Key information

Arrival/collection

Our arrival time each morning is 8.45am and we leave at 3.10pm. Parents with siblings are encouraged to drop off/pick up at the later time.

What to bring to school

The children should bring in a water bottle which they will take home each day as well as their packed lunch (if they do not receive a school lunch). These will be kept at/under their desk. They can also bring in their own hand gel if they wish. They do not need any other equipment such as pencil cases, stationary etc as they will have everything they need at their own desk.

PE days

Our PE days are Tuesday and Friday. On these days, the children should come into school wearing their PE kit. They do not need to bring in their normal school uniform to get changed into, they will just stay in their PE kit all day. As the vast majority of our PE needs to take place outdoors, they should wear their normal PE t-shirt and a tracksuit/appropriate sports clothing that is suitable for all weather.

Homework

The children will be asked to work on some Topic-based tasks which will be in a grid format on a sheet for them to take home. We encourage you to take photos of any finished tasks and tweet them to us @BishopCEPrimary or send a photo on Class Dojo. We will then be able to give verbal feedback and share the work as a class. Please see the link below for Topic Homework for Summer 2.

Summer 2 Topic Homework Grid

Spellings

Spellings will go home every Monday and there will be a Spelling Test every Friday on these words. Please see the link below for our spellings for this half term.

Summer 2 Spellings Booklet

Reading

The children will take their Accelerated Reader book home (with their Reading Record book) every day. These should then come back into school every day also.

We hope you had fun baking at home last week and that you enjoyed seeing the photos on Twitter as much as we did.

See below for a grid of 'kindness' activities we have put together for you to try at home during half term this week. We have also included below some ideas for the mindfulness activity which is suggested on Wednesday.

By including our twitter handle @BishopCEPrimary in your tweet, we will be able to retweet your photos onto our Twitter page. We hope to see your efforts!

We have also included below a link to a new story called 'While We Can't Hug' by Eoin McLaughlin and Polly Dunbar. We are all finding it difficult to be away from loved ones at the moment, so hopefully this will be a nice story for you to all share at home this week.

Our regular Home Learning will recommence from Monday 1st June.

Thank you for your continued support. Stay safe, take care of one another and have a lovely half term.

*MEET THE BUNNIES!*

Some exciting news from the Mordue household that I wanted to share with you…we now have two bunnies! They are so cute and adorable that I thought you might like to see them (see the picture below). The brown and white bunny is Pablo and the grey and white bunny is Albie. They are eight week old mini-lops. They are brothers and best of friends (at the minute!)

 

English

Open the PDF below; ‘The Climb’. Work through the activities in the slides.

The main task is on the slide named ‘Sentence challenge’…

Imagine you are the climber on the mountain. Write a description of your climb using adjectives to describe what you can see and how you feel. Do you reach the summit?

 

Then, I would like you to read the newspaper report below, which is about a man who climbed the 14 highest mountains in the world in 189 days – amazing! Answer the questions after reading the newspaper report. Answers are also included on the final sheet.

You could then do some research on mountains. Produce some writing about what you find out such as a report or a fact sheet. You could even present your work on mountains as a double-page spread in your exercise book.

 

Reading

Keep trying to read every day! It’s great for relaxing and important to try to keep this up.

I thought you might like an update on how Pablo and Albie are doing. They are both doing really well. Joe and Kate are doing a great job of looking after them; feeding them, cleaning their hutch and playing with them. They are still small but seem to be growing a little each day. They love eating hay and rabbit food pellets and they have started to do little bunny hops in their outdoor area (apparently this means they are happy which is good!). Here is a photo:

Archived Work - Summer 2 Week 5

Weekly Twitter Challenge!

One of the highlights of our school year is our Sports Day. Unfortunately, this year, we are of course unable to run our usual Sports Day. However, we had some exciting news recently when County Durham School Games announced that they are running a Virtual School Games this week! The Virtual Games consist of five challenges which are all easy to practise and complete at home, with very little equipment needed. The idea is to practise these challenges at home this week. Then, on Friday 3rd July, have a go and then enter your best score using the Virtual Games website. Can you beat you own personal best by Friday? You can also earn points for our school by taking part in each challenge. Maybe BIR can get the gold!

More information, including details of all of the challenges and how to submit results and photographs, can be found on the Virtual School Games website: https://durhamcls-ssp.co.uk/vsg20/

We would also love to see you practising and taking part in these challenges this week, so please tweet @BishopCEPrimary with your photographs, using the hashtag #CDVSG20. If including children's names in tweets, we ask that you use initials rather than full names for online safety. We would love to see you get involved with this! Good luck and most importantly...have fun!

 

Week beginning Monday 29th June

Hello Year 5,

I hope you all had another good week. Well done on your Home Learning tasks!

It was great to see some of you on our Zoom catch up on Friday! Thanks for joining in – hope you enjoyed seeing everyone one and catching up!

Below are this week’s Home Learning tasks. Remember, you can send me photos of your work on Class Dojo or tweet them @BishopCEPrimary. Keep it up and have a great week!

Mr Mordue

 

*BUNNIES UPDATE*

I thought you might like another update on Pablo and Albie. They are still doing really well and their little personalities are really starting to come through! Pablo is very curious and moves around a lot whereas Albie seems more shy and quiet – but he loves to snuggle into Pablo…very cute! Albie has also started to rest his ear on Pablo's head! Here is a photo from this week:


 

English

Open the PDF below; ‘The Predator’. Work through the activities in the slides.

The main task is to continue the description of the predator, using the story starter slide to help.

 

Then, I would like you to read one of the texts below about another member of the ‘big cat’ family; ‘Tigers’. The texts/questions get harder (1 star = easier, 2 stars = medium, 3 stars = harder). You can choose which text to do but I think you are all easily capable of the 3 star text! Answer the questions, using the information in the text. Answer sheet also included.

 

You could then do some research on leopards or big cats. Produce some writing about what you find out such as a report, a fact sheet, a double-page spread, a PowerPoint or an information leaflet. I have included a slideshow about leopards below which might help.
