New half term greetings


We continue to give marking and feedback on one piece of work per child per week.

All work should be sent to  stingraysstmargaretsipswich@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. We would like it emailed back to us please by Monday 8th June. We look forward to seeing it!


Feedback piece 1.6.20

The piece of writing we are setting this week is based on the Science lesson also included this week.  It will be in the form of a non-fiction information text and we have provided the success criteria which we will be focusing on in the document below.  There are also a couple of handy examples to help you along!  Have fun!

Maths for summer term week 6   1.6.20
Here is this week's Ninjas.

Maths this week is using White Rose & BBC Bitesize as the usual introduction.  The work is below, a support option is clearly shown.

Please remember to not attempt everything.  You will not get 'behind' in your learning.  The whole country is in a similar situation.  Balance learning time with family time.  

English for summer term week beginning 1.6.20

We are starting a new book this half term. Read the pdfs for each session first because sometimes you need to listen to the chapter first and sometimes you need to do the work first and listen afterwards! There isn't a chapter for every session.

Session 1 - Listen to chapter 1

Session 2 - Listen to chapter 2

Session 4

Session 4 - Listen to chapter 3

Session 5 - Listen to chapter 4

A note to adults helping pupils with their writing activities

Below we have included the writing expectations for Year 5. Please encourage your child to use these features in their work. Obviously, it's impossible to include everything in one piece of work but it gives you an idea of where we are headed.

SPaG for week beginning 1.6.20
Usually we would talk about SPaG in class so while you are at home you may need to discuss what you are required to do with an adult. There will be new SPaG next Monday.
Spellings and support for week beginning 1.6.20
Practise each day this week and ask someone to test you on Friday; you can keep a record of your weekly scores. There will be new spellings next Monday. wink

A note about reading

Reading is very important. Make sure you read every day. Find a comfy place to sit and build reading into your daily routine - you may find it is the best part of your day! Read anything and everything you are interested in. I go to the library a lot and always have library books to read. However, at the moment libraries are shut so I'm searching my own bookshelves for any book I haven't read and am also returning to old favourites to read them for the second or third time! (Yes, that's really true). Happy reading, Mrs W yes

Whilst we are talking about reading, you might fancy a little read about all this Coronavirus business and why it is important to keep practising our social-distancing.
Extra support week beginning 1.6.20 
Here is some work specially for you. You will need to read the story "Starry Eyed Stan" first. It takes a minute or two to load so give it time. To turn the pages you need to press the arrow keys on your computer.

Mrs Bigley would love to hear from you if you are able to calculate a mile and complete the challenge. If space is an issue, would you be able to do the skipping challenge?

If you complete and email any of these to Mrs Bigley she will email you in return a certificate. There are also quizzes to try.

Mrs Bigley's email address is   stmargaretspe2020@gmail.com

Science for summer term    1.6.20
We will be having a look at living things this half term - that’s a biology subject.  We will be setting weekly activities and including an explanatory PowerPoint to support your (already good) knowledge and understanding.  Think about your learning in relation to you and what’s around you.  Have fun.

Lesson 5 - 1.6.20. Metamorphosis.


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!
