Thanks to Miss Copley for creating this week's Science quiz. 

 

Friday 17th July 2020

Hello Year 5. Here we are then, the last day of term and what a strange term it has been. Who would have thought this time last year, when you were preparing to meet your new class, that the year would end this way?

 

I'd like you to take time to reflect on the past school year. I wonder what you were hoping for in Year 5. What were you looking forward to and did you have any concerns or worries? Did you get to live out some of the things you were hopeful for? Did your fears amount to anything? I wonder what you would tell yourself now.

 

When you return to school in September, everyone will be back and it will be wonderful to slip back into the routine of school and friends. Some things will be different. Everyone will be very careful about hand washing and keeping ourselves and each other safe.

 

Some people will have left - as you know some of the adults, including me, are moving on to new and exciting adventures. There'll be new adults to meet too and quite possibly, new children.

 

Imagine that time travel is possible and write a letter to yourself in July 2021. Tell yourself how you're feeling now and describe what you're looking forward to. Share some of the things you're not looking forward to, too.

 

If you really don't enjoy writing, why not draw a cartoon strip or a picture, giving the same information? You could make a poster. The important thing is that you make a note of your thoughts and feelings now and keep them. In a year's time, you can look back and remember how things were and think about what has changed. 

Maths

During the summer, take a few moments to dip into Mathletics and also Times Tables Rock Stars - just to keep your brain ticking over.

 

              

 

 

Did you make your cheesecake yesterday? I popped in to Mr Newman's and Miss Flisher's classes and saw the delicious puddings being made. I hope you enjoyed yours as much as the children in school enjoyed theirs.

 

Back to school in September

You can check term dates for the next school year here. Remember, if you haven't received a letter (or email) to say which class you are in from September, your parent must contact the school as soon as possible. Some of you have been invited to meet your new teacher next week - check your appointment time. If you are in Heron class you won't have an appointment as in order to keep you and us safe, your new teacher, Mr Biddlecomb, can't come in to meet you yet. 

 

Have a wonderful summer.

Thursday 16th July 2020

Hello Year 5. Thursday already - my goodness how the week has flown by! How are you? You should all know by now which class you will be in next year and if you are in Goldfinch or Redwings, you will have been given an appointment to meet your new teacher next week. If your adults haven't had this letter, please ask them to contact the school office as soon as possible.

 

AWESOME

The next AWESOME by Matthew Syed chapter looks at accidental practise. This is really interesting. Download the PowerPoint (or PDF) and the sheet that accompanies it.

 

 

 

Maths

If you have completed the multiplication and division questions that I posted for you yesterday, log on to Mathletics and Times Tables Rock Star. It's really important to keep practising your times tables and I would recommend that you log on every now and then over the summer so that you don't lose your incredible skill. Times tables knowledge is vital in Year 6!

Cooking

Earlier in the week, I shared a shopping list with you for ingredients for today's baking: here's what you need to do.

 

No-Bake Cheesecake Recipe

 

Makes 1 20cm round cheesecake

 

110g Digestive biscuits

50g Butter

25g Brown sugar(optional)

350g Soft Cheese (Full fat)

75g Icing Sugar

​Optional fruit/flavourings

Baking paper

 

  1. Line the base of your tin with baking paper and grease it well to ease removal. Butter works well as a grease.
  2. Crush the biscuits until fine crumbs (I like to put them in a plastic food bag, secure the end and smash them with a rolling pin). Add sugar if using.
  3. Melt the butter and mix well in to crumbs.
  4. Press in to bottom of tin and chill in the fridge while making the topping.
  5. Mix the cheese and icing sugar (and any other flavourings) until fully blended.  Note - if using a flavouring that is liquid or has a lot of juice eg strawberries etc, add extra icing sugar to stiffen mixture.
  6. Spoon on top of base, smooth and chill to set.
  7. Add your favourite topping. I love slices of fresh strawberries and kiwi on mine.

 

Delicious!

 

Gardening

Have you been in the garden? Our Year 5 pupils in school have dug over the allotment - it looks fantastic. They are busy planting vegetables ready for when you all come back in Year 6. How exciting!

 

Have a wonderful day today. Tomorrow is a half day for our children at school so everyone will receive a little less work - it's also the last day of this very unusual term.

Wednesday 15th July 2020

Hello Year 5 - Happy Wednesday! I hope that you are enjoying your last week of home learning. I wonder how you found the AWESOME work yesterday. Today's lesson includes the word neuroplasticity : don't be put off by this word, read it slowly and enjoy the shape of it in your mouth. The PowerPoint that accompanies the session will explain what the word means and will teach you how it applies to you.

 

Have you been able to go shopping for the cheesecake ingredients? We're baking tomorrow (Thursday) so you still have time to get them.

