Hello again Emerald class
Can you believe it's nearly May! It's great to hear from more of you this week. I check the blog and emails every day so keep letting us know what you've been doing and showing us your work. I hope you've all been keeping busy and active; isn't it great how much spring sunshine we've been getting?
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 Diary writing on Purple Mash. Have a look on our display board to see some of the fantastic work so far. If you've started one, have a look at the comments, they just need a few edits and let's get them on the display 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!
This week I would like you to work through these 3 tasks:
I'd like you to have a look at a the next section in our book: Daring Deeds (Nanuck's Tale Part 1) 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:
If you are struggling to open the workbook link, just click on the English icon on our Class page and you'll find the work there.
You can't write on the screen so jot your answers down in your exercise book from school. You could even email a picture of your work to me on Purple Mash.

4.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.
5.You will see an icon on our class page called Reading comprehensions. Each week, could you choose one 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.)
6.You have been allocated some extra 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. This is the last week that the sheets are free to access.
Your parents have been sent a link to an ebook called Power Maths Summer Home Edition. There are 40 lessons in this book. Some of them recap learning we have covered already in Textbook A or B, others are new lessons. Work through in order doing 1-2 lessons a day to keep your maths skills ticking over. It is also available to buy on Parent Pay.
For extra challenges, use the I see maths challenge resources.
Please can you have a go at Lesson 1 on our Sound topic.
Please can you have a go at Lesson 1 on our Forces topic.
If any of you want a whole host of extra activities, click on the Science Icon and have a go at the activities. 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. You can email them on purple mash or post them on the blog.
Our new topic for this half term is What's beneath your feet? The second lesson this week is focused on finding out about cave art and having a go at creating some of your own cave art. I'd love to see some pictures up on the blog or you could email them to me on purple mash.
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 video games. 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.
