Our Lady and St Joseph's Brooms RCVA Primary School, Leadgate

We Learn, We Love, We Grow in Jesus' Name

Class 4

Home Learning - week beginning 4.5.20

 

I hope you are all okay! The work that has been provided is to be used in a way that suits your family. We appreciate every family is different and that some children will be able to do most of the work, whereas some will manage a small amount. (We have included about two weeks worth) This is not meant to add any stress or anxiety to the children or parents. It is work that the children would normally follow at school so hopefully the format will be familiar.

There is no expectation of timetable, amount of time spent on school work, or amount of work completed. This is to be managed by families in a way that works for you and fits in with everything else that has to be done.

This is a challenging time for all of us, we need to be kind to ourselves and each other.

 

Any questions, please ask. There are still activities that can be completed on Mymaths, Lexia, TTRS, PurpleMash, Read Theory. 

 

Stay safe everyone.

Miss Croxford

Home Learning - Week beginning 20.4.20

 

Hi Everyone, 

 

I hope you are all okay and have enjoyed your Easter break. The work that has been provided is to be used in a way that suits your family. We appreciate every family is different and that some children will be able to do most of the work, whereas some will manage a small amount. (We have included about two weeks worth) This is not meant to add any stress or anxiety to the children or parents. It is work that the children would normally follow at school so hopefully the format will be familiar.

There is no expectation of timetable, amount of time spent on school work, or amount of work completed. This is to be managed by families in a way that works for you and fits in with everything else that has to be done.

This is a challenging time for all of us, we need to be kind to ourselves and each other.

 

Any questions, please ask. There are still activities that can be completed on Mymaths, Lexia, TTRS, PurpleMash, Read Theory. 

 

Stay safe everyone.

Miss Croxford 

 

English 

Each of the English tasks have a cover note on how the children can approach the particular task. There are a number of different activities per task and therefore each task will likely take more than one day to complete. There are powerpoints to match the english activities which include sound files - please use these!

 

Maths

There are five mixed calculation questions that can be completed each day. These could be completed before going through the powerpoint. Children can self mark their answers for the mixed calculation questions. Most questions will require your child to complete some form of workings. 

 

For the next two weeks Year 5 will be covering the following topic 'position and direction' and Year 6's topic will be 'ratio'. For each step you can go through the powerpoint. The powerpoint will match the name of the step on the sheets in the workbook. There are then varied fluency questions to work through first. After each set of varied fluency questions, the children can self mark their own work. Once the children are confident with the varied fluency aspect of each step they can then move onto the reasoning and problem solving questions. 

 

***If there are any steps that your child requires more varied fluency practice, please send a comment to the class blog page and I can upload more varied fluency style questions for you.***

 

Thank you

****************************************************************************************************************

Our Class Teacher is Miss Croxford and Our Teaching Assistants are Mrs Nichol, Mrs Williamson and Mrs Raine. 

 

Our class is a mixed Year 5 and 6 class. There are 34 children in our class. Every Friday afternoon Miss Croxford has PPA time and Mrs Nichol and Mrs Raine will class on this afternoon. 

 

Religious Education

This term we will be focusing on the following topics: memorial Sacrifice - Eucharist as the living memorial of Christ’s sacrifice

and during Lent/ Easter our topic is sacrifice - Lent: a time of aligning with the sacrifice made by Jesus. 

 

English

Our class reader this term is Wonder. In the Autumn Term we were lucky enough to see the film at the cinema in Hexham. Children are explicitly taught the skills of reading outlined in the KS2 test domains through the use of 'VIPERS' which was created by Rob Smith (The Literacy Shed). 

Our English lessons for the next few weeks are based on the film 'Little Freak' which is also from the Literacy Shed. 

 

Maths

We will be covering measurement: converting units, measurement: perimeter, area and volume and statistics. We will be following the White Rose Maths Scheme of learning (small steps). 

 

Science

Our topic in science this term is Electricity. 

 

Geography 

In geography this term we will be learning all about America (North and South America). 

 

PE

This term, PE will take place on a Monday and Thursday afternoon. Year 5 will be swimming on a Monday afternoon. All children must remember to bring in their swimming kits every Monday. 

 

Spellings

The children will be given a different spelling rule to learn each week. Children are expected to learn their set of spellings during the week ready for a spelling test every Friday. 

 

Times tables

It is important that children continue to practice their times tables. Children have times table practice in school through Times Table Rock Stars. It is important that children access this at home. 

 

Reading Books

Children have reading books and diaries that are sent home with them everyday. Children are encouraged to read for at least 20 minutes per evening and to record their reading in their diaries. Children can also access Read Theory and record the quizzes they've take in their diaries too. Parents/Carers are asked to sign their child's diary once a week. 

 

Homework 

Children have a homework grid which is in their homework book. Children are asked to choose at least one activity each week to complete and bring into school. Please help to support your child when completing their homework which is due into school every Wednesday
