Year 5 - Falcon

Falcon Bubble Closure Section

 

Hello all, as we are unfortunately all going to be stuck at home for school I thought I would create a little section on the page to give as much information as I can. 

 

Please remember any questions will reach me on falcon@balliolschool.co.uk

 

Home learning will consist of three lessons a day (maths, English and a foundation subject) that will all be posted on Microsoft Teams. I will post all the resources needed for each lesson and may record a video lesson or post a video to go along with each that you can watch.

 

I will attach a blank 'Task Sheet' to each lesson that can be used for recording answers and uploading for me to see when complete. If you are unable to do this, please complete the work on paper.  

 

If you are struggling to access the learning on teams then please use the resources on this page to do home learning each day. You can always practise spellings, read, complete homework, complete MyMaths and play TTRockstars.

 

Lets do this

Mr Dalton

Year 5 Autumn Term 1 - Sow, Grow and Farm

Year 5 Autumn Term 2 - Stargazers

Welcome all 2020-2021 Falcons

 

I am extremely excited to be teaching you all this year and although things are going to be different in school I am hoping that your learning will be as normal and fun as possible! Below are a few notices to remind you of some of the differences you can expect when you join Falcon class and hopefully answer any of the bigger questions you might have.

 

Coming to School

We are asking that children bring nothing to school apart from their water bottle and lunchbox along with a nice smile and positive attitude towards learning. Everything the children need for learning will be provided in school in individual packets. 

 

Breaktimes

Classes will have staggered times and separate areas for outdoor play. Lunches will be eaten in classrooms. 

 

Homework

The homework situation in Year 5 may change over the year but much will stay the same. There will still be expectations on reading, spelling practice and times tables practice at home and we are asking you to keep us updated on this weekly. Some homework tasks may be sent home while other work may be completed online or emailed in where this is possible for you. Keep and eye on this page for updates. 

 

Communication

Under the new policies parents will unfortunately not be able to speak to me at the beginning or end of the day. If you have any questions please email me on our class email address - falcon@balliolschool.co.uk

General Information

 

Class Teacher - Mr Dalton

Other Adults - Miss Houghton, Miss Palmer

P.E - Monday, Wednesday. Under our COVID-19 policy all P.E will be outdoor and on P.E days children must come to school in their kit.  Please ensure correct Balliol P.E kit is worn along with dark hoodies and tracksuit bottoms for the cold winter months. Children MUST have appropriate trainers for outdoor lessons.

 

Weekly Homework Information

 

Under the new Covid-19 policies we are unable to send homework planners home with children. Due to this,  we are asking this year for parents to email us weekly on the class email (falcon@balliolschool.co.uk) to inform us of the continuous homework (spelling, reading and timestables practice) children are doing at home. This will be tracked and referred to during parent consultations while other homework will be tracked by us. 

 

Continuous Homework

 

- Spelling. Practice daily. Children will receive personalised spelling to practise in school but we are unable to send these home. Their spellings will instead be posted on here with homework each week and they can practise them at home. Children may also wish to use SpellingFrame to practise any spelling patterns they find difficult. 

 

- Reading. 15+ minutes daily. Your child will have a school book they can read at home; when finished this book can be returned and swapped but only on a Friday. Please question your child about what they have read. A copy of our comprehension scheme with example questions is posted below.

 

- Timestables. Practice as often as possible (daily). TTRockstars is a great way to do this.

 

Resources for these can be found below.

 

Set Homework

 

-Homework Books, Set every week (Maths one week, English the next) on a Friday. In for the following Friday. These books are extremely precious and it is important they are kept safe and neat. The tasks set in them will link with the weeks work.

 

- MyMaths, Set every week on a Friday. In for the following Friday. These tasks are important as they link with and consolidate the weeks maths lessons.

 

- Topic Task, Set as appropriate.

 

- Examples of other optional home learning tasks may be found on our termly topic news letters.

A breakdown of the written methods for: addition, subtraction, multiplication and division, that we teach at Balliol can be found in the front of the children's homework planners and there are video links below to show the steps to each method. 

Most of the video links are American, with slightly different vocabulary than the children are used to, but they present each method well.
