To my lovely Otters, 

Thank you all for your cooperation today! I'm looking forward to seeing you all on zoom tomorrow. I have attached the timetable for this below. The zooms will be slightly different to the last lockdown, as a lot of the work will be revision (for maths) and some fun activities, as this is what we'd be doing if we were in school. I will put together a document explaining how to activate Google Classroom. The work will be set from tomorrow. The English for the next few days will be finishing off your final writes and the maths will be different recap activities/tasks. Thank you for your patience! 

Miss Brooks has kindly put together an instruction video for using google classroom (skip straight to 1.14). Even though it's for her Year 3s, if you follow the same instructions, you will reach the Year 5 page and it will look very similar. The work will be up tomorrow so if you can't see anything yet, don't worry!

Year 6 Residential Meeting

Thank you to everyone who attended the meeting - we really appreciate you giving up your time. If you were unable to make the meeting, please do not worry. The slides are linked below, however due to the size of the presentation, we had to remove some of the photos to be able to upload it. If you would like a link to watch a recording of the meeting, please email the office and we will try (technology willing!) to send it out to you. 

 

If you have any questions about the trip, please get in touch with us. 

 

Miss K and Mr Short

RE: 
As we are learning about Jewish celebrations at the moment, we thought it would be fun for you to have a go at making your own Challah bread. Iris, the lady who spoke to us about the Jewish faith on our Bristol trip, has kindly sent us her own recipe. 

 

We would love for you to share a photo of your creations. Have fun! :) 

 

----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Thank you very much for all of your efforts over the last couple of weeks. We've really enjoyed looking through your homework! We wanted to celebrate this by sharing some of your creations.

English/ Pre-Bristol trip task: 

Before our trip to Bristol next Friday, we thought it was important that you had some prior knowledge of why the SS Great Britain is so special. The documentary that we would like you to watch tells the amazing journey of the boat, using real life footage and articles from 1845 and onwards!

Please go to https://www.bbc.co.uk/archive/chronicle--the-great-iron-ship/znt2cqt 

The documentary is 50 minutes long, which we know is lengthy! If you are keen to become really familiar with the ship's journey (we hope you are), we suggest you watch 10 minutes a day. 

If you are unable to commit this much time alongside the other homework, we would like you to watch the  beginning, where she is setting off from Bristol, how she ended up in the Falkland Islands (around 12 mins) and her rescue mission, near the end. 

 

Although this video is long, it will give you a real sense of just how extraordinary its journey has been, which makes it all the more special that we are visiting!

 

 

 

RE Judaism video 

We were really pleased to see how interested you all were with our new RE focus of Judaism. We have attached a short clip that you may like to watch, about the life of a Jewish boy called Charlie and his family. It briefly covers a few Jewish traditions and celebrations. This will also be really useful, in preparation for our trip, where we will meet a member of the local synagogue.

Double consonant spelling practice

From some of your recent work, we have noticed some of you need a bit of practice on your double consonant words. Please only complete this, if your teacher has told you to smiley

Handwriting 

As you know, Miss Mugleston was blown away, when she had a sneaky look in the Year 3 English books recently. Their handwriting was absolutely amazing! There has been a definite improvement over the last couple of weeks, but our letter formation and joining still needs lots of work! ✍️

 

We have generated a handwriting practice sheet for you, using the 'shus' words you are exploring. Please take your time on this. 

 

If you need to watch tutorials on the movement needed to create a letter, open the PDF below for instructions on how to login. It's super easy! 

 

Click here for the sheet, if you were away on Friday and don't have a paper copy. 

------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Illustration for your information page: 

We would like you to draw an illustration/ illustrations for your information page. 

We suggest you draw your animal and something else of your choice. For example, its habitat, something in its diet, a map showing its location in the world. Whatever you like that links closely to your animal! 

This could be done as a detailed sketch, a biro drawing, a coloured drawing, a painting- we don't mind. 

This will be stuck onto your final draft, so presentation is very important. 

Consider the size of your illustrations and how much space you will have left on your information page. 

 

We look forward to seeing them! Have fun 😀 ✍️🎨🖌️🖍️

Handwriting/ vocabulary:

Miss Mugleston was blown away, when she had a sneaky look in the Year 3 English books recently. Their handwriting was absolutely amazing! Year five definitely need to up their handwriting game! ✍️

 

We have generated a handwriting practice sheet for you, using the vocabulary that we are focussing on for our information pages. Please take your time on this. 

 

If you need to watch tutorials on the movement needed to create a letter, open the PDF below for instructions on how to login. It's super easy! 

 

 

You should have been given a printed version on Friday, but a copy of the handwriting sheet is attached below- just in case!
