Robins - Year 5 Class
Summer Half Term 1 - Home Learning
Welcome back Robins Class !
I hope that you have been enjoying the sunshine that we have been having recently - and had a good Easter.
The final two weeks of our spring term were a real time of change for us all, and we continue in these very unusual times to try and practise our skills at home.
Each morning there will be a new code for LBQ activities and an English document that will lead you through some really interesting reading and writing activities. I would really like you to do these every day.
After you have done these, I suggest that you decide on a project based activity to do in the afternoon. It may be that you want to work on the Geography project we have set up for you, or RE or Art. It might be that you are doing some gardening, or baking, or building a lego creation - all these activities need different skills and they are all good for using your brain !
Don't forget to keep active as well as this will help you to maintain concentration and focus - a bit like break time when we are in school.
We are still in a times table rockstar competition with Swifts class (and we are winning !!) - it would be fantastic if you spent 15 - 30 minutes on this every day to make sure we keep in the lead !
It has been lovely to see your photos and work on email and twitter - so please keep sending me these.
Keep working hard, and I hope that I see you all as soon as it is safe for us to meet again.
Stay safe and take care,
Robins Class - Thank you Posters for the NHS
Thank you to those of you who have sent me a picture of your NHS poster or Lego creation - keep them coming as it would be great to get as many of you on here as possible !
VE Day Decorations
Thank you for sending photographs of your fabulous VE day decorations - if anybody else has VE day photos, I am sure we would all like to see them !
Every day there will be a code here for you to use when you log into LBQ.
When you input your name - please simply put your first name followed by the initial of your last name, for example 'Gary B'
The code will last from 9am in the morning until late at night - this is to make sure everyone has chance to have a go.
Try your best !
The code for the 22nd of May is : ukp
This is what we will be doing on LBQ over the half term...
Summer activities for you to try....
Have a go at these after you have done some Maths and English - you might be able to share your work with the rest of the class either virtually or in person !

It is lovely to see pictures of you all working hard - and I am sure you will enjoy seeing each other's faces during the school closure - so if you email your picture and let me know it's OK to put on our web page, I will post it on here.
Some of you have been sending excellent examples of work - if you would like to share anything you have done with the class, please email it to me and I will post on our web page.
