12 Jul Home Learning: Year 5 w/c 13 July
Hello Year 5!
We nearing the end of one of the most unprecedented school years that we have ever experienced. This week, I have created a list of activities for you to choose from and work through as you please. I thought that this would be the perfect time to reflect on the past and to dream about the future.
It’s important that we continue to stay active throughout the summer holidays, both for out mental and physical health. The links below are wonderful resources to use, but REMEMBER that fresh air and a walk are always a good option.
Create a vision board/ poster which includes your hopes for Year 6. Include your own personal goals and dreams; these can be as little or big as you like. For example; making new friends, focusing on exercising more, becoming more resilient, learning a new skill, improving on an existing sport or skill, etc. Make it colourful and include a positive quote- you can put this up in your room as a reminder and to keep you motivated throughout the summer.
Write a letter to your future self. Reflect on this year, talking about some of the positives and challenges that you have faced. Give yourself some words of encouragement or some advice to help with future challenges that you may face. Put the letter into an envelope and seal it.
Give the letter to an adult and ask them to keep it until the end of the next school year (2021). Then, open and read it.
Take some time to answer and reflect on the following questions:
- What is something we did this year that you think you will remember for the rest of your life?
- What is something you accomplished this year that you are proud of?
- What was the nicest thing someone in our class did for you this year?
- What was the most challenging part of this year for you?
- Where is your favourite place in our classroom (or school)? Why?
- If you could change one thing that happened this year, what would it be?
- What are three things you did this year to help your classmates?
- What are the three most important things you learned this year?
- What is something that was hard for you at the start of the year but is easy now?
- In what area do you feel you made your biggest improvements?
- What is your favourite part of the day in our class? Why?
- What is something you taught your teacher or classmates this year?
- Of the books you read this year, which was your favourite? Why?
- What was the best piece of writing that you did this year? Why do you think it is your best?
