Hello 5B!

Even though we are not together in the classroom, I am still your teacher and you can contact me through the below guestbook if you have any questions. Remember to only use your first name. Please let me know how you are getting on, or even silly things that you would like to tell me, like about what you had for your tea or what film you have watched! Keep in touch :)

This week you will need to log on here everyday to find your work for each day.

This work needs to be completed in the exercise book in your work pack. 

The answers will be uploaded the next day, so that you can mark your work.

Everyday you will find:

There will also be other activities set throughout the week. 

Please think about how we set our work out in class - date underlined, rule off and neatest writing of course! 

I will post other activities that you might like to do also. Keep busy and keep safe!

On the Tuesday 30th June we have an action-packed day full of challenges and activities for children and families to take part in, whether they are in school or at home!
We would love for you and your family to take part in, what we hope, will be the biggest Virtual Sports Day in the country! Check out the resources at and practice the activities leading up to the 30th.

This week we will be looking at homophones. We talk about homophones quite a lot when we are in the classroom. You may remember that they are words that sound the same, but have a different meaning or spelling. 

There is a video and a few games for you to play on Active Learn. Click on the link to take you there now....

If you need to contact myself or Mr Morris at all, please do via the Year 5 email address and we will aim to get back to you as soon as we can! You can also use the above comment box to get in touch, and we encourage that all children do this where they can. The email is to be used by the adults.

Thank you

It is really important at the moment that you are still keeping active. Just think, when you are at school you have morning playtime, lunchtime playtime, afternoon playtime and then many of you play out after school too! Every week you will find PE activities to do on on our website on a Monday and Thursday (our normal PE days). Fancy doing something another day too? Then check out the below document, which has lots of links and ideas of things that you can do at home. It is updated regularly so make sure that you keep checking it.
