 'OUR' class, 'OUR' Year 5's. You have worked so hard over these past three months and and we can't tell you how proud we are of every single one of you. You have put the effort in when most would have given up. That is what makes you all such amazing human beings and boy, are we gonna miss that about you!!!

Anyway - lots of fun planned today. No writing actually, just pure fun!!! Enjoy!!

Mrs Conner and Mrs Wynne.

General Comments: Today MOST of your work is based around Raider’s Peril in English and Maths. If you have not realised that during the last 4 weeks, Mrs Wynne has been setting the Maths online work and I have been setting all the English. But today I have the pleasure of setting the maths too as it is ALL linked to the English work I have set over the past 3 weeks. We hope that the work has been okay and you have all been managing to access it and get through it or at least as much as you can. Please don't forget to take photos of your pizzas and send them in to me. Also a reminder that I need a photo of you all. Check parent mail!

Best wishes Mrs Conner and Mrs Wynne

Reading – Do you know how to skim read? It is where to have already read a text and kind of know what it is all about but you need to refresh your memory by skimming over the sentences just to make sure you understand it. Today I would like you to spend no more than 15 mins skimming all the chapters of Raider’s Peril. Your writing task will be based on this. Chapter 1-3, Chapter 4-6, Chapter 7-9, Chapter 10-13

Writing – Book Review – Write a book review about Raider’s Peril using specific detail taken from the text to support your opinions and to help justify why you think it is or isn’t a book worth reading. I would like you to think very carefully about HOW you will write this book review. I want you to do this on Purple Mash -  a template has been set up already for you with instructions. When I mark it I may reset it if I feel the work is not enough!

SCIENCE: Two activities

We have been having so much fun in science over the past few months especially with all the experiments. We have been looking at properties of material and how they change when mixed, heated up and filled with air etc. Today, or over the next week I would like you to make a pizza. The challenge is to make a family lunch or dinner. It is based on the book we have been reading in our Online Learning. This is titled Raider’s Peril Awesome Pizza . You will need to write down the ingredients and how much you think you’ll need. The worksheet has all the information.

When you have finished that I would like you to write a short script that could be used as an advertisement on the television to promote your FABULOUS pizza. Again, the worksheet explains it all. This activity is NOT supposed to be a long piece of work. However, as we are NOT doing RE, this activity will take its place. Make the Raiders Peril Awesome Pizza CLICK HERE and draw up a SCRIPT for it CLICK HERE (If you have an easier or alternative pizza recipe – then please feel free to use that).

General Comments:

Hi Year 5!  Hope you are all feeling ok?  There's definitely a change in the air this weather this half of the week, so please remember your jumpers for the mornings.  Quite a few of you are coming into class saying you are tired.  I think the really hot weather last week disrupted quite a few of us too - it's hard to sleep in really hot weather. But do try to get a good night's sleep now that the weather is cooler.  Also, remember that keeping hydrated will help you to stay alert, so please do not forget your water and your snack!  I (Mrs Conner) will be giving you some weekend reading -  to finish off the last two chapters of the book we have been reading these past few weeks. Reason being is that next week you will have a sightly different format for your online learning.

Mid week everybody. The work today is full of fun and madness. Hope you all enjoy giving it a good go. Make sure if you are asked to pop it online, you do. It counts as evidence of the work you are doing. We have seen some amazing work over the last 100 days, yup that's right, one hundred days since lock down. Anyway, enough from me and enjoy your Maths and English Free day of work whilst we concentrate on the other subjects.

RE: Last week you wrote down how you would celebrate Creation. I had some lovely work sent through in the year 5 email, although I haven’t seen everybody’s efforts…yet!

As mentioned last week, I now want you to use your work to create a piece of drama, either through acting, or through puppet show. A puppet show may need a little more preparation as you will need make the ‘characters’ or different events  from your Creation story. If you like the concept of a comic flip book and you like drawing, you could do this instead.

Please then send me the completed version on the year 5 email. If you make a video, make sure it is not too long or too big a file to send.

Enjoy this project. You will be asked the following week to write up an evaluation.

