Monday 6th April- Holy Week

Good Morning Y5/6,

Here is this week’s work. I have separated into suggested days but feel free to mix it up! I haven’t included Friday as it is Good Friday but the art activity and the Easter quiz might be nice if you wanted to spread things out.

Please let me know if you would like to be part of the Holy Week liturgies, so I can let you know what to do. These will need to be completed Monday/Tuesday so I can send them on for editing!

This week’s project

Write the Easter Story in your own words. There are resources to help you on Google Classroom. I am looking for you to use your best writing skills, think about good punctuation skills and I would like to see some impressive description. There is a basic Google Slides to help you structure your story, but you can change/adapt this or even start from scratch – it is totally up to you! After reading your great stories 2 weeks ago, I’m really looking forward to reading them.

Monday

Y5: MyMaths Multiply by 10 and 100

Spelling Quiz on Google Classroom

Tuesday

Y5: MyMaths Divide by 10 and 100

Wednesday

You should also be doing daily reading, TTRS , Lexia (if you have it) and something physical everyday for at least 30 minutes. Try to get outside if you can, remembering to stay safe.

I hope you all have a wonderful week and I look forward to hearing from you all on Google Classroom.

Stay safe and keep smiling,

Holy Week

Today is Palm Sunday and marks the beginning of Holy Week.  With the reality of not being able to physically spend this time together as a parish and school community, we would like to still bring everyone together as best we can online.  We have a plan for every child who wishes to, to contribute to a liturgy by either pre-recording a reading, or making a picture.  We will then share this with the whole community on Maundy Thursday and Easter Sunday.   If you would like your child to be a part of this, please let Miss Cheetham know on Google Classroom or via email and you will be given further instructions. Most children will be asked to create a picture to be used, this will be specified depending on the number of children who wish to be involved. 

Please note that the video or image that is submitted will be published online, including social media, as part of the Holy Week liturgy for St Wilfrid’s and St Thomas of Canterbury Schools.  By sharing any media, you are consenting for this to be used in this way.  

If you would like to take part, please email Miss Cheetham by Monday lunchtime so I can give further instructions.

Have a lovely day,

Miss Cheetham

Monday 30th March

Good Morning,

I hope you have all had a wonderful weekend. I am sharing all the work for this week today. From the quiz Friday, many of you were happy with daily tasks set and a larger project, however some would like to know what to expect for the rest of the week. With this in mind, I have suggested which activities to do each day and will continue to add a blog daily with these activities. However, all the activities are available all week, so you can pick and choose what to focus on. My advice would be ‘eat the frog’- do the bits you like least first, then everything gets better!

Y5 Maths

Monday: Arithmetic Quiz (Google Classroom)

Tuesday: MyMaths Fractions to Decimals

Wednesday: MyMaths Modelling fractions and percentages

Thursday: MyMaths Frac Dec Perc 1

Project

WW1 project: Use research and knowledge you already have to create a presentation all about World War 1.

On Google classroom, I have included a link to the BBC bitesize page which we have been using in school. Here are some suggestions of things to include: causes; solider recruitment and pals battalions; life in the trenches; men’s role (front line and home front); women’s role (front line and home front). There is also some interesting information about weapons and animals that you might want to include. You might have other ideas to add too as you do your research. I’m really looking forward to reading them on Friday!

Ongoing activities

TTRS battle VS the Y6 class. Battle starts at 9am today and finishes Friday at 4pm. They are already feeling very competitive after we beat them last time. Let’s make sure we win again!

Reading on MyOn. Last week we read for 842 minutes. Can we beat it? Don’t worry if you’re reading ‘real’ books instead- they are just as important!

Something physical. There are so many links to videos you can use including Joe Wicks. Or you could enjoy going for a walk with your family (keeping your distance from others) whilst spotting rainbows or playing in the garden.

The most important thing to remember is to stay safe and keep smiling! If there is anything you need, let me know.
