Daily Learning Blog – Thursday, 16th July

Welcome back for your final home learning blog post of Year 5! It has been a less-than-normal ending to the year, and although we had a chance to see each other earlier this week, it wasn’t the usual send-off we all would have liked.

I want you all to know that I’m so proud of all the hard work you’ve done – both during normal school times, and throughout the home learning.  You have all made excellent progress, both in your school work, and as people.  Your excitement and enthusiasm towards learning is so impressive, and you always made lessons enjoyable for me to teach. 

I am very much looking forward to seeing you all back again in September, and although it appears that school won’t be back to the old normal (for a little while, at least), hopefully I’ll be able to share a conversation with each of you and hear about how your summers were.

Year 6 probably seems like a difficult challenge up ahead. Yes, there will be obstacles, and yes, there will be difficulties to overcome, but you are all capable and well prepared to face whatever challenge you encounter.  I look forward to seeing how amazing all of you do :)

That being said, here are your final home learning activities:


LO: Writing an end-of-year poem

  • Write a poem to celebrate the end of Year 5. Some things you might want to write about are:
    • Friends you made
    • Memories you have
    • Favourite topics
  • You  may write a rhyming poem or a free verse poem. Anything you like! Remember, free verse poems don’t need to rhyme – just use interesting, creative language.
  • Make sure your poem is at least 10 lines long.



LO: Converting units of time

  • Converting units of time is saying the same length of time differently – for example, 60 seconds and 1 minute are the same length of time, but using different units. Use the chart on the page to guide you.
  • Read the information, watch the videos, and complete activity sheets 1 and 2 in your home learning book.


LO: Designing a book cover for the year

  • Imagine this school year was a book. What would the title be? What would be on the cover?
  • I want you to design and draw a cover of a book that represents this school year.
  • Make sure to come up with a catchy title, and some interesting images to be on the front.
  • Be sure to make the book look interesting to read!

Well, that’s it for today, and that’s it for this academic year. Have an amazing, happy, healthy, and safe summer. Be kind to your friends and family, and look out for those in need. See you all back in September.

And of course, keep smiling :)
