Year 5

Year 5 Weekly Update                                                     Week commencing 13th July 2020

Hello Year 5, sadly we are now approaching the end of the year. Hopefully your belongings in school should be making their way back to you this week and you now all know your new class teacher for your life in Year 6. Although our year together was cut very short, we thought you were all awesome!

You have so much to look forward to next year and you will be an amazing year group to set the standards for the rest of the school. We hope you have a lovely summer holiday and we very much look forward to seeing you all in September. In the meantime, have fun, keep safe and be good!

Please continue to contact us via our email

Please find below the suggested timetable of activities to provide some structure over the next week if you wish to follow it.  Please be aware that lots of these resources are on our school website, within the associated subject folder. Please choose subjects you enjoy doing, but try to also do subjects you may find more of a challenge too, you can share your sense of achievement with us! You do not have to cover all of these tasks and you don’t need to complete each task as if it is one lesson – take them as far as you would like to on one day, then you can come back and continue with them the next day.



This week we’re globetrotting for our poetry.  We’re off to Japan.

Watch this week’s video to find out more.

Haiku Poems

When you have watched the video we would like you to use all the poetry skills you have learned over the past two weeks to create some fantastic haiku and tanka poems for us to read.

The poems you have sent in already have been absolutely amazing, thank you. We look forward to reading this week’s wonderful creations, please share them with us:

In school we have been completing the daily live workout by Joe Wicks at 9 – 9:30am. It’s a great way to start the day.

You can always catch up with the live recordings later or look at his 5 or 8 minute workouts on his YouTube page.

You may also want to look at doing some children’s Yoga to give a peaceful moment to your day.
