Staying in is the new going out... an idea for over the weekend (and beyond)!
As we are all stopping in, we thought we’d share a field trip idea for us to share. There’s no task. If you wish to chat about it, visit the Chatty Space blog on Purple Mash. There’ll hopefully be a new one each weekend.
Edinburgh Zoo has live video feeds on a number of its enclosures, including the pandas, penguins, rockhopper penguin, tigers and koalas.
The live webcams are available to watch via the Edinburgh Zoo website.
Some areas of the enclosures are out of view of the cameras, and to be patient if there are currently no animals on view.
PE this week will be available at 9am everyday on YouTube from The Body Coach TV. https://www.youtube.com/user/thebodycoach1 There are also some children's exercise videos here.
White Rose Maths (which we use in school) are producing daily videos, tasks and answer sheets which you can access at: https://whiterosemaths.com/homelearning/year-5/ There is an activity for each day this week and more will be added each week.
We know how much many of you enjoy reading David Walliams. The World of David Williams is releasing an audio story from The World’s Worst Children every day for the next 30 days. Head to the link below each day for the latest story. After you have finished listening, get creative. Remember you can use any tool on Purple Mash or work offline in your exercise books. If you want to show it us, then you could also photograph it and email it to me (Mrs Smith)
Plus there's a ttrockstars battle set up between us and Mr Gruffydd's class- we're losing at the moment. We need reinforcements.
