Thursday 9th July

Read Chapter 47 of Holes. Complete the handwriting on the sheet or in your book and write some sentences using the words with the prefix over-. Ask someone at home to test you on the words.

Assembly

We watched this assembly by Ant and Dec today with Child Line, which is designed to help children if they have any worries about Coronovirus. Give it a watch at home, it had some very useful advice.

Monday 6th - Friday 10th July
Maths


This week we will be working on the lessons from Summer Term Week 8 (15th June) I will attach the worksheets below.

https://whiterosemaths.com/homelearning/year-5/

Remember to watch the videos first to refresh your memory from Year 4 and what we have previously learned in Year 5.

If any questions are a bit tricky then you can message me for help, or look at the answer sheet after having a good attempt. Don't worry if you need to leave the odd question out, but if you are finding it too difficult in general, then let me know and you could try the Year 4 work instead, especially if you usually do Mild in class.
Monday 6th July

Read Chapter 44 of Holes and complete the RIC questions (lots of retrieve today).

IMPORTANT UPDATE ON CONTINUED PHASED REOPENING

The phased return to school will continue on 29th June with Year 5 and Year 2 coming back to school where their families have expressed a wish to do so. School will open Monday to Thursday all day and Friday until lunch time. Parents should read the attached documents, both the general guidelines AND the specific details for the year group, very carefully so that the correct timings and entrances are used. **If you decide you no longer wish your child to return to school before September, please let school know as soon you can so we can try and accommodate any other families who do require a place.**

Phased return to school details

**It is important to remember that your child should NOT attend school if they or members of the family are exhibiting symptoms of COVID-19-
  1. a high temperature – this means you feel hot to touch on your chest or back (you do not need to measure your temperature)
  2. a new, continuous cough – this means coughing a lot for more than an hour, or 3 or more coughing episodes in 24 hours (if you usually have a cough, it may be worse than usual)
  3. a loss or change to your sense of smell or taste – this means you've noticed you cannot smell or taste anything, or things smell or taste different to normal.
If you are requested by school to get your child tested if they have developed symptoms, this is not optional. The Trust will not allow any child back into school until the outcome of a test has been presented in school for us to see.
Friday 3rd July
Read Chapters 42-43 of Holes. There is no English work to do today as Chapter 43 is a little longer. Finish anything off that hasn't been completed though this week. There is also a lesson in maths today, not just a challenge. It is not from week 7 it is WEEK 10 LESSON 3. Also remember our TT Rock Stars battle with Y6.
Ellis's Holes story
Thursday 2nd July

English: Read Chapter 41-42 of Holes (you can start 42 and finish tomorrow if you wish). Then do the handwriting int your book neatly. Write some sentences using the words. Don't worry if they're not about Holes, but if they are then great. Finally ask an adult or sibling to give you a little test of the words.

We have a TT Rockstars battle with Y6. Everyone at home, make sure you play lots.
There will be certificates for the top players.
Good luck Y5!!
Wednesday 1st July

English: Read Chapter 40 of Holes, then complete the coordinating conjunctions activity

Message Board

Hope everyone is okay and managing to keep up with the tasks I've been setting each day. Here is a message board for you to let everyone know how you are getting on with your work and maybe let us know what other things you've been up to. Perhaps you have some good ideas for the rest of the class of fun things to do? You don't need to write your surname - just your first name will do.

Thank you to Kane, Ellis, Brandon, Sakina, Ellie and Evie for some of the recent work you have sent. Here are some examples. Remember to send your work to laura.ward@hunsletstmarys.co.uk for me to see :-)

SPACE TOPIC

We are going to do a little topic about space travel and exploration after the recent launch of SpaceX. Maybe you could do some research into the history of space travel and make a timeline? I will keep adding links for extra activities. Have a look at these pictures that some of the key worker group did. They first painted some paper in mixed colours, but you could use felt tips or crayons instead if you prefer. Then they drew around different sized circles to make planets. Finally, they stuck them onto some black paper to look like space.

Friday 5th June

English: Read Newsround (see separate link) or the text about SpaceX (with RIC questions). Answer the RIC retrieve questions about the recent space launch.

This week we will be working on the lessons from Summer Term Week 3 (w/c 4th May). All the lessons are multiplication and division. You will need to scroll down the page to the pink bar with this date and week on.

