Striver documents: Sports Day at home

Times Tables Rockstars Battle... GIRLS v BOYS Battle ended Thursday 16th July at 2:30pm RESULT: Boys won but it was a VERY close call

Take Action, Get Active 2020 | Mental Health Foundation We are launching a brand new challenge this May, to get you moving and feeling good, whilst fundraising for the Mental Health Foundation. Mental Health Awareness Week takes place in May and the theme this year is kindness. Our challenge is all about being kind to yourself by taking some time out each day for yourself. www.mentalhealth.org.uk

Let's get our children (and us) more active, as it helps with physical and mental health.

Please email me some photos (or short video clips) of Year 5 getting active, so we can celebrate their progress and encourage each other. 

9/4/20:   Stonehill School staff have spent some time this week, making a very special message to all of our pupils. Please check it out on Stonehill School's Facebook page... It's well worth a view!

 

 

 

Continuation of learning in Year 5:

1/6/20:  Summer 2

Well done to all the children and their families, who are beavering away with their learning at home. It's really important for children to keep practising the key skills, so they don't get rusty. Once schools are back to normal, children will readjust easily if they have been using their key skills regularly.

 

If you find that the amount of work I put up each day is too much for your child, please scale it back slightly. It is very important that children are not feeling stressed, while they are trying to learn. Take frequent small breaks if need be, to maintain a calm environment.

 

If you are ever unsure how to do something or you are not confident whether something is right or not, please email me. I will happily explain what to do, or say if something is right or not. Remember, teachers are still working (even if their classes are not back in school yet). 

 

Judging by the emails I have received, the children are benefitting from having a fairly structured day. We suggest sticking (where possible) to a similar timetable to a school day, with breaks and play included.

 

Recently, I have been using a combination of the Maths text book your child was given and BBC Skillswise website for Maths lessons and for English I have been using mainly BBC Skillswise website.

 

I don't always use them on the date that the BBC say, so please read on my planning grid to find the lesson that I am using for that day.

If you have any problems at all, following my plan or you can't find something, please email me and I will endeavour to answer ASAP.

 

If you or your child does not understand something, please email me ASAP.

 

If your child needs a new exercise book, please contact the school to arrange to collect one. If this is difficult for you, either myself or another member of staff will be able to drop it to your house. If you want to return your child's completed exercise book for feedback, please do so.

 

Remember: The little white booklet folded into A5 size explains all the grammar terms your child needs to know. (Children were told they could decorate the cover of this if they wanted to). Remember The resources: text books, pencil cases and the children's work will need to be returned when the school reopens for your child.

 

Children have all been given copies of their log-in details 

(in planners or in their folders of books) but I am very happy to email log-ins and passwords to you, if these have gone missing.

  • Times Tables Rockstars (now including Numbots)
  • Spelling Shed
  • Purple Mash
  • Accelerated Reading 

 

Remember: If you are in need of any help or support, you can email me at : Catherinerichardson@stonehill.herts.sch.uk

 

Your child can also email me (with parental consent) and I will reply. I aim to reply to all emails ASAP. Many thanks, Mrs Richardson.

   quizzes on their reading books:

LI: To learn about imperial measurements and their relationship to metric measurements

  Think about any units of measurements you may hear mentioned in real-life but have  

  never worked on in school. I am thinking about imperial measurements. 

 

  IMPERIAL MEASUREMENTS were the only units of measurement officially used in the     U.K up until the early 1970s, when the new metric units came in.   

  When we buy something, it has to be labelled and priced in metric measures, but many     people still think and talk about the older imperial measurements.

 

How many imperial measurements can you and your family think of? Use the questions below to help you.  

 

Brainstorm units of measurement for:     Write down the answers   

  • Distance / length: What does your SAT NAV say about when to turn off the motorway?  ______________________________________________

 

  • Height:  Ask your parents and other adult family members how tall they are.

      _______________________________________

 

  • Weight or mass: What did you and your siblings weigh at birth? What units of measurement does your grandma measure her cake ingredients in?

        ________________________________________

 

  • Capacity: Think about when your family buy milk ( a ____ of milk)     or

                                                                                  petrol ( a _______ of petrol)

LI: To retell a story

Re-read, 'The Forbidden Forest' from yesterday. Look at your vocabulary sheet.

 

Read the first paragraph again, then, taking each sentence in turn, write your own version of each one (keeping the meaning the same).

 

Work your way through the paragraphs, rewriting each one. 

 

Try to include:

  • interesting vocabulary (try to use some words you haven't used before).
  • one piece of alliteration (eg. the titanic tree trembled).
  • effective descriptions
  • at least one simile (eg. The king's anger exploded like a volcano).
  • a metaphor, (eg. The repulsive king was a disaster waiting to happen)
  • one piece of speech (Note: You should never use too much speech - it slows the                                                                                                              action down)
  • different punctuation,   , . ! ?  (   )  - 
  • relative clauses (eg. The girl, who was quick-witted, escaped from the tyrant).
  • modal verbs  (could, would, should, couldn't etc)
  • modal adverbs (possibly, probably, maybe, definitely, certainly)

 

Write up to the time that the girl went to live with Grandma.

 

Read your work back to proof-read it. Check the spelling, punctuation and grammar.

 

Remember a simple sentence contains just one idea.

If your sentences have more than one idea, they MUST have a conjunction (joining word), eg.    and,    but,   so,    because,        then,      when, while,

Polygon means 'many sided shape' and refers to shapes that are straight-sided shapes.

regular shapes:      have sides which are all the same length.

