Year 5 Home Learning

Welcome to the Year 5 Home Learning Page!

It’s such a shame we can’t see you right now because we had to close the school for a while. We would really like to stay in touch with you and want you to keep working hard. Each week, on this page, you will find new learning activities for you to complete at home. Try and do as many as you can-we know you can do it! Also, don’t forget to look on the ‘Homework Websites’ page for lots more fun, learning websites.

Keep working hard, we are proud of you!

 

Mrs Broughton, Ms Wardle and Miss Kaphuka

The Year 5 Team

Home Learning w/c 20th July

 

Hello everyone!  This will be the last update for a while as it's almost the summer holidays.  Thank you to everyone who has been working hard during the lockdown period and while you have not been able to come to school as normal.  We can't wait to have everyone back in September!

This week we have attached letters from each member of staff to welcome their new pupils.  If you have collected your school report, you'll know who your new teacher will be.  Why not read their letter and see what you can do over the summer to help get ready for coming back.

If you have not collected your school report, you still have time to do so.  They can be collected from Bobbersmill before the end of term, otherwise they will be given out when you return in September.

We have also added a message of congratulations from Office Chohan to the DARE page.

Take care over the summer and relax, making sure you are ready for hard work in the autumn term.

Mrs Broughton, Ms Wardle and Miss Kaphuka

Home Learning w/c 13th July

Hello Year 5, 

From this week, the work we send home will be a little different.  Each week we will upload work to the web site that we have been using to teach the year 5 children who have been in school.  As before, where possible we will provide answers too.  Try to complete as much of it as you can – we will try to label worksheets as ‘circle’, ‘triangle’ and ‘square’ so you can find the work for your level.  Remember you can send messages and/or copies of your work to your teachers using year5@berridge.nottingham.sch.uk .

Miss Kaphuka’s stars of the week are Faria, Simra and Zaynah. They have been working hard this week completing the work that is online as well as creating their own Fantastic 3D lizards! Zaynah also sent in some wonderful art work using leaves! Well done girls- Keep up the hard work!

Ms Wardle would like to say a big thank you to Amina Shan for sending in her home learning and a massive well done to Daniel and Ahmed for their DARE graduation work. She would love for you to get in touch and let her know what you've been up to using the year 5 email.

There were no messages from 5B, though it has been lovely to see some of you back in school.  Come on 5B, drop me an e-mail!

 

REPORT COLLECTION

Year 5's can collect their school reports tomorrow Tuesday 14th July from the Bobbersmill Hall between 10 and 11am.  With your reports, there will be a welcome letter from your new class teacher.  How exciting!  Your parents can collect reports for any brothers and sisters at the same time.

 

DARE GRADUATION

Thank you to those of you who took the time to produce work for our DARE Graduation.  We have added this as a section on the year 5 page.  Check out everybody’s super work!

 

Maths

We have been focusing on basic arithmetic.  The questions are set in three levels, each one a little bit harder than the previous one.  You can answer all of the questions or just find the level which matches your ability.

This week it is addition and subtraction, then word problems and reasoning questions which apply your addition and subtraction skills.

 

Reading

There are two reading comprehensions you can try:

There is an extract from Animal Farm by George Orwell. First, there is a word crunch.  If you don’t have a paper dictionary, you can always use an online one instead to check the meaning of words you don’t know.  Then, choose a set of questions to answer based on your reading ability.

The other word crunch and comprehension is about a pirate called Black Beard.

 

Book Study – Journey by Aaron Becker

We decided to do a book study for the other lessons.

This week we are just looking at the first page of the book.

Lesson 1 – Open the first page image.  Study it closely.  Can you see the girl?  How is she feeling?  How do you know?  What evidence is there in the picture?  Repeat this for the other characters in the picture.

Lesson 2 – Write a diary.  Choose one of the characters and put yourself in their shoes.  Write a diary entry from their point of view.  We suggest 4 paragraphs – one for each of the characters.

 

Grammar

There are some grammar and punctuation practice activities for you to complete.

 

Spellings

As you have completed the weekly spelling lists, now is the time to look back and revisit some of your old spellings.  Do you still know how to spell them?  Why not ask a family member to give you a test?

DARE Graduation - Year 5's work following completion of the DARE programme. Well done to those who contributed.

What super singing! Why don't you join in with the DARE song?

YEAR 5 GRADUATION

Message from Officer Chohan …………………….

