WELCOME TO YEAR 5 CLASS PAGE
Our teachers are Mrs Freestone (Monday and Tuesday) and Mrs Stafford (Wednesday - Friday) and our teaching assistant is Mrs Fixter.
Welcome to the Year 5 home learning page. The children were sent home with a book to work from so they can do the tasks set in this. We will add links for those able to print out. If you can't please do not worry, the children can do any writing and maths answers in the book. Make sure they write the date in their book like they do in school.
Please do not hesitate to contact us if you have any questions. If you can send us any photos of the children's work we will put these on the class page to develop a gallery.
Please contact us if you have any questions

Good morning kids. It was great to get pictures from Reece and Nikita yesterday. Thanks boys you made me very happy and produced some super work
Here is your work for today. Please remember to work as neatly as you can, date each piece of work and give it a title.
Spellings: Practicing words with double letters
English: I have managed to add the link today so you can listen to Cave Elves by clicking below!! We are going to continue using the Cave Elf text to get a really good idea of what Cave Elves are like and how they live. Today I want you to read or listen to the text again and this time using what you have read or heard write down a menu that you think a Cave Elf would like. Then have a look at activity 5 and write me a detailed list of items that a Cave Elf would need in his/her knapsack - a picture would be lovely too.
Art: In art this term we are going to be looking at portraits. Look at the portraits below
(download the document for a larger version) Think about how artists have shown the person. As a mother? As a friend? As an important person? Friendly? Funny? Frightening? Thoughtful?
Think about why portraits are made, eg to record an important time in a person's life, to project a powerful image of the person, to show people as wealthy, clever or hard working.
Choose one portrait and describe these details in your book:
•the person or people and the objects they are holding, what they are wearing, where they are,
•the main shapes and colours in the image
•how the image makes you feel about the person portrayed. What sort of person is this? What is the person doing? What does the image tell you about the person? Would you like to meet them? Why/why not? What would you ask them?
You are going to practice drawing a portrait today. Watch video ( or click on the link at the bottom):
In pencil have a go at drawing portraits in your book.
Think about how can you make a portrait more “personal”/ look like the person you are drawing. Facial features e.g. freckles, shape of nose, mouth and eyes. Types of hair and clothing.
Experiment drawing yourself and send me pictures! I can't wait!
Maths: Complete the maths Mrs Freestone set on Monday.
Please send me pictures of all of your work, I love to see them. Have fun xxx
Thursday 7th January 2021
Good morning petals. I hope you got on with your work OK yesterday. It was good to hear from Justas, I'm glad I could help with your question The answers to yesterdays spelling activity and English activity are below.
Your spellings today are practicing choosing the correct words for each sentence. I will post the answers tomorrow. Make sure you spell them correctly!
Please type in this web address: https://soundcloud.com/talkforwriting/whisperer/s-im7KkHzc880
or click on the link at the bottom of today’s work and listen to Pie Corbett reading the text you read yesterday: Cave Elves.
I would like you to complete the activity below making sure that you clearly label the picture using information and phrases from the text.
Then complete activity 3 by copying the map into your book and marking clearly where you think the cave elves might live. You will need to listen to the text or read it again to work out where a good place would be. Don’t forget to give me three reasons.
The painting you looked at yesterday was by the artist William Frederick Yearnes and it was painted in 1878! It is called "When did you last see your father?" and shows a family who have been captured by the enemy during the English Civil war. The boy is being questioned about the where his father is. We will look at this painting again later on in the topic. Soooo our topic this term called We are going to Newark in the 1600's and we are going to be finding out about life in Newark during this time and about The Civil War. Today I would like you to look at our Topic Knowledge organiser which has lots of important information all about the 1600's and the Civil War. When you have read it write down 5 questions that an adult in your house could answer by reading the knowledge organiser themselves. They could write the answers in your book. If no adult can do this write the questions and email them to me or send me a photo of them and I will have a go!
Dont forget to click on the documents at the bottom of todays work to see larger versions and PLEASE send me pictures of your work! Have fun xxxx
