Welcome to the wonderful world of Year 5C Amman!
Summer 1 2020
Class Teacher: Mr Clare
I hope you are all keeping safe and well and staying positive through these testing times. At least we have the weather on our side! We miss every one of you and can't wait for things to return to something approaching normal.
Message for parents/carers
Please put your own and your child's physical and mental health first, enjoy time as a family and then use the work we have sent home and put on the website as a guide for the things you could do. As we move into the summer term, there are some more useful websites that can help the children learn at home.
This first link has daily lessons for Maths, English and a variation of History, Geography and Science.
You start by clicking 'Start a Lesson' , then select Year 5/P6.
The lessons are dated and titled with the topic of learning E.g. 23 April: Maths - Multiples and Factors
Each lesson has some videos to help teach the children and some activities for them to answer.
This second link also has daily lessons for Maths, English and Foundation subjects.
The lessons are taught in a sequence so it is beneficial to begin on Monday's lesson, as the following lessons may refer to the subjects taught previously.
The next link is for White Rose Maths which provide daily challenges, activities and resources . They are uploading one lesson per day and this is the scheme of work that the teachers at St Cuthbert's normally follow so we highly recommend. First there is a video to watch which explains the activity for the children and then an activity to complete, which can be printed or opened in Microsoft Word.
This link has a weekly home learning pack that is available to download with lots of fun and engaging resources for a range of different subjects. If you click 'go to classroom secrets kids' you will find lots of games, videos and activities that the children can access for free.The website also has daily timetables to help with structuring the day and support on how to space out free time and learning with different lessons.
The final link is a Wellbeing Menu - please see document at the very bottom of this page under the heading 'Additional Resources'
We will update the web page as much as possible, with any new links or resources that may help you during lockdown. In addition we will be adding weekly tasks to the 2Do section of Purple Mash, MyMaths.and also Letterjoin (a handwriting resource with other fun activities)
Stay positive, stay healthy and look after yourselves and your family.
St Cuthbert's VE Day Competition
On Friday 8 May 2020 Britain will be commemorating the 75th anniversary of VE Day when the guns fell silent at the end of war in Europe.
Due to the coronavirus restrictions most VE Day 75 events and street parties have had to be cancelled or postponed including our celebrations at St Cuthberts. We still want to be able to mark this special occasion, share your pride in our country and honour the men and women of WW2 as a school community.
To do this, we want to create our very own VE Day school bunting including designs from as many pupils as possible. Each pupil is asked to design one of the bunting triangles. You can decorate your bunting triangle with pictures of whatever inspires you, whether it’s those who fought on the frontline or worked hard on the Homefront, or whether it’s a celebration of enduring peace or your own personal hero.
All entries will be included in our final school bunting, but there will be a prize for the most creative design awarded to each year group.
A bunting template is available to print off and use, but you can also draw or cut out a triangle shape on any paper to create your design.
Please send a photo of your design to email@example.com. Please entitle the email as ‘Bunting Competition’ and include pupil’s name and year group.
Remember to hold on to your original art work to bring to school once we open again!
Closing Date for entries: Friday 15th May
See documents at the bottom of this page or the class Google Drive for the design template and further VE Day activities. Here is a link which should help with creative ideas:
