P5

Welcome everyone to the P5 Home Learning Page. Here you will find work for your child organised in weekly stars. Click on the appropriate star depending on the date and you will find lots of resources and activities to help your child with their home learning.

 

A typical literacy lesson should look like this:

 

10 mins - Watch BBC Newsround

10 mins - Spelling Activity

25 mins - Literacy Activity in Step 1, 2 OR 3 (choose the most suitable for your child's ability. Step 1 is the easiest and Step 3 the most difficult)

15 mins - Bug Club OR Accelerated Reader

 

You will find more information about this below.

 

BBC Newsround

We would encourage the children to start each literacy lesson by watching the latest edition of BBC Newsround to keep up-to-date with what's happening in the world. Click on the BBC Newsround link provided on the main Home Learning page.

 

Spelling Activities

Each week the children will be provided with their weekly spellings. During the week the children will need to find the definitions using a computer or dictionary, draw illustrations of the spelling words and put these words into sentences. These are the same activities which the children have been doing all year as part of their homework. We hope they will keep practising these over the course of the week so that you can give them a weekly test on a Friday.

 

Literacy Activities

Each day the main literacy lesson will focus on either grammar, punctuation, comprehension, writing or talking and listening. There may be a video clip or PowerPoint presentation to watch prior to completing the activity. The children will then complete the tasks set in either Step 1 (easiest), Step 2 OR Step 3 (most difficult) depending on which is the appropriate level of difficulty for your child. We don't want children to struggle with work they are finding too hard.

 

The worksheets can be downloaded to answer on or just be viewed online with written work completed in an exercise book or page. Answers will be provided in the Teaching Notes where possible.

 

Bug Club/Accelerated Reader 

Each day the children should log into Bug Club or Accelerated Reader.

 

A typical numeracy lesson should look like this:

 

15 mins - Mathletics

5 mins - Times Table Rock Stars

10 mins - Mental Maths Activity

30 mins - Numeracy Activity in Step 1, Step 2 OR Step 3 (choose the most suitable for your child's ability. Step 1 is the easiest and Step 3 the most difficult)

 

More information is provided below.

 

Mathletics

Every day, the children should log into Mathletics where they can complete the tasks set by their teacher.

 

Times Table Rock Stars

Every day, the children will log into TTRS to improve their recall of the times tables set by their teacher.

 

Mental Maths Activities

Every day the children will be expected to work on their mental maths skills. This could be in the form of a game or a written activity. The teacher will set the daily mental maths challenges for the children to complete.

 

Numeracy Activities

Each week the main numeracy lesson will focus on either number, shape, measures or handling data. There may be a video clip or PowerPoint presentation to watch prior to completing the activity. The children will then complete the tasks set in either Step 1 (easiest), Step 2 OR Step 3 (most difficult) depending on which is the appropriate level of difficulty for your child. We don't want children to struggle with work they are finding too hard.

 

The worksheets can be downloaded to answer on or just be viewed online with written work completed in an exercise book or page. Answers will be provided in the Teaching Notes where possible.

 

Other Activities

Each week you will be provided with 5 activities that cover other aspects of the curriculum including WAU, Art, Music, Religious Education and PDMU. We suggest that you chose one activity to complete each day. Each week there will be two WAU activities linking to our topic “Ancient Egypt” and three activities from the other subjects. Additional activities can be found on your topic grid that you received with your home learning pack.

 

*Resources for PE can be found on the main home learning section of the school website; we would encourage you to ensure your child is engaging in physical activity each day. We thoroughly recommend using Joe Wick’s daily PE lesson which can be watched on YouTube.

 

We hope you enjoy completing the P5 activities with your child. If you have any problems, please feel free to contact Mrs Wilson (gwilson552@c2kni.net)