 

Awesome

Download Chapter 3, the PowerPoint and a sheet that may be of use. Enjoy saying neuroplasticity.

English

Wednesday’s Quick Write Task

Pick between

Should children have to complete chores at home? Why/why not?

OR

Should there be an age limit on being able to own a mobile phone?

 

Discuss with a parent or friends before writing your answer to get other opinions.

Maths

Miss Flisher and Mr Newman will be continuing with their orienteering maths today. Here are some multiplication and division questions which I am sure will keep you very busy. You could cut out the questions and ask an adult or older sibling to hide them about the house or garden, giving you clues as to where you might find them.

 

Enjoy the activity!

 

If you prefer a different challenge, log on to Mathletics or Times Tables Rock Stars (click the images).

 

                       

 

 

DT

Have you done any gardening yet? Here's the link to some excellent gardening activities that you can complete (even if you don't have a garden!).

 

 

Have a wonderful day. Enjoy your learning.

Don't forget to email me to let me know how you are getting on.

 

Tuesday 14th July 2020

Good morning Year 5. I wonder how you are today - we have had a lovely day at school today, the weather has been just right (not too hot and not too cold) and although we've all had a busy day, we're in buoyant moods! (Look up buoyant if you're unsure what that means)

 

AWESOME

In school this week, Miss Flisher and Mr Newman are looking at Mathew Syed's You are Awesome. Today, please read chapter 2 and then work your way through the Power Point presentation. There's lot to think about and it may be useful to complete this activity with an adult, older sibling or a trusted friend. Here it is, I hope you enjoy it (do email me with feedback and let me know how you get on: goldfinch@archbishopcourtenay.kent.sch.uk)

 

 

English Quick Write

Today's quick-write challenge:

 

Select one of the following titles to create a piece of writing on.  You will have 5 minutes planning time followed by 20 minutes writing time:

  • Being lost, scared or alone
  • Doing something exciting or achieving something (’the best day of my life was . . . ’)
  • Animals

 

What a fantastic challenge - I am sure that you will enjoy this writing.

 

Maths

Yesterday I posted a 2-day maths lesson: scroll down to yesterday's instructions and complete the lesson.

 

 

Shopping List

Finally, on Thursday this week we will all be doing some no-bake cooking. You will need the following ingrediants:

  • 350g cream cheese (e.g. a tub of Philadelphia or similar but not Dairy-Lee)
  • 110g digestive biscuits (a packet)
  • 50g  butter
  • 75g icing sugar
  • 25g brown sugar (optional)
  • Tinned fruit (or your favourite cheesecake topping - I like sliced kiwi and strawberry)
  • Baking paper / tin foil / cling film (something to line your cake tin with)

 

We will be making these on Thursday - I have listed these for your shopping list.

 

Monday 13th July 2020

Good morning Year 5 - welcome to your last week of term. It's Mrs Evans here and I shall be updating the blog every day this week as Miss Flisher and Mr Newman welcome some of you back to school this week. How are you today? 

 

Keep up to date with the news - click on the link for Newsround

 

 

English

 

Miss Flisher has asked me to set a Quick Write task for you:

 

Monday’s Quick Write Task

Should schools allow children to have longer play times? Share your opinion and convince me that your opinion is correct.

Watch the video below and create an answer.

 

Here is the link again:

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=YGYtIQW-CKM&feature=youtu.be

 

 

Maths

This is a two-day activity. 

The children who return to school will be completing an orienteering style maths activity this week. I have been thinking about how this might work for you. Miss Flisher has printed an aerial photo of the school and has marked several points on it: children will then find these points and when they get there, they will have a question answer. This is what their photo looks like:

 

Can you see the coloured dots? I wonder if they will find everything.

 

Your task is to do something similar: imagine you are are a bird flying over your street. Draw what you would see and then identify your house or flat and if you have one, your garden. Or you could imagine that the roof has been removed from your house or flat and you are looking down at the rooms. Now identify 12 different areas where you could place a coloured dot on your picture. This is where you could hide your questions.

 

Drawing the picture, in detail, might take you all of  your maths session today - that's ok. We'll continue tomorrow.

 

Here are the maths questions that Miss Flisher and Mr Newman will be placing around the school. I wonder where you might place yours. 

 

If you have time today, begin to answer the questions but I expect you might need to wait until tomorrow before starting these.

DT / Gardening

 

Our Year 5 friends in school will be visiting the allotment this week: I have found this fantastic resource with some great home projects for you. Have a look (scroll down to the Projects at home section) and choose a project. If you don't have a garden, you can still complete some of the projects. When you have chosen what you want to do, jot down some ideas and email me to let me you what you have chosen.

