In the case of a school closure due to coronavirus, please see the weekly timetable below. A new timetable for each week will be available on the Monday morning from 9am. Answers for the previous week will also be posted on the following Monday. Please mark your child's work and try to guide them with their corrections.

 

w/c 13th July 

 

Hello year 5!!

 

Well, here it is - our last week in Year 5!! What a year it has been. Despite the situation, I am pleased to say how proud Miss Ward and myself have been with your commitment to learn, your resilient attitude to just keep going and the way that you have raised each others spirits when you felt down. We are incredibly proud to have been your teachers this year and I look forward to taking you into year 6 with the same learning attitude - a real desire to achieve and do well.

 

I really hope that you can all make it to our socially distanced picnic on Tuesday, 14th July. Hopefully the weather will stay nice for us as it will give us all a chance to see each other again before the summer holidays. Over the holidays, we hope that you have a well deserved rest and come back excited and ready to learn with our new topics.

 

Below is the home learning for the week commencing 13th July. Try your best with the work and make sure that if you do focus upon anything, it is reading that is given a priority. You will find that even just 15 minutes a day will help you greatly in Year 6!

 

Alongside the Accelerated reader, and the Oxford Owl reading, we also have the opportunity to access a free site for reading based around the accelerated reader programme. It is on http://readon.myon.co.uk/ and it is a fantastic resource which allows access to over 7,000 books! There are books to suit all tastes and, many are linked to quizzes! The added bonus is that it can read the book to you and, if you hover over unfamiliar words, it will define them too! Have a try and get those word counts up again - remember, it is not free for long!! I will be looking at giving prizes to those making real efforts in their reading.

 

As usual, please send any examples of work to Miss Milner on her email vmilner@olsa.lancs.sch.uk who will be available between 9am-3:30pm to answer any queries you may have in regards to the home learning.  Obviously, I will continue to check my emails after school hours so if you need me, please do not hesitate to get in touch - I would still like to hear from you!

 

Keep smiling and stay positive!!!

 

Miss Fleming and Miss Ward

PSHE/Computing:

As we will be finishing school soon, many children will be accessing social media and technology more often. I have set a quiz on purple mash just to test what you have been taught so far through school in regards to internet safety. Take this quiz to see how internet safe you really are. Maybe you could test your parents too?

 

Once you have completed the quiz, I would like you to create a quiz about staying safe on the internet - think about the different platforms you can go on and how to stay safe thinking of SMART. Try to offer multiple choice options to test their knowledge. Good luck!

RE

In RE, when we return in September, we will again focus upon how we can become better people to help those around us. We will focus upon our 5 W's within class and ways in which we can show these within our own school community.

 

As you will be the eldest in the school, and be great role models, I would like you to create a poster to explain to the younger children what the 5 W's are and give them examples of how they can demonstrate them within school.

 

Make your poster bright, informative and suitable for the audience. Send an image to Miss Milner so we can attach it to the website.

Welcome to Inspire Year 5

 

Welcome to Inspire class! We are a class of twenty-three children who are supported in our learning by our teachers Miss Fleming and Miss Ward.

 

Now we are in Year 5, we have lots of responsibilities around the school including being good role models for each other and the younger children; and taking on roles in the School Council, Sports Leaders, Literacy Leaders and GIFT Team.

 

As well as learning all kinds of information and skills, we have lots of fun too! During the year, we will be finding out all about the Vikings and Saxons; learning about the environment in our ‘Go Green’ topic; discovering what life was like for children in Victorian times; studying the geography of the USA; examining evidence in our detective fiction ‘Baker Street’ topic and learning about Earth and Space. As always, there will be plenty of opportunity to delve into the topics to gain a greater understanding of how the world works in a creative and inspiring way.

 

All this, in addition to preparing for our Christmas production, developing our social and teamwork skills at Robinwood and taking part in Bikeability! It is set to be an action packed year of learning!

There will be opportunities for our families to join us for assemblies and topic afternoons during the year.  We look forward to showing you how we develop and progress as we work hard in our learning.

Design Technology Day 

 

 

 

Topic Afternoon

On Thursday, 3rd October, parents and carers of children in year 5 were invited into our History afternoon to explore their current topic, Vikings and Saxons. The children were asked to create their own Viking shield made from cardboard, create their own design and paint it in their own Viking colours. The children were very creative in their designs and had a lot of fun making them with their families. Thank you once again to all who came to support, your help was very much appreciated!

Whitworth Library Visit

Listening to a Victorian story

Chester Zoo Trip to study the Jaguar

For our British Values research, Year 5 participated in a debate at the Riverside for UK Parliament Week. The topic for discussion was how to improve the environment in Whitworth. The children had to research ways to make Whitworth an environmentally friendly place and made suggestions like having a community garden in which to grow locally produced fruit and vegetables; reducing plastic  through initiatives with local shops; planting further trees within the local area for cleaner air and promoting the use of walk to work for all local residents. The ideas were welcomed by the local councillors and the children represented the school confidently and with real respect.

Topic Afternoon - The Victorians

 

The parents and carers of children in Inspire class were invited into school to participate in a book and a bacon sandwich event. The aim of the afternoon was to provide parents and carers with an insight into what their children were learning in class; what their current class text was about and to create a piece of art that represented the era we were currently studying. (They also got a bacon sandwich to keep them going for the afternoon!)The children and adults created some excellent representations of the book Street Child and it even got competitive with their art work!! It was lovely to see adults and children sharing a book together and explaining their own learning on such an important era in our British History. Thank you to all who made it.

Whitworth Historical Museum Visit

 

On Wednesday, 5th February 2020, Inspire class went on a visit to the Whitworth Historical Museum to learn more about the Victorian era within Whitworth. The aim of the trip was to inform the children of how Whitworth was an Industry village with transport and employment links that are significantly different to how we live today. Whilst at the museum, the children explored clog making, learned how people dressed back in Victorian Whitworth, discovered what jobs both male and female children would perform and explored the way of life people had then in comparison to the technology that exists today. The children had a great time dressing up and they asked lots of really deep questions, which impressed the volunteers at the museum.
