Welcome to Week 4 of Remote learning! laugh

We hope you enjoyed watching the chemical reactions yesterday. Bicarbonate of soda and vinegar is great when it fizzes. We have enjoyed reading your diary entries too. Poor Gordy, how is he going to un-blotch his dad? 

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:   Depressant 

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 5: Multiply 2-digits by 2-digits 

Today, we’re continuing with our learning on multiplying, by looking at 2-digit numbers multiplied by another 2-digit number.   

Work through the Wednesday 27th 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

Flipchart PDF – Direct and Indirect Speech!   

Look through this page of information before you get started – they are some useful videos to watch too!  


Look through the slides for Wednesday 27th January – look at the example text and work through the questions. Make notes on the information about direct and indirect speech if necessary. Have a go at the given task.

Remember, try some Lexia/Spellzone too!  


11:15 - 12:15   English/Writing. 

Do you ever read a newspaper?  

Watch this short video that will remind you of what is in a newspaper. 


Before we start writing our own newspaper articles about the shocking Stitser’s break-in, we need to remind ourselves of what makes a successful newspaper write-up.

You have had a chance during the reading sessions to read different articles. Now you are going to identify the features of a report.  

Look at the attached sheet and colour code the features. 


Read and look through some newspapers or magazines if you have some at home or look at this Newsround article:  


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 newspaper reports. Read the article Up Close with Sharks.

Answer the questions in full sentences. 


2 - 2.45pm    

RE:  Today we look at Mother Theresa. We are thinking about the justice and fairness and how Jesus teaches this.  

Look at the attached worksheet for further guidance!  


2:45 - 3:20pm

PSHE: We have examined legal drugs and stimulants and the effects on the body. Today we are looking at illegal drugs and their effects. Complete the cartoon spotting the different drugs, sort the names of drugs in to legal and illegal drugs, read the information sheet, then complete the gap fill section. Your word of the day work will help you.


Philosophical Question to finish the day! 

Yesterday's Q:  Should Governments penalise people for unhealthy lifestyles?     

Miss Martin: I completely agree with Mrs. Hudson. Otherwise, where is the right to choose? People need to make their own decisions about how they want to live their lives, but they need to be informed as best as possible and know what is best for them and what might not be quite so good!  

Miss Chapman: We all have a choice, what some view as a healthy lifestyle is unrealistic for others. There needs to be an accurate portrayal of what an unhealthy lifestyle looks like  - it isn't just one thing. Likewise, with social media and adverts; they portray an 'ideal of a healthy lifestyle' which has been commonly been photographically altered and, in my opinion, isn't an achievable healthy lifestyle.  I feel it is the governments responsibility to provide equal opportunities to allow everyone to lead a healthy lifestyle. Some view that the 'healthier' options be it food or activity tend to be the more expensive or less accessible option meaning it isn't always the most viable. In answer, no penalisation just education. 

Mrs. Hudson: No, I think it is up to the government to educate people about what happens if you have an unhealthy lifestyle. People should be supported to learn how to cook cheap, tasty, nutritious meals and exercise more or in fact just enjoy moving. Then it is everybody's choice.   


Today's Question:  How does gravity work? 

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 :-)