You can send me your work by email - it would be lovely to hear from you. goldfinch@archbishopcourtenay.kent.sch.uk

Friday 10th July 2020

 

Hello Redwings. This is going to be one of my last blogs. Next week, Mrs Evans will be writing the blogs as I'll be in class. Wahoo! I really can't wait to see your faces again - it's been a very quiet time in school without you - hopefully you've missed coming in. We have an exciting week planned andif you are working at home please don't think that you're going to miss out as the work we will be doing in school is the work that will be set on the website which means that you can do it at home. 

 

We have our last virtual sports day event today and it is, in my opinion, the best one. Find it by clicking the link below and send your videos into me. We have had so many entries, it's been a fabulous 2 weeks.

                            

 

There is also a special Virtual Sports Week Kahoot quiz today. The game pin is: 02636026 so click the image below to go straight to it. 

                                 

 

For today's work, I would like you to make sure you have completed the work set this week. This includes the English work posted this week and the Aeroplane competition in Maths. 

 

Today, I am going to be busy preparing for next week so you should too! Think about coming back to school. How are you feeling about it? Excited, nervous, apprehensive? It's OK, whatever your feelings are. If you're excited - great! What are you excited about? If you're apprehensive - why? What's making you apprehensive? It's important that we talk about our feelings and understand why we are feeling in a certain way so that we understand how we each react to different situations. Then we can either embrace the emotion or try to alter that negative emotion by thinking about the positives. 

 

This is how I'm feeling...

I'm so excited for you to be coming back to school and I can't wait to hear about what you have been getting up to in lockdown. I am also nervous because I haven't taught properly in a long time! What if I've forgotten how to teach? Deep down, I know I'll be OK but the thought is always there. I've got lots of people around me who will support me and I know as soon as you're all back everything will fall into place, as if we have never left!

 

Have a lovely weekend and see some of you on Monday!

 

Miss Flisher

Morning all! I hope you had a lovely sleep ready for today! Hopefully it will be nice a sunny again (without the showers of rain). We had the year 6's in yesterday and it was lovely to see them. They quick settled into school life again even though its changed slightly. I'm looking forward to having everyone else back now! 

 

Chloe has sent in another amazing piece of work this week. It's all about Anne Frank who was a Jewish girl hiding with her family from the Nazis in World War 2. As you know from your history lessons, the Nazis didn't take too kindly to those of the Jewish faith so it was important for Anne and her family to hide to save their lives. Learn more by reading Chloe's brilliant powerpoint.

It would be lovely to see any work you have done over the lockdown period. Send it to redwings@archbishopcourtenay.kent.sch.uk.

Happy Monday Redwings!

I hope you had a lovely weekend. I certainly did. I spent most of my time in the garden looking after my plants including my radishes (which are flourishing) and replanting my sunflowers to give them more space! My very kind neighbour gave me a tomato plant, that's already grown a foot tall, so I can get a head start on growing some tomatoes. What a lovely way to show fellowship! Have you shown any of our values whilst being at home? Maybe you've been helping your sibling? Or trying extremely hard on your home learning? What can you do to show these values? (I hope you can remember them!)

 

English:

This weeks lesson are online for Wonder. Follow the link to find it. Make sure you have completed last weeks lessons as they are sequenced!

 

Reading:

Go to the Reading Comprehension page HERE, to find the 60 second reads. PIck one or two that you wish to complete. You don't even need to print them out to complete them. Just find a piece of paper and a pen or pencil to write your answers. 

 

SPaG:

At the end of the week I would like you to complete a small SPaG assessment so you can see what you know or need to work on. For now look at relative clauses. We have looked at them before so hopefully it's not too new!

                                                       

 

I will upload chapter 10 of Goodnight Mister Tom today so look out for that HERE!

 

 

Maths:

The first maths lesson is up and I am uploading the rest later today (I had a technical issue when trying to upload them all). We are looking at fractions, percentages and decimals this week which can be challenging but easy once you understand. Have a look at percentages today.

Thursday 11th June 2020

 

Morning everyone! I hope you are well and raring to go today. I'm seeing more and more adults in school now which is super exciting. It's lovely seeing different people as it's making things seem more normal; even though we are still socially distancing. 

 

English:

Wonder is still on the website. Head to it by clicking the image. All the lessons of the week are there so go back through them if you haven't had a chance to do them yet.

 

You can also head to BBC bitesize to look at how to use dashes and hyphens correctly. Click the image below to go straight there.

Happy Wednesday Redwings!

I hope you are all OK and enjoying your learning. I have chatted to a few of you and some year 5's from Herons about your learning. Especially those who are applying for the 11+ in September. If you are studying for your 11+ and you need some extra help don't be afraid to email me (redwings@archbishopcourtenay.kent.sch.uk) and ask for whatever you need. I am more than happy to help you prepare for the test! 

