Y5 Closure Home Learning
Thursday 2nd April 2020
Good morning Year 5,
We hope that you all had a lovely day yesterday.
Our word of the day is treacherous- presenting unpredictable or hidden dangers.
The icy mountain path was incredibly treacherous and hikers were advised to use alternative routes.
Can you use our word of the day in a sentence?
From Monday 30th March 2020, all the Year 5 work will be set and managed on Google Classrooms.
We like this because you can view and use it on any device. If you can't use a computer all day, you only have access for a short time or can only use a smart phone then you can still use Google Classrooms.
Any Off-Line work you do can still be submitted as a picture.
|LOGGING IN:||All you need is your Chromebook log-on, which we have used many times in school.
|APP:||There's even an app you can get on Android devices and iPhones/iPads.|
Here are some videos to help:
How to submit work:
How to look at submitted work:
The main aim with all the activities we will be setting you, whilst the school is closed, is to make sure you keep using the vital skills we do everyday.
So how will you get it all in?
We suggest a small time table like the:
|9:00||Joe Wicks workout||LIVE on YouTube, starts just before 9am.|
|9:30||Recover with some read||See below|
|10:45||BREAK||Get outside whenever you can|
|12:00||Long Lunch||with a Movie|
|2:00||Something Different||Lots of ideas at the bottom|
There are many different organisations doing daily Activities/Lessons, often live on YouTube, which we thought you might be interested in.
11:00 - Daily
9:00 - Daily
9:30 - Daily
In the coming weeks we will set some writing challenges for you. But please feel free to write a diary of your time off, make up your own story or write a set of instructions.
Give your self freedom to write (no judgement), write freely for 10-15 minutes then read it through (out loud is always best) correct and improve anything you like.
When you've run out of books at home to read, we highly recommend ilovereadingforkids.co.uk
It's full of book extracts, which you can pick and read. You may end up buying one as an ebook or order have it for delivery. Remember to check any unknown vocabulary in a dictionary, by searching online or asking a smart device.
Your maths time can be split as you like. Keep it varied, keep it fun, keep it challenging.
Start with some online games, see below.
Then some Maths Whizz or something from our Home Learning pack or the textbook some of you got.
1) Maths Whizz:
Every student now has a MATHS WHIZZ log on, details have been sent home or via email.
All the children are aware of this system and how to use it. It is very clever and will support and challenge the children at their own level of ability and needs.
PLEASE CARRY OUT AT LEAST 3 HOURS PER WEEK ON MATHS WHIZZ.
2) Online Games
In class we have looked at a range of resources to make sure you are practising a range of maths skills.
With all of these, make sure you are picking a level that suits you and challenges you. There is nothing wrong with starting lower and building up.
5-Day Maths - a daily 5 questions with a huge range of maths disciplines.
Daily 10 - This will really help with a range of arithmetic.
And OFCOURES timetable practice with our favourite game - HIT THE BUTTON
Topmarks is also full of great maths games, which you can search for by topic or age.
Home Learning Packs:
1) Classroom Secrets - here is the pack that was sent home on the last day.
2) Hamilton Trust - have developed a series of daily activities. Both for English and Maths. This form of learning is similar to how it would be like at school.
Each will guide you through and has challenges to choose, sections to challenge and even some help if you are stuck.
This is great way to practice your artist skills, but also relax in an afternoon. We do like the step by step tutorials on oksketch.com but also we love (well Mr Moonie) a bit of Let's Draw Star Wars.
Typing is a skills we use now in class but is likely to something that will stay with you for life. Using a more formal method will help you become quicker and more accurate.
Dance Mat Typing is a scheme/game that will help you to learn

On YouTube, the BBC3 comedy show Taskmaster is setting very fun, simple but open ended tasks.
The first was to throw a piece of A4 paper in a bin. Of course very simple, but can you make it spectacular?
As the experts in developing skills and bringing adventure to young people, the scouts want to do what we can to help.
They normally love the great outdoors, they’ve pulled together some inspired indoor activity ideas. Keep yourselves learning new skills and having fun (and help your mum and dad avoid hearing ‘I’m bored’ every 30 seconds) all in #TheGreatIndoors. LINK HERE
