Hello from the Year 5 Team- remote learning outline. Last updated- 22nd March 2020

Dear Children and Parents/Carers,

As you will know, Blessed Dominic has been forced to close. We would say a huge thank you for your continued support during this unpredictable time and hope to support you as much as we can over this period.

We will update our class pages daily by 9 am with work that the children can complete each day. Children also have access to websites (links below) where other activities shall be set, such as spelling. We will also have a list of links to websites that are offering free access to their materials, such as Twinkl, to help you through this time.

Your home learning guide can be found here: Year 5 Home Learning Pack

It’s important that children remain active during their time at home to stay healthy and positive. Joe Wicks, a fitness instructor, will be holding at home workouts for children daily at 9am on YouTube. Apps, such as GoNoodle, also provide exercise and mindfulness activities for children to keep their body and mind healthy.

Audible have made hundreds of books free during the school closures period. This would be a great way to spend time as a family to relax and get into reading together.

Please stay safe and we hope to see you all face to face again very soon!

Homework 18th November 2019

Suffixes –cial and –tial

The -ial suffix means ‘relates to’.

-cial -tial
The -cial suffix usually follows a vowel.  When examining the root word you can see that the e is dropped before adding -ial.

 

Here are some examples :

• Official (office)

• Facial (face)

• Racial (race)

• Artificial (artifice)

• crucial

The – tial suffix usually follows a consonant.  When examining the root word you can see that the ce is dropped.

Here are some examples:

• essential (essence)

• residential (residence)

• confidential (confidence)

• partial

• nuptial

 

As with all spelling rules there are always exceptions.

 

For example:

• initial (the –tial suffix is used after a vowel)

• commercial, financial, provincial (the –cial suffix is used after a consonant

Homework 31st October 2019

Parent Consultation Evenings- Autumn term further support

Posted in this section are some useful documents and website links to help your child with their year 5 work and learning. The back pages in the children’s planners are also extremely useful to help them in reading, spelling, writing and maths as well as topics e.g. Space.

Reading

The most important way to improve reading is to listen to your child read regularly; vary the material they read and ask questions about what they’ve read.

There are two main areas in reading: decoding and comprehension.

Decoding is reading words accurately and is a skill that most children in year 5 should have mastered. Fluent reading can still be a focus in some sessions, especially if reading new and challenging material e.g. encyclopaedia entries

Comprehension is the main focus of year 5 and 6 and is built through answering questions of varying levels of challenge. For home reading use these question stems to help form your questions and always ensure you are happy with your child’s level of detail- one word answers are rarely enough!

If you’re unsure of how to support your child’s reading at home/how to form questions then please let Ms Ford know and I’ll be happy to practise/demonstrate with you at an opportune moment.

Levelled home readers

When sending reading books home, staff have begun to write in specific targets for you and your child to focus upon when completing your daily reading together. These targets are from the National Curriculum and are suited at Year 5 level (or suited to your child depending on your child’s current levels). Please try and tailor your comment to how your child has performed in this skill area so we can tailor their reading to their needs.

Note regarding ‘level’ reading books- Please do not use the ‘Level’ of reader that your child is on as the sole indicator of their reading performance- sometimes ‘younger’ books will be sent home to help your child improve in a particular comprehension skill.

Please bear in mind that whilst word reading (decoding) might be fluent, comprehension skills tend to be a few levels behind and so books that may appear ‘easier’ to read should be therefore confidently and accurately understood.

Writing/spelling

Year 1 and 2 spelling list (Your child should be extremely familiar with these words and spell them correctly every time they are used. These are grouped by spelling rule but for an alphabetic list download this set- Year 1 and 2 alphabet)

Year-3-and-4-spelling-list  (your child should be able to spell these words already. Please keep revising if they cannot)

Year 5 and 6 spellings (your child should be learning how to spell these words during this academic year. Keep revising and revisiting these)

Good writers are good readers so to help improve your child’s writing make sure they are reading a varied diet- even books that they do not like- and you are discussing the way authors have presented information or created effects on the readers.

To help with PaG (punctuation and grammar) learning, ‘MC GRAMMAR’ videos can be useful and handy to revise concept- we use some of these in class too https://www.theteachertrain.com/mc-grammar

 

Handwriting

Children should be using cursive handwriting with correct letter formation. This is proven to help improve spellings and writing flow. https://www.teachhandwriting.co.uk/ is a free website that offers resources and videos to help with joined handwriting.

Maths

Year 5 maths mainly builds on prior learning so it is vital that children are confident in their number bonds, mental strategies and times tables for solving problems. Practising solving problems regularly using mental strategies wherever possible is vital for success at year 5. Websites like ‘Mathletics’ and ‘Times tables rockstars’ are always available regardless of the ‘homework day’ so please use them.

RUCSAC methods for word questions This is the RUCSAC steps for solving word problems.

http://www.timestables.me.uk/printable-pdf-quiz-generator.htm is a website that generates times tables tests for free

http://www.mental-arithmetic.co.uk/ is a free website that has mental maths worksheets to download and print out for completion. Pay attention to the menu when selecting as you can select different year groups/skills depending on your own child’s needs.

 


Wednesday 2nd October 2019