 

I so enjoy hearing from you and seeing what you have been getting up to so please don't be afraid to email me work or even just email to say hello. 

 

English:

    

The next 'Wonder' lesson is already online so go and complete it. If you haven't done the others yet, do them first. 

 

If you didn't do so yesterday - have a look at modal verbs on BBC bitesize.

 

Maths:

Again Maths is already online (how organised am I!). So head over and get going with Multiplying Decimals!

         

 

 

Mindfulness:

So we are in a mad world at the moment and its so important that you take your mind off what is happening around you and focus on you. Your mental health is as important (if not more) than your physical health, so taking that time away from work, away from other people and away from daily stresses is vital to staying happy and healthy, in all aspects of the word. 

 

So today take yourself away - find a quiet place and chill out. You can listen to music, colour, watch your favourite tv show or film, read a book or even listen to a book. Just take yourself away and chill. You can find resources here to help you. 

                                                            

 

Lastly, it's healthy eating week this week. Have you been eating healthily or are you guilty of snacking on crisps and chocolate? I have to say it's hard to eat healthily whilst stuck indoors with a fridge! Have a look at the website below to find recipes, games and other exciting things about healthy food! 

                                    

 

That's all for today! Talk tomorrow.

Good morning Redwings!

I hope you are having a lovely morning so far. It's so nice now the sun is out. School is getting busier and busier by the day. We have reception children in now who were super eager to get back into school - some were running to greet Mrs Eades and Miss Sutherland. It's slowly but surely returning to normal. Unfortunately, we still do not have a date or idea as to when Year 5's will be returning. It's looking likely that you will be coming back in September. Rest assured we will all be prepared for whenever you return according to whatever the world is looking like. 

 

English:

I have upload the weeks lessons for Wonder onto our class page (as Goldfinches are at a different point to us), so click the image below to find the next lesson of Wonder. Also, I have upload 3...YES 3...chapters of 'Goodnight Mister Tom' for you to listen to. Find them below. 

                                                                  

 

I have also uploaded some '60 second Reading' pages. Do one of these a day to stay on top of your comprehension skills. Find them here, and pick the texts that peak your interest!

 

Also, have a look at the BBC bitesize website to remind yourself of modal verbs. What can you remember?

                                                           

 

Maths

I have uploaded maths for the week onto the maths page now. Work through it day by day. I'm not expecting all of them done today! Remember to visit Mathletics and TTRS as well!

Happy Monday Redwings!

I hope you had a lovely weekend even with the weather being not very nice. I managed to go for a lovely walk in a nature reserve in Loose Valley with my dogs, Kenny and Frank. They loved running around in the big fields and long grass. They also had a swim in the water that's down there! Some good exercise for them. 

 

We have a Kahoot winner from Friday's quiz but sadly it wasn't a Redwing. Mr Webster won as a staff member and Ryan from Swallows won as a pupil! There will be another Kahoot quiz this Friday so I would love to see a Redwing win that!

 

English:

We are starting a new book today called 'Wonder' by R.J. Palacio. You might have seen the film but it was originally a book! Have a look at the first lesson on Mrs Evans page and complete it. 

             

 

You can also listen to the next few chapters of 'Goodnight Mister Tom' by Michelle Magorian. I finally recorded the some more! 

 

Maths:     

There is a new maths page which will have lessons each day. This week is all about decimals. Check it out here as well as Mathletics and TTRS. 

       

 

RE:

Mrs Evans has planned a series of great lessons on RE for this term. You should have completed lesson 1 and now today have a look and complete lesson 2. 

  

 

Have fun today!

Friday 5th June 2020

 

Morning Redwings,

It's Friday! Last day and then a lovely two day break where hopefully we will have some sun. We are welcoming year R's back to school on Monday which is incredibly exciting. We have been working very hard this week to make sure we have everything ready and it is safe for them so hopefully

 

So we know it's Friday which can mean one thing... IT'S KAHOOT QUIZ TIME. This week is fun facts about staff members. There are some really, really interesting facts that I didn't even know! Click the image below and enter Game Pin: 02039267. You have until 3pm to complete it! Good luck. 

 

                              

 

Today's work is as follows:

Maths: There is another arithmetic test below. Have a go and see if you have improved your score! Email me to let me know!

English:

For your reading today, head to the reading comprehension page using the image below. Again, I've uploaded a text linked to what is happening in the world today as it is incredibly important you understand why this is happening. We have covered it in class when learning about Windrush and listened to Dave performing 'Black' at the Brits. Also, listen to newsround to get your up to date news regarding this!

                                          


For writing, go to the youtube page below for your quick write today. 

