The final week project

 

Well done year 5 for making it to the end of term and the end of the year. It has been an unusual year that's for sure but one that I'm sure we have all learnt from. For this final week, I would like you to complete a project which will run throughout the week. It will involve you creating some activities for you to do over the holiday to keep you entertained. Each day I will put up a new activity in the timetable. As before simply click on the highlighted word to open the activity. You will not need to print anything out but you will need to basic supplies of paper and different coloured pens. It would be great if you could send in some pictures of the activities that you have created so that they can be shared with everyone else.

 

 

Monday 

(13th July) It's finally here - the last week of year 5 and I can't believe it has come around so fast. How did you get on creating your scrapbook today? I was in school setting up classrooms for next year and talking with all the other staff how school will be next term. I think it will be a bit different for you in terms of timings and how we do things to keep you all safe but at the end of the day one thing will remain the same - we will be in a fantastic environment learning amazing things. I do believe that later this week you find out who your year 6 teacher is (from roll please!) so watch this space.

Wednesday

(15th July) We are so nearly there. Only two more sleeps till the summer holidays. I have already started on my summer reading getting ready for year 6 and the list of books just seems to be growing but that's ok as I love a good read. Hopefully by now you should have all received your reports and also know who is teaching you next year (Me and Miss Haynes) so if you have any questions about next year feel free to contact me by email at year5@sirjohnlillie.lbhf.sch.uk  

 

Friday 

(17th July) Well its finally here  - the last day of term and we made it! Just want to say have a great summer and make sure you keep yourself and your family safe in these strange times. See you in September

Monday

(6th July) Two more weeks to go till the summer holidays! Have you made any plans to do anything over the summer?  One thing I will recommend to you is that you make sure you keep reading over the summer period. Here are some facts for you about people who read more which are apparently scientific:

 

1. Reading can help prevent Alzheimer’s.

2. Being a reader means you’re more likely to learn something new every day.

3. People who read are more likely to vote, exercise, and be more cultural.

4. Reading can be therapeutic.

5. Reading enhances your memory

6. Reading actually does make you seem more interesting

7. Reading helps to boost your analytical thinking.

8. Reading expands your vocabulary, so you’ll sound like a genius.

9. Fiction books increase your ability to empathize with others.

10. People who read are more likely to get ahead when it comes to their careers, and life in general.

 

And if these are not good enough reasons to read how about it's a far better was to spend your spare time rather than playing computer games or watching TV.

 

Tuesday

(7th July) Looking back in history there is always something significant that happened on that day in the past. Some are good; some are bad. But how about this one. On this day in 1928 the Chillicothe Baking Company of Chillicothe, Missouri (which is a state in America) sold sliced bread for the first time. Before this you had to slice your own bread - imagine that! Do you think that after this time people were able to use the phrase "the best thing since sliced bread"? 

Watch this video about how bread is made commercially. I just love watching these factory production type movies and always wonder who was the genius who made the machines to do this. Maybe one of you might become an engineer and make machines like this.

Wednesday

(8th July) Watching Who wants to be a millionaire tonight we saw a retired geography teacher win £250,000 pounds! Why? Because he was well-read. Say no more! (Imagine me doing a mike drop just here)

 

Thursday

(9th July) I just finished counting my chillis and on one plant alone I have 15! Wow! I'm very impressed with them. I'm hoping over the summer to have even more. I will be able to use some now and freeze some for later in the season. Yesterday I forgot to mention I read one of the scripts for your TV show talking about your 'creature' and it was brilliantly done and I could really imagine it being filmed with Endrit's voice over. (well done Endrit) I know we are nearly done with this year so if you can just hang in there a little bit longer and keep going with the home learning. We are nearly there!

 

Friday

(10th July) Yeaaaahhh it's Friday. I had lots of fun yesterday evening giving Pip a wash as she came back from her walk covered in mud. Suffice to say she is not keen on having a shower. I did a slow-motion movie of her! Have a good weekend campers and stay safe.

Monday 

(29th June) - Happy Monday campers. Can you believe that its 3 more weeks until the end of term! Thinking back to when I was much younger terms always seemed to go so slowly but recently things seem to be speeding up. It made me think of things that I liked when I was growing up and one of them was Sesame street so of course thanks to YouTube I had a walk down memory lane. Now you might think that Sesame street is just for little kids but I still think some of the things are pretty funny. So this week I'm going to share some great things from Sesame street that you can watch. The first one is Will I. Am  - click on the picture to open up the song.

 

Tuesday

(30th June) My Sesame street favourite today is a sing-along with Jason Mraz which I thought, considering how we have been isolating for so long, seems appropriate as it is all about wanting to go outdoors - I think you will recognise the tune he is singing to. But of course, if you are going outdoors make sure that you are being sensible. Stay safe peeps!