Go to the website and work though Lessons 1 - 5 each day.

https://whiterosemaths.com/homelearning/year-5/

Remember to watch the videos first and if anything says shade squares etc. just write the number in your book.

If any questions are a bit tricky (I know Q8 from Monday is) then you can message me for help, or look at the answer sheet after having a good attempt. Don't worry if you need to leave the odd question out, but if you are finding it too difficult in general, then let me know and you could try the Year 4 work instead, especially if you usually do Mild in class.

Come on Year 5!!!! 
Happy half term and bank holiday Monday!!

Payton asked for a music lesson, so here is a link that has lots of activities that you could choose from if you fancy doing something a little different over half term, or want some more maths and English. There's also a link to some Music Express lessons, so you can have a little explore on there (you just need to sign in as a teacher using the details they provide).

Read Chapter 27 of Holes, then write sentences with place fronted adverbials about the book. You can use yesterday's spellings, the attached fronted adverbial mat, or think of your own. E.g. Inside the hole, Stanley caught a glimpse of something gold and shiny, so bent down to take a closer look. Underneath the fresh sandy rubble, was a gold tube with the letters KB inside a love heart.

Thursday 21st May

English: Handwriting and spelling practise. Ask someone at home to test you when you have practised. Can you use some of them in sentences?

Collect from The Sixth Sunday of Easter

God our redeemer,

you have delivered us from the power of darkness

and brought us into the kingdom of your Son:

grant, that as by his death he has recalled us to life,

so by his continual presence in us he may raise us to eternal joy;

through Jesus Christ your Son our Lord,

who is alive and reigns with you,

in the unity of the Holy Spirit,

one God, now and for ever.

Reflection opportunity:
What brings you joy? How can you share this with other people that they feel joy also?

Last week's work gallery

Thank you Frankie, Grayson and Ellis for sending me lots of lovely pictures of your work. Here are a few:

Monday 11th May
English


Read Chapter 22 of Holes.

Edit the passage below (that has boring sentences) in your books to make it sound much more interesting to the reader. Can you add fronted adverbs, relative clauses, expanded noun phrases, coordinating and subordinating conjunctions?

The water truck arrived. Stanley drank his canteen. Mr Sir filled it. The truck pulled away. Stanley went back in his hole. Magnet asked if anyone wanted sunflower seeds. He had stolen them from Mr Sir. The boys ate them. Stanley didn't want to. Zig-Zag threw them to him. The bag split in his hole. Mr Sir came back and took Stanley to see the warden.   

These events are from Chapter 19.
If you started this last week then continue with some more sentences of your own up to Chapter 22. Think of a simple (boring) sentence in your head and then edit it to make it sound more interesting to the reader.

I would love to see your work. Ask an adult to send a picture to laura.ward@hunsletstmarys.co.uk. I will make a work gallery with examples of work sent to me this week.

A prayer and reflection for the week beginning 11th May:

The Collect, from the Fifth Sunday of Easter Service

O lord,

from whom all good things do come:

Grant to us your humble servants,

that by your holy inspiration we may think those that be good,

and by your merciful guiding may perform the same;

Through our Lord Jesus Christ.

Amen.


Reflection opportunity

What ‘good’ things can you do this week to please God? To please your parents and family?

Thursday 7th May

Today we will do Lesson 4 from  Week 2 of the White Rose home learning work on decimals. Scroll down to the bottom of the page to find week 2. The lesson is called percentages as fractions and decimals.
https://whiterosemaths.com/homelearning/year-5/

Go to the website to watch the short video first to introduce it and recap, then complete as much as you can of the following sheet.

If you usually do Mild work or find this hard, don't worry if some of the higher numbered questions are a little tricky. You can download the answers from the website to check, but only do this when you have had a really good go at them all yourself first. Or you can try the Year 4 Week 1 or 2 work instead.

Here is a link for the worksheet (Week 2: Lesson 4), when you have watched the video, just write the answers and any working out you need to do in your home-school book. If it asks you to shade squares/boxes, you can just write the number you would need to shade in your book as the answer.

