Daily Reading- 28.04.2020

Today is, once again, a chance for you to spend 15-20 minutes reading your 'Year 5 Recommended Reading' book. Good luck trying to read it by the end of this week!

In addition, I have attached another '60 Second Read' based around our theme of 'World War II' for you to have a try at. Are you finding you are developing your reading fluency?

I attach your 'Emoji Challenge' and, if you are able to get outside today (the weather does not look very good!) have a think about how many objects or items you can read...

This may take some thinking so I will get you started below- good luck!

Collective Discussions- 28.04.2020

I am sure you have heard about the remarkable achievements of Tom Moore and today, your collective discussion question is:


Can you gain the views of your Mum, Dad, Sister etc and stick them in your 'Remote Learning' books? What is your opinion of this- can one person make a real difference? Below are some resources which might help your thinking further- good luck!


'What's happening in the World today'...- 28.04.2020

Punctuation and Grammar- 28.04.2020


For the next couple of days, I thought it might be worth you- the children- showing your parents what some of these 'Punctuation and Grammar' terms mean. I am sure you will have been thinking to yourselves 'what does that mean' and these helpful guides mean you can explore with your children the terms in order to develop your knowledge and theirs. I will post the same activity and resources tomorrow so that you can become a bit more knowledgeable about them, and then see what you have learnt on Thursday. Good luck!

English learning- 28.04.2020

Today we are beginning our new text 'The City of Ember'. I would like you to have a look at the front cover of the book and write about the characters that are shown. Use the information given in the picture to support your analysis.

Think about:

Who are they?

What are they doing?

Where are they going?

Why are they there?

How will they survive?


REMEMBER: Do not research this book before you complete this activity, I want you to use your imagination!

Afternoon Learning (RE)- 28.04.2020

In our RE learning today, we are going to look at the importance of prayer and what prayer is. Start by discussing with someone in your family what prayer actually means. Then, have a look at the prayers attached from various religions and talk them through- what are they trying to teach you. What Christian prayers do you know and learn at school? What do these mean to you? Firstly, you really need to analyse prayer.

Your task to complete is to write a prayer of your own, particularly thinking about where we are in our world at the moment and the circumstances we find ourselves in.
