Welcome to Week 5 of Remote learning! 

laugh Positive Mental Health Week! yes

This week we have lots of activities planned as we keep positive all the way through Lockdown 3. 

Remember though if you do have any worries, to get them out of your head, by chatting to someone or writing them down. If that doesn't work trying doing something different, such as drawing, listening to music, dancing or kicking a ball. 

What positive thought did you take from yesterday? It would be lovely to hear some of these positives on Zoom!laugh

You are doing so amazingly well with your Home Learning and we are so proud of you.

Moreover, 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:  Mindful 

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


09:45 - 10:30   Mathematics. 

Reconsolidate Steps 5 -7: Multiply 2, 3 or 4-digit numbers by 2-digit numbers.

Today, we’re going to spend some time reconsolidating the areas of learning we have looked at in the last few lessons.  

Work through the Tuesday 2nd February – Maths Activity. 

It is really important to RE-WATCH the White Rose videos on the link – this will help remind you of what to do with the formal written method. 


10:30 - 10:45   BREAK! 

Get outside and enjoy the Winter air or try relaxing and moving with 

Cosmic Yoga: 


10:45 - 11:15   SPaG

SPaG – Vocab Ninja: Conjunction Malfunction!

Remember, try some Lexia/Spellzone too!  


11:15 - 12:15   English/Writing. 

How could you make your article look like a proper newspaper report?

Think about the reading comprehensions that you did last week. How were these newspaper articles laid out? 

You are going to write up your full, draft article, improving it as you go, but make it looks like a proper newspaper. So, make:

  • The headline stand out (try out bubble writing or capital letters!). 
  • Add your by-line (who is the article by?)
  • Remember the 5Ws (who, what, when, where and why). 
  • Add the main information about what happened with quotations and facts. 
  • Include your conclusion (summary and questioning what will happen next). 
  • Add in photos/illustrations and captions. 
  • Can you write it in columns? 

Remember to check:

- Punctuation! (Speech marks, commas, brackets, dashes, capital letters and full-stops). 

- Subordination (when, if, although, even though) 

- Amazing descriptions of the crime scene! 

We look forward to seeing this on Tapestry! 


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. 

This week we are focusing on Positive Mental Health activities. Complete the second part of the Mental Health comprehension. Keep the text for tomorrow too.  

Use the sheet or make a note in your book, completing the positive thought diary.


2 - 3.20pm Science

Reversible and Irreversible Changes:

What has happened to your salt water solution? Note down any changes in the results! 

Watch this introduction to irreversible changes (weirdly, Mrs. Hudson features in the video, but may look a little different - that's lockdown for you!). 

Check this out too! 

Today on Zoom, please bring a piece of toast! 

Complete the sheet - Reversible and Irreversible Changes.

Then, complete the sheet about mixtures involving Irreversible changes.     


Philosophical Question to finish the day! 

Yesterday's Q:  What makes you unique?   

Miss Martin: Well, being unique is that there isn't a single person out there who has the same genetic make-up as you! That's pretty incredible... You may have similarities with other people but there's there's only ONE you! That's incredible :-) Everything about you makes you unique... Likes, dislikes, hobbies... :-)

Miss Chapman:  Being unique means one of a kind or unlike anything else. I'm sure many staff could say my eating habits in general make me unique. Apple segments dipped in marmite, not liking foods on a plate to touch, putting salt on everything, not liking food hot, disliking cake, eating cold spaghetti hoops (out of the tin - Ms Flaherty was mortified!)... need I say more? 

Mrs. Hudson: Ummm! Miss Chapman and Miss Martin have hit the nail on the head! It's wonderful that we are all unique and different. I think my dodgy sense of humour- my husband has just agreed with that , but with a groan which was disappointing!surprise

Today's Question:  What makes you feel happy?  

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 :-)
