When you have your scores, please send them to me by email so I can count them and add them to our class's results. The sheet is a word document so you can fill it in and send it back to me. If you have any pictures or videos of you completing the activities, please send them in. Have fun! :)

Health week - Maths (29/06)

It's all about setting your personal best and then trying to beat it! The other document, called 'Personal challenge', includes a link that will provide you with new challenges every week. Remember to record your scores and challenge yourself to do your best! Have fun!

Summer 2 Literacy

There is no reading comprehension for week 3, so make sure you are reading 20 minutes a day.

Summer 2 Week 1 to 4 - RE
Summer 2 Week 1 to 4 - Topic (History)

Bonjour Year 5, I know you guys are absolutely fantastic at speaking French so I thought we could continue practising together! I have set set up an account for our classroom on duo lingo. This is a super fun app to learn languages! This is not compulsory but is available for you if you would like to practise a bit at home. The instructions to join our classroom can be found on the attached document. Make sure you name your account so I know who has logged in! Let me know if you need further guidance to set up your account! I hope to see a lot of you on there! :)

Update 01.06.2020
Unfortunately, Year 6 won the 'Battle of the Bands' competition against Year 5 on TT Rockstars. However, a big shout out to those individuals who worked extremely hard over the half term to complete their learning: Bethany, Lia, Noah, Isla H, Michael and Zara! I am VERY proud of these children for trying their best! Let's see if more out of our class of 30 can develop their TT Rockstars skills this week!

Update 22.05.2020

It’s the May half term! Well done for working hard at home. Your challenge this half term is a ‘Battle of the Bands’ on TT Rockstars. As a special competition Year 5 and Year 6 will be competing against each other to be champions of times tables. We should all have secure times table knowledge by the end of Year 4 – so everyone can take part! The ‘Battle’ begins on Saturday 23rd May at 8.30am and you can play as many times as you wish until Monday 1st June at 8.30am, simply just play any zones on TT Rockstars.  Who will win? Year 5 or Year 6? Good luck! The winners will be announced on Monday 1st June.

Update 14/05/2020
I have to add a little update today to say how proud I am of these guys who have had a go on TTrockstars this week: Michael, Lucas, Amber S, Isla H, Isla K, Jack, Beth, Maeve, Oliver! Well done you! Keep up the fantastic work! :D

Update 11/05/2020
Please feel free to send me any pieces of work you are proud of! I'd love to see it!
Also if you have lost your password/username for TTrockstars, mathletics or spellodrome and need reminding of them, please don't hesitate to contact me via email.

Update 08/05/2020
Well done to Isla H, Isla K and Amber Smith for using TT Rockstars in May! What SUPER STARS!
Can I please remind all of you to try to have a go at using it for at least 30 minutes a week. Times table knowledge is a great skill to have! :D

Update 04/05/2020
If you came to collect a pack for this week, please ignore the tasks set for Friday as it is a bank holiday. The reading and maths tasks for this day will roll over to next week (Maths for 11/05 and Reading for 15/05). Thank you!

It gives you an example of 'What A Good One Looks Like' so you can get some inspiration to write your own story. The document called 'story planning sheet' is the sheet you need for Tuesday's task. It will help you to plan some SPAG features to use when you write your story later this week.
