Weekly Planning and Resources For Remote Learning - Pupils Self-Isolating
To access the resources and plans for remote learning when self-isolating, please visit our class' Google Classroom page using the link Y5- Sea Turtle (google.com) and the login provided by our school office (please call the office if you need your login or are experiencing any technical difficulties). In the stream on Google Classroom you will find a link to the weekly planning overview in the 'Classwork' tab plus any additional resources needed to complete the work. This will be very similar to the remote learning during the recent lockdown period, just without the live or recorded lessons (Unless the whole class is self-isolating, when live lessons will resume).Work can be submitted for marking via the 'upcoming' box link on the main Google Classroom screen.
Year Five - Sea Turtle
Welcome to the Year 5 Class!
Our class name for this academic year is ‘Sea Turtle’.
Sea Turtles are among the oldest creatures on earth, dating back over 200 years. This means they once roamed the earth with dinosaurs! Not only that, they play a crucial role in helping support our planet's ecosystems. They do this by: maintaining sea grass habitats, providing food for fish, enriching nesting beaches and providing habitats for over 100 different species, all while maintaining balance of the ocean floor ecosystems. However, The World Conservation Union has identified five major hazards to sea turtles which has resulted in their classification as an 'endangered' species. Such hazards include: fisheries, trapping and capturing these animals as well as taking away their food; direct take, sea turtles and their eggs are killed by people all over the world for food and products; pollution, plastics and other debris harm and kill sea turtles through entanglement; and climate change, the increase in frequency of extreme weather events means loss of nesting beaches and access to food sources.
Your Year 5 teacher is Miss Murphy and Miss Ellison is our class teaching assistant.
Year 5 is an important year as many final-year objectives are introduced before next year’s SATs. Although the curriculum does increase in complexity, we have placed a key focus on establishing a learning environment centred around your child’s wellbeing. The great variety of topics that the children study will excite and inspire them ensuring Year 5 to be one of the most exciting years yet!
From sculpting our own Anglo-Saxon artefacts to the heights of space, from designing and making suitable clothing for an Arctic explorer to competing in the Great Junior Bread Off; there’s sure to be something to interest your child.
We have an exciting year ahead of us. The children are going to be learning and applying a range of new skills through our English, Maths and Science lessons embedded in our Inquiry-based curriculum – for more subject-specific information please see our Curriculum Page.
The children will start each day with handwriting or a basic skills activity, followed by Reading Mastery sessions, Maths and English lessons each morning. Science, History, Geography, Computing, P4C and many more subjects will be taught in the afternoon.
