Blaise Primary School And Nursery

Creating Success. Laying foundations, thriving on challenge and believing we can.

Good morning, Year 5!

What beautiful sunshine we've had over the past few weeks!

If you are passing our school on Crow Lane for a walk, have a look for the big rainbow on the school fence. We are thinking about you everyday.

Message before the Easter holidays:

Dear Year 5 children and parents,

Well done for reaching the end of Term 4 in such a strange set of circumstances. We are proud of all of you! Thank you to all parents for your immense support over the past couple of weeks and for supporting your children with their learning where you can.

We will not be sharing daily learning tasks throughout the Easter holidays. However, there will be optional 2Dos on Purple Mash should you wish to do them along with an  optional holiday project which we will share on Monday 6th April. Seesaw will also still be available for children to contact us. 

We will resume setting work for on Monday 20th April, 2020. As it's a new term, rather than continuing with the curriculum and attempting to teach the children new topics which we have not yet covered in school, we will be setting optional themed tasks instead.

We wish you all a lovely and restful Easter and we hope you are all safe and well. 

Mrs Harrison and Miss Mitchell

 

Is this work compulsory?

On this page we will upload a range of activities which relate to all areas of the curriculum. This is to give you more choice over which activities you would like to do. Our priority is your happiness and wellbeing during this difficult time, though we know that lots of you like keeping up with the work to keep some routine! Please continue reading and practising your times tables regularly, but remember that the rest of the work set here is optional.

 

Apps you need access to:

Your child has a login to practise their times tables on the PiXL times tables app - this can be downloaded free from any app store.

Some of the learning we set will be allocated on Purple Mash which your child also has login details for. 

Your child has a Seesaw QR code, which is also present on any homework sheets from this year. We would love you to use this to share photos of any home learning.

 

If you'd like any help from us, please email school@blaiseprimaryandnursery.co.uk with the  subject of FAO: Miss Mitchell or FAO: Mrs Harrison in the subject heading and your message will be forwarded straight to us.

Easter Break

As mentioned above, we will not be setting work during the school holidays. Please see the flyer sent home last week to read about the expectations of home learning moving forward.

Should you wish to complete any learning, there are:

  • a couple of regular Purple Mash games set for you to do still.
  • website suggestions on the flyer in the downloads.
  • competition suggestions on the flyer in the downloads.

We will also leave the work that we set over the past 3 weeks on here in case you wish to catch up on any activities you missed.

Have a wonderful break, Year 5. Remember to wash your hands regularly and only leave the house once a day if absolutely necessary to keep all of our loved ones safe.

Speak to you all soon!

Miss Mitchell & Mrs Harrison

 

 

 

Weekly Reflection 

Take some time to yourself to listen to some calm music and think about these questions. You can write down the answers in a journal like we do at school, or just think about them to yourself.

Alternatively, you can make a poster / podcast / presentation / speech recapping everything we have learned in science this term. This should help remind you what we have learned:

With all this online learning, it is really important that you write regularly, otherwise all the muscle memories that were made to create your beautiful handwriting will be forgotten when we return to school! 

Maths 

Once you have had a go at the arithmetic and reasoning starter, we are moving onto looking at tables with 2 sets of information in them. These are called two-way tables. They are a great way of having lots of information show in a table.

Remember: if you get stuck, you can ask us questions on Purple Mash emailPurple Mash Blog and Seesaw!

Science

Today is meant to be a beautiful, sunny day! Take advantage of the sun by doing some investigations with shadows. Follow these steps:

  • Find an object that is in a sunny spot (inside or outside!)
  • Measure the length of the shadow from the base of that object to the top of the shadow every hour over the course of the day. You can download the data table or make your own.
  • Input your data onto Purple Mash and create a line graph over time.

1) What is happening to the shadow during the day? What is the maths story?

2) Can you explain why this is happening? These words may help you: sun, rays, orbit, Earth, day, rotation

Maths

If you have completed the science work above, you can use the “real life” data to create a graph on Purple Mash.

There are some problems using line graphs on the worksheet for you to complete with different levels of challenge for you to choose from; choose whichever suits your confidence level best.

Times Tables

Practise your times tables on the PiXL app or Purple Mash times tables 2Do

Reading Comprehension

Read each question carefully, then look for the answer in the text.

Remember the helicopter analogy: fly above the text, when you find what you are looking for, land the helicopter and understand that paragraph in depth.

Reading

If you are worried about running out of stories while we are out of school, we will occasionally share some links to online sources of stories for you to enjoy. Today’s link is a playlist of videos of authors reading aloud their stories. You can just listen and enjoy, or read along with them!

RE

Using Purple Mash, can you create a story retelling the Easter Story. Think about everything we have been learning about this term, from Palm Sunday all the way through to the Resurrection on Easter Sunday. Draw a picture and tell the story of each event on a new page. Once you’re done, complete the activity sheet in the downloads to reflect on what we have learnt about the Easter story this term.

If you missed the learning in class, there is a PowerPoint in the downloads to recap the events.

PSHE

This week’s topic in Jigsaw is healthy eating. What does a healthy plate of food look like? Take a photo of your healthy plate of food today and post it to Seesaw, or draw one using the drawing tool on there.

What are the health benefits from eating healthily? What is your relationship with food like?

Extension: Post a video on Seesaw of you putting someone (or a toy!) into the recovery position.

Which dad do you think should get to go to space with the children? Why? Write a persuasive argument (3-4 paragraphs) explaining your reasons. Remember to use adverbial phrases as that has been the focus this week. In a persuasive argument, you need to also address the reasons why people might think that father is not the best one, to prove them wrong.

MFL 

The sheets on instruments are in the downloads for you to have a go at. As I am not there to teach you the words, use Google Translate to learn the new words. You can also hear how they are pronounced by pressing the speaker button. I’d love to see some videos of you practising your Spanish speaking on Seesaw, too!

Remember to continue to read for at least half an hour every day, practise your times tables on the PiXL app, and practise your spellings.

PE

Try and get your 1 hour of exercise in today that you would usually get doing tag-rugby. If you can’t leave your home, you could do some balancing, yoga, or anything to get your heart-rate up! Why don’t you try this activity to improve your coordination and agility?

Put out 5 sheets of paper on the floor, shoulder width apart, in a line. Then complete the following:

  1. Double leg jumps through the gaps.
  2. Single leg hops through the gaps.
  3. Snake / Zig-Zag between them.
  4. Push-up sidewalks over them.
  5. Underarm throws of something safe so it lands on a piece of paper.

If you find it too easy the first time (and if you have space!) then spread them out a bit more!

Suggested Timetable
Dear Parents / Carers,
 
We have had some requests to have access to our class timetable in order to structure a day of home-learning. Though we are not strictly following our class timetable now that learning is not being done in school, attached is a suggested timetable that you may wish to follow or use as a guide. Please note: this is simply a suggested timetable, not a requirement. Please use at your discretion.
 
Many thanks,
Mrs Harrison and Miss Mitchell
