Summer Term!!

 

Welcome back to school - but not as we know it! Hope you had a safe Easter and are ready for some challenging home learning. 

 

While children are not in school, please find below the work we would like them to complete. We will update this page regularly with further work. We have put details of our topic for the next two weeks which is on The Olympics. The topic will have many great activities to attempt that can be done both inside and outside and cover may subjects across the curriculum. It would be great to see any of the completed tasks so if you would like to you can email them to me at office@churchfield.bwmat.org

 

In Maths and English, we will set daily tasks for the children to complete so everyone knows what the expectation is each day. I will put these up week by week to avoid confusion. Each day is clearly marked so you can see what day you should be learning.

 

Please try and read as much as you can. There are many books available on Amazon to download free. Make a Reading Diary for yourself, so you can see how much you are reading.

  

Children can also access the following websites to support their learning: 

 

Any questions please do ask on the email above and I will do my best to get back to you as soon as possible.

 

Stay safe and indoors!!

 

Mr Sharp

 

 

Week beginning Monday 6th and 13th April 2020

Happy Easter, everyone.

 

Hopefully, you’re keeping all your work in a folder or a book, so when you return to school, you’ll have lots of great quality learning to share with your teacher and friends.

EASTER:

Over the next two weeks, we’ll be focusing on Easter. We would like you to have fun but also keep your learning focus on track.

English/D & T:

Easter Cake:

Find an Easter cake recipe (there’s three to try below).

  • copy it out in best handwriting and decorate it with illustrations;
  • make the recipe, carefully measuring the ingredients, and take a photo of the finished cake;
  • think of an enticing name for your cake;
  • design a box or wrapping for your cake, then make it, carefully decorating it;
  • produce an advert for your cake – it could be a magazine ad, or a web ad or tv (record yourself in the ad)

 

Easter poem:

There are two examples of Easter poems in our resources. Have a good look at both of them, then decide which you like best. Think about why you like this poem. Use this as a guide to writing your own poem about Easter. Things to consider:

  • count the syllables in each line, in your favourite poem. You could copy this;
  • use alliteration, similes or metaphors in your poem;
  • you could use personification (Easter might be a person – what would they see or hear? How would they behave?)

Maths

There are 3 different challenges for you to try – each get slightly harder. Pick a challenge suited to you and go for it!! There is no harm in changing challenges if you are finding it too easy/hard. Each challenge has a variety of Maths problems to solve, each giving you a clue to solve the overall puzzle!!!

Challenge 1 is the Mystery of the Easter Bunny

Challenge 2 is the Mystery of the contaminated Chocolate Eggs

Challenge 3 is a super challenge!! Go on -push your self!!

RE: Why is Easter important to Christian?

  • Read the Easter story – either in your school bible, or research this on the internet;
  • Make an Easter card, remembering to show the true meaning of Easter

Geography:

As a reminder of our Geography work this year, we will revisit Physical Features on Oddizzi. Log onto their web site.

Our class log on: churchfieldwalnut   (churchfieldsycamore)

Password: walnut2018      (sycamore2018)

 

Complete the unit, using the information on the website. You can then complete the online quiz for Physical Features (you will need to use the dropdown menu in Quiz and find your name. Mrs Sturmey and Mr Sharp, can then see your score. Good luck!

 

 

 

 

PE

Continue to stay physically active. Use different youtube videos or go out with an adult for a long walk, or a jog. Remember to warm up properly, make sure you have plenty of space around you, and get other people in your family to join in.

Week begining Monday 30th March 2020

Week begining Monday 23rd March 2020

Regular web resources for online learning

Home Learning Tasks

 

In the event of a school closure, please see  below some learning for the children to access. 

The first file contains some Maths, English and Guided Reading for the children to try. The second has some more practical activities for the children to do.

Additional files will be added as we go forward.

 

Children can also access the following websites to support their learning:

 

Also, our topic this term is Ancient Greece. There is a link to BBC bitesize below and a daily activity sheet will appear on each of the sections.  The first sheet is on Who were the ancient Greeks?  Click on the links to open the web page here and the activity sheet that goes with it (below).

 

Who were the ancient Greeks?

How did the Olympic Games begin?

 

If the children would like to make a poster, artefact or booklet on anything on Ancient Greece. After researching online perhaps they could produce something on the ancient Greek Olympics or a poster on the gods. Perhaps something on the Trojan war or the Greek scientists. It would be great if something can be produced so we could have a Greek museum similar to the Egyptian one we had previously.

 

In the event of a closure - please stay safe and look after each other.

 

See you soon

Sycamore News!!

