For all children at home, I will post activities daily for maths and literacy on Seesaw. This will be exactly the same as the work being completed by the children in school. It is extremely important that you do the work at home, so that you will be keeping up with the content that we cover in Year 5. The work will include an explanation or introduction that hopefully prepares you for the independent activity. If you find that you are struggling with the work, please send a message and we will get in touch.
If you have any problems getting onto Seesaw, please contact the school office for support with this. If you are only able to access Seesaw on a phone, an option is to do the work on pen and paper then take a photo of what you have done as evidence. For anyone needing paper, you can collect exercise books from the school entrance.
I am looking forward to seeing what we can achieve together!
Computing – Week beginning January 5th
This half term we are thinking about databases. What do you think a database is?
A database holds lots of information about different things.
Log into Purple Mash.
Search for ‘2investigate’
Click on the app and open, then select Aliens from the menu
This will now open a screen which shows lots of pictures of Aliens
Click on each Alien to find out information about them.
To the right of the + button at the top of the screen are 3 icons. Click on these to see what information you can find out. It’s just the same but easier to see.
Open the PDF below and see if you can answer the questions.
