Year 5 - Learning at Home

Year 5 Home Learning Monday 6th July - Friday 17th July

 

It has been so lovely to welcome some of you back to school over the last two weeks, and we look forward to seeing you again for your final two weeks. We understand, that for many reasons, not everyone can return to school yet and we very much miss you, but we have really enjoyed connecting with some of you on Zoom. These Zoom calls will continue from week beginning July 13th and parents will be emailed invites.

 

We are very much looking forward to welcoming Group A back into school on Monday 6th July, and Group B on Monday 13th July. We understand that not everyone can return to school at this time, so we will continue to set work for you to complete at your own pace on the website.

 

Group A (in school Monday 6th July to Thursday 9th July)

We will explain the home learning to you when you are in school. You are not expected to do any home learning this week as you will be in school.

 

Group B - (in school Monday 13th July to Thursday 16th July)

Please complete the work set Monday 6th July - Friday 17th July. Similarly to last week's work, we have set activities for English (carrying on with The Man Who Bought a Mountain) Maths (Statistics), Topic (carrying on with learning about Mountains) and Science (carrying on with Life Cycles). We have also added some project work for you to work through if you would like some extra activities.

 

All - Please also keep up with Times Table Rockstars, Spelling Shed and Lexia.

 

Have a super week Year 5.

 

All the best,

 

The Year 5 Team

Virtual Sports Day

Trafford Sports Partnership have planned a Virtual Sports Day for all children at home and in school to take part in. It's a series of simple differentiated challenges (all detailed clearly on the attached PPT) for which scores can be recorded and sent to the partnership via Twitter. Parents can send scores in themselves using Survey Monkey (see PPT), or for those at school we will send in the results. There are links on each slide to You Tube clips, further explaining how to do each challenge.

 

The Sports Day is planned for Wednesday 1st July with all scores needing to be sent in to the Partnership by Thursday 2nd at 3.30pm. Children can also take part without sending in scores if they wish. You can also do it on any day before this, if it fits better with your plans!

Returning to School Story

Please listen to, or read through, the story about returning to school. There are also some optional activities, which you may want to go through to support your return to school. We know that some of you may not be returning quite yet, but reading this story will also support you when the time does come for you to return. We miss each and every one of you, and can't wait to welcome you all back to Springfield when the time is right for you and your families.

Year 5 Home Learning Monday 22nd June - Friday 3rd July

We are very much looking forward to welcoming Group A back into school on Monday 22nd June, and Group B on Monday 29th June. We understand that not everyone can return to school at this time, so we will continue to set work for you to complete at your own pace on the website. We will also update this with additional activities so keep looking at the site!

 

Group A (in school Monday 22nd June to Thursday 26th June)

We will explain the home learning to you when you are in school. You are not expected to do any home learning this week as you will be in school.

 

Group B - (in school Monday 29th June to Thursday 2nd July)

Please complete the work set Mon 22nd June - Fri 26th June. Similarly to last week's work, we have set activities for English (carrying on with The Man Who Bought a Mountain) Maths (division), Topic (carrying on with learning about mountains) and Science (carrying on with Life Cycles).

 

All - Please also keep up with Times Table Rockstars, Spelling Shed and Lexia.

From Monday 15th June 2020

 

PLEASE NOTE!

 

Our approach to home learning is continually adapting. The Class Teachers of Year 2-5 have all been adding narration to some of the PowerPoints for our lessons. Unfortunately due to the size of these PowerPoints we have had to split some of them into smaller parts so we can upload them to the school website.

 

Hello Year 5,

 

We hope that you are all keeping positive despite the news of not now returning to school this summer term. It can be easy to feel a bit down during these times, but we are really looking forward to seeing some of you on our video calls next week. Those children that have signed up by email to our video calls, will receive an email with the video link and time slot. You should receive this email at the beginning of next week. You will also receive information about what you will be expected to prepare to talk about for this call alongside your link email.

 

English - From today, your weekly activities will be split into 4 different English sessions. 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.

 

Maths - This week’s focus is multiplication using the formal written method. We have covered this in class but it is something that needs to be repeated to build on your confidence.

 

Topic - This term in our Geography topic we are going to be learning all about Mountains. Each week, we will upload a new set of learning sessions for you to work through at your own pace.

 

Science - This term in Science we are going to focus on The Life Cycles of Plants and Animals. There is one session to follow and a challenge activity if you wish!

 

On some of the PowerPoints you should be able to hear some narration. Depending on your computer, it may play automatically or you may have to look out for a speaker icon on each page to hear the narration. You may need to press F5 to get it into slideshow mode. Let us know through our year group email if you are having any problems accessing this.

