Friday 1st May

Good morning Year 5!  Today it is officially May Day!  This year the Bank Holiday Monday has been changed to next Friday to coincide with VE day – you’ll find out more about that in next week’s learning! If you want to find out any more about May Day and customs surrounding it, why not have a look here: http://projectbritain.com/mayday.htm

Have you checked out Mr Penn’s online classroom yet? Miss Green has suggested some rainy day activities.  This week Mrs Woodhead and her children tried out her ice cube paints – you can see some of their fun art work below!

For any parents who have been unable to contact Mrs Anderson, her email address has been changed (again!)  Please note the new address.  She has been reliably informed that emails to previous accounts will be forwarded to this one!  Feel free to send her a quick email to say hello and check using the email address below!

Have a happy and safe weekend – the weather is meant to be improving J

In maths today, click on the link above and it should take you to a mymaths investigation about frogs moving on lily pads.  There are instructions so follow them carefully.  To make it easier, start off with just 2 frogs on either end of the lily pads (you'll need to go to page 3 on mymaths and adjust it yourself.  You can gradually build up the number of frogs at each end to make it more difficult. If you want to take it further here are some questions to think about:

Can you see any patterns in the sequence of moves that it takes to swap the frogs over?
Can you explain why those patterns occur?
Can you describe a method for swapping all the frogs over in the minimum number of moves?

Thursday 30th April

Hello year 5.  Today it is Captain Tom’s 100th birthday!  He has recently broken TWO world records: the oldest ever person to get a number one single in the UK charts, and has raised the most money ever doing an individual charity walk!  What an achievement!  So when you go out this evening to give the NHS a clap, think of Tom. Nathaniel in 5EW has made a fabulous card for him – well done Nathaniel.

The following web link takes you to set of 5 Maths lessons - one for each day of the week. We strongly advise that only one of these is done each day as this helps children time to process their learning before moving on to the next lesson. Each lesson has a video and clear illustrations to help your learning.

You can write the answers to the worksheets straight into your books the worksheets do not need to be printed.  Let us know how you get on!

Go to year 5, Summer term week 2, lesson 4 – subtracting decimals with a different number of decimal places.

THURSDAY – Character focus: For each of these pictures, choose two words that summarise the character’s feelings and put them into a descriptive sentence. It is up to you which character you focus on (you can view these pictures in more detail on the powerpoint).

EXTENSION IDEAS

If you have enjoyed the book and have any spare time, you could try one of these suggestions…

• You could create your own ‘lost thing’ and describe it
• Use the title ‘The Lost Thing’ as the starting point for your own story
• Copy some of the illustrations. Can you add any thought bubbles to them?
• Write a prequel to this story that explains where the Lost Thing came from.
• Imagine the Lost Thing could talk. What would it say? Write a conversation between it and Shaun.

Hello you lot!  We hope that today’s weather is better than yesterday, although the forecast doesn’t look too promising.  It’s not too late to create a 100th birthday card for Captain Tom – it’s his birthday on Thursday.  He’s received 125,000 cards so far! We wonder who counted them all?!  It’s a bit too late to post them now but you could take a photo of it and post it on Twitter using #makeacardfortom

Please keep in touch with us, even if it’s just a quick email to say hello?  We’re missing you!

We have planned some reading activities for you to complete this week to ensure that you have the opportunity to practise and improve your reading skills, which are incredibly important.

This week, we are using one of our favourite books ‘The Lost Thing’ by Shaun Tan. For today’s learning though, you just need the front cover! (see below)

Look carefully at the cover, and then answer the following questions:

1. What stands out the most?
2. What are the dominant colours used? What effect do you think these colours have on meaning?
3. Describe the particular font used for the title. Why do you think it was chosen? What does it suggest about the story?
4. The quote below the title says “A tale for those who have more important things to pay attention to.” What do you think that means?
5. What do we learn about the story from this cover? What do you think it’s going to be about?
‘Children are captivated by their learning’, ‘The well-being of pupils is at the heart of the school’, ‘School is a calm place - pupils are polite, courteous and well-mannered’
