Hi Class 5GC, take a look at my videos and we can enjoy this book together. It is called Evie in the Jungle by Matt Haig. I’ll be reading each chapter to you, aloud, so I hope you enjoy it. πŸ˜ƒ πŸ“š πŸ“–
You may have already read this book and if so, then I hope you enjoy it again. Some of you may not have heard of it before and that is fine too. Whether you have or if you haven’t, that is fine. So, find somewhere comfortable and enjoy this book being read to you. πŸ‘πŸΌπŸ˜ƒ

6.7.20 Good morning to you all 5GC,

 

I hope you all had a good weekend and you didn't find it too windy.  Wasn't the wind strong? The home learning area has been updated for this week - please make sure you are completing lesson each day either from Oak National Academy or from BBC Bitesize.  All the links have been put on there for you, as well as a weekly schedule, so it is nice and easy to follow.  

Now for a bit of a moan........I've also been checking ActiveLearn and Times Tables Rock Stars - well done to those of you who have been regularly logging on and completing your tasks.  If you are one of our class who haven't been doing this, please make sure you attempt to.  This is our last push of Year 5 before you break up and then you have Year 6 expectations on the horizon.  Stay focused and determined! 

 

Well done to those who are trying their very best and working extremely hard; remember this is not a holiday.......yet!!!! Keep being the best that you can be.

 

See you soon,

 

Mr Cross

3.7.20 - Have a read of my '5GC Catch up with Mr Cross' newsletter that I've made for you! Let me know what you think and what you've been up to.

Good morning 5GC! Welcome to the last day of June.  I hope you all had a good weekend and took some time to get out and about although the weather was pretty unpleasant.  I wanted to say a big well done to everyone who completed the Oak National Academy work last week, let's hope that can continue this week.  All of the links to all lessons have been added to our webpage as well as those for BBC Bitesize Learning too. 

As you will all be Year 6 in the not too distant future, I thought you'd like to know that this week I am in school teaching in the 6B Bubble and we are looking at all things related to the Titanic.  Do you know what the Titanic was or why it is so important in history? We've completed our own research about the titanic - maybe you could do the same.  Have a go at researching the Titanic in as much detail as possible, recording a minimum of 10 facts.  Remember how to research safely and how to look for age-appropriate material by using ‘KS2’, ‘Year ‘6 or facts’ for children/kids’ when using your search engine.  For other inspiration you could visit Miss Ali's Noticeboard or the Year 6 Creative Curriculum area of the Year 6 webpage.

 

Give it a go and let me know how you get on using the email parentenquiry@marshgreen.bardaglea.org.uk

See you soon,

Mr. Cross

24.6.20

 

Apart from the lovely sunny and hot weather being a reason to celebrate, it is also National Writing Day today - celebrating the pleasure and power of creative writing.  National Writing Day is an annual celebration of the power of writing creatively, inspiring people of all ages and abilities to try writing for fun and self-expression.Creative writing allows you to decide everything you want to write about.  There is nothing that can be 'wrong' as you are in charge of it all.  What will you write about? If you follow the link  (found under Home Learning - English (Reading & Writing Activities) it is the very first link at the top of the page.  You can find all different ideas of things that might interest you - just take a scroll through the website.  There are videos to watch, ideas to start that creative sparkle and even a #247challenge!  As ever, send your ideas into the email address parentenquiry@marshgreen.bardaglea.org.uk so I can see them and add them to the Proud Cloud.

See you soon,

Mr Cross

 

(22.6.2020)  Hello 5GC,

I hope that you have all had a great week learning new things in Maths, English and Science as well as working hard across all areas of the curriculum.  It is supposed to be lovely weather this week so try and make the most of the opportunity and get outside as much as you can.  

 

This week (22.6.2020 - 26.6.2020) is 'National School Sport Week at Home 2020'.

This is an annual campaign to celebrate the power of sport. You can choose from a list of activities under a particular theme each day. An example of a theme is Aiming Sports, you could choose  an activity such as ... In the box – see how far away from a box you can get and still land your ball on target. Then challenge yourself to improve your personal best. 

 

Over the week you may want to challenge yourself to complete:
• An activity a day for the week
• As many activities as you can in one day, or
• Activities with as many people as you can at the same time

 

It would be great if you could capture your achievements through photos and videos and send them in the usual way so that we can add them to our class page.  There is a link to 'National School Sport Week at Home 2020'in the ‘Mindfulness and Keeping Active’ sub-page (right at the very top of this sub-page) so be sure to check it out.

 

Please also make sure you complete the daily lessons (Daily Learning - Oak National Academy) as this the minimum expectation. Please also remember to use Times Tables Rockstars too as this is an excellent times table resource. 

Further activities have also been allocated on  https://www.activelearnprimary.co.uk/login?c=0 . If you run out of reading material do read the allocated book 'Oranges in no man's land'. This book is a gripping story of a ten-year-old girl who risks death to make a lifesaving dash through war-torn Beirut. I'd be interested to hear your views on this book as I really enjoyed it! 

 

Please send any work to the website below:

parentenquiry@marshgreen.bardaglea.org.uk

 

Take care and have lots of fun.

Mr Cross
