Hello Year 5 or 'Konnichiwa' as they say in Japan.

We hope you enjoyed delving more into the history of the Ancient Egyptians yesterday afternoon, learning more about what their daily lives were like! Which 2 areas did you focus on? Did you know that the Ancient Egyptians actually invented toothpaste?! 

Also, did any of you check out the website for World Ocean Day? We tried out some of the yoga & it was very relaxing! Definitely missing being able to travel that little bit further & see the ocean... 


As always, we will follow the normal routine that we would cover in school! 


 Word of the Day: Archaeologist.  

Look up what the word means, what word group it belongs to, place it accurately into a sentence and work out what prefixes/ suffixes could be added (remember this last one doesn't always count!).

Read your book for 15mins or more.

Remember the poem 'If' by Rudyard Kipling from yesterday? Complete the Comprehension Sheet in the resources!

10:30 - 10:45: Break/ Snack/ Exercise. 

Have a snack and try to get some fresh air if possible. 

Cricket: How accurately can you throw a ball? Using a ball (or rolled up scrap paper) make 3 targets. These could be with tubs, bowls or chalk circles. You could give each target points. So the further away it is, the more points you get! 

How many points can you score?


10:45 - 11:15: SPaG. 

Practise your new spellings for the week! Can you learn them in a new way? 

Look at your New Spellings Sheet!

Try to get some fresh air if it is safe and appropriate to do so.


1:15- 1.30: Quiet Reading Time:

Today, you're looking at the importance of Fasting and what that means to Muslims. Work through 'RE - Lesson 7 Task Sheet'. This is the fourth Pillar of Islam: Sawm. You will then research two of the religious festivals in Islam which focus on fasting and the commitment this shows to Allah.

Yesterday's Q: What is there not enough of in the world?

Miss Martin: For me, the first thing that comes to mind is kindness. Don't get me wrong, there are lots of examples of it that are happening, but recently in the world there have been too many incidents where I think, if kindness had been shown to everyone, as much as possible, we wouldn't be facing them. And it doesn't cost anything! My mantra is to always be kind, even when you find it really hard to be (that's when it's most important!). 

Mrs. Hudson: I agree with Miss Martin about kindness. The time to stop and stare and just feel happy being, rather than rushing about. I think lockdown has given us time to do this. I hope it continues. Valuing everyone in our
