UPDATE: Mini books
Just to let you all know that this is a fun creative task and it can be on any topic you choose. The British Library weblink below tells you how to make your minibook and then you could fill it with a story, poems, a recipe – anything you choose. You can then tweet or email your book to the British Library and they are hoping to ask an illustrator to draw a bookshelf of mini books. Wouldn’t it be amazing if one of our books was featured?
Hello Year 5,
Thank you for all of those who have emailed us with your news. We love reading messages, seeing photos or video messages – you’ve been singing, reading poetry, playing instruments, baking and investigating! Remember that the story COMPETITION closes on Friday so please email your entries in before then (maybe the willow tree looks like this?).
There are up to 5 English and maths lessons for you to complete. There is also a link for the worksheet and answers for each maths lesson. We’ve included SpAG, science, geography and a special art task for you.
Remember the Northamptonshire Virtual Games at https://www.northamptonshiresport.org/school-games, the WFPS family tasks and the class reader videos.
We’d love to receive an email from you before Friday when half term starts – tell us which books you are reading!
We miss you all very much. Take care,
Miss Taylor and Mrs Byfield

Task 1 Science – Metamorphic Rock
Tell us in an email or on the blog what you learnt about this different type of rock. Some of you might be future geologists!
Task 2 Geography – Sustainability and plastics
This is a topic that is close to all our hearts at Weston Favell. Before lockdown we explored different renewable energy sources and how they could reduce climate change. Plastic is having a massive impact on our world; thinking back to the island where Kensuke was completely self-sufficient. Do we really need all the items in our household? Could we reduce the plastic in our lives?What is your view? Enjoy this live lesson from BBC Blue Planet.
Task 3 Art – Create a mini book
The British Library is asking all children to create a mini book as a record of this time in lockdown. The library is asking children to share their homemade miniature books with its Twitter account @BL_Learning using the hashtag #DiscoveringChildrensBooks, or send them by email to email@example.com. It will commission an illustrator to create a virtual bookshelf to display the work.
