Good Afternoon Year 5!


Good Afternoon Year 5,


I hope that you have had a great day full of fantastic learning.

Please ensure that you have self-marked your work and uploaded your daily learning to SeeSaw. Remember, you are uploading only 1 piece of learning from each subject.


Brain breaks are essential for your wellbeing so please use them moderately. A good night sleep is crucial for your mental and physical wellbeing so please do not stay late on screens.


I’m so excited to see some of you upon your return to Gascoigne next week. Keep safe and look after yourselves.

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.


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.


Today you will begin writing. Firstly, choose an appropriate title that captures the purpose of your writing. Introduction: When writing your introduction, explain what the end result will be (what the instructions will help the reader to do). This will usually include questions to engage the reader and the use of adjectives and emotive language. Imagine you are writing instructions for a fellow classmate who is attempting to make the model for their D.T lesson. It’s important to keep your audience in mind.


Equipment: Here, you will be writing a list of things the reader will need, such as the equipment and other materials necessary for to make the canopic jar. This could be things like different coloured paper, glue, empty pot, newspaper, etc. Remember to include your subheading and write the equipment out as a list with bullet points.


Please carefully edit your writing when you are done against the success criteria and upload to Seesaw for your teachers to check. A model will be available for you at 3pm.



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 Five,


I hope you are all keeping safe and well. I’m so excited to see that some of you are returning next week, I’m looking forward to seeing your smiles! I’m very excited now, as it is only 2 days until my birthday, I wish circumstances were different and we could celebrate in school. I’m extremely proud of how hard you are all working and coping during this difficult time. Keep up the hard work!


Please make sure you are reading for 30 minutes every day using Bug Club, accessing MyMaths and TTRS these will all really support your learning.


Please keep safe and look out for my afternoon message at 3pm.
