Year 5 - Miss Smith and Mr McKenna

Hello everybody, hope you are all well and have managed to undertake the tasks I have been setting you. Remember Brian Cox has some wonderful videos about space and these are available on BBC iplayer. Also available on the iplayer are Bitesize videos if you need any more information about space, living in France or any of the Maths and English topics we cover.if you take part in the Joe Wicks's videos in the mornings then keep doing that, otherwise why not try just dance. The videos can be played on youtube and you 'just dance'.

 

I look forward to seeing photographs of your work on our Twitter page.

 

Stay at home and Stay dafe.

 

Miss Smith

I have attached a Talk for Writing unit that should last for the half term. Do not attempt the whole unit in one week, make sure that for each task you collect all the information you need before completing it. 

 

Science

The topic for this half term is Earth and space. All the information you need has been included in the home learning packs that you already have, however I will be setting specific tasks for the week and adding extra resources for you to use.

Week 1

This weeks lesson is about the phases of the moon. Have you noticed how the moon doesn't look the same shape each night? The following powerpoints will explain this, When you have studied them, use the cycle template in your pack to write/draw an explanation of each phase.

Task 2 - Use the internet to find the time the moon rises and sets each night and keep a note of it.

 

Topic

Our topic for this half term is Vive La France a geography based topic which also has an art aspect too.

Geography

The first lesson is to find out exactly where in the world France is.

Use the internet and the resources provided to discover

The hemisphere it is in

The continent it is on

The countries that surround it

The main rivers that flow through it

The seas that are on its coastline

 

Art

Linked to our study of France I would like you to create a poster about a French artist (there are many to choose from), when they are completes ask your parents if you can tweet your work to our twitter page.

In the coming weeks there will be lots of different art work that we will do.
