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,
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 firstname.lastname@example.org
See you soon,

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!
Take care and have lots of fun.
