Year 5 – Tuesday 7th April

Good Morning Year 5 – Happy Easter!

Good Morning Year 5! 

We hope you have been able to enjoy some of the beautiful sunshine over the last few days. The weather forecast for the next two days looks particularly amazing so if you can do it safely, why don’t you try and spend some time getting some fresh air? Remember to apply your sun cream though – Mrs Poole and Miss Thomas both got a little bit burnt on Sunday as they didn’t realise how hot it really was!

Each day of the Easter holidays, we are going to pop up to say hello, share some of our Easter craft with you and also maybe share a joke or riddle with you too. Have a look at the riddle below (you will need your usual video password) – if you think you’ve solved it, email in your answer!

We hope you enjoy the things that we share with you. Remember all the ideas are optional, just some activities you could do if you would like to join in. 

Remember to keep emailing us too at year5@stmarksce.org.uk. Miss Fowler and Mrs Poole will be replying to you this week and would love to hear from you.

Ongoing Weekly Activity Ideas

Yesterday, we posted some ideas of activities that you could complete this week. Here is a little reminder of our ideas:

  • Baking – Can you bake a cake or pancakes?
  • Design an egg – Could you draw one on paper or maybe even draw on a real one?
  • Egg and spoon race – Who wins out of your family? Let us know!
  • Make a card – Could you maybe send it to a friend or relative that you are missing?
  • Have an egg hunt – Can you write some clues to go with it?
  • Make an obstacle course – Could you add exercise challenges too to each station? 
  • Research some Easter jokes – If you find some really funny ones, can you email them to us? We might pop some on our website!
  • Make an Easter game – What might the prize be?
  • Code breaker (on yesterday’s post) – If you completed the quiz, can you make your own?

Easter Craft Example

The teachers are going to be completing some of the activities this week too. Mrs Poole had a go at decorating an egg. She used sharpies to draw on an Easter bunny themed pattern. 

Can you decorate an egg too? Send us in your pictures!

Year 5 – Monday 6th April – Easter Holiday

Good Morning Year 5!

Welcome to your Easter Break, I bet you all are ready for some rest and relaxation. Since Christmas you have worked really hard, both at school and at home, making your teachers and family extremely proud of you. Well done!

Although this holiday may come with some disappointments of missed holidays or feelings of frustration about not being able to see your friends and family, try not to let it get you down. Remember to try and stay positive (even when it’s tricky) and think about the wide range of things you can do at home to keep you entertained.

We know that it can be tricky to think of things to do when you’re stuck at home so we wanted to help. We have found some activities that you might like to do at home for fun. Below we have listed some of the different ideas of activities that could be fun to do throughout the holiday. We will give you some ideas today, and then some more next Tuesday. This will replace the daily jobs we will set you. You do not have to complete them, but it is completely up to you whether you want to complete them or not.

If you have a great activity idea that you would like to share with other Year 5 children, just send us the details in an email to year5@stmarksce.org.uk and we will try to add it to our webpage. We would also love to see what you get up to, so please get in touch and share with us.

At the very bottom of this webpage, there is a leaflet linking to wellbeing, which you or your parents might want to take a look at at some point.

Well done to those children who contributed to our fantastic victory against the Year 4s on TT Rockstars. There were 22 children who helped towards our fantastic victory – so a massive thank you to those children.

Have a great day today and we all hope this is the start of a very happy Easter holiday for you and your families.

The Year 5 Teachers

Easter Fun Activities

Below is a list of things you and your family may want to do, but remember that they are optional, 

  1. Baking – If you have the ingredients, why not have a go at baking an Easter Cake, some pancakes or the well loved cornflake cakes.
  2. Design your own egg – Draw an egg on paper or decorate a hard boiled egg using coloured pens.
  3. Egg and Spoon Race – Why not use hard boiled eggs or Easter eggs to have an egg and spoon race.
  4. Making an Easter card – Why not then send it to a family or an old peoples home. Cards are a good way to make people smile.
  5. Have an Easter Egg Hunt – If you don’t have Easter Eggs, why not draw some and then hide them around the house and garden for you or your family to find. 
  6. Set up an obstacle course – In your home or garden, why not create an obstacle course and time yourself and your family and see who can get the quickest time
  7. Create some Eater jokes
  8. Create your own Easter game – This could be a board game or an outside game to play with your family.
  9. Crack the Easter Code Breaker – See document attached below

We are going to be holding a photo competition over the two weeks of the Easter Holidays!!

We would like you to take an Easter PhotoThis could be something that represents Easter, or something that links to Easter in some way. Once you have taken your photo, send it into year5@stmarksce.org.uk. There will be a prize for the winner when we get back to school, and the top three photos will be posted on the year 5 webpost on the first Monday back after the Easter Holidays. We can’t wait to see them.

The End!

Year 5 – Friday 3rd April

Good Morning Year 5

 

We hope you are well this Friday morning, its our last day of learning before the ‘Easter Holidays’.  We know that the Easter Holidays are going to be very different to usual this year, so we are going to provide some Easter activities for you to have a go at each Monday of the holidays, but they are purely ideas. You can choose any that you may want to do, but if you don’t want to then you don’t have to.

Don’t forget that today at 11am 5GP will be having their Zoom class catch up and at 3pm 5T will be having their Zoom class catch up. Ask your parents to check their emails regarding how to join, remember 5F will be having theirs soon.

Today is an important day!!! We are in a TT Rockstars battle against Year 4! Between 9am and 3pm today, we are going to be in competition with Year 4 to see who can get the most right answers . We need to go online and play as much as we can throughout today to beat Year 4!! We will let you know who wins on Monday. Come on Year 5 – WE WILL WIN!!

Another well done to all of you for your Millions stories. All 4 teachers are incredibly impressed by what you have written and we are all extremely proud of all of you. Please keep sending them in for us to read if you haven’t already.

Enjoy you’re last day of work before the Easter Holidays.

English/Art

We have been so impressed with your Millions stories, you all worked extremely hard and your stories are fantastic.

So today, we are going to give you the chance to design your own front cover for your story. 

Front covers show the main parts of the story and the main characters. Think carefully about your story and what you could use from it to put on your front cover.

Miss T has done an example front cover for you, unfortunately she didn’t have any coloured pens or pencils, so hopefully yours will be a lot more colourful than hers.

Once you have finished them, please send us a copy. We love seeing your work!!!

Science

Today we are going to finish our learning on Forces. We are going to learn about levers, gears and pulleys.

Read through the PowerPoint and watch the different videos on the links.

The End!

Year 5 – Thursday 2nd April

Good Morning Year 5!

We hope you didn’t pull too many April Fool jokes on your family yesterday. 

Well done for finishing your Millions stories yesterday. Thank you so much to those children who have sent them over for us to read. We have really enjoyed them and are really impressed with what we have read so far. We can’t wait to read more so please keep sending them in to the year 5 email.

We have something exciting to tell you about. Us Year 5 teachers have been really missing you all recently so we thought that we would like to get as many of us together as possible. Therefore, we are planning class video chats soon with as many members of each class as we can. This will be using an app called Zoom. 5GP are going to have a Zoom video call tomorrow at 11am and 5T will have a video call tomorrow at 3pm. 5F will be very soon, but we don’t have a set time yet. We will email your parents the details of how to log in for the chat. If we have time we will try and do a true or false European Countries quiz. For this you will need a piece of paper with true written on one side and false written on the other. We are really looking forward to seeing as many of you as possible.

We really hope you can join us for these catch ups, and we will make sure to plan a 5F catch up soon. Keep up the hard work.

  • Describe the main characters
  • What happened in the story
  • Your favourite part
  • What could be better about the story
  • Is there any similarities to any other books?
