Class 5 Home Learning from 11th May

Hello Class 5,

I hope everyone has had a super week and made the most of the lovely sunshine by learning and playing in your gardens or going for walks or bike rides with your family.

Last Monday, I surprised all our Year 6 children by delivering their leaver’s hoodies – it was honestly so LOVELY to see your smiling faces and hear about the cool things you have been doing over the past weeks. I hope you like them and look forward to seeing you wearing them when we are back at school. Although you cannot all be together, you still look like a pretty cool bunch!

SATS week

Year 6 children – this week was meant to be SATs week. No doubt many of you are delighted that the tests won’t be happening (!) but I know a few of you who were looking forward to them. You all worked incredibly hard towards these tests and I already know you would have done brilliantly. Everyone knows that the most important part of SATS week is the BREAKFASTS…maybe you can talk your parents into treating you to a bacon or sausage sandwich at some point this week…and I’ll treat you to one when we return!

Maths

Well done to those of you who are completing the Demon maths tests – here are the answers to last week’s test:

English

How did you get on with last week’s film writing work on Ruin? If you have done any writing, I’d love to see some! If you haven’t started yet, don’t worry – you can always do it this week!

This week our work is about EXPLANATIONS.

I’d really like you to do your English with a ‘twist’ this week and produce a small film explaining how your family’s lives have changed in these past 7 weeks.

What have been the ‘highs’ and ‘lows’?

Have you learnt anything new about yourself? (new talents, more patience..)

Maybe you have actually enjoyed playing with your brothers and sisters!

Your film doesn’t need to be too long. I would really like your film to be uploaded via Tapestry or to be emailed to me.

If you are unable to make a film, then you could create a cartoon strip, a poster or just some writing.

 

PHOTOGRAPH COMPETITION

The Duchess of Cambridge has launched a photo project (in collaboration with The National Portrait Gallery) to show a snapshot of life in the ‘coronavirus lockdown’ across Britain. I thought it might be something you and your family may like to get involved in.

You can read about it here:

HOLD STILL PHOTOGRAPH PROJECT

Photographic portraits can be on the following themes:

  • Helpers and Heroes
  • Your New Normal
  • Acts of Kindness

One hundred shortlisted portraits will feature in a virtual exhibition on the Gallery’s website and a selection of images will also be shown across the UK later in the year.

The project is completely free and open to all ages and abilities. Images must involve people, and can be captured on phones or cameras. Each image will be assessed on the emotion and experience it conveys rather than its photographic quality or technical expertise. The closing date for submissions is the 18 June 2020.

Don’t forget to share your images on social media #HoldStill2020

GEOGRAPHY

Why not have a look at these activities about map skills in United Kingdom and an activity about the climate in Kenya.
