5M Half Term Home Learning

Your task over half term is to research a famous invention or inventor of your choosing. You can present it as a poster, short book, or using ICT. Some inventors you could choose from are Thomas Edison, Nikola Tesla, Benjamin Franklin, James Watt, Marie Curie, Nancy Johnson, Maria Telkes, Grace Hopper or anyone else that you think are noteworthy inventors. I hope you have a fun and safe holiday and I can’t wait to see what you come up with when I see you in a week!

Be good,

Mr McArthur

Year 5 School Journey to Wick Court Farm

We made it! We’re having a great time and we’ve done so many amazing things. We’ve fed the pigs, fed the cows, fed the chickens, collected eggs, mucked out the geese pen, witnessed the birth of two lambs, did some gardening, landscaping for new beehives and cleaned up horse poop!

We’ve also learnt how to clean up after ourselves so when we get back home, we’ll be more than happy to show you our housekeeping skills!

We are waiting outside the boot-room ready for for hard days work on the farm!
In the barn, waiting to feed the animals.
Feeding the dragon composter!
Now you see why it’s called The Dragon!
Did you know that some chicken eggs are blue?
We were so lucky that we witnessed two lambs being born. We named them Edmund and Waller!
Cleaning out the goose house

New born lambs!


5M Half Term Home Learning

Year 5M half term Home Learning. Due in Monday 30th October 2017

Your Home Learning over the half term break is linked to our literacy work. Your challenge is to further develop your sea creatures in a different way from our non-chronological reports.

Some artistic ideas may include: A detailed drawing, painting, model or digital version of your sea creature.

You could also write a short story or newspaper report about your sea creature in preparation for next half term.

In addition to this task, I am expecting you all to continue reading regularly at home and practising your times tables as well as logging in to Bug Club and Mathletics as often as possible.
