All resources available for download can be found at the bottom of this page.

 

Monday 13th July:

 Task 1: 10 minutes (minimum) of independent or shared reading, followed by a reading response activity from the reading journals hand out (available below).

 Task 2: Write a letter to my future self

✎ You are at the tail end of your time in Year 5. Year 6 awaits, with new challenges and exciting opportunities! With this in mind, write a letter to your future self to ope and read one year from today.

✎ Here are some questions to think about and include in your letter:

  • What are you looking forward to about Year 6?
  • What subjects do you think you are going to like the most?
  • Which clubs do you want to get involved in?
  • Who are the people you want to get to know better or meet?
  • What are you worried about regarding Year 6?
  • What will you miss about being in Year 5?
  • What are you hoping you will have achieved by the time you read this letter?
  • What is the best piece of advice you can think of for your future self?

✎ After you have written the letter, put it away in a safe place and open it a year from now. You will delight in seeing how far you have come, and once again be able to evaluate your goals for the future.

✎ A writing plan for your letter is available below. You may use this as a guide to write your letter, or use it to plan your letter before you write it.

 Task 3: Spelling: Statutory Spelling Lists and Activities

All activities from the Nelson Spelling Pupil Book should now have been completed since you started in Year 5. You should now primarily focus on ensuring that you can spell as many of the words from the Year 5 / 6 Statutory Spelling list as you can.

Remember, the best way to practise spelling is by taking a 'little and often' approach. 5-10 minutes every day is better than one 1-hour long session each week. It is important to practise the same words repeatedly in order to make them 'stick'.

 

Tuesday 14th July:

 Task 1: 10 minutes (minimum) of independent or shared reading, followed by a reading response activity from the reading journals hand out (available below).

 Task 2: Write a letter to your future teacher

✎ We would like you to write a letter to your future teacher. This will help them to get a head start in learning about you, and finding out what you're all about!

✎ Here are some ideas of what to include in your letter:

  • Introduce yourself.
  • Talk about the things you enjoy about school as well as the things that don't take your fancy.
  • Talk about your interests, hobbies, favourite things and fun facts about you.
  • Talk about your wishes and hopes for the coming year.
  • Mention anything you're worried or concerned about.
  • Mention anything that helps you to learn at your best.

✎ Post or email your letter to one of the addresses provided below:

  • email: yearsix@stokenchurchprimary.bucks.sch.uk (remember to address it to your new teacher)
  • Teacher's name, Stokenchurch Primary School, George Road, Stokenchurch, HP14 3RN

 

Thursday 16th July:

 Task 1: 10 minutes (minimum) of independent or shared reading, followed by a reading response activity from the reading journals hand out (available below).

 Task 2: Write a reflection about my year

✎ Download the reflection task cards available below. Look through the cards and choose 3 or more items that you would like to reflect and write about.

✎ The task cards are more like a guide to help get your mind going. Feel free to write about anything else that stands out to your about your experiences in Year 5.

✎ Try not to rush this exercise as it is a chance for you to take a good look at your year, and take note of your successes and the lessons you have learnt. You can also use your reflections from the PSHE activity yesterday.