 

Wednesday

(1st July) This has to be one of my all-time favourite songs, sung by my favourite frog - Kermit, who before he joined the muppets was a part of Sesame street. Take it away Kermie my love..... (if you every watch The Muppets you will know who used to say that)

 

Thursday 

(2nd July) Were you wondering what fabulous Sesame street video I was going to put up today? Well so was I as there are so many great ones to choose from but this is one that really makes me laugh. I'm a bit old for someone to come and sing me to sleep but if they were going to I would really want a this celebrity lullaby. I think that the letter N is a great letter to fall asleep to.

 

Friday

(3rd July) It was hard choosing a video for today and I debated with myself as to which one I should choose but in the end I have chosen one of the amazing Actor Lupita Nyong'o. You may have seen her in some movies such as Star Wars. Now you may be wondering why, if she is a woman, I refer to her as an actor. So little fact for you - we use the term actor for both male and female actors; we do not use actress except when in the name of award, eg Oscar for best actress. In fact, Lupita won an Oscar for being the best-supporting actress in the movie "Seven years a slave". Then message in this video that Lupita and Elmo are sending out is how beautiful everyone's skin is no matter what it looks like which I think is a great message to think about over the weekend.

Monday

(22nd June) Well how excited do you think I am? My chilli plants have been busy growing and I now have several chillis on some of the plants with lots of flower on the others. Yipee! I don't know if you remember but I planted the chilli seeds at the start of lockdown so its been interesting watching them grow. The ones in my conservatory are doing much better than the ones I put outside because of the heat. In keeping with our science and cooking this week I'm trying to be extra healthy so I have been trying out some new recipes. This morning was a flourless banana pancake and I can report that it was lovely and I even put in some of the redcurrants from my garden! Have you made or tried anything new recently? Mrs T

Tuesday

(23rd June) Scorchio - that's a good description for the weather today and Pip has certainly felt the heat so was glad that her walk was delayed until this evening when it was a bit cooler. In our upper school team meeting today we were reminded to remind you to complete your end of year report comment and send in your 'class photo'. Thank you to those of you that have already done so but there are still quite a few of you who haven't. Just a reminder that the email to send them to is year5@sirjohnlillie.lbhf.sch.uk. Mrs T

 

Humpday

(24th June) Last night I spent the evening chasing a couple of huge moths, and I mean as large as dinner plate size moths, around my kitchen. To be honest I have used a bit of hyperbole here but they were pretty big! Which got me thinking - do you know how to tell a moth and a butterfly apart? One easy way is to watch them when they are resting. Moths rest with their wings out flat and butterflies rest with their wings folded up. If you don't believe me just check them out when you are next looking at them. Below is a picture of one of my favourite moths the Bombyx mori. That's its Latin name but you probably know it as the Silkworm moth, and before you roll your eyes no it isn't strange to have a favourite moth!  How cute is it with its hairy little body and legs.  We use the cocoons from their caterpillars to make the fabric silk. About 2,000 to 3,000 cocoons are required to make about 400g of silk. At least 30 million kilograms of raw silk are produced each year, requiring nearly 10 billion cocoons. That is a very large amount of caterpillars! But it also raises the question of who on earth first thought of making a fabric from a cocoon. Apparently, it was the Empress Hsi Ling Shi in 3,000 BC (2000 years before Tutankamun was born!). One day, when the empress was sipping tea under a mulberry tree, The caterpillars favourite food) a cocoon fell into her cup and began to unravel and the rest is history as they say! And one last thing before you go - sericulture is the farming of silkworms to produce silk. Impress your friends by slipping that into the conversation!

 

Thursday

(25th June) Whilst I was out having my walk today Bill called me up to make sure I put on suntan lotion as he heard that it was the highest UV rating today that we have had this year. A high UV rating means that the suns rays are really strong and you need to take care - today was an 8 on the UV scale. Take a look at the diagram below to see the scale and what you should do if it is a high number. As you can see it is always a good idea to wear suntan lotion even if the sun isn't that bright and a minimum of SPF 30+ (SPF stands for Sun Protection Factor). So take care out there in the sun campers. Mrs T

RE - Commitment

Monday

(15th June 2020) Well hello there! What a humid day it is today. I have been busy flitting between creating work for our school pages and checking out the wildlife in the garden. Update - the little eggs on the olive leaf I photographed last week hatched and I managed to get a picture of them before they all marched off to decimate some poor plant in my garden.

