Week 6

Update- I inadvertently added a Classroom Secrets reading comprehension that you'd already done. I've updated the link now with the correct one.



I'm once again impressed with the writing you've sent to me, but I'm also surprised. Not one of you wrote a letter to me persuading me to let you come back to school! Maybe you aren't missing it as much as I thought you all were. 


This week, the National Academy are moving on to diary entries. We very briefly touched on diary entries earlier in the year, but not in any great depth. So, this will be a good task for you to complete this week, particularly the focus on formal and informal language, which we looked at during the Pupil Prime Minister task.



Double reading again this week- have to keep you all busy, busy busy!.

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. 




Moving on to the Year 5 activities this week. They're there on Purple Mash just begging for you to complete them, so don't let them down. 



The words in the National Academy (with an -ably ending) should be your focus this week. Try to get a few of them into your writing. 


While we're off, you should also try to recap the Orange words that we've covered so far. Take between 6 and 10 a week to revise and test yourself on them. Don't move on to any new words as we have already covered enough of the words for this year and we would be recapping the ones we've already covered if we were in school. 




Maths will continue to be set though the White Rose Maths Hub website. Go to the website below and complete the daily activities for Summer 2 Week 2 that continues work on calculating with decimals. There is a video and accompanying worksheet for each day of the week. The answers are also there for you to check your own work. If you're stuck, drop me an email or use the contact box at the bottom of the page to ask for help.


I've also set some work on Diagnostic questions to recap the activities covered in the past few weeks. 



This week, choose one video from Just Dance per day and do the dance!


Also, Joe Wicks, obviously!



I've finally found something that allows me to set some work for our current science topic. Check it out!



Following our work on VE day last week, we're returning to our Crime and Punishment topic. Having started with the Romans, we're now moving on to the Anglo-Saxons. The resources are in the section below. 



Let's do some work to keep our geography skills sharp too. I've attached a document with work from the Oddizzi website on place knowledge. The login name is CLEHY5 and the password is yearfive


Design Technology

Keep working on your design for a punishment machine- if you've already designed it, now you might want to think bout what materials you will need to make a model of it.

Also, 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



This week's top task: Build something!
