19.5.20 Happy Tuesday

Morning Year 5.

It’s been interesting reading some of your thoughts about the book The Lost Thing. I’m sorry that the original link didn’t work, but I hope that you saw my updated link or managed to find a version of the book online that you could read. Do continue to share any of your thoughts/work by adding a comment, posting a blog or sending me an email. It’s lovely to see hear from you.

Just for Fun Challenge –This weeks ‘Just For Fun’ challenge is to create a ‘socially distanced’ picture. See Monday’s blog for more information

Ideas for the day:

PE – If you want a change from Joe Wicks, you could have a go at some of the activities on this website:

Maths –Summer Term Week 3 (w/c 4th May) Lesson 2 Multiply 4 digits by 2 digits (or carry on from where you’ve got to in the work so far). You have to scroll right down to the bottom of the page to find the lesson – we are two weeks behind the resources on the website. We are on w/c 4th May.

Don’t forget to use the video to help you and the answers to check your work.

English – Today we are going to continue looking at the book The Lost thing and also think about how we can use parentheses in our writing.  There is all the work for the whole week in this link – we are on day 2. There is a PowerPoint you will need for a today. Also, there are Word versions of today’s activities if you’d prefer to type rather than write by hand. Try some, or all, of the activities.

Geography – Continue with your project about a European country.

Your project for the week is to research the geography of a European country.  Find out about the physical geography (that means mountains, rivers etc) and also about the human geography (eg about cities, population etc). How you present your work is up to you – perhaps you could make a little guide to the country?

Mon – you could start your project by choosing a country in Europe – perhaps one that you’d like to visit one day! You could look on a map and find out some basic information eg.  where the country is, what countries border it and what it’s capital city is.

Tues – You could find out about physical geography e.g the main rivers and mountains in your country of choice. How high is the tallest mountain? Perhaps you could draw a map and mark them on? If you’re feeling particularly creative, you could make a 3d map??