 

SCIENCE: This week is all about having some fun with balloons. I want you to watch the You Tube clip on how to make a Balloon Rocket using some string, balloons, straws (or make your own using paper), tape and some glue.

https://youtu.be/r8BiJs4EfbIhttps://youtu.be/r8BiJs4EfbI

Your task is to have a Balloon Rocket Race with a couple of members of your family. Whose rocket will reach the finishing line? Will you go against gravity and have a string line ascending to the finish line or will you have it going downhill?

I want you to think of these factors when making your balloon rocket.

  1. What size balloon will you use?
  2. What shape will it be – long balloon, round balloon?
  3. How long will you cut the straw that you attach to the balloon? Will this make a difference to its performance?
  4. Do you have to have the 4 tiny triangular bits of paper stuck on the straw that is inserted to the balloon?
  5. Does the length of the race course make a difference?

I really want you to have fun with this, include other members of your house hold and have a laugh.

You MUST however follow up this fun activity NEXT week with a write up – so if you make notes this week or complete it this week, next week you will have less work to do. I do not want the follow up notes handed in until I ask for them.

Ps I have done this experiment in a staff meeting many years ago and as you can imagine, I had great fun. I tied my string between two chairs. You can do the same or use your imagination.

 

PSHE: This week I want us all to return to one of our early lessons in class. Watch this clip by Pink Floyd ‘Another Brick in the Wall’ https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=HrxX9TBj2zY

In class we watched this, discussed it and made up a wall of our own using words that you associated with yourself and what you wanted to achieve by the end of the year.

Today I would love for you to draw up a really detailed brick of how you see yourself now. Think about how you have changed, matured, overcome difficulties, made new friends, built friendship bridges, achieved goals you never thought possible and draw a brick that represents YOU. It can have one word or a few words that represent you. Ideally do this on a sheet of paper that is HALF the size of an A4 sheet (A5). I really DO WANT you to take a photo and send it to me. This can be done in whatever medium you like.

General Comments:

Hi Year 5!  Hope you are all feeling ok?  There's definitely a chill in the air this week, so please remember your jumpers.  Quite a few of you are coming into class saying you are tired.  I think the really hot weather last week disrupted quite a few of us too - it's hard to sleep in really hot weather. But do try to get a good night's sleep now that the weather is cooler.  Also, remember that keeping hydrated will help you to stay alert, so please do not forget your water and your snack!  For those of you who could access the correct questions for Chapter 10 and 11 yesterday, I have rectified the mistake. So If you go back to yesterday's writing, click on the chapter 10/11 blue and pink questions and you SHOULD get the right ones. Sorry I didn't spot it and thank you to those informed me. Doh!

Hi Year 5!  I hope you've all recovered from the absolute drenching we have all had this week?!  It's going to be a bit cooler this week, so for those coming to school, don't forget to wear your jumpers or cardigans as you know how our classroom can feel a bit chilly sometimes.  

This week we have a really fun Russell School Art Challenge for you and your families to take part in.  The whole school is joining in and I'm really excited about this as I think it's going to make a really brilliant display and all the staff are going to join in too! 

Remember this week we are also welcoming back the Year 3 and Year 4 children, so our timings for the running track/outdoor classroom will change slightly, but don't worry - you will still get a chance to run.  Remember to wear your trainers to school so that you don't have to change your shoes.  Please also remember to bring in a snack and a bottle of water as some of you are forgetting!

Both of us were extremely impressed with the work that you competed last week and commend you on your hard work and efforts. For those of you who returned to school – well done for doing it so well and with such a positive enthusiasm. We were very pleased to see you all and really hoped you enjoyed being back in our classroom. You seem to be coping really well with the split learning – online and in class.

For those who are not returning into school, please continue to work through the online work. If you manage to do or make any other addition things or learn something outside our instruction, we would very much love you to email some photos of your achievements.

First have a look at this powerpoint

Next, look at this work sheet containing different shapes and a sorting grid.  If you can print out the shapes, cut them out and arrange them on this second sheet, sorting them into the correct boxes. If you can't print them out, then carefully draw out the sorting grid using a ruler and draw the shapes into the correct part of the grid.

Foundation Subjects:

Art/Design Technology

This week we are continuing with our William Morris topic and we are going to look at how William Morris’ workshop produced their prints. 

Have a look at this power-point first.

