Tuesday 30th June - Today we'd like you to watch this video called 'Adrift'. This week's tasks will all be based on this video.
Today you have two options:
Option 1: Write a descriptive opening to the story, including metaphors, similes, personification, and lots of use of the senses.
Option 2: Create a storyboard of the story, using pictures and words.
Tuesday 23rd June (& Thurs 25th / Fri 26th) - This week you will be writing leaflets to advertise Camp Green Lake. How could you persuade parents to send their sons there?
Tuesday 16th June (& Thurs 18th / Fri 19th) - This week we would like you to write about the Yellow Spotted Lizards! But definitely do not go near one!
Friday 12th June - Today you will be writing your letter home to Mum, in role as Stanley. Think carefully about what he would say to convince Mum that he's having a great time!
Thursday 11th June - This week we would like you to write a letter in role as Stanley, just like he writes a letter home to his Mum. Today's task is to think up all the 'little white lies' that he might tell, to convince her that he is having a great time! Time to get creative!
Tuesday 9th June - Today you will be deciding whether you think Stanley is innocent or guilty of the crimes he has been accused of! You will need to consider the evidence that you have gathered so far from the book.
Thursday 4th June - Today you're going to be thinking about everything you know about Stanley Yelnats! See below for details.
Tuesday 2nd June - This week's work will be based on 'Holes' by Louis Sachar. We can't wait to read this with you! Today's task is all about making predictions, so have a look at the book cover(s), read the blurb, and listen to Chapter 1 (video on Youtube) and have a think about what YOU think this story is going to be all about!
Hello Year 5!
This is our writing and SPAG page where all work will be uploaded. This page will be updated every Tuesday and Thursday with work for you to be getting on with at home. The work will be named with which week the work should be completed starting with week 1... The work can be found at the bottom of the page.
It would be amazing if any work that you complete could be uploaded onto the Class Dojo portfolio which is linked to your individual accounts. Amazing work will be awarded house points and extra awesome work will be posted onto the class story! Remember- just because you are at home does not mean you can forget about your non-negotiables, we will still be looking at your spelling, handwriting and grammar!
Your class teacher will send daily reminders on the Class Dojo to check the website for work- If there is something that you do not understand or is slightly confusing, please send your class teacher a message and they will definitely help you out!
Year 5 team.
Non-negotiables and writing terminology
At the bottom of the page is an attachment to our Y5 non-negotiables as well as a list of writing terminologies that you will begin to see more regularly. I have attached my own examples of these as well has a handy video link to explain them to both parents and children. If, in the near future, there is a term that you are unsure of, please send your class teacher a message on Class Dojo so that we can add a definition on to the website. Keep up the good work!
Year 5 team.
