Year 5 Home Learning 23.11.18

Remarkable Reading!

Where do you like to read?! Is there somewhere strange or surprising that you have curled up and read your book? In order to brighten up our book corners, we would like you to bring in a photo of you reading in an unusual or interesting place, or perhaps just your favourite location.

Shape mania!

Next week, our maths work will focus on shape and specifically, nets of 3D shapes. We would like you to bring in a net from home. This might include a net for a cuboid (a cereal box perhaps) but we would love to see some more interesting nets too… Can you get your hands on a net for a triangular prism or a cylinder? Is it even possible to have a net for a sphere?! Challenge yourself with this! Bring yours in on Monday morning to help us kick off our week’s learning.

Story sharing

Yesterday, Year 5 were lucky enough to team up with Year 6 children and hear the brilliant stories that they have been writing in their English lessons, based on the myth of King Midas.

The Year 6 children began by reading their blurbs and then the stories themselves with expression as the Year 5s listened, on the edge of their seats until the end!

Thank you very much to all Year 6 children – we loved being able to experience some of your learning.
