Emergency Home Learning
In Year 5, we are following The Oak National Academy, which is endorsed by the government. We will provide links to English and Maths lessons to complete each day. They are sequenced, so it is important that you complete all of the sessions in order to gain a good understanding.

To find out more information, the link to The National Oak Academy is:
https://www.thenational.academy/

If your child is struggling to complete The National Oak Academy independently, we would advise that you follow the BBC Bitesize Schedule of lessons which are somewhat easier and simpler for children to follow independently. 

The link for the BBC schedule is: bbc.co.uk/bitesize/tags/zhgppg8/year-5-lessons/1
You will need to click on the session to complete each day.

Please note that you do not have to print anything out, just view on the screen and complete tasks on paper.

 

Thank you for your support.

Rockmount Sports Day at Home! W/C 13th July

This week we would like for you to take part in our Rockmount Sports Day from home! This Sports Day can be completed independently or with siblings and is focused on encouraging you to achieve your personal best. This means you should try each activity at least 3 times to see if you can beat your previous scores and achieve your personal best. 

Coach Charlotte has put together some demonstration videos of each activity to show you exactly how they should be done. We understand that you may not have certain pieces of equipment at home. Therefore, we invite you to use your imagination to replicate the activities! For example, you could use a box to replicate a target area or sock to replicate a bean bag. You could even use a toilet roll to replicate a football!


Attached below is a score card for you to download and use to record your scores and personal best. Please sent them into the year group email address along with any photos of your Sports Day. We'd love to see how you get on!

Good luck!

SCIENCE

During this term, our Science topic is Animals Including Humans; Living Things and Habitats. Therefore we are asking you to complete project on all things living.

 

You will find all the information you need. How you choose to set out your project is up to you - you might decide to create a Powerpoint you can share with me via email, or you might decide to complete a project by hand, using arts and crafts and writing. This is YOUR project, so it is entirely up to you how you present the information.

 

Each week we will set a topic for you to research and present in your project. Then by the end of this unit you should have a full project workbook/powerpoint/word document on Animals Including Humans; Living Things and Habitats.

CHILDREN'S ART WEEK

 

Children's Art Week is a UK-wide programme that gives children and young people the opportunity to get involved in a wide range of art activities online, at home and in schools across three weeks in June and July. Each week will focus on a special theme.

Our 2020 themes are…

 

Week 1 (from 29 June): The Natural World
Week 2 (from 6 July): Connecting across generations
Week 3 (from 13 July): Literacy and creative writing

 

Follow the links below and have a go at either:

 

1) Relaxation through art with artist Brenda Coyle - creating beautiful meditative flowers. https://engage.org/happenings/relaxation-through-art-with-artist-brenda-coyle/

 

2) Make and Create - Sunflowers by Van Gogh.

https://engage.org/happenings/make-and-create-sunflowers/

 

Drawing inspiration from Mr Ricketts' transformation of the pond area, we thought a nature theme would be good to start off our art. Don't forget to send in pictures of anything that you do to: year5@rockmount.croydon.sch.uk

 

ENJOY!

Autumn Term

So far this autumn term, Year 5 have really enjoyed learning about space and in particular the Moon Landing. The children have made space rocket models, biscuits you can eat in space and used different computer programs to simulate a rocket launch, which then orbits the Earth.

 

The children have also enjoyed reading George’s Secret key to the Universe, which has really influenced some of their writing. They have written some very descriptive pieces, detailing what it would be like to go into space. They were also given the opportunity to do some free writing with only the title of ‘Alien Encounter’ given to them. Some of their excellent stories are now on display.

 

To cap the topic off, the children visited the Science Museum, where they were able to learn even more about space by watching 3D movies on the Hubble Telescope, The Moon Landing and Planet Earth.

 

During Autumn term 2, we will be learning all about the World Wars, so stay tuned for some wonderful pieces of poetry and your children regaling you with interesting facts about the conflicts.
