Week Beginning 23/03/20

Friday 27th March 2020

Morning!

 

I cant believe its Friday already! Hasnt it gone quickly? Therell be no updates from me over the weekend but Ill be back on Monday. You can definitely email me though as getting your emails are brightening my days!

 

Iv given you more topic/ crafty/ creative tasks today and dont forget to have some social play this afternoon- maybe teach your family werewolf or the adventure game we played during World Book Week.

 

Have a lovely weekend,

 

Mrs Meyers

Easter: find out all about Easter traditions while spotting spelling, punctuation and grammar mistakes. Task 1 is easier than task 2 so pick your challenge!

Stone Age: use the internet to date and order these key events from the stone age in the timeline task and then explore animals of stone age Britain. How were they different to the animals we have now? How were they the same?

Indoor Learning: The Scouts have put together a list of indoor activities here: https://www.scouts.org.uk/the-great-indoors/ so I would like you to pick one (at least) to do over this weekend.

Outdoor Learning: The next link is a Facebook link, so be sure to check with an adult: https://www.facebook.com/YouDoForestSchool/ This company have been sharing outdoor learning activities every day this week that can be done at home. If you don't have a garden, try collecting the materials you need when you go for a walk or some exercise.

I'd like you to choose one of the activities here and have a go at it. Some are aimed at younger children but I'm sure you could have a go with a younger sibling too!

Kindness: Sometimes we forget to be kind to the most important person of all: ourselves. I know that you used GoNoodle with Miss Hickman last year, so you should be familiar with some of the videos on this page (no sign up needed):https://www.gonoodle.com/good-energy-at-home-kids-games-and-videos/ .

Listen to your body and mind and think about what you need. Do you need to calm worries? Do you need to focus wandering thoughts? Do you need to burn off some energy? Do you need to have a giggle? Choose a video that can help and join in! 

Personally, I love 'Peanut Butter in a Cup'!

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Thursday 26th March 2020

Good morning all!

 

I have saw that people have been spot my mistakes (well done to you who email me) so I will keep them in for now! It is difficult for me to kept making them though- why don't you have a tried?

 

I have been updating the links on the front Home Learning page with more websites that have fun and useful activities on them and will keep doing so. So please checked them out! Let me know if you really like one and I will add a review to the page!

 

Mrs Meyers

SPAG: Have a go at these fluency and reasoning questions on relative clauses. The first page is red work, the middle page is green and the final page is purple. It does say Year 6, however it is suitable for Year 5 too so don't worry!

Spelling: Practise five of our Year 5 and 6 statutory spellings on these word mats (or in your books).

English: Create a poem based on this picture. Use as much personification, simile, metaphor, alliteration and description as you can!

Times Tables: Don't forget to practise those tables! Here are some activities that you can do or try the website that I shared on Friday.

Kindness: As it is Thursday, I thought we should have a star of the week! So, choose someone that has been a star for you. It might be a parent, sibling, friend or someone you know who is working hard at the moment (doctors/nurses/shop workers etc.). Make them a certificate and share with them why they are your star of the week. If you can't see them face to face, take a photograph and send them an email/ picture message. If you need me to pass any on (classmates/people at school) send them to me at 414.hobby@educ.somerset.gov.uk and I will email them out!

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Wednesday 25th March 2020

Good morning,

 

I feel that I am starting to get into a routine after a cuple of days of workign from home. Have you felt like that? 

I am realy enjoying seeing your pictures and emails- thank u for sending the to me. Its so nice to see what you are doing at home.

 

Mrs Meyers

 

P.S. No one has told me that they've spotted any mistakes in my writing... maybe I am too good at hiding them!

Skimming and Scanning: I know you LOVE a skimming and scanning task so here you go! If you can't print the sheets, you can try to find all of the words on the screen instead and then answer the questions in your home learning book.

Maths: Have a go at these real life problems using multiplication and division (Year 5) and place value (Year 6). You can do both if you wish! Some groups have done these activities at school, but you may have forgotten them! You don't need to print these out, but can read the text online and answer in your home learning books.

School Trip: I felt like we needed a trip out today, and I know how much you enjoyed visiting the Caves of Lascaux at school. So, visit the caves: https://archeologie.culture.fr/lascaux/en/node/9028/diverticule-axial and then create a leaflet or poster to advertise it. Make sure you include lots of stone age facts and artwork to grab your readers' attention!
Kindness: Today's act of kindness is inspired by Ella! Write a letter to someone that you know who is stuck indoors on their own due to isolation and may be feeling lonely. What can you tell them about what you've been doing? If possible, send these in the post/ via email or picture message.

Good morning hobby class!

 

Don't panic if you missed yesterday's message/ work: It has been left down below for you!

I hope you have been getting on well with your learning at home. don't forget that you can email me if you want to ask me anything. Feel free to send me some pictures so that I can put them up here so everyone can see.

 

Mrs Meyers

 

P.S. what mistakes have I made today?

SPAG: Have a go at these fluency and reasoning questions on different word classes. The first page is red work, the middle page is green and the final page is purple. It does say Year 6, however it is suitable for Year 5 too so don't worry!

Spelling: Practise five of our Year 5 and 6 statutory spellings on these word mats (or in your books).

English: The child in the picture has just come back from a crazy adventure! Write a diary entry as if you were there, focusing on expanded noun phrases and powerful verbs.

Times Tables: Don't forget to practise those tables! Here are some activities that you can do or try the website that I shared on Friday. If you already know your 2s, try your 12s today!

Kindness: Today's act of kindness is to create a rainbow or picture to put up in one of your windows. When anyone passes your house, they will be able to see your picture and it will bring a smile to their face! Think carefully about drawing something that can be seen from the road.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Monday 23rd March 2020

Good morning Hobby Class!

 

I hope you have all had a great weekend and are still keeping up your social distancing and handwashing habits!

 

I have put some downloadable activitys/ activity suggestions on this page but you can always do them on a different day. And dont forget the weblinks that we looked at on friday for some other fun things to do!

 

Mrs Meyers

 

P.S. I have made at least 2 mistakes in my writing this morning. Can you spot where?

Reading Comprehensions: Level 2 is more challenging than Level 1. These don't need printing out- you can do the reading online and then answer the questions in your home learning books!

English: This is the opening to a story. What does the child see when they get to the top of the ladder? How did the ladder get there? Finish the story and try to use as many fronted adverbials as you can (ASPICE).

Maths: Have a go at these real life problems using addition and subtraction (Year 5) and the four operations (Year 6). You can do both if you wish! Some groups have done these activities at school, but you may have forgotten them! You don't need to print these out, but can read the text online and answer in your home learning books.

Kindness: I know how kind and helpful Hobby Class is at school and hope this can continue at home!

 Ask your adult (whoever is looking after you during the day) what you can do to help them this week. They are probably very busy and may be working from home while looking after you and your siblings. Try to pick a job that you can do some of every day this week.

Suggestions are: sorting the washing, doing the washing up, organising breakfast/lunch, helping a younger sibling get up, washed and dressed in the morning, doing reading with a younger sibling, taking care of the pets... the list goes on!

Send a picture of you doing your helpful task to the email address (414.hobby@educ.somerset.gov.uk) to be put on the website!
