Home Learning

Half-termly project

Our topic this half-term is 'Immigration'. Research a particular aspect of immigration to Britain since 1945. You might focus on immigration from a particular country; to a particular city or region, during a particular time period, from a specific individual's perspective or look at the impact of immigration from that time on our lives in Britain today (there is a lot of coverage in the news about the 'Windrush Generation at the moment').

You will need to report back to the class, for no longer than five minutes, during the week beginning 15th October. 

English

The Hampshire Libraries summer reading challenge is coming to an end this weekend. if you have complected it, bring in your certificate on Thursday 20th September and we will celebrate your achievements. There will be 10 house points reward too!

We have shared the school's autumn reading challenge with the children as well. There is a copy in each home learning Journal. You can also view the attachment at the bottom of the webpage.

Maths

We have started learning about Rounding this week. Have a look at the activity A6 https://uk.ixl.com/math/year-5 here.  

E-safety

In computing this week, we discussed staying safe online, the children's and adults' responsibilities too. All the children created a list of do's and don'ts but Harry and Nathan's was voted for by the class to form our class e-safety agreement for the year. A copy is attached below for you to look at together. A paper copy will be sent home next week for you to sign.

Well done to all those who put themselves forward as candidates this week. You all gave superb speeches. Many of the class have been chosen to be librarians and we also elected our School Council Rep, Arts Ambassador and Rights Respecting Reps.
