Year 5 - Orang-utans


Welcome to our Year 5 Orang-utans Remote learning page.

As 21 Orangs are fiercely producing top learning every day (we know who you are and we love you dearly) all the staff, with Mr Wilson's permission, have decided to make this CREATIVE ONLY DAY!!!.  So please use your time wisely today and check out any links on the extra ideas home page; study something personal to you; learn any new domestic god/goddess lifeskill; just have lots of fun learning for YOU. No need to upload but i will be chekcing Seesaw later just in case there are any fab photos or vids of you cleaning the chimney (Charlie); in the paddling pool, bbrrr!; gymnasticing in the lounge; loving pets; or just dancing! And other.


If the weather improves, then I'm herding the flamingos back out onto the lake to free up the folly as a meditation centre.  

This Day's Learning Overview

1st April, 2020

Physical - own type of physical fun. I shall be jousting in the upper meadow.

Reading - own type of reading fun.  I shall be finishing the 'How do you do Seesaw' and starting 'I can't use a computer but you can't teach' mindfullness guide.

WritingPURPLE MASH!!  Do Not Write Today.  Do Viking stuff Monday-Wednesday.

Maths - only if baking, playing a game, tuning the radio, it's the only way you can dance or paint (by numbers).

Topic -  eat one if not suffering from an allergy to nuts.

Computing - only to read that you don't have to do anything.  Or communicate with friends, or upload fun stuff for teacher. Or for fun because you are a bit cheeky geeky.  Or to play Donkey Kong or Zelda.

Creative - all day long.  

top teaching tips

Hi Orangs and parents, there are many sites now offering free resources for children during this isolation period, have a hunt around and find one you like.  Oxford Owl is one i have used before and has lots of books to read. 

This link is to an online tutorial by Mr P, who came to Ridgeway and trained the staff regards ipad software this September.  It explains how to photograph text, read aloud and / or thought talk or comment over it, then upload to Seesaw.  

Parents, my Maths link today on the remote learning icon is a site called Khan Academy.  It is free to join and offers lots of tutorials on the particular strand of Maths that i will be setting as learning.  Please join and then feel free to use these tutorials to extend learning even further.  (I tend not to use Khan Academy Kids so ...)

Why not look up David Walliams 'audio book a day' on line.  Read the Terrible Triplets and others.  Free, so no need to sign up.  (Can't believe I'm recommending David Walliams - what am I doing?)
