Hello Year 5,
How are you all? I hope you are all well and have had some opportunity to enjoy the lovely weather over the week. How did you get on with the VE celebrations ? I hope you had a chance to try out some of the activities. It was odd to have a bank holiday on a Friday as they are always normally on a Monday. What ever you did, I hope you had a lovely day with your families.
I was in school this week as I was in to look after the Key worker children, It was a strange week not seeing all of you however, it was also a successful week as we made bird boxes with Mr Langley. If you wish to have a go, Mr Langley has uploaded the instructions on the website. On Friday, the children made some bunting which they have hung up around the playground.
Year 5, after learning all about WW2, I am sure you could really appreciate the VE celebrations and I hope you shared your knowledge with you family.
I hope you have had a lovely weekend and I hope you enjoy the week ahead. Remember to keep reading.
I will write again at the end of next week.
Keep safe Year 5
Good afternoon year 5,
Did you all have a great weekend? I had a very lazy one this week. I just did a bit of gardening, a new jigsaw puzzle and I introduced my son to the film 'The Lord of the Rings' (It's not for younger children so please wait until secondary school before you watch it). On Saturday, I made mutter paneer (one of my favourites) and chapatis/roti. My roti are finally starting to look a bit better (although one came out perfectly square - how odd!) I will include a photo (although the square one is hidden). Don't laugh too much, please!
I hope you are all keeping well,
Good Evening Year 5,
How are you all? Although we are in 'lockdown', I seem to be more busy than ever before, entertaining my toddler (Eesa) seems to be one of the biggest challenges. Today we baked some pizza crackers, I let him use cutters to cut out different shapes. It took what felt like forever!!! Next time, I must remember to only let him use big cutters so we can get the job done quicker! We then took a walk around the garden and collected some things to create a picture. Any guesses what we tried to make!?
I wonder how you are all getting on with reading? I stumbled across this link today; https://www.wizardingworld.com/chapters/reading-the-boy-who-lived?utm_medium=tweet&utm_source=wwd&utm_campaign=hpah-video-chap1
Danielle Radcliffe (Harry Potter) reads the first chapter of Harry Potter and the Philosopher’s Stone/Sorcerer’s Stone, do you remember we looked at the YouTube clip from this film? Go on, listen to him read the first chapter, it really is great!
P.S Miss Kyle, those rotis are great! Getting them into a circular shape is tricky so a big well done you!
How did we hit the middle of the week so quickly? I have been busy with my meetings with the other leaders and teachers in school as well as talking to some of the lunch staff. All the adults in school have one thing in common and that is that they are missing being with all of you each day.
How have you been getting on with the different tasks we have set? If you have any problems just email school via the firstname.lastname@example.org email and each teacher will be able to respond to you. I hope as well as those activities you have had a chance to enjoy spending time with your family at home. It is a real treat to be able to do more things with my daughter (Lucy) even if we do get a bit cross with each other a times!
One thing we haven't done until this week was bake a big cake. I can't wait to eat it as I love cherries and strawberry jam which is in the middle.
To help balance the cake eating we have been for some walks around our local park too and today we took some bubbles with us to play with.
Write in and tell us what you have been up to, we love getting your messages and we could put pictures of your work up on the website.
Hope to talk again soon,
