Love yourself, your whole self.

You are not here to be perfect, you are here to be you.

Be who you are and you will attract the right people around you. 


Have a great evening,

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.

After you have thoroughly edited your entire writing piece and made all your corrections (and possible have read your work aloud with someone at home), please publish your work in your best handwriting with marginal errors. Take your time, we would like your work as neat as possible. This will be your last publishing for Year 5.



Please use the link above to access the daily Maths lessons on BBC Bitesize. When you click on the link, you will see various subjects, click Maths and follow the instructions on the screen. Home learning focus will be on there daily. Each lesson will include a variety of activities, worksheets and videos. Complete all your learning in your book and Seesaw the work you have been doing daily, after self-marking the activities (answers will be found under the relevant activities). 


Once you have finished your learning on BBC Bitesize, it is crucial you spend at least 20minutes 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,


Right, who followed the ‘tip to keep a positive attitude’ that I shared with you yesterday? Did you find it helpful? What kind of fun activities did you do yesterday? How did that impact your mood? Moving on, I have another tip to keep a positive attitude is to: focus on the long-term instead of the short-term. When a conflict arises - either with a family member or with a friend - your immediate reaction might be to jump to the defence. You want to protect yourself and attain respect, which is a good thing. However, the more conflicts in which you partake, the more negativity will surround your life.


Instead, take a second to step back and view the situation from a third-party perspective. Will participating in this conflict be beneficial in the long run? Or, will it simply cause unnecessary stress and negativity at the moment? Often, a person is simply having a bad day, or facing stress. Rather than snapping back, you can practice empathy. This might help you get to the root of the problem and end the conversation on a positive, lighter note. This is the last of tips of how to keep a positive attitude. I hope you found all these tips beneficial and I hope you can apply them to your life. Anyways, let’s start our work for today…


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
