Hello Year 5s (soon to be Year 6s!)
It's the final week of Year 5! I've attached some learning which is more fun based for this week - similar kinds of activities that you'd be doing if you were in school. I particularly like the pictures from Harris Burdick - they could lead to all sorts of creative and spooky stories!
It's been a funny sort of a year and it's certainly been very strange not being able to see you all and help you with your learning but I hope you've been giving it a go at home. Please keep reading over the holidays - Mr Parkinson has sent an email about how to participate in the Summer Reading Challenge this year which is slightly different as it's all online but details about how to join in are on the 'School Library' page on the website.
Make sure you still follow the Government guidelines to keep yourselves, families and communities safe over the holidays.
Finally, and most importantly, remember to have fun over the holidays! It might be that you're not able to go on 'a proper holiday' this year but I look forward to hearing about your visits to family and friend's houses and maybe even a trip to the beach or just playing in the garden with siblings.
I'm really looking forward to seeing you when we come back to school in September.
TIMES TABLES ROCKSTARS!
We have signed up to Times Tables Rockstars - an online times table programme/app that is really good for developing your times table skills. Every child has their own login (see details in the Maths section link above) - you collect points for completing tables challenges and can use them to personalise your rock star avatar. Play solo or challenge your friends!
SCIENCE UPDATE - Bacteria Experiment update!
Check out the pictures of our science investigation (in the Science section link) using bread to 'grow' bacteria - there are some surprising results so far!
Year Five Home Learning
If your child has been absent this week due to self isolation, please see below for the maths work they have missed.
Please copy the questions on to a piece of paper and complete.
