Year 5

Hello Year 5. I hope you are all ok and ready for next week when lots of you will be joining us for the first time in what feels like a long time. Myself, Mrs Millington and Mrs Holding are all very excited about seeing you and if you are not joining us, please keep sending the things you have been doing by email - it really is lovely to receive them and see what you have been up to.

As always there are some tasks below for the week ahead. Some of these we will be completing in school but don't worry if you've done them at home as well. I'm still collecting entries for the Spirited Arts competition and also to redesign the Friendship Bench. Well done to all of those who have sent me their entries so far.

Don't forget to look out for your Rainbow Report on Purple Mash - it should appear sometime this afternoon!

Make sure you have a lovely restful weekend with your families if you can. 

Take care, keep smiling smiley

Hello again Year 5. I hope you're all ok! It's been great to chat with some of you on the phone again this week and to hear about all the things you are still doing. Well done o some of the castles I have seen and I have also started to receive entries for the Spirited Arts Competition which look fabulous. There is still another week or so for you to enter this competition so I look forward to getting some more of your designs soon!


I am also setting another design challenge this week. The Friendship Bench on the school yard is looking a little bit tired and drab. We want to bring it back to life - just like we have done with the Totem Poles on the green. I would like you to design a new Friendship Bench. You cannot add anything to it but you can put any design you like on it which you think will represent friendship and also look fabulous. The winning design will actually be painted onto the bench for everyone in school to enjoy. I would like you to email me any designs over the course of next week so that hopefully we can get it painted before Summer. Have fun - there's plenty of ideas online to start you thinking and a template below this letter which you can print out and use if you want.


Task 2 - I know an email has been sent out about an online sports day even on Tues 30th June. The children in school will be taking part in some of the challenges we have become experts at in our athletics lessons earlier this year. These will include speed bounce, long jump, triple jump and throwing. You all know how to do these activities so on Tuesday you can get involved at home and compete against those in school. Simply pick as many activities as you want, do them in the way we have practised at school and record your score. You can email me pictures and any recording of your results if you would like. The link below will take you to the schools sport partnership website so you can take part in whatever you fancy from there.


Don't forget to keep ticking over with you reading and maths work especially angel


Well done to all of you as always for all the things you continue to do with your brilliant families,

Take care, keep smiling & we'll definitely see lots of you soon!

Mr Klee, Mrs Millington, Mrs Holding



Friendship Bench Template

Hello Year 5! I hope you and your families are all well. Thank you again to those of you who have sent me some pictures and emails of what you have been doing - I really do love to receive them. I know my two girls are really starting to miss being at school and seeing their friends and I imagine that some of you will be feeling the same way. Keep doing what you can at home, keep chatting to your friends through all the different ways that lots of you are doing and know that it will happen at some point!


This week your task is very simple and I would like all of you to have a go at completing it:

The link below takes you to our Spirited Art competition.


Have a look at the information and then I would all of you to have a go. Reverend Chris will judge and pick 3 entries per class to be submitted so please make sure they are all finished and ready for judging on Mon 13th July. The school are going to use all the artwork produced for the outside banners around school. All instructions and dos/don’ts are on the above link. When you complete this at home, please send a picture to if you are able to.


I'm really looking forward to seeing a couple more of you next week in Church House, which is where our temporary Year 5 classroom will be for a little while and to seeing pictures of all the things you get up to.

Take care & keep smiling smiley


Mr Klee, Mrs Millington, Mrs Holding

Hello Year 5. I hope you and your families are all well and enjoyed your half term! It's been great to see a few of you in school this week and we have even been back in our Year 5 classroom for the first time in weeks. Hopefully we'll be able to see some more of you over the coming weeks back in school but we'll just have to wait and see. In the meantime I hope that you are still managing to keep doing some bits and pieces of work and activities at home. I will remove all the activities on Purple Mash and put brand new ones up ready for Monday for you to choose from.


I would also like you to start thinking about yourselves a little bit this next week and the things that you enjoy and the things which make you you. I will be starting to think about our Seeds & Gardeners for next year when you will pair up with our new Reception children when that is possible. It would be lovely for them to know a little bit about you. You can complete this work on paper or using Purple Mash and you can include a picture of yourself as well. In a few weeks time we will then use this information to create a poster to send out to the new Reception children. All you need to do at this stage is a fact-file about yourself - you can choose how to set it out and what it looks like. Include as much information as you can.


I can't wait to see the work you have been up to this week and look forward to your emails and pictures which I'll add to the website. As always there are some English, Maths and topic tasks underneath this letter to keep you all busy if you can use them.


Look after yourselves, keep being brilliant, keep smiling. smiley

Take care,

Mr Klee, Mrs Millington, Mrs Holding

School Closure

As school is now closed for the majority of pupils it is vital that learning continues at home. The activities below are designed to consolidate learning which has already taken place and should be accessible for most pupils with a small amount of guidance in some cases. If there are any specific tasks or information for Year 5 pupils whilst they are away from school they will appear here:


I would advise completing a Maths and English activity daily and another topic based task. Pupils can pick from any of the tasks available in any order. Tasks which cannot be completed digitally can be completed in pupils's purple books or anywhere else appropriate. More tasks will appear over time. It is really important that pupils also undertake pe based tasks, art and DT projects and generally enjoy the creative side of the curriculum. There is a lot of value in activities such as baking, playing board games such as scrabble and monopoly and possibly keeping a diary.


Please click on the links below as appropriate: - The majority of work set will be on this online platform. Login details have been provided for all pupils.  There are a number of tasks set already and more will be uploaded as appropriate. I will have access to all work completed by pupils as long as they save it to their folders and will be able to respond to it.


Hamilton Trust - Home Learning Packs for English and Maths. These are an excellent resource to download and work through on a daily basis and are pitched at Year 5 expected level. - Click on the link to bring up a range of quizzes, activities and games linked to a number of relevant topics. - Daily editions of newsround are something pupils really enjoy watching at school and it is full of useful and relevant information.


TimesTable Rockstars - Login details have been provided for all pupils so they can access this as usual from home


Year 5 Long Term Plan - This can be accessed by scrolling down the Year 5 page. It shows which topics pupils have already looked at this year and what is coming next. It might be useful in directing pupils towards relevant activities/content.


Sir Linkalot spelling - An excellent chance to get to grips with this innovative approach to spelling. Passwords have been provided on the letter received a short while ago. 


Read, read & some more - Find some books that you love or maybe that you've never read before and enjoy!


Most importantly and in whatever way you might be affected, I hope you can keep smiling, look after one another, enjoy some family time together and we look forward to seeing you all again soon!

Year 5 have had a fabulous day celebrating all things Roald Dahl! We had some fabulous looking characters and we even had a go at illustrating ourselves in the style of Quentin Blake. We were joined by Matilda who worked with the children in the library and some lucky Golden Ticket winners received an extra special treat of chocolate milkshakes! Well done to everyone for getting involved.
