PROJECT LAUNCH - EVACUEE DAY!

 

Project Launch of a Child's War - our project this term. Children came dressed as an evacuee, some with their suitcase of belongings. In Geography we looked at a map of Europe and located the UK, Poland, Germany, Austria, the Czech and Slovak Republics. We tasted 1940s food, spam, potted meat and jam sandwiches plus scones. I was impressed how the children tried new foods and gave their opinion on these. The children also made gas mask boxes and watched how children learnt how to wear them before the war. 

I hope you enjoy the photos we took, where will all these evacuees go?!

Summer Spellings - Year 5 and 6 Statutory Spellings List

Hello Class 10, 

 

I can't believe this would be the last full week together in year 5. As the summer term draws to a close, we thought it would be nice for you to reflect on the year and create a healthy, positive mindset ready for September. There are some lovely activities for next week. Please feel free to email me any of them so I can see what you have found most memorable. 

 

I  have uploaded the year 5 and 6 statutory spelling list as your 'Summer Spellings.' It would be a great idea to learn these over the summer holidays ready for year 6. These sheets will also give you an opportunity to practice your joined handwriting. 

 

I can't wait to see some of you back in school for your transition mornings! 

 

Be sure to take care of yourselves over the summer. 

Miss you, Miss Farr blush

Hello Class 10, 

 

It was lovely to speak with some of you and your parents this week. Sounds like you are all taking this experience in your stride. I will be calling again next week (6.07.20) to let you know what day you will be invited in for a transition morning. It will either be Monday 20th July or Tuesday 21st July. I am really looking forward to seeing you all back in school and catching up before we break up for our summer holidays. Most of you seem positive and are ready to get back to school which is brilliant. You will have a chance to meet your new teacher and mix with some of the people that are going to be in your class next year. I can't believe you are all going to be year 6's!

 

The resources for next week are above. 

Hope you all have a good weekend! 

 

Miss Farr smiley

Hello Class 10, 

 

It's that time of the week again. I hope you've all been enjoying the sunshine this week. I've tried to make the most of it after I've finished work by doing things like: eating lots of BBQ food, going on bike rides, having fish and chips on the beach and paddle boarding (yes I fell in and yes it was cold!)

 

We're gradually getting back to a more 'normal' way of life. Football is now back on our televisions and from July 4th even more places are opening like cinemas, restaurants and zoos - due to the new 1m social distancing rule. Please continue to be safe and mindful of how you are behaving both in your houses and around your local area. 

 

Next week's work is above. I haven't received many emails and as always I've love to hear from you even if it's just to say hello. 

 

Miss you, 

Miss Farr

 

 

 

Hello Class 10, 

 

Hope you are all doing okay. This week has absolutely flown by, I can't believe it's Friday again and we're so far into June already. Next week's home learning and resources are above. As always, if you need anything, please email me. 

 

Miss you, 

Miss Farr smiley

Hi Class 10! 

 

It's that time of the week again! Not enjoying this weather, let's hope the weekend brings some sunshine. Here's next week's activities. As always, if you need anything please feel free to contact me. 

 

Missing you all, 

Miss Farr smiley

Hello Class 10!

 

Well this week has been a bit of a shock to the system being back in school full time. I have drank a lot of coffee and been asleep by 8:30pm every night. Although it's taken some getting used to, it has been good to get back into a routine!

 

I have uploaded next week's timetable and activities above. The children back in school have realised first hand how important it is to keep your brains and bodies active. Therefore, please try to complete as many of the tasks as you can, it will help prepare you for September and help make things easier in the long run.  

 

Any questions, news, worries or anxieties, please don't hesitate to get in touch with me, we are a team and I'm here to help in any way I can. 

 

Missing you always, 

Miss Farr blush 

Hello Class 10! 

 

Hope you are all well and keeping safe. Monday is the start of our last half term in year 5. Therefore, the activities are going to be designed to help you revise what you'll need to know moving onto year 6. Please try to complete the activities the best you can. There are notes for adults so that you can receive support at home, alternatively you can always reach me on Y5@woodlands.academy. 

 

Hope to see you soon. 

Missing you all,

Miss Farr :)

Hello Class 10. 

 

Today we would be breaking up for May half term so for next week we have decided to give you a little break from your usual home learning timetable. Instead, we have done something similar for what we did at Easter - giving you a selection of fun activities that you could do at home and outside in the sunshine. For most of the activities I have uploaded an example, instructions or a template to help you - but also feel free to add your own ideas. 

 

Enjoy and let me know how you get on!

 

Take care, 

Miss Farr smiley

 

Wishing a 'Happy Birthday' to anyone who's spending it in lock down.