Now have a look at this workshop in India.  Here they make hand-carved printing blocks using methods that would have been very similar to the methods used in William Morris’s workshop. 

Then have a look at this page – you don’t need to read it all, just look at the pictures of William Morris’ designs and then scroll down to the bottom of the page to watch the video showing how wall paper is hand printed, using the same system that Morris’ workshop used all those years ago!

This is a very old (and funny!) video explaining how different types of wallpaper were made in the 1960’s.  Somewhere near the start you can see how the blocks are often carved nowadays but in the old days they used to carve all the blocks by hand, and you can see someone working on an old Morris block. 

 Your task is to make a comic strip using the template here to show the step by step process of making wallpaper from the first drawing all the way through to completion.  You need to include drawing from life, designing the wallpaper, carving the block and the printing processes.  Use the speech bubbles to explain the process.   Have fun!

Good morning Everybody. Half way through the week and today is gonna be a scorcher! Make sure you wear sunscreen and a hat if you are doing any sport outside. Some of you have told us how you like to go for an early morning run...or walk the dog, so please take some water with you. Today in PSHE you will need the help of your family, no baking today (I hear the sigh of relief from some of you) even though you did such an AWESOME job last week. Mrs Conner

RE: How would you celebrate Creation? Think about the ways in which you would/could celebrate the creation of the world. I would like you to write down in you books or on the computer written description using your own ideas and own beliefs to create an imaginative world and culture, complete with customs and traditions. Everything on your world matters!

Next week we will use what you have written to do some drama/acting by presenting your work as a puppet show or dramatic performance. So keep this in mind.

 

 

SCIENCE: Reversible and irreversible changes

Copy and fill in the missing words from the text. All the answers are on the BBCBitesize website. Watch all three videos and complete all three activities BEFORE copying the work down into your books. https://www.bbc.co.uk/bitesize/articles/z4vc86f

Irreversible changes

A change is called irreversible if it cannot be changed back again.

In an irreversible change, new materials are always formed. Sometimes these new materials are useful to us.

Heating

Heating can cause an ……………. change. For example you heat a raw egg to cook it. The cooked egg …………………be changed back to a ………… egg again.

Mixing

Mixing ……………………. can cause an irreversible change. For example, when ………………….. and …………………….of ………. are mixed, the mixture changes and lots of bubbles of ……………………. are made. These bubbles and the liquid mixture left behind  …………………… be turned back into vinegar and bicarbonate of soda again.

Burning

Burning is an example of an ………………… change. When you burn wood you get ash and smoke. You cannot change the ash and smoke back to ………………………. again.

 

 

PSHE: For this task you will need to become a reporter. Your job is to interview the different members of your family, or to call up any relatives over the phone and find out what their ‘Lockdown’ experience has been like. I want you then to put it all together and do a little write up. Last week you made up the comic strip about YOU, This week I want you to think of others around you. This is more of an opportunity for your family to open up an feel good about themselves. Try and focus on the positive things and how these carried the mood when things may have been difficult. It is entirely up to you what questions you ask. But remember everybody’s experience will be different. No right, no wrong so be kind!

Thank you to all of you who have given the Challah Bread a go. The photos are amazing and they all look so scrummy and yummy to eat. Remember that a little bit of a write can be done if you wan to extend your learning. I also appreciate that not everyone is on a position to do some baking  - so please don't panic.

Recap work:

 Can you think of all the places that you would normally see Roman numerals being used in daily life?

I can think of four: on analogue clock faces you sometimes see Roman numerals being used; some house numbers are written in Roman numerals; we use Roman numerals with royal titles – eg: Queen Elizabeth II or King Edward VII and traditionally in the film industry, where Roman numerals are used to show the date the film was made. 

  and this one?  

 Can you match up these films with their correct dates?


Complete the questions below on Roman Dates. Write out the answers in your book by completing the sentences and write the dates in Roman numerals and numbers.

 Why do you think some years need more numerals than others? Can you explain?

 In the last 20 years, including this one, which year uses the most Roman numeral symbols? Why is this?

Maths:

Starter activity:

MyMaths  https://app.mymaths.co.uk/1723-homework/roman-numerals

Last week we looked at Roman numerals up to 100.  This week we are also adding in two more: D = 500 and M = 1000

Copy this into your books to help you think about how we break down the symbols.