                                             

 

History:

This term we are continuing with WW2 but we will start to look at the geography side of the war which is equally as interesting. Today, however, we are looking at the role of women during the second world war. Head to the new topic page for this term to find the powerpoint and tasks. 

                                                                       
 

That's all for today! Have a lovely, safe weekend and talk to you next week!

Morning Redwings!

I hope you are having a fantastic week! I am still super busy at school. This week, I've rung all of your parents to check in to make sure you are happy and healthy. It was lovely to hear what you have been getting up too. It sounded like you are really busy as well. Remember, whatever you do at home with regards to work is brilliant. The important thing we are concerned about is that you are happy and healthy. 

 

On to today's work. 

 

Maths: Keep working on your arithmetic practise. It would be excellent if you can divide and multiply 3 digits numbers by 1 digit when you eventually come back!

If you need some more help, look at the links from yesterdays blog and the links below. Tomorrow I'll give you a different arithmetic test to see if you have improved. 

            

 

English: Below is another story starter for you to complete. This time I would like you to see how many fronted adverbials you can include to keep you sentences interesting! For a reminder on fronted  adverbials, heads to the sentence starter page on the class page. 

        

 

Reading: There is another reading comprehension to complete today focused again on black history. Something that is really poignant at this moment in time. Find the reading comprehension using the link below and also watch newsround to find out about what is happening now. 

                                        

 

RE: Find some RE work on the Goldfinch page using the link below. We are still focusing on Islam this term and Mrs Evans has kindly planned a terms worth of lessons! Find them all here and focus on one a week. 

                                                                          

 

That's all for today! Come back tomorrow when it's Friday - Or Fri-yay.

Hello Redwings!

 

I hope you are all well today. It's been a busy few days for the school making sure we are ready for Year R to return to school next week. Also, myself and Mrs Bone have been trying to help some of you who are taking the Kent Test, or 11+, in September. All very exciting times. 

 

Today's work is similar to yesterday. 

 

Maths: You should have completed your Arithmetic test from yesterday so now you can look at working on improving your weaker areas. It's OK to have an area to improve on and all of you will have one... even I have one! I definitely need to work on my division. Use the maths pages to help you or look at the web pages below. 

          

         Class Page         Multiplication and Division                  Adding and Subtracting                                   Fractions

 

English: I have a quick write for you to complete today! Watch the video using the link below and complete the write!

                   

 

Reading:  Complete the reading comprehension below. It's linked to something that's happening in the world right now so I would like you to also read about this news through Newsround. There is an article explaining everything about the protests and why they are happening. It is also mentioned in today's Newsround video! Find it all below. 

                                          

 

Science: Mr Newman has planned a great lesson on living things! Find it by clicking the image below!

Morning Redwings. 

I hope you have had a restful sleep and are raring to go today - I know I am. I hope you've been thinking about the paragraph work I set you yesterday. I've already had a few replies and it's great to know how you are feeling about coming back to school. It's good to share your feelings and not bottle them up - or you'll explode!

 

I've also received a fantastic piece of work from Chloe this week. It's a brilliant poem about WW2. Read it below. 

       

Marching

by Chloe Saunders

 

What are we marching for?

To stop the vicious war

What are we marching for?

To fight the Germans no more

What are we marching for?

It’s to do or die

What are we marching for?

To keep our heads held high

What are we marching for?

To stop the vicious war

 

How thought provoking! Chloe has really managed to put across how the soldiers might have been feeling marching off to war! We will be looking more at WW2 this term and focusing on the allies and the axis (google those words if you don't know what they mean). 

 

OK on to today's tasks. 

 

Maths: Today I would like you to complete an arithmetic assessment. We use assessments to see what you need to go back over or have another look at to secure your learning. Use this assessment to do the same at home. Then for the rest of the week you can focus on the parts of arithmetic you need to work on to get them up to scratch. Find the arithmetic assessment below. Try your best and mark your work using the answers. 

English: Finish your work from yesterday about your worries for returning to school. If you have done that, have a look at the story starter below. Finish the story in whatever way you would like. 

 

 

 

Art: For art today check out feelings art on Mrs Evans', Goldfinch page. Create your own emotion colour wheel!

 

 

 

That's all for today! Remember to send your pieces of work to redwings@archbishopcourtenay.kent.sch.uk.

Happy Term 6 everyone!

Wow it's the last term of this very strange year. How have you been? I had a lovely week off from work and actually relaxed on the sun. I have taken up a new hobby of carpentry! I built a planter from a wooden pallet, which I am very proud of. See the pictures below! 

 

       

                           From this                                                                        To this!

I am currently in school writing to you now, getting used to the new way of working. It's slightly different now but I'll fill you in on the changes before you come in, do not worry!

