Class 5 Summer week 3
Good morning and a happy May to you all.
I’m still loving all the great notes you are sending with your online homework. This week is the anniversary of VE day, what does VE stand for? How did people celebrate it then? How can you celebrate now? In my road we are all decorating our houses, could you make some decorations too?
There are some WW2 activities on Purple Mash this week, what can you remember from our learning earlier in the year about it. What can you remember about what you found out about your family during WW2? I wonder how they would have celebrated VE day? My own dad was a little boy and he had a street party with everyone in his street.
Term 5 week 3 spellings – Is the person testing your spellings telling a little lamb story with them? If not perhaps you could make one up for them.

The BBC Bitesize daily lessons are great and you will recognise some of the clips and activities as we use them in school too - https://www.bbc.co.uk/bitesize/tags/zhgppg8/year-5-lessons/1
Please get on to Times Table Rock stars and NumBots. The people who have been on them are making massive progress.
English – I do hope you are enjoying Harry Potter so far. There are lots of letters, good and bad, in this book, could you write a letter to someone? You could send one to me at school or you could write to someone you know is living alone at the moment. It would really cheer them up. Perhaps you could write to someone else in the class. Max sent an amazing interactive quiz to me, I really enjoyed doing it and have you seen Erin's Harry Potter animation on the school facebook page?
On Purple Mash this week I have set you some touch typing skills, this is one of the most useful things you can do as you will need these skills throughout your life.
Keep yourself informed of what’s going on in the world by watching Newsround, I know we always love this in class - https://www.bbc.co.uk/newsround
Science – How is your plant coming on? Has it started to grow yet? Can you keep a diary of the changes?
PE – it’s really important to do some physical activity every day especially going for a walk. Exercise helps us to keep our bodies and our minds healthy. Have you tried anything new? Don’t forget Go Noodle too.
RE- Now it is the month of May can you remember what we do in May at school? The year six dress up lead a special service where we go outside. Can you remember what we say ten of? What can you find out about the special lady we say this to?
If you have made or done anything that we can all have a look at please send your pictures to school and they will be added to the school Face Book page.
Send them to firstname.lastname@example.org
Stay safe, keep smiling and keep learning