Hello 5B, 5K and 5W

I hope you enjoyed the DARE Programme as much as I enjoyed teaching you all

We learnt about respecting others, you looked at risks and consequences when you helped the Dare Crew (Emila, Jackson Naz, Lucas Jacab and Hana) make good decisions when they had to deal with various situations they found themselves in…… so Well Done!

In helping the Dare Crew you learnt how you too can stay safe and healthy by assessing the risk and consequences of your behaviour, and how to make safe and responsible choices.

During the Programme we also learnt about communication and listening skills and how this may help when you are feeling under pressure or stressed and the importance of getting support.

You all worked very hard throughout the Programme and some really good questions were asked throughout the programme both in lessons and each week in the DARE Box, I have enjoyed looking at the work that some of you have done some really excellent work so again well Done Year 5!!

I am so sorry that I am unable to give you your Graduation Certificates in person as everyone of you worked hard and it has been my pleasure to meet you. The DARE Books are for you to keep and refer back to so have a look at them when you can get them.

I hope you have a great summer and that you look forward to being in Year 6 in September 2020.

Well Done on Graduating.

Officer Chohan

Creative Task - Make a 3D Lizard

Home Learning w/c 29th June

Hello Year 5, 

Rather than tell you what we have been busy doing, we are going to focus on giving a ‘shout out’ to those who have sent work into school, either in person or via the e-mail address year5@berridge.nottingham.sch.uk.

'A massive well done to Sumeyya who handed in her work to school this week. It's been great to see all the hard work you've been doing whilst at home. It has also been great to receive emails with completed work from Oliwia, Zaynah and Faria this week. Simra, Michelle and Zaynah also sent in their wonderful DARE posters! Keep up the hard work girls! It would be great to see some work from the boys in 5K this week! If you have done anything to do with the DARE programme you can still send your work in to year5@berridge.nottingham.sch.uk please remember to include your name and class in all emails you send as we have received some emails with some fantastic work but we don't know who they belong to.'  Ms Kaphuka

 

Ms Wardle would like to give a big shout out to Tefani, Daniel and Ahmed who have done some amazing home learning this week. Well-done Tefani who has completed lots of home learning. She loved the video Daniel made performing the DARE song and pictures of his DARE booklet. Ahmed has been busy finding out about the Mayan gods and sent her the research he has been doing as well as lots of creative writing he has been doing. She would love to see more work from 5W and looks forward to reading your emails.

 

‘It was really lovely speaking to some of you this week.  I was blown away by Hassan’s eagerness to complete a subordinating conjunctions activity; it is super that you’re continuing to work hard.  It was also great to hear that Connor had been keeping himself busy with school work, including practising arithmetic and reading.  Keep it up!  I would love to hear from more of you. You can email me on year5@berridge.nottingham.sch.uk.  I’d especially love to receive your contributions to the DARE programme graduation page.  See last week’s web update for details. Hope to see you soon.’ 

Mrs Broughton

 

This week’s work is below.  Try to complete as much of it as you can.  Remember you can send messages and/or copies of your work to your teachers using year5@berridge.nottingham.sch.uk .

There are no new spellings, so there are none attached. Why not look back and revise words from previous weeks – they are still on the website.

 

Another activity you might like to do is the Black Lives Matter 500 words writing competition being organised by Virgin Radio https://500words.me/  Follow the link for the full details.

 

Bye for now.

DARE Graduation

Instead of topic work, we'd like you to focus on producing a piece for our DARE graduation.  This can be a poem, a rap, a video of you singing the DARE song or a poster about the key messages you have learnt.  Files of the words to the song, the music and the DARE booklet are attached under Home Learning w/c 22nd June.  E-mail your creations to us on year5@berridge.nottingham.sch.uk.  We have had some super entries, but would like even more!

DARE GRADUATION

 

Dear Year 5,

 

Due to the school closure, you were unable to finish the DARE programme in class.  So you don’t miss out, we have scanned the final pages of your DARE booklets to complete the activities at home – see below.

 

Also, you will probably remember that we were planning a Graduation ceremony and performance of the DARE song.  As we are unable to do this, we’d like to create an online graduation page.  To contribute to this, please make a poster, a video of your dance or rap or even a poem and submit it to us via email.  We will then add it to our DARE GRADUATION section to celebrate your important learning. Remember to make a special effort on this as we intend to publish your work online.

 

To remind you of the song and lyrics we have also attached links below as well as the scanned pages of the work booklet.

