Happy Friday, Year 5! Almost at the end of Week 3! yesyes

Are you proud of your potion advert once it finally all came together? We saw awesome creativity with some of the potion ideas that you came up with - if only they really did exist! 

We hope you feel like you've had a successful week, Year 5! Take a moment to reflect on what you've enjoyed and what you may have found more challenging? What could you do differently next week? 

Keep uploading your work on Tapestry. We love to see it. 


09:00 - 09:45: Class Daily Zoom Session! 

It's been lovely to have so many of you join us for the calls so far. Make sure you have a paper and pen ready for the session, to make notes of key learning points and to be able to join in with the tasks :-).

Break-In at the Stister's Laboratory!  

Read Chapter 20 from the Potion Masters. 

  • Draw what has happened in the Stister's laboratory. 
  • Brainstorm keywords from the text to describe what has happened. Try to use some of our WoD: ampoule, vial, putrid, substances, filing cabinet, paper strewn everywhere, glass, putrid air, festering smells, crushed glass. 

P.131 has a really detailed description of the mess! 

  • Write a paragraph describing what has happened. Imagine using all your senses to describe the sounds, smells and sights! 


12:15 - 12:30   Class/Own Book.  

Like we would in class with our class book, spend some time quiet reading or listening to the class book. The teachers have uploaded videos of themselves reading different chapters on Tapestry, so be sure to check :-).

1:30 - 2:00   Reading Activity. 

Read the comprehension about another famous scientist, Albert Einstein, completing your answers in full sentences.

What would you do without social media? How long can you last without technology? Can you keep yourself entertained without them? Look at the Circle Time sheet


2:45 - 3:20pm   Get Outside!

Even though it is Winter, it is vital you get some fresh air and exercise for your physical and mental wellbeing. Try one of the activities on the sheet over the next few weeks. 


Check out the RSPB website! 

Scroll down for a whole list of activities to do outside. Maybe you could identify birds from your window if it's too cold? 


Philosophical Question to finish the day! 

Yesterday's Q:  Can we have happiness without sadness?   

Miss Martin: Unfortunately, I don't think we can have happiness without sadness... If there were no moments of sadness, you wouldn't be able to fully appreciate the happier moments and see them as something more positive and different. 

Miss Chapman:  Sadness and happiness complement one another, feeling sad enables you to move onto happiness. Without the feeling of being sad - what would you feel instead for example if you lost something or someone? 

Mrs. Hudson: It would be nice to think you could, but I do agree that sadness makes you appreciate happiness more. 


Today's Question:   Is it more important to be liked or respected? 

Spend some time during dinner or at some point in the evening, discussing this with the other people at home! We're sure there will be some interesting responses :-)
