A reading comprehension has been set as Homework to complete ready for next Wednesday. Have a good weekend!
There are 2 pieces of maths homework to complete over the holidays. I have set a task on Manga High to have a go at and questions have gone home to prepare everyone for some work on subtraction after the holidays. Have a great break!
Year 5 have been working really hard trying to achieve our accelerated reader points targets in time for this Friday. Could you please return the accelerated reader sheets given out a few weeks ago so I can start to update them with new targets ready for next half term.
Everyone has a task to complete on MangaHigh this week. The children are coming home with a slip that contains all of the login details they need. Please complete this by next Wednesday.
On a sheet of A4 paper children will draw part of a chosen rainforest creature and use mark making techniques we have taught them in school to add detail. Close observation and attention to the finer details will be the key to success.
Note to parents
Before the children start the art task, lead them to watch a clip on youtube called “Austins Butterfly.” They have seen this in school but it’s an excellent teaching tool and will do no harm to watch it again. This will help you in supporting your children.
First google “Layers of the rainforest” to find out about them prior to our lesson in school. Draw their own representation of them and label each layer. They can use materials to collage their picture or colouring pencils, water colours or just mark making. No felt pens please.
This project should be completed and handed in by Wednesday 5th May.
Our new topic for next term is ‘Rainforests’ so in preparation for this we are setting the children a mini project over the Easter holidays. Please produce a 5 page, A4 booklet about 5 animals that live in the rainforest. Each page should focus on 1 animal and should contain equal amounts of pictures and text.
Some of the information you could talk about includes what the animal eats, where abouts it lives, how it is adapted to the rainforest and what its characteristics are. This should be handed in on Wednesday 20th April. Please don’t copy and paste large chunks of text, write it in your own words.
Have a great Easter break!
Mrs Lody and Mr Lagdon
Due to many of the children having difficulties finding suitable resources with the homework set on Friday, we will work collaboratively on the task in the classroom.. Instead, they are to make an A4 poster explaining how to multiply numbers by 10 and 100 and divide numbers by 10 and 100. This is to be handed in on Monday 14th March.
The homework this week was to translate the Shakespearean words/phrases into Modern Day English. You may find the following website useful http://www.shakespeareswords.com/ .
Find the meaning of a minimum of 5 words by Wednesday.
This past week was well being week and we completed many activities as a class to help develop our mental, personal and emotional health. We also looked at e-safety to help us stay safe online and discussed how the way we treat others can contribute and impact on their well being.
We made ‘all about me’ posters to give the children a sense of identity and discussed the different aspects of encouragement and how this could be promoted in our classroom environment. As part of P4C this week we discussed what made us happy, why it was important for everyone to be happy and what we could do to help someone who wasn’t happy.
Over the holiday please use the following 2 websites to practise your times tables skills.
Have a great break!
