Here is our wordle from our zoom session this morning. For our last session next week please have a think about something that you are looking forward to in Year 6 and anything you are apprehensive about.

Hello everyone,

We hope you have all had a good week. Well done to those children who have completed the MyMaths activity. There are still quite a few of you who have not done it yet - there is still a little bit of time! Please find time to complete the activity - it is highlighted in yellow.

This week Mrs Berger is going to explain to you how to use a protractor. Don't forget to prepare the 2 items for our zoom call on Monday - 1) a word to describe what lockdown has meant to you. 2) a photo/explanation of a skill/talent you have learnt during the past few months.

We hope you have a fantastic weekend and we are looking forward to seeing more great work from you next week.

'See' you Monday!

We are incredibly impressed with the effort you are putting in and it is great to see such hard work from you all in such tricky times.

The Planets

An animated short film about 12 invented planets - you may want to watch for inspiration before writing your planet description.

Example of planet setting description:


This planet was a maze of thick, spiralling branches. Golden yellow leaves dangled down from them and flickered like candle flames in breeze. Sweet scented pollen drifted through the archways created by the curving branches. Beneath, on the carpet of red dust grew strange, exotic, unfamiliar plants, which glowed bright neon colours. The creatures that lurked in this tangled forest, spun on a single point like a child's spinning top. Their surface was silver-white and rippled like a liquid, but kept it's shape like a solid. They emitted  the most beautiful and enchanting music as they spun.

Please hold on to any cardboard recycling items for the project week after next  (wb 18.05.20). Items could include empty cereal boxes, amazon boxes, shoe boxes, etc.

chromatography in science

Crime scene investigation using chromatography - who stole the painting - ask the children how they worked it out,

This week we have been learning different strategies that can help us with mental subtraction and addition.

We have been learning some techniques which will help us to solve tricky questions in Maths. We have looked at doubling and halving to help solve tricky multiplication questions and learning the rules of divisibility so that we can quickly identify which numbers can be divided.

In English this week, we have been learning about recount writing. We have given the children wide experiences of different recounts to familiarise themselves with what is expected when they write their own next week.

During computing, we have been developing our spread sheet skills using the 'how many' tool to calculate the number of vowels in words.

#helloyellow for Mental Health Day!

Today was Saxon Day in year 5 - we began the day by finding out about the Saxons, playing Saxon games and investigating Saxon artefacts.

This afternoon we looked at Saxon weapons and armour.

Today we found and used natural materials to dye cloth just like the Anglo Saxons did!
