Active May!

Active May! 1

Good Morning Inspirations!


I hope that you all had a lovely weekend. There's only this week left before it's half term!


Today's tasks: Maths, Literacy, Spellings, Topic (Art)

I have already put literacy support on for the entire week so that you can access what you need at any time to complete this week's end goal of writing a short suspense/mystery story. 


EXTRA MATHS folder - in addition to the activities within the 'extra maths' folder I have included something called Year 5 maths non-negotiables, where you can look through what the aim is for you to be as confident as possible with before entering Year 6.


Please take a look in the class pages section where you'll notice a new page called 'School Song'. We'd love for as many of you as possible to get involved with a lovely music task!


Remember in the Maths folder, that I have added an 'Extra Maths' folder with some additional activities that you are welcome to try. I'd love to hear who is challenging themselves to do these and how you're getting on. I will keep adding support videos and further activities every week!


It's lovely to see some of the other things that you're up to as well! Some of you are baking, reading, taking part in out of school online classes, building amazing things out of lego, playing badminton...the list goes on! You're all amazing!


Also remember, you still have TTRockstars (and even NumBots) to access, Reading Eggs and Spellodrome.


Have a super day and a lovely weekend


Love Mrs McMahon xXx


Good Morning Inspirations!

Hello Inspirations!


I hope that you've all had a lovely Easter weekend?! 


I've been making lots of fun videos with my family, even though we're all in separate houses, to sort of keep us all together!!

So, I thought that we could create one as a class!! You do not have to take part of course, but I thought it would be nice for us to do and to share with each other.


If you could film yourself (siblings/family/pets can be included!) either having fun dancing, playing, holding a rainbow picture to support the NHS etc, doing keepy ups, or anything at all that celebrates you having fun for no longer than about 10 seconds, I will edit and compile the videos to our class song, 'We're All in this Together' which I think is really appropriate at the moment!  


Have fun doing this little challenge! I can't wait to see your video clips!!


Love Mrs McMahon xXx

Be sure to check out today's daily challenge!

 Please take this time to play and have fun, perhaps do something that you don't usually get the chance to do! Why not try to learn something new?! 


Above all, stay safe, stay home and of course...keep smiling!!!


An example of an email that you might send to me could look a little like this:


Hi Mrs McMahon,


I started the day with Joe Wicks this morning which was tiring but good fun! I've sent you a picture! I enjoyed the literacy task and think that I came up with some good ideas. It was good to recap some of the maths as I'd forgotten how to do the translation questions. I think I still need a bit more practice! Science was fun! I didn't realise how many different lifecycles there were! I've been on TTRockstars and have read 15 pages of 'The Astounding Broccoli Boy' (I can't believe the main character has actually turned green!)


Speak to you soon
