Week 3

Week 3




You may heard that the government have launched a new series of lessons for children during Lockdown. I've had a look at the first week and they seem to be really useful, so this week, I want you to work though the daily lessons on their website. This week is about setting descriptions. The first two lessons focus on reading some setting descriptions, then there is some work on features of a text, parenthesis and a writing task to finish the week. Throughout each lesson, they also focus on spelling- this week's rule is words ending in able. So, just follow the link and complete the lessons in the correct order.



Complete the reading activity at


You can now access e-books on the website. The details on how to access this are in the spelling section below. 


Please ensure that you continue to read every day. Aim to spend 30 minutes reading. If you're stuck for ideas of what to read, I've added 28 books recommended for children in Year 5 further down the page. 



I've set some NEW grammar tasks for you to complete on Purple Mash. Go do them!



Go to and click on  the big pink "my class login" button at the top. Use the username CLEHY5 and the password year5 to log in. Then, select "extra practice zone" from Read Write Inc spelling, filter Year 5 at the top and complete the "Word endings" task.  




Maths will be set though the White Rose Maths Hub website. Go to the website below and complete the daily activities for Week 1 (not Summer week 1, just week 1) on decimals up to 2 d.p. There is a video and accompanying worksheet for each day of the week. The answers are also there for you to check your won work. If you're stuck, drop me an email or use the contact box at the bottom of the page to ask for help.




Keep going with the Joe Wicks PE sessions- but be nice to your parents and don't make them do them all. 



Our topic this half term would have been crime and punishment through the ages. Over the next few weeks, I'll add some History work around this topic but, for now, I want you to design a machine using mechanisms designed to punish or torture someone who has committed a crime.The machine must have moving parts. You will need to sketch your machine and label the different parts, explaining how it works. You can try to build a model of your device, but you do not have to. This work is designed for the whole half-term, so it is not something you need to rush. Take your time, think about how it would work and come up with the best possible ideas. 



Keep going with this!

Use the wesbite to select a Scratch project to complete. If you attend Coding Club, continue from where we were up to, otherwise start at Module 1. You can either download Scratch to a PC or laptop if you have one or access it online at
