Week Beginning Monday 15th June 2020
From today, your weekly activities will be split into 4 different English sessions. You can find these under each week’s heading (starting with this week as Week 1) and they are narrated, talking you through the learning.
We are starting a new story this week called The Man Who Bought a Mountain. You can use the PDF version of the story. Please find your version and download it, as we will be working with it throughout our sessions. It may be useful to have a printed version of the PDF but only if this is possible.
Most sessions will be split into two, labelled a and b, as the files are too large to upload all at once. It might be a good idea to download these all at once so you have them ready for the session.
Week Beginning 8th June 2020
Under each of the STARS are new weekly activities for you to complete throughout the week. There is an exciting new reading activty, a writing activity and a SPAG activity to keep your grammar skills up. Remember to continue reading for pleasure too!
If you haven't already done so, please sign into the Spelling Shed as starting next week the top five users over the previous 7 days will get a big SHOUT OUT on this site. Additionally, Y5 Lexia users please sign in to Lexia to keep up with your progression on the programme. The top five students with the most logged minutes will also get a SHOUT OUT on the site.
And remember, if you would like to share any work please ask your parents to send a photo or file to us to us and we will put it up on the site.
It is really important that you continue reading all types of fiction and non-fiction text. One of the best ways to relax is to take yourself to another world in a really good book! We will be updating with this page with recommendations in the coming weeks.
In the meantime, have a go at these reading comprehension activities. Finished quickly and hungry for more? Why not make up your own questions about a book you are reading.
Why not make English active?
Roll and Rhyme
Resources needed: A ball and other people
To play this game, pass a ball by rolling, throwing, kicking or bouncing it to someone. The first person says a word i.e. bat. All other players then have to say a word that rhymes with the first word as the ball reaches them. For example cat, mat, chat etc.
Think of your spellings lists or the imaginative words we have been using in our writing which you could rhyme to make the game more challenging!
See if you can act out the different components to a sentence.
For example, jumping for a space, a tall, straight shape for a capital letter, a curled, tucked shape for a full stop.
To recap our Year 5 sentence work:
Be as imaginative as you can!
