Have a lovely weekend!

Good afternoon year 5,

Black History Month

Next week we will be celebrating Black History Month at school. We will be learning about the history of the slave trade in Britain. Complete the reading comprehension - 'The Transatlantic Slave Trade'. We will mark it together next week. Everyone was given a copy to take home. It can also be found attached below.

Also, remember you can participate in our Black History Month competition. Find out more in the document below!

Mental Health Awareness Day

On Thursday, Mrs Waine led an assembly based on Mental Health Day. We looked at all the ways we can look after our mental health. Mrs Waine would like children to think of different things they could do to help them feel calm and ready to learn. You could send a picture to office@stmaryangels.co.uk of your child's activities. This could be them reading, going for a walk or playing a board game. 

Returning reading books

Books can be changed every Monday and must be returned on Thursday so that they can be 'quarantined' in a seperate box for three days. Children's reading records should be signed daily to show they have read at home. Remember, 15 minutes a day can make a BIG difference to children's confidence in reading. Children can choose which book they want to read according to their reading level. 

Have a lovely weekend,

Science Homework - 18.09.20

Due Date: Monday 21st September 2020

The Peppered Moth

Our Science unit of study this term is ‘Evolution and inheritance.’ The evolution of the peppered moth has been studied in detail over the last 150 years. At first, almost all of the moths were light coloured, however overtime the population of moths became darker in colouring.

We want you to investigate why these changes happened. Please use the questions on the sheet below to guide you in your research.

You can present your information as an information leaflet, a word document or complete it in your homework book. You will need to use the internet to help you find the information. You may want to add some pictures to your work. Please try and complete your work independently. Unfortunately, you won’t be able to bring your work in to be marked.
