Welcome to 5B!

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:

  • 5 a day 
  • An English activity
  • A Maths activity 
  • A Topic activity

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!

Fantastic research Jaydn! Thanks for sharing that with us! You could always make a poster or fact sheet to display your interesting research.

Jaydn(about a week ago)

Nikola Tesla, was born in Croatia, in 1856, he invented over 700 different things such as AC electrical system, neon lights , the Tesla coil, which is used in radios and xray which are things that we still use today. He worked along side Thomas Edison. On his 75th birthday he even got a birthday wish from Albert Einstein. He died from coronary thrombosis on January 7 1943 , in New York City where he lived for over 60 years. He was 86 years old The Tesla cars are a company named after him. He is my favourite scientist.