 

You will also receive certificates to show that you completed the programme.  These will either be sent home, or will be waiting for you when you return to school.

 

If you have not already completed feedback on the DARE programme, please do so by clicking here:   https://lifeskills-education.co.uk/resources/the-dare-primary-programme/dare-25-student-feedback-form/

Topic work - The Maya

If we had been at school, we would have been learning about the ancient Mayan civilisation.  The Maya were a very interesting group of people.  Your task is to research as much information as you can about them

e.g.  where did they live?

when did they exist?

what did they invent?

what did they eat?

how did they count? (were there numbers the same as ours?)

When you have gathered the information, why not present it in a powerpoint or make a Mayan facts booklet or poster.  We'd love to see what you can find out. 

Home learning w/c 1st June

Here is this week's work for you to try as well as messages from your teachers.  Remember you can get in touch via mailto:year5@berridge.nottingham.sch.uk to let us know what you've been doing to keep busy.  We'd love to hear from you.

More learning opportunities…

This week’s work contains spellings and an arithmetic paper as usual. However, as a change, we’d like you to look at the BBC’s Bitesize daily lessons for a whole host of activities to keep you busy.  Since 20th April, they have published a set of lessons for every school day.  Each day there is an English, a maths and another lesson for other parts of the curriculum e.g. history, geography, science.  Lessons are published by year group, but there is no reason you have to stick just to year 5. 

Have a look and see what you’d like to learn about: 

https://www.bbc.co.uk/bitesize/dailylessons

If there is a lesson which you particularly enjoyed, please get in touch and recommend it to your classmates: year5@berridge.nottingham.sch.uk  Also, if any of you wrote a story from last week’s work, why not send it in to us? We’d love to read it.

  • Home learning activities

We have also had a letter from the Lord-Lieutenant of Nottinghamshire to thank all of you for the hard work and commitment to learning that you’ve shown while learning from home.  His letter and a certificate for you are attached; you might want to print your certificate at home if you can.

Finally, please remember to put your name and class in your e-mail if you contact us on info@berridge.nottingham.sch.uk about the work you've been doing.

Hello year 5,

Below is a message from teachers, who are missing you very much, news about our Easter 'competition', links to some fun ideas and some homework if you want to keep your learning going over the Easter period.

 

Easter 'Competition'

Although we're not in school, we'd still like our Easter 'competitions' to go ahead. However, this year they will just be for fun. 

You can create an Easter bonnet, Easter scene or decorate an egg using whatever you have available at home - remember, don't go shopping; stay safe!

You can send us photos of your Easter creations to info@berridge.nottingham.sch.uk

As all photographs will be uploaded to the website, only include yourself in the picture if your parents are happy for you to be shown.  Make sure your name and class are included in the email; your name will not be put on the website. 

Have fun!

 

Hello 5K,

I hope you are all doing well and are keeping safe! I miss seeing your wonderful smiley faces every morning, hearing your funny stories and seeing some of the fantastic artwork that you do at home.

Keep working hard on the work set weekly. Make sure you are all reading your books, practising your spellings and doing some of the challenges on the website. Also, try and make sure you do some form of exercise each day. I have been doing PE with Joe Wicks on YouTube every morning and its been really good fun!

Just a quick reminder, if you gave me your parents email address for Get Epic Reading, make sure you speak to your parents to check their junk folder in their email accounts just in case the Epic link was accidentally sent there. Its lovely to see some of you have been on and are reading lots of books. 

Take care and continue being superstars!  

Miss Kaphuka 🙂 

 

Hello 5W,
It has been very strange not seeing all of your smiley faces for a few weeks so I just wanted to say a great big hello and give each one of you a virtual big tens 🙌 for doing your home learning challenges and being a great support to your families. Keep checking the website for more things to do and have a good Easter holiday. Have fun, stay safe and remember to be kind.
Ms Wardle

 

Hello 5B,

How I am missing you all!  It's great to be able to keep in touch through the website and to say hello to you all.  I hope you have been able to keep yourselves busy.  I have taken the opportunity to tidy up my garden and have enjoyed doing some exercise following along with online routines.  It's also been good to have time to read and I look forward to hearing which fabulous books you have read when we get back to school.  Did you see the photos I posted of our caterpillars and butterflies?  They might be visiting your garden or back yard by now, so keep an eye out for them.  Until I message you again, look after yourselves and your families and stay safe.  You could also take a look at some of the links and activities that will be posted on here.