 

Have a great week everyone.

 

From the Year 5 Team.

Good Morning Year 5!

 

We hope you are all well, and enjoyed some relaxing times over the half term holiday. We are all well, but we are all missing you and often thinking about how you are all doing. Thank you so much to all parents and carers, who are sending updates – it is lovely to hear from all of you. Parents and carers can still send in photos and updates and we LOVE hearing news about what you are getting up to! 

 

This week we have packed the Year 5 site more learning opportunities for you to get stuck into. Have a look across all sections for new challenges, but remember to take it easy and go at your own pace. If you have any questions about any of the learning, your parents can email us and we will be on hand to support and respond.

 

 

As a school, we are still busy making phone calls to you and your families so if you haven't had one, don't worry as you will receive one very soon - we will leave a message if you are not available on the number that we have for you, and will always call back and try again. It has been so lovely hearing your voices, and we can't wait to connect with each and every one of you!

 

 

Have a super week, and we will be back next week with more learning activities for you to do.

 

All the very best,

 

The Year Five Team.

Week Beginning Monday 1st June

Good Morning Year 5!

 

We hope you are all well, and enjoying some relaxing times over the half term holiday. 

 

As mentioned last week, we have now put up an activity grid with optional activities for you to try over the half tern break. There are lots of ideas to keep you busy (if you wish!) and get creative. With all this sunshine, the changes in nature are accelerating more quickly than they normally do, so keep your eyes peeled for some these changes when out and about.

Good Morning Year 5!

 

We hope you have all had a relaxing Bank Holiday weekend, and enjoyed some of the beautiful sunshine yesterday.

 

You have all been working so hard over the last 9 weeks, that this week we are not going to put up learning activities, as it would be half-term, and we would like you to have a brain break instead. There are still lots of activities across the site that you could continue to do, or you could read a book, do a piece of art or immerse yourself in nature. Next week, we will post an activity grid which is full of fun activities for you to try - if you wish!

 

Parents and carers can still send in photos and updates and we LOVE hearing news about what you are getting up to! 

 

As a school, we have all been busy making phonecalls to you and your families so if you haven't had one, don't worry as you will receive one within the next two weeks - we will leave a message if you are not available on the number that we have for you, and will always call back and try again. It has been so lovely hearing your voices, and we can't wait to connect with each and every one of you!

 

We know it's not the same, but try and have some holiday time, and tell us about it! Stay safe, try to relax a little this week and we will be in touch again very soon!

 

All the very best, 

 

The Year Five Team

 

 

Week Beginning Monday 18th May 2020

Good Morning Year 5!

 

How are you all this week? We have been thinking of you all so much, and wondering how each and every one of you is doing, and how you are passing your time. Did you have a go at the art challenge? And did any of you get your engineering hats on? We’d love to see and hear about what you’ve been up to. Remember, parents can email us photos, videos or examples of work on the Year 5 email address.

 

It is great to hear that so many of you are accessing the work on the website, but we know it must be so hard to learn away from the classroom, your friends and your teachers. Please remember, it is very different learning at home and that you can only do the best that you can, which is enough! When we all return to school – safely – we will all be there on hand to support your learning and go over the areas that you find challenging.

 

We love Mrs Hancock’s video message about keeping up with the school values, and never has it been more important to Support and Care for Each Other. Maybe you have been keeping up with the kindness notes? Or helping around the house? Or video-calling a grandparent to brighten their day? There are so many things we can all do to support and care for each other – check out our Seven Days of Kindness Calendar on https://www.springfieldprimarysale.co.uk/feelings-and-emotions/

 

So, while learning is still important, this week we would like to focus on mental health. It is also Mental Health Awareness Week across the UK. We have had many a discussion in class together about the importance of keeping our minds healthy, and never has this been more important than in current times. Team 5 will all be busy today uploading activities for you to do to help you keep your minds healthy. You can find these at https://www.springfieldprimarysale.co.uk/feelings-and-emotions/

 

As always, keeping active has never been more important. We are all missing out on the little trips like walking to school, or the shop, or more rigorous training for team sports. You can still keep this up by doing exercise at home. The more you do, the better you will feel!

 

As always, try to maintain a positive attitude, continue to help out at home and find joy in the little things that in your normal busy lives, you might not have the time to discover.

 

Our very best wishes to you and your families,

 

The Year 5 Team

Week Beginning Monday 11th May 2020

Good Morning Year 5!

 

Hope you had some fun over the extended Bank Holiday weekend. What did you do to celebrate VE Day? We‘d love to see some photos or examples of activities you might have done. Both Friday and Saturday were so beautiful and sunny, so we hope you made it outside to enjoy some of the Spring sunshine.

