Year 5

Welcome to Year 5!

 

 

 

As schools remain closed, we will continue to update this page with home learning tasks.  We will aim to try and send one email per child, per day.  So as to keep our inboxes manageable, could we please ask you to try and only send us one email per day - we are happy to wait until all work has been completed and then receive one email with all work attached.

 

Remember, if you need to take a break from work or are looking for something a little different, make sure you check our 'Take a Break' page run by Mrs Lee, Mrs Charity and Mr Edwards. 

 

Thank you all for your continued hard work and support. 

Please send completed work to these email addresses

 

Mr Martindale: smartindale@bishop-ridley.bexley.sch.uk

 

Mrs Gorin: agorin@bishop-ridley.bexley.sch.uk

 

On Thursdays, Armstrong class need to send their work to Mrs Mason:

This is the next David Attenborough creating his bug hotel complete with a slice of potato for his three woodlice.
He added soil, a leaf and some bark. He sprayed it with some water and then covered it with a sheet of plastic, after piercing it with lots of holes. Shortly after this he added the woodlice to the hotel. Well done;-)

Giant African Snails - Thank you Ignas for sending these photos!

Whilst Bishop Ridley is closed, this page will be used as a way of communicating with the Year 5 pupils. We aim to update it daily (Monday to Friday) and the children will need to get into the habit of checking it to see which tasks they need to be completing.

 

The page will be set out as follows:

 

1. Daily Tasks

This section will encompass daily maths and English activities.

 

At the start of each maths session, children should spend 10 - 15 minutes on Times Tables Rockstars.  Then pupils should spend some time on the Guided Learning as this will give them information about the task and how to complete it. Guided learning might be a PowerPoint or a link to a video.  Once they are confident, they should attempt the question/activity sheet. There will usually be 2 sheets per 'lesson'.  

 

Sheet 1 is aimed at those children who lack confidence following the Guided Learning.

Sheet 2 is designed to be slightly more challenging.

Please be aware that for some activities, there may be an extra challenge task, designed to extend some of the more-able mathematicians.

 

For English, pupils will be given a range of reading, writing and grammar tasks to complete each day. Where possible, modelled examples will be given to show the children what is expected of them.

 

How long will this work take?

We anticipate that maths and English work should take the children about 30 minutes each per day (1 hour altogether).

 

How should my child complete this work?

For pupils who have access to Microsoft Word (or similar), pupils may be able to edit the sheets and write their answers underneath the questions. If using an iPad, Word documents can be opened in Pages and children will be able to write the answers onto the sheet.  If possible, this should be saved as a Word or PDF document and e-mailed back to us (see below).

 

How will we return the work?

If your child has completed the work electronically, this can simply be saved on your own computer/ laptop and e-mailed back to us at the addresses below. If your child has completed their work by hand on paper, please take a photograph of it. This can also be e-mailed to us. We will endeavour to look through all pieces of work sent to us and will reply with a comment where appropriate.

 

When should we e-mail?

You can e-mail us at any time that is convenient to you.  We will be replying to e-mails between 9am and 12pm every day.  We aim to send each parent/child one email each day (Monday to Friday) where we will return work and any comments on success and next learning steps.  We will be preparing work and uploading this to the website every afternoon.  If the website is slow or goes down for any reason, we will then send you work and links via email.  

 

You can contact us at the email addresses below:

 

Armstrong Class: smartindale@bishop-ridley.bexley.sch.uk

 

Curie Class: agorin@bishop-ridley.bexley.sch.uk

 

Please send your child’s work to his/her class teacher with their name and date as the subject of the e-mail.

 

What if my child becomes unwell?

Please be advised that if your child is unwell, they do not need to complete the work, though we would be grateful if you could make us aware if this is the case.

 

2. Topic Tasks

Alongside the daily tasks, we will also set a task related to our topic. This will cover many areas of the curriculum and the pupils will have longer to complete this project. Any work completed should be e-mailed (either via word document, PowerPoint or photographs) to your child’s class teacher by the allotted date.

 

3. Resources

Here we will provide advice for parents who are home-schooling, as well as any useful website links and school resources that we think will benefit the children.

English work

Friday, 27th March 2020

 

Good morning everyone!

 

I hope you are all well. Again thank you all for your homework completed so far, I cannot believe how hard you have been working.

As it is Friday you deserve some fun. I have prepared three different spelling sheets, please choose one of these then click on our SPELLING MENU icon and have a close look at 35 different activities.

