Dolphins - Year 5

Mon 1 6 20

Dear Dolphin's,

We hope you've had a lovely half term and enjoyed the weather and hopefully getting out and about a bit more! So this week we have lots of new activities for you so please check them out and have a look at what the homework is this week. Some of you will receive a phone call from Mrs E-D this week and some of you will have one from Mrs S next week. It will be from a with held number if your parents wonder who it is! It's just a quick check in call with you (the children) as we miss you!

We look forward to hearing from you and seeing your work this week!

Mrs E-D & Mrs S laugh



We will be giving marking and feedback on one piece of work per child per week.

All work should be sent to  dolphinsyr5@gmail.com

* We will indicate at the beginning of the week which piece of work would be the most suitable.  If you are particularly pleased with a different piece of work, or need help, then of course you may send that instead.

* The work for this week, beginning Monday 1st June, is outlined below and we would like the work emailed back to us by Monday 8th June. You have one week to complete this.

* Please complete your work in an editable format such as Word, PowerPoint or Publisher; or a photo if you make a poster.


Thank you!

Keep in touch..

Marvellous Maths- 1.6.20

This week we are sending you to the White Rose page, in conjunction with the BBC Bitesize page, as they have videos and tasks (with answers) for the children to do daily. You don't need to print off the sheets the children could just write down their working out and answers on a piece of paper.

Resplendent RE

Our topic for this half-term in RE is Pilgrimage.  Using the resources provided - talk to your child about the key question (they will be used to this and know that each lesson gives them knowledge and understanding to answer the question at the end of the half-term).  Then, starting with the learning objective, go through the activity including the video links provided.  Thought bubble questions entail having a quiet think and then sharing your answers, speech bubble questions involve discussing your thoughts with a partner and there is a final task too.

Please send in any photos you take of you all doing this activity - we have an RE scrapbook to fill for each topic so any pictures, comments and ideas are always welcome!
