You can find an example of a timetable for supporting your child under the 'home learning timetables' tab. Remember, the most important thing is that your child is safe and healthy. So, you may follow this exactly or do your own thing entirely. Keep sending in those pictures and updates to Class Dojo - they're great!

This week we have VE Day on Friday. Have a look at the information power point and see if you can find some of you own information about it too.
Can you create a double page spread, a factfile, an information poster or a powerpoint of your own about VE Day?
Remember to read through what you have written to check it makes sense and check your punctuation too. Have you made the best word choices? You might be able to upskill it.
Perhaps you could write a diary entry as though you were there, 75 years ago when VE Day happened.
Here are some different writing tasks for you to have a go at. Lots of year 5 said they enjoyed getting stuck into these while home learning. Here are a selection for you to try.
Try to think about the punctuation you will need, try to include fronted adverbials and make good word choices. Check the descriptions of each task really carefully to see what you will need.
Challenge: when you complete your writing tasks see if you can use at least two words from the lists!
I appreciate how tricky it is to support your children with new concepts in Maths, so there are different options available. If you can, log onto White Rose for maths, it will guide you through the current Y5 maths topic which is decimals and if your child feels confident to watch the White Rose videos and have a go at the new topics in Maths, that's great.
This week you will need to work on adding and subtracting with decimals. Remember to check your place value because this is very important.
If you are unsure about going through these new maths skills, you can always log onto TT Rockstars to upskill your multiplication knowledge or log onto BBC Bitesize to try their online learning.
White Rose Maths Activities
If you can- log onto White Rose for maths and it will guide you through the current Y5 maths topic which is multiplying 2 digit numbers. There are videos and sheets to print for this or you could record your answers in your home learning books. Please remember to upload photographs of your work onto Class Dojo.
Our exciting Cornerstones topic for this term is Allotment!
For our new topic: Allotment, could you find out which plants we could grow for food? Which parts of those plants do we eat? Which seasons are best to grow them? Do they need special conditions to grow in? Are they available all year round?
VE day: This week we have VE Day! It is 75 years this year that VE Day happened. Lots of people will celebrate it at home this year.
Here are some VE day resources for you to find out more about it and some tasks for you to try.
Science: There are a selection of Science activities you can try at home. Remember to have a go at recording the results. One of the activities is to create ‘fireworks’ in a glass!

On Friday afternoons, you may want to celebrate all of your work completed in the week and mark the start of the weekend. Strictly's Oti Mabuse is offering dance classes, check out her videos! https://www.youtube.com/user/mosetsanagape/videos
For RE this week, have a look at the story: The Road to Emmaus.
When you have read it, have a go at retelling the story through a storyboard or through photographs of freeze frames, or by drawing a few scenes. Then add some speech bubbles and thought captions to really explain the story and how the people may have thought and felt.
RE key questions
Each day the teachers will be uploading a video of themselves saying hello or explaining one of the tasks for the day. These will be available here or on dojo.
