Celebration Assembly 2 July 2021

This week's guest presenter is Mr Hyde!

Maths

 

Before you start your lesson today, have a go at playing this really fun game (Miss Faulkner found it a little bit addictive!). Choose the area of maths that you want to warm up with.

Yesterday, we recapped our understanding of translation. Remind yourself of what it is by playing this quiz.
 

If you didn’t complete yesterday’s work, please complete the two added extras on your Doodle Maths.

 

Once you have recapped yesterday’s learning, watch this Maths Mansion video.

 

 

 

39 On Reflection

Recognising Reflections

Now have a go at this lesson on reflection. Remember, a translation is a slide, and a reflection is a flip.

 

 

Once you have completed this lesson, have a go at your added extra about reflection on Doodle Maths. Make sure that you are in the green.

 

Guided Reading

Please complete your reading task from yesterday. Remember that you are able to choose one of the following tasks:

 

Activity A – Information Poster

 

Read through the text about the life of Kenneth Grahame and select at least five fascinating facts about his life.  Present the information in a poster.  Remember to add ‘Did you know?’ boxes so that you are engaging the reader. Your poster can be done on paper or in a PowerPoint presentation.

 

 

Activity B – Front Cover and Blurb

 

If you choose this activity, we would like you to read through the information about Kenneth Grahame and then become publishers!  You should design a new front cover for ‘The Wind in the Willows’ and then write a blurb.  You must include information from the text in your blurb – remember, you are encouraging people to read the book!

 

 


 

 

English

 


 

Yesterday, we looked at the spellings of their/there/they’re.  Today, we are going to focus upon your/you’re.  Go through the PowerPoint presentation that is provided below and then complete one of the tasks below.  Don’t worry if you can’t print the sheets off, just record your answers on a piece of paper (neatly please!)

 

Again, then challenge yourself to writing some extended sentence, using relative clauses and Year Five punctuation.

  • Make a 3D model of a river’s journey.  Add labels to your model to show the features of a river.  You may wish to send a photo in, or even a little video!

 

  • Explain the journey of a river through a PowerPoint presentation. Copy and paste diagrams into your presentations.

 

  • You may wish to take notes whilst watching the videos and then write a report.

 

  • You may simply want to complete one of the activities from below.

Well done for all your efforts.  We look forward to seeing all of your work on Monday. Please make sure that you email any PowerPoint presentations that you have produced, as we will allow some time for sharing all of your hard work on Monday.

 

Have a much deserved rest over the weekend and we really, REALLY, look forward to seeing you back on Monday.  Remember to keep isolating until Monday.

 

Take care,

 

Love,

 

Mrs Humphries and Miss Faulkner

 

Thursday 1st July

Good morning Year Five!  Thank you for the fantastic effort that you put into your learning yesterday. Here is how your day is looking today:

Guided Reading


 

Kenneth Grahame

 

Choose from:

 

Activity A

Create an information poster about the author of ‘The Wind in the Willows.’

 

Or

 

Activity B

Writing

Homophones:

Today we will be looking at how a given shape or unit can be moved.  Look through the PowerPoint below to help you with your understanding.  Once you have gone through the PowerPoint presentation, complete your Doodle tasks – most of you will have two tasks.  You can consolidate your understanding by playing the game below:

Guided Reading

 

 

For Guided Reading we would like you to read the information about Kenneth Grahame, who wrote ‘The Wind in the Willows’.  You then have a choice of activities  - you only have to choose one activity.  The activity you choose should be done over today and tomorrow.

 

 

Activity A – Information Poster

 

Read through the text about the life of Kenneth Grahame and select at least five fascinating facts about his life.  Present the information on a poster. Remember to add ‘Did you know?’ boxes so that you are engaging the reader. Your poster can be done on paper or in a PowerPoint presentation.

 

 


 

Activity B – Front Cover and Blurb

 

If you choose this activity, we would like you to read through the information about Kenneth Grahame and then become publishers!  You should design a new front cover for ‘The Wind in the Willows’ and then write a blurb.  You must include information from the text in your blurb – remember, you are encouraging people to read the book!

 

Again, if you choose this activity, it should take two reading sessions.

English

 

 

Today we are going to revise their/there/they’re. We can still get jumbled up with this so today we are going to consolidate our learning! Please read through the PowerPoint presentation to remind yourself of the different uses of their/there/they’re.

 

 

 

 

 

Attached is an exercise involving selecting the appropriate their/there/there.  We expect most of you to complete the sheet and then generate your own extended sentences, which should include brackets and commas to add more clarity and depth to your sentences.  You might also wish to make a poster for KS1 child, which helps them to learn the correct spelling and usage of there/their/they’re.

 

 


This afternoon we would like you to start a mini-project.  You will be learning about the journey of a river and it’s key features.  We expect this learning to take over two afternoons.  Watch the links below:

 

Geography | KS1 | KS2 | Rivers | BBC Teach

This film is a useful tool to show pupils how the river journey changes as it moves from source to mouth.It can be used to describe what happens at each stag...

You can choose from one of these activities:

 

  • Make a 3D model of a river’s journey.  Add labels to your model to show the features of a river.  You may wish to send a photo in, or even a little video!

 

  • Explain the journey of a river through a PowerPoint presentation. Copy and paste diagrams into your presentations.

 

  • You may wish to take notes whilst watching the videos and then write a report.

 

  • You may simply want to complete one of the activities from below.

We hope that you have had a good day. Remember to share your work through the advice email.

 

Time to rest up now … one more day to go!

 

 

Love,

 

Mrs Humphries and Miss Faulkner

Wednesday 30th June

 

 

 
  


Good Morning Year 5

 

 

It’s not quite the Wednesday that we were expecting but we have got this!  Our main aim today is to get into the green.

5H

 

Guided Reading

 

Please complete the rivers comprehension that was sent home with you yesterday.  Remember to answer the questions using full sentences!  Please remember to find evidence in the text to support your answers. Those children who were not in class yesterday, will be set a Doodle reading task so please check your ‘Extras’.

5H, you have been set work in Maths, English and Spellings. Our aim is to be in the green by the end of the day!

 

Maths – The work set will support the shape work that has been done in class. 

 

English – This work will help to support the work that we have done on relative clauses and commas for clarity.

 

Spelling – This work will cover key spellings.

 

Practise your tables!

 

 

REMEMBER…

 

Be green!

 

5F

 

For your work today, could you please complete two of your spelling workouts - if you want a little more practise with your spellings, practise the spellings at the back of the book.

 

All of your lessons today are on Doodle.

 

Maths – Complete the two extras on shape.

 

English - I have put on an extra about relative clauses, and one about using commas for clarity (Let's eat Mrs Milnes or Let's eat, Mrs Milnes).

 

Please then make sure that you are in the green zone for Maths, English, Spelling and Tables. 

 

Remember …

 

It’s cool to be green!

We hope that you have a good day - remember that you can contact us through the advice email address:
