Year 5 Home Learning Week Commencing 13th July

Hi Year 5,

Wow! It is hard to believe that we are now in our final week of Year 5. You have all amazed us this year with your hard work and positive attitudes. We have missed you all and look forward to seeing you in your new classes.

English

This week, we are going to have at go at writing our own poem. Poems are best when they are read aloud because they are all about how language sounds and feels. Choose some of the poems below and listen to them. What did you enjoy? What did you dislike? What words are most memorable? Why?

Watch the clip. Simon Mole, a poet, takes you through the steps of writing a poem. There is opportunity to pause the video and record your ideas so you will need a pen and piece of paper handy.

At the end, you will have a poem based around your own character. You will think about what their eyes look like, what your character’s breath smells like, how your character moves, what your character is holding and finally what your character might say.

We would love to read your poems so remember to share them in the comments.

Geography

As it is nearing the summer holidays, I’m sure we are all excited to get out and about in the sunny weather. Many of us will not be able to travel far this year, but England has some amazing holiday destinations. A very famous destination is the Lake District.

Use this link to research the lake district. What is it famous for? Who has helped to make the area and animals around there famous? If you were going on holiday to the lake district, what activities do you think you would do there?

History

Follow the link to learn all about the Kingdom of Benin. Where is it? What was it like to live there? After reading through the information, create a concept map showing everything you have learnt.

We would love to read lots of your work during this week so keep posting your comments.

There is still time to add your stone to our snakes. All you need to do is paint your own design onto a stone and add it to the box which is located outside the office at both sites.

Have a great week!

Mrs Turiccki, Mrs Hatfield and Miss Whaites.

    The crow and the fox
    (By Michael Rosen)
    Since he did it French it was confusing because I haven’t heard this story before but his actions help me fathom the tale. These are the memorable words that I picked up : Bonjour corbeau.

    A ballroom for St Bernards
    (By Kit Wright)
    The introduction doesn’t really rhyme but the rest does so there is mixed feelings in this poem. Memorable words – My great big darling you dance divinely

    How to turn your teacher purple!
    (By James Carter)
    I really like how it puts in some metaphors ,which makes it exciting!
    Here are some memorable words that I found : how’ll she scream in the shower!!!
    With my honest opinion, I think this one is my favourite.

    Hope you liked it and your doing well 😁😄

    I have a question for my new teachers Mrs Wild and Mrs Armstrong.

    For Mrs Wild- What is your favourite subject? Mine is art!
    For Mrs Armstrong- What is your favourite food? Mine is chicken nuggets!

    I’m so excited to work with you!

      Dear Maysha, It was so lovely to hear from you; particularly with some of your favourites. In answer to your questions, my favourite subject is music and Mrs Armstrong’s favourite food is salmon. We hope you have a wonderful summer and read lots of books. See you in September.

    hello everybody i just wanted to share my poem

    boom

    he has crazy black hair and a nice warm touch
    his voice is loud and he talks to much
    this might be shocking because his name is boom
    but he carries a bag of calm around the room
    he stomps around in his dynamite shoes
    and if he is angry he might blow a fuse
    boom is quiet fat although he doesn’t eat gluten
    once someone sat on him like he was a cushion

    Pies And Cakes

    Apple Pie, Peach Pie and Blueberry too,
    Not forgetting the one made out of glue.

    Victoria Sponge and Upside down cake,
    Nothing beats the one mum makes .

    With all the lovely bakes ,
    And the long and boring waits,
    There’s one that I never got to taste ,
    The one I dropped in the lake.

    Here is some poems I have written for English. Hope you like it

    Number 1.
    2020 gave us stress
    The world is feeling really depressed

    The schools have closed
    Because of Covid
    People protested
    And I’m only a kid

    Wash your hands
    It is key
    So you dont spread the virus
    I guarantee

    Pollution thankfully has stopped
    Were losing our money that we worked
    For this loss of time I cant decline
    2020 is one of the worst years of mine

    Number 2.
    Flowers have different colours its true
    Some are red and some are blue
    I like buttercups what do you like?
    Flowers that are soft or flowers that have spikes

    They also have a variety of smells
    Roses, tulips and bluebells
    Pulling flowers is some crime
    This is the end of this rhyme

    Number 3.
    I have a year group that is cool
    No one here will drool
    All of them are my friends
    Friendships that break will mend

    Theres lyla, Star and Andy
    Justin, Adam and Mandy
    And many more!
    They give you a tour
    They are the schools core

    Emily, Emma and Mimi
    Cleo, Mason and Matty
    They’re the clowns in this year
    They always listen with their ears

    There are many more that I cant fit in
    But seeing this will make them grin
    I hope you enjoyed this list
    We dont put up with fists.
