Good Afternoon Year 5!


Good afternoon Year 5,


So, the answer to yesterday’s joke is: The library because it has the most stories! Get it? Hope that made you giggle… ok a little bit at least?! I have another joke for you: Why didn't the sun go to college? The answer shall be revealed tomorrow!

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!

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.



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.
