Hi there, year 5. We hope that you’re all ok.   Find today’s tasks detailed below.  Stay safe!

 

The next two weeks are the official Easter holidays, so we won’t be setting any home-learning for you to do.  Of course, keep reading and quiz on your books with the link below. You could also practise your times tables, and keep a diary of what you’ve been doing. Have a break (of sorts), try and get out in the fresh air, and know that we are all thinking of you.  

 

We still haven’t heard from quite a few of you, so why don’t you email us an Easter card (or pictures of you eating your Easter eggs?!). Or if you’ve not emailed us, please do, just to say hello?

 

Happy Easter everyone.

  • Why is it so small?
  • Are there more like him?
  • Where does he live?
  • How will you look after it?
  • Will you keep it a secret or tell someone?
  • What is it called?
  • Is it magic?  What magic can it do?

Eg. I like to imagine that it is a really small dragon which you can keep in your pocket but when you need to it can grow huge so that you can ride it.

Hello gang!  Hoping you’re all ok.  It’s April Fool’s Day today!  Why not try a prank on a family member?!  I do remember one year, when we told all the juniors at TJ that they needed to go to the hall at break time – all the teachers went in too with stern faces.  The children all looked a little worried, and then we all shouted “April Fool!” It was quite hilarious, and fortunately they all saw the funny side.

English:

Practise spellings

In class we have done work on identifying clauses used in sentences and have used conjunctions to create our own complex sentences.

 

A complex sentence = Main clause + subordinate clause/ relative clause

A Main clause will make sense on its own and needs to include a subject and a verb.

A subordinate clause will not make sense on its own and starts with a subordinate conjunction.

A relative clause adds information to the main clause and doesn’t make sense on its own.  

TASK: Create 8 of your own complex sentences based on the image below, punctuate your sentences carefully.

Picture 1

e.g Snape paced the classroom before he announced to the class that they were learning the subtle science and exact art of potion making.

e.g Snapewho didn’t look very impressedpaced the classroom.

 

 

USE THESE SUBORDINATING CONJUNCTIONS AND

RELATIVE PRONOUNS

After, although, because, before, as, even, if, since,

 though, that, unless, until, when, whenever, where,

 wherever, whether, which, while, who, why.

Spring is in the air! Mrs Woodhead found a hedgehog at the bottom of her garden the other day and Mrs Anderson has lambs peeping over her fence. Can you research an animal native to the British countryside (fox, hare, deer, etc) and write a factfile about that animal. Don’t forget to include information about their appearance, their habitat, what they eat and other interesting facts! Remember to use subheadings and paragraphs to space out your work.

As an extra challenge, you could draw a picture of your animal; there are lots of online drawing tutorials at the moment you could use to help you.

Hey there Year 5!  We hope you’re all ok?  It’s been lovely to hear from a few of you in the last couple of days by email.  Thank you for keeping in touch!

We understand that this is a difficult time for everybody, and it is quite natural to worry about things. Take a look at this Doctor Who clip.  The Doctor offers some very sensible advice:

I’ve been in contact with a care home in Stratford called Scholar Mews.  The residents there are on complete lock-down and aren’t allowed visitors, so they must be very lonely.  If any of you feel like writing to them, they would love it – and it would bring a smile to their faces!  You could write telling them a little bit about you or what you’ve been doing this week? Draw a picture too if you like?  Remember NOT to add your address, for safeguarding reasons.

If you would like to do this, then please send by post to:

Hello year 5!  We hope you all managed to access the activities yesterday if you tried!  We notice that Mr Penn has put some other activities in his classroom, which look rather amusing!  We particularly liked the poorly spelt and punctuated letter from Mr Drummond!  It would be great to see you improving it?!

Don’t forget to go and get out in the garden whilst the sun shines!  Why not help the person who cares for you to make the dinner, or make a cake?  Mrs Anderson has made bread today!

Our email addresses are below. Please feel free to email us any questions you may have about the activities we post on here. We’ll endeavour to reply to you as soon as we can. We can’t wait to see your photos! We will be really happy to hear from you!

Maths: We have attached a maths mat today for you to have a go at! Do the bits you can!  You can download it here:

Maths Mat 1

English: Practise your punctuation using the sheet below.

If you prefer, why not improve that badly written letter in Mr Penn’s classroom?! 

Other useful websites which teachers use in school are: topmarks.co.uk, ictgames.com, BBCbitesize, nrich.maths.org, the muddypuddleteacher.co.uk, ichild.co.uk – take a look if you get bored!

Bye for now!

Hi gang!  Welcome to the Year 5 “Virtual Classroom.” We want you to know that we are missing you all and we hope that you’re all ok! (We are all fine.)  Please remember that even if we’re not in school, we are here for you, and you can contact us by email if you want to (parents and children!).  We are putting together maths and English activities for each day, and we will suggest other activities too.  Just do what you can, if you can, when you can. Do not worry about anything that you can’t do.  Don’t forget to look at Mr Penn’s virtual class room too, as he has suggested some lovely activities.

We would love to see anything the children are up to – drawings, writing, maths, art work – please take a photo and email us, or even tweet us and include  #TJ #5A #5EW  - that way all of their friends can also see what they’ve been up to, and even comment!

Our email addresses are below. Please feel free to email us any questions you may have about the activities we post on here. We’ll endeavour to reply to you as soon as we can. We can’t wait to see your photos! We will be really happy to hear from you!

Email Communication Statement

As a school we recognise the value of providing email addresses for parents to communicate non-urgent issues with members of staff. At Thomas Jolyffe teachers are free to check their emails as they wish in order to fit to their own preferred work pattern but are not expected to check while they are teaching, while they are at home, or at weekends - so response times may vary. We believe that 48 working hours is a reasonable length of time to receive a considered reply. Urgent matters are best discussed face to face or via the school office, who will ensure the message is delivered as quickly as possible. As with all messages, the meaning and tone may vary depending on who is reading it. Please consider this before choosing to email any member of staff. We would also encourage all parents to consider information sent to teachers regarding other children very carefully as this can be requested by other parents under the rules governing GDPR.

If you need to contact your child's class teacher:

 

mertens.h@welearn365.com

Evans.c3@welearn365.com

Woodhead.v@welearn365.com

 

 

 

 

Home learning

 

  • A minimum of 25 minutes of accelerated reading should take place every day.
  • Weekly maths home learning needs to be completed and handed in every Thursday so that the children can mark their work with their teacher.
  • Spellings will be set on Tuesdays to be tested for the following Tuesday. (5A spellings will be tested on a Monday)
  • Theme home learning will be set once every half term, although not necessarily at the beginning of the term.

 

P.E.

Please help to ensure that your child has the correct kit in school every day:

  • Outdoor sport: white t-shirt, black jogging bottoms, red or black jumper, a pair of socks, and trainers.
  • Indoor sport: white t-shirt, red shorts, a pair of socks, and black pumps.
  • Swimming: towel, a pair of goggles, one-piece swim suit (girls), fitted swim trunks (boys).

For the autumn term, Year 5 will have PE on a Wednesday and Swimming on a Tuesday.
