Good morning. Unbelievably, this is the sixth week of this half term and we only have ten days of learning before the end of the school year. Make the most of today's tasks and the learning opportunities over the coming two weeks. It goes without saying but... please do send us a sample of your learning by the end of each day.

Spellings

As we approach the end of the term, it would be a good idea to revise the spelling lists for Y3/4 and Y5/6. By the end of year 6, most children should be able to spell the words on both lists (as well as many other words using the taught spelling patterns). Look through both lists and choose 5-10 words that you find tricky to spell and have a go at practising these over the coming two weeks. Choose a different set each day and work through the lists at your own pace. Ideally, you could keep looking at these over the summer break so that they are familiar for you in September as well. Use the cover, write, check method for learning the words you are going to focus on each day.

Build!

Good morning and welcome to Friday, which must mean that it's another theme day. Today's theme is build something and Mr Graham has got a creative task for your afternoon's learning which had him raiding his recycling bin for materials. There are lots of things we can all build in our lifetime including positive friendships and relationships. Have a good day and send us your photos of whatever it is that your going to build. Build it up, build it up, build it higher. Build it up, up, up, up, up into the sky!

It's a task that all of you can have a go at and you can be as creative and adventurous as you like. If you have some strong corrugated card, then you could really BUILD BIG. If you don't have any coloured card, then use some card that often comes with food packaging. Finally, send us some photos of your creations!

Today is officially the last day of 30 Days Wild although Mr Graham can’t quite believe that we are at the end of another month. Your task today is to write a ‘wild poem’ to celebrate the end of 30DW using a range of poetic styles. You could write an acrostic poem like Mr Graham’s or have a go at writing a haiku (instructions below). Get your parents involved and make it a team effort. There are some examples of poems by other writers to help you and remember, poems don’t always need to rhyme. Once you’ve written or typed your poem, add some illustrations/clip art/images and email them to us (year5@whiptonbarton.org).

A fact about Tuesday: Tuesday gets its name from the Anglo-Saxon's god of war Tiu, also known as Tyr to the Vikings. The Romans named their third day of the week after their god of war, Mars.

Monday 8th June

Good morning Year 5. We hope that you've all had a lovely weekend and are ready for today's learning. Mr Graham was up with the sun yesterday morning (5:00am to be precise) so he decided to go for a cycle. The roads were quiet and the air was clean and I cycled into and through the city without a single car passing me. The slightly slower pace of life and the quietness of our city has to be one of the benefits of this period of lockdown. Below is a moment of reflection from my morning's cycle.

Information about emailing

Please don't forget to use the new email address year5@whiptonbarton.org when sending your work. It's best to send your work each day so that we can look at it and give feedback. If we receive the work at the end of the week/weekend in one bulk email, it's much harder to be able to give you any feedback, especially if you have struggled with a task.

It would be great to know what you are all reading at the moment so why not drop us an email with your current favourite read? Some of you have been quizzing on Accelerated Reader recently and have either just achieved a word count milestone or you are getting very close. Don't forget that you can also complete books and answer questions on Bug Club so why not have a look at this resource during the week and log yourself on. If you have lost or forgotten your log-in details, email us and we'll get you back up and running - or hopefully reading!

Today's focus is estimating numbers and placing them on a number line. Watch the video below and then choose one of the tasks. On the video, there were two tasks but I've added a third so choose one that is within a familiar range of numbers.

Thundering Thursday! Not quite, but it was a wet Wednesday. Thank you to those who have been sending work to Miss Cordwell and Mr Graham. Our inboxes are still a little empty and there are quite a few children who it would be good to hear from by the end of today - you know who you are. I wonder what villainous vocabulary will be awaiting in today's English? Will you be able to translate today's maths lesson? All will be revealed...

Oh, and email your work to year5@whiptonbarton.org

Each vile villain has created a fact file about themselves! Have a read of the two below. 

Witch's fact file 

Giant's fact file

Main task

Think about what you know about Wolf. I'm sure that you know all about Little Red Riding Hood and those three little pigs! Have a go at filling in the fact file for Wolf (see below). There are videos below telling different stories involving Wolf. You could watch these to help you think of ideas! You don't need to watch them all but you could if you want to!

Fact file - you could print this or just copy out the subheadings. 

Videos:

The willow-wren and the bear

The boy who cried wolf

Ivan, grey wolf and the firebird - WARNING!!! This one is rather long but it is worth a watch!

Peter and the wolf - WARNING!!! This one is also rather long but uses music in an interesting way!

Once you have had a go at thinking of your own ideas, use these words that Wolf used himself and place them under the subheadings you think they go with. 

Finale

Here is Wolf's fact file so you can see how close your ideas were and if you placed his words in the correct spaces!

Today's lesson builds on yesterday's work and focuses on the translation of shapes and points on a grid. Watch Mr Graham's lesson video and then complete the tasks below. There is no need to print the tasks and you can complete them in your maths book as you usually would.

Today will probably be the final lesson on game creation. Mr Graham has really enjoyed exploring this program in Purple Mash and it is a very creative tool with lots of possibilities. Watch today's lesson video and then continue to build your game environment by adding in levels and other features to make your game more playable. If you haven't started the unit, then you will need to watch the previous lesson video first. Open your saved game from the previous lesson and then work on this today. When you have finished, don't forget to save the final version of your game. You can also access the task in your 2Do section.

Tuesday 2nd June

Good morning and welcome to Tuesday's home learning. Miss Cordwell and Mr Graham are wondering if lots of you thought yesterday was a non-pupil day as we didn't have many emails from many of you at all, or perhaps it was a problem with the Year 5 emailing system. Either way, we're looking forward to hearing from more of you today. As Mr Graham didn't get many photos of anyone taking part in 30 Days wild, you've got a picture of his feet in the garden along with some giant daisies. That'll teach you! Once you've completed all of today's learning tasks, don't forget to find today's 30 Days Wild task.