If we carry on this system with C, D and M, we can have:

90 = XC = ten-before-one-hundred

110 = CX = ten-after-one-hundred

400 = CD = one-hundred-before-five-hundred

600= DC = one-hundred-after-five-hundred.

What will 900 and 1100 be?

 

Look at the number DXCIV and break it down. 

We know that D=500 and X=10, but remember that the X relates to C and I relates to V

 D=500, XC= 90 IV= 4 , so DXCIV = 594. 

 Practice converting Roman numerals into numbers with these tasks:

This week we are continuing with our William Morris topic and we are going to explore the ideas of the Arts and Crafts movement with a little experiment.  First of all, have a look at these slides.

You are now going to pretend that you are working in a factory producing paper bear puppets.  (If we were in school I would have given you some split pins to make moving parts, but here we will just use glue)

As you may remember from our History lessons, this is just the kind of job that many Victorian children may have been given in a factory.  They would have had to work hard to produce their work quickly because they would have been paid according to how many pictures they completed in a day. Probably something like 5 completed puppets would have earned them a penny (about 40p in today’s money) However, if the work was of ‘shoddy’ standard, and not put together properly, it would not have been able to have been sold and the children would have had their wages docked for wasting resources.  So, imagine you are working in a factory: you have three minutes to cut out and make your bear! 

You will need to print this template twice.  If you can't print it, then you can use the template to copy from to make your own.  Remember not to start cutting out until you have started timing!  

 

How does it look? Is it of good enough standard do you think?  The factory inspector would have been looking at the quality of your cutting out and how well you have decorated your bear too.   Would you have got the sack from your factory?

Now imagine you are in a Craft workshop run by William Morris.  This time, you will have longer to complete second bear – 15 minutes.  This time the focus is about how well you colour it in, as well as how well you cut it out.  You should also have time to put a face on your bear and maybe give her or him a character.  Remember that you won’t be able to make as many bears in a day with 15 minutes per bear, but what do you think the advantages might be?

Do you think your second bear is better? Would you be able to sell it at a higher price?

Glue your two bears into your book and write a paragraph explaining each one. 

So, the key words today have been Quality and Quantity.  Write a paragraph explaining which you think is better and why. Explain whether you agree with William Morris and describe what the advantages and disadvantages of factory-made products are.  How do you think a factory worker would have felt?

Good morning wonderful Year 5. 

We hope that you are all doing well and enjoying the work we have been setting. For today's RE/Science you will need some yeast!!! Eeek - let's hope you can find some if not do this activity when you do.

Mrs Conner and Mrs Wynne

Foundation subjects

RE: During your RE lesson last week, you will have watched the BBC video on Shabbat. Having a meal with the family is very important and marking the end of the week is even more so. It recognises the hard work that has been done especially with regards to God and The Creation Story. The 7th Day, the day of rest is fundamental in a Jewish home. One of the foods eaten is the Challah Bread. Below there are three recipes. One is how to make a Challah bread and the other is how to make an easy loaf of bread. The last one is how to make salt dough. Dependant on what you have in the kitchen cupboards and whether or not a trip to the shops is required (sorry mums and dads), I would love to you to try and make a plaited loaf just like the ones used at the Shabbat meal in a Jewish home.

Now I appreciate not all of us are bakers and might find this a little tough, so there is also a simple salt dough recipe you can use instead BUT you will not be able to eat this. I want you to try and plait your dough. If you cannot plait, then twist. As you make this, try and think about what you have learned so far. All the hard work goes into making the bread but the reward is sharing it at the meal. As this is quite a complex task and time consuming, I will link your SCIENCE into this lesson. See Below

Making simple Challah Bread. https://www.lifeasastrawberry.com/simplechallah-bread/#anchor

Making simple bread https://rainydaymum.co.uk/easy-bread-dough-cooking-with-kids/

Making salt dough https://www.yummytoddlerfood.com/activities/the-best-salt-dough-ornaments/

SCIENCE LINK – having looked at properties of materials and also what changes occur to solids and liquids when they are heated, I want you to look at the change in consistency of the dough as you add the different ingredients together. Make notes and maybe take photos to show the changing process esp. if you are making the bread and having to PROVE it. Think about which ingredients make the dough change (what change is happening) and why we want this process to happen? Enjoy!!

