Year 5 Home Learning Timetable (2nd Summer Term Week 1 1/6/20)

Week beginning 1/6/20

Welcome back, Y5!

Hi everyone. We hope you've had a good break and done some fun things with your families even though this is a tough time for everybody. Fortunately, the weather has been great so you've had chance to enjoy the sunshine and some fresh air.

 

We're now only a short time away from starting Y6 so this is really a time to review and make sure you know all the things that you've been learning since September. That's why it's so important to make sure you're doing the lessons we set. They're designed to go over what you've done and to introduce new ideas to challenge you further. It goes without saying that you need to be reading every day too!

 

Please go to Google Classroom to find your timetable and the work for this week.

 

Please also keep up your exercise and continue helping out at home - these things help to keep us healthy, positive and appreciative of our families.

 

We miss you and we hope to see you soon. 

Stay well!

 

Mr Lurie and Ms Georgiou

28/5/20: Some of you sent us some fantastic South American masks last week. Well done - they're wonderful!

Week beginning 25/5/20

Hi Y5,

well done to all of you who have been working hard at the tasks we've set you. Lots of you are sending in work and we've been really impressed. This week,  you were asked to create story endings to Mr Lurie's own biographical story and special mention must go to Aiza and Saath who wrote amazing texts which created vivid images full of detail.

 

If you haven't done this work - or work from any week  - it doesn't mean you still can't do it - we'd love to see more autobiography work or anything else you're proud of.

 

There are quite a few people who haven't done their MyMaths work or who have tried it and not achieved 80%. Why not ask an adult or older sibling for help? You could also try the lesson that goes with the exercises. It's so important for you to make an attempt at this work. Even if you don't get 100%, your brainpower is boosted so much just by giving it a try.

 

We've set you a fun "naturewatch" project for the half-term holiday on Google Classroom, which will give you a chance to appreciate all the amazing wildlife around the area. Please also take the time to relax, enjoy the time with your family, and help out around the home.

 

We miss you lots and hope to see you soon,

 

Mr Lurie and Ms Georgiou

18/5/20: Well done for those of you who submitted your pictures of Brazilian landmarks last week. They're fantastic!

Hi Year 5,

We hope you're all well. We know this situation feels like it's taking forever, but hopefully things will soon start to get back to normal. In the meantime, it's so important to keep your brain and body stimulated  - that's why we suggest you do your Joe Wicks' exercises (or something as demanding) every day and that you keep up with your school work.

 

This week, how about a challenge - do something you haven't done before or weren't that keen on: origami, typing lessons (there are lots of free courses on the internet), painting, craftwork, helping your parents clean, learning how to bake, running - there are so many ways you could really stretch yourself.

 

If you haven't got a clue, ask us: we know you pretty well and could give you some great ideas of what you could do to stretch your brain or body!

 

Stay well and have a great week!

 

Ms Georgiou and Mr Lurie

Well done.....

to Shey, Deen and Brian for their excellent grammar and maths work this week. Shey and Saath have also written beautiful letters expressing how they feel about the current situation and their hopes for the future. It's wonderful to see how much care you've taken over your work. Keep it up!

Summer 1 - Week 4 - Week Beginning 11/5/20

 

Hi Y5,

It's been great talking to some of you and your parents over the last couple of weeks. It's also been lovely to see your work. Remember to keep sending us examples of anything you've done which you're proud of because of how much you challenged yourself. As well as work from our lessons, it could be a video of you playing a musical instrument or you doing burpees, a piece of art or Chinese calligraphy (see this week's Mandarin lesson), an amazing story or poem - in fact, anything you think we'd like to see.

 

Go to Google Classroom to see your work for this week. If there's anything you're not sure about, ask an adult to email the school or add a comment under the assignment.

 

We miss you and can't wait to see you again - we hope it'll be soon.

 

Ms Georgiou and Mr Lurie

Summer 1 Week 3

We are moving to Google Classroom!

 

Dear Year 5,

 

We hope you have had a safe, happy and productive week. 

 

Starting from next week, all materials/resources will be posted on Google Classroom. They will no longer be uploaded to the class page. 

 

Therefore, you will need to log onto Google Classroom to access everything you need in your home learning timetable. However, the home timetable will be uploaded to both the class page and Google Classroom each week.

 

From now on, only materials will be posted on Google Classrooms and not assignments. You will no longer be required to upload your own work.

 

If you are proud of your work and would like it to be seen by us, displayed on the class page, or seen by Ms Warhurst, feel free to email it to the Office, who will then forward it to us.

 

The advantage of accessing resources on Google Classroom is that you can make a comment to ask us questions about the work if you are unsure of anything. We will reply back to you as soon as possible. 

 

Some of you have already been using Google Classrooms to make comments about the work and it has been lovely to hear from you!

 

There is an IMPORTANT RULE for posting comments on Google Classroom: you must ONLY use the comments sections for work-related reasons. 

 

DO NOT use it as a chat forum. We are trusting you to be mature and responsible. 

 

Have a great weekend,

Miss Georgiou and Mr Lurie

Summer 1 Week 2

Hi everyone...

 

We've been getting some wonderful feedback from your parents about how much work you've been doing and how much effort you're putting into it - we're seeing excellent examples in emails and uploads. Please keep up this fantastic standard of work!

 

We've also been hearing how independent and grown-up some of you have been: getting ready to start at the same time every day and treating your work as seriously as when you're at school; putting 100% into your PE (you're going to be so fit when you get back to school!); demonstrating a grown-up attitude around the house; offering to help out at home; cooking and baking; and loads more examples that make us and your parents really proud. Well done!

 

Good luck with this week's work and please ask your parents to email us if you or they have any questions.

