Online Learning in the Spring Term

Welcome back to Spring Term, Year 5!

I hope you’ve all had a very restful and enjoyable two weeks away from school. As we are not learning in person for at least the next two weeks, school will be taking place online.

This will look a bit different to last spring because we are using two new platforms: Zoom and Seesaw. It is important that these are set up by 9:45 AM tomorrow. Both have great apps for phones and tablets! I am looking forward to seeing you all again over zoom these next couple of weeks and sharing our work on Seesaw.

Here is the daily timetable we will be using (tomorrow may look a bit different as we learn to log on!):

9:45 – 10:15Individual Reading with a carer or sibling
10:15 – 10:30Zoom register and check-ins
10:30 – 11:15Maths on Zoom and SeeSaw
11:15 – 11:30Break
11:30 – 12:15English on Zoom and SeeSaw
12:15 – 13:30Lunch
13:30 – 14:15Foundation 1 on Zoom and SeeSaw
14:15 – 14:30Break
14:30 – 15:15Foundation 2 on Zoom and SeeSaw

Teachers will be using ZOOM (https://zoom.us/) to explain the activity, discuss the work needed and model how to complete, for 4 sessions each day – Class teachers will be forwarding Zoom links by text and email to each parent / carer this evening, for tomorrow (and then daily moving forward).

The first Zoom meeting will be treated like a register, recorded by the teacher and passed on to the office as part of attendance, so we would need all pupils at home to be present for these each day.

SEESAW (app.seesaw.me) will be used more and more in the next few days, replacing the blog, as a way to provide lesson activities, and for pupils to create and record their work, for teachers to observe and comment on. Some activities can be done online and uploaded, and others may still need pen and paper, which you can then take a simple photo of and upload as a record of work. Seesaw will need pupils to setup accounts: teachers will be sending login details for these this evening, that make the process very easy to do.

Please be sure to check for these emails and texts as soon as you can, and for pupils to try to be prepared for using Zoom and Seesaw (by downloading apps or details to whichever device your child will be using). We will gradually ‘build up’ their use over the next few days, and expect some ‘teething’ problems for all involved!

Please contact your Class Teacher using these emails with any issues or difficulties. (Teachers will be available to assist from 8:30am to 4:30pm daily):

We hope you’ve all had a very restful and enjoyable two weeks away from school. As we are not learning in person for at least the next two weeks, school will be taking place online. This will look a bit different to last spring because we are using two new platforms: Zoom and Seesaw. It is important that these are set up by 10:15 AM tomorrow. If you are struggling to set up Seesaw before then your child’s class teacher will be available to assist tomorrow afternoon. Both have great apps for phones and tablets! I am looking forward to seeing you all again over zoom these next couple of weeks and sharing our work on Seesaw.

Here is the daily timetable we will be using (tomorrow may look a bit different as we learn to log on!):

9:45 – 10:15Reading with a carer or sibling
10:15 – 10:30Zoom register and check-ins

Timetable for Year 5 learning

If you are unable to access Seesaw tomorrow (5th January 2021) then these lessons will be on the blog, but you will need access to Seesaw by the following day. Tomorrow afternoon we will be available to help registering for Seesaw and be around to answer all of your questions if needed.

YOUR CHILD’S CLASS TEACHER HAS SENT YOU DETAILS ABOUT HOW TO JOIN THEIR FIRST ZOOM MEETING TOMORROW MORNING AT 10:15 ON YOUR EMAIL AND TEXT THROUGH TEACHERS2PARENTS.

Here is information for setting up a Seesaw 

If you’re using Seesaw for the first time:

  1. Go to app.seesaw.me
  2. Choose “I’m a Student”
  3. Type in the code that has been text to you on Teachers2Parents. This code expires on January 11, 2021
  4. Finish creating your account using your school email address or Google account.

If you’ve used Seesaw before and have an account:

  1. Go to app.seesaw.me
  2. Choose “I’m a Student”
  3. Sign in using your school Google account or email address
  4. Click on your profile icon on the top left
  5. Click on the +Join Class button
  6. Type in the code that has been text to you on Teachers2Parents. This code expires on January 11, 2021

If your child has a place to be in school over the next two weeks then they will join the same learning from school using school devices and will be supported by school staff to complete the learning.

We are excited to see all of you tomorrow morning!

Sincerely,

Year 5 Teachers

Today we are focusing on rounding. Our rounding rhyme can help us!

What is rounding numbers? - Answered - Twinkl Teaching Wiki

This means that if a number in our place value column is 5 or above we round up. If it is 4 or below we round down.

Model:

This image has an empty alt attribute; its file name is image-87.png

As we can see, our number is 56,387. I need to round it to the nearest 100, 1,000 and 10,000. To do that I need to remember my place value columns.

  1. You need to find the column in question – for our first number the 100s (hundreds) column. For our number that is 56,387. Then I must look at the place value column to the right, in this case the tens column. This is where my rhyme helps! I can see the 8 in the tens column is 5 or above so we round up. This means my number rounds up from 56,387 to 56,400.

Activity: Your turn – complete the table of rounding 100, 1000 and 10000 for the olympic attendances:
