Good Morning you awesome Year 5's and welcome to the Summer Term!! I hope you all have had the most wonderful Easter with your families; I miss you all so much and I cannot wait to have you all being far too loud in the classroom. I cannot wait to start Joe Wicks again as I seem to have consumed too many Easter Eggs!  In the meantime, I have attached a video of some of the challenges Olly and I have been up to over the Easter period - I would love to hear what each and every one of you have been up to! 

 

I've also attached the some work for this week. In Maths, we are beginning our fractions work, in Geography, Countries in the world (I shall be setting a Country flag competition at the end of the topic so get revising) and in  Science, life cycles of plants and animals. 

 

Try your best in everything and let me know how you are feeling and what you have been doing;  Feel free to challenge me to something that you have done over the Easter Holidays!

Happy Easter

 

To dear Year 5,

 

I wanted to wish you all the most wonderful Easter with your families. I have been so proud of hearing what you have been up to, what new skills you have learned and the funny stories you have sent me. As a reward, there is no homework for the 2 week period - Wahoo!

 

Online learning will be back on Monday 20th April 2020 and I cannot wait to hear what you have all been doing. Until then, look after yourselves and each other - love Miss Kelly x

 

I spoke with Fr David and Fr Andrew today and they said that they would LOVE for you to join in online to watch the Mass at 10am on Friday on https://www.ourladynewsouthgate.org.uk/who-we-are/our-church  and would welcome any feedback on newsouthgate@rcdow.org.uk. Maybe drop them a note to tell them what class you are in and what you have been up to or feel free to ask them a question as they are also missing seeing everyone and were very proud of you all when I spoke with them.

 

I look forward to hearing what you have been up to today and well done - almost the Easter holidays!

 

Daily Shout Out Day 2.04.20

 

Good evening Year 5!

 

Wow, I have been following some of the tweets on @ololn11 and I am very impressed with the drawings that Olaf and Bruno have drawn!  I have been at school today - we made home made quoits out of empty toilet rolls; have you created any games whilst you have been at home?

 

Janae, I  particularly loved your Cinquain on kites yes Olivia, I am so glad that the cake was lovely but also a little jealous that I didn't get to taste it; I am also very impressed that you are using your knowledge of fractions to decipher the 1/3 of Joe Wicks participants wink Fabio, I am very happy that you and Dante are enjoying your ice creams, what flavour did you eat?

 

Well done to all of you that have logged onto TT RockStars and helped our class. 

 

Come on Year 5 - let's see if we can move up the leader board tomorrow - I know how amazing you are at your times tables!!

We need a big push now - house points for those who help the class move up on the leader board! cheeky

 Good Evening Year 5!!

How has your day been? I am pumped about the TTRS competition and I know you will all rise to the challenge and do your very best to regain our crown as the best class at times tables. I have had the BEST messages today, I'm not sure if Harry's account has been hacked or whether he has finally seen sense but he sent me a message saying Liverpool were the best - thank you Harry, have a couple of HP's for having excellent taste! I have lots of shout outs today as the messages I received today were fantastic!

 

  • Bruno - Olly is following a 30min You Tube boxing video everyday and learning to hit the punch bag more and the air less! I'm so delighted that you are practising so much with your football skills; I cannot wait to see you play next.
  • Lianna - Wow! You have learned to say 'Hello' in  5 different languages - Can anyone try this challenge? I'm also very impressed the Evangelou family have been doing T25; this is very very hard!
  • Sienna - Well done for cooking for the family and 
  • Alexi and Joseph - thank you for your concern on Liverpool and the Premier League - the trophy is still heading to Anfield
  • Louisa - Happy Birthday for 1st April - I wish you and Natalie the best of days
  • Olivia - your baking seems to be going amazingly well! I have taken your guidance and Olly and I made banana bread AND Lemon drizzle cake today - thank you for the inspiration!

Thinking of you all and very proud that you are doing wonderful things for yourselves and your family and learning new things!

Daily Shout Out Day 30.03.20

 

Good Evening Year 5!!

 

I hope you all had a wonderful weekend. Great news here, Olly and I both managed to connect with the punch bag this weekend , so it shows that with lots of practice in anything you do does work! We have also been on google 3D images and we found a penguin in our house surprise

 

I am so impressed with, not only the dedication to your work but also the fun and interesting messages you have sent me. I have loved reading every single one!  I am super impressed with Catriona's Granny and her foray into  jazzy technology - congratulations Granny Mitchell! Amelia, in answer to your question of Meatballs; Lemon Drizzle cake or Apple Berry Crumble, it's a very hard choice but I am going to go with the crumble yes.  Olaf, I agree, the guy in the video was funny! Luca Boffa, you win the internet today with your pillow hugging and 6 Purple Mash potatoes! 

