Year 5 – firstname.lastname@example.org
Update Friday 29th May 2020
I hope you had an enjoyable week in the sunshine without having to organise your home learning. It will be a bit different this term as I will continue to set work for you, but am going to be in school each day. I will be working with Reception Class for the next few weeks, so although I will try to answer emails I may not be able to do this until break times or after school. You are still my number one class though and I miss not seeing you every day, so please keep me updated with how you're getting on.
Below will be the English and maths for the coming week. I will also provide links to the foundation subjects available from BBC Bitesize which you can have a go at, although these are not compulsory.
Marking and communication
I have been pleased to hear from some of you about how you are finding this new way of learning. I have been working hard to make sure that this work is as easy to access as possible and am taking into account all your feedback. If you need any further resources or support, please do ping me an email.
With this in mind, I just wanted to give some clarification. I would be grateful if parents could mark maths (answers provided online with the questions) and if possible, English work just making sure that the work produced is appropriate for the task required and that spelling and basic grammar are not getting forgotten. This means any difficulties encountered can be identified quickly and any extra support given.
I'd love to see pictures of the work (just the page is fine) to see how well all the children are doing.
Thank you for your continued support
I have written below some information to help you complete this weeks tasks. You should aim to complete one English and one maths task each day if possible. All work should be recorded in your home learning books as neatly as possible.
Spelling will be set , please ask an adult to test you each Friday and send me your results via email. The list of spellings are further down the page.
Week beginning 01/06/2020
Activities will continue to be posted which provide learning tools and activities for English and maths. Please do not print these sheets. All answers should be recorded in your home learning books. Write the date and the name of the task so it is clear. Complete tasks in the order they are provided to you. Sometimes in class we take a few days to cover a topic. If you're finding something really hard then please, with an adult, email me to let me know that either you are going to take some extra time or you need me to provide more resources to help you.
Please use the link below to take you to the BBC bitesize website. There is an English activity for each day focused mainly around different areas of grammar with a writing focus on Friday. Please continue to record this work neatly into your home learning books. The extension activity can be completed if you wish/have time, however this is not expected. There is no expectation to spend longer than an hour on these activities. I am aware some days there are more activities than others, just complete what you can.
Monday- To understand antonyms and synonyms.
Tuesday- To use character development and semi colons.
Wednesday- To describe a setting using subordinate conjunctions.
Thursday- To use fronted adverbials.
Friday- To plan and write a story.
As from Week 4 ( and continuing this week) the maths lesson activities will be on the class web page below. White Rose Maths activities are no longer free of charge. However, Crockenhill Primray School subscribes to White Rose Maths so that we can access the lesson activities for you!
BBC Bitesize and White Rose Maths have now partnered up - additional support and content will link up.
Please log on to https://www.bbc.co.uk/bitesize/tags/zhgppg8/year-5-and-p6-lessons/1 . Watch the videos before completing the White Rose worksheet activities. I have linked the answers below for adults to mark.
