Good morning Year 5! I hope you have a GREAT day!

Your work is organised into the days of the week below.

Please try your best to have a look at the Maths and English lessons at a minimum for each day of the week. Remember: you choose your challenge. If you want to do a few questions or ALL of them, that's fine.

We all work at different levels, speeds and abilities. You just work to the best of yours! 

Afternoon sessions are there on the days we would usually do them in school but you can do them in any order if you want.

Keep an eye out for some videos from me too! 

Don't forget to scroll to the end of the page to see some extra projects like the Year of the Word, Times Tables/Mental Maths websites, and other websites if you want to do some extra learning yourself by taking responsibilty of your own learning. :-)

English - Reading

We are starting our new History topic this week! Your reading session is based around the Ancient Greeks! 

Other Reading Activities this week

-Ask your child to read a chapter from their home reading book.

-Following this, ask your child to summarise the events from the chapter. They could bullet point what happened, create a comic strip or present the information in their own creative way.

-Encourage your child to note down any unfamiliar words from the chapter they have read. Explore the meanings of these words by using a dictionary, reading around the sentence or using print conventions.

-Challenge your child to read something around the house that isn't a book. They can then keep a record of all these. 

If you want to read some eBooks or if you have run out of your own to read (scroll down to "Books for Older Children" or "Books for Young Adults")

RE

New unit - Baptism

This first session is all about the Baptism of Jesus by his cousin, John the Baptist. You will need to use your home Bibles to look up the accounts of Jesus' baptism. 

Your main task is to write about what happened from John's perspective.

Your final task is to illustrate the story and write the thoughts and feelings of everyone who was present. 

Art

Over the next few weeks, we will be exploring the work of artists who use very ordinary objects and materials to make exciting and imaginative pieces of artwork.

This week, we're going to take inspiration from German illustrator, Stefan Kuhnigk.

One day, Stefan spilt some coffee on this paper. He decided to turn his coffee spill into a monster. What did he create? Take a look through the Teaching Slideshow and you can get creating too! 

Have fun! 

The God who Speaks - Year of the Word

Whole School Project

Please use this PowerPoint to use as a family for the Month of January to mark the New Year. The aim of the Year of the Word is to be a special year of focus on the Bible. During this year we are called to explore and celebrate the Word of God through the Scriptures, share the Word with others and respond to the "God who speaks" in the way that we live.

The focus is St. Mark's Gospel, but you can read any passage you wish! The Wednesday Word is an instant way to share Scripture and the meaning together each week. 

Please use the slideshow below together, read the Bible, discuss the message and maybe how we can use it in our own lives. It's up to you if you want to share a Bible story every day or once a week. There are also activity ideas for you to complete also! 

 

There is a link to the CAFOD website that has lots of extra resources for children that you can use for the Year of the Word too! 

Times Tables/Number facts

Please say them to yourself or with someone in your house, write them out, write/say the multiples etc. Please continue your times tables practice on TT Rockstars. There are lots of other websites and activities you can use if you want to such as:
