Teacher Updates

Happy Friday my wonderful Ravens!
I cannot believe the Summer holidays have arrived! The past few months have flown by! I am so sad that our year together got cut short, but I am so proud of all of the work and effort you have put in during lockdown. I have loved seeing the work you have done, the pictures you have submitted, the videos in assembly and all of your lovely messages to me! 
Below, I have attached a little newsletter for you to read. Remember that Mathletics challenge Miss P has set - who is going to complete the most?! I'm sure it will be one of you...
Thank you all for making my first year at Riverside a lovely one - what a gorgeous first class to have here!
Have a wonderful summer break - stay safe and keep on being kind. I still have those kindness hero stickers waiting! 
Lots of love, Miss McFerran xx

Happy Wednesday, Year 5! Wednesday's mean one thing at Riverside.. Mr Dodd! He very kindly recorded an assembly for us, and it was shown at 9:30 this morning! But, in case you missed it, I've attached it below. Two of our favourite songs this week - My Lighthouse and Nothing is Impossible! Sing along and teach your family the dance moves! 
Also, Chester Zoo have put together lots of resources that you can be doing at home, between doing your work packs! There's art, songs, videos and games. Have a look... Chester Zoo Resources.

Good morning Year 5!

I hope you have had a lovely weekend with your families. Please keep working through your work packs this week and going online to test out your Times Tables or do some activities on Purple Mash! I’ll be checking your online accounts and seeing how you’re doing!

On Friday, we will be looking to announce our 5-star of the week during a live assembly at 10am.

Here are a few bonus challenges to keep you occupied:

  1.  Keep yourself fit and healthy by joining Mrs Weatherall and Archie for Wake Up Shake Up at five-to-nine and then join @thebodycoach Joe at nine o’clock for his daily workout!

  2. Have a look through your spelling lists in your work pack – go through and circle the ones that you find tricky. Every day this week, pick 10 words to focus on. Can you write a paragraph about what you’ve done each day and include these words? Get somebody to test you on them!

  3. We started to draft our Raven drawings at the start of the term. I have posted the picture below. Draw a picture of the raven and ask somebody at home for some feedback – how could you improve? Can they give you one area to focus on? (for example, the wings or the beak). Then try to improve on it with a new draft. Take a picture of your first and second drafts and upload it to our twitter feed - @Riverside_Pri with the hashtag #AlwaysARiversider so we can see your amazing art!
4.  Complete at least one act of kindness every day. Whether that is tidying your room, washing the dishes, setting the table or anything else to help out at home! Keep a list of all the lovely things you’ve done to share with us when we get back to school!


Keep checking back on our pages for more exciting challenges and updates.

Work hard and stay safe! xx

Hello Year 5! 
Sorry I haven't been in with you this week, I hear you've been working hard for Mr Walsh! Keep it up. 
With the news that school will be closed next week, I just wanted to remind you of a few things!
  • You took your work packs home last week. There's lots of different things in there... there's some English comprehensions (remember, full sentence answers!), there's spellings and handwriting, lots of Maths activities and some History work too! Work through it in any order you like, but take your time and give it your best - as you always do!

  • Read, read, read! You can never read too much. Read the Accelerated Read books you took home, or read some of your own books too. Read to somebody else or have somebody read to you! You can still test at home too: Renaissance Place

  • Be a Times Tables Rockstar! You've got your log ins for this. Get testing at home and when you come back to school, you can blow Mr Walsh and I's socks off with your incredible work! I wonder if anyone will manage to knock Oscar off the top spot...? Times Table Rockstars (school postcode: CH44 6QW)

  • Be KIND! This is our new class motto, remember: if you can't be kind, be quiet. This counts for anywhere you are - in school, out with your friends, at home! Be kind, show everyone at home that you can be a kindness hero - help out around the house when needed or with your siblings. I can't wait to hear about what kind things you get up to, I'll have the stickers ready!
Last but not least... keep safe and well! Wash your hands regularly and look after each other at home. 
I will be updating this page regularly with things to do or any updates - so keep checking back! 
Take care, I can't wait to have us all back together again soon! 
Miss McFerran xx
