Year 5 Mrs Graves/Mr Brady

Good Morning,

 

I hope you are all keeping safe and well. 

 

I'm sure you remember me talking about how you can get both online and audio books from the library when we have discussed how important it is to keep reading. Miss Morris has just forwarded an email to me which I have copied and pasted below about how you can log on to all the resources at Boston Library. I know some of you had a pin number already, but for those of you who haven't it explains how you can get hold of one. 

 

While Boston Library may be closed at present you and your family can still access a range of free online library resources for adults and children using your library card number and PIN including ebooks, eaudiobooks, emagazines and emusic. You can also get free access to Encyclopaedia Britannica Junior to help with your home schooling projects. Visit http://bit.ly/lincslibs and choose from the online resources menu on the right hand side of the page.

 

If you are not already a member of the library you can join online at http://bit.ly/LincslibsJoin and get a temporary membership number and PIN that will give you access to all their fabulous resources. You can also follow them @Lincslibraries on Facebook and Twitter and join in with activities such as a virtual Lego Club, Craft Club and weekly story times.

 

 

I hope that helps to explain how you can access the resources and remember to keep reading. 

 

Take care 

 

Mrs Graves

If you are looking for some daily Maths activities this is a great place to start. White Rose is the scheme we use to plan for your child's learning so the style of questions will be very familiar to them. Different challenges everyday!

Here are the Powerpoints that you will require for your Science and Geography tasks. For your Science you could research other Tim Peake videos too.

In order to continue to develop your child's Maths learning, we have signed up to TTRockstars' sister company, Numbots, for a 60 day trial. Please see the attached letter.

Today, we have been looking at air resistance and gravity. The children created a fair test to discover which parachute was better; A5, A4 or A3. The children created their own parachutes and found the bigger the surface area the slower the fall.
