Learning at home-Woodpeckers Year 5
Take a look at what some of us have been up to
The WhiteRose Hub website has daily learning for Maths that is based on decimals. Week 1 takes us through what we were learning before school closure so if you're in need of a recap, have a go at some of those tasks.
Week 2 takes us through new learning for decimals. Please have a go at each of these sessions over the week when you have time. Each activity comes with a learning video where you are talked through the skill - very important! Please watch these to ensure you fully understand the skill.
I hope you have a good day,
Morning Woodpeckers! Happy Monday!
Welcome to week 2. I hope you had a good first week settling in to your new routine and managed to get outside in the lovely sunshine. It's been very odd for me not seeing you all each day - very quiet! I know some of you are finding it a little tricky to work out a timetable (if using one). It might help to think about all the things you'd like to achieve in each day e.g. go for a walk, do some maths, write in my journal, make some lunch for my family, and try to tick each one off every day. They don't have to be done in the same order as the day before so you can get creative!
It's been lovely speaking to some of you today and hearing about what you've been up to. There's lots going on! Some mentioned maths being a bit of a struggle at home so I've put more resources on this page which will hopefully help! Please do email me if you need further support with this or even just to share what you've been doing. It would be great to put some of those photos on our page to keep us all in contact!
Mrs Henson and I are looking forward to seeing some of you later in the week if you're still in school. I will be in contact with many of you over the week to catch up so do listen out for the phone!
Have a good day and stay safe,
Below are documents and website links for home learning. The document labelled 'school closure work' includes reading, writing, maths and foundation subject ideas. There are 10 sessions available for reading, writing and maths - this is not an expectation but it does give daily learning in these areas just like we would be doing at school until the Easter break. The sessions are not new learning, but recap skills we've been doing since September. There are ideas for foundation subjects, too, and other challenges/tasks. You can only do as much as you can, so please don't feel like you have to do everything on the list and do go with your child’s interests! Singing, dancing, cooking, walking are all part of education too!
These ideas were shared with Woodpeckers' class and they have added their own ideas - enjoy! Please do share with us what you've been up to at home - we can put your work and activities on this page for others to magpie!
For further websites, please look on the school website in Curriculum Information.
All the best for the next few weeks,
Miss Heard and Mrs Henson
