HOME LEARNING FOR SELF ISOLATING PUPILS

The Summer Reading Challenge is back - please can you join it.

The Summer Reading Challenge was launched last week and is obviously in a different format to normal as libraries remain closed.

This year it is a digital format where parents/children can sign up online to complete the challenge between now and September.
 

6.7.20 (Term 6 Week 6)

 

Hello to everyone,

You have two weeks left in Year 5 and then you will be Year 6.  Time is flying by and September will soon arrive.  Please keep going for the last few weeks - it will be worth it and you will be ready for the challenges of Year 6.

 

This week, we continue our theme 'Keep Fit and Carry On'. We will be continuing our science topic, and this week I want you to investigate gestation periods (length of pregnancy) for different animals. Did you know that an elephant is pregnant for up to 22 months?  Which other animals will you find out about?

 

In English, I would like you to write a sort story based on the short film 'Broken' - the link is in the weekly overview document.  The characters in this film are Rock, Paper and Scissors! You can write in 3rd person or write from the point of view of one of the characters - it is up to you.  I have also included a story toolkit and an example of a story set in a forest.

 

DAILY:

Please write out spellings and choose 2 words to put into 2 high level sentences:

 

Group A – National Curriculum word list revision (Y3/4)

Group B – National Curriculum word list revision (Y5/6)

straight

necessary

strange

neighbour

strength

nuisance

suppose

occupy

surprise

occur

therefore

opportunity

although

parliament

thought

persuade

through

physical

various

prejudice

DAILY: reading (20 minutes) ideally with an adult.  Please record daily reading in your reading record book (or in the back of your isolation exercise book).  Talk about the book, what has happened and discuss the meaning of any new words you come across.

You may want to start a list of these 'golden words'. 

 

 

DAILY: complete maths set (documents below) and spend some time on Times Tables Rock Stars.  I have included the White Rose planning document on our page to help you if needed - it is useful if you need help with the maths content. This week we complete 'Summer Block 5 - Volume'. Please look at the White Rose daily questions set (and answers are given).  I have also included some work on negative numbers for revision.

 

NO PRINTING OUT IS NECESSARY - JUST RECORD ANSWERS IN YOUR BOOK.

 

Please refer to the learning overview and all supporting documents below.  Good luck and just try your best.

 

Love from Mrs Snowden