Choose between 10 to 20 of these and complete them on a piece of paper. When your work is done ask your adult to take a photo of it and send it to me. Remember that apart from having fun, you are getting ready for your favourite Speed Spell;-)

 

Have a lovely day and enjoy your weekend!

English work

Thursday 26th March 2020

 

Good morning everyone!

 

This morning we will be doing some SPAG work on using adverbs.  Please have a look at the two PowerPoints to help you and then choose the activity challenge level you would normally do in class.  If unsure, pick one that you find best suits you!  Enjoy!

 

Armstrong class - please email Mrs Mason today with your Maths and English work.  I look forward to hearing from you! 

tmason@bishop-ridley.bexley.sch.uk

Wednesday 25th March 2020

 

Good morning everyone!

 

Again, well done for completing your English work! Mr Martindale and I were very impressed with your brilliant answers! Remember, it is very important to do some English and Maths work every day, so a very big thank you to those of you who complete their work each day!

 

Today, I have prepared a very interesting reading text about LEGO!!! Who doesn’t like building, creating, having fun with Lego? Let’s find out something more about it then.

 

Remember to find the answers in your reading text. Guessing might be fun but it doesn’t always give you the successful answer.

 

Parents please note that I am preparing home study tasks from my own home and have limited IT facilities. Today's work is taken from a PDF file and I have prepared a Word document for the answers. Thank you for your understanding.

 

Have fun and again, please choose one option out of three. If you think the first set of questions is too short or you need an extension task, move on to the next sheet and the other way round. If something is too long/complicated, have a go at a previous worksheet. I hope it all makes sense.

 

Good luck and have fun;-)

English Work

Tuesday, 24th March 2020

 

Good morning everyone!

 

First of all, thank you to those of you who completed their home study on time. Excellent effort!

 

Now it is time for day 2. Today, you will do some reading related with Easter. There are three different options of difficultly. Please feel free to choose any sheet you are comfortable with. Remember though, it is very good to challenge ourselves;-)

 

Parents please note that I am preparing home study tasks from my own home and have limited IT facilities. Today's work is taken from a PDF file and I have prepared a Word document for the answers. Thank you for your understanding.

 

If you have any questions please ask, I will be here everyday, happy to help just email me.

 

Stay safe!

Image result for minibeasts

This half term, we’ll handle a range of minibeasts and small creatures. Taking photographs, making notes and listening carefully to expert explanations will help us to understand how minibeasts move, what they eat and where they live. Using what we’ve learned, we’ll write an interesting minibeast report. In science, we’ll learn how to categorise minibeasts and investigate woodlice habitats. We’ll make detailed drawings of our minibeasts, present data about them and make maps to show the route of our minibeast hunt. Using wood, stones, garden canes and other natural materials, we’ll create ‘minibeast hotels’ and write adverts to attract minibeasts to stay in them. We’ll create a comic about deadly creatures and use interesting vocabulary to write minibeast poems. Minibeasts’ homes and their life cycles will amaze us and we’ll watch the fascinating process of stick insects hatching. At the end of the project, we’ll write fantasy stories about a minibeast’s adventures, make a fantastic fact file and create a 3-D minibeast using a range of materials.

               Take a look at our drawings. They look pretty scary!
____________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________

In topic/English we wrote a historical story and we tried to make it as realistic as we could.

We have also drawn the feudal system, the most important at the top and least important at the bottom!

We wrote and drew a non-chronological report based on the black Death or Pestilence; they were illustrated and written on to make them look amazing.

We read a text called Flagellation and recorded relevant information to make a poster all about Flagellation.

In RE we designed posters about the true meaning of Christmas and we had to include a slogan with lots of decorations.

 In art we drew knights in their full armour we had to use line, tone and shading to make it have a 3D effect.

Also in art we created illuminated letters firstly we copied a b then we used our own design and letter.

 

By SH and SD

Armstrong class

Peasants princes and pestilence

 

In English/topic we have wrote our own spells/cures for the plague (black death) we have tried to make them rhyme we would like to share some with you:

 

Bubble, bubble soil into trouble,

Fire burn and cauldron double.

Fillet of a venom snake,

Watch the mixture boil and bake.

Eye of frog and toe of cat,

Nail of dog and wing of bat.

Snails shell and slugs slime,

 Lions tongue and fishes’ eyes.