* There won't be any work tomorrow as it's a special bank holiday, however, if you would like to do the final lesson (Lesson 5) of the week before Monday (or even just watch the video and do a few Qs), it may help you to consolidate your understanding of fractions, decimals and percentages. *
Wednesday 6th May

English (Spelling): Read Chapter 20 of Holes. In your books, practise your handwriting with these time adverbials. Then write some sentences using the words (preferably about Holes). Ask someone in your house if they'll give you a mini spelling test afterwards. Let me know how you got on. There's also a wordsearch if anyone would also like that.

Thursday 7th May

Read Chapter 21 and make sure you are up to date with this week's English tasks. If you already are, then try to edit the passage below (that has boring sentences) in your books to make it sound much more interesting to the reader. Can you add fronted adverbs, relative clauses, expanded noun phrases, coordinating and subordinating conjunctions?

The water truck arrived. Stanley drank his canteen. Mr Sir filled it. The truck pulled away. Stanley went back in his hole. Magnet asked if anyone wanted sunflower seeds. He had stolen them from Mr Sir. The boys ate them. Stanley didn't want to. Zig-Zag threw them to him. The bag split in his hole. Mr Sir came back and took Stanley to see the warden.   

These events are from Chapter 19 - you can continue and add more events up to Chapter 21 if you would like to.

Science investigation (optional Easter activity)

Hi everyone! As the weather's looking good this week, I thought some of you may like to try this investigation if you have a bike or scooter etc. at home. You will be testing materials to see which creates the most friction and therefore makes a good break pad to stop a wheel from turning. All you need to do it is a piece of cardboard that will be the brake pad and then different materials to wrap around it to test. I would see if you can find a range of smooth and rough materials, e.g. tin foil, a sponge, paper, an old sock maybe, a bit of old towel, bubble wrap, sand paper. Don't worry if you don't have all these materials, you can use anything that will wrap around a piece of card. Only use old things or things that your parents allow you to cut up.You won't need big pieces, just to cover a square of card that is the width of the bike wheel. You will need to time how long the wheel takes to stop. You could use a timer or just count the number of seconds. Remember to make a prediction first. Have fun and let us know on the message board what your conclusion is. I have included a Power Point and some examples of tables etc. that you can either print or copy into your book.

Happy Easter Holidays

Hi everyone! If we were at school now we would be getting ready to go home for the Easter Holidays. Therefore, next week I won't be putting on Maths and English everyday, but feel free to catch up on anything that you haven't done already, especially if you haven't read up to Chapter 10 of Holes yet. The chapters are quite short and everyone on the message board has agreed that it has been great so far. There's also TT Rock stars and loads of other online educational games to play if you enjoy them.

I will post some links to optional fun things over the next 2 weeks in case you would like to do some extra activities at home. You can also share ideas of the fun things you've been up to on the message board, including links to useful websites, and I will try to approve your posts each day. I will need to get rid of some of the older posts each day to make space.
You can still send me pictures of things that you have been doing and I will add them to our galleries.

Enjoy a little down time with your family if you can and we shall resume our daily learning tasks on Monday 20th April.

Take care. 

Mrs Ward

Wednesday 1st April
Maths


Today is a catch up day for any maths not finished from previous days.
If you have done everything, then go on Times Tables Rock Stars or NumBots for a bit and then work on the internet safety poster.
Internet Safety Poster

While you are learning at home, you will be using the internet to help you work. When you are having downtime, no doubt you will play games online and use phones, tablets etc. to keep in contact with your friends. Technology is really important to us right now, however, it is essential that you remember how to keep yourself safe online. 

This week's task is to design a poster to share on our website that reminds the rest of the class/school about how we can keep safe on line. Start by writing a list of things that are really important for children to remember e.g. only talking to your close friends and family online, never sharing your personal information, talking to an adult if something makes you feel unsafe etc. We had lots of great ideas in class recently.

Try to make your poster eye catching and include clearly all the information that children will need to remember how to stay safe. Then email a picture of your poster to me: laura.ward@hunsletstmarys.co.uk

 
Wednesday 1st April 
English


Read Chapter 8 of Holes - It's a short one.
You can reread some of the previous chapters if you wish. Maybe read a chapter aloud to an adult or ask an adult if they will read to you. If you look on YouTube there are also some videos where the book is being read aloud.

Try to find as many words as you can in the first Y5/6 spelling words crossword in your pack. Keep checking the orange word list at the front to find the missing words.
Hot - Can you also use some of these words in sentences of your own about Holes?

I'll post the answers to the crossword tomorrow for you.
