Hello Year 5! And here it is, your LAST day of remote learning! 

Wow! Can you believe it Year 5? You have completed the end of Term 4, and the whole of Terms 5 and 6 in remote learning form! You have done so well! We have been so impressed with the learning behaviours you have shown in your home learning AND the outcomes you have achieved with some of your work. We loved having our phone calls with you over the weeks and getting to see your fabulous faces again over zoom! It's been a joy to learn with you. You should be very proud of yourselves, Year 5, we definitely are!



Word of the Day: Tranquility 

Look up what the word means, what word group it belongs to, place it accurately into a sentence and work out what prefixes/ suffixes could be added (remember this last one doesn't always count!). 


09:00 - 09:30: Reading.

Read for 15mins or to the end of the next chapter in your book.


09:30 - 10:30: Mathematics. 

We have completed all of our topics in Maths for the year - wow, well done you, Year 5! 

To warm-up, spend some time on TT Rockstars 


Continue creating your Mathopoly game that you started yesterday. Have a go at playing it with people at home if you have not done so already! 

If you haven't started creating your own board yet, design and make your own Mathopoly board game! You will need:

  • A mathopoly game board, with questions that focus on 1 of the key operations (addition, subtraction, division or multiplication!). Decide how many points the players will get for answering the questions. 
  • A selection of 'Chance' and 'Challenge' with extra questions to answer. 
  • A scoring board, so the players can keep track as their playing! 

Use the original to help you with your design! 


10:30 - 10:45: Break/ Snack/ Exercise. 

Sports Day Practice: Plan a sports afternoon for your family! You will need 4-5 activities. This could be skipping, an obstacle course, or beat the goalie! How will you score them? What refreshments will you offer? Will you have a rest station?


10:45 - 11:15: SPaG:

Have a go at The Obstacle Course Catastrophe: SPaG Problem-Solving Game! 

Read through the given instructions and have a go at each SPaG task. Each one will provide you with a clue as to who the suspect is! 


11:15 - 12:15: English/Writing.  

You may or may not be going on holiday the year, but what would be your dream holiday or staycation?

Design a poster, showing what the place would look like! 

  • Where would you stay? A treehouse, a tent, a cave by the beach? Really describe it or brainstorm key words! 

Create a timetable of what you would do every day! What food would you eat? Who would you go with? Would you need special clothes or equipment? 


12:15 - 1:15: Lunch/Exercise. 

Try to get some fresh air if it is safe and appropriate to do so.


1:15- 1.30: Quiet Reading Time.

Read your own book! 


1:30 - 2:45: Enquiry: A more chilled afternoon... 

We know you love a wordsearch, so we have found 2 different ones for you to complete this afternoon, on Ancient Egypt! 


2:45 - 3:00: Philosophical Question. 

Come up with your own philosophical questions during the summer holidays! Write them down and bring them into school next year. We would LOVE to see them! 


Yesterday's Q: Name a positive, a negative and an interesting fact about lockdown. 

Mrs. Hudson: A positive was cycling when there was no traffic on the road. It was so peaceful. A negative has been not chatting face to face with many people and hugging. An interesting fact is that COVID-19 stands for CO= Corona, VI= virus, D=disease and 19, was 2019 when the first outbreak occurred. 

Miss Martin: I think a positive of this whole experience is the highlighted importance of kindness and community. So many people have stepped up in wonderful ways, in order to help others around them who may be vulnerable, shielding, a key worker etc. We need to help one another in times of adversity. A negative would be not being able to see our loved ones for such a long time... We know it's for the best of the community and our families, but it doesn't making the feeling of 'missing' someone any easier. An interesting fact... apparently Zoom went from having 10 million members in December, to a whopping 300 million in April! Well, we are all Zoom masters now! 


Have a truly wonderful and well-deserved rest this summer, Year 5! It has been a pleasure to learn with you! We look forward to seeing your faces around school in September! yesyes
