Namaste Year 5!
So once again we have reached the end of another week. How fast are they flying by? From our chats on the phone and on Purple Mash, I can tell everyone has been really enjoying the topics and getting very stuck in to them. I am so glad; you are all such amazing home learners! Well done everyone :)
Special Mentions today to Sabrina, Dylan and Orson for sharing parts of their literacy work on our Purple Mash blog. Really great stuff guys and it always helps to support others.
Here is a link to Sustrans. They come to school and run 'Bike it'. They do competitions every week to win a new bike or scooter. Last week, someone at school won a brand new bike. Just follow the link and take part in their competition for a chance to win.
Please send your favourite learning in to me at: firstname.lastname@example.org
Our Learning Today
Lo: to make predictions
So we have watched around half our film so far and we have found out quite a lot about Baboon but we also have many questions with no answers yet. His past is a mystery but we have been given some clues. Today I would like you to make some predictions about the things we do not know. Use the information we know, be creative but also be sensible. The director has given us lots of clues about his past life but not about how or why he is on the moon. We also don't know how he plans to get off the moon.
I would like you to write these questions out and answer them with your ideas.
Why do you think Baboon is on the moon?
How did he get there?
How does he feel?
What is his life like?
Does he want to be there?
What is he thinking of doing?
Lo: to problem solve using reflection and translation

Ok for our last day of reflection and translation we are going to do some problem solving. Please be brave and have a growth mindset. Have a try and do not worry if you make mistakes. This is how we learn. Read the question carefully and take it slowly. I want you do at least 3.
Gather some family members and start the session off with a game. Now explore this sticky question.
Ok so here is this week's stimulus. I want us to watch this video and then discuss what it teaches you. How does it make you feel? When have you been resilient in your life? Are there ways that you can be more resilient? Is there something you would like to try to get better at? How will you feel if you achieve your goals? Let us know your ideas on Purple Mash.
Have a great day and weekend! Theo :)
