Poems I love

Still image for this video
This is a poem by Wendy Cope which I really love called "On Waterloo Bridge". I have been playing with some apps and created an avatar which I can use to speak. OK so she looks nothing like me apart from the fact that we both wear glasses - but it was fun creating her!

 

Week 8 -  1st June  - 5th June

Welcome back year 5 to our home learning tasks. I hope your brains had a good break and you are ready to start with your learning again. This week is poetry week so we will be focusing on this all week. For your reading this week try and find some poems to read. There are many online sites you can look at and I will share some of my favourites with you.

Monday

(1st June) Pinch and a punch for the first of the month - White rabbits! Do you know why we say this? Well back when people believed in witches they would weaken them with salt so the 'pinch' means a pinch of salt and the punch was to punch the witch and banish them. But why say white rabbits so that no one can pinch and punch you? Well no one really knows for sure but if you have any interesting theories let me know.  Mrs T

Tuesday

(2nd June) So far this week Endrit snd Tom stand out as my home working champions who send their work in every day. Now I know that you are all doing something so I would love to hear about what you are doing and see what work you have been up to. Don't feel pressured to do everything but give it your best shot and do something everyday - even if it is something you have found yourselves. All you have to do is take a picture of your work and send it to year5@sirjohnlillie.lbhf.sch.uk    

I would really love to hear from all of you (and I mean both year 5 classes!) so please get in touch

Missing you Mrs T

 

 

Wednesday

(3rd June). I spoke to one of my oldest friends last night. She is married to a farmer and always keeps an eye on the weather so I was ready for the drop in temperature and the little drops of rain that Marcey warned me about. Apparently she thinks we will have some thunderstorms tomorrow so I will be keeping an eye on the clouds to see if she is correct. Do you read the weather reports to see what kind of a day it is going to be? I like checking it in different countries where my friends live so I can see what it is like for them.

 

Thursday

(4th June) What a lovely day I had. I did some research into colours (see task tomorrow) and read the new book that I received called "Blast Off" about the Apollo 11 trip to the moon. I have also become fascinated with the new Sky channels about history and nature and have been learning all sorts of fascinating facts. One thing I learnt was why my mother uses the phrase  "He is as rich as Crassus" when she refers to someone who has a lot of money. Marcus Licinius Crassus was once considered one of the richest men on Ancient Rome and he helped Julius Caeser form the Roman Empire.  Do you know any sayings that people use and where the saying comes from?

Happy Art!

Today is an art project to spread happiness. it is in two parts so if you don't finish it all you can complete it over half term

 

Monday

(18th May) - Happy Monday. I hope you had a nice weekend. This week we are moving on to multiplication and division so perfect time to practise those times tables. I have to confess that I have a maths app on my phones and Bill and I challenge each other on how fast we can work them out! What can I say other than we all have our secret pleasures!

 

 

Tuesday

(19th May) - Apologies that delay in the links being up this morning - technical glitch with my laptop but all is working now. I have had fun making my fictional character Melanie Matahari and hope you are enjoying following her around South America. Soon she will be off to North America (doing a jump over Central America). I wonder if she will see some of the things Paul Bunyan created?

 

Also thought you might want to try out the maths app I use. Remember if you have a phone and want to install an app or have it on an adults phone then you must ask permission first! It is called Maths tricks and as the name implies it does show you some tips for working things out like an easy way to multiply by 11.

  

 

 

Wednesday

(20th May) Happy scorching Wednesday. I had to get up early to water my garden as I didn't want any of them drying out.  For the next three days we are doing activities in the afternoon about kindness and being happy. I do hope you enjoy them and have a think about how you can make others happy. Think about does making other people happy also make you happy? If so what a win win thing that is!

 

Thursday

(21st May) Hello all, I hope you have had a productive week so far. I was very excited today as I received a new book about poetry by Michael Rosen. Nothing is as exciting as getting a new book as far as I'm concerned! 

 

 

A Special VE day

 

Today my brothers and I spoke to my mum who was 17 on VE day. She remembers clearly how special it was and how they celebrated with one of her neighbours setting off flares which she said they all thought were really exciting. She and her brother and sister all had a uniform and had helped in the war effort in different ways. Her brother was in the Navy and she and her sister helped with nursing and mending socks for people in the army.  They also had children stay at their house who were evacuated from London. Here are some pictures of them that we looked at today.

