Take care

Good morning Year 5!  I continue to be really impressed with the quality of your work and love reading it every afternoon – thank you!

 

Today, please could you:

 

 

In DT we are investigating food to take on a journey.  Over the next two weeks, I’d like you to think about why biscuits might be a good food to include and investigate different types of biscuits.

 

If your parents agree, choose two biscuit recipes (go to https://www.bbcgoodfood.com/recipes/collection/kids-biscuit or use your own).  Make one set of biscuits this week and some different biscuits next week.  Take photographs of your baking and write a report on Seesaw about which biscuits were the best and why.

 

Remember to do some exercise and keep active.

 

I hope you have a great day!

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

 

Because you are spending more time than usual on a computer, it’s important you still practise your handwriting.  Every Monday I will now add a poem to the website for you to write out in your best handwriting.  If you need extra practice and have access to a printer, you can even print out a version to write over!  Please upload a photograph of your handwriting work to Seesaw before Friday.

 

Today, please could you:

 

  • Complete Day 9 in your Early Morning Workbook
  • Complete the English and maths activities on Seesaw
    • White Rose maths – Calculating perimeter
    • The Journey – Day 10
  • Read chapters 14 & 15 in The Boy at the Back of the Class
  • Log-on to https://www.oxfordowl.co.uk/ and click on “My Class Login”.  Use the username: cookhamrise 5/6 and the password: Owl2020.   Go into the “Extra Practice Zone” for spelling, select Year 5 and play three different games every day this week.
  • Handwriting exercise – The Life-Cycle of a Flower
  • Take a break and watch Bitesize Daily at https://www.bbc.co.uk/iplayer/episodes/p089g0cc/bitesize-911-year-olds

 

Last week, we looked at different music that represents the sea.  Today, watch https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=l0XdDKwFe3k.  Using just your body, or ordinary items around the home, can you create a piece of music of approximately 1 minute in length that represents the sea?  Make sure you keep a steady beat and try to include a repeating rhythm.  If you have access to GarageBand, Audacity or similar software, you could try and record your music and upload it to Seesaw. 

 

Remember to do some exercise and keep active.

 

I hope you have a great day!


Mrs Bond