 

We hope you have all had the chance to see the Reach for the Stars video that Mrs Garbett has compiled. It brought both a tear and smile to all our faces, but certainly helped us realise what a wonderful community we have at Springfield.

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=QBUXtBHEo9Q

 

Another huge thank to your parents for the all the positive updates and emails, and for continuing to support your home learning – have you put any little notes in the kindness jar?

 

We have also been busy filling the site with lots of suggested activities for you to have a go at this week. We know it can be tough without teaching staff to guide you, but we know you will give your very best, and that’s enough! As well as maths and English, there are always activities in other subjects to try out – geography, history, art, RE and Spanish are all areas of learning that you can get on with independently. Maybe you have developed a new hobby while on lockdown. Why not tell us about it? We’d love to hear from you.

 

A huge well done to all the Lexia users! It is so great to see that you are using this useful resource. It is also fantastic to see how many of you are challenging yourselves on Times Table Rockstars and the Spelling Shed. Keep up the excellent work.

 

Yesterday’s announcement indicated that, although some of the rules will be relaxed, we are still being asked to stay safe at home. We thought it would be a good distraction to use your artistic skills to create a memory book, so we have set you this Art Challenge.

 

As it is not going to be quite as warm this week, you may not be able to potter about in outdoor spaces quite so much, so we have sourced some Science & Engineering Challenges to get your creative thinking going.

 

Both these challenges are in https://www.springfieldprimarysale.co.uk/just-for-fun/ and remember, we’d love to see some photos of what you have created!

 

As always, keeping active has never been more important. We are all missing out on the little trips like walking to school, or the shop, or more rigorous training for team sports. You can still keep this up by doing exercise at home. The more you do, the better you will feel!

 

We know these are challenging times for you, which means normal life isn’t that normal, and that we have to miss special times in our lives. The Year 5 Team would all much prefer to be learning and doing fun things together. We all miss you so much and could not be prouder of how well you are all doing. So, try to maintain a positive attitude, continue to help out at home and find joy in the little things that in your normal busy lives, you might not have the time to discover.

 

Our very best wishes to you and your families,

 

The Year 5 Team

 

VE Day Celebrations

Week Beginning Monday 27th April 2020

Hello Year 5!

 

Hope you all had a lovely relaxing weekend!

 

A big thank you to your parents for the positive updates about how you are getting on.  

 

Hope you all enjoyed the learning activities we set last week. Throughout today, we will be updating reading, writing, SPAG and maths. We also populate the site across the week with fun activities, so keep your eye out for some of these – science, history, geography, RE and art are all important subjects to keep with.

 

We know it must be tricky to manage learning whilst at home, and we are sure that all families are finding ways that work for them. So, as Mrs Garbett suggested in her letter to the whole school, try to keep your daily learning up, but also take plenty of active breaks. Perhaps, as in school, you could focus on English and maths in the morning, and other subjects (or pursue your new hobby) in the afternoon – whatever works for you, we know you’ll be doing your very best!

 

Huge well done to all those who have you been challenging yourselves on Times Table Rock Stars and Spelling Shed! We wonder who will make the leader-boards this week… but also remember that, while it may be tempting to spend more time online than usual, staying safe is really important. Why not refresh skills with some hints and tips? https://www.springfieldprimarysale.co.uk/staying-safe-online/

 

We are thinking of you all, and really proud of your efforts to keep learning.

 

Keep positive and stay safe!

 

Best wishes to you and your families,

 

The Year 5 Team

Week Beginning Monday 20th April 2020

Hello Year 5!

 

Hope you all had a lovely relaxing weekend and are continuing to enjoy this lovely sunshine.

 

A huge thank you for all the photos and updates so we can see what you are getting up to. It is so lovely to see your smiling faces! If you haven’t already done so, please ask your parents to take a few snaps and email them over to the Year 5 Team - if you’ve made, written, devised, invented, cooked, dug up, spotted anything, we’d love to hear from you!

 

Hope you all enjoyed the activities we set last week. Throughout today, we will be updating reading, writing, SPAG and maths. And, again on Thursday we will update some of the other curriculum sections. Did you have a go at the science escape room challenge? There’s still time yet! And have you been challenging yourselves on Times Table Rock Stars, Lexia and Spelling Shed? We wonder who will make the leader-boards this week…

 

This week the BBC have launched a new site, with lots of learning activities so check them out here: https://www.bbc.co.uk/bitesize/tags/zhgppg8/year-5-lessons/1

 

Please also remember to pace these activities throughout the week, take lots of breaks, keep active and try out some new hobbies. We will also continue to update the other sections regularly, so keep checking for new stuff.

