Welcome to the last Year 5 Class Page for
this school year!
We would just like to take this opportunity to say thank you to you all for all of your hard work during these somewhat challenging times. We are so, so proud of each and every one of you. We have absolutely loved teaching you this year and were very sad that it was cut abruptly short in March by the pandemic. However, you have all been amazing at keeping us up-to-date with your work, adventures and achievements – it has kept us busy but we have loved having the contact with you.
Have a wonderful summer holiday. Please stay safe and enjoy a few weeks off before you start back in September as Year 6! We know you will be fantastic in this role and enjoy all the responsibilities and opportunities that it will give you.
If you would like to contact either Mrs Taylor or Mrs Hudson, you can use the following email address:
If you would like to contact Mrs Lloyd or Miss Owen please use the following one:
We have left some of the activities and links from previous weeks in case you would still like to have a go at them.
Daily Maths Practise.
Follow this link to complete the Bronze/Silver/Gold/Platinum morning maths. Each day there is a different set of challenges. Just do the tasks set for that day. You can find the answers there too!
Here is the statutory list of words for Year 5 and 6.
All About Me
This week the work we have set is all about you! We thought it would be a really good idea for you to write a bit about yourself so that the Year 6 teachers, Mrs Lloyd and Miss Owen, will know a bit more about you.
Work your way through the different activities throughout the week. If you are not in school, you may like to email us your work or drop it into school so we can pass it over.
Here is a summer-themed booklet of activities for you to work through this week. It has many of the key concepts we have learned this year in maths.
If you would like a further challenge, here is the Year 6 booklet.
Please keep practising your times tables on Times Table Rockstars. There are so many of you doing so well on the school leaderboard, it would be fantastic to keep this going.
As with the maths this week, here is a summer-themed activity booklet for you to complete.
Again, we have uploaded the Year 6 booklet below if you would like a further challenge.
Water Mills and Marshes
For an update on the water parsnips, watch the video below sent from Natasha from the Water Mills and Marshes team.
For Week 9 and the last of the posts, it’s a great topic – Ghosts, Myths and Magic of the Broads National Park! WMM has teamed up with Weird Norfolk and artist Jazz Owen of Norwich University of Arts, who allowed them to use her stunning pictures based on the various tales – so do have a spine tingling look.
This week’s Activity is all about writing a ghost story based in the Broads National Park.
We’ve been hearing a lot in the news about the ‘Black Lives Matter’ campaign and protests but what is it all about?
Watch the clip from Newsround to find out more.
This has meant that we have heard the term ‘Wind Rush Generation.’
This clip from Newsround explains it.
The Windrush Powerpoint explains a bit more.
Now, if you would like, you can complete this A memorable Journey activity about the Wind Rush Generation.
Blue Peter Badges
Blue Peter have recently launched their 6 Badges of Summer challenge. We have been so impressed with all of the things you have been doing at home these last few weeks that we think that every single one of you would be able to earn at least one of the badges on offer. Everything you need to know is in the following links:
For those of you who have been in school, you have already started to think about which badge to apply for and may have started your application. If you have a picture that you would like to send in with your letter, email it to the class email address above and we will print it off for you to enclose in your letter.
It would be fantastic to see you all in September wearing one!
Cambridge Science Newsletters
Continuing with our topic of blood and the circulatory system, follow this link to the BBC bitesize website. There are a few short clips to watch and two activities to complete at the end.
This term, our topic in science would have been blood. We would have been learning all about the changes in the human body as we grow, the functions of the heart, blood vessels and blood and how diet, exercise and the way we live can affect our life span. Follow this link for an online lesson to watch. Below is a worksheet to complete.
The lesson is called Animals including Humans circulatory system.
Follow this link for another lesson to watch about our topic of blood and the circulatory system.
**WARNING THERE ARE REAL ORGANS IN THE CLIP** but it is a really good watch!
Make your own model of Macbeth’s castle.
If we had been in school, Mr. Stannard would have rejoined us and would have been teaching you. As that cannot happen, we have been in contact with him so he can set you a challenge some weeks that you may like to complete.
This week, as part of our work on Macbeth, you could create Macbeth’s castle using junk materials you have at home.
If you would like some inspiration, you could use this site.
Do send us a picture of your work so we can share it on our class page!
The Broads Authority is running a “Broads in Miniature Competition” until June 24th with a chance for anyone to win a Broads Goody bag and Columbia voucher.
See this link for more information.
For this week’s art activity, you will need tin foil. The challenge is to create tin foil sculptures and aliens. Some of you who have been in school will have already had a go at this but why not have a go at creating a tin foil wizard to link with our English work.
You can use these links to help you.
