Home Learning for Day 1 of Self-Isolation

Maths Home Learning for w/c 23-10-20

Please log onto TTRS at least 3 times this week. I have added a new game to your Abacus accounts to consolidate learning from this week on angles and circles. I will be checking next Thursday to make sure you have played. Try and work through bronze, silver and gold level. There is also an optional sheet below and a video to remind you how to use a protractor to measure and draw angles. 

Thank you.

Reading Focus Target for Week Commencing:  23rd November 2020

 

Focus: Maintain positive attitudes to reading and understanding of what they read by beginning to make comparisons within and across books.

 

Action: Choose 2 different characters in the book you are reading. List the similarities and differences between them.

Reading Focus Target for Week Commencing:  16th November 2020

 

Focus: Understand what they read by beginning to ask questions to improve their understanding.

 

Action: We have been focusing on different types of questions asked in comprehension exercises (literal- questions you can use the text to locate the answers and figurative questions which require you to read between the lines).  This week I would like you to write 4 questions for someone else to answer based on a chapter of your book. You must include at least one figurative question. Remember that figurative questions often start with: ‘Explain…’ ‘Why…’ ‘What do you think…..’

Another Optional Maths Task to Build Fluency

Year 5 love reading and recommending books to one another. Try these ....

We have been learning about how scientiļ¬c evidence is used to support and refute ideas, testing the explanations of Aristotle and Galileo about how things fall.

A very moving 2 minute silence on the front playground. It is always special hearing the names of the men who attended our school and who later died in the war, being read out by Year 6. All topped with a soloist performance of the Remembrance song.
