Good morning, Year 5.

I loved seeing some of your mini-books yesterday – keep them coming in over the next few weeks!

 

Today, please could you:

 

  • Complete Day 16 in your Early Morning Workbook
  • Complete the arithmetic maths activity on Seesaw
  • Today and on Friday, please write the story you planned yesterday.  Make sure that you write at least five paragraphs and that your work is carefully edited before uploading a pdf to Seesaw or emailing it to me.  Please check:
    • There are capital letters at the beginning of every sentence and proper noun
    • Each sentence ends with a full stop, exclamation mark or question mark
    • Every paragraph and most sentences begin in different ways.  Think about using adverbial phrases and conjunctions to vary your sentences and use a mixture of long and short sentences
    • You have spelt all homophones correctly, especially there/their/they’re, where/were, are/our
    • You have used the attached checklist to ensure that your writing is as good as possible!
  • In your spelling book, complete choose the right word on page 54
  • Take a break and watch Bitesize Daily at https://www.bbc.co.uk/iplayer/episodes/p089g0cc/bitesize-911-year-olds

 

For French this week and next, please ask your parents to help you set up a Memrise account and join the Beech 5 group by visiting https://www.memrise.com/group/397919/.  Try and do 5 minutes every day and see if we can get a class competition going!

 

I’ve mentioned to some parents on the phone that next half-term we will be reading “A Boy and a Bear in a Boat” by Dave Shelton.  I will hopefully have a few copies of the book available from school, but it would be really helpful if families can buy or borrow the story.  Please could parents let me know if they will need school to provide a copy?  We will also have new Early Morning Work booklets ready to collect after half-term.

 

As ever, I’m really impressed with everything you are sending through and I hope you have a lovely day.

As an art and life-skills project this week, I’d like to start creating a Beech 5 mini-book library with at least one contribution from each member of the class.  Please follow the guidance on Seesaw to create your own mini-book and bring it back to school when we return..  It could be a book of recipes, poetry, your own short story or a retelling of your favourite book!  I’ve written “Mrs Bond’s Guide to Surviving Lock-down” as my contribution and you can hear me read it aloud on Seesaw.  You can make as many books as you like over the next few weeks – I think I will make more!

 

For computing this week, choose one of the following:

 

Make sure you do some exercise - I hope you have a lovely day!
