Thanks for your continued support,
I'm looking forward to catching up with you this week Our home learning arrangements are going to be changing. I will be making video lessons and putting them on Google classroom with activities to go with them. So to access your home learning you'll need to be logging onto Google Classroom through Hwb. I will be catching up with children who wont be attending school on Friday to see how you're getting on with the work.
If you need any help getting on to Google Classroom or you have forgotten your Hwb login, email me ASAP so I can get you up and running to access this week's work.
Hello Year 5! I hope you are all well? I would like you to continue following BBC Bitesize Daily for Literacy and Maths and as it is Refugee Week I have included activities that I would like you to do over the next 2 weeks. Please don't forget to up load you work to SeeSaw or Google Classrooms.

Spring Term 2020
Welcome to Year 5! Your teachers this year will be Mrs Weston (Monday and Wednesday morning) and Mrs Hill.
Our new Enquiry for this term is "Incredible Inventive Italy".
Literacy, Language and Communication
In Literacy we will be looking at different Talk 4 Write techniques in retelling the legend of Romulus and Remus. The children will be choosing a topic about Italy to research and create a non- chronological report. We will also be focussing on handwriting and presentation and creating work that we are proud of.
Numeracy and Maths
You can never over practise your tables so please keep it up!
There are lots of online maths games you can play
This year the children will also continue to follow the Abacus maths scheme and will be set regular homework from the Active Learn website. Please try to encourage your child to complete their allocated tasks, as it reinforces work carried out in the classroom. The site is tablet and phone compatible.
Science and Technology
In Science and Technology, we will be looking at the universe and answering questions like: How do we get day and night? Why do we have different seasons? and What are the phases of the moon? We will also be looking at the Italian scientist Galileo and people's beliefs during that time period.
Expressive Arts and Well Being
We will be investigating the Learning Tower of Pisa and creating sculptures out of clay using different sculpting techniques.
The children bring home their reading books everyday and we ask that they read at home to an adult. Their reading books must be brought into school everyday as the children have many opportunities to read. The children will have various reading experiences throughout the week, including a Guided Group Reading session.In school we focus a great deal on understanding the content of what is being read, asking a variety of questions about the content, in order to ensure they gain a full understanding of the plot, characters and themes. Please ask the children questions about their books to ensure they have understood what they have read.
PE is every Monday and Games on Wednesday. Please ensure all children bring in suitable clothing and appropriate footwear, i.e. trainers, for indoor and outdoor PE and Games activities. This may include T-shirts, shorts, leggings, jogging bottoms and a warm top.
