Weekly News 20.3.20
Find out what Year 5 have been learning this week as well as information regarding home learning for the coming weeks.
Firstly, the whole Year 5 team would like to thank you all for your understanding and positivity over what has been a strange week for all of us. The children have continued to remain focused on their learning and their behaviour has been exemplary- we are all really proud of them. This blog will explain what we have been learning this week at school. For those of you who have already begun learning at home, there are attachments of learning we have been completing at school if you wish to use them.
Every child should now also have brought home a pack of learning, this is extra learning for you to complete if you have free time.
From Monday the Year 5 team will update our blogs daily with current activities, videos and much more that can be completed at home. If you have any questions please do not hesitate to email us, it would be great if you kept us up to date with what you have been doing at home with pictures etc!
We would all like to wish you the very best and hope to see everyone soon!
Maths: This week in Maths we have been learning about angles! Can you remember the angle YMCA song? If not click the link: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=2MWYakuD8_k
We measured angles and calculated angles round a point using our knowledge that one whole turn is 360 degrees. Below are some differentiated tasks that could be completed at home.
English: In English this week we have continued to read Wolf Brother. We read up to Chapter ten, from next week Mr Lamprell will be reading a chapter each day! We then created our own action/adventure story with the only rule being that it had to include a wolf! We focused on a range of descriptive techniques such as figurative language, expanded noun phrases, adverbial openers and ambitious vocabulary. We also focused on weaving in action and dialogue during the middle/ problem section of our writing. If you're at home have a go at writing your own action story that involves a wolf!
Topic: This week we have continued our science learning by completing investigations linked to changing states. Have look at this video explaining this: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=wclY8F-UoTE
We investigated reversible changes by heating salt water over a candle. We found that the water evaporated leaving just the salt behind. Click here to learn more about reversible and irreversible changes: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=37pir0ej_SE
Have a lovely weekend!
