Cookham Rise Primary School

Week commencing 18th May

Friday 22nd May 2020

 

Good morning, Year 5.

 

I cannot believe we have finished another half-term under lock-down and I hope you have a lovely break.  Next half-term, until you are back in school, I will be teaching Year 6 on two days each week and so will only be making phone calls on Mondays, Tuesdays and Wednesdays.  Work will still be set in the same way every day, but I may not have the opportunity to give much feedback on Thursdays and Fridays.  I will, however, still try to respond to any urgent messages on these days.

 

Today, please could you:

 

  • Complete Day 22 in your Early Morning Workbook
  • Complete the Translation with Co-ordinates activity on Seesaw.  If you have time, you could also have a go at the BBC Bitesize weekly maths challenge set on Seesaw
  • In your CPG Reading Comprehension book, work through The Unluckiest Boy in the World on pages 4 and 5
  • For your science work today, finish the Seesaw activity on the life-cycle of butterflies
  • In your spelling book, complete special focus 12 on page 61
  • Take a break and watch Bitesize Daily at https://www.bbc.co.uk/iplayer/episodes/p089g0cc/bitesize-911-year-olds

 

If you’d like some activities to do over half-term, as well as reading on Bug Club, you could complete the activities on reflection and translation on pages 66-69 of your CPG book.

 

I hope you have a lovely holiday and have some fun outdoor experiences over the next week!

 

Take care

 

Mrs Bond

 

Thursday 21st May

 

Good morning, Year 5.

 

I hope you had the chance to enjoy the sunshine yesterday.  It won’t be quite as warm today, but is still forecast to be beautiful, so do try to get out for a walk and some fresh air!

 

Today, please could you:

 

  • Complete Day 21 in your Early Morning Workbook
  • Complete the Maths lesson on translation on Seesaw
  • For your English task today, I’d like you to write a letter or make a card to send to someone who you haven’t seen since lock-down began.  If possible, please choose someone who might be lonely at this time, such as a grandparent or someone with a serious health condition. Think how much it will cheer them up to receive an unexpected letter from someone who loves them!  In your letter, make sure you ask how they are, tell them about what you’re doing and share some positive thoughts.  When you are writing to someone, it’s important to present your work carefully and check your spelling and punctuation – putting effort into your work helps show how much you care. Please share a copy of your letter on Seesaw before putting it in the post.  Make sure you address the envelope correctly – please ask an adult if you aren’t sure how to do this!
  • In your spelling book, complete choose the right word on page 60
  • Take a break and watch Bitesize Daily at https://www.bbc.co.uk/iplayer/episodes/p089g0cc/bitesize-911-year-olds

 

For French, continue with our Memrise challenge at: https://www.memrise.com/group/397919/.  Try and do at least 5 minutes every day and see if you can move up our leaderboard!  Well done to Josie, who is currently top, closely followed by Ellis. Last week, Jenson topped the leaderboard, with Harry in second place.  Well done to everyone who’s got involved - keep it up Year 5!  You need to create a Memrise account at www.memrise.com before you can join the Beech 5 group.

 

Have a lovely day!

Yesterday, we started to look at the artwork of Abdalla al Omari and how he represents refugees.  During the rest of this week, I’d like you to create a piece of artwork that represents your life in lock-down.  It could be a portrait, photograph, collage, painting or drawing. I’d love at least one contribution from every member of the class, so I can put your work together into a short film.  Please could you send your work to me by Friday, so I can edit it over half-term?

 

Thank you all very much!  I hope you have a lovely day.

Monday 18th May 2020         

 

Good morning Year 5.  I hope you’ve had a lovely weekend

 

If you haven’t finished “The Boy at the Back of the Class”, please try to do so before the end of half-term.  Your new Early Morning Work books will be available to collect early in June.  Please could you return your copy of The Boy at the Back of the Class to school then?  I will have some copies of A Boy and a Bear in a Boat available to borrow on the same day.

 

This week, you may find the maths activities easier to do on paper, so all the worksheets, along with this week’s handwriting exercise, are on the website https://www.cookhamriseprimary.org/beech-5-6/  If you do complete them on paper, please upload a photograph to the activity on Seesaw, so I can see your work!

 

Today, please could you:

 

  • Complete Day 18 in your Early Morning Workbook
  • Check whether you can access “Bug Club” at ActiveLearn (https://www.activelearnprimary.co.uk/) and choose a book to begin reading.  Please let me know if you have any difficulty logging in.  You should aim to read at least one Bug Club book over the half-term holiday

For our art project this week, take a look at https://www.facebook.com/pg/TheVulnerabilitySeries/photos/?ref=page_internal

The artist is Abdalla al Omari, a Syrian refugee, who has reimagined many world leaders as refugees. Then look at the Seesaw activity – what are the world leaders thinking?  Why do you think he has represented them in this way?

 

Remember to do some exercise and keep active.

 

I hope you have a great day!


Mrs Bond
