I hope you are all doing well and are keeping busy at home. I have been busy at school with my Year 6 group and Mr Corr and I are missing having you all in our classroom every day – it is strange not having you all there!
I just want to say thank you to all of you (and your parents) for all of your hard work you are doing at home. You should be very proud of yourselves for staying motivated and for continuing with your learning whilst you are off school.
Please carry on sending me your emails and pictures of your work – I love receiving them and staying in touch with you. I have posted some of the work I have received down below. If you need any help, have any questions or just want to say hello, email me at email@example.com and I will reply as soon as I can.
Hello Year 5,
I hope you have all had a wonderful half term and enjoyed some of the lovely sunshine we had. I’ve posted new work on the literacy, maths and reading home learning pages and I will continue to update those daily with work for you to do at home. You can also carry on logging onto Education City and Ten Ticks.
Please continue to email me any questions you have or any of the work you have been doing at home – I love hearing from you! I will continue to post some of the work I am sent on to our class page too. As I am back in school full time now, it might take me a bit longer to reply to your emails, but I will aim to reply to you as soon as I possibly can.
If you need me, just send me an email!
Missing you all lots. Stay safe.
I can’t believe how long it has been since we last saw each other and I am missing you all lots. Thank you for working so hard at home and for having a go at the work I am posting on the website and the work on Education City – I am a very happy and proud teacher! Parents, thank you for all of support with your child’s learning at home. I’ve posted down below some pictures of the fantastic work I have been sent over the past couple of weeks.
As the next 2 weeks would have been our half term, I won’t be posting any work on the school website. You can still log on to Education City and Ten Ticks over half term if you would like to and I will leave a list of activities below that you could do over half term if you are looking for something to do. The next time I post work on the website will be the 8th of June. If you need me before then, want to show me what you are up to or just want to say hello, I am only ever an email away (firstname.lastname@example.org) and I will reply as soon as I can. I would love for you all to stay in touch.
Mr Corr says hello and is missing you all. That’s all from me until the 8th June. Until then, stay safe and keep in touch,
Activities you could do over half term:
Log on to Education City and Ten Ticks
Keep yourself active – have a go at some kids Just Dance, Yoga or Zumba on YouTube
Learn to cook a meal (with supervision from your adults of course!)
Spend some time sketching – you could sketch flowers in your garden, birds, your family, your bedroom
Keep a night sky diary. Write about where the moon is in the sky each night, you could draw its shape each day and see if you can spot the brightest star.
Use the internet to find a country beginning with each letter of the alphabet.
Create your own board game
Watch your favourite film. Write about or draw your favourite part of the film or re-tell the story in your own words.
Watch this video on the story of Pentecost. Can you turn it into a storyboard? Could you create a poster all about Pentecost? Could you write a diary entry as one of the disciples all about what happened?
Pretend you are a teacher! Plan a lesson teaching your family all about something we have learnt about in Year 5. You might teach them about earth and space, fractions or relative clauses. You could give them an activity and mark it to check their answers!
Make your own musical instrument using some recycled materials
Hi Year 5!
I really can’t believe it is May already! I hope you are all doing well at home. It was really lovely to speak to most of you when I rang you and your parents earlier in the week – you all made me smile and brightened my day (although it has made me miss you even more!) Thank you so much for all of your hard work at home – you have made me one very happy teacher! Parents – thank you so much for all of your hard work with your children at home, it is very much appreciated.
Although I am really happy that you are working at home, please don’t stress yourselves out trying to do lots and lots of work. If you can’t do something or find something tricky, please do not worry! Doing work at home is completely different to doing work at school – I wouldn’t expect you to get everything right at school, so don’t worry about getting everything right at home! Try your learning in chunks and remember to have breaks and fun too!
Most of you have sent me an email asking for your logins to Education City – thanks to those who have and well done to those who have had a go at a few activities! This is a new website where you can do lots of fun and interactive activities for maths, literacy, reading and science. I have set some classwork on the website which I will change every so often and you can also play all the other activities and games on the website too! Feel free to complete the activities on Education City alongside or instead of the work I am setting on the website – whatever works best for you!
If you need your login for Education City, please email me at email@example.com and I will reply as soon as possible. If you need any help, have any questions, want to send some of your work over or just want to say hello and tell me what you have been up to, just send me an email – I love keeping in touch with you and knowing that you are doing well!
I passed on some of your messages to Mr Corr and he says “Hello” and hopes you are all doing well. I’ll see you on Monday for some more maths, literacy and reading activities. Until then, stay safe and keep washing those hands!
Hi Year 5,
I can’t believe how long it has been since we were last together sharing a bourbon and custard cream on a Friday afternoon after a week of hard work! I hope you are all doing ok at home and are all staying safe. I’m sure you are missing your friends and teachers from school – I am missing you all lots! You should all be very proud of yourselves for continuing to work so hard at home in these strange and difficult times – I am definitely a proud teacher! Parents, thank you for helping your child complete the work I am setting on the website, it is very much appreciated.
