Year 5 20.04.20

Welcome back all of you - it's hard to believe we are now in your final term of Year 5! I hope you've all had a relaxing break and made the most of the lovely weather we've been having, and are feeling nice and refreshed to get started again with our online learning. 

This term our topic is 'Blast off – a journey into space!' - please let me know if you have any ideas for learning within our topic, as you would if we were in school, and we can try to fit them in.

This term years 4, 5 and 6 are going to be working collaboratively on topic activities. We appreciate how difficult it is for parents trying to home school and work from home, sharing technology etc., therefore we thought it would be helpful where there are siblings if activities were the same and could be worked on together, when it is most suitable for you.  As always, feel free to work through the tasks set in whatever order works best for you.

Tasks will be available on Google Classroom from 9am, with full instructions and any resources you might need

Maths - finding fractions of amounts
Literacy - SPaG revision

(for the week)
Health and Well-being - create a yoga routine. Keep a fitness diary.
ICT - Online safety
Humanities - timeline linked to space
Science and Technology - keep a moon diary
Music - see assignment on Yumu

I would also like you to spend at least 10 minutes per day on j2blast to really become confident with your times tables - this can be practising, live challenges, or a mixture of both. It's great to see that lots of you have been on since last week, and I'll be interested to keep an eye on who's taking top spot on the leaderboard!

Please also continue with daily reading - at least 10 to 15 minutes a day ideally. This could be a book, a magazine, a newspaper or even a website such as Newsround.

Keep sharing your learning with us, it's great to see how you're getting on
