Year 5 Home Learning - (Updated 5.4.20)
Hello everyone! It has been wonderful to see some of the amazing things you have been doing this week! From creative writing, to designing games and artwork - please keep up the fantastic effort and don't forget to share it with me. I have sent text messages to parents so that you can upload any work, photos or videos to your Seesaw Learning Journals and I will be able to give you feedback. I have added a letter to parents and a video on how to access this at the bottom of this page. I have been missing our whole class story time and think it is such a shame that we didn't get to finish our class book, so I will be adding a chapter a day to Seesaw for you to enjoy!
As Culcheth High School has already broken up for Easter, children who have siblings there have the option to start their Easter break this week for two weeks. I have updated the Home Learning activities for the next 3 weeks of activities below: two weeks of fun activities for you and the family to enjoy during your break and one week of work. It is important to keep up with daily reading throughout the Easter break. 
Don't forget that you can email me (lkelly@twissgreen.net) or message me via Seesaw if you need any help with the home learning.
Enjoy the holidays and take care!
Mrs Kelly 
Easter Break
I hope you all have a fun and relaxing Easter holidays. I have uploaded some activities and ideas to help with staying home during the break. I will keep adding to this as I come across new ideas, so keep checking in. 
Have fun, stay safe and keep smiling!

Reading Plus - I have been so impressed with the number of you that have been accessing one book each day. Well done and keep it up! If anyone has had any problems logging in please let me know. 
Daily Reading - I have set up a post on our class blog so that you can let me know which books you are reading and can recommend them to your friends. Reading raffle tokens will be awarded for any reviews. You could also photos of completed reading challenges on your Seesaw Learning journal.

PE - If you have been taking part in this week's Joe Wick's PE sessions, no doubt you are aching just I am! These are a great start to the day at 9am Monday to Friday. I know that some of you have also been using Cosmic Kids Yoga for mindfulness and relaxation. 
Computing - There are several '2 do' activities set on Purple Mash; I have really enjoyed marking these this week. 
Art - It is really important to take time to be creative and I have come across some fantastic resources that you can use. I know how much you all love art and working in your sketchbooks and so the link below should give you plenty to work on. I have also added a Zentangle Challenges to the resources section which looks like lots of fun. It would be lovely if you could add examples to the 'Y5 Art Gallery' on our class blog or to your Seesaw journal.
