Please use the link below to complete your Yoga activity for today. If you can, try to do this at the end of your learning. It will be a great start to your weekend. 



This term, as part of your reading learning, you are required to use Bug Club everyday for 30 minutes and then spend the other 30 minutes of your reading session to complete another reading activity we will provide.


When using Bug Club, it is important you are answering the questions carefully, by referring to the text to find the correct evidence to support your answers. Your teachers will be monitoring your answers carefully, so ensure you are putting in the same effort that you would at school.


When answering reading comprehension and vocabulary questions, remember to be using taught techniques from school and annotate the questions and text, remembering to also refer to the text in your answers to support your points. A good tip is to read the questions first before you read the text, so you have a rough idea on where the clues for the questions and answer may be. 


It is important you are reading everyday to help you develop your reading skills as well as learn new vocabulary, which will make your spoken language and writing even better! These skills will help you later on in life and out of school, not just for your learning in school so please ensure you are reading regularly.

Example of highlighting:

Once you have finished your learning, it is crucial you spend at least 20 minutes on MyMaths or Times Table Rockstars (swapping between them each day), to ensure you are reviewing your learning and revising your maths skills making them stronger. Please let your teachers know on Seesaw if you are struggling to log on.

Good Morning Year 5!


Good morning Year 5,


Bookworms – That’s the answer to yesterdays joke! Today, I have a tip to keep a positive attitude: avoid spreading gossip. The mere act of saying things - whether or not they are true - behind someone’s back that you wouldn’t say to their face is negative. It can be hard to avoid gossip, but simply refuse to get involved. You’ll actually find that you feel lighter when not carrying the weight of secrets. And, when you’re not talking about other people, you can feel more confident that others are keeping their lips zipped about you. And that’s a reason to feel optimistic. Anyways, back to studying! Don’t worry, you are only few hours away from starting your weekend. Keep up the determination and keep striving hard for your learning – it will be worth it in the end!


You will find all the work for today under its sections, please complete them to the best of your ability. If you require help, please ask adults or elder siblings for support, there are also many different resources online that can help you. You may also ask teachers for help via Seesaw. 


Please note: some answers to the tasks will be available at 3pm. Make sure you come to check the answers and self-mark your answers.


Happy learning!


Miss Ahmed
