Welcome to the Year 5 ‘Coronavirus’ page, whether you are a parent of a current Year 5, or a Year 4 one. Here is where you will find the transition documents ahead of September.
If your child has borrowed a book from my ‘little library’, can I please ask that it is returned at the earliest opportunity, please.
Okay, here is my Powerpoint which repeats the slides from the class tour video, so that you can look at them a little more leisurely, should you choose to, and tells you a little bit about me: Welcome to Raven Class and to Year 5
The link to the class video is here: https://youtu.be/d9psEBjy280
Here are the transition materials that we have been asked to share with you: All about me short hair silhouette, All about me long hair silhouette, All about me – Mr Brown’s example and All about me – Mrs Sydney’s example
As you can see from the completed examples, the style of how you complete your ‘head’ does not matter, as long as what you include is ‘all about you’. You will also see that I messed up my first attempt and then had to cut out what I had done and superimpose it onto a new head. I didn’t have any glue at home so it’s not my best work but is just meant as an example so that you could see a different style. I’ve given you the silhouettes that Mr Brown shared but found that when I printed out the one with long hair, it came out very grey so you might want to try to either trace it onto a fresh sheet (which is what I did), draw one freehand or search for one that suits you better online. If you are unable to complete this to bring in over the summer, please do not worry – I will ensure that your child has the opportunity to complete one when we return in September.
I know this has been on here for the past few weeks but I am leaving this activity from the lovely people at Toppsta who are again promoting reading for pleasure over the summer with a 30 days of reading and ‘reading bingo’ activity which are included here. Toppsta Reading Pack There are prizes of Smyths Toys vouchers on offer again with which to incentivise your child.
The Norfolk Music Hub are offering some free online workshops over the summer. If you’re interested, the link you need is here: https://gbr01.safelinks.protection.outlook.com/?url=https%3A%2F%2Fwww.norfolkmusichub.org.uk%2Fsite%2Fsummer-school-workshops%2F&data=01%7C01%7Cj.sydney%40obps.set.education%7C34c1e1ca97134a84294708d8231e9614%7Ce149e10c3d5e48d5be320cec1b9d148b%7C0&sdata=g0JWodAqqU6jrEsNz0Ddu0r4RsY2%2FrwZht74xdD7OaM%3D&reserved=0
I have been asked to share this link with you: https://www.thinkuknow.co.uk/parents/Support-tools/presentations-for-parents/ Think U Know is the name for the set of resources produced by the National Crime Agency / CEOP to help keep children safe while online. I don’t know if they will be producing new material over the summer break but am leaving it here because of its importance.
If your child is a member of the Norfolk Library Service, they may well have taken part in the Summer Reading Challenge in previous years. This year, it is all online so your child can still take part. If you’re not already a member, it’s free to join up and doing so will allow you to access lots of ebooks and magazines free of charge. You can sign up here: https://www.norfolk.gov.uk/libraries-local-history-and-archives/libraries/your-library-account/join-the-library
The reading challenge is open to all here: https://summerreadingchallenge.org.uk/
We have access to ‘Scholastic Reading Pro’ until the end of August, so if your child is enjoying the books available there, they will be able to continue until then. The site can be accessed here: https://educator-slz03.scholasticlearningzone.com/slz-portal/#/login3/GBR42CR
I am hoping that your child is continuing to read for pleasure. If you are lucky enough to be able to buy new books but are unsure as to what to buy, I suggest you check out this list on the brilliant ‘Books for Topics’ website. https://www.booksfortopics.com/year-5 They also lists some great online ‘storytimes’ here: https://www.booksfortopics.com/storytime-online
As we enter our final couple of days, I would like to thank you all for the enormous effort you have put in to support your child’s learning. Thank you also for bearing with me when I have made mistakes, been unclear or forgotten to include anything. I am hoping that you all have a restful and happy summer holiday ahead of the autumn term.
I hope to see you all soon, and hope you stay well.
