WEEK BEGINNING 13th JULY

Hello Year 5, 

It is the final week of the Summer Term and it is a real shame that we couldn’t spend it together. The most important thing though is that you are all safe. You have a brilliant year to look forward to next year in year 6!

You have been a fantastic year group throughout the year and we wish you a fun, safe and happy summer holiday.

Make sure you keep reading for pleasure over the summer holiday period. It wouldn’t hurt to continue doing AR quizzes too! That would be brilliant.

Take care of yourselves and your family and we look forward to seeing you all around the school in September.

Mr Goble, Mrs Roberts and Mr Carter

LEARNING FROM HOME LINKS – THESE HAVE BEEN EMAILED TO ALL PARENTS TO HELP DURING THE SCHOOL CLOSURES

Self learning at home 5&6

Home Learning – Year 5

Hi all Year 5 children, family and carers. Firstly, I hope this message finds you all safe and in good health. In these crazy and challenging times this is the number one priority for us all so I hope you are taking all the necessary precautions to look after yourselves and everyone else. Speaking personally, I am missing you all (even you Brodyn!) and look forward to the day we can all meet up again. 
As you will have seen, staff are now putting up activities throughout the week to help with home learning. There are arguably many benefits for keeping the brain ticking over whilst we are all out of school. As well as the obvious benefit to the children’s learning, the added structure to the day can help alleviate boredom (that’s right children, you CAN actually get bored of playing computer games and watching TV)(remember, this is just week 2!).
However, the last thing we want to do in these challenging times is to add any more stress to anyone’s daily life. Bearing that in mind, I would go on to echo the sentiments of some of my colleagues on here and would recommend short, sharp activities and mornings only. Use the websites listed (White Rose for Maths does exactly what you need). Don’t feel like you always have to produce something written, be creative and never ignore the power of a good discussion. Look for opportunities to make it fun (Hot Wheels Maths for me and my boys this morning, awesome, complete with metal soundtrack (Flint and James  lml)). And what about those practical life skills you could spend some time learning (and passing on to me when we get back in, haha!).
Anyway, whatever you do will be great. Step away if needs be. We are all supposed to be looking after ourselves and each other, that is everyone’s number 1 homework task. Keep it up!

EASTER ACTIVITIES

Hello Year 5 children, parents and carers. Happy Easter, it’s the holidays!(??) As you will have seen via the school email, we are not going to be setting the (new) standard work for children to do over the next 2 weeks. Instead, there are a number of links to different types of activities which will hopefully be fun and keep you occupied in between scoffing all those Easter eggs (I’m looking at you Issy B).

These aren’t normal times, we know, so we thought you might like a couple more ideas for how to occupy your time. 

Our Summer topics will include looking at coasts. Below are 3 pictures of Durdle Door, all slightly different. Our challenge for you is to re-create your own version(s) using any media you can get your hands on (check with an adult first). You could recreate one of these images or find another that you prefer via Google images. Depending on what you can find, you could use pencils, felt tips, paints, chopped up pieces of recycled stuff (cereal boxes, etc) and you could do more than one picture to compare the effects of using different media.

Questions to consider when creating your masterpiece might include:

Q. How can I represent the rocky textures of the arch itself?

Q. How will I create an area of water that is not just a single block of the colour blue? Can I represent the movement of the tide?

Q. How can I make my sky look different to the sea (other than just using a different shade of blue)?

Q. How will I create a pebble effect on the beach?

This short clip may help to inspire you (along with some chilled music – you know how I like the chilled music when we’re doing art (it almost drowns Kayden’s commentary out)(almost)).

SCIENCE

Science – Our Solar System

Hello. It’s my task to produce 2 tasks a week related to our topics. Here’s a bunch of ideas linked to our current Science topic. Feel free to dip in and do what you feel is going to really interest you. The YouTube clip is arguably the one thing that everyone needs to see as it gives you the background information you need. Beyond that, it’s totally up to you! SC

This week you are going to learn about night and day here on Earth.
Ever wondered why the sun seems to move across our sky? Ever wondered where it goes at night?
Watch the following clip to find out: 

Use the following website to work out where day and night is currently happening on Earth.

https://www.timeanddate.com/worldclock/sunearth.html

Can you list 5 countries currently enjoying daylight?
Can you list 5 countries currently experiencing night?
Gold level: Who is enjoying breakfast, lunchtime, dinnertime? Who is heading to bed?

This is an easy to make sundial. Research what a sundial is, who invented it and how it was used.

You can make your own. If you don’t have a paper plate, why not cut a circle out of the side of a (used) cereal box?
You may decide to create a bigger sundial in the garden. What could you stick up in your garden that could do the job of the pencil in this example?
You could trace the changing shadow over the course of the day. How will you mark it? How often?
You could repeat this on another day and compare your results.

EXTENSION ACTIVITIES
Take a look at this picture. This is called an Analemma.

Understand the Analemma and unlock the secrets of winter cycling.
What does it remind you of?
Can you research what this is?

