Home learning (13.7.20)

Dear Year 5,

We made it! It is the last week of term before we finish for the summer holidays. You have worked so hard over the last few months and we are very proud of you. Thank you for sending us some of your work last week. We will be providing feedback to all those children who sent us newspaper reports. Your smoothie adverts were AMAZING! We were very impressed with your persuasive language, not to mention your computer skills.

For the last week of home learning, we felt it would be fun to do something different in English. You will be introduced to Macbeth by William Shakespeare and complete some activities based on the first few scenes. If you would like to find out what happens to Macbeth and his wife, Lady Macbeth, perhaps you will read the rest of the story during the holidays.

That makes it even, 1 -1 .    So in Year 6, let's see who wins the next battle!!

WELL DONE GIRLS FOR MAKING SUCH A GREAT COMEBACK.


Mrs Fisher

Dear Year 5,

As you know, Mrs Fisher is retiring at the end of this term. She has worked in our school for many years and helped lots of children. As a school, we are making her a card filled with memories of our times with Mrs Fisher. If you have a particular memory of Mrs Fisher that we could include in the card, please could you send us an e-mail telling us about it (year5@stdominic.herts.sch.uk).

Thank you Year 5,

Mrs Luckhurst and Mrs Ward-Tsang

We hope you have had a good weekend. Mrs Ward-Tsang and I loved hearing about the bean smoothies you made last week and we are also enjoying reading your biographies. If you haven't sent us your biography yet, please do so and we will provide you with some feedback on your writing.

Dear Year 5,

It was so lovely to see most of you last week in school. We thoroughly enjoyed being with you and hearing about some of the things that have been keeping you busy while you've been at home.




Thank you for working so hard last week. Your balanced arguments were well written with lots of adverbs of possibility included. We also loved receiving your Vincent Van Gogh inspired paintings...

Home learning week 11 (22.6.20)

Hello Year 5!

We hope you have had a good weekend and a rest after all your hard work last week. We have been really pleased with the writing we have seen - a big thank you to those of you who sent us their work. Lots of you are following the success criteria and making sure you include the features discussed in the lessons in your own writing. The Golden Moment for last week goes to...Josh! Josh made sure he used a wide, descriptive vocabualary in his story ending, which is something we particularly asked you to focus on. I spotted lots of well chosen adverbs in his writing which really helped me to picture how his characters were behaving. Josh also punctuated his speech correctly. Well done 😀
