Wednesday 29th April
Good morning class
Well the weather has definitely changed I was so cold yesterday, I sat working with a blanket on and big fluffy socks. I hope the sun comes back soon.
I have been thinking hard about my random act of kindness, so I think I am going to leave a thank you note on our letter box to say thank you to our postman who is out working everyday and putting himself at risk to make sure we get our letters and parcels. I also thought about my mum and dad who are stuck at home and have had to miss their holiday to Dorset, so I have bought a card that sends them a big hug through the post (a bit like the ones you made last week). I want some videos or photos of what you have been doing this week to make someone smile.
Today's work starts with Maths, it is the same format as always. We have practiced this before, however, it is a bit trickier. Remember, the decimal point doesn't move, so use this as your guide for place value. https://whiterosemaths.com/homelearning/year-5/
Summer Term – Week 2 (w/c 27th April) - Lesson 3 - Adding decimals with a different number of decimal places.
For Guided Reading, we are going to continue looking at Chapter one of 'Private Peaceful', it is a slightly different format but just the same skills. Retrieve a fact, give an impression and find a piece of evidence. I have done the first one as an example. Monday and Tuesday's work will help you. I have attached the text again but it is the same as yesterday so you shouldn't need to print it again.
English is the same as yesterday, try the Spag questions, then see what you know and what you don't know. Find out what you don't know on the BBC Bitesize pages.
For Topic, I found this on BBC Bitesize and I thought it ties in nicely with some of the work on the Topic Grid (check the Topic folder if you have lost yours). It is about the World, where the oceans and continents are and how to read a map. We have used some of these skills before when we learnt about Antarctica, Rivers and right at the beginning of the year when we read 'Flotsam' and looked at the pollution in the oceans. It will help you with the work on Food Miles and on different eco systems around the world. It is really interesting, I wonder if you can find all the places we have learnt about this year? - Pacific Ocean (garbage island for 'Flotsam'), Baghdad (city study for Ancient Islamic civilisation), Lebanon (Oranges in No Mans Land) and Norwich (Floodlands).
It would also have been singing assembly today and I definitely know the choir children will want to keep their beautiful singing voices. Have a look at this website again and see what songs have been added since last week.
Did you know? Singing is known to release endorphins, the feel-good brain chemical that makes you feel uplifted and happy. So get singing and start smiling.
Have fun, take care of yourselves and don't forget your random act of kindness.
