Year 5 – Wednesday 6th May

Good Morning Year 5

Happy Wednesday – half way through the week already. We hope you’re having a great week so far. This is the last day of specific Year 5 learning for this week. This is because tomorrow you will have a set of jobs to do about VE Day and its importance, then Friday is bank holiday.

Just a reminder that all teachers are training today and tomorrow, so we will be unable to reply to emails until Monday of next week. 

We look forward to seeing you in our class Zoom chats later – you will need a pen and some paper ready for another quiz Guess the Teacher!!

Today you are going to be carrying on with English tasks based upon ‘Tales of the Caribbean’ that you started to look at yesterday. Go though the PowerPoint and have your role on the wall nearby from yesterday, it may come in handy. If you would like to listen to the story again then Mrs Poole’s video is still available on yesterday’s post (using the same password as always). You can choose whether to write or type your character description.

Superb Science

Today we are going to continue to learn about living things, but moving away from animals. We are going to be thinking about plants and their life cycles. As you work your way through the PowerPoint and watch the videos, we would like you to make notes about each section of the the life cycle. We have attached a sheet for you to do this on if you would like, or we are happy for you to choose another way to present it. We will be going into more detail on Pollination and Fertilisation in a future lesson.

We have also attached an outline which you can print off if you would like to or you can draw the outline yourself. Enjoy!
