Good to be me parade  - Friday 24th May 2pm on KS2 playground.

“My Home Town” – home learning task

Where we grow up plays a huge part in our lives – shaping who we are, what we do, who we know and where we go! For your home learning project for ‘Good to be Me’, over the course of Term 5, we would like you to create something that tells us all about what ‘My Home Town’ means to you. This home learning can take any form – there is no right or wrong way but you can be as creative as you like!

PE is every Wednesday afternoon. Please ensure children have the correct PE kit in school.

Year 5 children are expected to read for at least 10 minutes every day and hand in their reading record daily.

Learning this week:

In our English lessons, we have focused our learning on poetry. We identified the features of a poem and then deepened our understanding of The Lady of Shalott by applying reciprocal reading skills. In our writing, we wrote a narrative of the poem. We focused on ambitious vocabulary choices and included various forms of figurative language and challenged ourselves by including imagery.

Our maths learning has focused on converting between fractions, decimals and percentages. We have also been taking on the Mastermind challenge and working hard to improve on our previous score.

In topic, our learning has progressed onto the digestive system. We recreated the system by mixing food and drink then squeezing it as though it were in the stomach and large intestine. The outcome wasn’t pleasant!

We have also continued with learning our Judaism. This week we explored Bar Mitzvah and experienced a synagogue and the practices that take place within it.

 

Home Learning:

 

What does ‘Being Healthy’ mean?

Focus on:

Nutrition – making healthy lifestyle choices and eating a balanced diet

Personal Hygiene – Keeping our body clean

Disease – preventing the spread of infection

There is no right or wrong way to complete a Love to Learn task! Please be as imaginative or as creative as you would like! Love to Learn tasks should be returned on the Wednesday following them being set. Whilst books may not be formally marked, in class we will spend time looking at and enjoying what everyone has learned at home and rewards and house points will be given!
