Thank you for a fantastic year, Year Five

We want to thank you for a fantastic year. We have absolutely loved getting to know you all and teaching you this year, even though it's been a very surreal time. As an end of year gift we have adopted 'Huggy' the Lar Gibbon, from Dudley Zoo, on your behalf.

 

We can't give you a real hug at this time, so felt this was the next best thing. If you happen to go and visit Dudley Zoo, you will see 'Year 5, 5C and 5S 2019-2020- Newfield Park Primary School' outside his enclosure.

 Please see below for further details about 'Huggy':

So for the final time, please see your work below for the last week of this academic year. We have been blown away by the work you have produced and your positive attitudes. We love and miss you all. Stay safe. stay happy and stay strong. We look forward to seeing you in September, as Year Sixes! smiley

Mr. Cochrane and Mrs. Saunders

 

p.s. We'll be announcing the winners of the baby competition, next week, so don't forget to send your entries to newfieldy5@newfield.dudley.sch.uk

House Captain?

Being a House Captain involves the following things:

If you are then you will need to do the following things:

  • Over the Summer holidays, put together a short speech and practise it.

  • Finally, record your speech and send it to our Year 5 email (as above)

  • Due to the guidance, voting will take place slightly differently, this year, but I will speak to you about this when we return in September.

 

Stay safe,

Mrs. Saunders

Easter Break

Happy Easter Year 5! We have been missing you all at school but we are sure you have been working hard over the last few weeks as well as enjoying spending time with your family.

 

We have created a document with lots of activities you could do over the Easter break if you would like to.

 

Don't feel like you have to do everything suggested, they are just ideas you could try!

 

We hope you have a lovely Easter and stay safe!

Our class text at the moment is 'George's Secret Key to the Universe' by Lucy and Stephen Hawking. In the story, we have just read that Eric, Annie's father, saved the children from Outer Space and has told the children they are not allowed to play together any more.

 

For your task today, imagine you are the author and can write what happens next in the story.

 

What will happen? Who will be involved? Where will the events take place? Have fun and be as creative as you like!

 

 

Maths starter

If 40 is the answer, what could the question be?

Make as many as you can using a range of operations etc.

E.G.

2 x 20 = 40

37.5 + 2.5 = 40

For our English task yesterday we wrote the next part of the story from our class text, 'George's Secret Key to the Universe.'

 

Today we are going to look at editing and redrafting a small section/a few sentences from our work to make them as detailed and interesting as possible.

 

If you can, try to use a purple pen/crayon/felt just like we would if we were in class!

 

E.G.

George and Annie stared out into Space.

With their eyes wide and their mouths open, George and Annie stared out into the vast and unknown space all around them.

 

Remember all of the things we can focus on when we edit our work such as:

- Spellings

- Correct punctuation

- Adding adjectives

- Expanded noun phrases

- Fronted adverbials

- Using all of the senses (show not tell)

And many other ways that we have discussed in class. Enjoy!

Go on a 2D shape hunt around your home and garden. Record the object and the 2D shape that is part of it, as well as trying to identify some of its properties and whether it is regular or irregular.

Your English task for today is focusing on the correct punctuation for direct speech.

We have covered this in our lessons, so make sure you remember the key rules regarding capital letters, punctuation and placement of inverted commas etc.

E.G.

"Where on Earth, I mean in Space, are we?" asked George in awe.

"We are on one of the moons orbiting Saturn of course!" exclaimed Annie.

1) George shouted out i want to explore the whole galaxy

2) "How will we get home asked george and annie together,

3) george where are you called annie we need to hurry up

 

Extension:

Create your own sentences based on our class text, correctly using direct speech.

 

Geography

In a previous Geography lesson we located the 7 continents, Equator and Topics of Cancer and Capricorn on a blank world map.

 

For your task today we would like you to research the Equator, Tropics of Cancer and Capricorn and find out what their significance is. How do they affect the weather/climate of the countries situated on or near them?

Your English task for today is focusing on the correct use of semi colons.

We have covered this in our lessons and looked at how they are used to separate related independent clauses.

Re-write these sentences, correcting any mistakes that have been made and try to correctly place semi colons:

1) the comet came racing Towards them so thay was absolutely terrified

2) Cosmos was a computer. he couldn't run after the children to ;stop them

3) Eric was verry cross with The children because; they had ignored his rules for using Cosmos?

 

Extension:

Create your own sentences based on our class text, correctly using semi colons.

 

Maths

Go on a 3D shape hunt around your home and garden.

Record the object and the 3D shape.

E.G.

Pencil case = cylinder - 3 faces, 2 flat and 1 curved, 2 edges and 0 vertices.

 

French

In our recent French lessons we have been looking at vocabulary related to places in town as well as the directions of how to get there and the days of the week that you might you might visit them.

 

Your task is to create a poster/vocab sheet showing the different French words you have learnt, including their English translations too. Be as creative as you like!

As a quick and fun little task today, go through the alphabet from A-Z and try to think of countries from around the world for each letter.

E.G. A=Algeria, B=Belgium...etc.

How many can you think of?

Can you challenge someone in your house to play against you?

 

Art/PSHE

As many of you will have been away from school for a whole week now, why not try to create a poster illustrating the fun and exciting things you have no doubt been up to this week, as well as the people you have been with.

Learning at home!

Even though a lot of you are away from school at the moment, it doesn't mean that you have to take a break from learning, exploring and having fun!

 

As well as the many exciting things we are sure you will already be doing at home, we will also be trying to regularly update our class page with new and interesting activities and ideas of things to try.

 

There are two documents below already with a range of tasks and links to access and engage with at your own pace, but if you need a little more guidance and structure then we will also be giving you daily pointers on things to try!

 

Stay safe and see you all soon!

Welcome to Year 5!

 

Your teachers this year will be Mrs Saunders and Mr Cochrane! smiley

 

Could all children ensure they have the correct PE kit in school each week, ready for our timetabled lessons on Mondays and Fridays as well as any other opportunities to be active during the school week.

 

 

 

 

Geography

 

This half term, Year 5 will switch from their History studies to having a Geography focus. This will be based around London as a globally significant city. During this focus the children will cover the physical as well as human geographical elements of the city. We will also study different types of maps that can be used for a location as well as many other skills and knowledge opportunities.

 

 

 

Homework

 

This year homework will be handed out on a Friday and expected to be completed then handed in by the Wednesday of the following week.

 

Homework will consist of an English based task, a Maths task as well as spellings.

 

Spellings will be tested each Friday.

 

Housepoints will be awarded for completed homework and the children will have the opportunity to display some examples around the classroom.

 

Reading

 

As well as homework, the children will also be expected to take responsibility to change their reading books on a regular basis using the school library.

 

To encourage the children to read regularly at home, we would appreciate it if adults could record, in Reading Records, each time the child has read.
