Good morning Year 5 – how are we all today?
Here are your tasks for today:
Can you remember our spellings patterns for this week that we started looking at on Monday?
Here are two short tests to do after reading some further information. Let me know how well you spell the words.
I would like you to read the following story/poem by a famous poet called Michael Rosen. It’s quite long but I think that you will enjoy it. Try reading it a few times – this poem is always good to read aloud. Imagine that you are performing it to the class (you can always add in actions or changes to your voice as this brings the poem alive). I’m sure that an adult would love to hear you reading this out loud!
The following link is Michael himself performing it to a group of children – the words are a bit different but don’t worry too much.
I’d like you to create your version of the poem – you can follow the general idea of the poem or change it completely. Maybe you’d like it to be about another food item and not necessarily chocolate cake. If you have a particular favourite thing that you’d like to write about, that’s fine. I can’t wait to see what you come up with!
I have set us up a class login at the Oxford Owl website where you can access some books to either read on the screen or vis audio books. The website is:
Go to the ‘My Class Login’ at the top. Our class name is ‘lings primary’ (all lower case) and the password is ‘YearFive’ (no gaps).
You can then choose a book that you would like to read. Let me know what you are reading and if you are enjoying listening as well as reading.
We are going to start looking at symmetry as we haven’t looked at this yet in Year 5 and I’m not sure what you can remember from Year 4. Look at the following link as an introduction to symmetry:
Don’t worry that this is a Year 4 lesson as it’s a Year 4 objective. Blog me to let me know that you have watched it along with at least two sentences telling me what you have learnt.
Look at the following sheet – can you work out where the reflections should be?
Here are the answers for you to check:
The following lesson looks at how to say the date in Spanish.
I hope that you can say the date now!
