If you haven’t finished your story, don’t panic! Come back to this powerpoint once you have. 

For most of you, you’re now ready to edit before possibly publishing your work. Please follow the powerpoint below. It is so important you follow the instructions. This means reading your stories through four times: each time you read it through, there is a different editing focus. 

You can then decide to publish it on a word document and email it to us, publish it by hand and send us a photo, or just send us a photo of your edited copy if you choose not to publish. 

We are beyond excited to see what you have produced! 

10 minute test & PE

Complete the next CGP 10 minute READING test carefully in your CGP books. You can then mark it using the answers at the back of the book. If you don’t have it, you’ll need to read for 20 minutes instead. 

Once you have finished, spend at least half an hour doing your favourite physical activity. Maybe set yourself a challenge… what’s the most ‘Keepy Uppies’ with the football can you do? How long can you hula-hoop for? If you’re stuck for ideas, visit these websites to just take part in some fun dances…

Year 5 – Thursday 26th March

Good Morning Year 5!

We hope you are well and have been enjoying the beautiful weather this week. Miss T managed an hour and 10 minutes walk yesterday (and now has blisters). Did anyone else manage a walk?

We have heard from Maddie about another amazing resource that we wanted to share with everyone. Every morning at 11am, David Walliams is uploading an audio recording of himself reading a short story from his World’s Worst Children book, which is available to listen to for free. So if you fancy listening, they will be available from 11am each day at https://www.worldofdavidwalliams.com/elevenses/.

I hope you are still enjoying the Joe Wicks workouts, Miss T had a go at one of his 20 minute work outs yesterday and struggled, so well done for those of you who manage the whole half an hour, you must be knackered.

Hope you have a good day and continue to stay positive and smiley.

Maths – Rounding

Remember your rounding rules from school.  Look at the digit next door to the one you are round to.  0-4 stay on the floor; 5 through 9 climb the vine!  Here is a bitesize link for extra information https://www.bbc.co.uk/bitesize/topics/zh8dmp3/articles/zpx2qty

Here is a link to the questions https://jarauid.exampro.net/ or alternatively you can download below.

 

English –  Rollercoasters

Today, we would like you to think more about rollercoasters than fairground rides.  Take a look at today’s English task below.  If you don’t have access to a printer, you can make notes in anyway you would like to or draw a grid similar to the one on the task.

Topic –  Fairground Food

One of the most important things about a fairground is being able to have something to eat  You might have some popcorn, some candy floss or a toffee apple.  I suspect most of you don’t have the ingredients to make these things but your challenge is to bake some biscuits which may or may not have a fairground theme!  Here is a recipe you can use as basic biscuit recipe but feel free to add different flavours to it depending what you have in the cupboard.

Here are the daily activities for you to complete each day. We have added a handwriting booklet that you could work through very gradually, not in one go. You can either print the booklet, or do this onto paper of your own at home. We look forward to seeing how amazing your handwriting will be when we see your work. The Common Exception Words should also be learnt gradually, by selecting 2 or 3 words a week that you should aim to learn along side your weekly spellings.

20 minutes of reading either a school book or a home book.

Practice your 2,5 and 1o times tables using TTRockstars, or a different method.

Practice your weekly spellings which will be provided below, and the Year 2 common exception words.

Common Exception Words

The-Entire-Alphabet

Weekly spellings- 23.03.20

 

English

In English today, we will be writing a letter to try and persuade the Enormous Crocodile to be a nicer crocodile and to consider being friendlier to all of the little children. To do this we need to be polite to him, tell him what he is doing wrong and make suggestions about what he can do instead. We look forward to reading your letters and will get back to you to tell you how persuaded we are! Have fun!

Remember to practice telling the time using a watch or clock throughout the day. Hopefully you are getting super confident with o’clock, half past and quarter past and to times now. Challenge yourself and try times with 5 minute intervals too! Remember ‘No way through isn’t true!’.

Over this half term, our art work has involved looking at pattern and using our line and pencil work to add texture and detail to our drawings.  Today we will look at the work of Stephanie Troxell and how she shows detail and gives texture to her drawings, helping them to look both realistic and three dimensional.
