Year 5 Summer Term - Space Topic

 

Shwmae pawb! We hope that you have all enjoyed a well-deserved rest over the Summer half term break and that you have made the most of the lovely weather! We would like to thank you all for your excellent effort with the work that you have completed at home over the past few months and we have loved communicating with you all through Google Classroom. Keep up the fantastic work everyone!

 

Just to remind you, here is a guide of the amount of work that you should be completing daily (Mon-Fri) whilst at home:

  • Independent reading (10 minutes)

  • Times tables practise or Times Tables Rock Stars / Numbots (10 minutes) - ask your parents to test you on Fridays!

  • Spelling practise (5 minutes) – ask your parents to test you on Fridays!

  • Welsh placemat or key phrases practise (5 minutes)

  • One of the Numeracy OR Literacy activities uploaded to Google Classroom (e.g. Numeracy on Monday, Literacy on Tuesday etc.) Alternatively, you could do a little of both subjects each day.

 

We are also introducing a new topic focus for the final half of the Summer Term, which is our Space Topic! Here you we will be learning all about our Solar System and the Universe.

 

In order for you to lead your own learning in this topic, please aim to complete at least 3 activities per week from the International Homework Menu that we have posted on Google Classroom, but feel free to complete more if you would like to!

 

As usual, all of your work has been uploaded onto Google Classroom. Work can be completed on Docs or Slides and photographs/videos can be uploaded to show us what you have been doing. If this is not possible, work can be completed in your Home Learning book.

 

Also a big thank you to all of our fantastic parents and carers for the support you are giving your children at home - we really appreciate it! If you have any questions or need any support with regards to the work provided, please feel free to contact your child’s teacher through Google Classroom or via email:

mrsdriscoll@llanyrafonprimary.co.uk

Thank you for your continued support!

HOME LEARNING - GUIDANCE FOR PARENTS

 

We appreciate your continued support with your child's learning during the current situation. Below are a list of possible questions that you may have about learning at home, with answers and links to appropriate resources:

 

Where will I find any work that has been set for my child?

All work will be posted online using Google Classroom.

 

How does my child log on to Google Classroom?

Follow this link to the Google Classroom login page - classroom.google.com 

Children use their school email address to log in (e.g. - JoeBloggs@llanyrafonprimary.co.uk)

Password is the same as logging on to Chromebooks in school.

 

Where should my child's work be completed? 

Work can either be completed using Google Docs / Slides / Drive and submitted on Google Classroom, or written into Home Learning books that have been sent home.

 

I have a problem or a question for my child's teacher. How can I contact them?

Children are more than welcome to post questions to their teacher and peers on the Google Classroom stream. Should parents want to contact teachers directly, please send an email to:

  • Mrs Driscoll - mrsdriscoll@llanyrafonprimary.co.uk
  • Mr Edwards - mredwards@llanyrafonprimary.co.uk

 

My child has completed all of the work that they've been set. What now?

  • Teachers will be updating Google Classroom at appropriate intervals with new tasks should the need arise. Please visit Google Classroom regularly to keep up to date.
  • Please feel free to also push your child on in areas that you feel would benefit them (e.g. practising areas of Numeracy/Literacy that they find difficult, learning a new times table, extra reading, spelling/punctuation practice, investigating a new topic that interests them etc.) 

 

Which times tables should child be practising?

 

What other areas of Mathematics should I be covering with my child?

 

Where can I find National Tests past papers for my child to practise with?

 

 

Important Information for Year 5:

 

P.E./Games 

Games lessons will take place on Tuesdays and Gymnastics/Dance on Fridays.  Could you please ensure your child has the appropriate kit in school for these days.

Homework

  • Homework is given every Thursday and collected the following Tuesday.
  • Reading books are expected to be brought to school every day.

Dinner Money

Dinner money must be sent in to school daily, clearly marked with your child's name in a small container or envelope - £2.40 per day. Fresh fruit is also offered at morning play times at £0.30 per portion.

 

Please also note:

On days where the weather is wet/cold etc., please could you ensure your child wears appropriate clothing to school e.g warm waterproof coat, hat, gloves and scarf. 

 

Many thanks for your continued support