 

The day before they hatched
They've hatched - the eggs look like bubble wrap

Tuesday 

(16th June) Morning campers - lots of cumulus clouds forming in the sky. Hope that doesn't mean we are in for some rain as I want to get some planting done in my garden when I have finished my work. I have been reading a bit less than normal so today I am going to make sure I get in some quality reading time. I may even go for a walk after school and sit in the Brompton Cemetary, which is one of my favourite local places. It is also good for social distancing as there are not many people there. If you have run out of things to read, and of course the libraries are not open, then you might want to consider listening to a book instead. Check out this website for some free audio books that are really good.

Wednesday

(17th June) I had a good day today, how about you? I was lucky enough to see lots of people at school and I even got to 'speak' to Miss Harris (through WhatsApp). It was lovely to hear from her and she is doing well in Canada. I managed to go on my walk to Brompton Cemetary yesterday afternoon and below are a couple of photos. They are developing a storytelling area and I can't wait for it to be open to the public when social distancing ends. Don't forget to send on your pictures of yourself for the class photo (note it will be published on the school website) Well done Tom for being the first to get his picture in.

Friyay!

(19th June) So we have made it through another week - well done campers. Hope you have had fun with your learning. How are you all getting on with your times tables practise by the way? I'm hoping you are ALL now able to recall all of them up to 12x12! another reminder about the class photo - please read the information below. (Don't worry too much if you cant do it with a white background just do your best)

Week 9 -  8th June  - 12th June

Thank you to those who got in touch with me last week - it was so lovely to hear from you. I know working at home can be a real challenge for many reasons so well done for persevering and doing the best you can do.

(8th June) This weekend I spent some time doing some doodling for this art course I am doing - "The Art of Sketching: Transform Your Doodles into Art" as I love to doodle. To start with our task was to draw pens and pencils but you had to use a pen to do it with so can not erase anything if you make a mistake. I added some other bits of stationary that I had lying around. Drawing like this makes it quite hard but the more you practice the better you get (I hope!). Did you do anything exciting this weekend? Mrs T

 


 

Tuesday

(9th June) Did I mention I bought a ladybug lodge for my garden and all the ladybugs flew away? Well the good news is they are back today on the bamboo plant, hopefully munching away at the greenfly there. I also saw some immature ladybugs and ones that are just about to go through metamorphosis to become a mature ladybird (this really reminded me of our science topic). Then I found some very small caterpillars eating the leaves on the birch tree in our garden as well as some eggs on the underside of an olive tree leaf (Ill let you know what they are if I manage to see them hatching). And - yes there is more - Joel found a baby blackbird in the middle of the road so we picked it up and put it under a nearby bush so its parents could find it.

Wednesday

(10th June) Hump day once again which means it has been a long time now since you have been in school. By now you might be flagging a bit and feeling demotivated. One thing I don't want is any of you feeling stressed; by any of you I am including your family too. You are all doing a great job out there and I know you will be giving it your best effort. By doing your schoolwork the one person who benefits the most from this is you and not just you now - future you too. So if you are having one of those days when it's a real struggle just do what you can and know you have given it your best shot. If it all gets too much stop and do something like have a read of something you enjoy,  write down the alphabet and try to think of a word for each letter (plant, names, animals etc), do a search on the internet for interesting facts, learn to meditate, do some puzzles (any kind) or anything else that gives you a boost. We've got this year 5 - we will make it to the end!  Mrs T  

 

Thursday 

(11th June)  How has your week been so far? I have enjoyed looking at the work that some of you have been sending in and thank you to those of you who have sent in your report comments but there are still many of you that need to send them in so if you can do so that would be great.  Mrs T

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.

(1st June) Pinch and a punch for the first of the month - White rabbits! Do you know why we say this?

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

(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?

Mrs T

 

Friday

(5th June) Another week has just flown by or 'tempus fugit' as they say in Latin (time flys). I really love Latin and it's always good to have a few words and phrases up your sleeve. Here are a couple more that I like.

 

Ergo - therefore

De facto - of fact which you can say means in reality (you probably have heard this a lot in adverts!)

Acta non verba - deeds not words,  in other words do it don't just talk about it.

Carpe diem - seize the moment, take opportunities 

Non ducor duco  - I am not led - I lead

 

OK, that is probably enough for now. See if you can slip them into your conversation over the weekend.

Have a good weekend and stay safe.

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.

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

27.4.2020 - Happy Monday! Today I have been busy looking at some of the work that you have sent me so thanks to Gabby, Tom and Endrit for getting in touch. Would be great to hear from some more of you. Just to remind you the email address is year5@sirjohnlillie.lbhf.sch.uk

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.

Thanks again for those who sent an email to the year5@sirjohnlillie.lbhf.sch.uk email address - lets see if some more of you can get in touch!

Have a great day.

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