Hello Class 10, 

 

Next week will be week 7 and the week before we would be due to break up for May half term. This Wednesday coming would have been Sports Day, so we have planned for you to get moving at home. The weather is meant to be brilliant so be sure to make the most of it! Use the tabs above to find the activity sheets needed for each day, some days the activity may not require a sheet - just make sure to keep referring to the weekly timetable. 

 

From Boris's speech it's likely we will be reunited at some point during the stretch towards the summer holidays... I don't know about you, but I am excited to get back to Woodlands!

 

Keep smiling and showing kindness where possible. 

Speak soon,

Miss Farr smiley

Hello Class 10, 

 

Hope you are all enjoying bank holiday in the sunshine. I'm getting into the VE Day spirit and having afternoon tea with lots of home baked treats. 

 

Hope you are all keeping okay. Fingers crossed it wont be too long now until we can start easing back into some sort of normality. Keep positive. I've been starting each day writing down 3 things I am grateful for no matter how small. I find it takes your mind off what you haven't got and allows you to focus on the things you have. Today I am grateful for: 

1. Having hot water for my shower (I am living with 6 adults and its often cold by the time it's my turn). 

2. The nice weather and the smell of sun cream. 

3. Spending quality time with my family.

 

It's my birthday on Wednesday 13th May - It would be lovely if you could send me an email with a picture of you smiling so I can see that you are safe and well. 

 

Hello Class 10. 

 

It's been lovely to hear from some of you this week. Please keep the emails coming with pictures of what you have been up to! I can't believe it's May already... hopefully the weather will be getting warmer again soon (fingers crossed). 

 

I think everyone is now feeling the effects of not having a routine. This week I've managed to create a little bit of normality by teaching yoga on zoom. It's added some structure to my day and given me a little taste of normality again. Maybe you could try planning your day the night before with things you'd like to achieve and see if it helps you wake up feeling positive and focused? (The more enjoyable these things are the more likely you are to do them)!

 

I'll post next week's work above. Remember, if you have any questions or you are struggling with anything I can always give you help via email or send you additional resources. 

 

Keep smiling class 10! 

Miss you lots, 

Miss Farr

WC 27.04.20 - Week 4 Home Learning Timetable

Hello Class 10!

 

I don't know about you but this week seems to have flown. I hope you are all keeping safe and well. I understand that some of you are finding it difficult to work from home. Just do what you can do. The most important thing is that you are keeping positive and doing activities which help you get through this time the best you can. I will be at Woodlands Academy on Tuesday and Wednesday next week so I will give you all a call and check in with how you are getting on.

WC 20.04.20 - Week 3 Home Learning Timetable

Hello Class 10! 


I hope you all had a lovely Easter and managed to fill yourselves up with plenty of Easter eggs. As we would have normally been going back to school next week, there is a new weekly timetable and activities for you to get stuck into. Please try your best to complete the tasks as these are designed to help keep you on track with your learning. Again, any problems or questions please don't hesitate to email me.smiley I'd also be keen to hear your thoughts on the 'Woodland's Staff' video. I still can't get that High School Musical song out of my head! 

 

Missing you all, 

Miss Farr. 

Hello Class 10! 

 

Today would have been the day that we would have been breaking up for the Easter holidays. Therefore, we have decided not to set you any 'school work' for the next couple of weeks. However, Mrs Pearson has kindly made a timetable of fun activities for you and your family to enjoy should you be at a loose end. I have found an easy baking recipe that you could follow and I will also upload some mindfulness activities starting with '40 acts of kindness cards' (as I think we could all do with being as kind to each other as possible during this time). 

 

I have been trying to keep active by going on a daily bike ride, doing yoga, or a dog walk with my cockerpoo (Sonny). I have baked healthy(ish) treats for the household. My banana bread went down a treat :) I'd love to hear more of what you guys have been up to and please feel free to let me know if you would like me to upload any additional activities.

 

Keep smiling and stay positive. 

Speak soon, Miss Farr  :)

WC 30.02.20 - Week 2 Home Learning Timetable

Hello Class 10! 

 

I hope you have all been enjoying this week's learning pack. Going forward, I will be updating this page with new weekly timetables and activities. Due to having been advised to stay home at the moment, school won't be printing the worksheets for you to collect; however, this is something we may look into again at a later date. Therefore, if you don't have a printer, you will be able to complete the activities straight into your exercise books. Remember, if you have any questions or you would like to tell/show me what you have been up to, send an email to Y5@woodlands.academy. I would love to hear from you. Take care and speak soon. 

 

Missing you all, 

Miss Farr :)

We dressed up in Tudor costume, explored some of the rooms and carried out jobs in the medieval kitchen. We even re-enacted the Tudor banquet! It was a fantastic experience.