There are two new websites which will be great for your home learning. BBC Bitesize are doing daily lessons for each year group for a range of subjects. White Rose Maths are also doing daily maths lessons for each year group. Feel free to use these alongside the work on the school website.
I love getting emails from you updating me on what you are up to at home and I’d love to hear from some more of you, so please send me an email so I can say hello! I will be posting some more amazing work that I have been sent to our class page on Monday so feel free to send me your work over the weekend if you would like me to share it. You could take a picture of it or you could type it onto the email. You can also send any pictures of anything else you have been up to – I’m sure Mrs Shore would like to share some on our school Twitter too!
Mr Corr says hello and is missing you all.
I’m still missing you all lots – I hope you have all been working hard and having fun at home this week! Well done to all of those children who have been working hard at home, completing all of the work on the website and logging in to Ten Ticks – I am very proud of you!
I’ve posted some of the brilliant work I have had this week down below (click on the pictures if you want to make them bigger). If you have done any work or have any pictures of anything you would like me to post, feel free to email it to me! Getting emails from you all really does put a smile on my face and brighten my day.
Stay safe and see you for more online work on Monday,
Hope you all had a wonderful Easter – it’s very strange that school isn’t open for all of you today and I’m still missing you all lots!
I’ve added new work to the maths, literacy and reading pages and these will continue to be updated daily now the Easter holidays are over. I have also added some new topic activities to the topic page that you could have a go at whilst you are at home. Try to do little bits and bobs of work at home to keep your brain active!
Remember to keep reading as much as you can and try to log in to Ten Ticks as often as you can (check the bottom of the maths page for how to log in to Ten Ticks if you can’t remember).
Also check our staying safe page for reminders on how to keep yourself safe whilst you are spending more time at home.
Any questions, if you want to send me work or pictures you have been up to, or if you just want to say hello, send me an email at firstname.lastname@example.org I’d love to hear from you all and stay in touch about what you are up to at home!
I can’t believe we’ve now spent two weeks apart (even longer for some of you!) I am really missing you all and all of our work together – a part of me is even missing marking your books every day! I have been in school this week – it is very strange and lonely without all of you there to make me laugh! I am still hoping we are back together soon, but for now, I hope you are all working as hard at home as you all do at school and checking our class pages regularly for work you can complete. But, I also hope you are all having fun and spending time with your families whilst you are off school.
I have really enjoyed getting emails from some of you with all of the hard work you are completing at home – I’ve put some of the excellent work some of you have been completing (both at home and with me in school) down below to share with you all, I’m very impressed! I would love to get emails from some more of you, whether this is to show me your work, to say hello, to send me photos of what you are up to or you could even write your own letter to Year 5 which I could post on the website over Easter for the rest of our class to see!
I’ve also been checking who has been logging in to Ten Ticks – thank you and well done to those of you who have! You know I spend our maths lessons saying, “You need to know your times tables!!!!”, so it is lovely to see you working on them whilst you are at home.
This will be my last post until after Easter – I will start posting daily literacy, maths and reading work again on the 14th of April, so keep your eyes peeled for that! Over Easter, use the home learning topic page and online pages for some activities you could complete. As Easter approaches, you could also try some different Easter or Holy Week activities – you might create your own Last Supper, retell the Stations of the Cross or create some Easter artwork! Whatever you do, make sure you relax and stay safe (check our our staying safe page for more information on how to stay safe!)
Mr Corr hopes you are all well and is missing you too!
I hope you are all doing well whilst you are at home. I firstly want to say thank you for all of your hard work so far in Year 5 and for being so mature over the past few weeks – you have helped to look after yourselves, your peers and me! It is very strange to not be in school with you all and I’m not sure when we will all be back together – I have really enjoyed all of our time spent together so far and I am looking forward to spending more time with you (you’ll be complaining about Wednesday morning mental maths before you know it!)
Whilst you are at home, try to stay up-to-date with the different Year 5 Home learning pages to try and keep your brains active; try to keep all of your skills up for when we are back together. Maybe spend an hour a day (or more if you want!) completing the activities I post. Try to stay active (try the Joe Wicks PE lessons on YouTube) and read whenever you can.
All of the activities for this week have been posted on the different pages (find links to the pages below) – remember to check out the topic page if you are looking for some other activities you could complete. I’ll be back on Monday morning with more activities for you!
Thank you to everyone who has sent me updates and their work via the class email. This email isn’t just for you to show me your ‘school’ work – if you want to tell me something you have done, send me any pictures of what you are up to, ask for help or if you just want to say hello, don’t forget, I’m only ever an email away! (email@example.com)
That’s all for now, keep safe and speak to you soon.
Our home learning pages will be used to share general resources which the children can access if learning from home. Feel free to explore these links and resources with your child/children. I will update the other pages regularly. Please find below links to the different home learning pages for Year 5- click the page titles to access the website pages.
If you need any clarifications about home learning or your child has forgotten their login for a website or app, please contact me on firstname.lastname@example.org – I will check this email regularly and will respond as soon as possible.
On this page you will be able to find useful documents such as the Year 5/6 spelling list, explanations of different grammar and recaps on how to complete methods in maths which children may find useful to aid their learning.
