Hi Emerald Class and welcome to the Summer Term!
It's hard to think that a new term is beginning. I hope you've all been keeping busy and active; the sunshine has been great for getting out for our daily exercise.
It's been lovely to see some of the exciting activities you've been doing on our blog. Have any of you learnt a new skill? Why don't you post some pictures and let us all know? Remember you can also email us using the 2 email feature on purple mash. You can also email each other but all messages will need to be approved by a teacher first.
Well done for everyone who had a go at the Jaguar fact file or the Diary writing on Purple Mash. Have a look on our display board to see some of the fantastic work so far. I'm going to add a few more this week, they just need a few edits, so if you've had a go at these, check back, read my messages and let's get them on the board.
This week I'd like you to click on the links for each subject and have a go at the activities. Remember to check out My home learning day if you want a suggested structure for your day or talk to your grown up about what to do.
Some work is specific to this week or is set individually for you; other subjects are following the next lesson in a series of lessons. Please keep checking in, keep busy, keep learning and have fun!
1. This week I'd like you to have a look at a new book called Daring Deeds on Active Learn. I've allocated it to you so have a look.
There's an activity to do each day so click on the link below and have a go:
You can't write on the screen so jot your answers down. You could email them to me on Purple Mash.
2.Following on from last week, could you continue your diary on Purple Mash. Log in and you'll find it on your To-Do list. Please have a go and keep us updated with all your activities.
3.You will see an icon on our class page called Reading comprehensions. Each week, could you choose 2 to have a go at. The ones you choose are up to you but have a go. Remember to look at the bottom corner for the star rating: Each task has a 1*, 2* or 3* rating. (3* is the most challenging, so choose the level you think is most appropriate to you.)
4.You have been allocated some spelling and grammar tasks on Active Learn. Log in and have a go.
Please use your Bug Club log in to read for at least 30 minutes per day.
Please follow the White Rose maths lesson links. Choose Y4 or Y5 and continue from the last lesson you completed. There will be 5 Maths lessons uploaded each week.
An extra challenge is available for you on our Maths pages. I see Maths offers daily reasoning challenges with a video to watch and a sheet to complete. Just don't peek at the answers on sheet two until you have given the challenges a good go. Maybe try one or two a week.
This week, we have added an update onto the maths pages. If you are in Y4 and found fractions a bit tricky, this is the place for you. If you are in Y5, there is a great sequence of lessons to reinforce those fraction skills.
This half term the Year 4 children are learning about Sound. Check our Science icon for the lessons and work your way through.
For Year 5, your next unit is all about Forces. Click on the Science Icon and have a go at the lessons. Lots to find out and discover.
Don't forget the York leaflet is still available as a challenge to complete. Check out the Sapphire blogs for some great examples of leaflets. This should take you several sessions to complete.
Our new topic for this half term is What's beneath your feet? The first lesson this week is focused on setting things in the right time order and understanding what an archaeologist investigates. We will be adding new lessons to this each week.
Take a look at our projects page to start investigating Judaism.
Time to discuss
Mrs Wilson is posting all the picture news discussions onto the collective worship and discussion pages. This week's picture is focused on what you think travel will be like in the future once all this is over. Have a look at the picture and may be have a chat with your family about their opinions. Or why not check out the Fischy youtube channel. They stream a collective worship every week and all your favourite collective worship songs are also up there.
We hope you and your families are all well. Keep busy and keep in touch everyone. Hopefully we'll be back together again soon.
Mrs McElhattan and Mrs Watkin
