Week beginning 6th July


Happy Monday, Merlins!


Many of us have now had our first few days back in school and we hope you've enjoyed being in the classrooms as much as we have. It's been so nice to see those of you who have been in school - but we are naturally missing all those still learning at home. It's not possible to all be together in school at the moment but we are looking forward to speaking on the phone with those at home this week. 


Here is this week’s work:

  • English: this is the first of two weeks using Mary Howitt's spooky poem "The Spider and the Fly". We hope you enjoy it!
  • Maths: daily lessons will be uploaded with links to the White Rose Maths website. PLEASE NOTE: The website link will take you to White Rose’s current unit but we are working 2 weeks behind. Therefore, please go to the bottom of the page and find SUMMER TERM WEEK 9 w/c 22nd June. That will have the work for this week. White Rose now charge subscription fees but College Town has signed up for this. Therefore, we will download the relevant activity pages and upload them to the class pages every day.
  • Maths & English CGP books: please continue to work through these as and when you can. You can use the Maths books to support the learning you’re doing on White Rose or to practise skills we have covered so far (place value, addition, subtraction, multiplication, division, line graphs, fractions). For English, please work through it at your own pace, choosing tasks you want to practise.
  • Wider curriculum: there is a list of ‘topic’ tasks, which are optional. We would encourage you to have a go at some of the tasks as they may give you some variety and will help you develop skills in other subjects, too.


At the top of the class pages, you will find the four ‘wellbeing’ activities. If you wish to have a go at them, they would be really useful for keeping calm and helping you through these very uncertain times.


Don’t forget to try and send your work over to us – we would love to see it!


It's nearly the summer holidays and you're nearly at the point of transition from Year 5 to Year 6...therefore, it's really important that you try and work really hard in the next couple of weeks so you can go into the summer break feeling ready for the challenges and excitement ahead. 


We hope you and your families are all safe and well.

Take care

Miss H, Mrs B and Mr P smiley
