5H

Friday 22nd May

 

Hello Yr 5!

We hope you've all had a good week!

We've seen pictures of some of you enjoying playing in paddling pools  - it certainly has been the weather for it. 

Attached below is a Half Term Project if you want something to do.  It shouldn't take too long and is a bit of fun.  We'd love to see you trying out the exercises.  Remember to keep learning those timestables and spellings.  

 

We'll be back in touch at the end of the half-term break to set the next English and Maths work. 

Take care,

Mrs H and Mrs R.

Good Morning all!

 

We hope you're all ok and enjoying the lovely sunshine, although doesn't look to be as warm next week unfortunately. 

 

We've updated the work for this week.  All of the sheets should be available to download and there are links to websites for the videos.  

For the afternoon project, we've set an art activity, but if you finish it quickly, there is also a music lesson you can do from the BBC website.  

 

Let us know what you've been up to over the last week.  Mrs Rogers and her little boy have been on a 'Where's Wally' hunt that someone has set up where she lives.  Mrs Harrison has been watching the ducklings on the river when she's been going for a walk.  What have you seen on your walks? 

 

It's been lovely seeing your photos of your lego creations, yummy meals you've been cooking and projects you've made.  Keep them coming!

 

Miss you all!

Mrs H and Mrs R

Hello all! 

There's a link below some local walks which might be helpful to some of you.

It's been lovely hearing from lots of you over the last few days and we've enjoyed the photos to see what you've been getting up to.

Speak soon,

Mrs H and Mrs R.

Good morning Year 5!

During your walks and daily exercise this week we hope that you didn't get too wet. At different points this week we both got caught out in a downpour whilst walking our dogs; although both Bailey (Mrs Harrison's dog) and Buzz (Mrs Rogers' dog) were not deterred by the rain at all and eager to carry on.

 

Once again, we were both in school this week and for the first time since lockdown we were in at the same time! It was lovely to see each other but very hard to ensure we kept to our social distancing rules. Nevertheless, we had a good old catch up smiley 

Apart from that, our week hasn't changed much. We are still enjoying our exciting visit to the supermarkets and are just grateful when the queue is under about 20 people long. 

We have heard from most, if not all, of you this week and it has been lovely talking to you and your parents. We have also been blown away with the work we have received and so pleased that many of you are getting into routines that work for you and you are happy with.

But remember that we just like to hear from you, you do not always have to send work, just say Hi sometimes! 

 

Below are a couple of links that you might be interested in. The first link is a free download of a book called 'How to NOT go to school' which is about life in lockdown and the second link is a series of art lessons from an artist that works for Disney drawing your favourite characters:

Have a good week and stay safe.

Evening Year 5s!

It's 7.30pm and we'd like to think you're all tucked up in your beds fast asleep .  We've had some emails in with the stories you've been writing - thank you! We thought we'd just attach below the sentence types that we've learning in class to remind you what to include in your writing.  There are lots there, but just focus on the ones we've covered, or if you feel brave, try a new one!

Miss you all still! 

Mrs H and Mrs R

Friday 27th March

 

Happy Friday everyone,

 

I cannot believe it has only been a week since I have seen you all - feels like forever.  I hope that you are all well and happy!

 

I am sure you all know about Joe Wicks live PE classes everyday but there are a few more happening too - I will upload the information below this!

 

We are also setting you some fun challenges to try over the weekend and next week. I will upload this below too!

 

On the challenges it asks you to take a photo of what you do, as evidence, please feel free to email these over to me on :

angela.harrison@buckhursthill.essex.sch.uk

Also, feel free to send me a quick message telling me how you are and what you are up to - or even just to say Hi! 

 

I would LOVE to hear from you!!

 

Take care guys

 

Mrs H

We hope you're ok.  

 

We'll be updating the class pages over the next couple of days with some good links for Maths and English lessons which you can use over the next couple of weeks, so watch this space!

 

If you're missing a computing lesson, have a go at: https://pivotanimator.net/Download.php

where you can make a simple animation.  There's enough on the site to teach yourself.  Do check with your parents they're happy for you to download the free software.  I found the older version worked best on my computer (version 2.2.7).

 

Miss you lots!

Evening all!

 

Just wanted to mention that we have uploaded our curriculum map for year 5 - this helps you see at a glance what your children have already learnt in the foundation subjects and what we have planned for the rest of the academic year.

It will help you when looking at ideas for future learning..

 

Night night.

 

Mrs H

Wednesday 25th March.


Good Morning all! 
 

Just thought we’d write a little message to you as we’re thinking about you all lots and wondering what you’re getting up to. 

We hope you’re all ok and still in contact with each other. It’s good to have a catch up, however that might be.  
 

We’ve been doing the Joe Wickes workout at 9am each morning. It’s only 20-30 mins each morning, but helps to make us feel better. 

 

It’s a beautiful day, so make the most of your time outside. 
Missing you all,

Mrs H, Mrs R and Mr P
 

 

Monday 23rd March

Hello Year 5!

It felt odd not seeing you all at school today! 

We hope your first day learning at home was as enjoyable as it could be (some of you probably loved it!!) 

 

We've added a few more links under the 'Home Learning' section.  There are a couple of science activities linked to our new topic 'Lifecycles,' a French activity and some links for our Geography topic 'National Parks.' 

With the geography topic, start by completing the 'National Parks reading comprehension' activity, before moving onto to the 'Lake District' Powerpoint and research task. 

 

If you're looking for a bit of a routine, here is a suggestion:

 

9.00-9.30 - P.E with Joe Wickes (on Youtube daily)

9.30-10.30 - Maths activity

10.30 - 10.45 - Learn a times tables/Times Tables Rock Stars

10.45 - 11.00 - Break

11.00 - 11.15 - Learn some new spellings

11.15 - 12.15 - English activity - either reading, writing or grammar.

12.15 - 13.15 - Lunch

13.15 - 13.45 Quiet reading.

13.45 - 15.15 - Geography/Science/French activity. 

 

This is not a routine that we're saying you have to do - just if you wanted an idea of how to plan the days.  Please don't feel bad/guilty if you haven't done much at all today.  Find what works for you as a family (and that might be doing some cooking, playing games, going for a walk away from others). It's a funny time for all of us and the most important thing is that we all feel as happy and safe as we can. 

 

We'll aim to update the tasks available regularly and will certainly write a message to you as often as we can.  We are getting our heads around what learning will look like for you all over the foreseeable future, so please bear with us while we find our feet.

We're missing you all already!

Best wishes,

Mrs R, Mrs H and Mr P.
