Year 5

Hi there Year 5! Hope you are all keeping safe, happy and well. It was brilliant to see and speak to those of you who were able join in with last week's Zoom meetings and take part in our quizzes and games. Hopefully, we'll have more fun in our next Zoom meetings. In the meantime, here for you is this week's suggested timetable along with the links to help you with your work.

 

The literacy for the week focuses on the question: 'Could You Be An Astronaut?' Take the fun survey and see if you have what it takes. There is also an interesting look at the planet Mars. As usual, there are lots of ideas to help you be as creative and imaginative as possible with your writing. Work in RE continues to look at caring for the Earth, whilst science this week is about plant reproduction.

 

Also, there is this week's STEM sheet to give you some ideas to further develop your science, technology, engineering and maths skills. There is a fun art activity based on the artist Patrick Caulfield for you to tryLastly, don't forget to have a go at the Time Project 'Make Your Own Puppet Show' - the link is below.

 

As ever, try your best with the tasks suggested and keep in touch with how you are doing and any enjoyable activities you do.

 

Best wishes and bye for now,

Mr.Merrick
