Golden Eagles (Y5)

Golden Eagles - Week beginning 6th July

2020-07-06 09:18:31 vbower

Good morning!

I hope that you’re all keeping well and have had a lovely weekend.

I have phoned round and managed to speak to most of you. It was lovely chatting to you and getting to know what you’ve been up to. There are a couple of people who I have tried to phone a few times and haven’t got through; please contact me if there’s anything that you’re concerned with or if you’d like to talk to me.

On National Oak Academy this week, the focus in English is on short stories. At the end of the week, you will be asked to write a short story based on the myth of Hercules, involving a mythical creature.

In maths, the focus is on solving a range of problems; these lessons would be very useful in showing how you can apply your maths knowledge to problem solving. There are many other lessons for you to access, including Spanish, electrical circuits and music. Let me know which ones you have a go at.

Well done again to all those children who are continuing to complete the tasks on Active Learn. I have added some extra maths, spelling and grammar challenges for this week and please continue to practise your multiplication tables on TT Rockstars.

Take care and I’m looking forward to reading your short stories.

Golden Eagles - Week beginning 29th June

2020-06-29 09:03:40 vbower

Hello everyone!

I hope you have all had a lovely weekend, although I am not impressed with the weather this morning – I’ve got used to having blue skies and beautiful weather.

Again, this week I would like you to continue to use the lessons on the Oak National Academy website. In maths, quadrilaterals is the focus and then the focus moves onto investigating properties of 3D shapes. Towards the end of the week, you will be looking at 2D nets of 3D shapes.

In English, the focus is on newspaper reports. During the week, you will be looking at features of newspaper reports and investigating how they are structured. By the end of the week, I would like you to write a newspaper report about a real event in the news or an event that you have made up.

There are also other lessons you could try. In science, there continues to be a focus on electricity looking at electrical conductors and insulators. There is also an interesting lesson about a city in Brazil, which is has become a ‘green’ city that includes innovative design and holds sustainability at its heart.

Well done again to all those children who are continuing to complete the tasks on Active Learn. I have added some extra maths, spelling and grammar challenges for this week and please continue to practise your multiplication tables on TT Rockstars.

I look forward to hearing from you soon and I’m looking forward to read your newspaper reports.

Take care,

Mrs Bower

Golden Eagles - Week beginning 22nd June

2020-06-22 09:28:33 vbower

Hello everyone!

I hope you have all had a lovely weekend.

Last week, I received some fantastic pieces of writing discussing whether school uniform should be banned and some interesting facts about Buddhism. I loved seeing the work you produced and I’m looking forward to see what you get up to this week.

This week I would like you to continue to use the lessons on the Oak National Academy website. In maths, the focus is on 2D shape – looking at the properties of polygons, triangles and quadrilaterals.

In English, the focus is on biographies. During the week, you will be looking at examples of biographies and investigating how they are structured. By the end of the week, I would like you to write a biography about someone you are particularly interested in.

There are also other lessons you could try. In science, there continues to be a focus on electricity and drawing circuits using symbols. You could also have a look at the art lesson, which is all about the artist Henri Matisse.

Well done again to all those children who are continuing to complete the tasks on Active Learn. I have added some extra maths, spelling and grammar challenges for this week and please continue to practise your multiplication tables on TT Rockstars.

I look forward to hearing from you soon.

Golden Eagles - Week beginning 15th June

2020-06-15 17:59:21 vbower

Hello everyone!

I hope you are all enjoying the beautiful weather we are having!

Thank you to all those children sending me photos of everything they have been up to and the fantastic pieces of writing they have produced. Seeing photos of you all really does put a huge smile on my face!

I am still trying to contact everyone’s parents/carers to find out how you are getting on. If you haven’t heard from me yet, you should do soon.

Again, I would like you to continue to use the lessons on the Oak National Academy website. In maths this week, the focus continues to be on decimals – multiplying decimals and solving a range of problems involving decimals.

In English, the focus is on discussion texts.  At the end of the week, you will be asked to produce a piece of writing, giving a balanced argument about whether school uniform should be banned. Please send me any writing you do.

If you get chance, I’d love you to have a look at the science lesson, which is all about electrical circuits and the art lesson where you’ll be asked to produce a piece of abstract art inspired by a Spanish artist called Juan Miro.

Well done to all those children who are continuing to complete the tasks on Active Learn. I have added some extra maths, spelling and grammar challenges for this week. Please continue to practise your multiplication tables on TT Rockstars.

Take care,

Mrs Bower

Good morning everyone!

 

I hope you are all keeping safe and well.

It was lovely to hear from so many of you last week – sharing films, photographs and pieces of work, so please keep up the great work and keep sending me your photos.

I’m currently phoning everyone’s parents/carers to find out how you are getting on. If you haven’t heard from me yet, you should do soon.

I would like you to continue to use the lessons on the Oak National Academy website. In maths this week, the focus is on multiplying decimals, which will be useful. We haven’t covered this in class so listen carefully to the lessons. If you have any problems, please let me know. In English, the focus is on non-chronological reports and at the end of the week, you ‘ll be asked to write a non-chronological report about a mythical creature. I would love to see your writing.

Well done to all those children who are continuing to complete the tasks on Active Learn. I have added some extra maths, spelling and grammar challenges for this week.

Please continue to read every day and to practise your multiplication tables on TT Rockstars.

I look forward to hearing from you soon.