 

 

My mum is the one on the left (Joan), then it is her sister Dorathy and her brother Bill.

 

Dorathy, Bill and Joan - when Bill was on a break from his duties.

 

 

This is a picture of my father who was in the merchant navy during the war. He is the second man from the right with the paintbrush in his hand.

What age can my child start social networking?

 

As a parent it’s important you know that all social networking platforms (or social networking apps, if on a smartphone) have age limits.

Happy Monday to you. I hope you all had a good weekend. I spent time planting out more seedlings, taking Pip for a walk (socially distancing of course!) and even doing a quiz with people in Australia. Take a look at the MasterChef challenge as Gabriel has been busy cooking and I think I will be having a go at his recipe! This week it would be lovely to hear from some more of you to see how you are getting on. Let me know what you have been up to. Have you been managing to get home working tasks done? Have you been speaking to friends and family over things like zoom? Just to remind you the email address is year5@sirjohnlillie.lbhf.sch.uk and don't forget to add your name as your email address doesn't always match it!  Mrs T.

Brrrr another chilly day! What have you been up to today? I managed to have a 2-hour telephone conversation with Clare Vermooten this evening - I'm really missing seeing my friends but it's nice to be able to talk to them at least! How have you been keeping in touch with your friends and family? CAnt believe it is four weeks into summer term can you? Mrs T

 

13.5.2020

Still brrrr! I have been making small cloches for my seedlings out of the tops of bottles to keep them warm! If you are not sure what a cloche is then my challenge to you is to look it up and see if you can find out. Had a great staff meeting this morning and was lovely to see all the SJL staff even if its a tiny picture of them on zoom! Have a great humpday - missing you all. Mrs T

Happy Tuesday to you all. I've had a busy day working from home. As always lovely to hear from those of you who are contacting me through our email address year5@sirjohnlillie.lbhf.sch.uk  and even more please to see that you are doing the work that has been set - well done and keep up the hard work. This week we have a bank holiday on Friday which is unusual as they are usually on a Monday.  This year it is because we are celebrating VE day. You are all invited to help us out with this by helping us to create some virtual bunting. Click on the image on Wednesday afternoon for more information. The templates for this activity are below. Let's see how many of you can complete this activity and help us make a huge line of bunting.

 

6.5.2020

Happy hump day - or Wednesday as you may know it. Yesterday I learnt a fabulous new word  - stentorophonic.

How great is that - not very you say? Well let me prove you wrong! The word comes from two Greek words - Stentor and phonic. Well Stentor was involved in the Trojan wars and was actually the goddess Hera in disguise. Stentor had a voice as powerful as the voice of fifty men and encouraged the Greeks to fight. And I'm sure you recognise phonic as meaning  voice. So stentorophonic means loud-voiced or a loud noise. See - great word isn't it! Mrs T

Morning - and what a wet rainy day it is. Might seem a bit miserable but on the plus side it's good for the plants and being in on a wet day never seems as bad as being stuck in on a sunny day. Just wondering if you are able to open the links in the English to here they are again and all you have to do is click on them rather than try to either copy them or type into your browser.

I hope you had fun with the Geography today - I will post the next part of the adventure next week. How many of you managed to do the DT cooking on Tuesday. Tom was able to and in some pictures of his grilled cheese sandwich - look at the photos on the home learning page to see his creation.  Mrs T

 

30.4.2020

It's great that more and more of you are getting in touch through our year email address. today I heard from Lara, who has been busy baking and doing some lovely colouring projects to support the NHS and other key workers. Take a look at the photo page to see what she made.  Thank you to those of you who continue to send me in work and details of what you have been up to. Mrs T

 

1.5.2020

Well goodness me its Friday AND the first of May! Wow hasn't time flown by. Hasn't the weather been rainy these last few days, but at least it has saved me the effort of watering my garden so that's a good thing. I am just in the middle of planning where our arch-villain Melanie Matahari goes next. Seeing this picture of her gives me a little clue as to where she might be heading.

 

I created Melanie's pictures using https://charactercreator.org/ so if you want to have a go creating your own arch-villain then have a go and see what you can come up with. Have a good weekend and stay safe. Mrs T
