Welcome to 5M!
Hello to everyone at home!
Welcome to our new online classroom!
This is a new way of learning for all of us but I know you'll all do really well. Some things will stay the same:
- rule off and write the date for each new piece of work in your exercise book
- neat handwriting
- have a go at everything and do your best
Every day on this page you will find:
- 5 a day
- PE (on Mondays and Thursdays)
I'll also put other activities up here as well.
I'll be putting answers to the questions from the previous day on here too (scroll down).
Remember that you can use the Guestbook below to let me know how you're getting on, if you have any questions or just want to say hi! Click on the Comments button to see what everyone is saying.
Why don't you ask a parent or carer to take a photo of your work and email it to myself and Mrs Barnes to see? Ask them to send it to: firstname.lastname@example.org
Wednesday 8th April
5 a day
Here are the 5 a day questions for this week. The answers to yesterday's 5 a day are further down the page.
Here's a different spelling activity:
Go to https://spellingframe.co.uk/ . Choose Year 5 and 6. On Spelling Rule 37 click on 'play'. Then click on the game with the 'free' sign on it. It's currently Spelling Road Hopper but it changes from time to time. Good luck!
Remember the author of our class novel, Michael Morpurgo? Today you're going to listen to him being interviewed, and write some sentences about him with some great grammatical features in them.
We did some work on place value when we were together. Here are some questions to practice working out the value of digits in decimal numbers.
Mr Morris’ Maths Group – Q1-3
Mrs Barnes’ Maths Group – Q4-9
It's Science today and we're learning all about life cycles.
Dear Parents and Carers
I realise that this way of working is new to you too! Please don't feel under any pressure to become a full time tutor to your children! There may be things that your child finds difficult. That's OK, I just want them to have a go and keep their brains active. The main priority is your child's wellbeing.
The work set should take between 1 hour 30 mins and 2 hours each day and should be completed at your child's own pace. The answers for the previous day will be put on this page so that your child can mark their own work.
There are some useful websites for home learning further down this page and also here.
If you have any questions about the work set, myself and Mrs Barnes can be contacted by email: email@example.com You can also use the Guestbook below to keep in touch. Please encourage your child to use the Guestbook too. The email address is only for parents to use please.
