Happy half term year 5! smiley

 

I hope you all have a lovely break! 

 

Below is a little starting point for our next topic...The Mayans! 

 

Have a go at the KWL grid (What I know and what I'd like to know), then have a look at the videoword mat and creation story to give you a taster of The Mayans...

 

Enjoy! yes

If you weren't able to celebrate VE day, you could write a diary about one of your favourite 'Lockdown Days' so far! 

 

Also, see below for some updated maths, spellings and a PE challenge!

Hi Year 5!

 

I hope you all have had a lovely Easter and have been keeping safe and busy these last few weeks. I would love to see some of the things you have been up to, so please email me any photos and let me know if you are happy for me to share them on this class page for others to see too! smiley

 

I've updated our page below with some additional activities for you to complete should you wish over the next few weeks (called 'Maths part 2', 'SPaG activities' and 'Ancient Greece' - this term's topic!). I feel there are plenty of reading, writing and spelling activities for you do on here already and so revisit those as and when you need to - or think of your own! yes

 

Don't hesitate to contact me if you'd like something more specific...I'm here to help and only an email away! 

 

Take care, keep safe and enjoy that lovely sunshine while it is here!

Hi Year 5!                                                                                                   Monday 23rd March

 

I really missed your faces last week! Well done for being great for your covering teachers and I hope you enjoyed the activities I prepared and sent in for you each day smiley

 

 Now is a strange time for us all, especially for your parents who will be trying their best to keep you safe, entertained and learning - as well as lots of important adult jobs they will be doing too like working, paying bills and jobs around the house - so please be kind to them and help them out as much as you can! They will really appreciate it and it will mean they are happier and might have more time to spend with you too heart

 

Hopefully you received a pack of activities to keep you going for a few days. A little each day, when you can is fine. Just do what you can, we understand it will be harder for some, but we can all try to keep our brains working - you have all worked so hard this year to learn many new things, so let's keep that going! There are new activities and resources on here for you to access when you need it over the coming weeks (see below). The weather is also beautiful at the moment, so get lots of fresh air in your gardens/outdoors and feel free to do other learning activities you've found out about too! I look forward to seeing what you've been up to, so save any special work you are proud of or take photos if you can!

 

Keep safe & be good! yes

 

Miss Todd 

 

P.s - Many of the activities attached below will have answers with them. Try not to be tempted to look until afterwards to see how successful you have been and what you need to improve on. I will also attach some other work to do too if you happen to find these a bit tricky (as we are only half way through Year 5, we do not expect you to know how to do everything so don't worry!).

 

natalie.todd@navenby.lincs.sch.uk

Here is a guide to our Year 5 daily time table if it helps structure your day... (Twinkl also has a daily timetable of activities you can follow too if you feel you need it!) I've put some recommended timings on there which are different to our school day but are just a suggestion - some days or activities might not go to plan so don't worry!  And make sure you factor in some well-needed family time too... smiley

 

  • Reading (10 - 20 mins)
  • Maths (30 - 45 mins)

Break

  • Writing and/or Spelling, Grammar & punctuation  (30 - 45 mins)

Lunch

  • Spellings (10 - 15 mins)
  • Topic/Science - Space & the solar system (30 mins)

  • PE/outdoor learning or Art & crafts (30 mins) 

ONLINE RESOURCES

 

MATHLETICS - You should all know your log ins, but if for any reason you have forgotten just send me an email. I am just waiting to receive my log in (which is currently at school) so I can open up all the areas for you. In the meantime, access what you can and enjoy some LIVE! Mathletics too!

 

PURPLEMASH - Again, you should all have log ins. Email me if forgotten/lost. This online resource has a bit of everything! 

 

TOPMARKS - free online games and activities for every topic. We often do the 'Daily 10' (maths) in class. Speed Challenge and Hit the Button - are good for mental maths challenges such as times tables, addition, subtraction and division too!

Homework

 

We all know how sometimes we can find ourselves just itching to extend our learning further when we're not at school, so to make it that little bit easier Year 5's are assigned homework each week (out on a Friday and in on a Wednesday).  This will primarily be an English or Maths task but may also take the form of research or an extended project based around our Topics.  It is also great to see the children taking learning in to their own hands and we love sharing work brought in to school that the children have felt inspired to do in their own time at home too.

 

 Any additional free time can be spent completing fun activities on Mathletics, Spellodrome and Purple Mash - children all have their own log ins which can be found in their homework books.
