5th Class Work

15th-26th June 2020

Hi 5th class,

I hope you’re all still doing well. Below is the work for the last two weeks. As we are heading into the summer holidays, there is less academic work set for the last two weeks of school. You have all put in such an amazing effort over the last few months. You should be very proud of yourselves. Please do not feel any pressure to get all the work done over the next two weeks. Just whatever you can! Enjoy!

All worksheets and power points are on this Padlet link: https://padlet.com/emmakaneteacher/o5friez0vfihsl35

You do not have to print anything off. Any sums or questions can be written into your copies.

Note for parents/guardians: report card collection for 5th class is on Thursday 18th June 2020 at 10am. Book lists for 6th class are on the website.

Note for students and parents: please do not post messages on the Padlet links.

Don’t forget to tune into the Home School Hub every day from (11am-12pm).

  • Please complete one page of handwriting in your workbook each day.

  • Reading: try out the Summer Reading Bingo chart on the Padlet link for ideas on different ways to read and different ideas for books. Read a book and write a book report using the template on the Padlet link. You do not have to print the page out. It can be used to structure your writing. Read the blurb at the back of your book and look at the front cover and write 1 copy page, predicting what you think will happen in the story.

For the last 3 weeks of school we are going to be recapping previous topics that we covered in the first term of 5th class to try and remember the different strategies. This week’s topic is averages.

This work can be completed over the last 2 weeks of school. Thank you to both my 5th class students and your parents and guardians for co-operating with me in your virtual learning experience. I know it has not been easy, but any effort that was made is so valuable to you. Have a wonderful summer and I look forward to seeing you all safe and sound when you return to Queen of Angels as sixth class students with lots of news to share with your classmates in September. Have a wonderful summer, and remember to stay safe!
