Monday

Hello my wonderful Griffins!

Hope you were able to make the most of the glorious weather last week.

The Langleys had a water balloon fight the other day! Great fun until I got a blow to the leg from Mr. Langley, who seemed to think the water balloon was a cricket ball and I was the stumps!!!

Work hard this week but remember to have lots of fun too!

Miss you lot so much!

Mr. and Mrs. L x x x

 

Reflection

As you listen to the song today please think about how you can make the most of the time you have together at home. What have you been enjoying the most about these past seven weeks?

 

Maths

Remember you do not have to copy out all of the questions, especially if they use complicated diagrams.

Your answers and any workings out are enough.

 

Complete Summer Term – Week 1 (w/c 20 April), Lesson 4 - Adding decimals - crossing the whole

 

https://whiterosemaths.com/homelearning/year-5/

It has a video, worksheet and then a sheet with the answers on.

The sheet can also be found in the resources at the bottom of this page.

 

English

Remember to read for 20-30 mins a day. Write down any words you can not read or any that you do not understand from your book.

 

Session 13:  Text marking

  • Reread the section in Night Visitors from Growing ever more curious to Why would the Stormbreaker project need a man like that? (pdf pg63 to middle of pg64, 5mins 40 secs to 7mins 51secs of audio book part 2)
  • Locate the short sentences of the text. Consider what the effect of the short sentences is and how it affects the pace of the text.
  • Practise reading the text aloud, paying attention to the pacing.
  • Create your own passage of text, about an encounter with a wild animal, using shorter and longer sentences to affect the pace of the piece, using short sentences to ramp up the speed of the reading at a key point in your passage.
