Hello Year 5!

After the announcement last night, we will start home learning from tomorrow.

I am so disappointed that we can’t be having fun and learning together in our classroom, but I am looking forward to seeing all your fantastic work.

 

Home learning will be set using a variety of platforms and will be posted on our class page every morning before 8.45am. Each day there will be English, Maths and some topic work set. Most lessons will be accompanied by a video or powerpoint.

I will be mainly using Oak Academy for English and Maths, White Rose Maths, Purple Mash for topic work and Linguascope for French. Please try to complete these lessons every day as each day the lessons will follow on from the previous lesson. Please try to read everyday and continue to work on your times tables.

It is important to try and stay active, especially this time of year, so our PE lessons will be to participate with Joe Wicks every Monday, Wednesday and Friday. Mrs Adewale will be providing a music lesson for the class every Tuesday.

 

I will email parents and carers individually with log in details for Purple Mash and Linguascope. Parents and children can email using the Year 5 email address y5homework@cottam.lancs.sch.uk and I will try to reply as soon as I can.

Please don't worry about printing worksheets and activities - answers can be written on any paper or notebooks that you have at home. 

I understand that this way of teaching and learning is very different and not easy for all of us.

Thank you for your continued support.  

 

Please take care, stay safe and try to stay positive.

Miss Grieve heart

To finish our topic on Ancient Greek we had a Greek themed day in class. 

When we arrived to class we each had a toga that we had to help each other put on. We then had to create our own olive leaf crown. We used the Greek alphabet to write our names.

During our topic we had read a historical novel called The Discus Thrower. It included the goddess Athena and referred to her symbol the owl. We created our own owl models using clay. 

In the afternoon, we had our own mini Olympics, tasted some Greek food and created our own shields. 

Christmas Lunch

Design & Technology - Scones

As part of our food topic in Design and Technology we have planned and created our own scones. 

Firstly, we tasted a plain scone. We tried to guess the ingredients and the process of how it would be made. A lot of us thought that it would be like making a cake or bread. 

 

We discussed what we thought could be added to the scone mixture in order to improve it. There were many suggestions, both sweet and savoury. Some of the suggestions were chocolate chips, a range of different chocolate bars, raisins, cranberries, lemon curd, cheese and even olives!

 

We followed the recipe, adding our own additions and we all agreed that the end result was delicious!

Black History Week

This children have been learning about Martin Luther King Jr and the impact he made on the Black Civil Rights Movement. 

The children looked at key events in his life, they created a fact file and after being inspired by watching his famous "I have a dream" speech they wrote their own dreams for the future. 

In Science we are looking at properties of materials. We tested the absorbency of nappies. 

Find some instructions on how we carried out our investigation below. 

Science

Ancient Greek Pottery

In Art, we have been researching Ancient Greek pottery. We have studied a range of artefacts and discussed their importance - they showed us what life was like in Ancient Greece.

We used Modrock to create our own plates. We then painted a detailed design on them using inspiration from the artefacts we studied. 

Please find attached our homework grid for this half term. We are back to using the grids we previously used. Homework can be completed in homework books, on the computer or physically made if it is a crafty activity. 

Homework done on the computer can be emailed to y5homework@cottam.lancs.sch.uk

During the Autumn term, Year 5 will be learning about Ancient Greece. Take a look at what we will be learning....
