Good Afternoon Year 5!


Good Afternoon Year 5,


Hope you have had a wonderful day and have managed to complete ll the work set for today. I have uploaded the relevant answers, so make sure you self-mark your work against it before uploading onto Seesaw.


We only have a few more days until the summer holidays, so please keep your energy levels up until Thursday, we are all so proud of how you ALL have been completing your work independently. Well done! 


Now rest up and make sure you log in on time tomorrow morning for some more learning...


 “Anything is possible. Anything can be.” – Shel Silverstein

Believe it’s possible. Sometimes it’s just that simple. Yet, some people will never truly believe.

Have faith. But just because it’s possible, doesn’t mean it will be easy. Know that whatever life you want, the grades you want, the job you want, the reputation you want, friends you want, that it’s possible.

Nothing is off limits. Everything is within reach. Anything can be.


Have a good evening,

Mrs Akhtar


Joe Wicks is back for another week to motivate us for our love for PE. Please subscribe to his YouTube channel below to take part in his live PE lessons from 9-9.30am. Remember it is important to stay fit and active even though you are indoors.

PE Competition

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 has devised a competition (please see document below) which is open to all year groups. You will need to submit your entry via Seesaw, tagged under PE so Mr Reynolds 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.

L.O: To improve my work using the best sentence structures I know.


Today will be about proof -reading your work to ensure it is of a Year 5 standard. Using the Year 5 TAF, please highlight and demonstrate what you have achieved in your writing. A copy of the TAF has been uploaded for you. It will almost be like a checklist for you.

This is an example of editing:


As the path began to open into a dusty, large chamber, I gasped in shock at the incredible sight that befell me. There lay a guiled gold sarcophagus, which probably belonged to a long-forgotten king, in the centre of the room. It was still perfectly intact, shimmering beneath the layer of dust that lay on top of it. Trembling with excitement and nerve, I crept closer and gently brushed a layer of dust off the casket. From beneath the dust, meticulous hieroglyphics could be seen all over the large coffin. As I leaned down to touch the sealed sarcophagus, my torch blinked off.

Good Morning Year 5!


Good morning Year 5,


Welcome to the last week of this school year! This year has gone rather fast, hasn’t it? I miss you all! However, I am glad that I can still communicate with you through this messaging system and also on Seesaw.  Right, a tip to keep a positive attitude is to: have something to look forward to after school. You may be tired after a long day of studying, but having something planned after school can make the day look a little brighter. Whether it be with your family or friends, a night of fun can make the day go by a lot faster.  By pencilling in some fun time several days a week, you can find a healthy way to balance your studies and personal life. Now back to work... 


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
