Welcome to Maple

Hello Maple!

On the left, you will see the new tab, "Week Begin. 18th May". Please go to this tab to access the new Home Learning Tree, suggested timetable of work, and all the resources. The new Home Learning Tree is titled: "W/c 18.05.20 Maple 5/6 Home Learning Tree". Please look at this file first, and then "Suggested Timetable of Work" second (EDIT - this document is now at the very bottom as it was updated). The rest of the documents are the resources needed - uploaded in chronological order to match the suggested timetable. There is only one week's worth of work, as we are on half-term for two weeks after this week - when no work will be set.

As said previously, each household is different, and everyone's circumstances might vary greatly. Please do not feel pressure to do everything I have suggested. I am just making sure there is enough for those that are able in these circumstances and want it. Everyone is doing what they can, and doing fantastically well!

For maths, there is a link (on the Home Learning Tree) to take you to White Rose that we have been using. From there, choose either Y5 or Y6. We are still out of sync with the dates on the website, because we did not start using this resource until a couple of weeks in. We are beginning, "Summer Term Week 3 (w/c 24th May)" from Monday 18th May. If you have rushed ahead and you actually are in sync with the White Rose dates, please tell me. The resources are no longer free from that point (only the previous weeks are free), but the school has an account so we can upload the worksheets if necessary (the videos will still be free on their website!). There are optional, extra worksheets for a couple of days, in case you want a challenge! Remember to choose the level you are comfortable with: Developing (red star) are questions 1, 2 and 3. Expected (blue star) are questions 4, 5 and 6. Greater Depth (orange star) are questions 7, 8 and 9. I will also start a new Rockstars battle.
For English, you may want/need to continue with the previous Talk4Writing work - that is fine, it was a lot! Otherwise, on the suggested timetable, I have put different activities for different days - either Pobble365, BBC Bitesize or a SPaG Mat. All the relevant resources are also in the, "Week Begin. 18th May", tab.
Instead of Humanities this week, I have uploaded a PSHE lesson called, "Relationships: Our Special People". There is a PPT to work through with accompanying PDF activities.
For science, we have come to the end of our, "Properties and Changes of Materials", topic. I have uploaded a fun (but messy), "Bicarbonate Volcano", activity. If you have the time and resources, this could also be an art project.
Our Twitter account is still active if you want to follow us for extra ideas and resources @Maple_BV. If you have a specific question or need a reply from me, please email: This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.
Stay safe, wash your hands and stay at home! Hopefully, we will be back together soon.
Mr. Payne