 

Today I would like to ease you back into work! So for Maths, explore Mathletics and TTRS - get high scores on them! For English, I would like you to write about how you are feeling about coming back to school. Write about your worries, anxieties and you can talk about what you are looking forward too. I would like this written in full sentences using appropriate language and grammar and at least 2 paragraphs. If you wish you can include a picture of how you are feeling at the end. Once you have completed them send them to: redwings@archbishopcourtenay.kent.sch.uk by Wednesday 3rd June 2020. I will be contacting all of you at some point this week so I will be checking in. 

 

Talk to you all tomorrow!

Happy Tuesday Redwings. 

Sorry for the lateness of the blog today, my internet at home didn't want to co-operate this morning!

I am so excited today! my plants are thriving. I replanted them yesterday to give them more room to grow. Have a look at them below. 

  

First image show tomatoes, lettuce, watermelon and cucumber. Second image are sunflowers. Third image are lettuce, radish, swede and spring onion. 

 

I'm very proud of them as this is my first time trying to grow vegetables. Maybe you can try it too.

Onto today's work!

 

English:

Reading - I have uploaded the next reading lesson for Rose Blanche. I hope you like the book as much as I do. At the end of the week I will upload a recording of me reading it so you can listen to the book in full. Until then, use the reading lessons to work through the book. 

 

Writing - Continue with your poetry task that was assigned to you yesterday. Remember it's up to you to organise yourself and work through at your own pace. I'm looking forward to seeing some of your poetry at the end of the week!

Good morning Redwings! 

Happy last week of term. What a lovely day to start the week off with! I can't believe its already the last week of term, it's gone so quickly! 

 

Today's work...

Reading - I have created a dedicated page for this weeks reading all based on a book called 'Rose Blanche' by Ian McEwan. It's a lovely illustrated book which I adore, I think you will to. Find the work by clicking the image below. 

                                                              

 

Writing - 

This week's writing is all about reading and writing poetry. Mrs Evans has chosen a fantastic poem by Brian Moses so that by the end of the week you'll be writing and performing your own anti-war / protest / resistance songs. How exciting! All of the lessons are online: take a look and plan what you will do each day. 

                                                                        

 

There is also a fantastic writing competition. This is your opportunity to write about your experience. Until midnight on Friday the 17th of July, you can submit a piece of writing about what life has been like in lockdown and during the coronavirus. This could be a personal experience, a poem, or a creative story. All of you will have had a unique experience that is only yours, and only you can capture in words.

 

If you have been keeping your journal, you might want to use this to help you to write but don't worry if you haven't been keeping a journal: it's not too late. Read the information on the website (click the image). If you decide to enter, I will help you during the planning, writing and editing process. This is not compulsory, but I would urge every member of Redwing class to take part.

                                                       

 

Maths - What I would like you to focus on this week is position and direction. This is a small unit but can be challenging. But once you get it its easy! It needs you to really engage your brain. Check out the remind me section about coordinates and then work through the Year 5 section.

Happy Wednesday Redwings!

I hope you've woken up in a great mood this morning... I know I have! I'll tell you why. I recently took up some gardening and my seeds are sprouting! You can see it in the image below. It's all very exciting. 

                                       

 

Maybe you have some time to start planting seeds - we have already seen Grace's sunflower. Can you grow your own!

 

On to today's work!

 

English:

I have uploaded the next few questions in Reading, looking at 'The Last Wild'.       

 

For writing, we are continuing our leaflet for an Anderson Shelter. Today I would like you to answer the questions on the History page - have you included the answers in your sentences? Here will be the time you can edit your sentences and include more/different information. So you writing tasks are - 

                 1. Answer the questions located on the history page.

                 2. Check if you have included this information in your sentences/paragraphs from yesterday. 

                 3. Edit to include information you may have missed. 

 

Also complete some SPaG work. Have a go at using Parenthesis in your writing. Find all the information about that here: 

Maths:

You have been looking at Fractions, decimals and percentages this week so far, what I would really like you to ensure you understand is equivalent fractions. If you are struggling, click on the images below to take you to different websites that may help you. 

                                                   

                      You can also use the resources we have here on the class page. 

 

If you know your equivalent fractions, have a go at ordering and comparing them. Use the website above to help you!

 

And if you think you can do that head over to Mathletics to complete some fraction work or to Top marks to complete some fraction games!

                          

 

Additional:

I have read more chapters to 'Goodnight Mister Tom' and Mrs Evans has also read more of 'When Hitler Stole Pink Rabbit'. Maybe you can listen to us read whilst you complete some mindfulness colouring this afternoon... I might spend my afternoon doing that actually!

                                           

 

Talk to you tomorrow!

Happy Monday, Redwings!

