Welcome to Week 4 of Remote learning! 

We hope you are becoming experts at the multiplication methods and now adapting these to help you solve the multi-step problems. Remember to underline key words to help you work out the steps you need to do. It has been great to see you begin to create your newspapers, which have wonderful names and headlines. Today, we are going to build on yesterday's work to write the main bulk of the article. 

We're so impressed with the quality of work you are achieving - keep it up, Year 5 :-)

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 :-).


Word of the Day:   Illegal 

Look up what the word means, what word group it belongs to and place it accurately into a sentence.


09:45 - 10:30   Mathematics. 

Step 7: Multiply 4-digits by 2-digits 

Today, we’re continuing with our learning on multiplying, by looking at 3-digit numbers multiplied by 1-digit numbers.   

Work through the Friday 29th January – Maths Activity.  

It is really important to watch the White Rose video on the link – this will help with your new learning! 


10:30 - 10:45   BREAK! 

Get outside and enjoy the Winter air. 

Can you create your own mini-fitness programme for outdoors? 

Try star jumps, running on the spot or keepie-uppies? 


10:45 - 11:15   SPaG

Spelling Revision: Special Focus Challenge!  

Work through the given sheet, which we would usually see in our Orange Spelling Book. You may have done this before, but these activities are focusing on words which have unique spelling rules so it’s good to practice.  

Complete the questions given on the sheet

Remember, try some Lexia/Spellzone too!  


11:15 - 12:15   English/Writing. 

Writing the main bulk of the article about the Stitser’s break in.  

Use the sheet attached to create the main bulk of the article, using:

  • the past tense,
  • quotations and
  • description.  

We will write the conclusion and add pictures and captions next week.  


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 :-).  


12:30 - 1:30   LUNCH! 


1:30 - 2:00   Reading Activity. 

Complete the comprehension My Mind.  Answer the questions in full sentences. 


2 - 2.30pm    

Circle Time: What are the pros and cons of social media? Discuss this and record your responses in a table. 


2:30 - 3:20pm Get outside:

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

Go onto the RSPB website to see different ways that you can make bird feeders.  

Join in the Great British Birdwatch

Sit back and see how many birds visit your garden.


Philosophical Question to finish the day! 

Yesterday's Q:  Where were people before they were born?     

Miss Martin:  I think this a huge question! I can only answer the same as Mrs Hudson, however, on this, that our DNA is a big ol' mix of all the DNA from our ancestors before us. 

Miss Chapman:  

Mrs. Hudson: That is an interesting question. I know my son used to ask me this a lot when he was little. Obviously before people come in to the world you spend 9 months in your mum's tummy. But I suppose before that it comes down to the DNA from your mum, dad and all the generations in your family mixed together. Isn't life amazing!


Today's Question:  Should people care more about doing the right thing or doing things right?  

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 :-)
