Year 5 Hall of Fame 

All our home learning tasks are shared via our Seesaw app. At the beginning of each half term, the home learning challenges grid will be uploaded to Seesaw. The grid contains a range of activities and specifies the number of each type of activity (maths, writing and creativity) to be completed. Children may complete the tasks at any time but must have completed the specified number by the end of the half term. All completed work (or work in progress pictures!) can be shared via Seesaw so achievements can be celebrated. At times, teachers may ask children to bring their work in to school. The learning challenge grid for each project is shared below, as well as some examples of the fantastic work completed by the children. The 'hall of fame' gallery is updated at the end of each project to celebrate the children's achievements.

'Time Traveller' Learning Challenges Grid

During their 'Time Traveller' Cornerstones project, children chose two pieces of project home learning to complete, including three written tasks, two maths challenges and a creativity task. Children could choose to write a diary about their time travelling adventures; to create an advert/poster for a product of the future or to create a leaflet about growing up which could be given to younger pupils. Other choices for creative home learning projects included creating a vintage photograph using photoshop techniques and props; making a time capsule and creating a scrapbook page for a specific time period.
