Hello Year 5,
Hopefully you gave yourselves a bit of a break last week, got outside and enjoyed the beautiful weather we have been having. Well done if you completed any of the tasks on last week's mat - remember to share your efforts with us using firstname.lastname@example.org - we love seeing what you having been getting up to!
There are so super pieces of work to get stuck into this week; from outdoor art made from natural materials to learning the story of the Trojan Horse and making your own model. We are really embracing the natural world as we begin our life cycles topic in science with a look at the life cycle of a flowering plant. Alongside this, the whole school task will have you searching for evidence of animal life in your own homes! Get those magnifying glasses out!
There is also an exciting new story from J.K.Rowling for you to read online called The Ickabog. She will be publishing several chapters at a time over the next 7 weeks in an effort to get us through the next part of lockdown.
Remember that the work on the mat is a guide and completing the tasks and earning your 20 stars should be enough to keep you learning. However, if you want to do more then the Oak National Academy lessons are also worth a look.
White Rose Maths and MyMaths
We have had a few enquiries about where to find the worksheets for these lessons. Please select the White Rose Maths tab on the right to find all worksheets and answers from week commencing 4.5.20 up to this week. As the work on White Rose is mostly revision of what we have covered in school at the moment, we are using MyMaths plus some other challenge materials to introduce topics not yet covered in school. At the moment, the focus here is measures, and in particular length. Please encourage your child to complete their MyMaths tasks - we have noticed a significant drop off rate with the use of this.
Also, for those of you who completed the braille investigation from before half term, please find the answers below.
