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!!

 

Mrs Sturmey

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 beginning Monday 23rd March 2020

Regular web resources for lots of learning ideas

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

PARENTS AND FRIENDS ALL WELCOME TO OUR STORY-TELLING CAFE

Year 5 Story-Telling Cafe

Cafe - 2:15-3:00pm Thursday 30th Jan

Homework - Getting Ready for our Cafe!

 

This week, we would like the children to make cakes, cookies or biscuits,(or buy some, if you're too busy) to sell at our Story-Telling Cafe. Please send in on Wednesday or Thursday. Thank you for your support.

Week 3:

Wow! We're in week 3 already, and have learnt so much in our Geography and Science lesssons about OUR WONDERFUL WORLD OF LIVING THINGS. We have studied the water cycle and how rivers affect the landscape and our lives, and we have begun to study living creatures, including how food chains are crucial to life on Earth.

 

Our class text is The Last Wild by Piers Torday, and is a fascinating dystopian novel about a boy, Kester who can speak to animals.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

OUR WONDERFUL WORLD OF LIVING THINGS

In Spring 1 Term, we are learning about living things and their habitats, in UK and in South America.

In our writing, we will learn:

  • how to describe settings with more descriptive language, including using comparatives and superlatives;
  • how to increase sensory vocabulary to reflect the mood; and
  • how to use pathetic fallacy to greater effect.

 

We shall also revisit

  • how to use similes and alliteration to make our writing more interesting;
  • how to include synonyms to avoid repetition;
  • how to use fronted adverbials to show time, place and purpose;
  • how to write non-chronological reports to give information on rivers, mountain ranges and volcanoes;
  • how to write explanation texts, to describe a process, such as the water cycle.

 Homework

 

It's really important to make homework fun, so the school has invested in Spelling Shed, TT RockStars and My Maths, to help support learning at home. Please make sure you log in regularly to these three websites and practise spelling and maths skills.

Spelling Shed

Egyptian Exhibition

A big thank you to all parents and friends who visited our exhibition. Children made a terrific effort to produce beautiful artefacts, and it was also a good opportunity to show our Science Week work (War of the Worlds). 

Ancient Egypt/Science Week exhibition

 

Year 5 would like to invite you to their Ancient Egyptian exhibition on Tuesday 7th January at 2:40pm. The home projects have been amazing so far! For those that still would like to contribute something to display,  you can still bring your artefacts in up until the morning of the exhibition. We hope to see you then. 

EGYPTIAN PROJECT 

 

Please produce a piece of artwork or writing for our Egyptian Exhibition for you parents. You could make a pharaoh's head-dress, some coins, a cartouche, or produce a written piece about something you are particularly interested in. You have a lot of freedom to choose how you present your work, and you can use the internet for ideas. Hand in your project by Monday 16th December, as the exhibition will be sometime in the final week of term.

Week ending Friday 29th November
 
English 

In English we have been studying non-chronological reports so that we can produce our own. This week we have focused on planning our own on King Tutankhamun. We worked on a sub heading each in teams and presented out findings to the rest of the class. Then using the knowledge from all the groups we have began drafting our Non Chronological Reports.

 
Maths

 

This week we have been working on our squared and cubed numbers - challenge the children to tell you the difference!

 
Art
This week we have been using our perspective knowledge to paint a scene of the River Nile from Ancient Egypt. The children are looking forward to showcasing these in their exhibition.
Week ending Friday 22nd November
 
English 

In English we have been studying non-chronological reports so that we can produce our own. This week we have focused on our shared report on Ancient Egypt - next week we are looking forward to researching and writing our own on Tutankhamun

 
Maths

 

This week we have been working on our factors, prime numbers and multiples. Ask your child to tell you the difference between the three different sets of numbers!

 
 
Geography

 

We have been using atlases, websites and our own knowledge to accurately pinpoint countries, cities and features such as rivers and mountain ranges on maps of the UK and the world

 

Art

 

This week we designed our own book corner based on the book we are about to start reading: The time travelling cat by Julia Jarmen. We are looking forward to reading this and our own books in our newly decorated book corner.

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.