What a dull and windy Monday it is, cheer yourselves up by doing some exercise! Head to the PE page to get a link to some exciting exercises. I hope you all got the opportunity to enter into the Kahoot quiz this week. I saw a few familiar names on the league table. Alas, it was not a Redwing who won... it was Rup Mok! Congratulations to him! There will be another quiz this Friday and it's going to be a fun one!

 

You all should have received a letter regarding the 11+. Please do not panic at the thought of the 11+! This is an optional test for those who would like to go to grammar school. If you need a bit of help or guidance or aren't sure if you should take it then please email me: redwings@archbishopcourtenay.kent.sch.uk and I will help you as much as I can!

 

Now for the work this week! Please see below! 

 

English: 

Reading - Mrs Evans has kindly organised another reading activity to do with a new book! Find the lesson by clicking on the image below. The new book is 'The Last Wild' by Piers Torday. 

                                                                  

 

Writing/History - There is another History based write this week focused on Anderson Shelters! Your task for the week is to create a leaflet from the government to someone sheltering in their own Anderson Shelter. We are going to work through it step by step though do not worry!

First job, read the powerpoint and make notes on the important parts. What is the key information? There is also some information on what to do in an air raid. Read this and take a few more notes. Again, only note the important information. Also, do not write full sentences in your notes, just ensure you understand what you have written. Click on the image below to head straight to it!

                                                         


Spelling:

Let's look at homophones this week. Here are some words that many people (including adults) sometimes get wrong: write each in a short sentence (or use more than one correctly in a sentence). Check the links to help you.

 

        there their they're     were where we're      advise  advice     practise   practice      which  witch

   

                                                  

 

Maths:

Last week we looked at measurement and including converting measurements. This week I would like us to revisit fractions. Head over to the Maths page and where you will find some fraction resources. Look at the remind me page first of all, that's today's task. Remind yourself of the parts of fractions, decimals and simple equivalents. Tomorrow we will move onto the year 5 curriculum.

Happy Wednesday Redwings! 

It's lovely weather again. Yay! This weather just makes me feel happy. 

 

Thank you and well done to all of those who took part in the Kahoot quiz yesterday! And congratulations to... (drum roll please)... Emilis! You've won it for Redwings. Well done! Have a trophy... 

 

Today's work is as follows!

 

English:

SPaG - Look at the commas page on the English page and work through the powerpoints and tests. Can you use commas in the correct places?

                                                              

 

 

Reading - Find another reading lesson by clicking the image below. It's focused on a different book called 'Peepo!' by Janet and Allan Ahlberg. You will need to use your knowledge about World War II in addition to your comprehension skills to answer the questions. I think you will really enjoy this unusual reading task.

                                                                

 

Writing - You should still be working on your diary entry from our History focus this week. Try to make sure you look at your commas - have you used them correctly? 

If you would like to send your diaries to me for some feedback please do!

                                                       

 

Maths:

I hope that you have been getting on swimmingly with you measurement work! Continue with the work from the class page as well as some work/games/help from the additional websites below. I have set new Mathletics so feel free to log on to that too!

        

 

Additional:

Art - Look on the Art and Design page for some WW2 related art tasks. There is also a very interesting art project that's been set up by the Turner Contemporary Gallery (a famous art gallery in Margate). Each week, an artist will show you how to complete a piece of art from home. This week, you could make incredible masks. I've added a link to our DT page or you can click this picture: 

                                         

 

Mindfulness - There is a new Mindfulness page on the class page which is filled with plenty of activities to keep you going in this time. Remember your Mental Health is just as important as your Physical Health. Check it out below.  

                                                       

 

Social Media - At this time, its likely that you will be using more social media than usual to contact your friends, which is perfectly fine. What is important is that you stay safe on the platforms you are using. Click the image below to go to the 'Think you Know' website so you know exactly how to keep safe online at this time! 

                                                                   

 

LASTLY: Remember to check out the next chapter in 'Goodnight Mister Tom' to be released today (providing my internet lets me upload the video). Beware: I suffered a small skateboarding injury to my face prior to filming chapter 4 - I haven't smudged anything on my face!

 

Well that was a long blog. Use today and tomorrow to complete the activities as I will not be online tomorrow. Have a lovely Bank Holiday Weekend! 

 

Stay safe

Before we get onto the work, Grace has started a small project where she is growing a Sunflower. Here is the first picture of it. Grace is going to send updated pictures so we can see how its growing!

I know our swimming sessions got cut short, so I have found a swimming resource for you to read and look at (sorry, I know that's no where near as fun as actually swimming) all about water safety. Email me to let me know if you have read it and, if enough of you have read it, then next week I will organise a Redwings Kahoot session on water safety as well as other general knowledge questions!

Hello Redwings! 