                                 have angles that are all the same.

                                 you can pick the shape up, turn it around and it looks the same.

 

irregular shapes:    have sides which are NOT all the same length.

                                 have angles that are NOT all the same.

                                 if you turn the shape around, it looks different

LI: To consolidate the use of apostrophes

Look carefully and read the two posters about apostrophes (saved below)

 

Remember: apostrophes are used for two reasons:

To show possession (ownership) :

eg  Katie's jumper       David's book

 

Sometimes called contraction (two words joined together)

or omission (letters left out):

eg      was not  -  wasn't,   did not  - didn't,  I am  -  I'm,  I will - I'll,  could not  - couldn't

you are  -  you're,  I have  -  I've,  will not  - won't  etc

 

Read 'The Princess and the Fool', a legend from Kent (saved below)

 

Write some sentences, using apostrophes  about 'The Princess and the Fool', in your book eg.

Apostrophes for omission: (Write 5 sentences using different contracted words)

Jack wasn't such a fool after all. 

The king didn't want the fool to marry his daughter.

 

Apostrophes for ownership: (Write 5 sentences using different contracted words)

The king's executioner went into the bedroom.

Jack's brothers were very embarrassed about him.

The Doughnut Thief

by Mrs Richardson and the UKS2 Bubble

 

 

There once was a very plain doughnut,

Who had no colour, no flavour and no nut.

He was dull and boring and had no topping,

Nobody looked at him - nobody was stopping.

 

'What can I do?' thought the snack.

As he sat on the shelf, right at the back.

"Please pick me!" he called out loud

To the hungry people in the crowd.

But nobody did

Nobody cared

Nobody looked            

Nobody stared.

 

So the doughnut came up with a cunning plan,

To make sure he was chosen by the next man.

He would steal the toppings and fillings from the others

To attract the shoppers, the kids and their mothers.

 

So in the dead of night, when the shop was closed,

The doughnut crept from his shelf and stood and posed...

From each other snack he stole some topping

And stuck it to him, just like he was shopping!

 

Some sprinkles here, some chocolate there.

Strawberries, sugar arranged with care.

Cherries and icing, caramel and cream.

He was determined to be picked it. It was his dream!

 

The very next morning

The people came in...

Without any warning

They shouted, " I want him!"

 

One large man with a big, round face.

Managed to come first in the doughnut race.

He paid his money and grabbed his cake.

He didn't care that the box might break.

 

He grabbed the sticky treat in his large, round fist...

He aimed for his mouth but clumsily missed.

The doughnut realised a little too late...

Being chosen by a customer sealed his fate!

 

The last anyone saw of the doughnut full of jelly,

Was as it slipped out of sight, into the greedy man's

Belly!

  Spring Term Highlights:  

 

Art Week: (w/b  27th January 2020)

 

 

World Book Day

Autumn 1

Year 5 have had a very busy first half-term.

 

In English, we have learnt the features of a biography and have written a biography for Mary Anning. We also read some short stories from a book called, 'Tales from Outer Suburbia' by Shaun Tan and explored the author's use of language. 

 

In Maths, we worked on place value, writing larger numbers and rounding. We converted fractions to decimals and vice-versa. Another major focus was multiplying and dividing by powers of 10.

 

In topic, we learned about the properties of materials. We did some experiments, focussing on fair testing. 

 

In Art & Design Week, we learnt to sew and produced a very effective collaborative collage based on our 'Materials' topic. Each child did their own small collage, representing a particular material. The finished result is on display in the entrance hall and has attracted lots of positive comments. 

Art & Design Week: DT focus (w/b 30th September 2019) Sewing project linked to Science

Autumn 2

 

This is going to be a very busy half-term. Our new topic, 'The Vikings', has a history focus and also includes some geography. Viking Day on 27th November will be very fun and informative. We will be looking for some adult volunteers to help on the day.  Parents and Grandparents, who have helped on previous occasions, have always thoroughly enjoyed their day. If you think you can help, please speak to Mrs Richardson or the school office ASAP.

 

In Maths, we will be learning some new methods of calculation and will be consolidating and deepening our prior learning with mastery activities. 

 

In English, we will be exploring poetry and will link this to Remembrance Day. After this, we will be studying Shakespeare's play, 'Macbeth'. Children benefit enormously from studying these fascinating works of literature and immersing themselves in the richness of Shakespeare's language.  The story of 'Macbeth' is still really rivetting and children love it.

 

Year 5 are very fortunate that we still have coaches from Stevenage F.C to teach P.E this half-term. These lessons will continue on Monday afternoons until Christmas. It is very important that children bring their P.E kit for these sessions, for hygiene reasons and also to set up good organisation skills for Secondary school. 

 

By Year 5, children should be responsible enough to bring the correct equipment each day (eg reading book, planner and P.E kit). Most of our children manage this, but far too many are turning up without the things they know that they need. It is worth noting that repeated failure to bring the correct equipment to school can result in a yellow or red card. 

 

Over the next few weeks, we will be practising Christmas songs ready for our 'Carols on the Playground' at the end of term.

 

 

 

                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                  

Essential Websites:

(Children should go on these 2 or 3 times per week)

Spelling Shed and Times Tables Rockstars are an ongoing

part of children's homework, together with their reading and

Learning Log tasks of course :)

 

Woodlands Junior is a fabulous, and completely safe, website to support

children's learning in all areas of the curriculum.

Their Maths Zone is especially good for practising and consolidating all

the different mathematical concepts children need to understand.

There are lots of games and activities to do.

Homework Help is great for home learning involving research.
