Home Learning Singapore Class
THANK YOU SINGAPORE CLASS FOR BEING AMAZING!
I wanted to say a few words to end the year and say goodbye. Thank you for being a fantastic class! I will miss teaching you!
Have an incredible fun filled summer holiday!
Dear Parents and Carers of Year 5,
Welcome to the FINAL week of the Summer Term! I am so proud of Singapore Class and all the wonderful home-learning they have been doing and how you all have worked so hard together during these uncertain times! Thank you for being SUPERSTARS! As it is the final week of term, I will be setting more creative, fun-based activities for your child to do to help them wind down to the summer holidays. Please see each section for details of the activities. The activity set for English this week is for your child to have time to write their letter to their new teacher so they can tell Mrs Teakle all the important things about them. Please send them to Mrs Teakle at: firstname.lastname@example.org
I have loved teaching the pupils in Singapore Class and I am sad that I won't get to end the year with them in class. Thank you to all of you for continuing your child's education at home among all the other activities and work needing doing! You have been AMAZING, thank you! I want to say a goodbye to the pupils so I will be uploading information about this later on in the week.
Thank you to you and your child/children for their hard work each week to do their best! I hope you all have an AMAZING final week!
DO YOU WANT TO BE A PLAY LEADER IN YEAR 6?
Usually at this time of year Pete Gwynn would be working with some of the Year 5 pupils on training to be PALs (Play Active Leaders). Instead, he has sent us a pack that the Year 5 children can work on at home to try and develop their PALs skills, as pupils would normally be participating in this activity this half term to learn the important skills needed to be a Play Leader. This pack can be downloaded below along with the video which pupils can view to learn about what it is like being a Play Leader and what a Play Leader does. If you would like to be chosen to be a Play Leader in Year 6 please complete Activity 2 in the Play Leader's pack, writing your application letter addressed to Mr Ryan, Miss Squires and Mrs Teakle explaining why you want to be a Play Leader and why you would be good at it. Please send your application letters to email@example.com where we look forward to reading your applications ready to choose our Play Leaders for next year in Year 6.

Reading for Pleasure:
I would like pupils to continue to read for pleasure this week recording the book title, number of pages read and the author of the book. These details can be recorded in their Home Reading Diaries. If pupils cannot find their diary they can log this in the back of their Home Learning Book.
Pupils can choose books from home as well as from books set online on 'Reading Planet'. These can be fiction, non-fiction and poetry texts. The books can be in paper or online formats. Newspapers, graphic novels, research done online all count as well as poems and play scripts. First News Issue 14 is available below for pupils to download and read. A good test to check if a text is at the right level for your child is the five finger test:

All children’s audiobooks are available for free while schools are closed. Registration is not required.
Elevenses with the World of David Walliams
One free audio book reading is available to listen to every day. Registration is not required.

This week 'Reading Planet' is still available for pupils to use and read at least one of the books which I have assigned them and complete the quizzes linked to the book chosen. I have uploaded a range of fiction and non-fiction texts for you to choose from. You can read more than one book if you have time. Your child may want to read another book or text of their choice instead of using the Reading Planet program resources and that is fine too!
The 'Reading Planet' website can be accessed by clicking on the URL below.
There are also some super activities linked to the First News newspaper issues. Below I have uploaded the latest issue of First News, along with the Reading Comprehension Activities, Puzzles and Quizzes linked to the issue.

Activities and resources to support your child's wellbeing:
Below are some wellbeing resources for pupils to use including a story which can be read with your child. Reading it with your child may help them with their worries and it is attached below if you would like to read it to them. It is not advised that they read it on their own. I hope you and your child are keeping well and managing in these uncertain times. Please do get in contact when needed. I can be contacted at: email@example.com
Mindfulness Colouring Activities:
Everyone needs a calm moment now and again. Colouring is an activity that sparks the logical and creative aspects of the brain into action. If you think of colouring like a mental exercise, then you're keeping your brain active and improving coordination. These mindfulness colouring pages are a great way of focusing your mind on a relaxing task. Print out the colouring pages you wish to do for when you might need a quiet moment.
End of Term Activities:
Please complete the 'My Favourite Memories Task':
