Star of the Week 27.3.2020

This weeks star award goes to Charlie.  He has worked hard this week with all his home learning tasks and didn't give up even when he had ICT issues.  Well done Charlie.
Hello Year 5

I hope you are all safe and well and enjoying this glimpse of sunshine in your garden.  

I have been really impressed with so many of you who have been using both Purple Mash and LBQ to keep going with your learning.  I know it is difficult to keep going but it will help you so much when you do get back to school.

Don't forget about your other subjects too.  Take the time to develop your sketching skills, build your imagination and develop your creative thinking.  Exercise is good for the body and mind too so make sure your building some of this into your day.

Please feel free to drop me an email if you have any questions or even if you just feel like saying hi.
Hope to see you all again very soon.
Mrs McKay 
Hi Year 5.  I hope you are all keeping safe.

The tasks for this week beginning on 30.3.2020 are as follows:


Word splits - looking at parts of speech including nouns, verbs, adjectives and adverbs.
Box the word - converting nouns and adjectives into verbs using suffixes

Beth and The Nile - Chapter 2 - You must read this carefully before completing the connected tasks
Chapter 2 Multiple choice
Chapter 2 The conversation - continuing the conversation between the characters

Writing - Don't forget you are a Year 5 writer.  I need to see that in your writing
Cleopatra - create an information text showing what you know about Cleopatra (research needed first)
Egyptian House - explain to a friend how to build an Egyptian house using what is around you in Egypt.

Please use spelling shed to work on the year 5 spellings.  If you have forgotten your log in please use this one:
Username: jillm7

You will be sent a code for LBQ each day on Marvellous Me.  If your grown up does not have Marvellous Me, please ask them to drop me an email and I will send the code via email.  Please try to complete this daily as each challenge only lasts for 1 day.  If you struggle with any questions, just pop me an email and I will do my best to help you answer the question.  Maths 1 will be easier than Maths 2 but try and challenge yourself to do both.

Research Egyptian Art and produce a piece of work based on this. You can send me pictures of this by email ready for me to print them.  Please also complete the Purple Mash art task based on hieroglyphics.

Ancient Egyptian Timeline - you will need to do some research before completing this Purple Mash task.