 

I am missing you all! I hope you had a fabulous Easter break - I ate far too many Easter eggs! Over the Easter break, you have been working hard on your Anderson Shelter project! I have seen some already but would love to see them all so email some pictures to redwings@archbishopcourtenay.kent.sch.uk so I can load them onto the website!

 

So online school and my daily blog will be continuing for term 5 keeping you up to date with tasks and challenges. In term 5 we will be looking at World War 2, a very significant period of British history!

 

Everyday I'm going to be assigning daily English and Maths work for you to complete. Today I would like you to compete the reading task by going to our Classpage/Term 5 - World War 2/English. It's about our class reader 'Friend or Foe' by Michael Morpurgo.  Also, please have a look at the Maths on White Rose https://whiterosemaths.com/homelearning/year-5/. Its all about adding decimals!

 

BBC Bitesize are releasing some daily lessons for you to look at and complete. Have a look at the lessons for the week and tell me what you think! https://www.bbc.co.uk/bitesize/tags/zhgppg8/year-5-lessons/1

 

Have a great day and I would love to hear from you!

Day 10 - Friday 3rd April 2020!

 

Well, this would have been our last day in school before the Easter holidays! What a shame that we are off already. I hope that you have been getting on with your packs and the work that's been set daily. You can have a well earned rest over the Easter holidays...I know I will be!


Last challenge of the day until the 20th April, when I'll return with our daily blog. I have set new Mathletics work for you to complete online! It's looking at decimals, percentages and fractions which is what we have been looking at through White Rose Maths which was set on Day 6! 

Also, I'm hoping that you have been doing you formal writing piece from yesterday. Make sure you have edited and improved it. Check your basics like capital letters and full stops, then move on to making sure your sentences make sense and are in the correct tense! Have you included a relative clause? 

 

Remember, you can send me your work by emailing: redwings@archbishopcourtenay.kent.sch.uk

 

The next two weeks are our official Easter holiday. I won't be updating this page during those two weeks however I have set you an Easter Challenge! Click the link below to have a look at it! I will also be emailing you personally to see how you've been getting on!

 

So that's me signing off for 2 weeks! Have a great break! Stay safe!

Day 9 - Thursday 2nd April 2020

 

Well it's April already! Hopefully, the sun will be shining much more and we can all get more time in the garden or spring cleaning. 

 

Your challenge today, is to write a information report informing someone of something you like to do. It could be to do with fortnite, football, dancing, cooking, anything you want! There is a structure I would like you to follow! Use the link below to see it as well as some other bits to help you. An extra challenge is to see if you can include a relative clause!

 

Good luck

Day 5 - Friday 27th March 2020!

 

It's the end of the first week of our strange new way of living! How have you found it? I think its been tough but I'm making sure I have structure to my day; work time, exercise time and relax time. Also, I've been doing all those jobs around the house that I've been meaning to do for ages! Must look on the positives!

 

So your end of the week challenge is to go into the garden or balcony or look out of your window, absorb the glorious weather, and answer these questions:

 

1. How many different species of animal you can see? 

2. How would you classify these species? 

3. Do these species help plants in their life-cycle?

4. Can you note down the species' life cycles? 

5. Can you sketch the species you find?

 

There is lots to help you with this here, in fact, there is enough here to keep you busy all weekend!  https://www.stem.org.uk/resources/elibrary/resource/34255/grouping-and-classification 

 

Keep working on your packs and tasks today and make sure you find time to exercise and relax! Also, thank you to all those who have been emailing! It's been great to here from you! If you haven't emailed me please do so! The email is redwings@archbishopcourtenay.kent.sch.uk

 

See you next week!

Day 3 - Wednesday 25th March 2020

 

Hi, I hope you are all well and not too bored indoors! It's easy for the boredom to sneak up by try and keep a list of tasks to do and complete them throughout the day! Hopefully you will be kept busy that way! 

 

I was thinking about today's challenge when I came across the NASA website which has 100's of pictures on it from space! What a fantastic story you could create! So, your task is to create a story about a mission to space. This can be for a younger sibling or for someone your own age! Try and use descriptive language to paint a picture in the readers mind! Don't be afraid to draw you own illustrations as well! Follow the link to find the pictures - https://images.nasa.gov/ 

 

Now of course I want to read them, so send your stories to redwings@archbishopcourtenay.kent.sch.uk. It will help me with my boredom! 

 

Stay indoors, stay safe. Talk tomorrow!

Well, I have had my morning workout and I now my legs are aching!!! It was a tough one but hopefully the workouts will get easier and easier! Follow Joe Wicks morning workouts at 9am on Youtube like me!

 

Now for your daily challenge... I have been trying to challenge all of you on TTRockstars, however my internet isn't working amazingly so it isn't loading properly. So I have recorded a speed of 2.14 sec/qu - can you beat it? I'm going to work super hard to beat my own score!
