Week beginning 18th January

Hello Year 5,

We hope you've had a lovely weekend. Can you believe another week has gone by and we're half way through January?!


You'll find the work to complete this week below. Thank you for the work so far, we can tell you have been working really hard.  It was amazing reading your Oliver Twist opening scenes and seeing your database records in Computing.


Please remember that you still need to use Reading Plus and TT Rockstars throughout the week. We are logging on and checking everyday. Well done to those of you who have been using it already. 


Mrs Clayton has made two videos of her reading the last two chapters from 'Goodnight Mr Tom' for you to listen to, to finish our last class reader. You will find these by clicking 'Children', 'Video Resource Centre', 'Year 5 remote learning videos'. You can follow the story on the screen whilst Mrs Clayton reads it to you if you like. This can count towards your 'Reading for Pleasure' task on a Monday afternoon. We shall both be recording ourselves reading different Ancient Greek Myths (which was our new class reader for the Spring term) throughout this term so make sure you keep popping back to watch the newly uploaded videos. 


Please can you make a big effort to send us your work on a daily basis. We are on the end of the email address and we are ticking off who submits their work on a daily basis. Due to the changing guidelines sent by the government and authority, we now have to ask that you please send your work to us daily (rather than weekly as some of you may have previously arranged with us). 


We hope you enjoy this weeks lessons. We are looking forward to viewing the work you send us this week. 


Stay safe,

Mrs Clayton and Miss Prescott laugh

This Weeks Timetable

Good morning Year 5, 


We hope you are well. Thank you for the huge effort you have been doing at home with your online learning. We are so impressed with all of your hard work and we love receiving all of your emails showing us all of your hard work. 


We have been talking and we thought it would be fun to have a times tables competition. On TTRockstars, you shall find that we are completing a battle of the bands tournament. All you have to do is log onto TTRockstars and complete the garage or studio challenges that you would normally complete. The points you get in that test will go toward the class score. The competition will end at 3:30pm on Friday the 29th January (next Friday). We shall announce the winning class on the following Monday morning! We hope you enjoy the task!


Have a lovely weekend. smiley
