Hi Year 5!
We hope you are all well and safe. We have absolutely no idea how it is July already… The past couple of weeks seem to have flown by… 2 weeks left of year 5!
You should know your new teacher for year 6 by now – exciting times! 🙂 How are you all feeling being near year sixers?!
For now however, here is your Home Learning Guidance and materials for the week beginning 6.7.2020 (your penultimate week in year 5!).
Don’t forget, all of our previous week’s home learning guidance is backed up on Google Classroom, you just need to log in with your school email address to access it, or click HERE.
Do feedback any technical issues and we will try to resolve them for you asap!
We will not be giving you a new project this week with their only being 2 weeks left. We know some of you would like to continue with some of the existing projects, or spend some time completing another one based on your own interests.
We have however given you more Science this week.This could form the basis of a new Science based project if you find it interesting.
We have provided the usual resources in the Home Learning files including:
- Overview (timetable ideas and useful links)
- Monday – Friday files (resources specific to that day as per the overview)
- Maths (starters and daily tasks)
- English (useful prompts, word of the week and grammar activities)
- Spelling and Grammar (part of daily tasks or English file)
- Reading (part of daily tasks)
- Classroom Secrets Home Learning Packs (fully differentiated)
- EAL (useful resources for those receiving support from EMTRAS)
- Something a bit different – (exactly that!)
White Rose Maths
White Rose lessons continue to be back to normal this week, with no need for alternate provision. The standard home learning videos on their website are those which you will need to follow for lessons 1 – 4. We have provided you with the necessary materials and a PDF with links to the videos as usual.
Third Space Learning Independent Recap Activities
For those of you looking to give your children extra independent Maths recap practice, we have compiled some activity sheets from a company called ‘Third Space Learning’ who provide ‘Fluent in Five’ which you may already be familiar with. The sheets are comprised of an Arithmetic section, Practice and Challenge. Answer sheets are also provided. Click here or look in the Maths folder to see what you think. There are new sheets for each week and they are available for all year groups.
Don’t forget: you continue to have access to Purple Mash, Education City, Lexia Core 5, Mathletics, Times Table Rockstars, Epic! Books and Discovery Espresso.
If you need any login reminders, just email your class teacher at the following addresses:
You can also ask to be added to our Class Dojo by emailing us at the above addresses where we can answer any support questions (privately or as class info).
Don’t forget to keep checking the website for updates from Mrs Todd.
On a personal note…
I would like to take this opportunity to say thank you for being wonderful year 5. You may have seen by now that I am leaving Ashley Primary School at the end of this academic year – one of the toughest decisions I’ve had to make! Whilst I have been teaching at the school for 3 years, as most of you know, I was a teaching assistant here long before that, first joining Ashley Primary in 2010. It really does feel like I’m leaving family behind and I will miss you all.
It has been a strange few days beginning to sort out my classroom – who knew you could fit so much into a cupboard! I want you to know that you have helped me make some fantastic memories over the last few months, I am just so sorry we didn’t get to end the year together and enjoy cakes and films on the last day.
Don’t forget how amazing, unique and strong you all are. Most of all, thank you for giving me the opportunity to be your teacher and to help you learn. I too, have learned from you all.
I’ll send you a postcard… Now that I can do this Google Meet malarkey, maybe we could have a virtual catch up some day…
Take care everyone and see you soon.
My best wishes and Good Luck in all that you do,
Miss S xxx
We hope you continue to stay safe and well. We are here if you need us. You’ve got this year 5!
Take care all,
Mrs Tuff and Miss Sanderson 🙂 🙂