To work a charm of fixing trouble,

Just repeat boil and bubble.

Bubble, bubble soil into trouble.

Fire burn and cauldron double!

 

 

Double double snakes tail,

Fire burn and cauldron bubble

Fillet of a hairy fenny snake

In the cauldron stir and bake

Eye of spider and toe of frog

Teeth of hen and tongue of dog

Frogs legs and blind worms sting

Rats leg and bats wing

For a charm of powerful trouble

Drink this down and have no trouble

Double double toil and trouble

Fire burn and cauldron bubble

 

We have wrote our spells on screwed up paper and have used tea bags to have an old affect.

 

 

In science, we have looked at the life cycle of a flea and rat, we have drawn, illustrated and wrote the life cycle.

 

Flea: baby, larva, pupa adult

 

Rat: baby, adult, love, cubs

Peasants, Princes and Pestilence is our new topic this half term, we are learning about the Plague and Black Death. Also how it’s caused and the process of the illness. Doctors were different in those days and didn’t have as much experience but just didn’t want to admit they didn’t know.

In Music we learnt the ukulele and how to play singing in the rain and hallelujah. Can you guess where the ukulele comes from? (Hint: it is a small island in a big country its closest ocean is the Pacific Ocean)

 

We have learnt Will Smith Prince of Bel Air and Living On a Prayer by Bon Jovi.

In R.E we have designed our own stained glass windows using pens and pencils to put in loads of detail

 

In topic we have written our own newspaper articles we would like to share one with you:

                                               

1ST men on moon!

The first men on Moon were Neil Armstrong Edwin Buzz Aldrin 6 days ago 24th July 1969 Buzz Aldrin Neil Armstrong and Michael Collins landed in the Pacific ocean with a spash

from seb

 

In science we have been learning about forces pulling and pushing

We have designed and are going to make moonbases so astronauts can have somewhere to stay when they go to the moon

From Sophie and Seb

 

We have also visited Greenwich conservatory museum where we visited the planetarium.

It was a really good day.

In science we created diagrams using black card and templates. The diagrams were of the sun, moon and Earth we showed how the Earth orbits the sun, we used stars as well for decorations.

Also in science we were looking at forces.

In English we have drafted our own myths or legends based on created legends or myths about the moon.

We have also read the myth Icarus and Daedlus and sorted myths and legends to guess what they were.

From Sebastian and Sophie 5m armstrong

Our topic this half term is STARGAZERS

We have created our own planets and have wrote descriptions on them

Here is one we would like to share…

ORLANTIA

Orlantia is an inhabitable planet. It is too cold! there are volcanoes that explode cold lava. It has many moons at least 68. It takes 380 days to orbit the sun. Orlantia has rings made of ice!

The longest you could be on Orlantia is 4 hours otherwise you would freeze! This planet is the coldest planet ever. It’s very rocky and delicate so don’t be to heavy or it will collapse.

Did you know Orlantia is 2 ½ billion miles away from the sun? its very interesting. Only fun when volcanoes aren’t exploding.

 

In art we have painted the solar system using watercolours we have also used sugar to create different textures of the different planets.

We could choose which coloured background of our solarsytem was.

Usually blue purple or black

In English we have watched myths and legends and now we have started to write our own.

In science we have made our own line graphs ant it shows how much light and dark in 24h.

By Seb and Sophie 5M Armstrong class

Superman: Escape from Krypton coaster at Six Flags Magic Mountain.
Roll up, roll up! We’re going on a day trip to a theme park! This half term, we’ll write poems to capture the excitement of riding a roller coaster and investigate the wonders of centripetal force. After carrying out fair tests to investigate the materials used to make roller coasters, we’ll create prototype rides of our own. Let’s hope we choose the right materials! In our computing work, we’ll upload photographs of rides and examine online theme park maps. Then, we’ll use advanced techniques and commands to search for information on the internet. In English, we’ll write stories, signs and emails about theme parks and investigate forces by making a ride. We’ll design a roller coaster using software such as Scratch and look at online advertising.

Flee your fields, close your doors and pull up the drawbridge: the dreaded and deathly ‘Great Pestilence’ is here!  This term we are going to gallop through the dark and deadly world of 14th century Britain, sword and shield at the ready.  We are going to read and write historical accounts, poems and tales, study maps and produce amazing artwork inspired by this period of history. 
_________________________________________________________________________________________________________
