Year 5 - Time to Celebrate

Created using Video Star: http://VideoStarApp.com/FREE

Celebration!

 

This week we want to celebrate all of the fantastic things that you have done in Y5. Use the list below to help you create a big full page doodle (that's right, a doodle!). Try to use your artistic flair to doodle like the Diary of a Wimpy Kid books or whatever style you prefer. I have added a picture below of a recent Y6 doodle as an example, obviously some things may be the same such as Covid 19 but some different.

 

This is a celebration of your year, even if it has been rather odd, it is important to look back at the good things and things you are proud of - such as the River Nile Diorama paper mâché. 

 

It is up to you how you present your findings. We would LOVE to see your photos / work so email us at:

year5prospect@outlook.com

Celebration Task

All About Florida - Year 5

Space

 

This week we would like you to do some Geography (probably the best subject there is!). We would like you to use Google Earth, either the App or by typing into Google to see if you can spot the launch pads at Cape Canaveral. Then do some investigating, why do most space agencies choose to blast off from Florida and were they always launched form Florida? 

 

Your main task is to create a fact file or presentation about the human and physical geography of Florida: Location, population, landmarks (don't forget Disney), weather, land types, seas and oceans, bordering states and lakes/ rivers. 

 

It is up to you how you present your findings. We would LOVE to see your photos / work so email us at:

year5prospect@outlook.com

Future Space Travel with Year 5

A message from Y5 teachers and an explanation for this week's tasks (scroll below)

Space

 

This week we would like you to look into the future of space travel. What is the plan? Where do they want to explore next? Why? What about the general public going into space?

Then we would like you to create a poster encouraging people to travel to space. Think about a slogan, persuasive language, fonts, images, colour and more. 

Here is my example: TO INFINITY AND BEYOND!

(all my own thoughts)

 

It is up to you how you present your findings. We would LOVE to see your photos / work so email us at:

This week we are going to look at Time Zones. Start by researching what lines of longitude and latitude are. Then watch the videos and create a poster or presentation of your choice about Time Zones. Finally, or within your work about Time Zones, think about what people around the world would be doing at 12pm GMT (Time in England). 

 

It is up to you how you present your findings. We would LOVE to see your photos / work so email us at:

This week we would like you to learn about Astronauts and what it takes to become a space explorer like Time Peake. We would like you to find information about Tim Peake and to create an astronaut training programme (one that you can try yourselves). Below are some useful video clips and websites to get you started and I am sure that you can find loads more websites to help and inspire you!

 

Do you have what it takes to become an astronaut?

https://www.bbc.co.uk/iplayer/episode/b092ng4q/astronauts-do-you-have-what-it-takes-series-1-episode-1  recommend that you watch just the start of this video to get an idea of what it takes to become an astronaut. If you want to watch the first 30 minutes this will show you some tasks (I would avoid watching more than 40 minutes to avoid seeing someone take blood- gross!) There are 6 episodes of this showing some of the tests that NASA or ESA might give- if you want to have a quick look. 

 

Who is Time Peake?

https://www.esa.int/kids/en/learn/Life_in_Space/Astronauts/Timothy_Peake

 

This week’s tasks: Create a presentation, fact file or poster about Time Peake. Watch some videos about astronaut training and create your own astronaut training programme- this can involve tests, challenges, puzzles or anything you think of (If you can set up a course at home and do it- amazing).

Space Oddity song by David Bowie: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=iYYRH4apXDo

(I know it’s obviously not as good as The Weekend…..but.... try it!)

 

Try to be creative with how you present your ideas and what you find out. If you want to do posters, Powerpoint, fact files, collages, pictures, a video or anything else- go for it!

Do use the email address: year5prospect@outlook.com to send us any photos / work you do and we will showcase some examples on Friday 1st May.

 

Look at some of the things that you guys have been doing at home!

Welcome to the Summer Term!

 

We know that things feel a little strange at the moment but we're so proud of you for staying safe and positive during this time. 

 

We love hearing from you and seeing what you've been doing. Keep emailing photos to year5prospect@outlook.com and we will showcase as many as we can - updating them each Friday!

 

This week we're launching "Learning by Questions" which is a great app for practicing our Maths and English. All you need is the internet and a device like a phone, tablet or laptop (see the letter on the website for more details). 

 

Each day we will be texting you a code which takes you to 3 activities chosen by us: Maths, Reading and Grammar  Get as far as you can. The app gives you feedback and handy hints, if you don't get it right first time. You may not reach the end but 20 minutes on each will give your brain a really good workout!

 

Next week we will be launching our new topic: Space (very exciting!) and don't forget the Superhero competition gets judged this Friday!

 

Good Luck!