 

Welcome back!!! That seemed like a very short break!! 

Please can you ensure that children wear school shoes into school. Also please ensure they have their swimming kit for Fridays and bring in PE kit for Mondays.

Homework is due in on Friday 6th March - Reading records on Monday 2nd March, please try and listen to the children read at least 5 times.

 

English 

This week we have been studying Greek myths and based on the Pandora's box myth, the class planned and wrote a shared myth. Ask them about the features of a myth.

 

Maths

 

This week we continued our fractions learning with dividing fractions. The children are finding this quite tricky but showing great perseverance in their learning. I know I always mention this but in order to be successful at Upper key stage 2 maths, the children need to be able to recall ALL of their times tables. Please throw times random tables questions at them all the time - I don't know my 7's/8's/9's is no longer a valid excuse for them to use in Sycamore class. 

 

Art

 

We have been very active this week. Not only have we been swimming but we have had extra lessons in PE to help the school decide who should be the next sports coach after Mr Wright's departure from the school

 

PSHE

 

In PSHE we started our healthy futures course that is being run through our friends at Somerset Activity and Sports Partnership. This week we have been discussing the benefits of exercise and the children attempted the bleep test. After we set some goals for our own personal fitness.

As part of our geography topic we investigated a South American country: Argentina in order to write a persuasive travel brochure encouraging people to visit the country. We studied relative clauses, modal verbs, rhetorical questions and direct address to engage the reader to use in our persuasive writing. 

 

Maths

 

This week we started our fractions learning with equivalent fractions. Now the children are in year 5, the Maths is getting really tough and the children are showing great perseverance. In order to be successful at Upper key stage 2 maths, the children need to be able to recall ALL of their times tables. Please throw times random tables questions at them all the time - I don't know my 7's/8's/9's is no longer a valid excuse for them to use in Sycamore class.

English 

In English we learned about personification, similes and metaphors when describing setting - challenge your child to see if they remember the difference! We are learning all of these new skills to help us write an adventure narrative starting next week. We studied an example text - Floodland by Marcus Sedgewick to spot these skills in action! 

 

Maths

 

This week we have been building on our Area and Perimeter knowledge to investigate how we estimate and compare area and perimeter. Our next topic is Multiplication so it is vital that the crew know their times tables inside and out, especially as we are tackling long multiplication - keep up the good work practising at home and using TT Rockstar's.

Science Week 2019 - The Planets

 

Alien Invasion! War of the Worlds!

We started our Science week by learning that Martians had invaded Britain!!! We then played War of the Worlds battleships using our 2 and 4 quadrant grid knowledge

 

 

 

 

Using information from our research on the NASA website, we were able to measure the distance of the planets to a scale of 30m – we were amazed how far away Neptune was!!!

 

 

In Maths, we used data from the NASA website to solve problems  in teams using our prior knowledge of place value. We then presented the data in line graphs.

 

 

 

In English, we researched the planets and produced Top Trump cards to show our learning. From this extensive research we were then able to produce fantastic Non-Chronological reports on our Solar System

 

 

In our science lessons we discovered facts about the solar system, how the planets move and the moon and presented them in reports with scientific drawings.

 

In Art we produced an adapted version of Van Gogh's Starry night, including sketches of the planets in our solar system.

Next half term (Autumn 2)

 

Our topic is Ancient Egypt. We are holding an exciting day on Wednesday 13th November, where all children can dress up as an ancient Egyptian. We have invited an expert historian to lead the day, and we will learn about mummies, Egyptian gods and much, much more. Voluntary contributions are requested of £4.00 per child to cover costs, and we are anticipating a very exciting learning experience. Photographs will follow...

Weekly homework

 

Each week in Year 5, the children are expected to complete the following homework:

 

- Reading at least 5 times a week. Each week should be recorded in your reading record book. Remember that this can be any reading you choose to do - your school book, your favourite magazine, a sports' website or anything else you are interested in.

 

- Practising your times tables. Each child has a times table book. They should complete one page of practise each week ready for a test on Friday. There are 5 boxes on each page, so practise once a day to keep your times table knowledge fresh.

 

- Practising your spellings. Every week we have a spelling test. Spellings are put onto the website - please practise ready for the test on Friday.

 

Please see your child's teacher if you have any questions about the homework.

Welcome to Sycamore and Year 5!!! The children have settled into their new class very quickly and are already producing some excellent learning. In English, we are reading the Iron Woman by Ted Hughes. Ask them about it! We started our new book by predicting what we think it might be about and how it relates to our Do our decisions matter? topic.