 

Thanks,

 

Mr Lurie and Ms Georgiou

Summer 1 Week 1

Hi everyone - welcome to the new summer term.

 

We hope that you and your families are well. It's been a strange few weeks and we're really missing you. We're not sure when we'll all see each other but until we do, please try to keep up with the work and exercise we've asked you to do. That way, you'll return to school full of energy and ready to learn.

Please ask your parents to get in touch with the school office if there's anything you don't understand, and remember to go to Google Classroom to check what we've asked you to do there.

 

Another thing we'd like you to do, which will help you to be more independent and resourceful, is to ask your parents for some regular chores you can do around the house. This would be a great help to them and the rest of your family, and will help you to feel a lot more responsible and grown-up.

 

Take care of yourselves and your families, and looking forward to seeing you soon,

 

Ms Georgiou and Mr Lurie

We hope you've managed to stay well during the last two weeks and that you've also been able to do the work we've set for you. If you haven't done as much as you should have, please try your hardest to catch up so that when you return back to school you'll feel confident and ready to reach the high standards you're capable of.

 

We've set an Easter holiday project for you, which you can see below. Please upload your report to Google Classroom if you can, because then we can really appreciate all your hard work.

 

Please remember, before you do any task, check the instructions and make sure you understand what you've been asked to do. When you finish, check back carefully to make sure you haven't made any silly mistakes and so that you can improve and edit your work, like we do in class.

 

This Easter, as well as doing your project, make sure you read every day, keep exercising and look after your families. Oh, and enjoy your easter eggs!

 

We hope to see you soon,

 

Mr Lurie and Ms Georgiou

Maths Assessment after February Half-term

 

On the first week back, there will be a maths assessment, based on the following objectives that were taught this half-term:

 

  • Adding and subtracting numbers mentally
  • Adding and subtracting whole numbers with more than 4 digits using columnar addition and subtraction

  • Solving addition and subtraction multi-step problems in contexts, deciding which operations to use and why

  • Using rounding to check answers to calculations and determine, in the context of a problem, levels of accuracy

  • Multiplying and dividing numbers mentally drawing upon known facts.

  • Multiplying and dividing whole numbers and those involving decimals by 10, 100 and 1000

  • Multiplying numbers up to 4 digits by a one or two digit number using a formal written method including long multiplication for two digit numbers

  • Dividing numbers up to 4 digits by a one digit number using the formal written method of short division and interpret remainders appropriately for the context.

  • Knowing and using the vocabulary of prime numbers, prime factors and composite (non-prime) numbers.

  • Establishing whether a number up to 100 is prime and recall prime numbers up to 19.

  • Problem solving involving all 4 operations in context of money and time.

  • Using all four operations to solve problems involving measure (for example, length, mass, volume, money) using decimal notation, including scaling.

  • Estimating volume [for example, using 1cm3 blocks to build cuboids (including cubes)] and capacity [for example, using water].

  • Converting between different units of measure (to include mm/cm/m/km; g/kg; ml/l). 

  • Knowing angles are measured in degrees: estimate and compare acute, obtuse, and reflex angles.

  • Drawing given angles, and measuring them in degrees (⁰)

 

What interesting ways can you revise/practise any of these objectives above? (MyMaths? Creating a poster or PowerPoint?)

Can you find real-life examples of any of them over half-term?

Y5 Viking Day - costume information

This year the UN Convention on the Rights of the Child has its 30th birthday. We think this is worth celebrating! We want to find out what life was like before the CRC was adopted by the UN in 1989. You will do this by talking to people that you already know who may have been children or even adults in 1989, such as your parents, grandparents, aunts, uncles or other trusted people in your community. Mrs Adem has put some prompt questions below to help you. You must interview a chosen adult and then bring your answers back to school by Monday 25th November. You can present your work anyway you choose to, such as; making a poster, PPT presentation, photographs, video or just written question and answers. We look forward to sharing your work with the rest of the class and the school.

Monday 14th October 2019 - Shakespeare Theatre Performance

 

Below are some photos taken during the Shakespeare Workshop that Years 5 & 6 watched today. We took part in a fantastic version of Romeo and Juliet, which we all really enjoyed. Even though the actors used the proper Shakespearean language, we were able to follow the whole story. If you look closely, you might even spot Romeo dressed as Spiderman! It's Romeo and Juliet but not as you know it...

Viking Day will take place on Wednesday November 13th. We're going to be doing some fun Viking-type activities, including making our own shields and axes!

Please keep the cardboard coming - we need quite a bit more to make shields of around 40-45cm diameter. It should be thick cardboard of around this size. We can't use smaller boxes so please don't send them in. See the document below for information on making your own costume.

Three super scientists from Year 5 visited St Monica's for an amazing STEM day with a focus on robotics. For pictures and videos, please have a look at the STEM tab on the Science Curriculum Page:

Gears, Pulleys and Levers... In other words, Legoland day!

Y5 Visit to Legoland

Last Monday Y5 travelled by coach to Legoland. The children had lots of fun learning about forces by actually experiencing them on the rides and finding out more in a one-hour workshop. They behaved fantastically and everyone had a very enjoyable day. Thanks very much to all the parent helpers who came along.  Photos to follow....bit of a technical hitch!

Viking Day - cardboard appeal!

We need cardboard for our Viking Day, which will take place in the last week of the half term.

The aim is for each child to make a viking shield so we need cardboard which allows us to cut a 40cm diameter circle out. 

Please ask friends and neighbours if they have any spare boxes. Local shops also often get their deliveries in large boxes so you might be able to get a few, which would be great for anyone who can't find big enough pieces of card.
