Cookham Rise Primary School

Week commencing 20th April

Friday 24th April

 

Well done for all your hard work this week!  Today, please could you:

 

  • Complete Day 3 in your Early Morning Workbook
  • Watch today’s Bitesize at https://www.bbc.co.uk/iplayer/group/p089nk5f
  • Complete the English activity on Seesaw
  • Every Friday, I’ll be setting a maths challenge on Seesaw.  Try and solve these questions with the rest of your family – and perhaps help any younger siblings solve the first two questions.  Some more challenging questions have been set for anyone who wants an extra brain workout!
  • In your spelling book, complete Special Focus 9 on page 46 
  • Our science topic this term is living things.  In Year 4, you learnt about “MRS GREN”, along with finding out vertebrates and invertebrates.  Create a poster or short movie to share what you already know about the characteristics of living things and how you would sort vertebrates and invertebrates.  This video might be a helpful reminder:  https://www.bbc.co.uk/bitesize/topics/zn22pv4/articles/z3nbcwx

 

Over the weekend, please ensure you have read up to the end of chapter 6 of The Boy at the Back of the Class.

 

I hope you have a lovely weekend!

Wednesday 22nd April 2020

 

It was lovely to see some of you yesterday when you collected your new workbooks and I hope to speak to lots of you over the phone during the next couple of days!  Each day I will be including a link to BBC Bitesize Daily, which is a 20-minute programme for you to watch on iPlayer.  This is optional, but a great way for you to learn in a different way.  Finally, I uploaded the first picture of my caterpillars to Seesaw – look out for a daily update and let’s see how quickly they grow!

 

Today, please could you:

 

  • Complete Day 1 in your new Early Morning Workbook
  • Watch today’s Bitesize Daily at https://www.bbc.co.uk/iplayer/group/p089nk5f
  • Complete today’s English and maths activities. 
    • Today’s maths exercise is to complete pages 30 and 31 of your CPG book.  Information about how to do this is on Seesaw, along with additional work on the same topic to finish tomorrow.
    • I have put together many of the memories you created for the father in English yesterday.  This is at the bottom of this page;  I’ll update it mid-morning with any other examples I receive
  • In your spelling book, complete Dictation and Four-in-a-Row on page 44 of your spelling book
  • Read chapters 1 and 2 of The Boy at the Back of your Class.  You can either read this aloud to an adult or quietly to yourself.  Alternatively, an audio recording of the book is available to buy online
  • Some people have to leave their homes because of their beliefs.  What beliefs are important to you?  Can you make a word cloud (https://www.wordclouds.com) to represent the things that are most important to you?  This could include your religious beliefs or values.  My example is at the bottom of the page.

 

Remember to read and exercise for at least 30 minutes every day!

 

Have a lovely day

Tuesday 21st April 2020

 

Good morning, Year 5.

 

Thank you to everyone who uploaded work to me yesterday.  Your first task today is to see if I’ve left you some feedback (as a comment underneath your work) and to respond to it.  If you haven't uploaded your work yet, please do so - I'm looking at your work between 1pm and 3pm each day.

 

Once you've done that, please could you:

  • Complete Day 29 in your Early Morning Workbook.
  • Complete the English and maths activities on Seesaw
  • Complete the topic activity on Seesaw:  what do you already know about the sea?
  • In your spelling book, complete word changers and the thesaurus challenge on page 43.  Find an online thesaurus if you don’t have one at home
  • For your art project this week, find the following pictures online:
    • Puget Sound on the Pacific Coast by Albert Bierstadt
    • West Point, Prout’s neck by Winslow Homer

Think about how these pictures make you feel.  What is the weather like?  What’s the state of the sea?  How would it feel to be on the beach?  Draw or paint your own picture of the coast showing the sea on a stormy day.

 

Remember to read and do some exercise for at least 30 minutes each day!

 

Have a lovely day

Monday 20th April 2020

 

Good morning Year 5 and welcome back to a new term at school!  I hope you had a lovely Easter break and are ready for lots of learning.

 

Whilst we are home-learning, please complete the maths and English work every day and share your work with me on Seesaw.  The activities on Seesaw often have several pages to them – please try and finish every activity unless it states that it is a bronze, silver or gold challenge.  If you are still having problems accessing Seesaw, please let me know so we can make alternative arrangements.

 

To share work this term, I have now set up a class blog.  Please go to https://blog.seesaw.me/cookhamrisebeech5/ and use the password that will be sent to you via Seesaw.

 

Our topic throughout the summer is Sail Away.  Until half-term, we will be exploring journeys that people make by sea, before looking more generally at the sea and coastline in June and July.  We will be reading The Boy at the Back of the Class together and copies of this book, along with a new Early Morning Work booklet, will be available to collect from school on Tuesday, 21st April between 11am and 1pm.  Please let me know if you are not able to collect these and we'll arrange for them to be delivered to you.  If any parents are able to help deliver, we would be really grateful.

 

If any parents are interested in finding out more about our topic alongside their child, The Beekeeper of Aleppo by Christy Lefteri is a great adult read that covers many of the same themes as The Boy at the Back of the Class.

 

Our science this term is looking at living things, and in particular, plants.  Please could you choose some seeds to plant and take a daily photo of your plant’s growth?  Some caterpillars will be moving into my kitchen this week and I look forward to sharing their metamorphosis with you!

 

Today, please could you:

 

  • Complete Day 28 in your Early Morning Workbook.

  • Complete the English and maths activities on Seesaw.
    Make sure you keep a paper copy of your artwork from English, ready for tomorrow’s lesson.

  • In your spelling book, complete the spelling zone and dots and dashes on pages 42 and 43

  • Watch the video of the School Song from Matilda at https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=i_03np9IqKg.  At the bottom of this page are adapted lyrics, for us to create a Home School song!  I’d love to see and hear your recordings and films of this song throughout this week.  Feel free to change the words to make them even better and be as creative as you can!  I’d particularly like to receive photographs representing the different letters of the alphabet.  Next weekend, I’ll try and edit your ideas into a Beech 5 class movie!  Please use the backing track from this site:  https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=tDoGmz-agw4

 

Remember to read and do some exercise for at least 30 minutes each day!

 

Have a lovely day

 

Mrs Bond
