Good Afternoon Year 5!


Good Afternoon Year 5,


Not enough, I have to go back tomorrow! That’s the answer to yesterday’s joke! Woah, did I hear you say you agree? I mean if you want I can set more work for the weekend? Just joking! I know you’re itching to start your weekend! I’ll try to be quick. Today, I have a tip to keep a positive attitude: take real breaks. Currently, in a busy day of home learning, it can sometimes be difficult to find time for a serious break. That means leaving the workspace, having a meal, and putting away all work-related information. A break - even for 15 minutes - can re-energize you and make you more motivated to continue your work for that day. Give yourself time to refuel your positivity, and you’ll be sure to end the day on a better note.


As mentioned earlier, the answers to the tasks can be found under the appropriate sections; please self-mark your answers. It may also be helpful to write a self-reflection under each task on what you have learnt today and any targets you may like to set yourself. 


Have a good evening!


Miss Ahmed


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. 




Hi Everyone! We have some exciting news...


In September, we are going to be creating sporting houses, of which each one of you will be allocated to, to allow us to host more intra-school sporting competitions and continue increasing your physical, sporting and competitive opportunities. 


To enable us to name the sporting houses, Mr Reynolds have devised a competition (please see attached) which is open to all year groups. You will need to submit your entry via seesaw, tagged under PE so I can have a look through. 


You will need to submit your sporting heroes and explain why they should represent one of our houses at Gascoigne - give as much detail as you can. We will then choose 5 of these heroes to represent our houses and the 5 children who submitted the winning entries will win a bag of PE goodies!


Deadline is Wednesday 22nd July! So get started and good luck! 


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.

LO: To know how to organise ideas around a theme


As you walk, you discover a sarcophagus. Which is open. Describe everything you can see and how you are feeling now. As you walk, you discover a sarcophagus. Which is open. What can you see inside the sarcophagus? Has it got something inside it? Is it empty? If it’s empty, where is the mummy? Describe everything you can see and how you are feeling now.


What do you do? What are you thinking and feeling? Include appropriate fronted adverbials and include use of powerful, emotive language. Don’t forget to link your ideas using fronted adverbials and linking phrases (think of how you can build tension).


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.