 

Finally, remember that if you had to miss a few days of the last week before school closed that you can still pick up your target booklets with website passwords from the front entrance of school.

 

We are thinking of you all, and are continuously getting our “virtual” heads together to come up with ways to make your learning fun while we are not in school.

 

Keep positive and stay safe!

 

Best wishes to you and your families,

 

The Year 5 Team

Week Beginning Tuesday 14th April 2020

 

Hello Year 5!

 

Hope you all had some fun and relaxation over the Easter weekend, sharing some memorable times with your families, and enjoying some of the early Spring sunshine.

 

On what would be the first day back at school, the Year 5 Team are really missing you all, and wondering what you have all been up to. You will be able to read about some of things we have been getting up to in the weekly “Teachers’ Corner”, which you will notice is now called “Children and Teacher’s Corner” as we would like your parents to share photos (via the Year 5 email) and we will load these on the site.

 

We have also made a few changes to the Year 5 home-learning pages, which we hope will make it easier for you to follow the suggested activities. As Mrs Garbett said in her letter last week, it is important that you keep up with your learning, but take plenty of breaks and keep as active as you can. We will upload Maths and English activities on Mondays (this week, Today – Tuesday) and follow up with activities for other subjects on Thursdays. Remember to pace these activities throughout the week – they don’t need to be done all in one go – we wouldn’t expect this of you at school, and less so now. We will also continue to update the other sections regularly, so keep checking for new content.

 

Finally, remember that if you had to miss a few days of the last week before school closed that you can still pick up your target booklets with website passwords from the front entrance of school.

 

We are thinking of you all, and are continuously getting our “virtual” heads together to come up with ways to make your learning fun while we are not in school.

 

Keep positive and stay safe!

 

Best wishes to you and your families,

 

The Year 5 Team

Week 3 - w/b 6.4.2020

 

Hello Year 5!
All of the Year 5 team are sending lots of well wishes to you and your families. We hope that you have been able to enjoy your time at home so far and have spent some quality time with your families.

 

This week would have still been the Easter Holidays so we have decided to provide some Easter activities for you to enjoy and to keep you occupied whilst still leaving you plenty of time to relax and have some down time with your families. We will be providing some general Easter fun activities in the 'Topic' section of the Year 5 Home Learning page. We will also be providing some Easter-related Maths challenges in the 'Maths' section. Please remember that there are lots of links under the 'keeping active' section - as you all know, staying active is very important to help keep you happy and healthy!

 

Parents and carers, as a team, and as a whole school, I'm sure you will appreciate that we are working hard to plan ahead for the coming weeks of teaching and we are constantly in conversations to work out the best route forward to ensure we are supporting the children's learning as much as we can but also keeping in mind the pressures on both children and parents to maintain academic progress. We understand that everyone has slightly different circumstances and we strive to cater for all as best we can. You may see some changes to the Year 5 Home Learning page over the next week or so to try and make it easier to navigate. Something that we are particularly aware of is the increased 'screen time' that may be occurring due to teaching be provided via the website; as you'll appreciate, there is no way of getting around this completely, however, we are trying to adapt many activities so they can take place away from a screen.

We really hope you enjoy the coming week with your families, thank you for the support always! Keep positive and stay safe!

From the Year 5 Team.

Week Two - 30th March 2020

 

Dear Year 5,

 

We hope you are all now settling into a bit of a routine, and staying safe at home. The weather last week was amazing - more of that sunshine please!

 

By now, we are sure you have completed the (optional) activities that we put on the website, so we have updated some of the sections with some additional activities to occupy yourselves. Remember, it is now the Easter holidays, so go easy on yourselves and give yourselves lots of brain and exercise breaks. 

 

We are all doing well - keeping fit and active, eating well and focusing on the positives, even though we would do anything to get back to our busy Springfield lives with you all!

 

Wishing you and your families well - keep smiling!

 

Miss Torrance, Miss Landi & Miss Beddow.

Week One - 23rd March 2020

Dear Year 5 Children and Parents,

 

Welcome to our ‘Home Learning’ page.

 

As, for the foreseeable future, we will be unable to continue our learning together at school, we have set up this page to support your learning from home.

 

It is really important that we all continue to learn, keep up our routine (as best as possible) and keep active during these changing times to keep our minds and bodies healthy.

Please check these pages regularly for information regarding home learning.

 

We would just like to take this opportunity to say a huge thank you to all our parents for your continued support, and to the children for their resilience and good humour. We wish everyone a safe and quick return to normality (as soon as possible we hope).

 

Year 5 Teachers
