Note from your teachers (Tuesday 24th):
Good afternoon to all in Year 5.
It is good to know from your emails that you are continuing to work and follow the ideas we sent you. We are monitoring the Mathletics and I can see many of you did really well. We are reading your emails and responding to your questions so keep them coming if you need any help or explanations. Sending you all our best wishes on this lovely day.
As the churches are closed at the moment, we know that you are continuing to pray with your families at home. It is important that we continue to follow Jesus. To help you do this we have created an R.E. page on the home learning area. As the Holy Week approaches, please use these tasks. There will be further details in the newsletter tomorrow.
Keep well, stay in and stay safe.

Friday - Book review
Today write a book review for the book you have been reading this week.
You can use the template and the powerpoint below to help you.
Thursday - Creative writing.
Today would like you to write a short story.
Your character has to overcome a great set back in their life. Describe their adventure to overcoming the problem, and succeeding in the end.
You can email images through to Mr Blom, Ms Mitchell, and Ms Butler via Year5@st-helens-jun.essex.sch.uk
Please remember, that if you are using a tablet device, you should download

If you or your parents would like to mark the Mental Arithmetic book work, the answers have been made available by Schofield and sims. Follow the link below.
Friday - Geography
List as many European countries and the capitals as you can.
Choose one of them to create a fact file.
Add images and facts such as currency, food, culture, iconic buildings and other interesting information you can find out about the capital city. This can be completed using a computer if you wish.
Thursday - PE
Challenge 1 - Participate in Joe Wick's PE Session!
Challenge 2 - Keepy Uppy Challenge
How long can you keep the ball in the air? This can be using any ball or even sports equipment. Try a hockey stick and ball, tennis Racket and ball.
You can choose from the following activities – or do all of them!
Continue to log onto the Charanga website charanga.com/yumu using your Username and Password given to you on a sticker by your teacher. If you do not have this email, contact Mrs Romhany via Music@st-helens-jun.essex.sch.uk or via the link on the ‘Contact teachers’ section and I will email it to you.
I can see many of you have been using the Recorder book ‘Blown Away’ – Remember to start from the beginning and work steadily through. That way you can work on your technique (making a good sound and covering the holes.) Why not keep a tick list of the pieces you have played, so you can show me back at school or you can email it to me?
Continue to look at the topic I have shared: ‘Living on a Prayer’. Go through the activities, starting with Step 1, singing the song and doing the warm up games. You can move on further if you wish! Step 2 involves playing your instruments, which can be recorder, keyboard, violin, flute etc.
I have added some more to Charanga. I could see lots of you were enjoying your singing, so there are lots of new songs under ‘Assignments’ – at the very bottom; some pop, some film and theatre – something for everyone!
If you are interested in a particular instrument, I have added the guitar, keyboard or violin course.
Keep singing and playing! And involve your family too!
Start a new book today.
