Welcome Back !!!!

I would just like to say welcome to everyone old and new to Class 5 this year. We have had a great start to the term and the English, Maths and Theme work that has been produced so far has been fantastic. We have really hit the ground running!! We have been learning about place value in Maths and describing settings from the wordless book Flotsam in English. We have also produced a few fantastic pieces of artwork which are currently being displayed around school.

Secondly, below is the first piece of homework for this half term. As you may have read on the newsletter we can not currently send things to and from school, however it is expected that your child completes the homework as we will be discussing it in class. Hopefully in the coming weeks we may have seesaw set up which could make homework a little easier all round.

Homework – both pieces are due to be discussed Tuesday morning.

Creative Arts Round Up

Well done everyone who has been completing work this week. Year 6 have been working hard doing a range of tasks in school and I have had some great bits sent to me from people who are working at home.
Remember to keep going and trying the tasks – you are doing such a great job. See below for a quick selection of what has been happening.
Quick reminder that next week is sports week so dust off your trainers and get ready for some garden fun.

Have a great weekend – Mr B

Into the Woods Roundup

Well done to everyone who has been completing work set this week. Look below for a selection of all the great stuff that has been completed.

Next week the theme is “National Picnic Week” so keep an eye on the home learning blog for all activities

Well done for this week – Mr B.

Oceans Week Roundup 🙌✍️

Well done class 5 on a good week of Oceans work. I’ve seen graphs, descriptive writing, food chains and cardboard sea creatures to just name a few. Have a look below at a selection of what you have been up-to this week.
Remember next week the theme is “Into the Woods”. All work again for this week will be posted onto the home learning blog.
Have a great weekend – Mr B

Welcome to Friday Class 5 🙌🙌👏👏

First of all I need to start by saying that today will be the last time I post daily work on the Class 5 blog. As of next week we are moving to the new “home learning blog”. This can be found above the FS blog on the website homepage.
All activities, challenges and learning posts will appear on there from now on and will be used a the learning tool both in and out of school. Each week will have a particular theme with the first week being “under the sea” which ties in well with World Ocean Day” in the same week. All the weeks will have a set theme with work being based as best as possible around that.
Please however continue to send me pictures and work to the class 5 email like you always have done. I will the collate everything at the end of the week and post work, pictures and videos onto the class 5 blog.

Now today’s learning is as follows.

SCIENCE – I thought for the last day of this topic we would look at different types of drugs.
So your first task is:

WHAT IS A DRUG? Can you explain or give examples of how some drugs can be beneficial and how others can be harmful.

Next task: can you match the drug type to it’s definition?

Third task: can you decide whether these statements are a myth or the truth? You MUST explain why you think that using scientific knowledge and research.

FINALLY with all this new found knowledge I would like you to create an advertising campaign in the form of a poster to raise awareness of the impact that drugs have on the body. Your messages can be anything from the general negative effects on the body, to how to take medicines safely, to highlighting the impact of specific types of drugs.

IF you finish today’s tasks please complete work from previous days that you may have missed.

Last but by no means least thank you to all of you who have sent me worked, commented on the blog and for all the parents who have given such lovely comments. We have certainly tried hard to make lockdown fun. I am incredibly proud of all the work and effort that has been made by children and parents to make this blog what it is

Thank you – have a great day – Mr B

Good morning Class 5 ! 👌👍👏

Hello Class 5 hope we are all fit and well this fine Thursday morning. I can’t believe it is already Thursday – this week has flown by.
Todays tasks are as follows.

MATHS – Below is a picture of William Shakespeare’s house in Stratford-upon-Avon in 1564. My question is “how many rectangles can you see in the part of the house outlined in red?”

HISTORY/ENGLISH – with the geography research you did yesterday around different countries “national dish” I would like you to choose 4 of the dishes that interest you the most and research how they became so iconic and well loved in their respective countries. How far did they date back? Did the have a religious aspect to them? Were they passed on through generations?
Please present your research in a detailed fact-file or information page. I look forward to seeing these later in the week.

ART – Now the smoking and alcohol work got me thinking. I would like you to draw/paint/collage/colour a picture of a healthy lung and a picture of a damaged lung that has been subject to tobacco. Doing these side by side would have an even better effect. You may wish to label what has happened to the lung. Be as creative as you like.

Have a great day – Mr B

Good morning Class 5 and welcome to Wednesday ✍️☔️

Well done to everyone completing the work – I hope we are finding it ok. I woke up this morning and saw rain out of the window for the first time in a long time. What is going on??!!
Today’s learning is below.

MATHS – Have a go at this jumping frogs game ! What is the highest amount of blue and pink frogs you can complete the game with? Send me pictures of your completed game! Can you explain how you did it aswell?I will be interested to see your reasoning Have fun!


ENGLISH/SCIENCE – I would like you to create a detailed leaflet or an information page explaining why smoking is bad for your overall health. You might explain the effect on different parts of the body or how it can effect how well you can exercise. Your work should include DETAILED explanations and diagrams of how these can effect the organs of the body

GEOGRAPHY – A little challenge for you class 5. Can you pick 10 countries and find out their most iconic “national food”. You might then present it by labelling it with string on a world map. You might draw the countries flag and the dish and write why it is it’s favourite dish.
I will leave the creative ways up to you.

I won’t post as much tomorrow as these are longish tasks. Have a great day – Mr B

Good Morning Class 5 – hope we are getting on well with the tasks ✍️

As I said yesterday there wouldn’t be much more posted today as there was lots of work to be getting on with. However there are two tasks below I would like us to complete.

MATHS – Have a go at this challenge – if you don’t know some of the vocabulary – write a definition for it once you have researched it.


Have a great day – Mr B
