Thursday 21st May

Hello year 5. We hope you are well.  It was good to hear from one or two of you in the week.  Joel made Mrs Anderson laugh when he told her that he had been having water fights using Calpol syringes with his brother. 

He suggested that Mrs Anderson try it, but unfortunately her children are all grown up, and she doesn’t have any Calpol syringes. She did, however, have a hosepipe and this week had a self-distancing water fight against the neighbours.  They had a super-soaker gun – who do you think came off worse!?  Remember to ASK your neighbours first, before trying this!?

Hello year 5.  We hope you are well.  This week is National Mental Health Awareness week, which is a chance for the UK to focus on mental health. 

 

This year’s theme is kindness.  The focus on kindness is a response to the coronavirus outbreak, which is having a big impact on people’s mental health.  Have a look at the link, which is from BBC Newsround to find out more? https://www.bbc.co.uk/newsround/52557800

 

Your teachers all know what a lovely, kind bunch you are!  So why not go out of your way today to show an act of kindness?  It might be helping with cooking the dinner, giving a family member (in your household) a huge hug, or helping your brother or sister with something?  We’d love to know what you’ve been up to, so please let us know in an email?  Send pictures!  We love seeing your faces!

Firstly, please read through the two Powerpoint presentations about advertising.

TASK 2: Look back at the second Powerpoint – can you complete an activity from the final page?

Today’s English lesson is an EGPS lesson, looking at spelling rules.  Everyones spellings this week will be based on this rule.

Use the powerpoint presentation to see how to apply the rule, then have a go at the worksheet.   You can check your answers afterwards with the attached sheet.

English challenge for fun! Words that look like their meanings…

Mrs Anderson used to love making words look like their meanings.  For example:

Curly               Scary                  Fat

Without using the fonts on a computer (I cheated), how many words can you make look like their meanings?  Email some to us, and we’ll share them with your friends on the website.

Good luck!
