Good morning Sycamores!

Today is the first day of our two week Easter break. Please remember that I will be checking into Dojo daily. If you need me for any reason, I am still here for you! Try to keep practising your times tables and reading everyday.

Good morning Sycamores!

I hope that you all had a really good sleep and are ready to have another great day. What do you plan to do outside today? Are you going to play football, build a den or go for a walk? I am going to have another walk later this afternoon. Are any of you helping out with daily chores around the house? I love to hear about all your adventures, whilst we are all at home!

Thank you so much for sending me your beautiful work yesterday. I really enjoyed seeing your science experiments, castles and independent projects.

 

 

Here are your daily maths and English activities:

 

Year 5 Sycamores.

Please look at page 3 of your English booklet. Can you find and use the Spring suffixes?

 

Look at page 2 in your maths booklet. Can you break the code and then use inequality signs to compare the decimal numbers? Remember how we use inequality signs, 2 < 5 and 17 > 10. Compare digits in each place value column in order: ones, tenths, hundredths and lastly thousandths.

* How many wheels does it have and why?
* How many passengers can your vehicle carry?
* What fuel does it use?

Can you write a poem about your truly terrific truck? You could use some powerful figurative language to paint powerful images in your reader's mind; try to include rhyme, repetition, alliteration, similes and metaphors.

Here is a list of educational and active websites for you to share and explore with your parents.

Please remember to stay safe online! Never talk to a stranger online or visit a website that your parents haven't checked first! If you see or hear anything that upsets you online please tell a grown up straight away.

Good morning Sycamores! I hope that you had a great weekend. Did you get outside in your garden to enjoy the sunshine? Do you remember our English text “Where My Wellies Take Me”, where Pippa wrote about her walk? This weekend, I went for a walk in the sunshine and tried to spot different animals, plants and interesting features. Later this week, I think that I will use these photos to write a narrative inspired by Pippa’s story. Can you do this too and ‘collect’ some interesting things on a walk? You could go for a walk in your garden and record your observations by writing down a description, making sketches or taking photos.
