HOME LEARNING SITES:
Home Learning Wiki/FAQ for Year 5
Resource to help parents support their child's learning.
School Run is a fantastic website designed to help parents with primary school children. It offers masses of information and advice on the national curriculum. For instance, if your child horrifies you by asking you to help them write a relative clause, do not panic. Just pop over to the website, type in the term on the search bar and hey presto! Everything you need to know as a parent about relative clauses or other grammatical horrors is there. Here is the link:
The weekly timetable will help you structure your child's learning and is similar to the day in school.
Lessons in red will be live lessons that can be accessed via the Teams calendar.
Some lessons will have a hyperlink that will take you to online learning or other activities. To access the hyperlinks you will need to download the timetable document.
Lessons without links will have instructions telling the children what to do.
Some lessons will show an LO (learning objective) under the title. Children are to write this, along with the date, on a fresh page of their book for each lesson. Blue book for maths and yellow book for everything else.
Please remind your child to enter the live lesson with their camera turned off and microphone on mute, this will prevent any distractions before the lesson begins. They may have to wait to be admitted from the lobby by myself or Miss Bowden. Once them main teaching is complete the meeting will be ended to allow the children to begin their tasks. Please do not worry if your child misses the live learning, they will be recorded and saved on the appropriate channel in Teams. I will remind the children where to find them.
Please make sure your child has written their learning objective and the date in their books before the lesson begins.
These can be downloaded and printed, or your child can work from the screen and write the answers in their book. The tasks on the worksheets are accessible to children of all ability and are designed to challenge your child's problem solving skills. The questions will grow more challenging as your child moves through each stage of the worksheet. Please do not panic if your child is unable to complete the more difficult challenges, all I ask is that they give it their best shot using the knowledge they have been taught.
Where possible, I will attach answers for you. This can help you guide your child if they are finding the task difficult.
Learning by Questions
Some maths tasks will be completed on an online platform called Learning by Questions. On the day of the lesson your child will receive a three letter code. They enter this code into the link below along with their name and begin the task. Myself or Miss Bowden will be monitoring your child's progress remotely as they progress through the task. As with the worksheets, the questions will grow more challenging as the task progresses. Here is the link:
Although three reading lessons will be scheduled on the timetable each week, I would still like your child to continue reading their reading book and updating their reading diary at least three times per week.
On some comprehension tasks you will see the mnemonic VIPERS. This is related to the type of question being asked.
Sequence or summarise.
All reading comprehensions will have answers attached.
Work can be submitted via e-mail to Hawthorn@lawleyvillageacademy.co.uk. If possible, please submit work by the end of the day.
When instructed by the teacher, children will be able to complete written work via Class Notebook on Teams. I have attached instructions below this wiki showing you how to navigate and use Class Notebook.
During the school week the children have a least two hours of P.E. If you wish to continue with this regime there is the tried and tested Joe Wicks. During the last lockdown I found the children also enjoyed the Les Mills workouts. I have put a link below for you. Unfortunately not all of the workout are free but they are good fun. You can also find many of them on YouTube.
Where possible, please encourage your child to practise their times tables on TT Rockstars at least once a week.
I have created the instructions below to help you navigate your way around Class Notebook on Teams.
Week Commencing 20th March, 2021
Here is the timetable for this week. As stated above, all red lessons are live lessons linked to via Teams.
You will find printable worksheets for each lesson under the relevant day below. If you cannot print them, the children can have the worksheet on their screen and write the answers in their books. All worksheets are also available on Teams under the relevant channel.