You could present all your findings to your family, sharing these images and the sun tracker website.
The challenge is to do it without the You-Tube clip – how can you explain day and night?

 

HUMANITIES

Hello all! Just in case you’ve had enough fun, here’s some work you could do, haha!

Our topic this term has been the Tudors and Tudor England. As with the Science, you are free to watch the information clip and then choose an activity that suits you best. However, this list is not exhaustive and if you can think of something else to do based on this week’s topic, fire away! (You’ll see what I’ve done there when you read up/watch the clip.)(I mean, I could go on with the puns but it might prove to be a S-pain in the bum.)(You thought I’d stopped but Armada working than that.)(Stopping now, I promise…)

The Spanish Armada
Take a look at these pictures, all linked to today’s topic: The Spanish Armada.
Q. What can you see happening?
Q. What do you know about the Spanish Armada already?
Q. What would you like to find out?

Defeat of the Spanish Armada, 8 August 1588 - National Maritime Museum

Spanish Armada - Wikipedia

The Spanish Armada

Watch this clip to learn all about the Spanish Armada’s place in our history.

Activity Ideas
You could:
Use the first picture to describe the scene during the battle with the Spanish Armada. Which Y5 language features could you use? Could you write it as a poem? Could you write it as though you are a sailor on one of the ships?

Copy/print out a picture and use it to create an information poster about the story of the Spanish Armada. Key words, dates and numbers you could use as prompts for what to write about include: 1588, 130, 1559, pirates, Throckmorton, Netherlands, beacons, crescent, fire, Gravelines, wind (not that type of wind!), 67.

Re-tell the story using a Talk-for-Write storyboard (use the same prompts as noted above). Remember to use simple symbols for/and key words only.
Re-enact the story using toys or other objects and film it.

You will probably need to watch the clip more than once.
Remember, the choice of activity is completely yours so make sure you pick one that will make your work just plain sailing (you knew I couldn’t leave the puns unfinished). SC

ENGLISH

We will be uploading some daily English activites.  If they are worksheet based, the children could complete them verbally if working with a parent, or just by writing answers down on paper. A quick google search will bring up any help required in relation to vocabulary and aspects of grammar. 

Occasionally, there will be a variety of sheets based around the same topic; the sheets have stars at the bottom of each page. The stars represent the difficulty level. You should choose one sheet that you feel is approriate for your child; they can also help with these decisions based on their confidence level. The answers are at the bottom of each PDF.

Romeo, Romeo, Where For Art Thou Romeo?

This term, Year 5 have spent time studying different texts by the great William Shakespeare. Amongst the texts we have looked at have been ‘MacBeth’, ‘A Midsummer Night’s Dream’ and ‘Romeo and Juliet’.

As part of these studies, the children got to spend an exciting day rehearsing and putting on a Shakespeare play with the help of ‘Splat’, an outside theatre company. The children all thoroughly enjoyed their day and even got to perform to parents. (Pictures to follow)

Divorced, Beheaded, Died. Divorced, Beheaded, Survived.

Year five’s topic in Humanities this term is The Tudors. The children have enjoyed studying different aspects of this important era in our history. From battles to beheadings, plague to potatoes, the children will have studied a great deal on this era by the time the term is through.

Time to Hooke ’em out of School!

To re-enforce our studies on the Tudors, the children will be setting off for a 3 day residential at the end of term. Our trip to Hooke Court is sure to be a hit as it helps bring certain aspects of the topic to life in a way that just can’t be done in a simple classroom. Once the trip has been enjoyed, we will be sure to update you on just what went on.

Space: The Final Frontier

Rounding off our overview of this term’s subjects, our Science topic for the second half term is ‘The Earth and our Solar System’. The children will be getting the opportunity to find out some mind-blowing facts about the universe we live in. As part of our studies, the children will get the chance to study a wide variety of interesting sources, including some amazing video clips. If you do get inflicted with the insanely catchy ‘Planets Song’, I can only apologise (literally been stuck in my head for 2 months).

Great Start to the Year!

Year 5 have made a great start to the Autumn term. We’ve been really enjoying our current topic on the ancient Maya civilisation.

The children have produced some amazing writing based on traditional Maya stories. In Art, the children have worked to produce some stunning Maya masks for our display boards in school (look out for them on parent’s evening).

The children have also enjoyed the opportunity to produce some Maya maths, using the same methods and resources the Maya used themselves (stones, sticks and shells).

Take a look at some of our pictures!

 

This hasn’t been the only bit of Maths that has got the children active. We decided to test the theory of the Vitruvian Man too. Take a look at the children carrying out a measuring investigation.

What on Earth is going on here?

Answer: Yoga!

The children in Year 5 have been really lucky this half term to have an outside expert come in and teach them Yoga.

If an outside expert would like to come in and show me how to flip these images the right way round sometime soon, I think we’d all appreciate it!

Year 5 Trip

Thanks to all of you who took the time to come in for our quick meeting about this year’s residential trip.

Here is the kitlist for anyone whose dog got hungry and ate it.
