Exe - Y5

Monday 18th January, message from Mrs Roper

Hello Exe! 

It’s very strange not seeing you and I am missing you very much, but I’m so glad you are safe at home.  What fun things have you been up to?  For me, it's been a week of staying at home but I've been able to have lots of cuddles with my labradors.  They say hello, too!  I did see a kestrel sitting in the tree at the bottom of the garden and a very nosy pheasant has been coming up to the glass door and knocking on it with his beak!  I invited him in, but he wasn't very keen.  Probably for the best!

 

I am so excited that E-schools has now arrived and I am very much enjoying getting it ready for you – from next week that’ll be the main way that we communicate.  You’ll get your login over the next few days so you can get used to it.  I think you’ll love it.

 

This week, I’m putting all of your learning in the links below so you can find things easily.

In English, we are starting a 2-week block of learning about writing a letter to persuade or convince someone that we should or shouldn’t have a school uniform.  I’m looking forward to being persuaded!

 

In maths, we are going to continue the Statistics learning that you began with Mrs Jackson last term.  Lots of interesting finding out about line graphs and timetables.  There are 4 lessons (videos with Mr Bob and worksheets) plus an end of block mini assessment for you to have a go at.

 

Our mini-topic during each afternoon this week is Endangered Animals.  Some of you know lots about this topic and I hope you enjoy it!  I can't decide on my favourite endangered animal ... maybe orangutan?

 

Have a great week!  Contact me on our class email exe@sandford-school.devon.sch.uk or by E-Schools (when you have your login!).

 

Take care, Mrs Roper x
