Summer Reading Challenge
Please see below a link to the Summer Reading Challenge.
Mrs Leader and Mrs Middleton
we are now entering our last full week of term time, so I will set work that will keep you busy until we break up and this will be the last time that I update the page, this academic year. I hope that you've all managed to enjoy the lovely weather this weekend and got involved with last week's challenge. A new one will be posted tomorrow.
For English and Maths this week, please continue to use BBC Bitesize's daily lessons, or The Oak Academy website. You are all in different routines, so choose whichever one works best for you.
I've been thinking about Topic this week and would like you to research Jane Goodall, plus one other person who works closely with nature (for example, David Attenborough, Steve Irwin, Timothy Treadwell, Jacques Cousteau).
1. Research their work and make notes.
2. Write a non-choronological report about both of the people that you have chosen.
3. Include pictures in your report
Other things that you can try:-
I know that your school reports were sent home last week and that you are due to receive them soon. I am so proud of all of your achievements this year and can't wait to see you back at school in September. If you have any questions about your report, I am very happy to talk things through with you. If this is the case, please email me at email@example.com and I will call you back as soon as I am able to.
I hope that you enjoy the tasks this week and wish you all a happy and safe summer holiday.
See you in September,
Year 4, I hope you are keeping well and staying safe. Please find below the links for this weeks Maths and English lessons.
Enjoy your learning this week, in whatever you choose to do. If you have any issues please contact me: firstname.lastname@example.org.
Have a great week.
From, Mrs Leader
Exercise challenge winners
Well done to the following people for their amazing efforts with the exercise challenge:-
Maisie for doing nearly 90,000 steps last week!! An incredible effort.
Chloe for doing a great job with learning a new skill and for sharing her skipping pictures with us.
Jemima for setting herself a daily running and trampolining challenge, which she completed every morning before doing her school work and then added cycling to her routine during the week.
Timmy for designing an obstacle course for himself, doing a huge cycle ride and also horse riding.
I hope that you all had a good week last week. I would like Year 5's to continue with the usual routine for English and Maths - a mixture of reading, spelling, times tables, BBC Bitesize, or Oak Academy. If you choose BBC Bitesize, please go on to the daily lesson as we have been doing https://www.bbc.co.uk/bitesize/tags/zhgppg8/year-5-and-p6-lessons.
If you prefer The Oak Academy area, use the following link https://classroom.thenational.academy/subjects-by-year/year-5/subjects/english scroll down to 'balanced argument' and complete the 5 lessons in this section. For Maths use this link https://classroom.thenational.academy/subjects-by-year/year-5/subjects/maths and finish the section 'Calculating with whole numbers and decimals' that you started last week (lessons 6-10).
For Topic (Yr 4 & 5), we will be focusing more on the Eco side of the things. Here are the activities that you can work through:-
I hope that you enjoy working through these tasks.
Keep in touch and let me know how you get on.

For English and Maths this week, I would like you to continue with the daily lessons on BBC Bitesize (https://www.bbc.co.uk/bitesize/tags/zhgppg8/year-5-and-p6-lessons) as the resources guide you through topics that we would be learning at school this term, but I am also going to give you the option of The Oak Academy learning links, in case you would like to try something different, or want to do some extra activities. The links are set out below.

All children have access to the following websites which can be used on a daily basis:-
The teaching website Twinkl, has given parents free access to their website as part of their offer to support parents at home.