 

PSHE: Design a storyboard about how you have changed, coped, handled your time in lockdown. It can be all pictures, pictures with some captions or pictures with key words or feelings. Below is an example of a Pixar Story board – obviously I do not want to see Mr Potato Head in your drawings, but it gives you an idea. Each box can be a different day or represent a different week. You will have changed and become a slightly different person. None of us, including me are the same. Maybe you might like to include something you have learnt through lockdown – for me it would be to appreciate the smallest of things, like a hug or a cuddle. It could even be something like learning how to understand things better because you have had more time as a family to share experiences. What ever you choose, it will be personal to you. Then Load it up and send it to me.

Recap work:

 Can you think of all the places that you would normally see Roman numerals being used in daily life?

I can think of four: on analogue clock faces you sometimes see Roman numerals being used; some house numbers are written in Roman numerals; we use Roman numerals with royal titles – eg: Queen Elizabeth II or King Edward VII and traditionally in the film industry, where Roman numerals are used to show the date the film was made. 

  and this one?  

 Can you match up these films with their correct dates?


Complete the questions below on Roman Dates. Write out the answers in your book by completing the sentences and write the dates in Roman numerals and numbers.

 Why do you think some years need more numerals than others? Can you explain?

 In the last 20 years, including this one, which year uses the most Roman numeral symbols? Why is this?

What will 900 and 1100 be?

 

Look at the number DXCIV and break it down. 

We know that D=500 and X=10, but remember that the X relates to C and I relates to V

Happy Wednesday Everybody! Today you will be drawing on what you have been reading over the past few days from the book Raiders Peril. I appreciate that for some of you, you may have whizzed through the first 3 chapters, which is fantastic, however I also appreciate that some of us just need a little more time to digest information. So if you happen to finished the given text in a matter of minutes, please feel free to read a book of your own. Whatever reading you do, is always good reading. Fingers crossed the work related to the book goes to plan and hopefully this week all the links work for the worksheets and pages you require.

Today I would like you to write down how you think the world created. You can use a mix of possible explanations, possibly sharing some of the beliefs of different faiths, maybe just your own faith or maybe you only want to go down the scientific route. However, as this RE, you must think about why there ARE creation stories in different religions. Please wrote it down in your books and use the space around your writing to draw suitable symbols or drawings that relate to what you believe. There is no wrong or right answer, this is personal and a reflection of your own thoughts.

Writing – “Meet the Rhi-swano-zeb-tah”   https://www.talk4writing.co.uk/wp-content/uploads/2020/04/Y5-Maria-Rhi.pdf

Today you will work on some sentence imitation, working through the booklet from page 16 to page 18.  You will be creating some adverb starters and giving your readers some juicy facts and adding on facts using sentence signposts such as additionally, in addition to, also, furthermore and moreover.

You can really let your imagination go wild with this one – try and think of some really funny and crazy things that your creature might do!

Spelling – Purple Mash spelling Quiz, set as a 2Do - Aut1Wk6Quiz D3

 

 Reading - Reading "Raider's Peril"  for 15 minutes

 

Maths:

 

Can you remember what  each of these Roman Numerals is worth and put them in order from smallest to largest?

 

 Look through this powerpoint to remind you and answer the questions. 

 

That’s right – I = 1, V=5, X=10, L=50 and C=100

 

Now please write out 1-20 in a list, with the roman numeral equivalent next to it, eg:

1 – I

2 – II

Remember that there should not be any more than three of one symbol in a row. 

Remember also, that 4 and 9 are written as ‘1 before 5’ and ‘1 before 10’.  The same is true for 40, 90, 400 and 900. 

 What did you write for 3? What did you write for 4? Explain why. 

Can you work out how to write 40, 90, 400 and 900 in Roman Numerals?

 Next, try writing these numbers: 23, 39, 44. 68 and 79

 Can you think of a number which uses 2 V’s in a row? Can you explain your answer?

 Now work out the numbers and colour in the correct squares on this sheet to reveal the mosaic picture.  (You can draw a grid of 9X10 squares if you don’t want to print off the sheet)

General Comments:

Hello Year 5!  I hope you had an enjoyable weekend? I couldn’t believe the crazy weather we had!  But I did get to see some little bluetits fledging from their nests this weekend so that made up for it.  Today’s English task is a grammar task, which will be supported by the SPAG test so do that first, so that it helps you to do the Writing task.  We are writing out a school timetable in Maths today, and in Art you will be doing some more work on William Morris.    

 English:

  • Grammar - SPAG.com – Parentheses and Commas (B).

 

  1. Writing – “Meet the Rhi-swano-zeb-tah” https://www.talk4writing.co.uk/wp-content/uploads/2020/04/Y5-Maria-Rhi.pdf

 Today you have a grammar task to do – hopefully the SPAG work you have done will have got you prepared for it and reminded you what to do.  Work your way through page 15 and halfway through page 16 and stop when you get to “Let’s do some sentence imitation” – we will do that tomorrow. 

  • Writing - https://www.pobble365.com/the-old-railroad  use the starter to create a three paragraph story based on the photograph.  For an extra challenge, complete the sentence challenge too - you've been doing lots of work with brackets, so you should find it quite simple to do.

Today you will be filling in your own school timetable using the clues given to you.  Download the timetable and clue and question sheets here

 Have a look at the timetable first – what do you notice about it?

 You can see that not all the session are the same – some are only 15 minutes long, some are an hour long.  First you need to go through the clues and fill in the information that is the same for every day, for example, registration and breaktime.  What else is the same every day?

Read through all the clues carefully and take your time to fill in the timetable.  You may want to fill it in in pencil first.

This week we are continuing with our William Morris topic and today I would like you to make a drawing of one of his fabric patterns.  I would first of all like you to carefully draw a square measuring 15cm x 15cm – this will be the size of your drawing. 

You can choose whichever one of these you prefer to copy, or you can choose a different design by William Morris.  Some of them are quite complicated, so you can simplify them if you wish.  For example, in the top design, I would leave out all the background shapes behind the bird’s legs and around the leaves just below them, and just concentrate on the main features of the birds and the main flowers. 

Begin by first sketching out the whole design very lightly in pencil.  You should be drawing so faintly that I wouldn’t be able to see it if I was looking over your shoulder!  That way, if you make a mistake, it will be easy for you to rub them out after you have drawn it correctly.  A good way to check if your picture looks right is to hold it up to a mirror with the picture you are copying from.  You can also turn both your drawing and the picture upside down and copy that way, so that you are just looking at shapes.  Once you are happy with your outline sketch then you can colour in your drawings using coloured pencil please.  Remember you need to press hard with your colouring pencils to get a nice rich colour and remember to use small marks.  Fill in all the gaps so that you can’t see any of the white page (unless it's part of the design, like the one at the bottom).  Good luck!

General Comments:  Very excited about some of the English work that we are going to start. What I need you to do is begin reading a text in your ‘reading’ time. So instead of reading 15mins of your own book, I would like you to begin reading Raiders Peril. All you need to do is MAKE sure you have read the first 3 chapters BEFORE next Wednesday. There are 36 pages to read so I am setting the reading task NOW. That gives you 5 days to complete the first three chapters. We all read at different speeds, so make sure you use the time wisely. We will be reading 3 chapters each week, if not more. It is all to help build up your comprehension skills and ready for Year 6. You are expected to read a text and extract information. Good Luck!!

General Comments:  Hello Year 5, With yesterdays work some of you may have had trouble accessing the Maths and RE work. Firstly with the Maths you need to make sure that you play the PowerPoint in order for the hyperlink to work from the last slide. If you are unable to access Word documents, I will save them as PDF files. You should, hopefully be able to access them then. As for the RE, I will create another link for you to access....hopefully THIS will work. Thank you for your patience and understanding.

Ever wondered what it would be like to be a TENNIS ball?

Story starter!

She gripped me tightly in her fingers. I could tell exactly what was about to happen…

Without warning, I felt myself being flung high into the air. For a moment it felt like I was flying as the wind rushed past me. I could see myself glowing a gloriously bright shade of yellow in the glistening sunshine as it poured down upon the court.

As I reached the pinnacle of my flight, I glanced down and saw her reaching up towards me with her racquet.

Then, it happened...

