Year 5

A special End of year video for my Outstanding Otters! Miss Shepherd x

Still image for this video

Transition activities for you to complete for your new teacher, Mr Rodgers.

Please feel free to adapt these ideas or to create your own picture or piece of work which tells us something about you. We can’t wait to see what you come up with! It would be fabulous if you could drop your work into school before the end of term so that we can get busy displaying it ready for our return in September - you could even drop it in for us when you collect your report. Enjoy!

Hi Outstanding Otters and families!


I hope you have all had a lovely Easter and lots of chocolate has been eaten!


Each week, I am going to be adding weekly activities for you to choose from which will be focused around literacy, maths and our new topic, Rainforests. Please remember that there is no expectation to complete all of the work; whilst it’s good to keep your minds active, it is also important that you spend quality family time together! If you are struggling with anything, then you can always access activities from other class pages. For example, we would rather you completed Year 4 maths tasks than struggle with Year 5 tasks. Home learning is new to us all and it's about keeping busy, not struggling with anything!


All of the activities added before Easter are still available to use below the weekly links (the WW2 lessons have another 2 weeks left so if you have been enjoying them please continue!). Feel free to let me know if you are enjoying something different so I can share with others in the class.


It has been lovely to hear what you have been up to, so please keep sending pictures or updates using the link on the home learning page.


I am missing you all lots and hope you are staying safe and healthy!


Miss Shepherd

Spring term - Topic

This term we have enjoyed learning about WW2. The class have had their usual project menu with lots activity ideas which they can continue to work on. We've also included a Science activity where the children had a Scientist/Inventor that they should research. I've included these below.

Western Approaches HQ are offering a series of WW2 history lessons aimed at primary children. For six weeks, they will launch a new film every week which you can access by the link below. All lessons are free and include worksheets that give prompts for further research which the children can send back to them. 


Lessons will include;

Week 1 (Launched March 25, 1pm) An introduction to life during the war and a tour of the secret bunker

Week 2 (Launched April 1, 1pm) Rations and wartime food 

Week 3 (Launched April 8, 1pm) Coding and morse code

Week 4 (Launched April 15, 1pm) evacuees and evacuation

Week 5 (Launched April 22, 1pm) Secret rooms of the secret bunker – not normally open to the public

Week 6 (Launched April 29, 1pm) Wartime entertainment


Have Fun!


Use your imagination....

The Pobble 365 website link below has a picture (every day!) that includes writing and comprehension activities like the one in the PDF below.

Jane Considine, who invented the writing scheme we use in school, will be delivering daily English activities webinars for pupils to complete at home. If you'd like to join the mailing list to receive alerts and information, click on the link below.
This term we have been learning fractions and have been working hard to improve our understanding. I have included a zip file of lots of activities that the children can look at but, please be aware, some of these skills have not been taught yet. Feel free to have a go at them and use the knowledge organisers to support. 
I have included some more knowledge organisers for use if required smiley

P.E. with Joe

We have been enjoying the 5 and 8 minute work outs in school and, during this time, Joe Wicks is offering a FREE workout aimed at kids LIVE on his YouTube channel everyday, Monday-Friday 9am.


Children can use Scratch to create programs - on the site, they are able to create interactive stories, animations, games, music, and art.

More great ideas to keep you busy!
