Literacy Shed is a wonderful visual resource for writing. Give the video ‘The Planets’ a watch. Your writing challenge for this week is to write a description of each planet using noun phrases (see image below to remind yourselves),full sentences and parenthesis (extra information added to a sentence using brackets, dashes or commas). Don’t forget to use some ambitious vocabulary to make your planet descriptions engaging…
Please add your writing to the seesaw account for year 5.
We have created a way to share some of your brilliant home learning with us!
This is what you need to do:
Download ‘Seesaw Class’ app on a tablet or phone.
Select ‘I am a Student’
Scan the QR code
To post a picture of your work:
Select the green plus at the top of the page
Take a photo of whatever you want to share with us and then select the green tick
Choose which class you are in and then the green tick again
NOTE TO PARENTS: Children are familiar with SeeSaw as we use it in class.
Things you should know:
We have made this secure so no-one else can access your work or pictures.
You will not be able to see other children’s work and others cannot see your work.
Because it is secure, you will not be able to see your work once you’ve submitted it BUT don’t worry, we will still be able to see it but PLEASE make sure you add your first name (not surname but initial is ok if you share the same first name as another child in year 5).
We look forward to seeing your work and you enjoying your learning.
Use Literacy Shed videos to write diaries, recounts, narratives, newspaper reports, non-chronological reports, settings/character descriptions! The ideas are endless! https://www.literacyshed.com/home.html
Explore the sections on Find Out, Make and Do, Games and Quizzes, Stories and Songs, Fun with German.
Practise the topics you have learnt this year on german-games.net – most of you have used this website in class. You click on Topics and choose a topic, do the tutorial and then play the games. If you are wanting a challenge, choose a topic you haven’t learnt yet and learn some new words.
You could try and cook a German recipe https://www.tasty-german-recipe.com/kid-recipes.html with the help of an adult of course. There are lots of recipes on this site. Take a photo of what you make to show us. You could find out about one of these topics and do a project on it: German cars, German sports stars, German football teams, a town or region in Germany……
Have a look daily at these interesting questions posed and discussed on CBBC. They are available on iPlayer to catch up if you cannot watch at the time it is shown. Pick your favourite ‘what if…’ question and write your own thoughts and opinions on the topics…
The above is a link to White Rose maths which are offering home learning opportunities. Not only do they offer tasks and sets of answers, they are offering videos to demonstrate the skill to support your learning. Please use this time – year 5 – to continue to develop and practise the skills you have become used to practising in class – particularly recent use of decimals. Any questions? Just ask! Keep me updated with how you are doing 🙂
