Hello Poplar and Pine!

We’ve loved looking at your work on SeeSaw so far, great job! Here is your homework for this week.

Have a go at the following activities and then submit your work on Seesaw, using the Seesaw code that has been stuck into your Reading Records. You can complete either on a piece of paper or by printing the sheets:

Spellings:

English

Write a setting description about the image below. Use the word mat below the image to help you. Use a thesaurus (you can use online ones) to help you come up with more synonyms!

Maths

For maths this week, why not have a go at the negative numbers game that we played in school! You will need either one dice or cut and number some paper 1-6 and place them face down. You either print the number line or draw your own one…and use whatever you like for the counters! Don’t forget to post your picture of your game and the scores!

Challenge (your child has been told if they are to complete the challenge sheets instead of the core sheets in maths and english):

Maths

For this activity, you don’t need to print them if you are unable to. You can just answer them on a sheet of paper with A and B as labels and draw the number lines directly onto your paper.

The answers are attached at the bottom of the sheets or as an additional document – no peeking!!

Don’t forget to use Spelling Shed and write in your Reading Record when you read at home, then put it on SeeSaw.

Homework and reading

Homework:

As we are trying to avoid cross-contamination of objects between home and school, we are now going to be uploading homework weekly on the blogs for you to access. In order for us to check the children’s homework, we have created individual Seesaw codes for the children, so they can scan their own code and take a photo of their homework to submit, and we will be able to see it in school. If you are unsure how how to use Seesaw, you can follow the steps below:

To sign in with a Home Learning Code:

1.      Open the Seesaw class app.

2.      Tap “I’m a student”.

3.      Tap the blue “scan code” button and scan the Home Learning Code or type in your Home Learning Text Code. 

In year 5, we will be setting maths and English homework on a Monday and it will need to be completed by Friday morning. Your child’s work will then be checked by staff in school.

Reading Records:

As well, we will be sending home Reading Records for the children to keep at home for now. When a child has read at home, the reading record can be filled in as before, however, rather than sending the reading record back into school, your child can take a photo of their reading record (as shown above) showing us what they have read or leave us a comment telling us directly on the app. That way, we can continue to keep a log of who is reading at home for our Reader Leader award!

Reading Books:

For the moment, children will be choosing books, with the guidance from staff in school, within their class libraries, to avoid cross-contamination from different bubbles within the school. These will be making their way home to you over the coming weeks. If your child brings a book home to read and finishes it, they can bring it back to school the next day and the book will be quarantined for 72 hours before being returned to the class library. Your child can then choose another book to read at home. Of course, a child can also read a book from home too! As well as physical copies of books, we have also signed up to Oxford Owl and Epic where children can access lots of e-books to read online (we can give guidance of what level books the children should be reading via your child’s Seesaw page if needed). Here are the log in details:

Children should then choose an appropriate reading book for the age.
