Week Beginning 25th January 2021

Home Learning Monday 25th January 2021

 

Happy Monday Year 5,

 

I hope you all had a fantastic weekend. Can you believe we are already in week 4 of our lockdown learning? I was able to give out so many Dojos last week which was great. If your parents haven’t already joined our class please remind them to so that you can keep up with how you’re getting on. If anyone needs me to re-send the link do let me know. Here are your new learning tasks for the day - I hope you enjoy them.

 

Work hard,

Miss Stephens

Reading

 

Make sure that you are reading your book of choice for at least 30 minutes. I would like you to summarise what you have read in 10 words.

 

Remember to complete those Lexia minutes – I will be handing out dojos.

 

I will also be setting you a comprehension task to complete on purple mash. Make sure you read the chapter carefully before attempting to answer the questions. I am looking to see who is getting 5 out of 5.

 

Writing

 

Sentence stacking day 5! Please use the link to the document below to help to you to complete your sentence stacking. Remember that you need to be changing the bits that I have highlighted in yellow using either your own ideas or my suggestions to help you. Write your completed plot point by hand then take a photo and post it either to the English blog or the year 5 email. I want to see beautiful handwriting and accurate punctuation. Remember to read back over your work.

Hello Year 5,

Verse 1:

When the rain is blowin' in your face
And the whole world is on your case
I could offer you a warm embrace
To make you feel my love
When the evenin' shadows and the stars appear
And there is no one there to dry your tears
I could hold you for a million years
To make you feel my love

Hello Year 5,

 

Thank you to those of you who made it to the zoom meeting yesterday. Unfortunately, our numbers were down slightly so do make sure that you remember to attend every single morning. We still haven’t reached our target of 100% attendance – maybe today will be the day? Lots of you were handing in all your 2Dos yesterday which was excellent- it’s lovely to see that you are trying so hard and it doesn’t go unnoticed. Remember to maintain those high standards at all times, I know that you can do it!

 

Work hard and have a lovely day

Miss Stephens

Distance from the earth:

Length of its year:

What type of planet is it?

How many moons does it have?

Any other interesting information:

 

We will be sharing fact files at our zoom meeting on Thursday morning so make sure you have your work to hand with you. I look forward to seeing your lovely work and finding out lots of interesting facts. You can use the following link to find some of the information that you will need.

Art

Today I would like you to use your research that you did on Viking shields to design your own. Your shield should look like a traditional Viking shield so make sure you think carefully about the following:

 

What shape should your shield be?

What colours were traditionally used?

What designs/patterns were traditionally used?

What parts do you need to include?

 

Make sure you take your time with this and label each part of the shield carefully. If you have the materials to at home you could even try to make your shield. Your shield could be made out of cardboard and your boss could be made out of tin foil. Don’t forget to make a handle for you to hold your shield by.

 

What do you think went well with your design?

Is there anything that you could have improved?