Everything blurred; my whole world went out of shape for an instant. I was hit by a wall of confusion and I felt totally disorientated. It wasn’t until I sailed over the top of the net that I came to my senses and realised what had happened...

Science - Do I know how to identify groups of materials?

  • In today’s lesson I want you to think about all the objects around you and look at WHAT they are made of. What is their purpose? You may recall a previous lesson on identifying properties of materials, this may help jog your memory about the different types of materials we have.
  • I want you to collect, compare and group together everyday objects from around your house on the basis of their properties, including their hardness, solubility (ability to be dissolved), transparency (able to see through it), conductivity (allow electrical and thermal energy) and response to magnets. Take photos of your collection.
  • Then I want you to write down all the objects in the chosen categories (as above or of your own choice) and write down their functions and what they are made of.
  • This can be done either in your books or on a PowerPoint presentation.
  • Then I want you to answer the question - HOW does the material it is made of help the ‘function’ of the object?

General Comments: Hello EVERYBODY, as Mrs Wynne said, I hope you all had a wonderful work free week over the half term and ready to continue your learning this week. The weather has been lovely and certainly made going outside a much nicer experience. I've never walked so much in my life :-)

Grammar Sentence challenge!

Can you add adverbs to my sentences below to make them better?

The girl was frightened. ______, she looked around at the surrounding forest. She began to walk ________ along the path, pausing________ to take a sip of water from her canteen.

From the distance ahead, she heard a scream. The sound echoed ________ through the forest.

 

Can you use adverbs in your own writing today?

 

Writing LOST  - Pobble 365 https://www.pobble365.com/lost. This picture actually reminds me of Lord of the Rings – maybe if you want to do an extra piece of writing, you might like to read an extract from the book and write your own part of the story.

Story starter!

Hours and hours had passed, and she hadn’t seen a soul. The monotony of trudging through this seemingly never-ending labyrinth was tiring, and her eyelids felt heavy. The heady scent of the pine sap and earthy moss added to her lethargic state. She felt as if she could close her eyes and sleep for a thousand years. She knew she couldn’t though; being trapped in the woods when night fell wouldn't be a wise move. Making the most of the remaining daylight would be crucial, she knew.

A great sense of foreboding filled her, and she had a tight feeling in her chest. The trees around her, like sentinels protecting the gods of the forest, seemed to bear down upon her. The dense army of pine trees threatened her from every side. There was only one path forward, and she took it hesitantly, not knowing what awaited her in the distance…

 

Spelling Using the Year5/6 common exception words from the word mat, copy out and practice the spellings for the letter A, B and C. Write them in your book as a list then do LOOK, COPY, COVER & WRITE, CHECK with them. So you will have 3 columns. The first where you have written the words down, the second where you have looked at the list and copied the words down and the third column where you have hidden the words and written them down from memory. It is MUCH easier to do one word as a time. You will learn them better. Take a mental photo of them. Spellings

General Comments:  Hello Year 5 and welcome back to home learning!!!  I hope you’ve had a lovely week off and enjoyed the sunshine? I'm sure you are all feeling refreshed and ready to get back to learning!     

Today we are continuing with our English Talk for Writing topic that we started before half term.  We are also continuing with timetables in Maths, starting with a refresher then moving on to more complicated work.   In today’s art lesson we will be looking at a Victorian artist and designer who based all of his work on the natural world and you can still buy his images today!  Have fun and remember I love seeing your work so please email them to me at the Year 5 address.

Because we are looking at the Victorians in History and have learnt a little bit about their lives, we are going to look at a Victorian designer who still influences textile design today.  His name is William Morris and he was a founder member of The Arts and Crafts Movement, a group of artists, designers and craftsmen and women who valued handmade craft above the mass-produced items made in factories.     

Have a look at this information sheet and then look at these slides and write a list of the similarities and differences that you see in William Morris’s designs. 

For your lesson today I would like you to make a fact sheet about William Morris.  You should include at least 10 items of information about him, what he did and what he was famous for.  I would also like you to include at least three images – one of him and two of his work.  For more information on William Morris, you can have a look at William Morris at the V&A, the William Morris Gallery and the William Morris Society, where you can look at pictures of his work and the kind of things his company made.  I'm looking forward to seeing your work!