 

Exciting news is coming about a TT Rockstars challenge that begins on Tuesday 31//03/20 - keep checking!

Year 5, your teacher needs you!

Daily Shout Out Day 4 26.03.20

Good evening Year 5!

I hope you all have had an awesome day? Have you thought about learning a new skill? Oliver and I have decided to learn a new skill.... boxing; As my garden fence will testify to, we haven't done too well today in connecting with the boxing bag frown. However, it is only day 1 and we shall overcome!

 

I have been following all of the excellent work and activities that have been posted on the school twitter account, especially footage of the wonderful applause and appreciation for all of the utterly amazing people who are helping us so much at this moment. It makes me unbelievably happy that you are all part of, not just a wonderful school community but also the wider community and you should be incredibly proud of your contribution; continue to show kindness every day.

 

For parents, we have a free resource that you might find helpful which you can gain unlimited access to  via this link:

https://sooperbooks.com/bedtime-stories/

 

As always, I am cheered by your wonderful messages but I would especially love to mention both Ella and Olivia's message to me which have kept me in fits of laughter.  Olivia, I hope you are looking after Mum and Dad after the Joe Wicks workouts and not tormenting Tristan too much and Ella, your concern for my lack of food intake cannot be underestimated; I fear food fatigue made me miss many a shot at the boxing bag today. I shall ensure the fruit and vegetables are in abundance tomorrow!

 

Have the most wonderful Friday . YNWA! heart

 

Daily Shout Out Day 3 25.03.20

 

Good evening Year 5!

 

I hope you have all had a wonderful day today and managed to enjoy the sunshine! I have been experiencing some withdrawal symptoms. I miss you all very much, especially seeing you all and hearing your stories. However, I love reading your messages that you have sent and hope that you have received mine back. 

 

I was at school today and I have to let you all know how amazing Joseph 'Deacon of Light' was today with the younger children on the Easter Egg Hunt as the eggs he found he left for the younger children to find. I am very proud of him as I am of all of you for being so wonderfully engaged with what you have all been doing this week. Bruno's poem about Toasties made me feel very hungry as did Fabio's poem about his Mum's pie; although I may need to drink water whilst eating it! Amelia also told me how much fun she was having with Adam on the trampoline and Keeva told me how much she loves spending time with Fallon and her homework!

 

Carry on being the best you can be and I look forward to speaking to you tomorrow!  Take Care, Miss Kelly

Daily Shout Out Day 2  24.03.20

 

Good Evening Year 5! 

 

I hope you are all keeping well. Thank you for your messages on Purple Mash which have kept me informed of all you have been up to and kept me entertained (mostly, Alexi laugh). Your performance poems that you have written are just amazing - we have future Poet Laureates! I hope you are all finding lots of things to keep you busy. House Points have been allocated as promised.

 

Think about a way you might be able to help your parents around the house tomorrow or learn a new skill; I would love to hear what you have done! Have a wonderful Wednesday! Miss Kelly angel

Daily Shout Out - Day 1  23.03.20

 

Good evening Year 5 pupils and parents!

I've seen how many of you have been working hard today - well done! Some of your messages have been wonderful and I am happy that you are all in good spirits! House Points have been awarded as promised for the completed work and messages! Take care, Miss Kelly

Year 5 !

 

Year 5 - where are you? I miss you already! I hope you are all spending as much quality time as possible with your family during this time and remembering how important it is to look after one another. 

 

I understand that it must be very important for you all to keep in touch with each other and that X Boxes / Play Stations / PCs / Switches are all a way to do this, HOWEVER, your education and your parent's sanity is of the utmost importance so please please ensure that you are keeping up with your school work, in particular reading and practising your times tables!

 

I have attached a schedule for the next week as will as the links  ( under Useful Links) to complete  work. I will ask you you to particularly complete the Purple Mash / Mymaths activities so that we can keep in touch. It would be so great to read your messages and I promise that I will leave you a message back ( via voice not or message - I would prefer not to receive the anti -Liverpool ones). 

 

I will update the website everyday and give a special mention to the 2 children who send me the most interesting Purple Mash messages and also award 1 HP to those who complete very piece of work and 2HP each for those who give me the most interesting stories.

 

if you have any issues with the home learning or have any questions, please do let the office know and I will call you back, 

I hope that you and your families are safe and looking after each other best you can at this time. Please do check in everyday so that our children are up to date with everything and each other.
